Summary

A hockey-playing prince, a most improper lady, and one accidental pregnancy....

When you’re an heir so spare that getting attacked by a shark is more likely than you ever wearing the crown, you’re only allowed certain liberties. Yet still, those liberties can bite you in the ass.

Good thing I’m such a charming devil.

Even then, I’ve been banished to America for a year under the pretense of playing professional hockey while my father cleans up my latest mess. But trouble follows me wherever I go. Generally trouble of the beautiful female variety, and Gracie Diamonte is no exception. Or possibly, she’s the best exception.

Until the dinosaur suit. The cookie incident. And the accidental pregnancy.

Of course I’ll do the right thing.

Just as soon as I solve that pesky problem of my royal betrothal.

I’m about to be the biggest scandal to rock my country, and there’s a good chance my father may throw me to the sharks after all. The funny thing is I’ve heard that raising children may not be so different from swimming with the sharks. So no matter how you look at things, I am Royally Pucked.

Royally Pucked is a hilariously wrong romance between a spare heir and the lady least likely to ever wear a princess crown, complete with dirty cookies, an emotional support monkey, and lots of pucking around. This romantic comedy stands alone with no cheating or cliffhangers and ends happily with a family of...more than two.

Accents aside I love this

This review is a mix, I first read this on KU, then bought and reread then got the audio. So it's in 3 stages. :)

Loved this, couldn't put it down but at least this time I wasn't sat on a train surrounded by business men whole trying to stifle my giggles.

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.

Edited to add

I don't get the accent used on the audio, I understand why it was chosen but being a Brit my brain says "that's from there" I think it needed to be a little more RP for me. I've reread it a row times and it takes a while for me to get into because it's such a regional accent.

I do want a Honey Badger phone app, it'd be so useful.

Standalone in a series

I love all the characters in these books. A true romcom. Very low angst. There is a crazy betrothed with a monkey, a royal family, inappropriate cookies, hockey players, a kick a$$ sister, and lots of friends and family. The narration was great! I definitely recommend this book. 🎧Audiobook Obsession

Hockey & Cookies!

Whenever I need to relax, fall in love and just laugh, I know I can count on Pippa Grant. Every time I find myself falling into a story with good friends and a lot of laughs. Royally Pucked is especially good because of the amazingly strong heroine. Meet Gracie. A baker by trade, she hooks up with hockey player, Manning and later finds is pregnant. Manning is no ordinary hockey player, but Prince, with royal obligations and expectations. Determined to raise the baby alone, she finds herself in the midst of a wonderful love story. Now Grant doesn't just let it slowly unfold and let them easily get to their happy ending. We have pranks, and cookies, and the betrothed and family and hockey players all bringing us into the story full force. Laughing and falling in love is the best feeling, and she does it again for me with this one! The Copper Valley Thrusters are a team to follow!

Grant picks the best narrators for her stories. Jacob Morgan comes in with an accent that is swoony and heart melting. Virginia Rose shines as the feisty, Gracie. I enjoyed their comedic timing how their voices complimented each other. It was a great listen!

Great job bringing the ebook to life

I really liked the ebook when I read it a while ago but when I had the opportunity to listen to the ebook, I jumped at it because, well, Jacob Morgan. He affected this beautiful accent and I can just listen to him speaking for hours. Oh wait, I just did! ha No seriously, I am always impressed at how these narrators (Jacob Morgan and Virginia Rose) move so smoothly from voice to voice, male or female. The narration was excellent and truly elevated this adorable story.

This story itself is so fun. Manning is a prince but he's like 5th in line so he's allowed to play hockey for the Thrusters. What that means is we get to see some of the characters we love- Ares and Zeus, Murphy, etc. And i love revisiting our favorite cast of wacky characters. He meets and falls instantly for Gracie. They have one night together and oops, Gracie finds herself in the family way. But Manning has to deal with the responsibilities of royalty, including an arranged marriage. How do they overcome the obstacles to be together? It was a funny but also so sweet path to their HEA.

Fun, Steamy Rom Com!

