As an NHL player, relationships haven't been my thing. Shrouded in secrecy and speculation, they never last very long. But then that's what happens when you require an NDA before the first date. Until Charlene. She's like a firefly. She's elusive, and if you catch her she'll burn bright, but keeping her trapped dulls her fire and dims her beauty. I caught her. And as much as I might want to keep her, I'll never put the lid on her jar. Not at the risk of losing her. So I've let her set the rules in our relationship.

From the start of this series, I have always been intrigued by Darren and Charlene's mysterious relationship. Where the others are often loud and lack a personal filter, Darren and Charlene have always been tight lipped and secretive. This final book in the series did not disappoint and Sebastian York and Stella Bloom did an amazing job bringing these characters to life. York gave Darren the perfect amount of alpha protectiveness and vulnerability, while Bloom was charming and playful as Charlene. Though this is book 7 in the series, it can be read/listened to as a standalone. It would be best enjoyed and appreciated however, if you have read the previous books.

All of Helena Hunting's trademark wit and laugh out loud moments are there, but there are tender and serious moments in Pucked Love as well. I loved the versatility of the narrators to switch from significant and meaningful to lighthearted and hilarious. I don't want to reveal too much, but learning the history and baggage that both Darren and Charlene carry explained so much about their personalities and relationship. I think Darren may be my favorite Pucked hero and honestly, you can't beat the cover of this book/audio ;) It's always fun catching up with the entire Pucked gang and their cameos (big and small) were a wonderful addition. I also loved the overall message of family (blood related or not) and how it played such a huge role in the book. The epilogue made my heart so full and though it's bittersweet to see this series end, I'm happy with the journey Helena Hunting has taken us readers/listeners on. I do hope that this is not good bye forever though and would always be happy to see more from the Pucked world! #Darlene was worth the wait!

I'm NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance "Romance". I'm notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I'm a player on and off the ice. I'm the one women with no inhibitions want. Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don't know how to be any other way. I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does.

What an emotional and powerful addition to the Pucked series! Lance's story captivated me from the start and was much deeper than I ever anticipated. Watching his walls come down and seeing beyond his reputation for partying hard and adventurous sexual exploits (often with multiple women) was both heartbreaking and uplifting.

Lance was such a complex hero. His evolution and progression kept me completely engrossed in the story. The trauma of his childhood and past experiences have broken him so badly that at times it felt like there was no light at the end of the tunnel. My heart was aching as the pieces of his story came together and were revealed. Though there are lighter moments, Pucked Off isn't as carefree or playful as the previous books. There are hard truths and emotionally charged events that left me reeling. Through it all though, the joy and the grief, there is always the possibility of hope. The message of loving yourself and not placing your happiness on others was so powerful.

The heroine (who I won't name in case faithful Pucked fans want to be surprised) could not have been more perfect and really brought Lance's story full circle. The chemistry between them made the build up painfully sweet, but so very satisfying. I truly loved the heroine and how caring and mature she was. Her ability to sense and understand Lance's needs and insecurities and help him heal was wonderful, but I also respected her for standing up for herself and her sense of self preservation. You won't be able to stop yourself from rooting for this couple to find their way to a HEA. While reading/listening to Pucked Off I often heard the song Only Us from the musical Dear Evan Hansen in my head.

I don't need you to sell me on reasons to want you
I don't need you to search for the proof that I should
You don't have to convince me
You don't have to be scared you're not enough
'Cause what we've got going is good
I don't need more reminders of all that's been broken
I don't need you to fix what I'd rather forget
Clear the slate and start over
Try to quiet the noises in your head
We can't compete with all that
So what if it's us?
What if it's us
And only us
And what came before won't count anymore or matter?
Can we try that?
What if it's you
And what if it's me
And what if that's all that we need it to be
And the rest of the world falls away?
What do you say?

I both listened to the audiobook and ebook of this and again really enjoyed the narration by Jacob Morgan and Rose Dioro. Though I'm not completely sold on Jacob Morgan's Scottish accent, the narration was still amazing and heartfelt, especially Rose Dioro's performance. Definitely one of my favorite books of the series.

Randy Ballistic and Lily LeBlanc are head-over-heels, bed-breakingly, screaming orgasmically in love. But even they have their challenges, mostly outside of the bedroom.With the off-season coming to a close and the boys gearing up for training camp, one more weekend of fun is the perfect way to welcome the new season.The entire crew piles into vehicles and drives to Alex and Violet’s Chicago cottage for a few days of relaxation - and hopefully a chance for Randy to shake the anxiety that’s been plaguing him.

