A hockey/fake date/not-quite-a-virgin very wrong romantic comedy

You know those stories where an adorably misunderstood clumsy girl needs a fake date to a wedding so she asks her brother’s best friend and they accidentally fall in love?

I wish that was the kind of life I lead, but it’s not.

I don’t need a date to a wedding. I need a date to a funeral.

Author's note, 1 week before release:
Once upon a time, Tyler Jaeger was a really cranky hockey player filling in for Ares Berger in BEAUTY AND THE BEEFCAKE. And once upon a time, Muffy Periwinkle was a really bad matchmaker running her own company, Muff Matchers. And they were both sorta into each other, kinda, in CHARMING AS PUCK, but then... well, then they had this night where they tried to hook up, and it didn't exactl

The beloved Thrusters series is back with Tyler Jaeger and Muffy Periwinkle’s story! Muffy is Kami’s cousin (Charming as Puck) and we first met her in Charming as Puck. Muffy is very much a Pippa heroine; she’s faced adversity, made some biggish mistakes and is resilient. She’s been through a lot and has some secrets. Tyler is having some issues and he’s kind of in a funk at the beginning of the book. But, fate will put these two together after an awkward situation from their recent past. Tyler ...more

A truly FANTASTIC, outlandish, and romantic back half more than makes up for the slow start on this one. We'll talk about that slow start in a minute, but I've gotta talk about my love of Tyler and Muffy first. These two are the quintessential quirky couple, and their love story is SO FUNNY, offbeat, and smile-inducing... plus it's got some stellar sexual tension. Once I got a better feel for the story, I really fell for these two, and the back half was so, so good. It's low angst, playful, and ...more

The author Pippa Grant will tell you this book, can be read as a standalone. She wouldn’t be lying but then again she wouldn’t exactly be telling you the whole truth either. Pippa has gone out of her way in this story to prominently include so many characters from not only the other Copper Valley Thrusters books but also Daisy and West and the entire Jaeger clan from her book Crazy for Loving You in the Bluewater Billionaires series that I’m going to suggest that if you haven’t already, you read ...more

Muffy and Tyler once had a thing. A very short, very unsatisfactory "thing" and she's been avoiding him ever since. Unfortunately for Tyler, he's had it pretty bad ever since, meaning a very important part of his body hasn't worked since then. So he wants some closure from Muffy. If it takes going to a funeral with her as her fake date, then that's what he'll do. For closure. Not for any other reason. Nope. RIGHT...

Tyler Jaeger has a problem. His junk doesn’t work, and he knows just who to blame.

After a post-game one night stand at his usual bunny bar, Tyler’s body has no reaction to anyone else. The cocky hockey player’s solution? Track down Muffy Periwinkle and rock her world again – he’s certain that will exorcise her memory so he can move on.

Muffy Periwinkle just wishes she was one of those girls who had her life together. She has to be the world’s worst matchmaker, having just a handful of clients an

I have to say I freaking loved Muffy and Tyler together. These two were fire, even if awkwardness was an essential part of their early relationship. I love that she finally took a chance on a woman like muffy. Sometimes an awkward first time (or two of them) can really affect someone. Not every woman was born to be a smex goddess from the minute they meet a guy. I deducted half of a star because I really hold have used her leaving out the stuff with the bunnies. It just gets creepy. What

I've never laughed so hard reading!

