***The 1st standalone novel in The Pucked Series***
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.
I love Helena Hunting’s writing and was anxiously awaiting the audiobook release of Pucked. The story didn’t disappoint at all. I loved Violet’s awkwardness and her complete lack of a filter. Alex, while he had his douche moments, was a great guy overall. He and Violet complemented each other perfectly! Muffy made a wonderful Violet; she nailed all of Violet’s quirks and awkward outbursts; however, Nathan didn’t sound like any Canadian I’ve ever met or heard. I felt at times his accent was a bit too forced. He didn’t kill the story for me per se, but I wouldn’t have minded if Muffy narrated the whole book. Her male voice was done quite well. Overall, I really loved this one and I’m happy the audiobook releases of Pucked Up and Pucked Over are here as well. I’m ready for the Yeti and Randy Balls!
