Oh. My. Freakin'. Dog!! Get this book NOW! This has got to be the most side-splitting, gut-busting, laugh-so-hard-you-cry, spew-your-drink, my-side-hurts-make-it-stop, hilarious rom-com I’ve ever read! Somehow I found my way to this author's newsletters and that delightful entertainment prompted me to grab the chance to read an advance copy of this book. My only regret is my failure to highlight these laugh-out-loud gems as I read so I could quickly recall them the next time I need a laugh, which simply means a revisit to Gracie and Manning’s story in the near future. After I read the first book, of course, because there's no resisting catching up on Zeus and Joey's story, having had a small taste of them here.
So the basic premise is this: a spare heir to the throne of a small Nordic country wreaks so much havoc his father, the king, sends him to play hockey in the States while the messes get cleaned up in time for him to wed the woman he was betrothed to practically from birth. The naughty prince behaves just a little badly, resulting in an unfortunate future heir by way of Joey's sister, Gracie, a sweet bakery owner from Alabama. Royal mayhem and Southern shenanigans ensue. Throw in a monosyllabic gentle giant of a hockey player/roommate (Aries), a harridan shrew with a traitorous emotional support monkey (Manning's betrothed), and a woman with more attitude and testosterone than hockey players (Joey), then grab your popcorn, sit back and enjoy the show.
Don’t let the above lull you into thinking it’s all fun and games. There’s plenty of heat with the slow burn, off the charts chemistry between Manning and Gracie, but most of all, a ton of heart as Gracie and Manning sort out the mess and find their happily ever after. And did I mention bonus epilogues? They take place between the last chapter and the book's epilogue and are a perfect addition that you won't want to miss, so don’t forget to grab them from the link at the back of the book. In the interest of full disclosure, I’ve already grabbed The Pilot And The Puck Up and read Zeus and Joey's story last night. Trust me, once you get a taste of these characters you're going to want more and more of them! These characters are endlessly entertaining, sweetly endearing, unique, quirky and larger than life. They’ll bulldoze their way into your heart, making themselves right at home, and you’ll love every minute of it!
*I reviewed this book freely and voluntarily, having made no commitment to provide a review and receiving no compensation of any kind from any source for this review.
I loved these two!
Gracie with all of her southern charm, sweetness and giving heart. She owns her own bakery and makes most of her living off of the “secret” cookies she bakes on the side. But when pushed, she has a backbone made of steel and has no trouble pushing back.
Manning, fourth in line to the throne of a small Nordic country ruled by his family. But is much happier being temporarily exiled to the states to play hockey, while they clean up his latest mess.
These two had chemistry from the first time they met in The Pilot and the Puck-Up. A chance encounter after a hockey game changes both of their worlds for ever.
But Gracie has no intentions of bowing down to anyone, Royal or not. She is expecting nothing from Manning. Knowing he is only in the states for a limited time, and would likely send her on her way before claiming their baby. But she has a few surprises waiting for her when she shows up to tell him about the baby. Not the least of which is his fiancé showing up to work on wedding plans.
I loved catching up with some of the past characters.
Even with his betrothed showing up, there is no hanky panky going on. Just Manning and Gracie.
I’m really looking forward to Ares’ story.
At first, Gracie comes off as too nice. Too sweet. Too náive. She finds her steel with Manning and her baby and quickly sheds most of those. She'd make an awesome queen. Sweet and kind while also being tough. Too bad that's not in the cards for her. Manning is his incredibly irritating sexy self. We also see a lot more vulnerability in him than with the others. He's trying to do right but seems to only need things up more. He learns with help from Ares and Gracie.
I know I'm always in for a good time when I pick up a Pippa Grant book and Royally Pucked is no different. The humorous banter has you laughing out loud. The writing has you quickly turning pages. The characters have you laughing and rooting for them throughout the whole book! I'm so ready for Ares' book, he's been my favorite from book one!
Stand-Alone: Yes but even better if you've read Pippa Grant's other books. Characters are interconnecting.
Part of a Series: No but all of Pippa Grant's books are set in the same world so have interconnecting characters.

I love Gracie and Manning!!! This book was cheeky funny but also had a great message of fighting for those you love. Royally Pucked was sweet and sexy and sometimes I wanted to beat Manning. I adore Viktor and hope he gets a book of this own as well. (The rockstar too - his name is escaping me at the moment, must be all the helium.) There's much I can say without giving away jokes or ruining this story so I'll just say that if you love romantic comedies then check out Pippa Grant's books. They're sweet, funny, and sexy with hilarious situations that have you laughing at inappropriate times. Royally Pucked was no exception.

These books are hilarious, yet carry an emotional, touching undertone that I find irresistible.
Gracie is a seemingly uncomplicated woman who oozes sweetness. Scratch the surface and she has a will of pure steel and a drive to succeed. I really appreciated the lack of artifice in her character, she just so genuinely kind and decent.
Contrast her with Manning, a Prince seemingly without purpose. It would be so easy to cast him as an vacuous playboy and he tries to cultivate this image. Scratch his surface and you find a man who just wants to be loved for who, not what, he is.
I loved them as a couple, the love they felt for each other transcends all obstacles.
There's great humor running through the whole book and I laughed at the antics of secondary characters, especially Zeus with his main means of communication, the (in)appropriate Gif! I can't wait for his story, there's an entire ocean of secrets behind his largely nonverbal persona.
I can't recommend this book and author highly enough. Fun reads, with hidden depth.
I am going to sleep now, there was no stopping me before. I may add more tomorrow.
So here's my actual review ;)
This is part of a series, it's probably best to read in order but not necessary. They're funny, they're naughty they're great, they're also embarrassing to read in public (I read them all on trains) because you sniggering, guffaw, gasp, chuckle and go ping when things get saucy. Well worth it.
This one has royalty, sheep, accidental pregnancy, cookies, hockey players and a monkey.
I love these books. I got them on KU first but have ended up buying them all to keep because they're so funny.
Throw in blow up Dinosaurs, lots of Cookies and Loki the emotional support monkey and you have sore a stomach and cheeks with laughing so much.
Absolutely loved this story and absolutely recommend you read it.
HOWEVER this worked. An amazing heroine in Gracie who sets out to save the prince - yay strong ladies! Manning also intrigued me from previous books and I loved the depth of his character development.
Add in Berger brothers, mad cap hockey players, profane cookies and an emotional support monkey and you've got a brilliant hilarious and very sweet book!
