The Pilot & the Puck-Up by Pippa Grant
He’s the biggest, baddest, most spider-fearing motherpucker on the ice…
When you’re named after the king of the gods, the world expects certain things of you.
Tough? Damn right.
Smart? Don’t let the hockey uniform fool you.
Large and in charge? Honey, I’m the biggest, baddest, mother pucking-est machine to ever own the ice. I shoot. I score. In and out of the rink. I don’t come early, but I come often, if you know what I mean. And I always leave the ladies wanting more.
Until that chick last night.
I’m no one-thrust wonder, and you’re damn right I’m going to prove to her I can do better. But every time I think I’m finally on my way back into her pants, she one-ups and out-balls me.
I should cut my losses, lick my wounds, and walk away.
But Zeus Berger doesn’t walk away from anything.
Especially when she's the only woman in the world who might be able to handle me.
I’m relatively new to Pippa Grant but a friend recommended her to me and I’m so glad she did. I am loving the whole Copper Valley Thrusters Hockey, Firedball Baseball, Bro Code, Happy Cat family. These people are seriously odd and funny as hell.
Holding the top place in my all time favorites from her books are the Berger siblings and their significant others. This book gives us a little bit of all of them but concentrates on Zeus the elder of the Brute and Force twins. Six foot nine inches of solid man who has a wicked sense of humor and serious fear of spiders. He has two scenes in this book that will make you laugh even if you try not to. His lost bet at the beginning and his unexpected encounter with a spider later. I dare you not to laugh. Seriously.
Joey was a complete surprise. Unfortunately, I read the books out of order, so I only got snippets of Joey from other couple’s books and honestly, those small glimpses do not paint the picture of all that is Joey. Joey is epic. She’s incredibly intelligent and overly protective of her little sister. But she comes across as kind of bitchy until you get to know her. Once you get to know her, you’ll just want more books with her in them. And she is a perfect match for Zues. She’s the only one who could even hope to match his cockiness and come out on top.
You need to read these books. They’re well written, will keep you laughing from beginning to end and even though they’re funny, they’re not fluff. I can’t wait for her next book and she’s going on my one-click watch list. I don’t even need a blurb.
