Publisher's Summary

Miller "Buck" Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed-up front teeth. After five years in the NHL, deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies, Miller has decided he's ready for a girlfriend. A real, nonbunny girlfriend to take on dates and not jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation.

Miller thinks he's found that woman in his teammate's sister. Except, unlike team captain and all-around nice guy Alex Waters - who happens to date his stepsister - Miller's media reputation as a manwhore is well earned. Beyond that minor detail, Miller doesn't know the first thing about relationships or the time and effort they require.

Miller learns - eventually - that if he wants to make Sunshine "Sunny" Waters fall for him, he's going to have to do a whole lot more than show her his stick skills in the bedroom.

Perfect audiobook to embrace the Yeti

What did you love best about Pucked Up?

*SIGH!* I love all the Pucked Men but my favorite of all of them is Miller. He is sweet and perfect! I love the way he loves. What started as a revenge move, more like a thought because once he spend a little time with Sunny he knew she would be the girl he wanted to be his girlfriend, quickly moved into something more meaningful and challenging for him. He had to change a lot to prove everybody he was worth Sunny’s love and I’m so happy he could accomplish it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Obviously Miller couldn’t do it all by himself, he had the help of Queen Violet and his best friend Randy. Love all my beloved Pucked Characters.

Which scene was your favorite?

I love the conversarion with Miller and Sunny af the end, the conversation that solves the drama!! *Not saying, it's a spoiler*

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Embrace the Yeti

Any additional comments?

Joe Arden has the perfect voice for Miller. It’s smooth and slow. It has the strength of Miller’s personality but also shows the vulnerability of Miller’s in certain situations in this book. Joe’s inflexions for Sunny were so great, translating her sweet personality and when they were having sex, it was so sexy and perfect. I seriously loved this audiobook as much as I loved the book. 100% Recommended.

B rating...

My Review:
Overall: 3.5
Performance: 4.5
Story: 3.0

This is one of those books. Overall, I enjoyed listening to it...with one major exception. I really did not like Sunny, especially as the book went on and she didn't change her attitude at all. Miller deserves so much better!! He's such a nice guy with incredibly rotten luck. Sunny was too immature, and he really needed someone better...who could actually respect him. Because as this book is written, I cannot accept that their HEA will ever last past the next online photo blowup. Ugh...seriously.

But I did LOVE Miller's character and thought the narrator did a fabulous job. The entire book is told from Miller's pov and I LOVED that. While this particular book didn't work for me, I am really enjoying the series overall, so I did grab the next one in the series. I just hope the couple is better matched than they were in this one.

I might be in the minority, but I enjoyed this better than the original Pucked.

I have to say I delayed on this story, because as much as I loved Pucked, I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy Buck's book. I didn't know if I would be able to be attracted to Buck, commonly referred to in Pucked as "the Yeti". The image in my head wasn't exactly all that hot! But I really do think I enjoyed this book even more than Pucked (even though that one had me laughing my butt off). Who knew that Buck was going to be Mr. Sensitive? Sonny was a little bland as a character, but the storyline was good and I loved meeting Randy in this book and can't wait to dive into his story next.

MORE HOCKEY...PLS

Ok, so I gave it a day before I reviewed this book. I liked it but there were just some parts that really had me wondering why?
I really do understand drama in books, but sometimes I feel like there is just TOOOOO much drama.
The wittiness and funniness helps make up for all the dramalama

Sunny is a very insecure girl and what I don’t understand is why she doesn’t just TALK to Buck? I can’t tell you how many times I said out loud, JUST TALKKKKKKKKK TO HIM!!
I really am torn because other than that I really liked her character.

Buck does need to take more responsibility for some of the things he did. Having a backup phone would be one. For someone who does have a “disability”, it would just be smart. I say that in quotes because he has overcome it and though it is hard for him he is managing it.

Now this is under sports because he is a Hockey player, but I believe he played like one game and it was at the end of the book…. Why? I wanted team interaction, I wanted game plays… I feel like we kinda get gipped.

