❤❤ 4.5 star review of PUCKED OVER by Helena Hunting ❤❤


Lily LeBlanc isn’t versed in the art of casual sex, but after seven years in an on-again, off-again relationship, she’s definitely willing to give it a shot. And who better to try it with than her best friend’s boyfriend’s best friend? What could possibly go wrong?

NHL player, Randy Ballistic, lives up to his last name on the ice and in the bedroom. His best friend and teammate has recently given up the puck bunnies and traded them in for a real girlfriend. And she just happens to have a seriously feisty, extra-hot best friend on the rebound. Randy’s more than happy to be Lily’s spring board back into the dating scene. 

But casual sex is only casual until those pesky things called emotions get involved. Once that happens, someone’s bound to get pucked over.

this was a great 4.5 star read for me and let me break it down for you just why that is. 

first, can I just say how spot on and amazingly this cover fits this story?!? I mean, its literally the perfect Randy. 

okay moving on... the humor. Helena has done am amazing job with this Romantic Comedy. there were so many times during the story where humor could fall flat, but it didn't. and humor not only from Lily or Balls, bit we have drunk Violet to laugh at again. really any time the girls get together and alcohol is involved. 

"that was too far wasn't it" "yeah baby" he nods. "you saw the line and bulldozed right over it."

there were times when one of the characters literally had me chuckling out loud. people always look at you funny when they don't know why you're laughing. 

it wasnt only the humor that made me rate this 4.5 stars. it was also the emotional aspect of it. how Lily helped Randy with his insecurities, but also how he helped her with the same. but it was how they did it. how they helped build each other back up. 

I loved how Helena makes me laugh while reading a book, but I also find myself randomly smiling too. I just think the flow, writing style, storyline and delivery were spot on. another great book in a fabulous series.

Pucked Links and Summary  

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

Pucked Up Links and Summary

Miller “Buck” Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed up front teeth. After five years in the NHL, deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies, Miller has decided he’s ready for a girlfriend. A real, non-bunny girlfriend to take on dates, and not jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation.

Miller thinks he’s found that woman in his teammate’s sister. Except, unlike team captain and all-around nice guy Alex Waters—who happens to date his stepsister, Miller’s media reputation as a manwhore is well earned. Beyond that minor detail, Miller doesn’t know the first thing about relationships or the time and effort they require.

Miller learns—eventually—that if he wants to make Sunshine “Sunny” Waters fall for him, he's going to have to do a whole lot more than show her his stick skills in the bedroom.
