This man is the most terrifying defender in the NHL, and if it weren't for my sporty new baby bump, I probably wouldn't believe we hooked up that night. (Yes, I've sworn off margaritas for life.) But the Alexi who goes to my doctor appointments, moves me into his guesthouse, and cooks me so many gourmet meals I look like I'm carrying twins? He isn't scary at all. He's sweet. And intense. And so sexy I want to smear him with honey and lick it off every inch of his powerful, protective, oh-so-swoony-worthy body. But that's not a part of our relationship anymore.

But no matter how much I want her, I don't know if I've got what it takes to be that guy--the one with his heart on his sleeve. I learned the hard way that love can get real ugly, real fast. But when my new family is threatened, I realize how much I want this woman and our baby in my life for the long haul, and how hard I'm willing to fight for them.

    NOW LIVE! Amazon US * Amazon UK I feel like I've been going crazy waiting to get my hands on this book after I read an excerpt for it. Alexi intrigued me in the previous stories and then to find out that he's going to be a dad made me want his story even more. I ended up really enjoying him and Amanda together and I loved how protective he was with her. It was completely swoon worthy and made me fall for him so hard I'm surprised I'm not dizzy.

    Sexy Hockey story... I really enjoyed this sweet and sexy hockey story. It was more emotional than I would have guessed. I enjoyed both the hero and the heroine. - No cheating - No ow/om drama -slight pushing away but they are still together throughout - some steam - neither virgins - No violence of a sexual nature -safety - heroine was not with others after the ONS but it isn't clear if the hero was.- I needed clarification on that (3 months between ONS and the time they run into each other again Sexy Hockey story...

    Fourth installment and not bad. Puck Me Baby is about the romance between Amanda and Alexei. Basically the A squad or A Squared if you think about it. These two were so freaking swoon-worthy that it's not even funny or a joke. I loved them so much. Heck this series is lovable from start to finish (so far). There's honestly so many things I love about this series. The whole no virgins or insta anything is a plus. The chemistry between the two main characters is pure and genuine.

I'm gonna take a mini break from it though because listening to audios over the weekend is a bit heard to do. Still can't wait to dive into the next book though!

My thoughts: This book was good...not as good as the first one I read, but good. The humor in this book is great! There were times I was laughing out loud. I loved Alexi’s character. His protectiveness, his wanting to step up...not just out of obligation...but because he wants to be a father, and his love for his babushka….all added up to one SWOONWORTHY sexy Russian. I didn’t think the chemistry between these two was as good as the first book I read.

    Puck Me Baby is the fourth book in the Bad Motherpucker series by one of my go-to authors, Lili Valente. I always know that I will swoon, tear up and laugh while reading one of her books. This series is a group of standalone books that are connected by one hockey team. The Portland Badgers. If you read Puck Aholic then you got a little tease at the end about what happened between Alexi and Amanda. Yes! There was a baby made in the making of the book.

