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.
Helena Hunting definitely knows how to write hot hockey romance plus a twist of humor in the mix. And she definitely excel in Pucked Up. Pucked Up picks up with Miller and Sunny falling for each other but things are more complicated that their relationship will start off rough and shaky to begin with.
Miller may have a past with the women but he is trying his hardest with Sunny. He see himself with Sunny that he is making everything work for their relationship. But there is so many people again him that it becomes a huge challenge for him to be with Sunny. I definitely felt for Miller because everyone has a past but you cannot judge them from it at all. I definitely did not like how hard Miller is doing for his relationship with Sunny because he is making all of the effort but she does not and she does not trust him at all.
Sunny is free spirited women that she catches the eye of Miller. But she is definitely caution with him that she is very hestriate to start anything. I definitely did not like Sunny at all because she always believe someone else that she makes it more work for Miller. She needs to have a backbone if you want a relationship. I definitely did not like Sunny at all since she does not take Miller side at all.
Their romance starts rough and shaky that it takes a lot of time for them to be together. Four Star.
