Thank you for the awesome read. I couldn't put it down. The fight between what your mind says versus what reality is came through!
More Badgers - 5+++++ stars
A Review of Puck Aholic by Lili Valente
More Badgers - 5+++++ stars
Another book in the NHL Series about the Seattle Badgers. This time we get a look at the rookie, Nowicki and get to learn more about him and why he is so terrified of mannequins. We got to learn a little bit about him in Brendan and Laura's book and we also got to meet Diana in that book since she is Brendan's little sister and Chloe's aunt. I have to admit, there were a few times throughout the book that I wasn't so sure that I really liked Diana. I love her quirks, but just some of the ways that she treated Tanner were a little off-putting for me. She is definitely one of a kind, which I appreciate and I was really happy that she was able to help Nowicki with some of his issues.
Now, I am really looking forward to Petrov and Mandy's story and the issues they will have to face, especially since he has had such a disastrous outcome in his last relationship. Ms. Valente writes such strong characters that you either love them or hate them or grow to love them and they feel like family. You definitely don't want to miss this one!

Love, humor, trust
Puck Aholic has become one of my favorite books this year. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. Lili Valente has this ability to use words in a way that makes you swoom, cry, laugh, and right out scream. Ha ha.... Just an amazing read.
Tanner is the sweet, hot rookie hockey player who has been working his butt off to impress his team. Diana is Tanner's teammate's sister. She has sworn off love since she hasn't has the best of luck in her love life. She was also stupid letting 'THE ONE" get away. A night of no names and innocent hook-up leads to Tanner and Diana thinking about their nameless hook-up. So when Tanner opens the door to welcome his new roommate, to his surprise it's his no name hook-up from the night before. Since Diana is a BIG NO NO, Tanner tries everything in his power to keep it on a friend's level, but it is so hard. Diana doesn't like Tanner at first, thinks he has the worst attitude. But as time passes and they each help the other get over their fears, Diana and Tanner give into their desires and see each other for who they really are. Tanner knows that Diana is it for him and he needs to find a way to convince Diana that he is it for her, but her fears are holding her back. Can Tanner and Diana have a real relationship? What will happen when Diana's brother finds out about them?
Lili Valente never disappoints and Puck Aholic was one off her top knotches. Great read and I highly recommend it!
Review: Bad Motherpuckers 3: Puck Aholic
Puck Aholic by Lili Valente is the third book in her latest series, Bad Motherpuckers . I would like to say that each book I read by this author becomes my new favorite EXCEPT that takes some of the magic away from the previous books. The way each story just flows so naturally off the page and into your brain. The dual POV's are seamless, the story never has a disjointed moment and the secondary characters are equally amazing. The sex is hot, the story funny and romantic, the ending happy. I can't ask for more, well, from the story - I definitely want more books by Lili!!!
Diana is one of the quirkier characters but is absolutely adorable. Her issues with commitment and relationships is a battle we see unfold over the length of the story. It's a learning process for her that, with the help of her close friend, Amanda, she begins to come to terms with.
Tanner is by far one of the sweetest alpha's I have ever read. He is strong and tough but so sweet and caring and never once a hot-head. It was a refreshing change. I mean, I like the hot-headed alpha's too, but not ALL THE TIME.
This story was a fun, flirty, heartfelt read and I absolutely LOVED it! Enjoy!
Ohhhh puck that was a great read.
Tanner is a cocky rookie who has a soft spot for a sweet little swine called Wanda.
Diana is sassy pants gal who is not looking for ice time with Tanner.
When these two have a not so serious discussion about killer mermaids they could not have known what the future held for them.
Then Wanda done got in the middle of them and all hell broke lose.
Once Wanda was under control they finally had time to explore the steam attraction they had for each other. Mind blowing sex was def on the agenda for them. That Tanner really knows how to please a gal.

Sexy and hilarious. I want a Tanner of my own!
By Kara Hildebrand
Puck Aholic, by the wonderfully, talented and hilarious Lili Valente, is the third book in the Bad Motherpuckers series. Lili is one of my go-to-authors. I know everything she writes is going to be fantastic. She's quickly become one of the best writers of romantic comedy. I love all of her books, but this hockey series is top notch! We've met Tanner before. He has a hilarious phobia that I'm still laughing about. He's also sexy, gentle, kind, funny, romantic, muscle-y, dirty mouthed and swoonworthy. In a nutshell, he's my favorite character of 2017 who I wish were real. He's the perfect specimen. He's not a jerk. He's not a douche and he's not a player. He's perfection. He's paired with the hilarious, quirky, hot mess, Diana(Brendan's sister). She's new to town and she's had very bad luck with men. She's wildly attracted to her sexy, hockey playing roommate, but acting on it is a big mistake. But, the more she gets to know him and sees that he's really a genuinely nice guy, her defenses are blown. She needs to climb him like a tree. Be up against every surface in their house and be under him at every chance she can get. Can Diana get out of her own way and trust that Tanner is real? Will Tanner let the best thing that's ever happened to him get away? I loved this story! I laughed, teared up, got hot and bothered and laughed some more. I can't get enough of this series or these characters. Bring on Petrov!