I always know that I will swoon, tear up and laugh while reading one of her books. This series is a group of standalone books that are connected by one hockey team. The Portland Badgers. If you read Puck Aholic then you got a little tease at the end about what happened between Alexi and Amanda. Yes! There was a baby made in the making of the book. Alexi and Amanda haven't seen each other since that night. A one-night stand that could never be forgotten. Alexi woke up to an empty bed and a few weeks later Amanda woke up to two pink lines. And now, almost three months after that night, they are in the same room. Shocked. They didn't know they were only one degree away from each other this whole time. Then Alexi got an even bigger shock when he found out she was having his baby. You would think he would be freaking out right? Nope...he steps up. He wants this. He wants her. He wants a family. But he also wants what is best for Amanda. And right now, that's friendship. It makes sense. They don't really know one another. Hell, they didn't even share last names the night they met. He is determined to show her that he is in this for the long haul. That this was fate's way of showing them that they are meant to be together. The three of them. He knows she is scared. He is too. He thought he found love once and it blew up in his face. Left him for dead. He truly believes Amanda is the woman he is suppose to jump in the box for. But, does she believe he is the one to show her what love truly feels like? Awe...I loved this couple! Alexi is a badass on the ice but a protective sweetheart with an alpha side off it. He wants to take care of what's his no matter the cost. He is definitely swoon-worthy both inside and outside of the bedroom. Amanda is strong, beautiful, and doesn't just take his shit laying down. She fights for what she believes in even if it's a bit dangerous. Together, they made me laugh, cry, and tingly. If you know what I mean, and I know you do. Overall...it's a fun and sexy addition to the series. It's a story full of love, laughter, sexiness, and baby elephants. P.S. Love the text messages. Quotes: “Then how on Earth did this happen?” “I don’t know.” He brushes my badly-in-need-of-a-trim bangs from my forehead. “We just got lucky, I guess.” “Jesus. This team gossips more than my grandmother and her quilting circle.” “Don’t give Cruise any ideas,” Brendan says. “He’s already trying to make me learn how to knit.” “That guy is pretty sexy when he’s making sure I’m fed.” Alexi leans in to murmur in my ear, “Confession: that guy has noticed that good food makes your clothes fall off. He has ulterior motives.”

    **My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review** This is the fourth book in the series although it could possibly be read as a stand alone story. Its book like these that could get me into sports as we don't have anything major where i live, so i have to live through books.

Both Alexi and Amanda have been hurt in the past and both are hesitant to let go and move forward, but eventually it is Alexi that has the most important lesson to learn. I loved these characters and really hope that this series continues.

    Puck Me Baby is Lili Valente's newest addition to her fantastically sexy and romantic hockey series, Bad Motherpuckers. Yeah, with a series of that name you'd never believe how truly lovable and sweet her heroes are, but there is no denying that they most definitely are.

Adding to it strong and courageous women who melt the heroes' hearts and you have an outstanding series which I just cannot get enough of. From book one I was completely hooked, and Ms. Valente continues to keep my attention time and again, page after page, chapter after chapter. And Alexi and Mandy's story fits perfectly into this series. They are destined to be together and from the moment they meet their hearts are truly entangled together forever. As their story is revealed and they endeavor to find their way including their exchange of letters and texts, this book left me with tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat as I experienced the unwavering love they share. Love love love Alexi and Mandy's story and am definitely hoping for lots more from Lili Valente of this series as I'm not sure I'll ever want to say goodbye to these Bad Motherpuckers.

If you don’t read any other one of the series....READ THIS ONE. Absolutely wonderful book.

Alexi can be intense at times, he puts out a front on the hockey field but he's gentle and understanding with Amanda. Puck Me Baby felt particularly real because the drama that happened was because of a genetics problem rather than a cheating/third party/ love triangle situation. (view spoiler)[my heart broke when it was revealed that alexi's previous baby didn't survive because of a genetics defect. but it was a bad and irresponsible choice that he lied by omission. a mother should always know everything in order protect her baby. (hide spoiler)] Lili Valente did a wonderful job with the supporting characters as well. I loved Diana, she's a fantastic sister/best friend to Amanda, and is always armed with ice cream and a good movie whenever Amanda is feeling a little under the weather. I loved the moment when Amanda called her mother to tell her about the pregnancy (view spoiler)[ and she was talking how big Alexi is and their night time fun time. IT CRACKED ME UP "I'm sorry, Alexi. I tried to stop her, but she wouldn't listen." "Diana?" I croak. "Yes, it's me, and Mandy's Mom has no idea you're a champ in the sack. You're safe, my friend." LOLOL. (hide spoiler)] Overall, I highly recommend Puck Me Baby. It's steamy and sexy and cute and funny. It's different from the other novels that surrounds a pregnancy and potential relationship.

