Pucking Fantastic!

Oh Alley Ciz, I bow down to your evil genius.

Here you go again putting my heart through the motions.

Jake, Gage, Vince, and now Jase!? WHEW. Just how is a girl to choose??

I know I say this every time I’m introduced to a new guy but hot zayum, Jase takes the cake and I’m not so sure he can be topped (Sorry, not sorry DL Gallie). I have two words for you: TONGUE RING, nuff said!

This story...I mean where do I start? It’s like coming home.
The texts, the Coven conversations,

A wonderful, feel good romance. In my opinion the best yet from this author!! Join the crew from the BTU in their next rom-com story. I can't wait to see what's next from this amazing young author!

Pucking hell! Alley has done it again! Another fantastic addition to the BTU series. I cannot get enough of these characters.
The humour, the steam, the storyline... this book is BRILLIANT!
Not only do you get to see all of your fave characters again, but we are introduced to more too. This world just keeps getting better and better. Where is BTU? I need to go!
If you haven't started this series yet, believe me, you need to!

This is book 4 in the BTU Alumni Series. This story can be read as a standalone or if you want to get the full BTU experience it is highly reccomended to read the books in order.

Jason 'Jase' Donnelly is a sexy as puck NHL hockey player for The Storm who one night meets Melody a gorgeous pink haired Broadway star who he instantly becomes enamoured with only problem is she just so happens to be a Bruisers fan, his rival team and wants nothing to do with him or the reputation she's heard

It's no secret I love all things Covenettes. They are such an awesome group of friends and family. But I have this issue that once I pick up one of these books I am so completely immersed in their world which is great except for my damn family being so needy and trying to talk to me.

I was so excited to get Jase's book. I feel like he has been so firmly entwined in the previous stories while still being in the background. But he's one of those larger than life characters that stood out even as a

One thing is clear. I never stood a chance against Jase Donnelly.”

Ain’t that the truth! Jase Donnelly shocked the hell out of me. I wasn’t expecting his humour, his passion and his damn filthy mouth! Gahhhhh Jase was just perfect and I love him.

I was seconds away from taking you right there.

Puck Performance is part of the BTU series and can be read as a stand alone but for ultimate enjoyment you should read from the start of the series.

What a Pucking great read!! I loved Jase and Melody’s story! Let’s discuss the writing for a moment; Alley Ciz is one of only a few authors that can get me to read a book in the third person and love it…well, this book is in the first person with dual POV and she nailed it! The story flowed beautifully with lots of laugh out loud moments and some hot, steamy, swoon worthy moments.

To finally see Jase fall in love was everything! He met his match with Melody. Jase is his usual charming,

The infinite, geniune, absolutely undeniable love residing inside this book, pours right out of its pages and pulls at all of your heart strings.

And Im not only speaking of Jase and Melody, I'm talking about every single character you get introduced to.

This is one of the many reasons I keep coming back for more of Alley Ciz's books.

The close connection between this slighty crazy, beyond hilarious, always caring and sometimes overly insightful group of people is out of this world.

Puck Performance is everything you could ask for in a sports romance! Not only do you get all the action and athletics you expect from the genre, but author Alley Ciz effortlessly delivers humor, conflict, angst, squad goals, AND the romance and delicious heat you crave. Puck Performance will have you laughing, swooning, ready to throw your kindle, and enjoying the burn.

