❤❤ 5 star review of PUCKED by Helena Hunting ❤❤

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

Oh my goodness. I think Helena has just knocked my socks right off with this book. I absolutely loved this book. It was the perfect balance of steam, sass and humor. Helena has created the strangest, quirkiest female lead character I think I've ever read. 

There were so many times during the book that Violet was doing the absolute strangest things, but it was so funny. Or she's so awkward, you can't help but laugh. But Alex, gets her. He loves her odd sense of humor. Violet doesn't want a playboy, but ends up falling for one anyway. We get to see their relationship develop and its both fun and sexy. 

Don't get me wrong, our relationship hits some... Bumps. But Helena makes it flow so easily. She keeps your interested while our H/h work their shit out, all the while still working a little humor into the storyline. 

I think this was such a great story. Highly suggested. 5 stars!
