"You're going to be a daddy."

Looking up into Alexi Petrov’s dark eyes as I break the news, I’m scared out of my mind. 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 i

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.

This series is definitely a recommend but I think if
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
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 love getting to

Puck Me Baby is Amanda (Mandy) and Alexi’s story. A drunk one-night stand turns into a baby on the way. There is only one problem….Mandy can’t remember how to find the daddy. She has moved back home to Portland to raise the baby and be near her friends. So, think of how shocked they felt to find out what a small world it is...he is the best man at her best friend's wedding. How did that go undetected?? He soon finds out that she is pregnant and after doing the quick math he realizes it’s his bab ...more

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.

Alexi and Amanda haven't seen each other sinc

**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. This is a book that hooks you in, gives you enough of the sport for you to feel a part of it, but also makes you take in each character as a friend and you can't help but want them to get what

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 tim ...more

So many stars....this book has my heart...along with Petrov. He is the ideal perfect book boyfriend....we are talking panty melting....swoon all the time. I’m calling double dibs and he’s moving to the top of my BBC (book boyfriend collection). I mean he adores his grandma....I mean totally adores her and is so excited about becoming a daddy. Did I mention he cooks snob calling dibs.

These two have one hot night together, ending with her sneaking away before they exchange information.

After a passionate night, Amanda found herself pregnant with Alexi's baby. She had no idea where to find him, and he doesn't know who she is until they met in a wedding.

I adored both Alexi and Amanda. They're such lovable characters and the two of them have such palpable chemistry. Amanda is sweet and kind, she's a gem. 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 h

I listened to the audiobook and the narrators did a good job. This was a quick low angst listen. I enjoyed Alexi and Mandy's story.
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. And I instantly fell in love with both of the characters, well maybe a little more for Alexi, hello he has an accent...nough said (and yes I read the whole book with a Russian accent in my head. Don't judge).

I'm not going to lie, I cried during this book. Alexi tore my heart out when he was dealing with all of his genetic issues. My heart broke and I wanted

Puck Me Baby is the fourth book in the Motherpuckers Series by Lili Valente. It stars Alexi, a defensemen for the Portland Badgers and Amanda, Diana's BFF and text buddy from Puck Aholic.

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 s

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

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

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.

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.

After a crazy night of margaritas and dancing Amanda makes the risky decision to go home with the sexy, mysterious man who caught her eye. 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

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.

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!

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!

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 ...more

I am officially in LOVE with Alexi Petrov! Swoon!!!

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

Lili Valente has slept under the stars in Greece, eaten dinner at midnight with French men who couldn't be trusted to keep their mouths on their food, and walked alone through Munich's red light district after dark and lived to tell the tale.

These days you can find her writing in a tent beside the sea, drinking coconut water and thinking delightfully dirty thoughts.

“I don’t know. I guess he doesn’t want his grandmother to know that he’s living in sin with a woman he got pregnant out of wedlock. So it’s going to be our little secret for now.” At this point, I’m pretty sure my eyes are bulging out of my head, but Mandy’s voice is breezy as she adds, “No, seriously, it’s fine with me. He’s a great guy and the sex is incredible. So yeah, with all the orgasming I’m doing, I really have no reason to complain. You want to say hi?” Before I can recover from the shock of hearing Mandy tell her mother about our incredible, orgasm-heavy sex life, she taps a button and holds the phone up between us, chirping cheerily, “Say hi to Alexi, Mom!
