Book Review: I Pucking Love You by Pippa Grant

I Pucking Love You by Pippa Grant
I Pucking Love You by Pippa Grant

Title: I Pucking Love You (Copper Valley Thrusters #5)
Author: Pippa Grant
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book had a terribly slow start, and so many times, I want to throw it down and quit. But I’m glad I didn’t because right around the time someone ahem passes out at the funeral, it all picks up.

Pippa Grant has a style that is simply all hers wonderful and blessed chaos. In typical Pippa fashion, her heroine, Muffy Periwinkle, is a hot mess. It’s not just that she is a med school drop-out or runs a flagging matchmaking business. You can’t point at her figure or her insecurities and say that those are what has her at wit’s end. It’s not that she has a death-seeking feline; it’s all of it together. She needs some tender loving care.

Tyler Jaeger to the rescue.

Title: Off Limits (Rixon High #1)
Author: L.A. Cotton
Genre: YA Sports Romance
My rating:
4 of 5 stars

*Big sigh*

There is so much here to unpack. L.A. Cotton has covered some important topics in this book.

Jason Ford’s nightmare has come true. Lewis Thatcher’s spawn has come to Rixon High, and he wants to be Jase’s next QB1. Can Coach Ford get his head straight to let Kaiden have a chance, or will bad blood spoil Kaiden’s only opportunity to get out of Rixon?

But the dynamic between Jason and Kaiden isn’t the only thing going on here. L.A. Cotton also introduces a complicated heroine in Lily Ford. A delicate and traumatized girl on the edge of womanhood or a nervous breakdown–whichever comes first. Lily has friends and family to support her, but she is wounded and healing but not thriving, and more importantly, not living until Kaiden Thatcher sets her aflame.

Summary:

Out on the ice, the season’s going great, but in the locker room the pranks are getting out of hand. It was time for me to remind everyone not to mess with me— so I came up with a prank the team, and my best friend, would never forget.

Title: Not My Match (The Game Changers #2)
Author: Ilsa Madden-Mills
Genre: Sports Romance
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, I’m such a big fan! IMM! Hearts and doodles. Who does Sports Romance Better?

And let me preface this with the disclaimer there are barely any sports in this–Not My Match is an Ode to Nerd-dom and Physics. I’m talking the Multiverse, anti-matter, CERN, String Theory, purple aliens with sexy tails–wait, she took the tail out–we are saying yes to STEM! And hello, to women in STEM. My kinda book. And Giselle Riley is my book girlfriend!

Devon Walsh, #89, has a crush. Man, is he bad hiding it. Just about anyone looking at him grinding his teeth while other men talk to Giselle can see it written in blood. But nope, Giselle isn’t his type. Too innocent. Too good. Too smart. Too in need of him to help her find the perfect match for her because she can do better than anyone she’s picking out for herself.

Toe Pick.

I’m old enough for that to be romantic and adorable before reading Kelly Anne Blount’s and Lynn Rush’s In The Penalty Box.

It just isn’t going well. Going to open ice time at the local ice rinks is giving her practice and keeping her sane.

Puck Head.
