Summary

"They call me the Ice Dragon, but it's really just all for show." (Boris Drăghici)

The Ice Dragon was traded to Las Vegas for one reason and one reason only: to bring the Crush another Cup Championship. 

But off the ice, there’s something not right with my money. My financial managers in Russia are probably stealing from me. So I really need the expert eye of a pro to investigate what's going on. 

My money being stolen is problem number one. 

Having the hots for the genius finance goddess I just hired to help me out of problem number one? That's problem number two. 

It’s very pucking hard to keep things professional when the girl of my dreams - the girl who may be the one - is saying "no" to crossing the blue line with me. 

I guess this means the Ice Dragon will just have to keep fighting until Talia Wentworth understands that I want her for so much more than simply managing my puck money. 

Puck Money is about a Russian-Romanian superstar hockey center with money problems and the tantalizing financial advisor he's hired to sort out his pucking investments. Boris and Talia are in for the ride of a lifetime in Fabulous Sin City as they follow the money trail and fall further in lust for each other. This is definitely not your parents' guide to financial planning.

I want a Boris

This was such an enjoyable and fun book, Boris and Thalia were so much fun. There was so much heat in this book and the undertone of suspense and mystery surrounding Boris’s money was fantastic. I loved the way that Boris seemed to have such a one track mind with finding the one, I loved this twist on the normal genre.

This is a book that I couldn’t recommend more. The characters were well written and so much fun. The storyline was well paced and the narration was certainly on point.

Great hockey story!

Boris and Talia are a match made in nerd heaven! Boris is a hot hockey player who really doesn't like the hockey lifestyle. He is a one-woman man. Talia is a nerdy accountant who meats Boris when he asks for help with his finances.

These two have a lot of chemistry. Talia doesn't have to try to be what she's not because that is exactly what Boris loves about her. This is my first read in this series, so I loved meeting the other players and seeing the team dynamics. This story was a good love story with some suspense. It was a good quick story. I want to go back and read the others!

The narrators did a great job bringing this one to life!

Loved it - Great story and great narration

The fourth book in the series and can definitely be read/listened to as a stand alone, although all the books are so good I recommend you one click all of them, you won’t be disappointed.

Boris Draghici, what a hot and sexy hockey player this man is. I think I may have a new book boyfriend, he really ticked the boxes for me and the woman that tamed him, Talia
was his destiny.

The narrators John Lane and Mackenzie Cartwright did a great job, particularly John whose accent was spine chilling. They really brought the story to life for me with their consistent narration and in my opinion they nailed Boris and Talia with their performance..
 
I loved everything about Boris and Talia, both separately and together. I loved how feisty Talia was and Boris, there is so much more to him than just a hockey player, he made me swoon.
 
Seeing familiar faces make an appearance just added to my reading enjoyment. The banter and the chase as Boris and Talia dance around their feelings was riveting. I loved Puck Money and cannot wait for the next book in the series.

My favorite book in the Vegas Crush series!

Okay, Puck Money has officially become my favorite book in the Vegas Crush series! Boris and Natalia are such a sweet couple together!

John Lane and Mackenzie Cartwright do an excellent job of portraying Boris and Talia. They are spot on in their inflections and emotions of the story. John does a great job of getting into character and nailing the accents of Boris and the Russian hockey players and characters in the story.

I really enjoyed this audio and got totally immersed in the story. Boris and Talia are perfect together, and as I said, this story is my favorite of this series!

Boris is adorable!

I really enjoyed this story set in the world of professional hockey. Boris was a doll! It was refreshing to read about a pro sports athlete that wasn’t the typical player.

Puck Money my new fave in the Vegas Crush series

John does a great job of putting on a slight accent as Boris. hearing some of the things Boris says is totally swoon worthy! Puck Money may be my new favorite book in the Vegas Crush series. Boris and Talia are the sweetest, most endearing, down to earth couple of the series. Puck Money follows the no fraternization pattern of the other books, but not because Crush policy this time.
Talia is a young, nerdy, super smart, financial advisor new to Las Vegas. Her company moved her to Vegas to start fresh after she had an affair with a married client (she didn't know he was married,BTW).
Borris is new to the Crush after a recent trade from Austin. He is excited to play on a team with a great lineup, and is looking to settle down, not take advantage of the crazy night life and puck bunnies Vegas has to offer.
The two meet when Borris' agent recommends Talia as his new financial advisor. The chemistry is instant for both of them, but Talia has been burned by a client before and is very hesitant to jump in. Borris sees this and holds back. A lot of sweet and steamy romance ensues, as well as some intrigue and danger. But it all ends with a nerdy, swoon worthy HEA that captured this nerd's heart.

Puck

I love this book and all the others in this series and couldn’t wait for it to come to life in the audible. I love how deep John’s voice is and how he changed his voice into other foreign accents. Mackenzie and John did such an awesome job narrating it. I love how Raine puts the words together in romance. And the audible makes me feel like I am in another world.
