Book Review: ‘Sexy Motherpucker’ by Lili Valente

Synopsis:

When the family dog trots in with my diaphragm in its mouth—in front of my date, his parents, and his adorable little girl—you would think I’d hit rock bottom.

WRONG.

Let’s back this up a sec…

Brendan Daniels is the sexiest man alive. The captain of the Badger’s NHL team is also clever, kind, funny, and was my good friend…until we cruised out of the friend zone one weekend with a red-hot fling. Come Monday morning, I wanted to keep riding the Big O train to happy town, but Brendan wanted someone who was “stepmom” material.

A.K.A, not me, apparently.

The problem? I’m crazy in love with him and his daughter. So when he asks me to be his pretend girlfriend for a long weekend with his former in-laws, I say yes. We’re still friends, after all, and friends don’t let friends fake it alone.

***

Laura Collins is the last woman I should be thinking about taking in the back seat of my car, in the woods behind my in-laws’ house, or in a hotel room where we’re sharing one very small, very squeaky bed.

I need a steady, stable influence for my daughter, not a fling with this too wild, too young, too impulsive red head. So what if she’s beautiful and intense and passionate and has the biggest heart I’ve ever known?

I don’t want to fall in love. I really don’t. The whole “pretend girlfriend” thing was supposed to solve my problems, buy me a little more time.

But when it comes to Laura?

Hell, maybe I’m just not cut out for faking it.

 

Review:

Goes down as another off my 2017 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A book that takes place in the winter. Laura and Brendan sure find some fun ways to warm up after having some fun in the snowy landscape.

So after reading Hot as Puck I had a very good idea of who seemed to cause Laura’s heartbreak and it was none other than Brendan. A summer weekend of passion that could have turned into something a hell of a lot more. Love how it starts with Laura burning all her underwear. Goodbye bra you served me well! Seems this would be the moment pain in her PR butt Brendan would appear. He seems to have caught her at a bad time but after hearing some home truths on how she thinks he feels for her. Hate being top of the list as he always finds ways to be as unhelpful as possible with PR stuff. He decides to show a bit of solidarity with burning something of his too. Burning underwear aside they are both on a beach at sunset and he sure knows how to comfort her quickly, giving her plenty of time to back away if she wanted to. Seems they needed a push to get there but once they do its like they just click. It’s been hard for him being a single dad after losing his wife three years before and it turns out that Laura is the first person he’s been with since. Once isn’t quite enough though and soon you can feel it turning into something more the longer they spend together. Which is why it comes as a shock for Laura when – after she puts her heart out there – he knocks her back saying it would be too complicated with him being a single dad, as Chloe needs to come first.

So its back to being friends/work colleagues but you can still see the strain after months apart and now it looks like Brendan is about to test that friendship to the limits. Seems his ex-in-laws think he should have moved on so Chloe would have a female influence, knowing their daughter would have wanted him to be happy and not be alone. With his hectic career they might get the idea to have Chloe stay with them so she is in a more stable environment. (Side note: loved the ex-in-laws, they were a hoot). So his idea is simple, he needs to turn up for Thanksgiving with a girlfriend in toe. He just needs to convince Laura to be that girlfriend. He knows he messed up on something great and for stupid reasons it seems but he is willing to correct it. Laura is wary to help as she’s not sure how much her heart can take but it doesn’t take long before she agrees anyway. Pretending to be the girlfriend of the guy you completely fell for can’t be too hard can it? Well kissing seems to be a way to relax but lines might start to blur between fake and reality. Both might want the reality but they have a few crossed wires to sort out. Good job nosey siblings are always there to help.

That dog sure knows how to create an embarrassing situation for Laura. OMG I was dying when she got on the floor. That’s a sure way to confirm a relationship – you will have to read it to see what I mean. Its not long before the fake reality becomes the real thing and once it does its like they have four months to catch up on. Seriously this guy is packing some heat and stamina. Who could resist? But his head seems to be running away from him and get well ahead of Laura’s. You can totally see why she would react the way she did. Two people so suited for each other but they have to remember there is a third in the mix.

Chloe was a cutie and I loved her text chats with Laura. Loved all the text archive chats really as it gave a different feel to certain parts. Love how the epilogue of this one links up with Libby’s. Those girls are going to have a surprise for each other the next morning. Also nicely linking in Brendan’s feisty sister Diana with the next hockey hunk who will grace our lives. These boys sure know how to heat up the ice. Another great read but I’d expect nothing less.

I was drugged.

Now, I’ve woken up in a dark, luscious room.

A deviant playground.

I’m not alone.

The person that was drugged and taken with me is here, too.

My confidant.

Someone that I had come to see as a brother.

My best friend.

Suddenly, there’s a voice coming through the speakers, telling us we’ve both been chosen to die.

The only way out? Do everything we’re told to do.

This person wants to watch us. They want to be entertained. As she says, “I want to see you come.”

It’s simple: either we f*ck, or die.

Excerpt

 

Sweat beads at my brow as the breath whooshes out of me.  I’m bent over, arms dangling down. Beneath me, the most delicious, hardest length I’ve ever felt presses into my mound. I want to rock against it.

I can’t move.

He won’t let me.

He keeps me like this, draped over his lap, immobile.

The sound of a strike reverberates throughout the room, but silence remains. No noise. It isn’t allowed.

