Publisher's Summary

A quiet giant, an egotistical goaltender, and a cocky defenseman are about to meet their matches in this box set of hot, hilarious hockey goodness.

Beauty and the Beefcake is a vegan-friendly standalone romantic comedy featuring a hockey player whose vocabulary is the only thing smaller than a hockey puck, a book smart but aimless ventriloquist with too many voices in her head, a dilapidated old house that may or may not be haunted, and no cheating or cliffhangers.

Charming as Puck is a romping fun romance between a hockey player and his sister's best friend, complete with farm animals, epic birthday presents, and Berger Twin sightings. This romantic comedy stands alone with no cheating or cliffhangers and ends with a pucking awesome happily ever after.

I Pucking Love You is a hilariously wrong romantic comedy about the world’s worst matchmaker, a hockey player with a problem he doesn’t want to talk about, and an awkward date-of-convenience that everyone would prefer to forget. It comes complete with a cat working his way through his nine lives, all the sexy times, fish and chips, and a swoony happily-ever-after.

Over 30 hours of laughs and swoons

This boxset is packed full of funny. First we have Aries and Felicity and all of the hilarious puppets. They are great together. Then we have Nick and Cami and we have pranks and a calf. This was too funny and Cami is perfect for Nick. Last but certainly not least is Tyler and Muffy and I think this was my favorite. Muffy deserved to find her happily ever after with Tyler. All three books are fantastic and packed full of funny moments as well as serious underline issues to work through and lots of heat.

The multi narrators were all great. They were paired up perfectly for the characters and I enjoyed listening to all of them. This is a great set and I highly recommend it.

Freaking fantastic

The Beauty and the Beefcake.

I want to start with 2 things 1. I can completely understand the hesitant in wanting to read this book (at least I did) i was worried after catching a sneak peak of Felicity in RoyallyPucked. Then 2. I read a few reviews from people who said they skipped over a few chapters.
I want to say that that was so wrong on their parts. I cannot even begin to tell you as the reader/listener would be missing out by doing that. This book was a trigger for me. Not in a bad way so to speak. But in a way I could relate to both Ares and Felicity. Wanting to fit in and not knowing how, or giving up on what people think of you. There were  a lot of  times I had teared up for Ares and for Felicity. Probably more so for Ares. It was in similar yet different ways the way I also teared up for Zeus.
This story was great! Pippa delivers her whitty and spunkiness. It was probably my new favorite book. It took me by surprise in the beat way ever!!
Wen Ross is a new to me and he was awesome!!!  He was perfect for Ares! He gained a new fan.
Virgina was hilarious!!! And wonderful as always!!!

Charming as Puck

Okay, this story was sweet as all get up!! I love it when Friends turn to lovers. It's the sweets kind. This story also affected me in the feels! Misfits are my favorite types of people! I feel a theme happening in this series. Lol. Nick and Kami are adorable together.  This is gonna be more of a short and sweet story but this story is definitely worth a listen or 7.
Jason Clarke no need to say more. He is awesome with his deep voice. Savannah Peachwood was PERFECT for Kami!! Both the Narrators brought these characters to life.

I Pucking Love You

Oh my god!! This story was everything!! I didn't want to stop listening. I loved and I mean loved easy transition into his feelings with Muffy and how to him Muffy is absolutely perfect! Which is exactly how every relationship should be.  The best well one of the best parts is Tyler's family I die! They are hilarious!
Aiden Snow and Emma Wilder are awesome Narrators! They were a perfect match up for these characters!!

This box set has been well worth the credit! This series has been awesome in reminding everyone that Misfits have feelings and it does not take a lot to simply be kind!
Well done Pippa. I am a fan for life!!

Excellent Compliation!

This second boxed set in The Copper Valley Thrusters Series includes the books 3-5: Beauty and the Beefcake, Charming as Puck, and I Pucking Love You. Each story is funny, sweet, and heartwarming. Some scenes are hilarious! The narrators did a fantastic job with the narration. I liked the characters, and the humor in this series. The cast of supporting characters is impressive, and they have an important part in the series. I enjoyed it. If you like Sports Romance, and Romantic Comedy, this series is definitely for you.

Ridiculous, cringe worthy

The first 2 books were agonizing and resulted in skipping huge sections. Book 3 was at best tolerable. Soooooo sad I used a point for this set. The whole thing was just stupid….

felicity story almost killed the whole book

I have listened to the first box set and was very impressed so when I noticed there was a second box set I didn't hesitate. Within the first 20 minutes the first book felicity's story made me almost stopped and ask for a refund. instead of that I just fast forward through several chapters until I reach the end. and the last two books Why is the Buck's I were looking forward to

Enjoyed

I listened to the individual stories when they were released. In the last few days I re-listened to this incredible collection. Charming as Puck is one of my all time top favorites. There is just something special about the way Pippa Grant creates a story. They come alive from the first page until the end. Al of the narrators are incredibly talented also. They bring a special something to the story.

4.5 Hilarious & Heartfelt Stars!

~ Beauty and the Beefcake (The Copper Valley Thrusters #3)
This forbidden romance was so sweet, hilarious, and steamy! Felicity is living in her late grandmother's house when her brother shows up and asks if his teammate Ares, and his service monkey, can stay there while Ares recuperates his injured ankle. Felicity is directionless, being extremely intelligent, having 4 college degrees, but doesn't have a clue about life or her purpose. She expresses her thoughts and frustrations through her ventriloquism and her multiple hilarious characters, especially at the most awkward situations. Ares was born to play hockey. He loves it and is lost when he can't be out on the ice. He doesn't need to talk because he shows what he is thinking with his expressions and through his actions. They are total opposites in so many ways, but they have an instant connection, understand each other intrinsically, and their fiery attraction is palpable. Their love story is sweet, heartfelt and sizzling! I loved the way Felicity understood Ares' everylook and action, not needing more than his hilarious grunts. She faught for him when others overlooked his intelligence, and he protected her and helped her understand her worth.
Wen Ross, and Virginia Rose did a great job narrating this delightful romcom and bringing it to life. I love both their voices, along with their flawless comedic timing and dynamic voice changes. Ross was so perfect as the gentle giant with the deep grunts and Rose was amazing as she performed all the different ventriloquist character voices. They really put themselves out there, being just as outrageous in their deliveries making this fast paced, hilarious, heartfelt, and sweet & steamy romance so much fun!