Loved this little sequel novella to Randy and Lily's story! It was a fun addition to the series and gives readers a little more insight into this insatiable couple. I loved seeing Randy and Lily's relationship grow and Lily especially come into her own. The story takes place a little after Forever Pucked, but prior to the epilogue in that book. There isn't too much drama in this one, but there's lots of sexy times and laugh out loud moments. I love how close all the characters are and that we get updates and plenty of page time with them too, even if they aren't the main characters. I have so many questions about Darren and Charlene now though and can't wait for their story!

I both read and listened to the audiobook of this one and I can't say it enough that Jacob Morgan and Rose Dioro are perfect as Randy and Lily! It's no secret that I love Jacob Morgan's voice, so Randy's chapters were especially enjoyable! I will never look at red satin ribbon the same! ;) Randy and Lily are my favorite Pucked couple, so I don't think I will ever tire reading about them. Though I can't say that this novella was needed for their story, I am happy that they got this HFN continuation. Pucked Under is a fun, almost no heavy lifting read/listen. Fans of Randy and Lily will not be disappointed!

Being engaged to Alex Waters, team captain and the highest paid NHL player in the league, is awesome. How could it not be? In addition to being an amazing hockey player, he's an incurable romantic with an XL heart - and an XXL hockey stick in his pants. And he knows how to use it. Incredibly, orgasmically well. Alex is the whole package and more. Literally. Like his package is insane. Total world record holder material.

This was a sexy and hilarious continuation to Alex and Violet's story. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments thanks to Violet's lack of filter and Alex and Violet's mothers. I can't even imagine discussing (let alone being present!) for some of the overshares that take place in this book! It's not all laughs though and there are some truly emotional and touching chapters. It really solidified the love that these two share for each other and gave a beautiful glimpse into the future. The ending and how everything came together was perfect for Violet and Alex and the lack of hives was a definite bonus. Alex is especially swoony and sweet (and vulnerable) in Forever Pucked and there is no lack of Super MC and Beaver action! ;) Fans of this original Pucked couple will not be disappointed with this one!

I loved that all the other Pucked couples and characters like Randy, Lily, Miller, Sunny, Charlene, Darren, and Lance also make appearances. I especially enjoyed Sunny's surprise announcement and also all the mystery surrounding Charlene and Darren's relationship and her pearl necklace. Lance's unexpected role in the wedding was a great treat. My curiosity is in overdrive now for Lance's and Charlene and Darren's stories!

I switched back and forth between the audio and ebook versions of this. I felt that both Jeremy York and Emily Michaels did a good job narrating, but I can't say that I loved them as Alex and Violet. Emily Michaels' voice didn't quite match the spunk and quirk of Violet and though I liked Jeremey York more, sometimes his performance felt flat. Because of this, things just felt a little off for me and I found myself reading the book more than listening. It was still an ok listen, but I'm not sure it's worth a credit unless you're a big Alex and Violet lover.

Picture this - I’m ready to win back the love of my life, and I’m going big this time. We’re talking boom box, sing her name in the rain, let the whole damn neighborhood know I'm good and ready this time around. After all, if you're going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops. There’s only one little problem. My college girlfriend isn't the one who shows up when I play my "I'll do anything to win you back" tune. The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn’t live here anymore.

This was a funny and sweet romance that pays homage to the wonder of romcoms. I loved all the 80's movie references and nods to pop culture. Finley and Kyler (Tom) were hilariously quirky and it was so much fun watching life imitate art. Joe Arden's performance was beyond amazing and he could not have been more perfectly cast as the lovable and slightly clueless Tom. He played the endearing and adorkable nerdy hero so well, but also delivered when things got hot and heavy. Joe Arden and Andi Arndt are fast becoming one of my very favorite narrating pairs. Even though Unzipped is not duet narration, I did enjoy that the text messages are cut together like it is. The story itself doesn't reinvent the romcom wheel, but rather highlights the parts audiences love so much when they watch these films. There isn't a lot of drama or angst which I appreciated. I couldn't wipe the smile from my face while listening to this one and my heart was left all nice and gooey (as it should be after a romcom). Fans of Lauren Blakely will not be disappointed!

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.