    I liked this story. A couple meets, has a one night stand, and doesn't see each other until their at their friend(s) wedding. Well the woman is pregnant. And yes, your the daddy. I bet something similar happens to people in real life more than we know. I would have enjoyed this more if the conflict had been about something more than Amanda's insecurities. Yes, Alexi should have shared what he knew was a possible issue from the start, but once she got the information she went into a tailspin. I ma I liked this story.

Or get some help with your issues. Still glad to see Dani, Tanner, and Jason (he has been my fave from the start)

    Lili Valente really knows how to write a book. I was over the moon when I found out this book was coming out. I absolutely love this series.

It was definitely not what I was expecting.

Both want more, but their fears and past experiences keeps their hearts guarded. Alexi lets Amanda see the sweeter, tender and loving side that not many get to see. Soon Amanda finds the wall around her heart falling and she is more than ready to take a leap of faith. As things between Amanda and Alexi strengthen, a baby scare rocks their sweet little bubble. Alexi feels the guilt of a secret he has been carrying. When it is revealed, Amanda's is floored, her one rule was no lies.

I just adored Alexi and Amanda. The letters and texts had me laughing, crying and hoping. Lili Valente once again has written another beautiful story with a strong, kind, selfless heroin and a alpha male with just the right amount of tenderness, sweetness and protectiveness. I love my Motherpucker men and women, can't wait to see what Lili has in store for us next.

    I have been reading a LOT of secret baby books lately, I have no idea why, but I would count this as one of the good ones. Alexi and Amanda shared one sizzling night, and that was it, until fate brought them back together. Their reunion came with surprises. One of the biggest being that Amanda was pregnant, and Alexi was the father. I was curious about why Alexi was so negative about love and attachment, so I enjoyed learning his backstory.

There was quite a bit of heartbreak there, as well as some family history. But, he had this incredible grandmother, and I was glad she was part of her life. She helped him see things in a different light, when necessary, and raised him to be a decent man. I was pulling for these two, because I thought they would have an amazing forever together. Both had some baggage they needed to unpack together, but I was happy to wait around, while they did. There is a bit of an issue that arose, which brought tears to my eyes, but Amanda and Alexi faced it together, and were maybe a bit stronger because of it. Definitely one of my favorites in the series. BLOG | INSTAGRAM |TWITTER | BLOGLOVIN | FRIEND ME ON GOODREADS

    Another fantastic 5 Star book in this series! Lili just writes the heck out of a romantic comedy. But while this story does have the funny components, it also has some pretty serious moments some of which just made my heart break for Alexi and so many incredibly sweet ones too. I love the storyline and Alexi & Mandy! Considering he is the enforcer on the Badgers he is the sweetest most caring, gentle protective man when it comes to Mandy. I love how he remembers so much of what they talked about Another fantastic 5 Star book in this series! Lili just writes the heck out of a romantic comedy. But while this story does have the funny components, it also has some pretty serious moments some of which just made my heart break for Alexi and so many incredibly sweet ones too. I love the storyline and Alexi & Mandy! Considering he is the enforcer on the Badgers he is the sweetest most caring, gentle protective man when it comes to Mandy. I love how he remembers so much of what they talked about that first night. Mandy is sassy and sweet and a really good person. She may have set out to just let loose by having a one night stand to help try and get over her awful break-up, but that night gave her the greatest unexpected gift. Because she was drunk she wasn’t really sure how to find her mystery hookup. As luck would have it he is at her best friend’s wedding because he is his teammate. Something happens and she didn’t intend for him to find out the way he does but that was kind of out of her control. When she confirms to him that it is his baby, he totally steps up and is 100% all in. They decide to just be friends though because they don’t want to mess that up but we all know the best laid plans and all that........ Alexi & Mandy have some serious chemistry and naturally hot and steamy times ensue. And they are so hot together! Loved everything about the scene when they went out for tacos especially the pepper plate and the sexy yogurt kiss! Literally Hot!! Also Loved the text messages and letters. A couple of my fave quotes/ lines form the book are: “You have this way of making totally benign things sound ....absolutely filthy.” “Is that in purpose Alexi?” “Or are you accidentally naughty?” “I’m not sure. But I’m happy to keep having hard, deep, all-night-long conversations with you until we figure it out.” I’m a man that now knows love isn’t a trap or a box; it’s a pair of wings and a wide-open sky and absolutely no limits to how high you can fly.

