Title: Sizzling Chauffeur
A Cocky Hero Club Novel
Author: Elouise East
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 17, 2021
Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward are excited to bring you the Cocky Hero Club: original works from various authors inspired by Keeland and Ward's New York Times bestselling Cocky Bastard series.
Coincidence or fate? Either way, there will be no second guesses...
Louis wants what his parents had: all encompassing love. He never believed he’d find it until a chance meeting with a man in his childhood vacation spot. Unfortunately, a brief encounter is all they have before Mal disappears. When Louis unexpectedly meets up with him again, he refuses to let go, not willing to trust that fate would allow them to meet a third time.
Mal doesn’t begrudge becoming guardian to his sister, but nothing will ever be the same. Especially when he meets the man of his dreams on vacation days before his life is turned upside down. Leaving Louis was the hardest thing he’d ever had to do, but he can’t allow someone to get too close and upset the precarious balance of his new responsibilities. However, Fate has other plans.
Does Louis have what it takes to change Mal’s mind?
Sizzling Chauffeur is an M/M contemporary romance inspired by Stuck-Up Suit.
The one thing I noticed off the bat is that despite being a part of the Cocky Heroes world, Louis really wasn't that cocky... persistent, engaged, interested, but he really was invested in making Mal comfortable instead of just assuming that he would be. Mal was sweet, overwhelmed and had a lot on his young plate... I love that he was strong enough and willing to do thing on his own, even if he didn't have to.
As with most books by Elouise East, I expect a well written story with excellent flow and strong characters and I wasn't disappointed.
Sizzling Chauffeur was a very sweet, charming read and I highly recommend it to anyone who has enjoyed the Cocky Hero world, and anyone who enjoys a good M/M romance with an age gap and some hurt/comfort moments, you'll love Sizzling Chauffeur.
I am Elouise East but feel free to call me Elli. I write sweet and steamy connections in gay romance. I also touch on taboo stories under the name Elouise R East.
Books that tell the stories where friendship and family are the focal point - be it blood family or chosen - is very important to me. That’s why I include a variety of personalities, talents, ages, situations and abilities as I believe a story needs, or a character needs. I want my characters to be real, to be relatable, to be free to have whatever views they tell me they have. And trust me, most of the time, I do not have any say in the matter!
My characters come to life on the page for me as well as my readers. Their stories unfold in front of me, and I have very little input into how they want to be shown. Just like real life, the lives of my characters change with every choice, every interaction and every conversation. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I write books that are emotionally realistic, even if liberties are taken with other aspects of my stories. I don’t know any other way to write. It comes from deep inside.
Who am I? A single parent to two children who make life worth living. An avid reader who still devours every book she can get her hands on. A student of learning about any subject that takes her fancy. An author of books she would read herself. And a romantic at heart who loves anything cheesy.
