~ Pucked Up by Helena Hunting ~
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Date of Publication: October 25th 2015
Miller “Buck” Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed up front teeth, and he was drafted into the NHL during his first year of college. After five years of deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies across the Continental US and parts of Canada, Miller is ready for a girlfriend. A real girlfriend of the non-bunny variety. One he takes on dates and doesn’t jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation.
Miller thinks he’s found that woman in his teammate’s sister. Except, unlike Alex Waters, center, team captain and all round nice guy—who happens to be dating his step-sister—Miller’s manwhore reputation is well earned, and not blown out of proportion by the media. Beyond that minor detail, Miller doesn’t know the first thing about having a girlfriend. But he’s determined to make it happen.
What he doesn’t take into account is the amount of time and effort relationships require, or that constantly letting bunnies take selfies with him to post all over social media isn’t going to win him any points in the boyfriend department. Miller learns—not so quickly—that if he wants to make Sunshine “Sunny” Waters fall for him, he going to have to do a whole lot more than show her his stick skills in the bedroom.
~ My Review ~
~ Book provided by author in exchange for my honest opinion
I don’t really know what I should write in my review for this book, other than: awesome! 🙂
Pucked Up was as good as Pucked and I can’t really decided which one I liked better, so I decided it’s a tie.
It was hilarious, sweet, dirty and absolutely fun to read. It made me laugh as much as Pucked did.
The main characters were realistic and took their time finding together. Their arguments were the best and I felt pity for Buck, because he always seemed to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. Poor guy.
And Sunny. I loved Sunny, she is super adorable and has to endure a lot of shit from Buck, before he finally gets his stuff together.
Also I liked about this book that we got to see the couple of the previous book and that they didn’t reach infinite happiness just because they got a HEA. No, they still fight. Bad! And I liked that, because let’s be honest, we all fight with our significant other from time to time, right? We aren’t always living in our bubble of happiness.
I really love this book and really, really, really want to read the next one in the series. Like right now. Also I’m curious to find out who it will feature. I have my guess, but we will see. Is it 2016 yet?
