They call me the Ice Dragon but it's really just all for show.
—Boris Drăghici, VEGAS CRUSH

The Ice Dragon was traded to Las Vegas for one reason and one reason only.

To bring the Crush another Cup Championship.

But off the ice, there’s something not right with my money.

My financial managers in Russia are probably stealing from me.

So I really need the expert eye of a pro to in

Okay, Puck Money has officially become my favorite book in the Vegas Crush series! Boris and Natalia are such a sweet couple together!

I think this couple resonated with me so much because Boris is not your typical hard partying, womanizing hockey player which is a very rare thing. As much as I love reading about those guys, it is so refreshing to read about a guy who really just wants to find that special someone to settle down with and live life. Not a one night stand every night after the gam

For all the nerdy ladies out there, you have a Boris waiting for you out there somewhere!!
Talia is such a great person, she tells you like it is, curses like a sailor! Boris a bit surprised at first, however it fits Talia.
Boris a down to earth kind of guy, gets taken advantage by his own people. Nope, nope, nope! That triggers something in Talia and she calls them out on it.
When they aren't constantly saying sorry to each other, Boris and Talia are great together.

This is a cheeky romance...Puck money is a swoon worthy romance between a nerdy girl and hot asf hockey player. Talia is anything but a puck bunny as she helps Boris with his finances. Boris is anything but boring as he falls for his financial advisor.

What did I like? The nerdy yet young interaction between these two is playful and intriguing. Something in the water in Sin City as all the guys on the Crush team are falling in love and having babies. I like how Boris and Talia fit each other...

Boris and Talia's slow burn romance in Puck Money sucked me in from the first page straight through to the last!

Boris is not what you may expect from a star athlete. He definitely has skills on the ice, but off the ice he is not really into the party scene or puck bunnies. He keeps his private life private, and he is looking for someone to spend his life with that will see the man, not the star persona.

When he first meets Talia, they both feel the attraction but Talia's last experience with a m

Puck Money may be my new favorite book in the Vegas Crush series. Boris and Talia are the sweetest, most endearing, down to earth couple of the series. Puck Money follows the no fraternization pattern of the other books, but not because Crush policy this time.
Talia is a young, nerdy, super smart, financial advisor new to Las Vegas. Her company moved her to Vegas to start fresh after she had an affair with a married client (she didn't know he was married,BTW).

5 star Review Puck Money (Vegas Crush #4) by Raine Miller writing as Brit DeMille
The fourth book in the series and can definitely be read as a stand alone, although all the books are so good I recommend you one click all of them, you won’t be disappointed.

Boris Draghici, what a hot and sexy hockey player this man is. I think I may have a new book boyfriend, he really ticked the boxes for me and the woman that tamed him, Talia
was his destiny.

Book 4 in the Vegas Crush Series of Stand-alone’s although I’m sure once you pick up one of these great hockey reads you will hooked on the guys from the Vegas Crush......
Boris Draghici may be known as the Ice Dragon but that’s for show this hot hockey player has a heart of gold and he is waiting for his soulmate to come into his life, could his new financial advisor Talia be the one .........
I don’t think I have the words that can describe how much I love Boris and Talia, their story took over

Puck Money was a steamy, fun read. :-)

Boris Draghici is not your typical hockey player. I think that is what has made him my favorite. His imperfections make him the perfect book boyfriend. He is exactly the guy that every girl would love to call her own.

Talia is the smart, insecure beauty that finds just the right way to reach the gentle gain that Boris is.

Their love story is a steamy, exciting road that I enjoyed traveling. It was fun visiting friendly faces from other stories along the way.

Ummm - I just wanna know what rock I’ve been living under to only just find this hockey series. Now having said that, as I am late to the party I can definitely say that this book reads as a stand-alone. I also believe that some of the characters that make appearances happen to be the main characters from the previous books. I was going to go back and read them anyway but after finishing Boris & Talia’s story I am even more determined.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book.

Author Raine Miller has me totally in love with Boris!
He is such a big teddy bear that I want to keep for my very own.
I loved Boris and Talia.
Boris is not your typical hockey player and I liked how he is such a sweet and very romantic guy. He totally stole my heart like he did Talia.
Talia is such a smart, funny woman who is totally the opposite to Boris. When they get together, its is full of tension and angst and chemistry that can not be denied! Loved the push and pull between these two!

Well Raine Miller (writing as Brit DeMille) has once again managed to make me fall in love with yet another Russian hockey player Boris in Puck Hockey. This is the fourth book in the Vegas Crush series and let me tell you if you didn't like hockey before you definitely will now with Boris and Talia's beautiful story.

Puck Money is one of the sweeter stories as Boris is not your typical single hockey player who is all about partying and one night stands with many different women. On the contrary,

Totally in love with Boris and Talia the hero and heroine of Puck Money, the fourth standalone book in the Vegas Crush series. I loved that Boris is not the typical hero, that resonated with me and made me love him even more. Talia is a fierce protective young woman who is trying to make it on her own and give herself a clean slate after a big mistake from her past. As always, Raine Miller gives us lots of romance, sexiness with lots "woo-worthiness" and her usual super happy ever afters. ...more

I’m all about the new author experience in 2020 and even tho I read a very short story by this author about 3 years ago as part of an anthology, it’s the only one I’ve read so she’s new to me right now. So far, I am winning at the new author experience and this story is part of it! The chemistry of not only Boris and Talia but that of the story had me hooked and reading in one sitting!