Moisture drips from my every pore, and yet, I’m focused on this one drop as it gathers at the center of my forehead. Becomes bigger.

Everything’s out of control.

Crazed.

Hyper-awareness consumes my every breath.

I count to ten and it falls to the ground.

A small splat no one will ever hear. And yet, I do. The sound as it hits the floor causes my breathing to stutter and skin to prickle with goose bumps.

“The last ten, love,” Noah whispers, his hand massaging the heated flesh beneath his fingertips. It hurts, but the pain is replaced by a yearning so strong that I whimper in his lap.

Like a bitch in heat I arch and ask for more.

His touch.

His desire.

To make this burning within my veins stop.

With one hand he gathers the hair at my nape and forces my head back. A harsh tug—I’m in his control—forces my eyes to his. Hooded dark blue eyes look at me with concern, but behind their depths I see another emotion burning.

Lust.

His want mirrors my own. This perversion is awakening something darker from within. It grows—chokes us, because behind it all we were meant to end up like this. My body at his hands. In his control.

Those hungry eyes look at me. Silent communication. Are you okay?

I blink back a please and the asshole smirks. Aware of what I need even as my mind fights the sins I have laid bare to his eyes.

My release is so close. A fresh round of arousal drips from my core and onto his boxers.

I’m positioned over his lap, ass up, and the very tip of his cock is against my hip. He’s hard. Jerks against me when I gyrate against his length.

“Please,” I beg aloud this time and his hold on my hair tightens. The hand kneading my ass cheek spreads me open to look at my depravity. At what his own hands have caused.

That thong, that minuscule piece of fabric, can’t hide what this game is doing to me. The evidence, slick and inviting, is on his lap.

I shift against his cock and he hisses. “Be still!”

A crackle follows his command and we both shiver. Each time it appears, things change, become more.

Dangerous.

Frantic.

Wicked.

“Very good my pets, but the audience wants more. Lose the panties, but without her standing up. Be creative, and there will be a reward.”

I exhale shakily. “Do it.”

“Are you sure?” As the word leave his lips, those same fingers that a minute ago exposed me to his eyes, now hold my panties in his grip. He doesn’t wait for a reply.  A tug follows his question, the sound of fabric stretching meets my ears, and I nod.

Another pull and I feel every welt that forms on my skin from the rough treatment. The sole sounds in the room are his harsh breathing and mine. Loud exertion, but at the same time desperate for more.

What else could I say? No. Please don’t?

It would’ve been a bullshit lie and we both know it. The voice commands and we follow. It asks and we accept our fate.

There’s a sick part of me that relishes in this madness. Craves him. My Noah.

We have been dealt our cards; there is no escape. We must accept our fate.

Either we fuck each other, or we die.

Book Review: ‘Penalty’ by Jacob Chance

Title: Penalty

Published: 10th May 2017

Publisher: Brothers Chance Publishing

Author: Jacob Chance

Synopsis:

He’s the bad boy quarterback of Boston University’s football team. As the son of a former NFL player, he’s showered with attention and praise twenty-four-seven. One flash of his smile and all the girls fall at his feet – or should I say to their knees?

And then there’s me.

Brady Lincoln is the last person I want attention from. He’s the kind of guy my father warned me about. His play on the field is legendary and his play with the ladies, even more so. I’ve managed to stay off his radar until recently.

What happens when the cocky quarterback breaks all the rules to win my heart?

 

Review:

Brady is your classic sexy brooding star quarterback who loves women and who women love. He is very hot and heavy with them – not that they complain in the slightest – and is used to getting them with merely a wink and a smile. He’s used to being a player so what happens when things get turned on their head and he meets someone who turns into something more. Once he meets Harlow it’s not long before he is doing the chasing and once he catches her he has no intention of letting her go. I love that his friend Zeke called it at the beginning by saying he’s going to love it when a girl comes along and knocks him on his arse. Well put my friend, you knew how things would go.

While at a party with her friend Raine Harlow quite literally bumps into the one guy who makes her heart race with just a look – Brady. And from the look he is giving her from that moment on she has to restrain herself from just falling into bed with him or to her knees. Something you know he had every intention of happening after being with her for just a few moments. She doesn’t want to be just another one-night stand though. He’s the type of guy her father warned her about so she knows she has to leave. She may pretend she doesn’t know him to begin with – something our bigheaded sportsman can’t seem to get his head around – but that’s more to do with self-preservation with having a very hot guy flirting with her, shocking her to no end. She can’t believe he would really be interested in her but she’s about to find out he is very persistent. She has caught his eye and is on his mind pretty much from then on. Seems he thinks she is playing hard to get but once he starts chasing her he realises he doesn’t want to lose her. He has every intention on keeping her and for more than one night. She might have created her own assumptions about him from his passed antics but he is all about getting her to see the real him. They seem to balance each other out, opposites attract and all that. Sizzling chemistry from the get go that gets hotter the longer they are together. Seems resisting temptations makes it that much sweeter when you finally get what or rather who you have been craving.

Thought their friends were fun when they where around. Found Cameron to be a massive asshole, he deserves what he gets. Have to say I had a feeling that Brady’s choice at the beginning would come back to bite him in the arse in the end. Cindy, Harlow’s stepmother, is just the bitch from hell. Her confession at the end left you wondering WTF, so I think here could have been developed a bit further but glad how it all worked out. Good read though so you should definitely check out what else the author has done.

4 out of 5 stars
