Publisher Description

A red hot Standalone romantic comedy from USA Today Bestseller Lili Valente…

"You're going to be a daddy."


Looking up into Alexi Petrov’s dark eyes as I break the news, I’m scared out of my mind. This man is the most terrifying defender in the NHL, and if it weren't for my sporty new baby bump, I probably wouldn't believe we hooked up that night. (Yes, I’ve sworn off margaritas for life.)


But the Alexi who goes to my doctor appointments, moves me into his guesthouse, and cooks me so many gourmet meals I look like I'm carrying twins? He isn’t scary at all.


He’s sweet. And intense. And so sexy I want to smear him with honey and lick it off every inch of his powerful, protective, oh-so-swoony-worthy body.


But that’s not a part of our relationship anymore. We’re friends who intend to raise a child together. That’s all…






There’s no way I can be just friends with Amanda Esposito.


She’s everything I want in a woman—strong, sexy, compassionate, a little bit wild—with curves for miles and a smile she smiles just for me. 

But no matter how much I want her, I don’t know if I’ve got what it takes to be that guy—the one with his heart on his sleeve. I learned the hard way that love can get real ugly, real fast. 

But when my new family is threatened, I realize how much I want this woman and our baby in my life for the long haul, and how hard I’m willing to fight for them. 

They say I’m a dangerous man to cross on the ice, but they haven’t seen anything yet…

Puck Me Baby

Lili just keeps writing the best books that I cannot put down!! At first when all the Russian proverbs start I wasn't too sure and then the love story started. Once that happened I was glued to this book!! Amanda "Mandy" and Alexi are in for a ride of their life! Ups, downs, and all around but the ups win! These hockey men are irresistible and hot as can be with a love for their family!

I Love This Couple

After a crazy night of margaritas and dancing Amanda makes the risky decision to go home with the sexy, mysterious man who caught her eye. They spend an incredible night together but before things have a chance to get awkward Amanda sneaks off, without ever getting his name.

Fast forward to a few months later at her best friend's wedding, where her sexy one night stand just happens to be friends and teammates with the groom. Now Amanda has no choice but to face him and let him know the exciting news...she's pregnant and he's the father.

Alexi Petrov is known for being the most terrifying defender in the NHL but when he finds out about Amanda and the baby he becomes the world's biggest softie. All of his protective instincts kick in and he insists she move into his guest house where he can help her out and keep her safe. And maybe with enough time, convince her to give him a real chance at a relationship.

I loved everything about these two and how their relationship develops. Watching Alexi faces his fears and take care of Amanda is so sweet and heartfelt. They are a perfect couple and fit in wonderfully with the Bad Motherpuckers series.
