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.

Maria’s Review

➦This is a second time this month that I’m this giddy over a book. And I swear it’s not even that time of month. But it’s not like that time of month would ever influence my rating.

➦But all jokes aside, I’m trying to be a professional blogger here.

➦I’ve been a fan of Lili Valente’s romcoms for a while now and I was expecting this hockey sports romance to be of the same funny variety. But it is totally different from what I’ve been anticipating! Not to say that it doesn’t contain fun banter, because it does. The sports aspect is present but not very prominent. And it is totally swoony and HOT. God, is it hot.

➦That’s right. You guessed it. My pants were on fire. You’re thinking “God, Maria, you have no shame!”

➦And you’re correct again. #noshame This is definitely not your straight up erotica. It’s just that this particular trope seems to be floating my boat, if you know what I mean. A hot pro hockey player falls for a kindergarten teacher. Like, why would HE ever hook up with her? But he did so

➦But it’s not only the unlikely couple that I loved, it was also the “sex ed” element that got me all happy. Because, when you’re a bit awkward and you need pointers on how to date, why not take advantage of your hot guy friend’s knowledge? Just make sure, you know, not to fall in love with him.

➦So, I know I shouldn’t probably mention other authors on this review, but what the hell, I think Lili Valente and Lauren Blakely are buds. This book sort of kind of reminded me of Mister O, which I loved. It was a similar kind of trope but certainly didn’t lack originality when it came to characters. So if you enjoyed Mister O you will probably love this book too.
