Publisher's Summary

A billionaire boss, a terror on the ice with ego to spare, and a hockey-playing prince are here to entertain you with their love stories in this box set introducing the Copper Valley Thrusters hockey team!

Mister McHottie is the hilariously sexy prequel to the Copper Valley Thrusters series, where you’ll first meet the twin tank hockey players who inspired the next books. It comes complete with an organic happy-ever-after (or seven), a Bratwurst Wagon, ill-advised office pranks between a billionaire boss and the woman he tormented as a child, and no cheating or cliffhangers.

The Pilot and the Puck-Up is a stand-alone romantic comedy featuring a hockey player whose ego is the only thing bigger than his shoe size, a fierce lady-boss pilot, rubber chockey (don't ask), and no cheating or cliffhangers.

Royally Pucked is a side-splittingly epic 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, cliffhangers, and ends happily with a family of…more than two.

Amazing trio

This series is packed full of laugh out loud moments and plenty of hotness to go with it. We have Chase and Ambrosia in Mr. McHottie and they are hilarious. Then we get Zeus Berger who is Ambrosia's brother and Chase's friend and the big hockey player that falls for Joey who takes no prisoners' in The Pilot and the Puck Up. Last but not least is The Royally Pucked which is Manning and Gracie's story and full of a monkey and cookies. All three of these books are fantastic and stand on their own but are even better together.

The narrators were great in each of these three books. Perfectly cast for the characters and they all brought their A game. Great listen and I loved them. I highly recommend this set.

Fun times for all

Audible review: The audio narration adds a lot of charm to the stories. While I loved all 3 books when I first read them, I found the narrators made the characters more likeable and memorable. The sheer ridiculousness of certain situations are highlighted by their performances. Having the extra bonus epilogues added in is a delight. As usual with the Copper Valley Thrusters, much hilarity and smexy times abound. Each story is a standalone but builds from the previous. No cliffhangers, no cheating, always a happily ever after.

The Thrusters!

To be honest this is my second listen by Pippa. well 3rd. I did listen to Hosed. Anyways, I am a fan! I have been laughing since I started this box set. and I am quickly trying to figure out if I am going to use credits for the rest of Pippa's books. I absolutely love Rom Coms on Audiable. They make me happy!

Mr. McHottie
Holy hell!!! I was dying! I freaking loved this Story. The Bratt mobile, and the insane chemistry. yes please.
This is a silly sweet story that is laugh out loud! Aiden Snow and Ava Erickson are fantastic!!! They really bring these characters to life!

The Pilot and the Puckup
I would give the story line a 4. but Everything else a 5.
For some reason I was struggling with this story. it was not bad, maybe the dual narration was throwing me off. I was laughing none stop. I don't think I was a huge fan of Joey. (she grew on me towards the end) but I really was struggling with her there for a good chunk on the book. However, once I did get past her quirky nature I loved her for Zeus! I had a few tear felt moments in this book. Could be hormones. lol. As always Jason Clarke perfect for Zeus!! PERFECT! you need that deep rich voice for that God like Mammoth of a Hokey player! Erin Mallon was awesome! Both the Narrators did a great job and help bring all the characters to life.

Royal Puckett

oh dear lord hands down the best book of the series so far!! I was in love with EVERYTHING about it! Gracie really is sweet as can be and Manning holy spit can we say how swoon worthy he is!
I love Jacob Morgan! He has quickly become one of my favorite Narrators, but listening to his accent!! just awesome!!! He did so well! I have read that people struggle with Virginia Rose, but I love her! she was awesome. These Narrators were simply amazing. Well done!!

Hilarious stories and wonderful performances

Story kept me laughing, the characters were intriguing even the side characters. I love how pippa is interweaving the characters through the different stories and even different series. It makes me want to get the other books so that I can learn more about them.


Shout out for narrators!!!
I love it when the male actually speaks vs female impersonating male and vice versa. So for those dialogues, it’s an actual performance/acting. Although it’s more work, it’s worth it to enjoy the audio.

Love too series

I enjoyed all of these stories when they were individually released. Love seeing them in a box set. Doing a re-listen currently. Love the Berger kids! There is something special about the Berger siblings. They all have fun unique ways that they live their lives. The enjoy the little things in life. It has been a little while since I last listened so was nice to jump back into that world for a few day's. Love all of the narrators that Pippa Grant brings together to bring the story alive from the first page to the last.

4.5 Hilarious Royal RomCom Stars!

~ Mister McHottie (The Copper Valley Thrusters #0.5)
I had so much fun listening to this quirky, heartfelt, steamy enemies to lovers romance. Chase and Ambrosia grew up together and have a history, that because of miscommunication, have left each other with scars. Now Chase is back in her life as her new boss and she is not happy about it. When she and her crazy friends want to prank his office one night, Chase finds Bro as she is trying to distract attention. They have a passionate encounter that reminds them of their explosive chemistry. They aren't happy about it and the insults fly fast and furious. But the insults and pranks are their foreplay and they can't seem to stop. Chase is so sweet, and swoony as he tries to make thinks right with Bro. Bro feels like she was robbed of her dreams, so she uses insults as a shield. She is funny and passionate and only wants to do what she loves. Ava Erickson, and Aiden Snow did a great job bringing this story to life. I love both their voices, along with their flawless comedic timing and dynamic voice changes. This is my first Pippa Grant audio and I will definitely check out more of her work.