If you enjoy a book that makes you laugh, wanna cry, and a book hangover you'll feel for days, then the BTU series by Alley Ciz

I was given an advance readers copy of this book and have decided to write a voluntary honest review. I beta read this book for Alley and I loved everything second of it. I've been crazy about Jase from power play and then I became even more obessed in Rocky book. I just love Jase very much and I knew the girl who would steal his heart had to be to my liking. Jase is one amazing incredible guy. I also kind of sort of fell for Natry I know it's crazy but it happened. I hope he gets a story as ...more

OH MY STARS… Alley did not PUCK around with the fourth book in the BTU Alumni series. She brought her A-game when writing Jase and Melody's story. If you've read the other books in her series you'll know that she definitely needed to bring a female in that can handle Jase, as well as be fierce enough to handle the Coven and all their cray-cray. Melody seamlessly joined the rest of the amazing BTU ladies and brought along some of her own crazy ladies. I'm so loved reading how Jase's

And another one down, another one down, another one bites the dust!! Ever so cocky Jase had met his match in the form of a beautiful pink haired sassy girl. I am so in love with these characters (all of them) & the friendly banter is perfect! Jase, the guy we think will forever be the bachelor sure can be charming & selfless when he chooses to. The chemistry, the flirting, the beautifully written love story was perfect. I just can’t get enough of them all, but is was so entertaining to ...more

Standing Ovation for Alley Ciz in Puck Performance.
We met Jase in the very first BTU alumni novel and I fell in love with his protectiveness from the start. He named the Coven and is the twin brother of the OG convenette, but even he's not safe from the coven conversations. This book held me captive from the moment I read the prologue. When Alley hinted at a secret Melody was keeping, I couldn't stop reading and I had to know. With that in mind, I read through this book in one day. Along my

I was honoured to get an advance copy of this book and this is my honest review. This is part of a series, and you can read this as a stand alone but you will get more enjoyment from the characters if you have read - Power Play, Tap Out & Sweet Victory.

Wow! If I could give this more than 5 I would! Alley Ciz just keeps knocking these hits into the back of the Ice Hockey net!

As soon as you start reading this book you'll be laughing because Alley's characters have an amazing flair for insults

Good gosh I love this series! The friendships among this tribe are second to none which just adds to the story of Jase and Melody. Jase is an over grown kid one minute and an alpha male the next and I couldn’t love him more. A hockey player and a Broadway actress shouldn’t work but they absolutely do. I love Jase and Melody more than potatoes....and that’s saying a lot (you’ll get the potato reference once you read the book)

I swear each of Alley’s books has been my favorite, until I read her next one. But, Jase and Melody will be nearly impossible to match let alone top. Jase has been swoon worthy since he was introduced in Power Play- as a big brother he was just amazing, then in Tap Out he was an amazing bestie. I worried whether I anyone was going to be enough to deserve this special guy. The heroine He falls in love with is just so perfect. She’s strong, sarcastic, yet sweet and vulnerable at times too.

Another fantastic addition to the BTU series by Alley! I absolutely loved Jase and Melody. I had a big smile on my face as I was reading this book and a very late night as I just couldn't put it down! The text conversations always make me laugh so much! Now I loved Jase but at one point in the book I was not happy with him but thankfully he redeemed himself pretty quickly! I loved the addition of the new characters and it's always fun catching up with the crew. Really looking forward to the next ...more

Alley Ciz has done it again! BTU #4 is now my favorite of the BTU series!! I absolutely love Jase & Melody’s story. From the beginning it captured my attention & had me hook, line & sinker the entire way through. It had me laughing & swooning throughout the whole book. I’m already so excited to read #5 but Jase & Melody are going to be hard to beat; but then again, it’s Alley! ;)

OMG! I am completely in love with this book! This is officially my favorite book by Alley Ciz so far! The story was perfection!

Melody Brightly is an actress on Broadway! She has pink hair (twinsies)! She’s also a huge fan of hockey. Jase Donnelly is a a hot motherpucker, a hockey player and a smooth talker with a tongue ring! *Swoon*

Alley seriously rocked this book. I laughed so many times! I think the Coven messages are my fav. Every time I think one of Alley’s guys are my favorite, she hits

I have been waiting for my man Jase's book and Alley did not disappoint with Puck Performance.
It is an amazing read, it had me engrossed from page one and she kept me guessing with what the big secret was and when it was revealed, I was shocked but in a good way.
As usual, the covenettes steal the show with their text messages and antics, leaving you laughing and shaking your head with what they get up to. Actually, the whole BTU gang do this. I seriously want to be friends with these guys in

You just had to introduce a new covenette that I now love more than the rest? I didn't think it was possible!

