Publisher's Summary

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 10 different kinds of wrong. Maybe 20.

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 Best-seller Lili Valente.

Barley started

Reviews said it would be comical and an easy listen. It has been in my wish list. I stated it and the male narrator himself didn't seem to care, and neither did I. For a easy going, fill in book between great series I'd expect more considering the rave reviews. Returned asap.

Lots of fun

Considering the title I wasn't expecting much. But it had a nice story and some hilarious dialogue. Definitely worth a listen :)

A Must Buy

Would you consider the audio edition of Hot as Puck to be better than the print version?

Not necessarily, I love both. But there's something really special about the way the narrators bring the characters to life.

What other book might you compare Hot as Puck to and why?

Magnificent Bastard and Spectacular Rascal have the same type of humor and romance.

What about Tyler Donne and Summer Roberts ’s performance did you like?

The narrators add so much humor and emotion to the characters, its a real pleasure to listen to them.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh yes! I wish I had the time to do that.

The Bad Motherpuckers Are Here!

Hot hockey players, you say? Yes, please, and thank you, Lili Valente, for this awesome new series about the Portland Badgers and the women that they love.

Justin Cruise, star forward for the Badgers, is more than just a pro on the ice. Sexy as all get-out, he's also literally the boy next door. So when Libby Collins finds herself in need of someone to teach her the finer arts of seduction, she can think of no one that she'd rather learn from than Justin.

Justin has always seen Libby as sort of a little sister, but she's blossomed into much more than that over the years. What starts out as a friend helping a friend is soon blazing hotter than either one expected, and neither Justin nor Libby are looking at each other the same way.

I love absolutely everything that Lili writes, so it comes as no surprise that this first book in the new series owned my heart I adore the relationship between Libby and Justin, and was rooting for this pairing from the very start. It is, by turn, sweet, sexy, and pretty danged scorching, and just what I've come to expect and love from Lili.

Tyler Donne and Summer Roberts do an excellent job of capturing the personalities of these characters, and made listening to HOT AS PUCK truly enjoyable. It's no surprise that this story is 5 stars all around, and that I can't wait to pop in my earbuds for the next installment.

This is a sweet, enjoyable romance. It had me laughing out so loud I was getting stares from people ,as I listened with my headphones. I can't wait to read/listen to more of Lili's work.

Funny and sexy!

I really enjoyed this audiobook very much! There was a lot of humor and sweet sexy scenes in this story of a hockey player who falls in love with a kindergarten teacher while trying to help her feel less socially awkward. This is a perfect friends to lovers romance. The narration was quite well done and Tyler Donne's sardonic delivery style makes the book even better. It's only a sports romance on the periphery, just saying. Good listening for a Saturday!

Listened to Stories like this, but still liked it

This story line has been done before with the same results. However, it was entertaining. The childhood friendship between Justin and Libby is pretty typical. I am not saying I didn't enjoy this story, it was very good. It was a pleasure to listen to. The two narrators did a great job with the characters.

Great light easy listen

This was a great listen I loved the characters and their respectful interactions with each other. The sex was great and enhanced rather than dominated the story - it was especially good because there was real chemistry built between the hero and heroine.
Even though the story was predictable it was so well written it kept me wanting to know what came next (even though I already sort of new)

PUCKING Amazing!!

What made the experience of listening to Hot as Puck the most enjoyable?

I've read the physical book before, but the audio was absolutely amazing. Listening to the narrators bring this story to life made it enjoyable and realistic.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hot as Puck?

This entire book is memorable for me, but I loved when Justin wrote Libby the second poem telling her he loves her. Justin's poems were hilarious but so him.

Which character – as performed by Tyler Donne and Summer Roberts – was your favorite?

I loved them both equally.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not a particular moment, but the friendship between Justin and Libby moved me in itself. The fact that they will do anything for one another was proof enough that they've been in love for a lot longer than they realized.

Any additional comments?

This is my favorite Sports Romance series.

Very cute- a breezy sweet romance

Looking forward to more in this series. This is not a deep serious book. It is slightly dirty and fun but with only a little angst. Just a very pleasant feel good story.

Friends into lovers

If you like a story of friends turning into lovers, you’ll probably enjoy this one. Not very much about hockey or it’s foul-mouthed, bad-assed players. Justin likes to crochet. I was ok with this as I like quirky characters. The author lost me finally when she completely and unequivocally dissed phil collins. Sorry, leap too far.
I like dual male/female narrators. Donne has a good voice, but will be much better when he has more experience with using it to express emotions.
