Title: Pucked Off
Author: Helena Hunting
Series: Pucked Book 5
Genre: Contemporary Romance
This book is seriously Pucking Good!
Before we begin, I have a couple confessions to make.
1. This is my first Helena Hunting read.
2. I know absolutely nothing about hockey.
Still with me?
Okay….I made those confessions so that anyone else who hasn’t tried this series will know firsthand that while those things may add to their enjoyment, they’re absolutely unnecessary. What’s important to note is the writing is phenomenal. The characters are beautifully written and complex. The relationship development and character development are unparalleled. And above all, the storyline and execution are exceptional.
Here’s the breakdown: Lance Romero is the stereotypical man-whore athlete. He’s known for partying, hooking up, and having a bit of temper. His less than healthy relationship with his ex-lover is beyond complicated. Actually, Lance himself is a bit complicated. But what happens when he finally finds the one – The woman who calms the turmoil raging inside his head and heart?
What I Absolutely LOVED: Lance. He’s perfectly imperfect! There’s something about a wounded soul that speaks to me. However, he’s so much more than that. His struggles and issues define him for a portion of the book, but his gradual growth and the subtle changes to his character were beautiful to witness. His complete and total evolution once he finds true loving relationship was definitely heart-warming to see.
“I get it now that this is the way it’s supposed to be. This feeling is what I’ve been missing.”
“For the first time in my entire life, I understand what it means to be with someone who will give and not just take.”
I loved everything about his character. It was heart-breaking, but ends in pure joy! He’s my new book bae for sure!
The relationship development and back story of the main characters was exceptionally well planned and detailed. I enjoyed seeing the events from each of their perspectives. It made me love them both even more. These characters were so great with and for one another!
The writing and execution is beyond reproach. I was immediately drawn into the story and had to finish it as quickly as possible. There was no lag, no wondering thoughts, nothing but intense focus and admiration for this perfectly written novel.
Overall, this book is a TJ Top Fave. I Pucking Loved IT! I couldn’t love it more. I was absolutely blown away and cannot wait to read the series from the beginning. Helena Hunting has a new rabid fan! I highly recommend this book!
I rate it:
