About this book…..
Miller “Buck” Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed up front teeth, and he was drafted into the NHL during his first year of college. After five years of deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies across the Continental US and parts of Canada, Miller is ready for a girlfriend. A real girlfriend of the non-bunny variety. One he takes on dates and doesn’t jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation.
Miller thinks he’s found that woman in his teammate’s sister. Except, unlike Alex Waters, center, team captain and all round nice guy—who happens to be dating his step-sister—Miller’s manwhore reputation is well earned, and not blown out of proportion by the media. Beyond that minor detail, Miller doesn’t know the first thing about having a girlfriend. But he’s determined to make it happen.
What he doesn’t take into account is the amount of time and effort relationships require, or that constantly letting bunnies take selfies with him to post all over social media isn’t going to win him any points in the boyfriend department. Miller learns—not so quickly—that if he wants to make Sunshine “Sunny” Waters fall for him, he going to have to do a whole lot more than show her his stick skills in the bedroom
I absolutely love this series.
In Pucked, the picture that Violet (step-sister) paints would lead one to believe that Miller “Buck” Butterson is a huge, unattractive, stupid, hairy man-whore yeti. I will be the first to admit that gave me doubts when it came to him having a whole book about him.
Thankfully, though, that was not the case. Buck is hairy yes, but he trims. And he’s blonde. And probably pretty good looking as well as comical. I mean, I was lol’ing throughout this entire book, much like the first one. Helena Hunting can write some pretty awesome romantic comedies.
This book is completely from Buck’s POV. I was unsure if that would be enough, but it totally was. Buck is pursuing a relationship with his sister’s fiancé’s sister, Sunny. Prior to meeting her, he was in fact, a man-whore. After meeting her though, he makes a decision to change his ways. However, Buck does not make good decisions sometimes and what follows is just one bad comical decision after another.
Sunny is not your typical girl. She’s not a puck bunny, she’s not high maintenance. She’s just a normal girl. However, she has her doubts about Buck’s sincerity. Mostly due to the fact that her BFF and brother are on her like white on rice that he is not a good guy, will never change, is no good for her, etc.
As is the case in most books, one of the parties gets tired of trying so hard to make it work, so Buck puts the breaks on. It does not take long for them to reconnect and then the HEA.
All in all, this was a motherpucking awesome read that I would refer to anyone looking to get a few laughs and enjoy a good book.