You know when you pick up a Pippa Grant story it is going to be loaded with fun, crazy shenanigans, and lovable characters and Gracie and Manning’s story was all of that. I could not get enough of this book and loved every moment. The audio was narrated by Jacob Morgan and Virginia Rose and they both did an amazing job. I love Virginia in comedy roles plus Jacob Morgan with an accent. Definitely worth a listen or read!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

When I originally read the little summary of the book and seen it was about someone getting pregnant I was like great it’s another one of these books but this book was definitely not like any I have listened to before. Definitely worth it I quiet enjoyed it.

Sweet Royal Romance!

This is the second book in the Copper Valley Thrusters Series. I love Royally Romance! Gracie and Manning's story is hilarious, sweet, and sexy. Manning is a hockey-player, and a prince. He is handsome, and caring. Gracie, a baker, is lovely, feisty, and independent. They are opposites attract, and they are perfect together. Their story is beautifully written, and really sweet. The supporting characters are great! The Epilogues are hilarious! Jacob Morgan and Virginia Rose did a fantastic job with the narration. Jacob Morgan's accent is very pleasant to listen to. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to listen to more in the series.

A swoony and hilarious story

I love a book that includes a happy, sunshine and quirky girl and a tortured hero. This book has a little bit of everything - sweet moments, fan your face steamy, side splitting hilarity, tearful scenes, and heart squeezing love. Gracie and Manning’s love story has all the feels - expect to laugh and cry. Plus there are x-rated cookies and an emotional support monkey. On the surface, Gracie and Manning appear to be opposites. Manning is a prince from a small European country who has been relegated to the United States to play professional hockey and clean up his image before he has to return to marry the woman he was betrothed to when he was 10. Manning is determined to smile through everything. Gracie is a small town southern baker who barely passed high school, secretly sells x-rated cookies, swears too much and is definitely not princess material. After meeting at a charity event, Gracie and Manning have one quick sexual encounter in the locker room of the hockey team that leads to an unexpected pregnancy, and that is where the hilarity begins. On their way to their HEA, Gracie and Manning have to both learn a lot about love, family, duty, and embracing who you are. While they follow the inevitable path to being together, it is painfully hilarious to watch their growth and missteps. Sprinkled liberally throughout this beautifully paced story of Gracie and Manning’s HEA, there are also a number of characters from the Pippa Universe in this book. They are woven seamlessly into this story so rather than being overwhelming or detracting from the main love story, these characters are beautiful and hilarious additions to the unfurling of Gracie and Manning’s dance of love, passion and hilarity. Jacob Morgan and Virginia Rose are the perfect narrators for this book and add even more perfection to this story. Plus their accents are perfect for Manning and Gracie. With Royally Pucked, Pippa Grant once again proves she’s the queen of rom-coms. And Manning is indeed a swoon worthy book boyfriend.

Becoming my new favorite author

I am so enjoying all of Pippa Grant’s books. Love how all of the stories overlap into the other series. This story was hilarious, hot, and completely entertaining. Loved the narrators too. Looking forward to the next book. ❤️

Royally Fabulous Read!

I love this series and new I would love reading Gracie and Manning's book.
I got to meet them in The Pilot and The Puck Up and fell for how sweet and fiesty Gracie was with Joey.
Manning is a swoon worthy Prince who's a spare heir to the thrown, which means he gets to play professionally hockey.
Pippa has interwoven the books in this series to overlap stories in many places.
Gracie is a kick ass baker who has Manning eating out of her hands and at the same time irritating big sis for a double win !
One of the things I enjoy most about this series is it isn't cookie cutter and too similar to the other books. This one was funny but also really sweet.
Virginia narrated Gracie so well and Jacob's accent was panty melting!

So Fun

The story takes place in the great Thrusters ice hockey world build by Pippa Grant. The performance of the readers was fabulous. Hearing a southern accent and the "royal" accent of Stolland. The 3 bonus epilogues had me laughing so hard I cried.

Royalty and cookies.

This book had me in stitches. I adore Gracie and Manning... I am not normally one for the accidental baby troupe... but this one has cookies.. and the Berger twins. I totally mispronounced Stoland when I was reading on kindle. Stay for the epilogues. I was laughing so hard my dogs were staring