"So the pig is in love with you? Is that what you're saying?"
"The ladies love me, Diana. It's my cross to bear."
"This is sex, Tanner. Magical unicorn-p sex, and that's it." His dimples pop, and I laugh. I can't help it. "You look so proud of yourself."
"Well, it's not every day a guy learns he's got a magical unicorn pe."
I want her tight against me, her breath in my mouth, her heartbeat echoing in my chest, her skin hot against mine. I want her time and attention, her laughter and tears, her smarta jokes and thoughtful touches and way of saying my name like she's got a secret and can't wait to share it with me.
Lili Valente delightfully delivers once again!
By Singing Secretary
The brilliance of Lili Valente and her hockey hotties continues here in Puck Aholic. Once again, she has delivered a hot, sexy and fun romance which brings your funny bone to life (especially when Wanda is involved) as well as your libido and, of course, the fluttering of your heart. Tanner and Diana are an absolutely perfect match from the inception of this story and the sparks that fly between them as they find their way, whether they are bantering or rolling around together between the sheets, their connection is fantastically magical. Tanner absolutely exudes the epitome of sweetness and despite Diana’s struggle to see how genuine he truly is, he never seems to falter in his love and caring for her.
Ms. Valente always promises her readers a happily ever after, and she has once again delightfully delivered. Puck Aholic adds another amazingly sexy romance to this fantastic series. Ms. Valente has also included a little surprise at the end of Tanner and Diana’s story leaving me anxiously awaiting her next release in this electrifyingly hot series.
Sexy, hilarious, and so much fun!
By Sandra Two Book Pushers
Puck Aholic is the third book in the Bad Motherpuckers series by the very talented Lili Valente. Each book in the series can be read as standalone but there is a connection. A hockey team. Friends. Siblings. Puck Aholic is Tanner (rookie player) and Diana's (Brendan's sister/player) story...
Tanner just finished his rookie season. He had a great year but he needs to keep his focus if he wants to stay on the team. And that means no Summer flings. No commitments. It's been months since he has had anyone in his bed so he can do this. No problem. He isn't a one-night stand kinda guy anyway. He is a relationship guy. Then she shows up. A Beach Pixie that turns his life upside down with a kiss. She saved his life on the beach that night and now she is his new roomie. She also happens to be his team Captain's sister. This has complicated all over it. He should have told her no but he couldn't. He thought he could do this. Stay away from her. She is off-limits. She drives him insane. She doesn't want more than a f-. It should be easy to keep his distance, right?
Wrong. So very wrong. She knew it. Diana knew it when she saw him again. He seemed nice enough on the beach. Hot enough for sure. But that was all it could ever be. She swore off relationships when one after the other turned disastrous. Her luck in love was a bust. She thought she found the one but he was gone. And she was starting over. And now she was living with the man that heated her up while pissing her off. A pig that was jealous of her. And no job. She can do this. She can totally stay away from her hot roommate. Especially when she finds out he is not a friends with benefits type of guy. Who doesn't do that anyway? A good guy that she can't risk having.
Tanner and Diana's story is a roommates to lovers romance but it is different than others I have read. It's refreshing that Tanner is not a manwhore but a relationship guy. I do love a good manwhore, don't get me wrong. Ha. Anyway, the story is hilarious, sexy, and so much fun!! Tanner is swoon-worthy, dedicated, sweet, and one amazing dirty talker. Diana is all-round kick a-. She is independent, fun, and sexy. Together, they are crazy beautiful.
Overall...if you want a fun and sexy read then this book is for you! I love this series and it was great catching up with the previous characters and to get to know the ones that will be in the next book!
“Consider me cake, and you’re on a diet.”
“Cake,” I echo, scowling into her golden-brown eyes.
“And I’ll consider you the same.”
He’s a work of art, a thing of beauty I would feel compelled to photograph immediately if I weren’t so desperate to touch him, taste him, and feel his skin hot and hungry against mine.
“I think we’re going to get a high score,” I gasp against Tanner’s lips.
