book blurb

The NHL’s biggest bad boy is about to fall for the virgin next door…I am the world’s biggest dating failure. We’re talking my last date went home with our waitress kind of failure.But I have an ace in the back pocket of my mom jeans—my sexy-as-sin best friend, NHL superstar forward, Justin Cruise.

Justin owes me favors dating back to seventh grade, long before he became a hotshot with a world famous…stick. So in return for my undying platonic loyalty, all I want is an easy-peasy crash course on how to be a sex goddess.

How hard can it be?

***

I have never been so hard in my life.

The things I want to do to my sweet, kindergarten-teaching, mitten-crocheting best friend Libby Collins are ten different kinds of wrong. Maybe twenty.

But I’m a firm believer in teaching by example, and by the end of our first lesson, we’ve graduated to a hands on approach to her sexual education: my hands all over her, her hands all over me, and her hot mouth melting beneath mine as I prove to her there isn’t a damned thing wrong with the way she kisses.

Give me a month, and I’ll transform Libby from wall flower to wall banger, and ensure she’s confident enough to seduce any guy she wants.

Problem is… the only guy I want her seducing is me. 

Hot as Puck is a sexy, flirty, friends-to-lovers Standalone romantic comedy from USA Today Bestseller Lili Valente.

5++ STARS

Well the queen of sexy romantic comedies has totally outdone herself once again.  Often times as I read one of Lili Valente’s novels I think to myself “she won’t be able to top it,” and then she gives us Hot As Puck which left me completely overwhelmed and full of contentment.  In Ms. Valente’s usual style, has delivered a fun and entertaining story which is brimming with laugh out loud moments and replete with steamy, hot and sexy romance as well.

Justin and Libby have been best friends for years sharing a platonic connection through family and, well, crocheting.  But when Libby decides she is tired of her failed attempts at dating, she knows that Justin is her answer, determined that he is the only one who can help her transform from a sweet kindergarten teacher to a sexual goddess.  Although hesitant to cross that line with Libby, Justin reluctantly consents to be her teacher, both agreeing they will not let it affect their best friend status.  But as the lesson begins it sets both of their libidos aflame and they suddenly realize that their bond extends far beyond mere friendship.  But both Justin and Libby are afraid to tell the other how deeply and quickly their emotions are growing for fear of hurting the relationship they already share, especially if Libby’s sister ever finds out what they’ve been up to.  Will Justin and Libby be able to find the courage to share their true feelings for each other before it’s too late?

Well I fell hard and fast for Libby and Justin.  Their bantering through texting as well as their face to face interactions made me giggle.  Even now as I’m writing this review I have a smile on my face as I think back on their story.  Not to mention the oh-so-hot and sweltering escapades they share together on the couch, in the bedroom and pretty much everywhere else.  Their connection to one another goes so much farther than friendship, and it was so much fun reading this book and watching them both discover how deep their bond truly goes.  I’m hoping we get a chance to revisit Justin and Libby with future stories as the support characters were just as fun to spend time with.  Lili Valente has definitely scored many, many goals with Hot As Puck and has certainly earned a solid five stars, though honestly it deserves many more.
