"You're going to be a daddy."

Looking up into Alexi Petrov’s dark eyes as I break the news, I’m scared out of my mind. This man is the most terrifying defender in the NHL, and if it weren't for my sporty new baby bump, I probably wouldn't believe we hooked up that night. (Yes, I’ve sworn off margaritas for life.)

But the Alexi who goes to my doctor appointments, moves me into his guesthouse, and cooks so many gourmet meals I look like I'm carrying twins? He isn’t scary at all.

He’s sweet. And intense. And so sexy I want to smear him with honey and lick it off every inch of his powerful, protective, oh-so-swoony-worthy body.

But that’s not a part of our relationship anymore. We’re friends who intend to raise a child together. That’s all…

Right?

****

There’s no way I can be just friends with Amanda Esposito.

She’s everything I want in a woman—strong, sexy, compassionate, a little bit wild—with curves for miles and a smile she smiles just for me.

I don’t know if I’ve got what it takes to be that guy—the one with his heart on his sleeve—but for this woman, I’ll try.

Amanda and our baby are my future, my family, and I’m prepared to cross check anyone or anything that stands in my way. Even if that someone is the tough guy in the mirror...

Also in this series: Puck Aholic

Review

Puck Me Baby is book 4 in the Bad Motherpuckers series but it could be read as a standalone although I would suggest reading them all. This series has been fantastic and seems to get better with each book. I especially loved this one because of the secret baby aspect.

Lili Valente is the queen of romantic comedies mainly because she doesn’t just leave it at the comedy part. There are real issues that come up in these stories as well giving them a little angst. Puck Me Baby may just be my favorite but I tend to think that about all of her books so it’s really hard to decide. Although Alexi has a Russian accent so you know that does add bonus points! Throw in the fact that he went all in when he found out Mandy was pregnant with his baby and he is the best book boyfriend!

I can’t wait to see what Ms. Valente comes up with next!

I hate my new roommate.
And I want to do dirty, delicious things to her in that swing she installed that we both know has nothing to do with aerial yoga.
Neither of which is good, considering Diana Daniels is my NHL team captain’s little sister, and he will break my face if I’m not a perfect gentleman.
I try to be. Really, I do. But when Diana runs screaming down the hall wearing nothing but a damp washcloth, all my gentlemanly intentions go out the window. She’s got all sorts of Jedi mind tricks to make a man obsessed with getting her into bed, and I’m not gonna lie—I fall for every single one of them.
Especially the one where she warns me not to fall for her.
***
Everyone knows that banging your new roomie is a bad idea. And if it wasn’t for his sister’s stupid pet pig, Wanda, chasing me out of the bathroom mid-shower, Tanner Nowicki and I might still be able to pretend we hate each other.
But that pig totally has it out for me, and before I can warn Tanner that I don’t do relationships—or hockey players or my brother’s friends, for that matter—he’s doing me. Against the wall. And in his bed. And in my bed. And on a pinball machine where we get an all time high score.
And it’s so incredible that I start to forget that I’m the unluckiest woman alive when it comes to relationships. And pigs. And aerial yoga. And worst of all, love.
But hey, it’s not like I didn’t warn him…

Review
Puck Aholic is the third book in the Bad Motherpuckers series with each book reading as a standalone. The series is about a hockey team, meaning a lot of connections throughout the books (friends, family, etc.) This is Tanner (rookie) and Diana’s (Brendan’s sister/player) story.
Tanner has just finished up his rookie year and decides he needs to keep his focus by having zero summer flings. He’s not an one-night-stand kind of guy so he can totally do this. Then Diana comes strolling into the scene, saves his life on a beach and is his new roommate. As if that isn’t complicated enough, she happens to be his team captain’s sister! Complicated isn’t even the word for it now.
Diana has sworn off relationships since every one that she has been in has ended in disaster. She thinks it’s going to be easy but then her roommate ends up being the guy who pisses her off and turns her off at the same time. She thinks maybe they can have a hook-up and things will be okay until she discovers that he isn’t the friends-with-benefits type.
I think the funniest part of the book to me is the fact that Tanner has a pig and said pig doesn’t like Diana. I love that it was included in the story and it gave me plenty of giggles. This is a fantastic roommates to lover story that has a different feel to it with Tanner being a relationship guy and not a manwhore.
Lili Valente doesn’t disappoint! I honestly don’t think she could no matter how hard she tries. Puck Aholic is another must read!

Warning: This is one dark, dangerous, dirty-talking, adrenaline-fueled thrill ride. Are you ready?
I’ve got a big c*ck, a bigger bank account, and zero interest in Happily Ever After. I just want to feel alive, to look into a woman’s eyes and see something that’s going to keep my mind off all the shit I refuse to think about for an hour or two.
And then I meet her, a good girl with a body made for sin and ugly problems only a bad man can fix.
A bad man like me…
Gabe Alexander is the devil. Or an angel.
He’s a criminal hiding behind a millionaire dollar pedigree, but he also saved my life and my family. He’s the worst kind of bad news, but every time he touches me, and whispers filthy, beautiful things in my ear, all I want is more.
More of his kiss, his touch, and the dangerous, seductive things he makes me feel.
I don’t want to go bad, but the man makes it feel so damned good…
Warning Part the Second: A Love So Dangerous is the first in a three part series. It is a full-length novel that ends in a cliffhanger. It was formerly published as One Wild Night and This Wicked Rush by Jessie Evans.

Review
 Caitlyn is young and extremely stressed out. She dropped out of high school and is now raising her three younger brothers and 3-year-old niece since her mom and sister bailed and her dad is a drunk. She is about to lose it all too. On the night of her 20th birthday, she goes out dancing with her friend. She loses herself in the music and finds herself grinding on an old classmate, Gabe. Gabe comes from a very wealthy family and doesn’t really understand why Caitlyn “enables” her parents and sister. He decides that he wants to help her out and talks her into being Maid Marian to his Robin Hood. Things heat up between them fast but will it last?
I loved this book! I really feel for Caitlyn and how stressed out she is all the time. Raising 1 kid at the age of 20 is hard enough but 4 is tremendously difficult. When Gabe offers to help her out I wasn’t surprised at the form of the offer. He just had a bad boy vibe from the get go so his thievery fit. The reasons he was doing it was a little surprising though.
This book ends on a cliffhanger so I’m waiting in suspense for the next book. It’s been a while since I read a book with a cliffhanger that made me want to read the next book so I enjoyed that. I can’t wait to see what Lili Valente has in store for the characters next!
