Publisher’s blurb
With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. So of course 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.

Pucked by Helena Hunting is a really well done funny read. I loved the character of Violet she is modern, funny, and feisty all at the same time. She is a little on the crass side too but that is what makes her so darn loveable.
Alex with his green eyes and easy charm he is very easy to like.  He is good soul in a hockey players body.  He might come off as a player but deep inside he has been looking for someone like Violet for a very long time.
I liked how these two can laugh at each other and have hot raunchy sex too.  They both have deep feelings they try to hide but fail to because they love each other so much. Once they learn to trust each other and let the other in they are an unstoppable team.
The over all pace of this book is really good, not to fast or too slow. This is my first time reading author Helena Hunting and I will be looking for more of her quirky humor, and fast paced romances in the future.  I really loved Pucked on many levels and did not want this book to ever end. 
Pucked is the first in a series and I hope Violet’s Step Brother Buck has his story next.  I would love a good yeti story.   When you want some humor with your steamy romance Pucked is the book to pick up.
