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.
Libby is a kindergarten teacher who thinks she is in love/lust with the Deputy Head Roger. Which would be a good thing if she had any idea how she was going to broach the subject of dating with him. She thinks he is who she wants with how she feels but that’s before Justin shows her the true meaning of passion with a few interesting lessons. Seems Liddy wants a little help in the dating department (well she wants to be a sex goddess but baby steps first) as she feels somewhat lacking so she hopes she can make her friend Justin an offer he can’t refuse.
Well at first he does because he can’t really get his head around what she’s asking but the more he looks at her in a new light – tight revealing tops will do that – the more he is tempted. His approach to helping her though is not all notebooks and tests like she thought. He is very much a hands on teacher and I think he wants to give her an A after one class. Seems they only needed a bit of passion to ignite their friendship into something a lot hotter. Seriously girl why did you think Roger was the man for you. There is a very good reason you are so comfortable and sure of yourself with Justin, you are just going to wish you saw it sooner! Ok breathe. Him too as after one taste – and after finding out her little secret – he is more than ready to be the one and only from then on. Until they admit their feelings though through fear of getting rejected they are in a bit of a stale mate. Well if they thought that was their only problem then they should have thought again as Libby’s sister Laura might just have a few things to say about what is going on.
Funny how what Justin jokes about at the beginning has a sneaky way of coming true and how everything just falls into place. Funny, quirky characters that have a lot of chemistry right from the start with their easygoing friendship and then hotter than hell passion. Love that he had a bit of a geeky quirky side. I mean she’s the one who got him interested in crouching. Some of the things he creates and then showcases on his Instagram account you are just dying to see. Thought Laura was a right laugh. I had a feeling that it was Brendan she was talking about when mentioning a guy she liked. Can’t wait for their book. These ice hockey players are so hot I’m surprised they don’t melt the ice. Loved it from the start and have to say that if you want a funny hot romance to read then you should definitely check out Lili’s books.
