PUCKED - Helena Hunting (PUCKED #1)

Published Date: May 3, 2015
Genre: Romance
Synopsis: 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.

"Our relationship isn't magically perfect after Alex apologizes and we exchange I love you's. We're figuring things out and having fun while we're doing it--and each other." I laughed a bit too much at this statement. Violet is very blunt with so she talks and yes, she is a dirty talker so prepare yourselves for her. Most people would avoid dirty talkers especially if it's not in the bed. But she is one tough mother ducker. Yeah. You read that right.

This brings me to another point. Not all relationships are perfect. They never will be. Underlying, there are problems surfacing but you won't be able to tell from the outside. But if you can recognize it from the inside, you have a chance at fixing it. Relationships aren't magically perfect. That's a utopia. No such thing.

I was laughing throughout this entire book right from the moment Alex and Violet met each other because they were polar opposites but can you blame them? Opposites attract and boy, were the sparks flying everywhere as soon as their eyes melted right into each other. 

"His love is the best gift, filling my heart, giving breath to a future I can't wait to start living. 'My favorite thing in the world is here'

My heart started beating faster at this moment in the book. I sighed and yes, clutched my kindle to my chest. Wouldn't you want someone to say that to you? Sigh.  Are you kidding me Alex Waters? You make it impossible for real relationships to amount to the stuff that you say and do for Violet for real men. Sigh. Book boyfriend. That's for sure. My eyes are on you and I cannot wait for PUCKED Up to see where the rest of the gang develops. 

"I'm so glad you fought for me. You're the best chance I've taken."

Oh swoooooooon. Stop it. Stop it. Impossible goals. I rate this a solid 4 out of 5 stars. PUCKED Up to come soon. 

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
