Publisher's Summary

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.

Love this book! Hilarious, hot, and hockey!

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!

Narration

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.

Why can't we have separate reviews for each narrator?

This book was hysterically funny, with a quirky, awkward, real characters. The female narrator was fantastic. The male narrator was great when he was speaking like someone from the US. Otherwise, he sounded a cockney-Irish-Scottish guy pretending to be Canadian but sounding more confused than anything else. Usually, I look forward to a change in narrator when a new chapter starts. This is the first time I've actually groaned in defeat when the male character started a chapter. If it weren't for how incredibly talented the female narrator was, I would have returned the audiobook and instead read it on my kindle.

Holy accent, Batman!

What was with the male narrator? He was supposed to be performing a Canadian accent, but sounded more like Scottish-British-Jersey boy. He made Alex seem creepy sometimes. Muffy should have narrated the whole book. Don’t let this turn you off from listening, because the story is beyond hilarious! Luckily, the male narrator doesn’t perform much at all.

Great Story but what's with the accent

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.

Great story, horrible male narrator

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!!

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

This book made me laugh a lot! Violet is was snarky and hilarious. Alex was sexy and sweet! She was expecting a one night stand and he knew from the minute they met that he wanted her in his life. Their story was sweet and very sexy! It had its predictable moments with normal romance book drama but the drama wasn't the typical avoidable drama that most books have. The sexy scenes were off the charts hot! I can't wait for book 2 on audio!

The narration was 50/50! She was great, her male and female voices were perfect and she really did the funny snarky comments perfectly. He on the other hand I didn't enjoy. His accent sounded more Irish than Canadian to me, with a few "Eh's" to remind you he was Canadian. He also didn't make him sound very manly, more high school teacher than hockey star.

Muffy was a hit

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.

So disappointed!

I finally got round to Pucked after it’s been in my audible library for so long. Saw so many positive reviews so maybe I’m in a minority but I’ve had to give up at a little over 50% !
If I had to hear the words “beaver” “wang” “jilling off” “monster cock” along with many other childish words, one more time I was going to weep in a darkened room 😤🙈
The main female character is beyond immature with the ridiculous language she keeps using. Honestly.... I don’t even want to insult teenagers by saying it’s more for their genre.... most teenagers I know would even find this book just stupid.
But if you constantly want to read about the h “jilling off her beaver” or looking at her mans “wang” or “monster cock” .. crack on. It just REALLY wasn’t for me.

Absolute witty perfection!

From chapter one I was thoroughly laughing out loud! The witty, chatty style of this book is fantastic!
Well written, fast paced, exquisitely described perfection…

To top it off the performance was absolutely  faultless!!

This is a very high bar for the rest of the series to live up to!

Well worth the credit!

A long winded story lacking any real plot!

This is a 'love' story between a charming young man and a immature, petulant foul mouthed young woman.

It lacks any substance and the constant references to 'beaver, cooter, love stick, love rod' and countless other crass descriptions for both his and her genitals is pathetic.

The story consists of boy meets girl, they have sex, they have sex, she goes in a huff, they have sex, they get caught having sex, she goes off in a huff... Repeat the above for most of the chapters.

The chapter titles are also irritating with long winded, unfunny descriptions.

There are some funny lines in this story but I just feel the author has tried too hard to make this book something it isnt and her portrayal of Violet as a quirky, likeable character just does not show through.

I would recommend you save your money/credit and search for another author to listen to.

Steamy and fast paced

Wow! I have never enjoyed a book to this degree before! I could hear my breath getting faster and racing heart through the steamy bits.
I must say I like the ending too, but no spoilers.
It’s read amazingly and having two characters read, really adds to the visual, even thought it’s read .
I would recommend this to any one who needs to get their fire going 😘 5 stars from me ;-) xx

Female narrator did a great job. Male narrator was a let down.

first pucked I've read

i like ms hunting writing and I like the story and nice bits of humour & quirkiness.
I like the female narrator but unfortunately not the male. I could not do get with Alex when it was Nathan's voice. muffy did a better male voice.

Great female narrator, terrible male narrator

An entertaining story that would have improved if they had just stuck with the female narrator, who perfectly portrayed guys & gals. The make narrator’s accent was bizarre (definitely not Canadian, & had a nasal, teenage quality)

Compelling, hilarious, laugh out loud masterpiece.

Do you love rom coms? Sporting romances?

At first, I was dubious since I love hockey and this was about a hockey romance but damn did Helena pull it off brilliantly.

We meet Violet, an independent and sassy woman. From the first page you fall in love with her, she's absolutely hilarious with all of her shenanigans.

Violet meets captain of her brother's hockey team, Alex. A man with a reputation, one he is happy to have for the sake of his career but one he wants to hide from Violet. He's completely enraptured by her.

He's never met anyone like her but...when you're a superstar hockey player, any kind of relationship is going to have its ups and downs.

Will Alex and Violet make it work?

Compelling, hilarious, laugh out loud masterpiece.

Audiobook voice actors are amazing!!!

AMAZING!

This book was awesome, hilarious and such a good ratio between romance and heartbreak. I found myself laughing out loud at this book and especially loved that it was an audiobook. It has a seriously awesome end to the book and helps prove that not everything has to be perfect. The narration was awesome and fit how - at least for the male protagonist - I saw the character beforehand. I would definitely recommend this book to you if you think you will like it, because I definitely don't regret reading/listening to it, and know you won't too. Enjoy!

Quirky & hilarious read

I laughed A LOT reading this book! I really loved how quirky Violet was, even though she made me cringe in second hand embarrassment with her actions & word vomit sometimes lol. I also really loved how caring & gentle Alex was with Violet. There are lots of steamy scenes basically from the beginning! I really enjoyed the journey to their HEA.

Narration - Muffy was fantastic, she really brought Violet to life. I thought she did fantastic with her Alex voice as well. I struggled to keep up with John as Alex though, I found myself having to rewind and reread a lot of sentences but I also have trouble retaining information when reading so it might have just been me!

I’ll definitely be looking into the rest of Helena’s books!

Male narrator was a let down

The female narrator was good, however the male narrator had an Irish accent and didn’t fit the bill for the hot-as-hell Canadian.
