Hosed Is Here!

Title: Hosed
Authors: Pippa Grant & Lili Valente
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy
 Release Date: January 15, 2019


The world's sexiest firefighter is about to get a second chance with the virgin next door…

He's bossy, arrogant, and so ridiculously hot he should come with a warning label and a pair of flame retardant coveralls.

He's also the boy who broke my heart when we were in high school.

I want to move in next door to Ryan O'Dell the way I want to be the virgin gamer geek suddenly in charge of running my sister's sex toy factory. Too bad both are written in my stars.

Yeah, I'm the world's oldest virgin code-writing nerd. 

And he's the world's hottest firefighter. 

And even though he intimidates the heck out of me, I can't seem to control my libido when he's around.

Where is my dignity? My self-respect? My panties?

Seriously…. Have you seen them? Anyone?

Maybe they're hiding in his bedroom. With my heart.

Yeah, I know. I'm hosed.  

So hosed.

Hosed is a steamy, fun romantic comedy between a firefighter and the virgin nerd next door, complete with a pet raccoon, scandalous gossip, and dildo football. (No, really.) This romance has no cheating or cliffhangers, and ends with a banging hot happily ever after.


My Review

The first couple of pages of this book quickly set the stage for this wonderfully wacky small town and had me spewing my drink, snort laughing, and needing the Heimlich, or as my dear, departed uncle used to say, “Give her the hemlock!” I swear, this book needs a warning, not only about the combination of spontaneous laughter while drinking and reading, but also the sore stomach muscles the next day. Who knew reading a book could result in core strengthening? 

Ladies, gentlemen, and fictional raccoon heroes, the world of rom-com has a new power couple. Pipli? Valant? Whatever their hybrid name, these two ladies make a heck of a team, bring tons of laughs, explosive heat and a big ol’ heap of heart. This book had me at “George,” because any book that makes a loveable, endearing hero of a pet raccoon that I like as much as the book's actual hero is a winner for me. 

So you're aware of my prejudice, I need to make a confession. I am soo over the worn-out, clichรฉ tropes like billionaires, fake marriages and virgins, but darn if these ladies didn’t sneak one in on me, and I LIKED it. Yes, Cassie is still securely in possession of her V card, which is completely at odds with her moving home to take over her sister's sex toy company in the small town of Happy Cat, GA. And the sexy firefighter she butts heads with when his crew responds to a call at her factory? Turns out he's also her neighbor, but they have a little ancient history to work through before they can get on with the business of being “neighborly.” 

I adored this wild and wacky small town with all of its colorful characters who, although they keep the gossip mill going also step up for their friends when needed. Even the premise is great: Cassie’s sister, Savannah, catches her husband defiling a sheep (yes, you read that right) and escapes the madness and gossip by heading to Europe, leaving her sex toy company in the hands of her innocent, nerdy, programmer sister. Then there's the raccoon, George, who has strong opinions and doesn’t hesitate to share them. If you’re in the mood for some delightful craziness, gut-busting humor, crackling chemistry, a new favorite four-legged hero and an abundance of heartwarming feels, you definitely won’t want to miss this one!
