➦This is another spin off of Magnificent Bastard The heroine of this book is a mutual friend of those two guys running Magnificent Bastard Consulting, a very helpful establishment specializing in making life of the ladies easier. Just pay them, they’ll make anyone you want jealous or intimidate your annoying ex. Well, you remember them.
➦But what about helping that other, you know, male part of the population? Surely there must be money in that! Yes, indeed! So, when a celebrity hockey player needs help getting rid of his coo-coo ex-girlfriend, the Magnificent bastard duo calls their friend Shane to help.➦Shane doesn’t need money, she’s a vet and she’s super nice. So she’ll help out. Once, of course, she sees the sex-on-a-stick hockey player, she is immediately infatuated with him. Listen, she’s only human. If he walks around bare-chested and with a hockey stick like on the cover of this book… which he doesn’t, by the way. But you get the point.
➦So we have a case of insta-lust from both but they try very hard to remain in a pretend relationship. Jake’s ex needs to see them happily together so she can finally bugger off. So how long will they be able to pretend it’s a fake relationship?
➦Unlike Magnificent Bastard and Spectacular Rascal this book is dual POV. It contains same over the top humor and has enough action in the steam department. The epilogue is written from the dog’s POV and is seriously ott but hilarious. Well, you get it. 🙂
➦Recommended to those who like romcoms & fake relationship tropes. Now, even though the hero is a hockey player I wouldn’t go as far as saying that this book can be considered a sports romance. I didn’t find enough hockey in it to put it into a sports category on my blog. So if you’re not a fan of sports romances there’s no need to stay away from this one!
