    Hosed is a sexy, sweet, fun, quirky, did I say sexy, rom-com by Pippa Grant and Lili Valente. I have read several of Pippa’s books and love them but this is my very first involving Lili Valente. If this is any example of what I’m in store for, there will definitely be more!Cassie Sunderwell is, in her own words, the world’s oldest virgin code-writing nerd. She grew up in Happy Cat, Georgia with her sister, Savannah and her parents but now she lives in San Francisco doing a job she loves, writing Hosed is a sexy, sweet, fun, quirky, did I say sexy, rom-com by Pippa Grant and Lili Valente. I have read several of Pippa’s books and love them but this is my very first involving Lili Valente. If this is any example of what I’m in store for, there will definitely be more!Cassie Sunderwell is, in her own words, the world’s oldest virgin code-writing nerd. She grew up in Happy Cat, Georgia with her sister, Savannah and her parents but now she lives in San Francisco doing a job she loves, writing code for apps. In high school she had a huge crush on the hottest guy in school, Ryan O’Dell. Without ever knowing how she felt, Ryan broke her heart. It’s been nine years since then. She’d like to think she was all over it. Well, maybe not!Cassie’s sister was running her dream company, Sunshine Sex Toys factory, which was, of course, right next to the town post office/taxidermy shop in Happy Cat, when she more or less went off the deep end which resulted from a terrible divorce. Savannah left the country on an extended trip leaving her sister in charge of her company. So yes, Cassie is back in Happy Cat, staying in her sister’s house, which happens to be right across the street from the boy, now very hot firefighter, Ryan. Ryan has lived in Happy Cat all his life. He lives with his pet raccoon, George Cooney. Ryan is the kind of guy who tries to take care of everyone, especially his three younger brothers, who I hope, hope, hope we might get to know better in future books! An emergency at the Sunshine Factory puts Ryan face to face with his new neighbor. He can’t believe she’s back! One look into her eyes and he’s lost. “Some risks are worth taking and Cassie is worth this roll of the dice and so much more.” Cassie and Ryan begin getting to know each other and their chemistry is immediately obvious to the both of them. Once they work out Cassie’s high school memories, they begin seeing each other. These two were so darn cute together. Ryan was so smitten with her and so patient. I couldn’t help but to fall in love with him a bit myself. At the same time, though, things are going wrong at the Sunshine Sex Toy Factory. Not everyone in town is thrilled to have a sex toy factory in their midst. Is someone sabotaging them? Evidence seems to point to Cassie and her sister and there are plenty in town that are quick to think the worst. “He could break me. So easily. But, he also makes me whole.”“I just want to be here, with him, this man who feels like home.” Cassie is trying so hard to save her sister’s business while she is away. At the same time, she is falling in love. Both she and Ryan feel like they have found that puzzle piece they never even knew was missing. This was so much fun. These two were adorable. Cassie’s safe, quiet life trying to not be seen in San Francisco is turned upside down in Happy Cat. The residents of this quirky little town are hilarious and adorable. This is one of those books that once you start reading, you don’t want to put it down. While I was reading, I realized I was smiling. How could I not? I definitely plan to look into Lili Valente’s work now. I don’t know if they plan on doing more books in Happy Cat, but I sure hope so. My fingers and toes are crossed that we get to know Ryan’s brothers better in future books.

    4 George Cooney StarsYou can't go wrong with a crazy pet raccoon, a hot fireman, a woman who manages a sex toy factory and a weirdo freak bad guy that likes sheep WAY too much! I really enjoyed this faced paced, laugh out loud small town romance. A great read when you need something light and a little sweet. Some of the funny scenes were a little over the top and unrealistic but still had me laughing my ass off!I loved George Cooney's bonus epilogue at the end.

I wish it was free like some of this author's other books. I might not download them in a rush to read - it's not the type of writing style or book that sinks its claws into me.

This was not that.The story is simple: small town hot firefighter meets the geeky girl he always liked from HS, who's back in town to help run her sister's sex toy factory while said sister is escaping her messed up life somewhere else. That's it folks. End of plot. Not a whole lot of emotional baggage for either of the MCs. Their childhood issue was easily resolved.Yes, there's a little on who set the fires to the sex toy shop, and toward the end the H does something stupid, is pretty quickly forgiven, after pretty quickly groveling for forgiveness. Not a whole lot of angst here, for which I am thankful. I like angst (when it relates to intense passion and love, etc.) but not for the hell of it.BTW, can I just say - firefighters are HOTT. Way hotter than policemen! Met a few up close and personal the other week. The young ones wouldn't know gentlemanly manners to save their life but they were cute (in an assholish kind of way). The seasoned one tho... hubba hubba! tanned, veins in the arms, steely gray hair... bet he knew his way around the bedroom... I did check out the left hand, didn't see a ring (not that one would wear the ring on the job, would one?) That definitely helped me like this book.So the whole book is a long-winded exchange of funny sound bites. Like the over-weight raccoon named George Cooney who likes to steal sex toys and wrap himself up in anal beads (which the h mistook for Xmas lights that didn't have a plug)I skipped over a lot of the sound bites, bc sometimes it got old. In my view, everything is sharpened when it comes in contrasts - bitter and sweet, funny and sad, love and hate. When a whole book is one long string of quips and silliness, I get a silly and sugar overload headache.So, I'd say 3.5 stars, rounded to 4 for the originality of the raccoon and anal beads.

