Bree Marks is my best friend... My secret crush…

And—wait for it—cursed with a deadly allergy to erecto-plasm. As in she’ll seriously swell up and die if seminal fluid even touches her. Which means finding the perfect guy to punch her V card is literally a matter of life and death.

She wants a no-strings summer fling, but she needs someone she can trust. A puck buddy who

Friends to lovers with humour and heart…

I’m still smiling long after finishing Bree and Shane’s sweet and steamy friends to lovers story. I laughed so much reading this hilarious spin on taking that scary step from the familiar to something more. And doing it while dealing with Bree’s condition? Well… Every warning you ever received about doing the nasty pales in comparison when sex could actually kill you!

Bree is desperate to find out what all the hype is about and finally rid herself of her V-

Puck Buddies really got me thinking and poor Bree is all I have to say. Wow! This book was funny and honest.

Let me start by saying I love Shane. He deserves the man of the year award for the next 10 years at least. First he has this huge crush on Bree. She doesn't feel the same but that doesn't stop him from becoming her best friend and spending pretty much all his free time with her. He fesses up and tells her that this is his last year playing for the Portland Badgers hockey team. He asked fo

Love! Love! Love!
Lili Valente, in my opinion, is one of the best contemporary romance authors. Her characters are as lovable as they are sexy and Bree and Shane are no exception.
Bree might just take the cake for the heroine with the most original backstory. Being allergic to sperm has kept Bree from satisfying some of her more basic desires but Shane might just be the man to help her out with that little problem. With only a month before he moves to a new hockey team, Shane wants one chance to

I have a penchant for friends-to-lover and sports romances, and this book had both! So, I thought, why not? I am glad I decided to check this one out, because it was a whole lotta fun.

Wow! The allergy the heroine had was quite serious, and was keeping her from acting on her feelings for her bestie. When she hears he will be leaving town, she decides she wants to enjoy a friends with benefits type arrangement with him, a fromance (friend romance). These two were all sorts of adorable together, a

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This book like the other books in the series can be read as a stand alone and is just as brilliant in every way as the previous books. I really don't know how the author manages to crank out so many awesome books.

Bree has an allergy to sperm, only found out when messing around when she was 15, therefore punching her v-card has been kind of a challenge. It is only when she has a few drinks at a friends wedding that

Lili Valente is back with the Bad Motherpuckers series... delivering another sexy, swoony, sweet romance that is going to feeling all the feels and leave a perma smile etched onto your face. Lili can do no wrong when she writes but this series has been just that much more... everything.

This was my favorite book of the series. I love every minute of Bree and Shane's love story. The friendship to love story was just amazing.

It has to be one of the most effortless love stories of the series. Plus it was super hot leading up to and during the sexy times.

Have you heard about fromance? No? Then you need to read this book to know all about it. Best friends to lovers romance with really cute initiatives from both ends.

Fromance, it was the best thing I've ever taken from this book so cheers to that.

The best friends to lovers story lines are on my top five favorites and I must say that after reading the previous books from this series, it was not what I expected. My expectation was actually way,

Puck Buddies is the sixth book in the Bad Motherpuckers series by the fabulous and talented Lili Valente. I might be Lili's biggest fan and she just seems to be getting better and better. The writing, the unique plots, the sexy and fun characters. Just everything! Puck Buddies is Shane and Bree's story. Bree is Hailey's sister and Shane is Will's friend. Shane has been attracted to Bree since the minute he saw her. He asked her out and really wanted to date her, but she just wanted to be friends ...more

Puck Buddies is the sixth book in the Bad Motherpuckers series by one of my favorite authors, Lili Valente. I have read every single one of her books and loved them all. From her naughty to sweet reads and everything in between. Now, this is the sixth book but it can be read as a standalone. If you have read the previous books then you have met Bree (Hailey’s sister) and Shane (Will’s best friend/teammate).

Shane and Bree have been friends since they met at a BBQ last summer and over the last si

The Bad Motherpuckers Series has become one of my ultimate favorite from the wonderful Lili Valente. Puck Buddies is the sixth installment and I just could not get enough of Bree and Shane. I love romances that start off as friends. Shane has had a secret crush on Bree for forever. Bree wanted to only be friends and Shane had accepted that they would only be the best of friends. That is until Bree came up with a proposition he couldn't say no to. Poor Bree had a rare and the weirdest of the weir ...more

I love this series so hard! And Puck Buddies may just be my favorite story yet! Although it’s really hard to choose so you should definitely read them all!
I simply adore Shane & Bree!! Shane is the goalie for the Badgers. Bree is in school to one day become a psychologist. They are great friends.
What a fantastic pairing! Lili Valente really knows how to tell a fantastic story while mixing the heat, humor and emotion! Shane and Bree been friends for a long time but that’s it, they’ve only ever

Are you ready for your next Book Boyfriend? Well Shane Wallace will fill that role for sure.