I loved Randy and Lily's story! I both listened and read this one and I think they are my favorite Pucked couple so far. I couldn't wait for their story after Pucked Up and knew the sparks would fly when these two got together. They had incredible chemistry and listening to their story unfold on audio only amplified their connection. I found their fears and concerns very relatable, especially Lily's. Even though she is about the same age as Sunny (the heroine in Pucked Up and Lily's BFF), I found her much more mature. Yes, things start off between Randy and Lily because of their physical attraction, but it was so beautiful how they gradually shifted into something more tender and sweet. I loved how they each saw themselves as broken or flawed, but to the other they couldn't be more perfect. They had fantastic banter and lots of cheeky innuendo, which helped lighten the story while also adding to the sexual tension. Randy and Lily complemented each other very well. Sure there are missteps along the way, but they made sense considering each character's history. I appreciated that the drama resolved almost as quickly as it appeared and wasn't drawn out.

I really enjoyed the narration by Jacob Morgan (swoon) and Rose Dioro. They both did a wonderful job overall with this friends with benefits romance, but I did feel that there were times their tone didn't quite match the emotion of the scene. I also liked checking in with Alex, Violet, Miller, and Sunny again, but I will admit that it's Lance who has me most intrigued. I can't wait to continue on with the series!

Ian Chase broke my heart at 17, and I’ve spent the last 18 years hating him for it. He makes it easy, with his smart mouth and playboy lifestyle - which I unfortunately have to observe since he lives behind me. Every time I see him climbing out of his pool, practically naked and unreasonably sexy, my blood boils. I’ve always loved to loathe him. I never planned to need him.

I am a huge fan of both Melanie Harlow and Corinne Michaels. I have read/listened to many of their individual books and loved them. Perhaps that set my expectations too high, because this book was a big miss for me. The narration by Andi Arndt and Tor Thom is the only thing that kept me going. Both did superb jobs voicing both male and female characters and I especially enjoyed Andi Arndt's performance as London. She delivered London's barbs and taunts to Ian perfectly, but also showed such emotion and vulnerability during the more difficult scenes.

Honestly, my biggest problem with the book was Ian. I kept waiting and hoping that he would be redeemed, but sadly it never really happened. He was incredibly frustrating and acted like a huge jerk for the majority of the book. Throw in the fact that he's completely an unapologetic manwhore and I was pretty much done. We're supposed to feel sympathy for him because he sacrificed his happiness and broke his own heart so that London could follow her dreams, but all I felt for him was rage and annoyance. He lived his life, enjoying it to the fullest, even married (and divorced), but you want me to believe that he did all that and treated her so poorly over the years because of his love for her? That if he couldn't have her the way he wanted, then hate was the only solution? Come on.

All the back and forth got old quick and for people who are in their mid to late 30's, they were often very immature. I wish I could say that I loved London, but sadly her willingness to be a doormat and accept any scraps of affection Ian threw her way made me lose a lot of respect for her. Every time it seemed like she was going to grow a spine or when she actually stood up to Ian, the very next scene would have her saying sorry, forgiving him, or enabling his selfish behavior. On top of all this, of course she was also essentially celibate for the 17-18 YEARS her and Ian were separated. The only time her sexual history comes up is when Ian is making a crude comment or joke about it (or rather the lack of it).

The best part of the book was probably Chris, Morgan, and Ruby, even though the circumstances that brought them together as a family was tragic. The epilogue was sweet, but overall the ending felt rushed and forced. The impromptu detour was very cliche for a story set in Vegas and had me rolling my eyes (again) at Ian's complete 180. Unfortunately, it was all just too little, too late for this second chance/enemies to lovers romance.

I really love second chance romances (especially childhood friends to lovers), but this one just didn't quite hook me the way that I'd hoped. Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross were fantastic however, and I loved all the emotion and feeling they put into these characters. The duet style was amazing, especially for the more heated scenes. Even though I had some issues with the decisions the characters made/were making, I couldn't wait to find out how Mo and Rhett's story was going to end. I also really loved Mo's relationship with her father and some of those scenes had me reaching for a tissue to dry my eyes.