I really want to keep going in this series but I don’t have high hopes for the rest of them.

LOVED the narration! I am a fan of Joe Arden because he can not only do male voices, plural, but he can do a female tone that doesn’t make me want to rip my ears off. :)

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

No Puck Up Here

Romantic comedy at its best! Just like book one in the series, Pucked Up was laugh aloud funny with quirky characters and flirty dialogue. The addition of some more serious issues grabbed at my heartstrings. Then add in the hot sexy romance and the book was perfect. Pure entertainment with the talented narrator... this book was no puck up.

smh

this book was all sex. also using the word puck(ING) for the F-word, just annoying. I get that is the title, but give me a break. there was no connection between the characters. h goes off with an ex but H doesn't mind, even after all the pic's of them all cuddled up together. H meets up with h and it's all sex and hardly any talking. another bad pic and h runs off with ex again after H gets punched and is bleeding. with the H, at least you understand the misunderstandings with his pic's. h is a stupid little girl and the whole vegan thing just made me roll my eyes. then h & H get back together after a few words and start having sex. I wish the H found a more worthy girl for his love. no man, no matter how much in love, would ever be okay with his woman running off with her ex twice. there is no words of how bad this book is.

Disappointed in the story. Good Narration

I like the writing, and I enjoy some of the humor, but I had a hard time with this one.

The positives: I listened to the audio version, and the narrator did a good job. He has a nice voice. I wasn't in love with his voice for Alex, and he made all the females seem shrill and airheaded, but they kind of were, so maybe that was spot on. The writing flows smoothly, and it's fun. Miller is a sweetie for the most part, and it was nice to see him change his ways. I can't stand a manwhore. The romance does have sweet moments, and the sex scenes are generally hot.

The negatives: I didn't like that this is not dual POV. It is all in Miller's POV, so the reader doesn't get to connect with Sunny. She seems very immature. She uses an ex-boyfriend to make Miller jealous, she sunbathes topless in front of said ex-boyfriend, let's everyone else's opinions matter over common sense, and still lives with her parents. I get that she's young, but she's so ditzy. I don't feel she cares enough for Miller. It seems she only cares about the sex. Miller is trying to have serious conversation with Sunny, but she just turns it into sex. Sunny makes some stupid mistakes, and she really needs to make more of an effort to apologize, but just thinks about sex the whole time. Plus, she uses a sick kid in the hospital as an excuse to meet up with Miller, which I found really cold-hearted. She comes across as vapid and dim. Helena Hunting really did a disservice to Sunny's character by not having her POV. Another thing I hated, is how horrible she made Violet. She's just a comical caricature now. Helena Hunting has taken away any brains she had in the first book. I really liked Violet in the first book, but she is horrible written now. She's just a joke of a character. I like Hunting's writing, but her female characters leave a lot to be desired. Another thing that rubs me the wrong way, the other hockey players are totally disgusting. Lance is horrible. The whole puck bunny is just ewww! Maybe the hockey has knocked the brains out of these guys.

I already have the next books, so I'll continue with the series because I was entertained. I don't particularly like the premise for the next book. I hate the let's have sex without emotional attachments thing because it's so obvious that is never going to work. The girl always thinks they can handle that type of situation, but surprise, surprise, they can't. Also, from what I saw of Lily, I'm not a fan. But, I'm willing to give it a shot because I really enjoyed the first book. Maybe this is just a slump in the author's writing.

Nearly gave this 2 stars

Very mediocre story filled with characters you just want to shout at in frustration. Lots of sections are unnecessarily long and detailed without adding anything to the story which makes it drag as a read. I don’t mind long books, but the words have to count and add value. None of the characters or the story left a mark. Left with a sense of disappointment and feeling unfulfilled now it’s finished.

A boring listen

I really enjoyed the prequel of this book with Violet and Alex though this was nothing short of boring. I kept waiting for something exciting to happen but girl goes away they break up get back together .. The end. Wouldn't recommend this at all
