Pucked by Helena Hunting (Book Review)



With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. 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.

At first Alex’s shyness, gentlemanly ways towards intimacy was cute but that changed rather quickly for me. Asking to kiss a woman for the first time —- sweet. Asking to afterwards is weird. The “May I” or “Is this ok” was borderline annoying. However that wasn’t close to annoying as the overuse of the word beaver. 
HH kept referring to a vagina as beaver (Canadian slang term). Again the joke was funny at first but after several dozen times later, I was so over it and pretty much over this book. 
Examples of “beaver references…..
1.) “had more than one round of fill-the-beaver-hole in a night”
2.) “How’s your beaver?” (post sex text) 
3.) “I’m glad your beaver made a full recovery.” (another text) 
4.) My beaver is so excited she’s gnawing at my underwear.
5.) During a waxing section, she refers to the hair as “beaver pelts”.
6.) beaver image throughout the book.
There are many more instances like these but I think you get my drift. Yes, I’m rolling my eyes AND shaking my damn head!!!! 
Other parts of this tale irked me as well….. HH worn out use of MC (monster cock). I get it already. The man is hung like a horse. Move on already!!! 
With a sexy cover and book summary, I thought this book was going to be golden. Unfortunately, it didn’t make a lasting impression. I definitely won’t be reading it again. 

Heart Rating System – 1 (lowest) and 5 (highest) 

Score:(because of the cover art)
