Audiobook Review: Pucked Up (Pucked, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Pucked Up by Helena Hunting

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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. 

Pucked Up

Pure enjoyment!

The heroine: Sunshine Waters (a.k.a. Sunny) – sister to Alex Waters (Pucked, #1). Sunny is a good girl and not a puck bunny. She lives in Guelph, Ontario.

The Hero(es): Miller Butterson (a.k.a. Buck) – NHL Hockey player. He plays for Chicago and they won the Stanley Cup last year. Miller is a recovering playboy since he met Sunny.

The Story: Buck was a player and a partier and though he is reforming since the night he met Sunny and found he actually wanted to talk to her more than he wanted to sleep with her. Now he is dating her and has flown to Guelph a few times to spend time with her.

I really liked this story. It was utterly enjoyable, both sweet and sexy and I laughed out loud quite a few times. It was told solely from Buck’s point of view and the narrator had the perfect voice for this guy. His voice was deep when necessary, obtuse sounding in all the right places and deadpan when he said the funniest things. I loved it.

The book opened showing Buck as a drunken lout. He seemed like the gross fraternity brother who didn’t care about anyone but himself. However, the more we see of him the more he grows on you until you just can’t help but love him.

Sunny has a hard time dealing with his celebrity and how Miller was always showing up in social media pictures with scantily clad puck bunnies. As the two become closer it is easy to see their issues from both sides, since Buck really wasn’t doing anything wrong, but he always ended up in the most compromising pictures.