Raine Miller gives us another Hot Russian hockey player to fall in love with. Boris is a smoking hot more laid back hockey player who has been traded to the Crush. Not happy with his finance advisors in Russia he seeks help and is introduced to young, fiesty, strong, smart and beautiful Talia. There is a connection between these two but both fight it because they don't want to mix business and pleasure. I swear I just keep falling for each hockey player she writes. When Boris says Can I pleasure ...more

As soon as Puck Money hit my kindle, I couldn't wait to start reading. I love hockey romance but most off all I love Raine Miller. She's one of the most talented and versatile authors in this industry. No matter if she writes historicals, contemporary or hockey romance, she always manages to make my heart soar. It's impossible to not fall in love with her heroes and heroines. Especially when they are as sweet as Boris and Talia, who were refreshingly very different from the previous couples in t ...more

This is the first book I've read in the Vegas Crush series by Brit DeMille (aka Raine Miller) and I can honestly say you can most definitely read these books as standalones.
This book was about a Russian hockey player named Boris that just got traded to the Vegas team. He is a sweet and honest sort of man that just wants to be a one woman man. He's not like the normal womanizing athletes that always seem to be portrayed in the romance books. He's a "boring" (his words) athlete that likes to get

Puck Money is the fourth installment in Brit DeMille's highly addictive and entertaining sports romance series Vegas Crush. I truly enjoy reading this genre, especially hockey books. Although I'm hands down no expert in this field I always enjoy watching the hulky, tough and sexy players fall in love with fierce, beautiful and smart women. I was sold on the blurb as soon as I saw that there are going to be some sexy Harry Potter readings. My romantic heart and nerdy mind were ecstatic.

Book 4 in the Vegas Crush series. Once again this story can be read and enjoyed as a standalone.
Boris and Natalia’s story is a heartfelt, funny and swoony story between a hot Russian hockey player and brainy, beautiful and sassy Talia.
Working together to help his finances these 2 opposites realize there’s more to them. As they struggle to fight their sexual tension what develops is a swoony and delicious read.
Their chemistry was undeniable. Their banter was snarky and adorable.

Boris is a professional hockey player who isn’t interested in the social aspect that goes along with it. What he really wants is to fall in love and have a family, but it hasn’t happened yet. When he needs a second opinion regarding his investments the team suggest that he meets Talia and from their first meeting he knows that she has been the one he has looking for.

Talia is very book smart but the same can’t be said when it comes to her judgment with men. After her last relationship she is very

Boris is my favorite! Oh, what a swoon fest Puck Money is and Talia she a firecracker and a half.

I gobble up hockey romance and I have to say that I fell for Boris and Talia right off the bat. Boris is the gentle giant and Talia is a guy's girl as she has no problems with eating or telling people what she thinks. The two have an instant connection and you can cut the sexual tension with a knife. But Talia is starting over after an affair with a client in San Francisco that went wrong and so eve

This is the story of Boris and Natalia, and this might just be my favorite book so far. The chemistry between these two is amazing. I truly loved Boris who calls himself boring, since he is not a hard partying jock. And Talia, she is smart book nerd with a foul mouth an affinity for big meals and a klutz but so l

I really could identified myself with her eating habits :D The hero was gentle giant with heart on the right place. And Lulu, was adorable plus in the mix. I laughed many times during the reading and was so touched with the sweetness of Boris. And Tyler intervention was unforgettable.

Pretty interesting story. I loved the idea of investing sports career money as a career for our female lead with a pretty straight laced personality .

They accomplish getting him set up with new accounts and a PA. Then the Russians come along.

My review is for an ARC of Puck Money.

Raine Miller has cured my dislike of the sport trope in romance books. If you like this trope do yourself a favor and get this book.

Add in the fact that the hero is Russian and the heroine is nerdy I’m in romance heaven.

Boris has become my new BBF, I absolutely adored him, Talia is perfect for him. They seem to bring out the best in each other.

Good pace, with the right amount of mystery and a slow burn that explodes into levels of hot that had me fanning

Vegas Crush, the hockey love story series, has quickly risen to the top tier of my Favorite Series List. These stories are fun-filled, fast-moving, intense, and extremely engaging, much like the game of hockey, itself. There is also enough heat in these stories to warrant a time out in the sin bin.

Puck Money, the fourth installment of the series is by far Raine Miller's finest offering. She has fully embraced her Brit DeMille persona and set her free to adorn these pages with a story that

Ohhhhhhhh Boris! My gosh! This one has to be one of the most unique male characters I’ve come across in my reading and I can’t thank Brit DeMille enough! He is a character that really tugged at my heart strings because he isn’t what we romance readers typically encounter in our reading. He really wants to live a life that includes a special person. You see that he’s not your run-of-mill “ladies man” or “player”. I really took a special liking (loving, really) to Boris.

And Talia, well, she a girl

Raine Miller has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop, because now she writes them too! Granted Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking, a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion.
