Title: Hosed
Authors: Pippa Grant & Lili Valente
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy
 Release Date: January 15, 2019


The world’s sexiest firefighter is about to get a second chance with the virgin next door…

He’s bossy, arrogant, and so ridiculously hot he should come with a warning label and a pair of flame retardant coveralls.
He’s also the boy who broke my heart when we were in high school.

I want to move in next door to Ryan O’Dell the way I want to be the virgin gamer geek suddenly in charge of running my sister’s sex toy factory. Too bad both are written in my stars.

Yeah, I’m the world’s oldest virgin code-writing nerd. 

And he’s the world’s hottest firefighter. 

And even though he intimidates the heck out of me, I can’t seem to control my libido when he’s around.

Where is my dignity? My self-respect? My panties?

Seriously…. Have you seen them? Anyone?

Maybe they’re hiding in his bedroom. With my heart.

Yeah, I know. I’m hosed.  

So hosed.

Hosed is a steamy, fun romantic comedy between a firefighter and the virgin nerd next door, complete with a pet raccoon, scandalous gossip, and dildo football. (No, really.) This romance has no cheating or cliffhangers, and ends with a banging hot happily ever after.


A small town where everyone knows everyone and are constantly up in everyone elses business is the perfect stage for this romantic comedy. This crazy story is told in dual POV and features Cassie, Ryan and the racoon George, as well as a small town of other crazies.

Cassie and Ryan went to high school together and meet again years later. Ryan, the hot firefighter, responds to a fire in the local sex toy factory where he runs into Cassie. She is back in town running the factory for her sister while she is travelling around Europe nursing a broken heart. They butt heads imediately and the sparks fly – both literally and figuratively.

It took me a while to get into this story and I’m not sure why because the writing is excellent and has a great flow. Maybe I just wasn’t in the right frame of mind when I read it, or maybe it was too much information and crazy right off the bat. Anyway, I really got into it about half way and really liked it. Cassie and Ryan had great chemistry, and I liked the relationship developing between the two. I adored George and will google how to get a pet racoon, since I now really want one to watch movies and share popcorn with. Overall this was a good romantic comedy with lots of laugh out loud moments, a bit of mystery and action as well as friendship and family. For me this was a 3.8 star read, and I would not hesitate to read another book written by Lili Valente and Pippa Grant together.
