The Book Review Express Review Corner brings you
“Royally Pucked” from Pippa Grant. (review below)
A hockey-playing prince, a most improper lady, and one accidental pregnancy…
When you’re an heir so spare that getting attacked by a shark is more likely than you ever wearing the crown, you’re only allowed certain liberties. Yet still, those liberties can bite you in the ass.
Good thing I’m such a charming devil.
Even then, I’ve been banished to America for a year under the pretense of playing professional hockey while my father cleans up my latest mess. But trouble follows me wherever I go. Generally trouble of the beautiful female variety, and Gracie Diamonte is no exception. Or possibly, she’s the best exception.
Until the dinosaur suit. The cookie incident. And the accidental pregnancy.
Of course I’ll do the right thing.
Just as soon as I solve that pesky problem of my royal betrothal.
I’m about to be the biggest scandal to rock my country and there’s a good chance my father may throw me to the sharks after all. The funny thing is I’ve heard that raising children may not be so different from swimming with the sharks. So no matter how you look at things I am Royally Pucked.
Royally Pucked is a hilariously wrong romance between a spare heir and the lady least likely to ever wear a princess crown, complete with dirty cookies, an emotional support monkey, and lots of pucking around. This romantic comedy stands alone with no cheating, cliffhangers and ends happily with a family of…more than two.
What a great RomCom. The banter between the hockey playing Prince and the cookie baker from Goat’s Tit, Alabama is a just great. The author has written a funny storyline with perfect characters for the pets but trust me when I say it’s not all laughter and sunny days for sure.
Prince Manning is the Royal Family’s trouble child. He is always embarrassing his father the King and his knocking-up Gracie, the cookie baker, is not going to sit well. But Manning wants Gracie and the baby and not the life his family has planned out for him. As for Gracie, she doesn’t think she is good enough for the Prince and sets out to convince Manning she wants to raise the baby alone. But when the when the Royal Family arrives and families meet. Gracie decided to fight for herself and her man.
Does it work? Can Manning and Gracie find a way to be together and by the time all is said and done do they even want to be together or will they just co-parent across the miles? I thoroughly enjoyed this book and Ms Grant has truly written a dandy in my humble opinion. I highly recommend grabbing Royally Pucked today; you won’t be sorry you did.
Pippa Grant is a stay-at-home mom and housewife who loves to escape into sexy, funny stories way more than she likes perpetually cleaning toothpaste out of sinks and off toilet handles. When she’s not reading, writing, sleeping, or trying to prepare her adorable demon spawn to be productive members of society, she’s fantasizing about chocolate chip cookies.
