"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Zeus Berger is a brute on and off the ice and no woman has ever made him think about love, fairy tales, and all that jazz. The only thing that scares him are spiders and maybe his sister. But he's about to meet his match in the form of one feisty pilot.
Their attraction seems unlikely but there's a pull there that neither can deny. The more the fire grows between, the less this relationship stars to feel like it's just a fling.
Can they really makes this a lasting relationship or will they crash and burn faster then a jet going Mach 10?
The Pilot & the Puck-Up is a fun, witty, saucy read that will have the reader laughing out loud while making knees weak and hearts swoon.
Joey is definitely a fireball you can't help but fall in love with. I love all her sassy comebacks, giving as good or better as she gets. I adore her willingness to give love and Zeus a try even though she's scared.
Zeus is everything you think a big, brute of a hockey player could be, but there is more than meets the eye. He's got a heart of gold and really nothing more than huge teddy bear. He's the guy that will always be there for his family and friends no matter what.
The passion between Joey and Zeus ignites right from the start and only intensifies as the story progresses. I love how they both open up to each other while building a strong, long lasting relationship. Zeus may have a few false starts in the beginning, but he's not a man to walk away from a challenge and Joey is a challenge he wants to win.
I love, love, love Joey and Zeus. They are fun, sexy, and completely adorable. Their journey is so entertaining from cover to cover that you won't want to put it down. Zeus will make is way under your skin and into your heart before you even know what's happening.
I highly suggest that you run and pick up The Pilot & the Puck-Up and find out why readers are falling head over heals for Zeus and Joey. There may be a few bumps in the road, but Zeus will score a goal and win the game in the end.
Zeus Berger. That's what.
It's ironic that my initial reaction to him in the other books and upon finding out that he would get his own story was, "How could Pippa Grant possibly make me fall in love with this larger-than-life oaf who has an ego to match and probably half the IQ?" because this is exactly the reaction that Zeus is used to getting and the one thing he longs for someone to look beyond. I never expected discover the softer, smarter side of him and I definitely didn't expect to be swooning so hard over him. Of course, what could bring out the softer side of a big old brute like him better than a tough-as-nails, take no bs, successful woman?
Enter Joey "Fireball" Diamonte.
I don't think I've ever met such a ballsy, badass heroine as Joey. Sure, she comes across as cold and stubborn and extremely stand-offish but this is precisely why her and Zeus are perfect for each other. They are the only two strong-willed, confident (some might say cocky) people who could possibly have the patience and will to push past each other's barriers. And boy did they make it an interesting journey!!
There are a lot of books that make me smile, and even make me giggle but this one made me literally laugh out loud. #gleek #spiders I don't love romcoms that are overtly raunchy or crass simply for the sake of trying to be funny but when those things are true to who a character is and that character is well-developed beyond those characteristics, it makes all the difference. That kind of thing gets old really quick when it seems to be the only dimension to a character and their story. This is not the case with Pippa Grant's books. If you feel overwhelmed or annoyed by some of the behaviors of her characters in the beginning of the story, stick it out, I swear you won't be disappointed. Outside of all the laughs this books provides, you'll also feel. This story has heart and it's kind of embedded itself in mine.
Joey’s a tough nut. A hard-nosed pilot who’s climbed high and low and high again flying jets in her getting-off-the-ground vomit comet business, men don’t interest her. Much. One thing you have to say about Zeus is he makes a distinctive entrance into her life. Joey’s there to drum up investors in her business. Zeus is there...because.
Things get crazy after that, including a ride on a gravity flight, the aforementioned vomit comet, and we meet a little girl who’s got possibly more moxie than either Joey or Zeus who frankly deserves a book or her own - or her single mother does. (Hear that, Pippa Grant? I want the kids’ mom to have a HEA too, because they deserve one!)
The romance is hilarious and top-notch, with all the craziness in a PG (that’s Pippa Grant, and it’s NOT PG rated) book. So, get it, sit back, and be prepared to giggle your way through Zeus’ growing self-awareness and Joey’s crash landing into giant Zeus. Hey, any landing is a good one, even a crash one. And I think Joey would agree. And Zeus.
