Fantasy and reality are about to collide…and I’m totally not ready for it.

I turn my room into an online fantasy world while hiding my identity behind a sexy maid’s outfit and a pretty mask. And it works. It gives me the armor I need to fend off my mother and sister’s condescending remarks.
Everything was going great…until my gorgeous neighbor who I’ve been secretly pining over recognizes me on one of my live feeds.
After a completely humiliating confrontation, I make it my life’s mission to avoid him at all cost. Which is near impossible since we live in the same building—that, and the fact that he’s determined to hunt me down…
6. British Banger (A Cocky Hero Club Novel) By Jennifer Woodhull
Publication Date: May 31st, 2020
British accents should come with a warning label. When they’re attached to deep, baritone voices that belong to sexy, cocky men, you should have to sign a waiver.
Most people wouldn’t touch short-term rental properties, but since my business partner took off with my client list, I need every deal I can get. Enter, one insanely sexy and completely exasperating Camden Reid.
The smug executive found fault with every property I showed him. Too cramped. Too feminine. Too far from a decent pub.
His demands were ridiculous, and I couldn’t wait to be rid of him and his British bangers.
Somewhere between the first property and the zillionth, though, my attraction to Camden grew impossible to ignore.
His insane demands finally met, the arrogant Adonis proposed we christen his new temporary home.
Little did I know how addicted I’d become, or just how unforgettable my time with Camden would be.
After all, I knew we had an expiration date.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
Releasing May 31, 2020, British Banger is a Cocky Hero Club book, written in the world of Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. British Banger features Camden Reid, brother of Calliope from British Bedmate.

He looks like he belongs on stage, stripping out of his firefighter uniform, not running into a burning building to save me. But thank God he did.
When the smoke clears and my eyes focus on my savior, one look at his gorgeous face and tattoo-covered muscles, I know he’ll be too much for me to handle. It’s a good thing I never have to see him again, right?
Except, losing my home in a fire means finding somewhere new to live, and guess who just happens to be my new roommate? Hayden Flynn. The filthy-talking firefighter who’s been front and center of all of my dreams lately.