    More like, puck me up, baby? We have already learned in the previous book that Diana's bestie, Mandy had a hot one night stand after an 80's party. I can't remember clearly, but I'm pretty sure we knew or at least had a strong feeling it was with Alexi. The brooding, cranky, has one hell of a poker face, hot as hell Russian defenseman, Alexi. Thanks to a little accident after Diana and Tanner's wedding, Mandy finally finds her mystery man and he's quick to figure out he's her baby daddy. Since Alex More like, puck me up, baby?

Since Alexi is the kind of man who likes to be in control, soon Mandy finds herself moved into his pool house, being fed anything she craves and just generally being taken care of. It's a bit unexpected from Alexi and it's not like she expects much from men in general after what happened with her ex. But Alexi is quick to force her defenses to lower with his sweet and caring side. They are both falling fast and hard, but there's something Alexi is not telling Mandy that could ruin their blissful future. A sexy and funny read, like this whole series, low on the drama and angst. Mandatory for hockey lovers!

    Hot and Heavenly!! Alexi and Amanda shared a torrid night of passion. After sneaking away the next morning the two thought they would never see each other again. When they see each other at a mutual friend’s wedding, Amanda can’t keep her baby a secret any longer. Super hot. Hilarious yet balanced with the perfect amount of angst. Completely lovely story. Alexi is the perfect blend of alpha with heart. Amanda is sweet yet formidable. Absolutely loved this book!!

    Good read Was a quick good read. Loved the characters. Was quick paced with just enough angst and not over done. Alexi was great and so we're his friends giving him advise.

They spend an incredible night together but before things have a chance to get awkward Amanda sneaks off, without ever getting his name. Fast forward to a few months later at her best friend's wedding, where her sexy one night stand just happens to be friends and teammates with the groom. Now Amanda has no choice but to face him and let him know the exciting news...she's pregnant and he's the father. Alexi Petrov is known for being the most terrifying defender in the NHL but when he finds out about Amanda and the baby he becomes the world's biggest softie. All of his protective instincts kick in and he insists she move into his guest house where he can help her out and keep her safe. And maybe with enough time, convince her to give him a real chance at a relationship. I loved everything about these two and how their relationship develops. Watching Alexi faces his fears and take care of Amanda is so sweet and heartfelt. They are a perfect couple and fit in wonderfully with the Bad Motherpuckers series.

    This book! I've been dying to get my hands on this bad pucker since we caught a tease of it. Surprise baby books pretty much do it for me, and this book is why! Sexy, swoonworthy, and addictive. Puck Me Baby has it all: sexy alpha hockey player, strong, independent heroine, and chemistry that sizzles from page to page! I hope this series never ends! <3 This book!

