With a famous NHL player for a step-brother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation many hockey stars come with. She’s smart enough to steer clear of those hot, well-built boys with unparalleled stamina. That is until she meets the legendary team captain—Alex Waters.
Violet isn’t interested in his pretty, beat-up face, or his rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet’s previous misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes more than just a hot body with a face to match.
In what can only be considered a complete lapse in judgment, Violet finds out just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. But what starts out as a one-night stand, quickly turns into something more. Post-night of orgasmic magic, Alex starts to call, and text, and e-mail and send extravagant—and quirky—gifts, making him difficult to ignore, and even more difficult not to like.
The problem is, the media portrays Alex as a total player, and Violet doesn’t want to be part of the game.
Melanie’s 5-effer-fluvin’ STARS Review:
I am IN LOVE!!! I’m seeing BIG bold red hearts everywhere and I’m riding such a high right now… Floating on the infamous cloud nine after reading Helena Hunting’s, Pucked. The author cast a spell on me and I cannot seem to get Violet and Alex out of my mind. I am so PUCKED!!!
Everything about this book, from the very beginning to the very end had me entertained in the best way possible. Foregoing my minimum 7 hours of beauty rest, I knew I was going to be in trouble the next day. What made it even worse was the MASSIVE book hangover I was sporting. That deep depression heavily weighing over me. I couldn’t accept that it was over and I swear, all I wanted to do was whip out my Kindle and re-read the whole thing all over again. Yes, it held that magical formula—the sort that has literary junkies like myself wishing to unread just so I can experience it all over again. UGH, I effer-fluvin’ LOOOOOOOOOVE that feeling!!!
Pucked had the triple threat—funny, sexy, and so dangbit romantic. I was laughing like an obnoxious hyena during so many parts in this book. Violet is one fantastic heroine. I loved everything about her—her inability to filter the stuff that came out of her mouth made her just that much more real and I thought she was a breath of fresh air. Unlike so many heroines I’ve read, she in a league of her own. I couldn’t get enough of her. And with such an amazing heroine, Helena Hunting gives us Alex Waters, a sexy as sin hockey player, the team captain to boot. OMG this guy took my breath away and the things he’d say and do to Violet had my heart hammering against my chest. I can’t tell you how many times I swooned over these two. They had the perfect chemistry—intense and hot for each other every second they were together. They will have you panting and moaning alongside them. The flush that traveled from the tips of my toes to my cheeks, relentless. The hottie tottie scenes were addictive. Trust me, your lady bits will definitely be feeling happy. The romance that ensues had me melting, turning into a puddle of mush, with a BIG old smile plastered across my face.
This book is everything and more than what I could have asked for. It’s the sort that just makes me feel HAPPY, GIDDY, and SATISFIED. Pucked has totally pucked me over—how do I move on from this book hangover?! Helena Hunting made cackle, had me feeling hot and bothered, and found myself falling head over heels for Violet and Alex. These two have made my top favorite couples of all time. I cannot tell you enough just how much I loved, loved, loved this book. Pucked is a must read and I can’t wait to read it again and again and again.
