Incredible You
Author: Lili Valente
Release Date:October 25th 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance



From the USA Today Bestselling author of Magnificent Bastard comes a sexy, flirty, dirty standaloneon ice.

They say Jake ÔÇ£The DragonÔÇØ Falcone earned his nickname by setting fire to the ice his first season in the NHL. But just between us ladies, IÔÇÖm pretty sure he earned it for the dragon in his pants.

Lord have f*cking mercy, but the mans been given a gift. (And Ive heard he knows exactly how to use it.) From my first hug as his fake girlfriend, its clear hes packing below the belt. After a few fake dates I realize hes packingeverywhere.

Heart, brains, sex-vibe, and the ability to make me laugh so hard I almost pee my pantsÔÇöJake is everything IÔÇÖve ever wanted in a man.

HeÔÇÖs also my client and OFF LIMITS. Oh, and he has an ex whoÔÇÖs completely crazy and out for my blood.

I should steer clear, and I would, if my dragon werent so completely incredible


The name sounded like a joke. Who in his right mind wants a ÔÇ£Miraculous MessÔÇØ running damage control on his f*cked up love life?

Wellme, it turns out.

By the time I leave her apartment on day one, IÔÇÖm halfway gone on Shane ÔÇ£Miraculous MessÔÇØ Willoughby. By the end of our first date, I know my life wonÔÇÖt be complete until IÔÇÖve had this beautiful, sexy, perfectly wild woman in every filthy way IÔÇÖve imagined since our first kiss.

I want her, all of her, from the smart mouth that makes me smile to the wounded heart I know I can heal. If sheÔÇÖll let me.

Can a Madison Avenue princess and a dragon from the wrong side of the tracks live happily ever after?

If I have my way, the world is about to find out.

Warning: Incredible You is a sexy, standalone romantic comedy told from BOTH the hero and the heroine’s point of view. No cliffhanger. Lots of hot steamy sexy times, laugh out loud textual healing, and an aw-out-loud happily ever after.

Review Banner

Holy hilariousness and hotness combined!┬á If you are a fan of Helena HuntingÔÇÖs Pucked series, then this book is for you! ┬áShane is a woman who has no filter and Jake is schmexy (and sensitive) hockey player packing a pet dragon in his pants.┬á Yup, grand combination to tickle your sides and keep you turning the pages. ┬áIt’s an unorthodox setup; he needs a fake girlfriend to get out of a real mess.

What I loved so much about this book is how real their connection turned out to be under these fake pretenses. ┬áJake is an intensely private person who doesn’t trust, but Shane has managed to sneak under his facade in a matter of minutes. ┬áPeeling back the layers to learn about him was fun; watching him go a bit crazy for this pint-sized foul mouth lacking a filter was a highlight!

Shane was in a place in her life where she didn’t need a man to make her whole; she could stand on her own two feet. ┬áBringing a man into her life would be a conscious decision to share herself. ┬áShane has a truly wonderful heart and she makes it pretty hard not to love her. ┬áA testament to her wonderfulness is her elderly neighbor; you don’t get to have people like Hillary in your life if you’re not worthy.

Watching Jake and Lili go from trying to figure out how to pretend to be in a relationship to the┬árealization that what they’re feeling is more than lust is a fantastic journey. ┬áYou’ll have some great laughs, as well as some angst and drama -all in the right doses.

Valente’s writing is easy to take in and keeps you glued to the pages. ┬áIt’s a great read that will leave you with a smile and happy heart.

Magnificent Bastard Cover


ÔÇ£YouÔÇÖre not a klutz,ÔÇØ I say, guiding her closer. ÔÇ£I love the way you move.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£Yeah?ÔÇØ She bites her lip, bringing to mind that list of bitable body parts I hope to be getting from her later.

ÔÇ£Yeah,ÔÇØ I say, my gaze fixed on her sexy mouth. ÔÇ£I could watch you walk across a room all day long. Just the way your hips shift beneath your clothes drives me crazy.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£Real life crazy,ÔÇØ she says softly.

ÔÇ£Real life crazy,ÔÇØ I confirm. ÔÇ£So crazy that on the way up in that elevator, it was all I could do not to flip the emergency switch.ÔÇØ

Her lashes sweep down and back up, heat flickering in her eyes. ÔÇ£And what would you have done after you flipped the switch, dragon?ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£I would have kissed you, princess.ÔÇØ I donÔÇÖt bother to hide the hunger in my voice. ÔÇ£I would have pushed you up against the wall and kissed every part of you not covered by that sexy as fuck dress. And then I would have gone after the covered parts, just to see how far you would let me go before you told me to stop.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£And what if I didnÔÇÖt tell you to stop?ÔÇØ Her tongue sweeps across her lips and my cock jerks hard in my pants, losing the battle against what this woman does to me.

ÔÇ£Then I guess our first time would have been in an elevator.ÔÇØ I pull her closer, jaw clenching as her stomach presses against where IÔÇÖm hard enough to slay dragons with my cock.

ÔÇ£Good God,ÔÇØ she mutters, her breath rushing out with this sexy little moan that destroys the last of my self-restraint.

ÔÇ£I would have had you up against the wall,ÔÇØ I say, speaking low so my words are for her and no one else. ÔÇ£But first, I would have made you come, princess. On my fingers, my mouth, my tongue. IÔÇÖve been dreaming about fucking you with my tongue since I left your apartment that first afternoon.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£Me, too,ÔÇØ she whispers, arching closer. ÔÇ£But you have to stop.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£No, I wouldnÔÇÖt have stopped,ÔÇØ I promise, deliberately misunderstanding her, because I need to make that blush staining her cheeks spread across her entire body. ÔÇ£I wouldnÔÇÖt have stopped until you were completely fucking useless, Willoughby. Until youÔÇÖd come so hard your knees were weak and I had to carry you out of the elevator.ÔÇØ


ÔÇ£But I wouldnÔÇÖt have carried you into the party,ÔÇØ I push on. ÔÇ£I would have hit the ground floor button, carried your fine ass straight into a cab, and told the driver to break every traffic law required to get us to my place in five minutes. Because I wouldnÔÇÖt have been able to wait more than five minutes to have you, to be inside of you.ÔÇØ

She trembles against me as her forehead falls to rest against my shoulder. ÔÇ£This is so wrong. So wrong.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£No, itÔÇÖs not,ÔÇØ I insist. ÔÇ£ItÔÇÖs the rightest thing IÔÇÖve felt in so damned long. And as long as you want me, too, I donÔÇÖtÔÇöÔÇØ

ÔÇ£Oh, I do.ÔÇØ Her words send a fierce wave of relief rushing through me. ÔÇ£I want you, Jake. I want you so much I can barely think of anything else.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£And I want you. I want to be inside you so fucking bad, princess,ÔÇØ I whisper, my balls aching miserably between my legs. ÔÇ£I want to feel you come on me. I want you naked and wet andÔÇöÔÇØ

ÔÇ£Screw the pictures.ÔÇØ Her breath rushes out as she grabs a fistful of my shirt and pulls me to a stop at the edge of the dance floor, her eyes hungry and wild. ÔÇ£I need to be alone with you, Falcone. Right fucking now.ÔÇØ

And thatÔÇÖs all I fucking need to hear.

Without another word, I wrap my arm around her waist and aim us both toward the cocktail lounge.
