Audiobook Review: 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.
Genre: Romance – Sports (Hockey), Comedy
Part of a Series: Yes Book 2 of the Pucked Series
POV: Miller aka Buck
Steam Level: Toasty at times
Although Pucked Up is a standalone it’s even better if you’ve read Pucked (the first book in the series). In Pucked you meet the two main characters from Pucked Up. It was fun getting to know Buck and Sunny more. I liked the male POV throughout. The drama was not too dramatic but just enough to keep you engaged and move the story along. The humor was subtler than the first book but still had some laugh out loud moments, especially with Vi. The humor was also used very well to break up the tension and the potential dramatics. I loved Buck’s transformation and character development. I look forward to seeing more of his and Sunny’s HEA in future books of this series.
