Publisher's Summary

A standalone novel.

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. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she's the kind of bad I deserve.

At least that's what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She's all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.

I shouldn't want her.

But I do.

I should leave her alone.

But I won't.

    Story
    "Lance is my unicorn"
    What did you love best about Pucked Off?

    Everything!! I love the story, the characters, the angst, the humor. I loved everything!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lance of course. I knew I'd love him but I never expected to love him that much!! <3


    What does Rose Dioro and Jacob Morgan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jacob Morgan did an amazing job, especially with his accent. He transmited Lance's personality into his voice, smooth and strong but sometimes vulnerable. I really really loved him as Lance. But Rose Dioro did an okay job. Her tone of voice was so soft and low and I had a little difficult listening to her chapters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried so many times. The first time I read it, my heart broke in so many pieces and when I thought I had collected them to glue them all together, I listened to the audiobook and now I don't think I'll be able to fix it any time soon. But the ending of this book was so beautifu and perfect, that I dont mind the broken hearted at all.


    Any additional comments?

    Love Lance, love his girl and love everything about this book.

    Story
    "Best of the series"

    Wow! Where the heck did this book come from? I love The Pucked Series by Helena Hunting, and the over-the-top humor of most of the series, so I wasn’t expecting the pure beauty and emotion of Lance Romero’s book, Pucked Off , even though the series has gotten more emotional as it continues.

    I feel like I have been waiting for the wild playboy’s book forever. I want to do it justice in my review, but I don’t even want to tell you who the heroine is. (It would not have been a spoiler for me, but it may be for others).

    "Sometimes it's hard to tell your heart not to want someone, even if all they do is hurt you."

    I’ll tell you this, we finally find out the deal between Lance and Tash, and it wasn’t at all what I expected. But is she the heroine or someone else? I’m not telling. All I will say is that this is a beautiful second chance romance.

    Lance is nothing at all like I expected. This drinking, partying, fighting playboy is just a hurt boy inside, trying to hide his pain in the only way he can. After getting in yet another fight, he is forced to go to go get a massage to loosen him up so he can play, but the problem is, he hates to be touched.

    But maybe not HER touch.

    "I wrap my arm around her and pull her closer. I don’t know why I can handle her touching me when I’ve never been able to handle anyone before. It’s like she connects to some part of me I didn’t know was there."

    Lance is the guy she has never gotten over. He has hurt her in the past, so as much as she feels a connection, she needs to guard her heart.

    “I also need time to figure out how to find balance with this man. I want to save him from himself, and keep myself safe at the same time.”

    Poor Lance, he is so ridiculously hard on himself.

    “I savor her— taste her mouth, sample the sweetness of her tongue and the press of her body against mine. I’ve never wanted anyone the way I want her. I don’t want to claim, [ef], devour. I want to be worthy, and I’m afraid I never will be. This is exactly what makes me a bad person, because that won’t stop me. I’ll get inside her. I’ll find out how good it feels to be with her, even if I never deserve her.”

    Lance has never been with anyone who made him feel like he was worth it.

    “For the first time in my entire life, I understand what it means to be with someone who will give and not just take.”

    But he is oh-so broken. Can she fix him?

    “I have the real him right here with me now, too. I have a broken boy who's become a broken man, and as stupid and naïve as it may be, I want to be part of what heals him.”

    She makes him want to change everything, to become the man she deserves.

    "This feeling—what you do to me—I've never had it before, and I don't want to lose it. But I probably don't deserve it."

    One thing I loved is her strength and her history of feelings toward him. She is kind and independent, and I am so glad that she was all-in for taking the risk with him. There could not have been a better girl for Lance.

    “I could kiss her forever. I could live in this memory—past fused with the present. This kiss would be my heaven.”

    Likes:

    •So much more depth to this book than I ever expected.
    •There was still lots of funny to break up the emotion.
    •Lance was so much more than I ever expected.
    •The couple worked beautifully together.
    •Just an all-around beautiful, swoony romance.
    •Very hot.
    •Visiting with all the other players and wives.
    •The epilogue

    Dislikes:

    •I would have liked a little more well-adjusted together time.

    Narration:
    Jacob Morgan and Rose Dioro did an amazing job with the narrations. I don’t really know what a Scottish accent sounds like, and I’m not sure he totally nailed it —it sounded like french and Irish mixed, but it still totally worked. The narration, I think, made this story even better. He nailed the sexy, the sad and scared, and the accent. She was perfect and never grated on my nerves the way some do. They both sounded like the age that they played.

    The Down & Dirty:
    Pucked Off is in many ways the best in the Pucked series. Though the original, Pucked, will always be my favorite (how can you not love Super MC?), Pucked Off is so different you can’t even compare it. I would not call it a romantic comedy, the way the rest of the series is. It is a serious, emotional, angsty book, with lots of the fun humor Helena is known for to break up the emotion. I think Pucked Off can absolutely stand alone, and in some ways it may be better to read this first, especially if you like an angstier, more emotional story.

    Rating: 5 stars, 4 Heat, 5 Narration

    "Perfect!"

    I loved this story. Very sweet and amazing narration! Nice to hear his story after getting glimpses here and there throughout the other books in the series. I would recommend to listen to the other books in this series first!

    "My favorite of the Pucked series thus far!!"

    I loved Lance and his whole story. You could feel his story building up in the Pucked series, and I wasn't sure I would like him very much because of his history in the books. But Helena was a master mind at flipping everything around on me and now I love, love, love Lance Romance Romero.
    Also I think this was my favorite narration so far. Jacob and Rose did a fantastic no with this duo.

    "Best male narrator!"

    Jacob Morgan is the best male narrator out there! Believable and natural, he sounds like a hunky hockey star.

    "Fantastic Story"

    This is such a wonderful story. A sweet girl, Poppy, helping a scarred boy, Lance, get through his awful childhood memories, that are messing with his head now that he is an adult.

    The performances by the narrators were good, once you get over the truly awful accents! Lance is supposed to be Scottish, he sounds a mixture of American, Canadian and Irish!
