Publisher's Summary

Available in audio first, a sizzling new stand-alone by New York Times best-selling author Helena Hunting! 

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. 

But as long hidden secrets expose us both, I discover exactly how fragile Charlene is, and how much I need her. 

We're all broken. We're all messed up. Some more than others. Me more than most.

Worth The Wait

As a Pucked Series fan, I have wanted Darren’s story since the beginning. It was everything and I couldn’t be happier.

Darren and Charlene have been a mystery. I enjoyed getting to know the real deal behind their relationship, and their personal stories. Charlene is wonderful, but Darren. Oh sweet Darren. He is on the top of the list of ultimate book boyfriends.

The narration was amazing and kept me engaged. Do yourself a favor and listen to this story.

Couldn’t Funish

I listen to at least 3 books a week. I couldn’t finish this one. The story was worth maybe an hour of listening. I like narrators with less high pitched voices. The story also lacked a compelling “hook.” Maybe it was all revealed in the end but I’ll never know.

Must read

I have loved this whole Pucked world Helena created, I’m so impressed with the heart and laughs she continues to create! But I was not prepared for her to take it to the next level with Darren and Charlene- wow! Great characters and some how so unique yet perfect!

Pucking Awesome

With each book in this series Helena Hunting has upped her game and delivered an unbelievable tale of an unconventional family. They stick up for and hold one another accountable while dealing with the constant pucks life throws at them. This is by far one of my favorite books ever written.

The perfect Climax

This is the final book in Helena Hinting's Pucked series and it was worth every second of the wait. Darren and Charlene are introduced very early on in Pucked as they are the besties of Alex and Vi and they figure prominently through the series - Helena has done a masterful job of leaving many, many misleading clues about these 2 in all the previous books but the reality is just a million times better.

These two damaged people are so the missing parts of each other and their journey to discover this is amazing.

I look forward to listening to this over and over and over again

Secrets never stay buried

Darren and Char both come from troubled pasts. They are exactly what the other needs. I enjoyed watching their relationship evolve and them become what the other needed. I hope to see more from this world.

Humor, heat, and heart...and hockey! 5+ stars!

Okay, allow me to get this out of my system before I start getting into the nitty-gritty of my review for this sixth full-length Pucked book: SQUEEEEEEEEE!!! Pucked Love was...everything. Seriously. Oh, I knew the humor that this series is known for was going to be very much present, and indeed, it was. Then there was the heat, and boy, oh boy, was it absolutely hot. I'm talking sizzling here. Maybe have your AC or an electric fan handy while you're reading. See, humor and heat are part and parcel of all things Pucked. One other thing that's a given with this series? Heart. Le sigh, how this not only sated my need for angst but also took pieces of my heart with everything DarLene faced.

There are a number of twists in this book, a couple I saw coming but most leaving me gobsmacked. These twists don't just involve Darren and Charlene either, though naturally, majority are tied to them. Of course, the Pucked gang is present and everyone accounted for--Alex and Violet Waters, Miller Butterson and Sunny Waters, Randy Balls and Lily LeBlanc, and Lance Romero and Poppy O'Connor. We do get a teeny, tiny bit of Rook Bowman--aka Rookie--but I doubt that he's had enough of a presence to warrant a full-length novel of his own. So...possibly a novella? Yes? Maybe? Hopefully? PLEASE, HELENA HUNTING?! I'm not above begging. Fingers and toes so crossed!

Anyhoo, back to DarLene... This book was above and beyond what I was hoping would be their story. Expectations were extremely high, especially given that these two had stirred many a curiosity over the span of several books. Well, consider my curiosity satisfied and then some! I don't know what Helena Hunting's end goal was when she first wrote Pucked, but here we are, six full-length novels, two novellas, and several outtakes later, and her books in this series have spawned a following beyond compare. Sebastian York and Stella Bloom took Hunting's story, and dare I say, have made her--and DarLene--proud. Pucked Love is one of 2018's very best audiobooks. Five-plus stars. ♥

awesome!

this is the 1st audio book I've tried and although I don't think il be convinced to stop reading books I definitely enjoyed it!
I loved this book even if it wasn't the story I had dreamed up for Darren and Charlene! I hope we get a novella of all the characters and their babies soon!

Darlene at last. Amazing!!

I'm a huge fan of the Pucked series, and have waited a long time to have Charlene and Darren's story. I was not disappointed. I absolutely loved it.
Highly recommend the whole series.

5 Firefly Stars

I have loved every book in this series. Each couple have been so well written and the stories have gripped me. This was the book I was desperate to read. This was the book that blew the others out of the water. Ms Hunting creates magic when she puts pen to paper and Pucked Love is pure romance with all the sexy and humour you would expect mixed in with some poignant moments. Darren and Charlene are my Top Couple.
HEA? Yes
Cheating? No

Perfect

Absolutely perfect. I think we've all waited so long for this story I was worried it wouldn't live up to my expectations but it surpassed them by a mile. It was boring like I thought it would be, it was perfect.

I`m completely in "Pucked Love"

Umm I really don`t know where or how to start.
I`ve waited for what feels like a life time for Darren and Charlene`s story, I wasn't disappointed, and it certainly wasn't what I was expecting.
I`m not about to spoil it for the followers of this series that are patiently waiting for the ebook release, but just know that Helena Hunting has once again given us another outstanding addition to this series.
Many surprises for all the "Pucked Fans" so get ready people.
It`s a little sad that this is the end of this fantastic series, I really hope she adds another book with everyone, you know a little look into the future of all of our favourite couples and their little families.
Pssssssss, DID YOU HEAR THAT Helena Bahahaha
Darren, gawd bless his socks and underwear is one of the sweetest, kindest characters I have read in a long time.
But lawd help me, he just wasn't what I was expecting him to be, sneaky Helena lead us up the garden path she did. LOL
Excellent narrative by two very talented voice artist.
