How steamy is it? Hot Damn

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.

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.

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!

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!!

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.

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.

Pucked #1

This book was really good Violent reminds me of myself, with the weird things that she be saying. Lol. I Ike how Alex liked her even with her weirdness and didn't try to change her and make her stop, to me both of them was hilarious together lol. And made a cute couple. I also plan in getting books 2-6 because I definitely want to know about Sunny and Buck situation. And the others.

Fantastic

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.

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!!!

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.
looking fwd to more pucked

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)

love love

Violet and her over sharing, nonchalant and just somewhat blasé look at things about dating an ice hockey player again is the best thing, but of course life intervening in the form of Alex and his nerdy-jock ways had my wires crossed the best way. They fumbled through the romance, being on the spot light dynamics and if that locker room sex doesn't thaw the heart don't know what it, plus Alex's dick graduates from being called a 'sniffie' to 'monster cock' who stars in dreams wearing a cape with a moustache.
Violet's playfulness just makes every dork out there proud. own it.

Wickedly Funny

I loved this story. It was the first book by Helena Hunting that I've ever read and it was brilliant. I loved the Violet and Alex and I loved the female narration of Violet. The only downside, when it was Alex's POV, I wish they had got the female narrator to voice her lines rather than the actor playing Alex, and visa versa. But overall, a great book and highly recommend.

Great story. Not great male narration.

I really loved the story but the audible version was marred for me by the male narrator. The accents were terrible (half the time he sounded Scottish not Canadian) and the voice was high pitched. The female narrator was excellent and even her performance of the male voice was better than the actual male narrator.