    Rom/com,really not my go for romance,but I enjoy Lili Vcalente and thought to give this a try.The romance was sweet,and the comedy part was ok,I did chuckle a few times.George Clooney,the pet raccoon stole the book for me.There seems to be potential for 2 more books about the other brothers....but as my son likes to say....We'll see....I am thinking that rom/ com is not my thing.

Cassie and Ryan had history but once they got it sorted out things didn’t settle down like you might think. No, their sizzle blazed hot (thank goodness Ryan was a yummy fireman!) and was peppered with sweetness and laughter. They were both all about being real and their reality right now?

This was not a dark, serious book – the farthest from that you could get – yet there were still home truths that made their way sneakily (and entertainingly) into this one stop read…The characters, their story, were unique and funny without ever feeling over the top. Their conversations, the situations they found themselves in had me laughing through it all. Small town characters, sisterly texts, work complications (that had me ROFL) and an interesting pet (that everyone should experience) meant it was a great unique read!My favourite read of the year (so far, I’m hoping they will write more!). ~Diane, 5 "George Cooney" Stars

I didn’t feel like the chemistry between the main characters, but the funny dialogue saved the book for me.The best part of the book was how funny the town was. The side characters added a lot to the book, so much in fact, I think it outshined the main characters. In the end I guess that is okay because it made for an amusing audio read.I like Jacob Morgan’s voice a lot (this is Zachary Webber’s other name for steamier reads). He can read a bit fast for me at times, but I rather have a fast narrator than a slow one. Virginia Rose was not my cuppa. She didn’t sound like a twenty-something Heroine. I am really picky when it comes to female voices and I like them a little higher pitched and more youth-ful, however she didn’t take away from the read for me.The main reason I wanted to read this book was because the Heroine was a virgin, but to be honest this book was not steamy. Sure there was steam, but I was looking more for an erotic book and I got a simple chit-lit read. It’s another thing I have issues with naked men on covers, it’s very misleading for me. There wasn’t anything wrong with the characters persay. The Heroine was fun and her personality was out there. The Hero is typical and a nice decent guy. Like I said, I didn’t see the chemistry and there was hardly any foreplay or sexual tension (in my opinion). The side characters made the book for me. The Whole town was funny and I enjoyed the plot. I liked that the heroine worked at the dildo factory and to read about that stuff was just out loud funny.Anyhow, it was a decent read, but a little misleading for me.

And more importantly, can he step up and give his heart to the girl whose heart he unknowingly broke all those years ago?I absolutely loved Hosed!! It's witty, sexy and fun and Ryan and Cassie's chemistry is seriously hot. Thank God there's a firefighter around in case any of those sparks happen to catch fire 🔥 There's also a fabulous cast of secondary characters who give support and love to our couple. Some of whom help Ryan get his head out of his ass a time or two.

    3.5 Stars***This and other reviews can be found at www.imasweetandsassybookwhore.com ****ARC**Sigh* I am sitting on the fence with my thoughts about Hosed so I am just going to keep this review very short. On one hand it was a cute and funny romance, because if you know my sense of humor or me at all dildo football would so be something I would do. On the other hand, at times, it was over the top cheesy and I rolled my eyes more than once. I get that this one was supposed to be a combination of 3.5 Stars***This and other reviews can be found at www.imasweetandsassybookwhore.com ****ARC**Sigh* I am sitting on the fence with my thoughts about Hosed so I am just going to keep this review very short.

On the other hand, at times, it was over the top cheesy and I rolled my eyes more than once. I get that this one was supposed to be a combination of funny and cheesy but I don’t think the balance worked. I did really like Cassie and Ryan, both characters were ones that I really liked, and well who also couldn’t love an adorable raccoon. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed Hosed but I wish that the cheesy moments didn’t overtake the book.

    It's been a while since I've read a book that had me laughing out loud over and over again. I loved this. Who can resist a book with a pet raccoon name George Cooney?! I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in this series.
