Review: I Pucking Love You by Pippa Grant


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.
Clumsy sometimes fits, but then, that’s true for all of us, right? But adorable? No. Misunderstood? Nope again. I’m just your average girl, standing in front of a funeral invitation, asking it to be a winning lottery ticket instead.

And I don’t have a brother, or a best friend with a brother available, which means I’m stuck with Tyler Jaeger.

Sure, he’s a professional hockey player who also knows advanced calculus, but let’s say we’re not compatible and leave it at that. I should know. I am a matchmaker.

Not a very good one, but that’s beside the point.

I know a mismatch when I see one.

Still, Tyler’s what I’ve got, and I am not going to this funeral solo, so he’s what I’ll take.

After all—what could go wrong at a funeral?


My opinion:

I Pucking Love You by Pippa Grant is a Sports Romance. It’s the Fifth book from The Copper Valley Thrusters series.

Tyler Jaeger was a professional hockey player for the Thrusters. Muffy Periwinkle worked at Cod Pieces by night and run a terrible matchmaking service called Muff Matchers during the day. For the last year, they tried to be friends but after a quicky at the bunny club, they ghosted each other. A few years ago Muffy dropped out of college because of an embarrassing incident. Now she had to go back to that place so she
could support her best friend at her father’s funeral. But she couldn’t face all those people alone, that’s why she asked her cousin to find her a date. Tyler offered to accompany her and since he was her only option she accepted. That trip was about to change everything between them. They had their awkward moments, some quite hilarious and steamy ones. For Tyler, she was the sexiest and most interesting woman on the planet and he hated it when people made condescending comments about her. That’s how he ended up «kidnapping» her and realizing that after all he wanted to be in a relationship but only with his Muffy.

It’s one of the most surreal books I have ever read. It’s written from a dual pov, it has a great storyline that takes place in only a few days. It is solely focused on the romantic relationship between the two of them. I loved how the importance of family and friendship is showcasing and that everyone deserves love despite society’s standards. It’s such a sweet and funny story but also a very hot one. The scene on the shower is my favorite. The characters are incredible, especially Muffy. She is such a klutz with her weird cat and her heart of gold. Tyler seemed like a nice guy, even though he was supposed to be a «player», he was kind and supportive of her, a true gentleman.

All in all, this is a great and very entertaining book that I highly recommend. I will rate it with 4.5 stars.