~ Charming as Puck (The Copper Valley Thrusters #4)
4.5 Hilarious & Heartfelt Stars!
I loved Nick and Kami's second chance romance! They were friends with benefits for awhile until Nick unwittingly hurt Kami one too many times. Now he is lost without her and he is determined to prove that he is more than a self-centered playboy. Kami has loved Nick for awhile and was happy. But now she doesn't want to be kept a secret anymore. She wants a home, a family, and a man who puts her first. Nick is more thoughtful than people give him credit for, and Kami falls harder for him as he makes up for lost time. Nick is so swoony as he shows his love of his cow/dog, the hilarious pranks he plans, and the thoughtful/romantic ways he shows he really cares, Kami never stood a chance. I loved Nick and Kami together. They were both sweet, caring, and funny, and their chemistry is off the charts, even with all the awkward interruptions!
Jason Clarke and Savannah Peachwood were brilliant as Nick and Kami, delivering a performance that was completely addictive. Their incredible chemistry, comedic timing, and easy delivery had me totally lost in the their storytelling. This was such a fun listen as I laughed out loud, more than once, at their hilarious banter and awkward situations. I loved both their deliveries as they brought this hilarious, heartwarming, sweet and steamy story to life!

~ I Pucking Love You (The Copper Valley Thrusters #5)
4.5 Hilarious & Heartfelt Stars!
I absolutely loved this hilarious, heartfelt fake date romance! This slow burn, rom-com is filled with witty banter, awkward and hilarious situations, and a sweet and sexy storyline with lots of heart. Tyler and Muffy are complete opposites but are so cute and perfect together. Muffy is a matchmaker and cares deeply for her clients. She finds the perfect matches in an unorthodox way, just like every other unconventional decision in her life. Tyler is a sexy professional hockey player with a heart of gold. He loved helping Muffy in a time of need, and has been attracted to her for along time. Muffy doesn't think she is worthy of him and afraid he will tire of all the chaos in her life, just like many other people she should have been able to trust. Tyler feels a protectiveness he never had before and is determined to make her see how wonderful she is and that they are meant to be together. I love Tyler and Muffy, all their little quirks, their fun banter, and their chemistry was off the charts!
Emma Wilder and Aiden Snow did a great job narrating this delightful romcom and bringing it to life. I love their humor, and their easy ability to make this awkward and emotional story feel real and authentic. They helped make this hilarious, heartfelt, and sweet & steamy romance even more entertaining!

I love Pippa Grant

Aries & Felicity
What’s better than a man that doesn’t talk getting together with a ventriloquist? You will love this book!
Nick & Camie
Nick needs her to help with his game. She wants to be more than a helper. I smiled through this entire book. I think every book gets better and better.
Muffy & Tyler
Muffy is a matchmaker Tyler is a Hockey player. She can’t seem to get things right but I love how he stands up for her.
All three books are hilariously entertaining. If you want to laugh and fall in love with great Characters Pippa Grant knows how to create just that. All of these books have hockey players in them, however she doesn’t get into the hockey aspect too much. Pippa’s books are pretty low angst with just enough heat to make them great. In my opinion, Pippa writes the best rom-coms. She also picks the best narrators. All of these are perfectly narrated with the best personalities.

Hysterical and romantic!

Grab this boxset now! If you love romance and laugh out loud funny books, grab this second part of the Copper Valley Thrusters series! We start with Beauty and the Beefcake. This one is especially fun, as it has a variety of personalities in our heroine, Felicity. She is an amazing ventriloquist, who has been trying to find herself. Now with a crazy ex stalking her, she needs some protection. Ares is an injured hockey player, a man of few words, who needs to rest and heal. Who better to be put together? This set up is so good, with the talkative Felicity, misunderstood, and underappreciated she is a woman we can all find something in common with. Ares, with his one word grunts, his persistence to be on the ice, and just his feeling of the underdog makes it impossible not to love him.

Next up, the goal scoring book of Charming as Puck! Nick is the goalie for the Thrusters, and he forgets his best friend with benefits and veterinarian, Kami's birthday. Kami wants more from Nick, but clearly, if he can't even remember her birthday, he has no interest in anything more. No longer happy with the situation, she distances herself from him. Will he realize his true feelings for Kami now? This story is heart warming and full of hysterically funny moments. The team is around with a few animal pranks, family with sage advice and a cow named Sugarbear that stole my heart.

Last up is I Pucking Love You! First, I have to say I love quirky, and you can't get much more quirky than Muffy. She owns a matchmaker company and her unorthodox way of finding a match is finally starting to work. But success still is a ways a way, and leaving her college education for this may be questionable. When she has to go back to her college town for a funeral, she isn't going to go alone. She needs a date. Tyler is a cranky hockey player, mainly because ever since his one night stand with Muffy, things have not been the same. Now is the chance to find out if she is the missing ingredient. A date with her should do it. But what happens next is nothing short of magic...and tragedy....and hysterical laughter.

Once again, Pippa Grant chooses her narrators perfectly. Each book is perfectly cast and will have you drawn in, laughing and loving each character. This is a series you do not want to miss!
