Pucked Over by Helena Hunting

Lily LeBlanc isn’t versed in the art of casual sex, but after seven years in an on-again, off-again relationship, she’s definitely willing to give it a shot. And who better to try it with than her best friend’s boyfriend’s best friend? What could possibly go wrong?

NHL player, Randy Ballistic, lives up to his last name on the ice and in the bedroom. His best friend and teammate has recently given up the puck bunnies and traded them in for a real girlfriend. And she just happens to have a seriously feisty, extra-hot best friend on the rebound. Randy’s more than happy to be Lily’s spring board back into the dating scene.

But casual sex is only casual until those pesky things called emotions get involved. Once that happens, someone’s bound to get pucked over.

***The 3rd standalone novel in The PUCKED Series***

Helena Hunting is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Her writing is amazing, her stories are always fast paced, and I always laugh my ass off.

Randy Ballistic is Buck’s best friend and Lily is Sunny’s best friend and we got to know them in Pucked Up. The two had a “thing” at Alex’s cabin and then when Lily thought that Randy was on to a new girl she went crazy and sharpied all his boxers. This book takes up right where we left off with Pucked Up, neither able to get the other off their minds. Lily is determined to avoid Randy at all costs because of embarrassment from her crazy act at the cabin. She takes to hiding in a bathroom but that doesn’t deter Randy at all and they end up having their first bathroom sex encounter. I say first because that is kind of their “thing” in this book and it’s pretty hilarious.

This book is definitely a 10 on the hot-o-meter for steamy sex scenes. It has a fast pace, you won’t want to put it down once you begin reading and their humor is on point. I can’t wait to see what Helena Hunting releases next.

A Fun and Flirty 4.5*

I have to admit that I am late to the 'Pucked' party, and this is the first that I have read – but was reassured by the promise that they are standalones. Well, having read this one, I shall be making a space in my reading list to read the other two as soon as possible! A sports romance with humour mixed in perfect measure.

This is a really well plotted book – it works from beginning to end in so many ways. All the characters move forward, we get enough information when we need it, no extraneous detail, plenty of humour – in fact lots and lots of humour, some overt, some subtle – all in fun, even if at exactly the wrong moment at times! I loved the lead characters, obviously wanted them to wake up to themselves – but their friends were not judgmental, mostly they were supportive. The guys were not given to being emotional, but when they were, it followed a conversation with their girlfriends, so was believable. There is wonderful, fun chemistry, which Randy and Lily really don't know to deny, nor accept – but thankfully they go with the flow, much to the benefit of the readers.

This is on my reread list, no doubt to be joined by the rest of the series, and I will be checking if there are any other Ms. Hunting’s books which I have not yet read.

Lily is just getting out of a relationship and well, she's horny. A hook-up is exactly what she needs and hooking up with the manwhore himself is even better. Lily and Randy have a fast hot hook-up. He never expects anything else. He's the rebound, he gets it, but he can't stop thinking about Lily. Lily, in turn, can't stop thinking about Randy. It's the reformed manwhore story but with a humorous twist.

The crude humor, the inappropriateness is spot on. With each Pucked book, Ms. Hunting is outdoing herself. This has to be my favorite though. Randy and his man bun are a perfect combination. I love the insecurities that pop up, makes the read more real.

Can't wait to see what comes next.
