About this ebook

"You're going to be a daddy."

Looking up into Alexi Petrov’s dark eyes as I break the news, I’m scared out of my mind. This man is the most terrifying defender in the NHL, and if it weren't for my sporty new baby bump, I probably wouldn't believe we hooked up that night. (Yes, I’ve sworn off margaritas for life.)

But the Alexi who goes to my doctor appointments, moves me into his guesthouse, and cooks me so many gourmet meals I look like I'm carrying twins? He isn’t scary at all.

He’s sweet. And intense. And so sexy I want to smear him with honey and lick it off every inch of his powerful, protective, oh-so-swoony-worthy body.

But that’s not a part of our relationship anymore. We’re friends who intend to raise a child together. That’s all…



There’s no way I can be just friends with Amanda Esposito.

She’s everything I want in a woman—strong, sexy, compassionate, a little bit wild—with curves for miles and a smile she smiles just for me.

But no matter how much I want her, I don’t know if I’ve got what it takes to be that guy—the one with his heart on his sleeve. I learned the hard way that love can get real ugly, real fast.

But when my new family is threatened, I realize how much I want this woman and our baby in my life for the long haul, and how hard I’m willing to fight for them.

They say I’m a dangerous man to cross on the ice, but they haven’t seen anything yet…

although the cover makes it look like a gay romance story it's not! it's a breeder story so be warned and don't get tricked into buying it just because it's got a gay guy on the cover.

Another winner by Lili Valente. If you haven't read about these yummy hockey players you're so missing out! This book has so much humor, heart, and heat. One of the biggest draws for me is the humor. I'm always left with a happy heart after finishing one of these hockey player books. This one one no different. I was instantly sucked into this book. Alexi and Amanda were fantastic. I was so engrossed into their story. They're so likable. Alexi, can't say enough good things about him. He has so many swoon worthy moments in this book. What made me instantly like him was his reaction to the news Amanda shares with him. His first swoon worthy moment. I can't recommend this book enough.

Amanda and Petrov showed us off chances that we get in live, that were supposed to take and not make the same mistake. Couldn't put it down, its a must read book. Lili like all your books love this one. Oh BTW the spider scene, I was laugh cause I was actually imagining it, and I was going to throw my phone reading it....lol

About the author

Author of over forty novels, USA Today Bestseller Lili Valente writes everything from steamy suspense to laugh-out-loud romantic comedies. A die-hard romantic and optimist at heart, she can’t resist a story where love wins big. Because love should always win.


When she’s not writing, Lili enjoys adventuring with her two sons, climbing on rocks, swimming too far from shore, and asking “why” an incorrigible number of times per day. A former yoga teacher, actor, and dancer, she is also very bendy and good at pretending innocence when caught investigating off-limits places.


You can currently find Lili in the mid-South, valiantly trying to resist the lure of all the places left to explore.


Lili also writes super naughty books as L. Valente.
