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.
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.

“Small town romance, 4 stars”
Cassie much prefers her coding over dealing with people and now that her sister is in the wind she’s dealing with a lot of people. Cassie is back in the town she grew up in taking care of her sister’s business. Running a self-pleasure business is hard for someone who has never been with a man let alone taken care of herself. When her sister’s business starts to be targeted will Cassie be able to hold it all together or will her neighbor distract her?
Ryan didn’t recognize Cassie when he saw her for the first time in ever, but he was definitely attracted to her more he was back in the day. Will he be able to win her over? When crazy stuff starts to happen surrounding her will he stop and listen to her or will he run? There’s only one way to find out, one-click.
I enjoyed Hosed. The characters were strong and well suited. I liked the secondary characters and want to know if they get stories as well. The only reason I’m giving Hosed a 4 stars is it didn’t have near the laugh out humor that I’m used to from Grant so for me it fell a little flat.
Hosed by Pippa Grant and Lilli Valente
Review by Erin Hurst
Y'all need to stop reading the review, and just buy the book and read it! If you're not already reading every single one of Pippa Grant's books, do yourself a favor and get on that! Ms. Grant and Ms. Valenti spun an amazing tale. These quirky town and characters are a great combo for our opposites attract romance.
Cassie has to return to her hometown to help her sister out with a tough situation. But that plops Cassie straight into a tough situation of her own. Ryan is her high school crush and now next door neighbor that keeps running into her. Their interactions prove hilarious, and that not only can opposites attract and love can overcome, but that adversity and differences can be surmounted.
Cassie Sunderwell is the little sister to Savannah, former TV star and now owner of a hippie sex toy factory. (Yes, I really did type that.) Savannah is having troubles with her ex, so little sister has come to town to give big sis a much needed vacation. Cassie left town after high school and has grown into a wonderful woman-a video game lover and programmer who is much more shy and introverted than her older sister. But before she left, she harbored a huge crush on Ryan. And of course Ryan O'Dell is her new next door neighbor and a hot firefighter. He has an interesting pet who meanders into Cassie's life to wreak some havoc. But while Ryan is a great firefighter and townsperson, he's got a lot of self doubt and doesn't understand why Cassie is so grumpy about their past. He's got his mind made up to change it so their future is intwined.
Heat - Was the heat in the book good? Did it seem organic or forced? Did the characters have chemistry? (If the book is not supposed to have heat, skip this paragraph.)
Well, we already know Cassie had a crush on teenage Ryan. And that grown up Ryan is a hot firefighter. And while Cassie may be a nerdy virgin, she's got everything Ryan finds attractive. So despite the history and hiccups, they work it out. Their chemsitry and sex appeal reads very well in the book; just awkward enough to be real, but true and honest and sexy.
I had so much fun reading this book, and read so quickly I didn't take the time to highlight anything in this book. Which is sad, because there are so many funny lines. So dear reader, go forth and read! Just make sure you have a solid chunk of time to read, because you will want to binge this whole book at once, and then you may get sucked into reading all the other books by these authors!
I smiled and laughed, grimaced and groaned, all the emotions. The book was well written and well paced. I have read a lot of Pippa Grant's book and can't wait to read more by Lili Valente. FYI, Pippa Grant has a Bonus Epilogue on her website for this book, as well as many of ther other books!
