Review: Pucked (Pucked #1) by Helena Hunting


Pucked (Pucked #1) by Helena Hunting

Release Date: May 3, 2015



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. 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.



5 out of 5 stars

Sexy, sweet, and hysterically funny! Fantastic read! I loved Alex and Violet!

I absolutely loved Violet. She has THE BEST internal dialogue ever. So freaking funny! I loved her from the start and couldn't get enough. The things that would come out of her mouth were classic. Totally loved Alex too! He and Violet had great chemistry and just fit together perfectly with their personalities. I loved their playfulness together too. Alex could seem so gentlemanly but beneath all that he was super sexy and a little bit naughty. He totally got Violet’s humor and he could take it and dish it out.  These two together were super HOT. Loved that unrestrained lust exploding! Hello locker room! Scorching!

I adored this story of them coming together. It was so sweet and steamy all rolled into one. I thought it had a great pace and build. I was smiling the entire time! It was highly entertaining and couldn't put it down. I had some really big laugh-out-loud moments, some of those scene, were freaking awesome. There were also some angsty moments at the end that made me pretty much ignore everyone and everything because I had to know what was going to happen next.

All the other characters were great as well. The parents meeting one another was hysterical. Buck was something else. I didn't know what to think of him in the beginning but by the end I was thinking he was a pretty great, stand up guy. Great ending! Loved the epilogue! Excellent mix of sexy and funny with bits of vulnerability. It was just a fantastically solid read that made me really happy.

I adore how versatile Helena Hunting is in her writing. She's a master and this was fantastic!

Hayden and Tenley are just so messed up and broken and I loved watching them come together as the details of their past came to light. The pain of both their pasts was very emotional to read. Nothing was ever as I expected and it made it all that more appealing and intriguing. All the layers in this story and and the feelings it elicited from me was off the charts. A must read series!
