The first 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. But 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.

Before purchasing this book I read the reviews and thought that the male reader couldn't really be that terrible. WRONG! It was dreadful! If the reader makes or breaks a book for you think strongly before giving in to this. I loved the female reader and the story though.
I have been so excited for this book to make it to audible. It was not a disappointment!! Helena Hunting is a rockstar. I laughed out loud many times. The female narrator was fantastic. But the male narrator was horrific!! I mean, it had the potential to nearly ruin the book. I cringed the entire chapters that he read. It was seriously awful!!

I'm an author and narrator of books just like this and I gotta say, it's the best, funniest audio book ever!
The characters were quirky and hilarious beginning to end but WTF with the "Canadian" accent. Irish, Scottish, Welsh. Not the sure what the hell that was. It might have passed for mangled maritime but sure as hell not Guelph. Get it right or don't bother.
I absolutely loved this audiobook. It was smoking hot and laugh out loud funny. My only issue was the male narrator. I would have preferred that Muffy Newtown narrated the entire book. Can't wait for book 2!
There's so much greatness and I'm typing from my phone so I can't list it all... I loved almost everything about this book... this author is a 1st for me but I am an instant fan... I laughed so hard....
This narration team is also a 1st for me and I must say I love Muffy! Nathan on the other hand sucked... his nasal voice was irritating. I've refunded books and/or couldn't finish them for bad narration like his BUT this book is so well written and Muffy narrates 95% of the book I dealt with Nathan's horrid narration.
Say something about yourself!
I loved reading this book. Violet is awesome & there is a lot to be said when I am laughing before the end of the first chapter. Alex & Violet are perfect for each other & I thoroughly enjoyed reading all their escapades.
This book was even better as an audible then reading it myself!
Read/Listen, Review and Recommend!
Don’t get me wrong. I enjoyed this book. It was light, very humorous, and HELLO Canadian’s!! I didn’t find it a deep read. It was surface and fun and flirty just the right kind of book to read in between those dark and twisty reads.
Being as I am Canadian, I loved the narrators BOTH of them. It wasn’t to hooky. But if I say eh like that someone smack me lol. Just kidding.. not really
I loved Violets wit, lord have mercy she cracked me up. And all the beaver talk. Gosh that was funny. I will never think of “jilling it” without thinking of her I swear to god.
I very much enjoyed the brother, sister relationship between Buck and Violet. Even with the STEP, in there it was very much like they had grown up together made for good dynamic.
Alex oh what to say about this fella that Violet hasn’t already said… esp about The MC..
I do like how things went down with him mom. And even after all the “other stuff” how he makes it right.
I also LOVED that he was a figure skater, and not just for a little bit of time but for a long time. That was really neat. I don’t’ know why I liked it I just did. |
‘Those pretty, pretty eyes bore into mine the way they did the first time I saw him play.’
In the audio… I cracked up the most about 13 mins till the end so much I had tears from laughing so hard. I won’t give anything away just that was FUNNNY… yes it need more N’s ;)
*All my Reviews are 100% honest and my own.*
Absolutely loved this book from the get go. Laugh out loud funny. Fantastic story. Super hot characters. Love sports books, and hockey is my most favourite. A super fun wonderfully sexy romance that I didn't want to end.
"Great start to a new series"
Really hilarious at times 😀the super MC had me laughing out loud especially with the added cape😀that said Violet and Alex were charming and the first part of their story had me intrigued right until the end. I've discovered a new author I love which is Always a plus !!!