Jace sure had his work cut out for him. Mels was never going to make it easy on him! But their willingness to fight for each other = HEA.

The perfect balance of Humour, Drama and cheesy *swoonworthy* romance (and potatoes!), this is quite possibly my favourite btu book so far.

Book 4 in the BTU Alumni series and a great addition to the series. Jase and Melody were so good together. The chemistry and attraction that was between them was so intense. It was so much fun getting able to catch back up with the Coven. Loved this story and with each book, you are always able to find a great guy to fall in love with just like the heroines do. You are never disappointed when you are finished with this story. I can’t wait to see what is next for the BTU group.

I love when a book is fun to read. I smile from the first page until the end of the last page. I laugh out loud more than once and occasionally get questioned by my hubby about what has that look on my face. Pure entertainment is that look on my face!
Puck Performance is the fourth book in the BTU Alumni series. I loved the first three books in this series. I’ve ended each book thinking it can’t get any better. They are each fantastically entertaining, but this book just surpassed them. I loved

Well “ Puck Me” ..... Alley Ciz just gets steamier, more whitty, and has converted me into a Ice Hockey follower.
I’m just under a year and 4 books later, I feel like I have a new family in the BTU series.
This time it’s about Jase Donnelly the other half of the Donnelly twins, smart funny, plays defence fir his team and nit afraid of a bit of biff on the ice and instagram arguing with the opposition players
Then he see’s a flash of pink hair belonging to a young woman in the oppositions jumper

OMG, THIS BOOK IS AH-MA-ZING! When you start this book, you will not want to put it down. I cried and laughed through out this book. I loved that movie and tv references as well. So with Puck Performance being about Jase Donelly, I was surprised to fell all the emotions coming out of this book. I literally am emotionally wrecked and may need to get some counseling from the Covennettes after this. I have read books about guys being all dark, broody and non emotionally. However, Jase is not that ...more

Alley truly out did herself with this book and I will say in my opinion that it is the best one yet and each book in this series gets better and better. Puck Performance is book number 4 in the BTU World and it is about a sexy hockey player and a Broadway super star. We meet Jase and Melody briefly in the bonus epilogue of Sweet Victory which is Vince and Holly's story. Jase Donnelly is a defensive NHL hockey player for the Storm and Melody is a Broadway super star in her own way but yet she has ...more

Jase Donnelly is one Hot Potato! A Pure Puck Romance!

This is a Five Star Romance as it has all the makings for a perfect recipe. Recipe includes: all the feels, slow romance, steamy hot hockey player, beautiful and talented Broadway star, crazy nutty friends. I absolutely love this book! From the moment Jase Donnelly meets firecracker Melody Brightly the smoldering tension in the air is enough to melt the ice. This book made me laugh out loud, cry a little, and most certainly made me fall in

And yet another man has bowed down to the Coven.

Alley Ciz has done it again with Puck Performance, the fourth in the BTU series.

What I loved:

Jase Donnelly. This man is ridiculous in all the best ways. From his humor, his sarcasm, his never-ending wit, his persistence, and his stubbornness. I loved everything about him. Especially the tongue ring, because… duh.

Melody Brightly. I love that she is strong, opinionated, and can keep up with the crazy of the Coven and the family.

Alley Ciz delivers a wickedly hot and funny new book with Puck Performance (BTU Alumni #4). This book is part of a series but can be read as a stand-alone read (though you'll want to go back and read the other books because you'll want to know more).

Jase and Mels story is a fun combination of a sports/instant attraction but slow burn romance with a lot of crazy family/friends interaction. These two characters chemistry is inferno hot and when you add in the craziness of both their friends/family
