✤ Forever Pucked ✤ Helena Hunting ✤ #Pucked4 ✤

• release date: 29 March 2016
you should read the first 3 books first, but especially the 1st one - because that's where Alex & Violet's story began!

4.5 Stars

Being engaged to Alex Waters, team captain and the highest paid NHL player in the league, is awesome. How could it not be?

In addition to being an amazing hockey player, he’s an incurable romantic with an XL heart, and an XXL hockey stick in his pants. And he knows how to use it. Incredibly, orgasmically well. Alex is the whole package and more. Literally. Like his package is insane. Total world record holder material.

So it makes complete sense that Violet Hall can’t wait to nail him down to the matrimonial mattress and become Mrs. Violet Waters.

It’s so romantic.

Violet is totally stoked to set a date.

Eventually. At some point. Likely before the next millennium. Or when Violet stops getting hives every time someone brings up the wedding, and their mothers stop colluding on stadium sized venues.
Whichever comes first.

When FOREVER PUCKED landed on my kindle, I thought, ok - this will be a tiny little wedding-novella. But pfffff nope - it's a huge full-length book!

Violet and Alex (from book #1 - if you've forgotten about them... Beaver, Super MC, ring any bells??)
have been together for a year now.
And while Violet is still a bit uncomfortable with all the money she's suddenly allowed or rather forced to use, she's very very happy with her hockey god and his MC.
But of course being engaged might one day lead to them getting married.
And that is kind of a problem for our Violet, because as soon as someone, like Alex or their moms, mention the W-word - she breaks out in hives!!!!
She hates being the center of attention, and at her own wedding that would hardly be avoidable ...
But before they can talk more about the scary wedding plans, and before the moms can drive her even more insane with talk about wedding venues.... Alex is hurt pretty badly in a game and suddenly all her wedding fears seem so meaningless.....


I'm not telling you that of course ☺


EEEEEEEP - another #PUCKED book!!!!!!!!!!!!


I really enjoyed this story!
If I had to say which of the 4 books is my favorite? I think I'd still go with the second one...BUT that doesn't mean that Alex & Violet aren't just as great!!!

Just like with Alex & Violet's first book, I had a few tiny little problems with Violet. She's just a bit too over the top for me. She's even SO much over the top, that she's kind of amazing again. But still, all that talk about Beavers and MCs and whatnot - a tiny little bit too much. Not as bad as the first book - maybe because I'm used to her weird talking now ☺

BUT - I really loved the story.
I laughed a LOT - I even cried a lot ...

The story was soo adorable and moving and sexy and frustrating and sad and funny and heartbreaking .... just perfect.
We meet all of our couples again and a few others too...
As I said before, I was expecting a tiny little wedding novella, but what I got was soooo much more!

FOREVER PUCKED was an amazingly adorable and funny and sexy and moving romance about how a hot hockey god will finally find his Happily Ever After with his slightly crazy girl!


ARC received for an honest review

It's always a great day when you wake up to a Pucked novel waiting on your kindle.

Alex and Violet's story had me in stitches in their first book, Pucked (which you will definitely need to have read before Forever Pucked).  And their antics are just as funny in their wedding book.

But maybe, just maybe, the drooly beavers and Super MC's were just a little bit over the top this time?  Don't get me wrong, I love Violet, she is my spirit animal, but at times she was just too, too much this time around.

I loved that it wasn't all beave hugs and sexy times with Forever Pucked.  There were some more sombre issues that Alex and Violet had to go through that I felt made them a more rounded couple, and at times broke my heart a little.

I adored that we got more of the rest of the Pucked guys and gals.  I especially loved the banter between the ladies.  OMG, they are such dirty, dirty girls - and I loved each and every one of them.

I wanted to climb into the book and tell Alex's mum to STFU - god she annoyed me most the time (but that could just be me!)

Forever Pucked was a funny, sexy, at times frustrating, but wonderful story of a beaver and MC finding their HEA - and I can't wait to see where everyone's stories go in the future. 

Please Ms Hunting - I NEEEEED Darren and Charlene's story.  Oh, and Lance Romance's too!

This time next week sounds like a good time to get more, don't you think hehe



If you haven't read the first book in the #PUCKED series - where Alex & Violet got started with their Happily Ever After...DO IT NOW!
