Blurb

He’s the biggest, baddest, most spider-fearing motherpucker on the ice…

When you’re named after the king of the gods, the world expects certain things of you.

Tough? Damn right.

Smart? Don’t let the hockey uniform fool you.

Large and in charge? Honey, I’m the biggest, baddest, mother pucking-est machine to ever own the ice. I shoot. I score. In and out of the rink. I don’t come early, but I come often, if you know what I mean. And I always leave the ladies wanting more.

Until that chick last night.

I’m no one-thrust wonder, and you’re damn right I’m going to prove to her I can do better. But every time I think I’m finally on my way back into her pants, she one-ups and out-balls me.

I should cut my losses, lick my wounds, and walk away.

But Zeus Berger doesn’t walk away from anything.

Especially when she's the only woman in the world who might be able to handle me.



The Pilot and the Puck-Up is a standalone romantic comedy featuring a hockey player whose ego is the only thing bigger than his shoe size, the most badass woman to ever fly a plane, rubber chockey (don't ask), and no cheating or cliffhangers.

Excerpt

Zeus Berger (aka the biggest, baddest, most spider-fearing mother pucker to ever play in the NHL)

Coconuts are itchy. I should’ve gone for the watermelons.
But it was a bitch and a half getting that last-minute private fitting at Madame Cosette’s anyway, and the woman probably would’ve had to stitch three bras together and then nailed the damn contraption to my shoulders to get it to hold without losing a melon, so coconuts it is.
Besides, it’s the heels that are gonna be the bigger problem. Damn good thing I have ankles of fucking steel.
And my minidress is stretched to max capacity over the coconuts anyway. It’s also in danger of showing my other coconuts, if you catch my drift. And there’s definitely a drift—or is that a draft?—on my other coconuts.
A wolf whistle echoes through the swanky private clubhouse where I’m strolling in with my twin brother on my left and my brother from another mother on my right. A passing server drops a tray of champagne. Conversation stops. And a bunch of stuffy golf pricks gape at us like we’re a mutant alien circus freak show crashing their million-dollar wedding reception.
We’re three dudes who have more money than God, more muscles than all the Kardashians’ bodyguards combined, and more fun than cotton candy and roller coasters.






My Thoughts

This book was just what I needed! Plenty of laughs and romance from a couple who are eerily similar in many ways. And, Pippa uses the word outlandish. I love that word.
Zeus knows people think he’s too big, too egotistical and just too much all round. He knows people see Zeus the hockey player and not Zeus the real person. And he’s tired of it.

Joey "Fireball" Diamonte may not be physically on par with Zeus but she matches him in ego, wit, toughness, and appetite. But in some cases it’s still a man’s world and Joey’s brand of aggressiveness leaves her at a disadvantage.

When Zeus and Joey get together, it’s explosive. Their banter, teasing and jokes are a lot of fun but it masks the vulnerability they both keep hidden under their tough skins. In the end they are both lonely and looking for love.

Their rollercoaster of a relationship takes us on a wonderful ride. The book is definitely peppered with plenty of fun times but it’s the softer times between, the times when they open up to each other that put the ‘r’ in this romance.

I cannot wait for the next book. Oh, and do yourself a favour and sign up for Pippa’s newsletters. They’re as funny as her books.
