I Pucking Love You (The Copper Valley Thrusters #5) - Pippa Grant


I Pucking Love You

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?

I Pucking Love You is a hilariously wrong romantic comedy about the world’s worst matchmaker, a hockey player with a problem he doesn’t want to talk about, and an awkward date-of-convenience that everyone would prefer to forget. It comes complete with a cat working his way through his nine lives, all the sexy times, fish and chips, and a swoony happily-ever-after.

Tyler Jaeger, aka a dude in total and absolute hell



There are two chicks in this room. When Sparkle Hair invited me to sneak away from the bunny bar and upstairs to her friend’s apartment, I thought we’d be playing hide-the-salami in the slam-bam-thank-you-ma’am kind of way.

All the makings of a good night. This should be heaven.

But Sparkle Hair is smiling a pouty smile and pulling me to the king bed in the bedroom adorned with Thrusters mementos where her friend, let’s call her Super Tits, is reclining on her side and petting the black sheet under the Thrusters comforter while the Rocky theme song plays softly in the background. “Oooh, you found a rough one,” she purrs, pushing her cleavage out.

I pinch myself, and it hurts.

Not a dream.

This is actually happening.

I thought I was picking up a puck bunny who can quote Aristotle for the night, and instead, I’m getting the Wrigley’s Doublemint package.

Double the pleasure.

Double the fun.

Except for the part where my dick has died and is hanging in my pants like limp roadkill.

C’mon, Jaeger. Get it up. Get. It. Up.

“What’s wrong, baby doll?” Sparkle Hair presses her boob to my arm. “Surprised?”

“In the best way,” I croak out.

Super Tits climbs across the bed to press her boob against my other arm. “Have you ever had two chicks at once?”

Work, Wonder-Wood. Please work. “Ladies, all I care about is here and now. And here—” I wiggle my brows at Sparkle Hair “—and now—” I make kissy lips at Super Tits “—is my favorite place to be.”

Sparkle Hair’s hand drifts up my thigh. “Athena, he knows differential equations.”

“Oh, god, that’s so hot.” Super Tits slides her knee over mine. “We only double up on the smart guys. Do you know why you should never talk to pi?”

Dammit. I love the smart bunnies. “Because he’ll go on forever.”

“Oh my god, I think I just came.” We’re all still clothed. Super Tits—Athena, apparently—is riding my thigh, her head thrown back. Sparkle Hair is doing a thing to my ear that would usually have me hard as marble while she plays with the button on my jeans.

But my dick yawns and rolls over.


I wish I could say it was fear that one of my teammates would catch us and kick my ass for being out past curfew, but let’s be real.

I’m the youngest of six.

Pissing people off by doing what I want is what I do best. If I want to screw around with two bunnies when I’m supposed to be heading home after a game, I’m gonna screw around with two bunnies.

Curfew doesn’t help my game. Breaking it