Shane Wallace, NHL hockey star goalie, antique collector of strange salt and pepper shakers and other unique items others have cast aside, and just all around dependable great guy.

Bree Marks, former model, bartender, student working toward her doctorate and virgin who is deathly allergic to sperm.

Do I have your attention? This is the best friends to lovers story. Shane has liked Bree for a long time and

LOVED IT!!!! <3

I did not know that sort of allergy was real but it is(I learned something knew today). I Loved Bree and Shane!! They were really made for one another and they got one another. I am glad they finally got together seeing as Shane always had a thing for her but she turned him down thinking she wasn't good enough for him. I am also glad that Shane fought for their relationship because ...(view spoiler)

I'm a huge fan of Lili Valente's. I love this book too and highly recommend. I have to share my FAVORITE quotes from this book with you. They shouldn't give too much away and should give you an idea of why you NEED to buy and read this book. This book and it's characters have a lot of soul and also makes you laugh out loud.

Book 6 in the Bad Motherpuckers series has proven itself to be my favorite one in the series so far!! In this book we get a look inside Shane and Bree's love story.

Shane and Bree have known each other a while and are best friends. The go out together and search for antiques, his love is finding salt and pepper shakers. Even though he's a hockey player, he hopes to open an antique shop someday.

Bree is a virgin and needs to rid herself of it. Of course, Shane would be the safest choice since they

This is my fave couple of this series...

...which is saying A LOT since I love this series and so love Tanner from Puck-Aholic!!

But Shane and Bree are a whole special kind of special. Being good friends who are going to be more than friends, but nothing serious to watching them fall in love - it was all just fantabulous. As is always true with a Lili Valente story - it was witty and fun and laugh out loud funny. A semen allergy, really?!? I had to look it up and wow - it really is a thing.

Puck Buddies is the 6th book in Lili Valente’s Bad Motherpuckers’ series and is inarguably a perfect addition. I fell head over heels for Shane and Bree from the very start and just couldn’t get enough of them. Their playful bantering was so much fun and very entertaining. As always, Ms. Valente created characters, both main and supporting, which beautifully rounded out this wonderful story pulling me right back into the Bad Motherpuckers world, and once again leaving me with the hope that it wo ...more

I loved this book! Lili Valente is a wonderful author of romantic contemporary novels and this book was very entertaining. I really enjoyed this "friends to lovers" romance about a young woman named Bree who is a virgin, who desperately wants to lose her V-card. There is a bit of a complication though - Bree has a severe allergy to semen.

While Bree is dancing with Shane, (her best friend who is an NHL goalie), she gets the courage after a few too many drinks at her sister's wedding, to ask him

A Review of Puck Buddies by Lili Valente

Bree and Shane - 5+++++ Stars

If you read the book about Hailey and Will, then you will have already met Bree, since she is Hailey's sister. This is one of the best books that I have read in a long time. Especially Bree's "deadly allergy" that you need to read about. You want to pick this one up as soon as you can.

I love the fact that this is the first one in which there is talk of a trade (which happens often in the hockey world). Bree and Shane were super cute together and I loved their fromance and romance gestures. The ending went full circle and I like that one of the main conflict was left unresolved because it imitates the real life much better.
Lauren - SERIESous Books
This was cute and entertaining but it didn't wow me. It's charming and has some funny moments. I mean Bree's whole situation is both sad while providing some comic relief.

I guess this one just reminded me a little too much of the first book in the series with the whole friends to more situation. But I didn't feel the chemistry as much here as I did with that very first book.

Yet another awesome book!

I’m super sad because I’m done with the Bad Motherpuckers series. Soooooo sad!
Puck Buddies was delicious and funny and sweet! Shane and Bree had such an easy and amazing chemistry. I loved their banter and silliness. Definitely not enough silliness in most romance novels. I loved how Shane was so concerned with her allergy and made sure she was safe.
Hopefully there will be more Hockey god novels. I think Tank needs some romance in his life.
