REVIEW: Hammered by Pippa Grant and Lili Valente


I didn’t mean to kidnap the groom.

One minute, the town’s bad boy was standing there at the altar, and the next, he’s accidentally passed out in my Vespa sidecar with his bride hot on our tail.

I didn’t have a choice. It was ‘napping Jace or watching him commit a crime against love and humanity and puppies. And besides, what’s a little kidnapping between friends?

I think we’re friends, anyway. Everyone says not to get too close, that he’s trouble, that he’ll drag me down with him, but I know there’s more to him. And not just because the moonshine told me so that night we got hammered, and I kissed him. 

Okay, so yes, I kissed him. And no, I don’t regret it. Or anything else about that night. Like stealing that squirrel. Or liberating that hedgehog. Because hedgehogs shouldn’t be trapped cages with abusive spouses, and neither should Jace.

Or maybe I just shouldn’t get hammered. Ever again.

You’re my favorite nut, you know that? Try to have fun with the animals.


Welcome back to the quirky town of Happy Cat. This small town of full of romance and fun individuals.

Jace has a reputation as the town bad boy and Olivia is the good girl, though she is also on the eccentric side of life. Two people who seem so different but yet, somehow, they are perfect for each other. Jace and Olivia have an instant connection, they are both drawn to each other.

Of course, Jace’s on and off again relationship with Ginger is back on, despite Jace not feeling any sort of attraction to Ginger, he is trying to be a good man when she says she is pregnant with his baby. He wants to be there and make things work for the sake of his unborn child. Olivia is hurt, she had on magical night with Jace and now she can’t stop thinking about him, she can’t stop wanting him.

Well these two crazy residents of Happy Cat get happily ever after they deserve?

I died of laughter throughout this entire story. I couldn’t put it down. I loved how caring and loving Olivia is for every person and animal she meets. Of course, she would adopt a hedgehog and befriend an adorable Alpaca, plus the town trash panda, George Cooney.

I love Pippa Grant and I love Lili Valente but together they create pure, laugh out loud, rom com gold! This is a MUST READ for any fans of quirky towns, hilarious rom coms or you’re just looking for a different type of romance.