~ The Pilot & the Puck-Up (The Copper Valley Thrusters #1)
I had so much fun listening to this hilarious, heartfelt, and steamy hockey romance. I fell for Zeus, the huge professional hockey player with an even bigger heart. He is smart, confident and unapologetically blunt. He easily has women throwing themselves at him, so when he meets Joey "Fireball' Diamonte, he is completely bowled over. Joey is ex-military, and is a pilot that runs her own flight adventure company. She is tough, athletic, loves taking care of her family, and never takes crap from anybody. She and Zeus are drawn to each other right from the start. They are so much alike as they care for those in need, and love a challenge. Joey doesn't give in easily to Zeus, making him work for her attention. There are so many hilarious moments when Zeus is out of his element, but it makes him want her even more. I love Zeus and Joey together! They really understand each other, are sensitive to each others flaws, and are so competitive, it only fuels their explosive chemistry. I also all their quirky friends and family, who made this story even more fun.
Jason Clarke, and Erin Mallon did a great job bringing this story to life. I love both their voices, along with their flawless comedic timing and dynamic voice changes as they delivered the clever, fast paced, snarky banter. They made this hilarious, heartfelt, and steamy story even better.

~ Royally Pucked (The Copper Valley Thrusters #2)
This hilarious romcom was fun and sizzling from the very beginning and never slowed down. Manning is a real Prince from Stölland. He is not in line to become king but has been banished for a bit so they can clean up his latest scandals. Because he loves and played hockey on Stölland's olympic team, he moved to America to play on a professional hockey team there. He meets and is intrigued by Gracie, a fiesty, beautiful baker. They have a night of fiery passion that results in Gracie getting pregnant. She is determined to raise her baby on her own, without trapping Manning, but would like him to be involved. Manning is surprised by how much he wants Gracie and their baby. When unexpected royal duties get in the way, Manning tries to protect them by leaving. But Gracie doesn't want him to suffer his fate if she can help him. But can a sheltered southern girl with a potty mouth be enough to defy a king and save Manning? I love how strong Gracie is despite her insecurities about some things. She is smart, loyal and spunky and the perfect match for the sweet, and swoony Manning.
This entertaining story is brought to life beautifully by Jacob Morgan, and Virginia Rose. I love both their voices, along with their flawless comedic timing and dynamic voice changes as they delivered the clever, fast paced, snarky banter. They made me laugh, swoon and cheer for Manning and Gracie's HEA. They made this hilarious, heartfelt, and steamy story even better.

Brilliant storyline

Mr Mccotty

With so much humour and sass this book is a pleasure to read/listen too. The characters are likeable and fun. A great performance from Ava and Aiden.

The pilot and the puck up

This book is hilarious! Pippa has captured the very best of these characters. I love how a massive alpha man beast can turn into a screaming little girl so quickly. Amazing! A brilliant performance from both narrators.

Royaly pucked

This is yet another fantastically hilarious book in this series. With a well written storyline and absolutely hysterical consequences you have to listen to this audiobook. Absolutely brilliant performance from both narrateors.

Hilariously Entertaining

Ambrosia & Chase
They grew up together and made each other crazy. Now they work together and are making each other crazy, in a more adult way.
Joey & Zeus
Joey is a bad azz pilot and is good at everything. Zeus is a BIG bad azz hockey player that can’t manage to get himself under control and is fumbling up everything after meeting Joey.
Gracie & Manning
Seems to be a lot of crazy in this book. Manning is a prince but not the next in line. Gracie is Joeys sister and bakes erotic cookies.
All three books are hilariously entertaining. If you want to laugh and fall in love with great Characters Pippa Grant knows how to create just that. All of these books have hockey players in them, however she doesn’t get into the hockey aspect too much. Pippa’s books are pretty low angst with just enough heat to make them great. In my opinion, Pippa writes the best rom-coms. She also picks the best narrators. All of these are perfectly narrated with the best personalities. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession

Don’t miss this!

If you want feel good, fun romcoms, look no further. Pippa Grant has you covered! Grab this first part of the Thrusters series!
Mister McHottie is a goal scoring book! Chase and Ambrosia(Bro) have a history. The best friend of her twin brothers, their times together were just as you would imagine. The banter and antics of brothers and sister alike turned into much more drastic for Chase and Bro as they became adults. Now striving for her dream, she finds out he bought the supermarket chain she works for. Will that spark of hate burn into something more? Grant has created an fantastic couple. These two have combustible chemistry, and their banter had me walking around with a smile.

Next we have Royally Pucked and it's 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.

Lastly we have Beauty and the Beefcake. This one is especially fun, as it has a variety of personalities in our heroine, Felicity. She is an amazing ventriloquist, who has been trying to find herself. Now with a crazy ex stalking her, she needs some protection. Ares is an injured hockey player, a man of few words, who needs to rest and heal. Who better to be put together? This set up is so good, with the talkative Felicity, misunderstood, and underappreciated she is a woman we can all find something in common with. Ares, with his one word grunts, his persistence to be on the ice, and just his feeling of the underdog makes it impossible not to love him.

With a narration cast for each book, perfect for the characters, and spot on comedic timing, you can't help but have a good time! Grab this great boxset now!
