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 ...more
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- ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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.
Puck Buddies is the sixth in this incredible series, a fun and quirky friends to lovers romance, and I gotta say... it hooked me from that blurb. I mean have you read it LOL (never heard of an allergy to s ...more

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,

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)[ if years had passed I would have been P***ed off. Yea Long distant relationship...more
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. I mean "Pegasus P*ssy"!🤣 (which by the way I had to "edit" the word "p*ssy" so that my review doesn't end up with it and me being put in Amazon jail) Thanks again f ...more
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 ...more
...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.
So from ...more
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 ...more
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 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.
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.
These days you can find her writing in a tent beside the sea, drinking coconut water and thinking delightfully dirty thoughts.
