Pucked Off, an all-new emotional and sexy STANDALONE from Helena Hunting is LIVE!!
Pucked Off by Helena Hunting
Genre: Contemporary Romance
***A Standalone novel in The Pucked Series***
I’m NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance.”
I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.
Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.
I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.
At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.
I shouldn’t want her.
But I do.
I should leave her alone.
But I won’t.
Armed with my clipboard, I walk down the hall to the waiting room. Lance is impossible to miss. Despite the fact that he’s wearing a sweatshirt and the hood is covering half of his face, he’s more than six feet of broad, hockey-playing man.
He’s so wide his shoulders encroach on the chairs on either side, which would explain why no one is sitting next to him. He’s slouched down so his head rests on the back of the chair, and his hands are clasped in his lap, a baseball cap hanging off one knee. His lips, plush and soft—I know since I’ve had them on mine; it might have been a decade ago, but I remember it clearly—are parted. He looks like he’s asleep.
I clear my throat. “Lance Romero?”
He doesn’t move.
Bernadette, the receptionist, gives me a meaningful look.
I clear my throat again and call his name a second time. He jolts awake and the hood falls back, exposing his face. It’s not in good shape. He has a black eye and bruises on his left cheek. There’s a fly bandage across one eyebrow.
Sadly, he’s still hot.
He blinks a few times, yawns, and smacks his lips, his tongue touching the split in the bottom one. His gaze sweeps the room and finally lands on me. Heat explodes in my cheeks and courses through my limbs, warming me from the inside out as he starts at my sneaker-clad feet and roams up over my yoga pants to my company-issued T-shirt before stopping at my face. I can’t look directly at him for more than a couple of seconds. I sincerely hope he doesn’t remember me. I cannot go there and also be professional.
I’m sure the smile he gives me has melted many a panty off a slutty bunny. Mine stay right where they’re supposed to, wedged up my ass.
I force a polite, professional veneer. “I’m ready for you now.”

My Review –
* I volunteered to review a Copy of this book from Social Butterfly PR*
Thank you so very much Social Butterfly PR!! I am extremely honored and grateful!! 🙂
Being a huge admirer of Ms.Hunting’s work I couldn’t wait to dive into this one! It was everything I wanted it to be and more! I absolutely loved it! It broke my heart yet made me smile so much! Lance’s story did NOT disappoint!! Days after reading I’m still thinking about it and I already want to read it again. I didn’t expect it to grab onto my heart strings so much and make me feel every emotion under the sun. I have wanted to get inside Mr.Romero’s mind since he was first introduced in the series and especially after what went on in Pucked Under!!
Ms.Hunting has a way of creating characters that you never want to let go of. She perfectly shows what can build a person up and what can tear them down at the same time. She also showed how we shouldn’t judge others unless we’ve walked a mile in their shoes. I liked that things weren’t surgarcoated in this story and that I could feel everything that poured off of the pages. It dealt with some tough subjects that I don’t often see addressed in books.
If you haven’t already One-Clicked, What are you waiting for?!?! Buy it Today!! This is not a series to be missed!! If you haven’t met the gang yet fix that right now and I’ll wait here not so patiently. 😉 I hope you love this story as much as I did my fellow book lovers!!