    The Delight I am in love with Lili Valente's stories! I actually read this one before Hot as Puck, and so out of order, but I love this troube of babies. And no she wasn't keeping it from him. Why do I love baby troupes? I just don't know, but I do! Review Driving a lot this year I have been starting audio books and then coming home buying them in eBook and then finishing them. This was no different. Why change it when this is how I discovered the author! Puck Me, Baby is actually the 4th book i The Delight I am in love with Lili Valente's stories! I actually read this one before Hot as Puck, and so out of order, but I love this troube of babies. And no she wasn't keeping it from him. Why do I love baby troupes? I just don't know, but I do! Review Driving a lot this year I have been starting audio books and then coming home buying them in eBook and then finishing them. This was no different. Why change it when this is how I discovered the author! Puck Me, Baby is actually the 4th book in the Bad Motherpuckers series. While I read this out of order, I wasn't overly confused. There were some characters I felt had a story, but never lost. So take it with a grain of salt if you are like me and don't like coming into the middle of a series. Alexi Petrov and Amanda Esposito have one of those one night stands off the pages of this book. Amanda is drunk, Alexi didn't realize it and they had a passion filled night. When the sun rose the next day Amanda snuck out thinking that would be the end of it all. Oh, no. Now she is pregnant and doesn't know who he is and can't find the mailbox she remembers from his house. How is she supposed to contact him? Alexi has one of those nights he remembers. He felt a connection to a woman who ghosted him. Now he sees her at his friends wedding and then loses her again. Deciding to go home he finds her about to faint in the parking lot. He is ever the galant knight in shining armor and calls an ambulance....only to find out he is going to be a daddy. That's the surprise at the beginning of the story. Two people who don't know each other creating a life. Alexi isn't going to let her disappear again, so he makes alpha like demands on her when he sees where she is living, the harm she can get into and how he wants to be in this woman's life. But one thing  is holding him back. He's been down this road and holds a secret that could harm his baby and the woman carrying the baby. Amanda isn't in a great place at the moment. Dumped by her boyfriend who turns out to be married isn't the highlight of her life. Then not being able to hold down a nursing job for long, she struggles to just pay the rent on a dumpy apartment. She's already in love with the baby in her belly. Very independent, she won't let Alexi do things for her or even tell her what she can do when she is being silly. These two have a lot of chemistry, but also a lot of secrets that can come crashing down. Throw in a hockey player who goes out of town a lot, a nurse working a temp job, and a pregancy that can take a turn neither are expecting. It made for a heartwarming story of love, and the harm words can do to someone. And having a baby on the way made this all the more enjoyable even for the dark moments that bleed in. Now I have to go back and start the series again...well I actually read the first book before I wrote this review....so that review got written first.

Your smile is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. Your smile makes me believe that the world is a better place than I think. ~ Puck Me Baby Alright, it’s time for a confession . . . I fell so far behind on my reading that I missed new books from not one but TWO of my favorite authors—Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente. *Hangs head in shame*. But it’s okay, because I’m all caught up now, I’m head over swoony-heels in love, and excited AF. Why the excitement? Well, aside from loving Hard Wood and Puck Me Baby, it’s because Ms. Blakely and Ms. Valente are planning on releasing a book together. My inner fangirl is freaking out. Anywho, it’s because of that, that I decided to make this a joint review. These two authors are among my favorites for similar reasons—fun, flirty banter; sexy, swoony heroes; smart, sassy heroines; love stories that are endless love, heart-racing romance and imbued with all the feels. Take Hard Wood for example. Funny, punny name? Check. Charming, irreverent hero? Check. Likable, relatable heroine? Check. It’s an incredibly enjoyable book—light-hearted, mixing the right kind of miscommunication (yes, IMHO, there is a wrong kind in romance novels, but that’s a discussion for another time) and the right amount of honesty and bravery with a hiking cat. I said hiking cat. In a review. That is the magic of Ms. Blakely’s writing. It’s quirky enough to be playful and different, yet real enough to be, well, real. And it’s the same kind of magic you’ll find when you read a book by Ms. Valente, also. I’ve loved every single book of hers I have read, but her Bad Motherpuckers series has its own little place in my heart. And that little place is now stamped with the name Alexi Petrov. You guys, if you need a lesson in how to spell deliciously chivalrous . . . here you go: A-L-E-X-I-P-E-T-R-O-V. But here’s the thing about Puck Me Baby—it’s not just Alexi that’s infinitely lovable. Amanda, too, is someone kinda irresistible. She’s sunny, funny and sometimes even punny, but her insides? They’re bruised in a heart-breaking way, and if that doesn’t make you want to wish her into reality and give her a hug then IDK, you’re probably a monster. I kid, I kid. You’re not a monster, but you ARE missing out. Hard Wood and Puck Me Baby are two of my favorite books of 2017, and two of my favorite ever books written by two of my favorite authors. So, consider this messy confession more of a love letter if you must, but also considering one-clicking these books ASAP. You don’t want to miss out. I don’t know where we are headed tonight. I don’t know where we’re going. All I know is I can’t turn back. ~ Hard Wood