What do a broken penis, fried fish and a funeral have in common? Tyler Jaeger's all access pass to Muffy Periwinkle. Expect this growly, overprotective, smexy hockey player has his work cut out for him. See, it's gonna take a special kinda man to handle a woman like Muffy...and her cat...and her mother, but desperate times call for desperate measures. With his junk on the fritz and the only logical explanation being this one encounter that may have been better

I am so glad that Thrusty managed to grab Pippa's attention and shove Tyler Jaeger in her face to write his story. I've been waiting on this one since I read his brother West and Daisy's story in Crazy for Loving You. The Jaeger family is unique. Their group texts are next level hilarious. And since Tyler is the baby, well, you can imagine what his life is like with four older sisters. There are no secrets. So, with this stage already set, how can I Pucking Love You be anything less than 💫cosmic ...more

Told from Muffy and Tyler’s points of views, this is a wonderful friends to lovers, fake date, what are we doing story. With Ms. Grant’s usual humor, romance, and wonderful characters, this is a five star book. She does an excellent job of balancing fun, flirting, romance, humor, and drama. I definitely recommend you not read this around strangers as they will wonder why you are laughing, smirking, and swooning at any given time while reading.

I love this book! Yes it’s a little bit crazy, bizarre and off the charts but it grabs your heart and never lets go. Muffy has a heart of gold, with the grandest intentions but seems to live with the luck of black cat always walking in front of her. Every day seems to be Friday the 13th in her life. She feels less than what she is and has no idea that she is adored.

3.5 Stars! An enjoyable, steamy and of course quirky read (it is Pippa after all!)

Muffy - and yes that is her actual name! She's spent her life trying to be the opposite of her mother, who's had her fair share of male company, and so is trying to set up her matchmaking company for 'misfits'. Her clientele are those who don't fit the current perception of 'perfect'; from socially awkward to a non-supermodel physique.

Her heroine's are always so relatable and REAL! You truly want to be best friends with them, and Muffy was no different. We got to meet Muffy in Charming as Puck and adored her there, but always knew there was more going on. And this girl is one word. Resilient. Muffy’s life has not been easy.

I think all of us are a bit like Muffy, a woman who suffers from serious imposter syndrome. She never thinks she’s good enough, she thinks her business isn’t working, and the only thing she believes she’s good at is failing. And oh my god, was she so endearing, I kind of wanted to give her a hug all the time and tell her it will be okay and you’re not the disaster you think you are.

This is book 5 in the Copper Valley Thrusters - Tyler and Muffy - but it’s a standalone so you do not have to read the others to enjoy this HEA.

I rarely laugh out loud while reading a book, but I Pucking Love You had me laughing so much that my cats were giving me strange looks. Tyler and Muffy are so wacky and adorable that you can’t help but fall in love with them.

They will go to the funeral and then come home and go their own ways because nothing could go wrong at a funeral…

The queen of snorting, guffawing, make-my-heart-burst-and-break-out-in-song romantic comedy has done it again. And the best part is the return to the Copper Valley hockey team we all know and love, as well as the cameos from some of our very favorite characters. (Berger twins, anyone?)

Muffy Periwinkle needs a date to her best friend's father's funeral for reasons that are revealed fairly early in the story. Tyler Jaeger has a brief, tantalizing history with Muffy, and he considers them friends.

If you have not read any of these yet, never fear jump in skates first and Muffy and Tyler will guide you along the way. By the time this book is over, you will be reading to dig into more of the Pippaverse like the rest of us. So many of the amazing characters pop in to visit in this b ...more

No strong representation of diverse characters or minority identities.

Overall: 2.75-stars

I didn’t believe the Hero wanted to be with the Heroine for the first 50% of the book. Basically, after the funeral the book is great but before, I found it so frustrating because of the Hero. He came across as incredibly shallow and self-centred.

Muffy Periwinkle is the everyday hardworking woman we all are; busting our butts to get ahead, living life and dealing with insecurities. We've all had that mom, or loved one say "mija, have you gained weight? You need to keep healthy so you can keep/find a man", or something of the

Until now, I had only listened to books by this author, and I was afraid I wouldn’t laugh as much with the written words. I was mistaken. I snorted-laughed on a regular basis while reading this book.

Back to a hockey romance this time–as it’s my favorite genre–with new or returning quirky characters like only this author knows how to write. The main female characters are always strong and independent, and Muffy is no different. What was quite new–at least for me–was the level of solidarity betwee
