Pucked Up by Helena Hunting

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, non-bunny 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.

***The 2nd standalone novel in The PUCKED Series***

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I read this as a standalone without reading Pucked first, without issue, but I am kicking myself for not starting this series earlier.

I laughed out loud more times than I care to mention. The cringe worthy situations Miller kept getting himself into. Pucked Up is hilarious, but it's also sweet and touching. Miller "Buck" Butterson is a player, a manwhore. The media has played him as such. He has more selfies taken with "bunnies" than a lot of the other hockey players. The only issue is he's given it all up for Sunny. He's trying to stay faithful but getting caught on camera in compromising positions doesn't look good for him. Her brother Alex is on his team and engaged to his stepsister, he doesn't think Miller is good enough for Sunny. Sunny is tired of putting up with Miller's behavior. Can they make a relationship work, especially one that is long distance? Can he show her that being in a relationship is what he wants?

This is my first read by Ms. Hunting and I can assure you it won't be my last. Her writing draws you in, you get so invested in the characters. Once you are drawn in add the humor, the feels and it's a great story. I can't wait to see what happens in Pucked Over and you can bet I will be going back to read Pucked now that I know what a fantastic series this is.