    I am so in love with Lili Valente's Bad Motherpuckers series. Alexi's sweet, sensitive, logical, a control-freak and protective caretaker. He hates Fate, and loves his babushka. Both Alexi and Alex's parents had terrible marriages and they each use them as examples of what-not-to-do. Amanda's extremely cautious about getting into a relationship with Alexi. She was in a relationship for years with a man who she didn't know was already married. Plus he had children by two different women. Amanda c I am so in love with Lili Valente's Bad Motherpuckers series. Alexi's sweet, sensitive, logical, a control-freak and protective caretaker. He hates Fate, and loves his babushka.

She was in a relationship for years with a man who she didn't know was already married. Plus he had children by two different women. Amanda cannot abide liars. Alexi and Amanda's romance started as a one-night-stand. When Amanda moves to Portland she tries to find Alexi, but can't locate him. The attraction they had when they first met is still there and stronger than they remember. Although resist falling into a relationship they can't help themselves. Their romance is delicious. "Puck Me, Baby" is wonderfully sexy, adorably sweet, and a fabulous rom/com. Lili Valente is a goddess when it comes to Heroes. They are Goofy, Geeky, Softies, and/or Out-of-Their-Depths they're also dangerously Sexy and seriously Alpha. Each of these Heroes are unique, charming, and funny. Luckily almost all of them show up to offer Alexi advice in "Puck Me, Baby". Of course Justin Cruise is determined to get more of his team mates knitting. Tanner Nowicki is mostly on his honeymoon. But Brendan Daniels does have words of wisdom. We also get to meet the (hopefully) upcoming Hero Will Saunders. Lili Valente is a genius with her Heroines as well as they're typically smart, hard-working, and just-plain-good. Luckily they also usually enjoy some super-steamy-sexy-times which makes for fun reading. "Puck Me, Baby" will not only make you laugh but you'll definitely shed a tear. Alexi and Amanda's romance is sweet, poignant, and fun. To read the entire review please visit: http://wp.me/p4XqxF-2bU This novel was provided, voluntarily read, and honestly reviewed.

This is such a fun sexy series but Puck Me Baby is hands down the best complete story. Alexi is the scariest defender in the professional hockey world. Amanda is a hilarious but sweet pediatric nurse. They have a hot one night stand and part ways unknowing they made a baby that will bring them together forever. Twelve weeks later they are reunited at their mutual friends wedding. Alexi is elated that he is back in the presence of the sexy woman who bolted from his bed the next morning. Mandy is grateful for the chance encounter to tell the sexy Russian he is going to be a Dad. I loved these two as a couple. They were sweet and open to their feelings regardless of their pasts which tried to hold them back. Alexi is by far one of my top favorite heros and that's no exaggeration. He constantly put his own fears and worries aside as thought of what Mandy was going through first. He had endured so much and wanted so badly to believe this was his chance and things would be different. He was protective and loving and sweet and sexy! This one had me reaching for a couple of tissues. They go through one of the most difficult times an expecting couple can endure. They experience true fear but come out stronger because of it. Through it all you know how much he loves her, not because of the baby, but in addition to the life they made. He knew he wanted her in his life; baby or no baby. "Please tell me there's a way to make this better, a way to prove to you that I'm worthy of a place in your life and in your heart." This was a beautiful tear jerker and seriously one of my favorite reads this year! I want more!!!