I think the biggest issue for me, is that I found myself more frustrated and annoyed at Rhett and Mo for their lack of communication than in love with them. So much heartbreak could have been avoided with some honesty and a conversation. I understand that they were young and that young love is often all consuming and explosive, but I still found it hard to believe that they wouldn't have fought a little harder to at least have closure/tried to reach out to the other in the 6 years that they've been apart. I also had a hard time with Mo essentially groveling and begging for Rhett's forgiveness. Mistakes were made by both of them, but it was Rhett who got angry and acted like he was the only one who had been wronged. Add in the fact that Rhett enjoyed all the buckle bunnies he wanted while Mo abstained completely, and I just had a hard time believing in their love. I did like that as the story progressed, both characters grew and matured. Mo started thinking about her dreams and how to go after them, while Rhett stopped only thinking of himself/acting selfish. Overall, this was an enjoyable listen and I liked it enough to want to continue on with the series.

There are a million reasons why Miles Hart isn't the man I should date but allow me to enumerate the top three: He's friends with my brother; he's a single dad; and he's a sexy, in-demand rock star. He might as well wear an off-limits, totally unavailable, and don't-even-attempt-to-ride-this-ride sign. And there's one more little itty-bitty thing - he's never asked me on a date. That is, until he asks me to be his plus-one when his band plays at his high school reunion. It shouldn't be a big deal. After all, we're just friends, and no one is giving us our own hashtag.

Lauren Blakely saved the best for last with Once Upon a Wild Fling! I absolutely loved Miles and Roxy's story! It was sweet, flirty, sexy, and adorkably fun! Even though these characters were introduced in the previous books in this series, it can certainly be enjoyed as a standalone. Sebastian York and Andi Arndt bring Miles and Roxy to life so well. They were the perfect duo for the Heartbreakers series and I loved experiencing each of these stories in audio.

One thing I love about the Heartbreakers series is that the characters are a little older and more mature. They've already lived through some of life's ups and downs and have come out stronger (though somewhat scarred) from their battles. The characters know what they want and there isn't any unnecessary drama or back and forth. Once Upon a Wild Fling was part friends to lovers, brother's little sister taboo, and single parent romance. Miles and Roxy had amazing chemistry and I loved how devoted they both were to their families and friends. I loved their sexy banter and innuendo and how their attraction was always simmering under the surface. Ben was absolutely adorable and I have to say stole the show any time he was on the page. There is some angst, but it's understandable considering the baggage and history that Miles and Roxy have when it comes to relationships. I loved that the drama wasn't overblown though and that both recognized their errors and worked quickly to make their intentions clear. The epilogue was incredibly sweet and was a wonderful ending for this blended family. I wouldn't mind an extended epilogue further down the road though with updates on all of the Hart siblings. ;)

Another thing I love about these audios is that the text messages are read in duet style narration. Sebastian and Andi's voices mesh seamlessly! The bonus novella Little Big Rock performed by 4 (YES, 4 narrators) in the duet style at the end of the book was a fantastic treat! Each character had their own voice and you really can't get any better than hearing Sebastian York, Andi Arndt, Joe Arden, and Erin Mallon all together.

Once Upon a Wild Fling is a light and feel good rom com that you're sure to love!

This was another laugh out loud romcom by Helena Hunting with amazing narration by Joe Arden. He was perfect as sexy and slightly clueless Miller. Normally I love have dual POV in books, but this time having the entire book in Miller's POV was an added bonus. Joe Arden captured Miller's unique blend of sexy and vulnerable and also voiced the female characters wonderfully as well.

The story was hit and miss for me. As much as I loved Miller, he really did make some questionable decisions that had me rolling my eyes. It was the heroine Sunny though that almost tanked this one for me. She was sweet in a deer in the headlights sort of way, but her immaturity and lack of communication with Miller were beyond frustrating. Miller is in no way perfect, but he was trying. Sure he stumbled, but I liked his character growth throughout the book. Sunny on the other hand, repeated the same mistakes over and over again. I understand these characters are young and are still finding their way, but I never truly felt the connection between them and couldn't figure out what flipped the switch for Miller to go from a bunny lover to monogamy. There just didn't seem to be a lot of substance between them, besides physical chemistry. The best part of the book was definitely Miller's relationship with Violet (though the Yeti jokes were a little over the top) and I also liked getting to know Randy and Lily better. Alex unfortunately acted terribly in this book and I was proud of Violet for standing up for Miller. I'm really hoping Alex redeems himself as the series goes on. Honestly, I'm not even sure Sunny and Miller's happy for now ending will even stick since I'm not sure Sunny has really changed. Overall, this was an enjoyable listen thanks to Joe Arden, but all the back and forth, jealousy, and insecurity got old pretty quick.
