Release Tour & Review for Pucked Off by Helena Hunting


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.

Excerpt:


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.”

Review: 5 STARS!!

This is the first book in the Pucked series that I have read and I absolutely LOVED it!!! This book grabbed my attention from the very first page and didn't let go until the very end.

Since I haven't read the previous books, I didn't know Lance's character and apparently in the previous books, he liked to party and was kind of a hothead, but in this book, we saw SO MUCH more to him than that. He had a very rough and heartbreaking childhood and my heart broke for him. I seriously just wanted to climb into the book and give Lance a big hug!! He puts on a facade for everyone, but when Poppy comes into his life, it is like she breaks something in him and he starts revealing his true self to her. I loved how emotional this book was. I've heard that the previous books in this series are more light and humorous, which is great and I can't wait to go back and read the previous books, but this book, seriously gutted me in the most beautiful way.

Lance is sexy, his accent is sexy and the fact that he plays hockey is just flat out sexy. Poppy was sweet and balanced with Lance perfectly. I loved that Lance knew Poppy was someone special and I was happy that Poppy took a chance on Lance. Together, these two characters healed and helped each other. I am so happy that I took a chance on this book because it is one of my top reads for 2017!! Helena Hunting did an amazing job with the characters and their story and I cannot wait for what comes next!!
