With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. She isn’t interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. When Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet’s misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match. Suffering from a complete lapse in judgment, Violet discovers just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. Violet believes her night of orgasmic magic with Alex is just that: one night. But Alex starts to call. And text. And email and send extravagant—and quirky—gifts. Suddenly, he's too difficult to ignore, and nearly impossible not to like. The problem is, the media portrays Alex as a total player, and Violet doesn’t want to be part of the game.

Have you ever wanted to read a really sexy book…but also ROFLAO at the same time? If so, then do I have a series for you. Pucked is the first book of this series by author Helena Hunting. There are two books out so far, with the third just around the corner for release. This book revolves around Violet Hall. She is the step sister of a famous Hockey player, Miller “Buck” Butterson. She has seen firsthand the behind the scenes shenanigans of all the girls who throw themselves at the players…better known to her as ‘Puck Bunnies’. She herself has decided to stay as far away from hockey players as possible due to what she has seen. She basically thinks they are just as slutty as the girls who throw themselves at them. She is a smart girl who has her priorities straight so this should be an easy feat. Right?

In walks Alex Waters. He is the hot teammate and captain of the team that Buck plays on. He also has the reputation for being quite the ladies man, which Violet adamantly wants to steer clear of. But as fate will demand there is no way that Violet can deny the attraction she has for Alex right off the bat. She tries to fight it but Alex is very persistent. During their journey from Point A to Point B…let the hilarity ensue. What I must punctuate are not only Violet’s inner thoughts and monologues, but what actually comes out of her mouth. I can’t tell you the amount of times when people would look at me weird because I would be laughing out loud as I read this book. As smart and intellectual as Violet is, the things that go through her brain and come out of her mouth are utterly ridiculous and hilarious. Even during their many sexy times together you can’t help but cover your mouth from wanting to laugh.

At the end of the day this is a very sweet love story, one that you will route for until the very end, but their journey to get to their happily ever after is different than just reading a dramatic romance. It will make you lusty, hot, happy and…hysterical. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes a good romance but who also loves a good laugh.
