Ah, rom com is always at it’s best when in the hands of the master, Pippa Grant. With every release I think she can’t top it, then…she does.
I Pucking Love You picks up shortly after the end of Charming as Puck (have you read this? If not, you should!) This is part of the Copper Valley Thrusters Series. Each book in the series is a stand alone.
I Pucking Love You is Tyler Jaeger and Muffy Periwinkle’s story. Muffy runs a dubious dating service (In her defense, she’s new to it), but is also a recent medical school drop out, because of-situation. Muffy is very likable as a character, she lives with her Mom, Hilda, who is, for lack of a better descriptor, a cougar. I kind of knew Hilda was hot to trot, but, I actually didn’t realize she treated Muffy as she did; I felt bad for liking Hilda in Charming as Puck. Hilda seems to put Muffy down quite a bit and that’s normally about her appearance, so that’s pretty harsh.
This book has some pieces of things I love, there’s a little forced proximity, kind of not-a-virgin, a protective hero who lifts his girl’s confidence and, of course, professional hockey.
The rom com scenes are classic physical comedy and very on brand for Pippa Grant. These always make me cackle in a 13 year old boy kind of way.
Bottom line, Pippa Grant’s books make me happy and we can all use some happiness. Pippa Grant is very clear that her mission is to spread happiness and she does with a lot of heart and a side of funny.
I do want to point out I’m a volunteer administrator for Pippa Grant’s author readers group, The Pipsquad. That being said, I don’t have a close relationship with this author other than posting in her group, approving memberships, approving posts and huddling up with other admins and Pippa on group issues and book release stuff as it pertains to The Pipsquad; I do not get paid for helping/admining the author reader group. This is an unbiased review and is my own opinion of I Pucking Love You. #NewRelease #IPuckingLovePippaGrant
