Review – Pucked (Pucked, #1) by Helena Hunting


With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. So of course she isn’t interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet’s misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match. Suffering from a complete lapse in judgment, Violet discovers just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants.

Violet believes her night of orgasmic magic with Alex is just that: one night. But Alex starts to call. And text. And email and send extravagant – and quirky – gifts. Suddenly he’s too difficult to ignore and nearly impossible 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.

The first standalone in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Pucked series.

Pucked was so freaking sexy, hilarious, and swoon-worthy, and it made me smile and laugh so many times, I lost count! The storyline and characters were phenomenal and highly memorable, and I loved Helena Hunting’s writing style and sense of humor.

   I’m a sucker for sports romance, especially hockey romance, but sometimes it’s hard to find one that balances every aspect well. Helena Hunting did not have that problem. Pucked had the perfect balance of hockey and swoon-worthy romance that left this reader more than satisfied. ;)

   I loved Alex and Violet. These two were an absolute delight. I loved their personalities and smoking HOT chemistry together, and how most of their relationship progressed throughout. It was rocky at times, but very enjoyable and entertaining. I loved reading from both Alex and Violet’s points of view, and all of the their witty, playful, dirty, and hilarious banter and interactions with each other. The secondary characters were fantastic as well, and provided plenty of laughs and entertainment.

   With lovable characters, an entertaining plot, witty and hilarious banter, and plenty of steamy times, Pucked was a definite MUST READ! I absolutely loved Alex and Violet’s story, and can’t wait to read more standalone sports romantic comedies in the Pucked series!
