PUCKED (Helena Hunting)


With a famous NHL player for a step-brother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation many hockey stars come with. She’s smart enough to steer clear of those hot, well-built boys with unparalleled stamina. That is until she meets the legendary team captain — Alex Waters. 

Violet isn’t interested in his pretty, beat-up face, or his rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet’s previous misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes more than just a hot body with a face to match. 

In what can only be considered a complete lapse in judgment, Violet finds out just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. But what starts out as a one-night stand, quickly turns into something more. Post-night of orgasmic magic, Alex starts to call, and text, and e-mail and send extravagant — and quirky — gifts, making him difficult to ignore, and even more difficult 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.

I have mentioned a few times already how much I love Hockey books, right? So, after seeing a good review of this book on another blog, I decided to give this one a chance. This book was definitly different from the other Hockey books I’ve read though, but I did enjoy it a lot. This was definitly a very fun read! 😀

The writing was beyond funny. I read this book and I heard a few chapters in audio, and I was laughing like crazy in the middle of the street.

I do think the characters were fun, but I felt they were a bit two dimensional. The story itself it’s not big or deep, and so the characters serve the story well. Violet was fun and outspoken and I loved her little outbursts. Alex I kind of liked, but I wasn’t sold on him being the captain of the Hockey team, because that dude had a very short fuse, lol. I really liked Violet’s relationship with Buck, but her description of her step-brother isn’t making me want to read book 2 =/.

As I said, even though it wasn’t the best book in terms of plot and characters, it was hilarious and entertaining, and super super hot. I had a blast!

Book Traveling Thursdays: A Great Conclusion!


Hello, welcome back to another Book Traveling 168709Thursdays, which a weekly meme created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. The goal is to share the covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group, indicating the original cover, the one of your country, your favorite and least favorite.

This week’s theme is “Everything has an end! Choose your favorite conclusion to a series“. I was going with the obvious and say Clockwork Princess, but then I reconsidered and I’m going with Ignite Me instead, because I loved this book and it gave me a huge book hangover 😀 .

Original COver:

This is without a doubt my favorite cover of this book, and definitly one of my favorite covers EVER. I love everything about it.


Portugal doesn’t have a cover yet, and it will maybe never have. But the spanish edition just came out a couple of months ago, and it looks like this. I personally don’t like it, but it’s not the worst cover either.

Favorite COVER(s):

The original US and UK cover is definitly my fave 😀 .



My least favorite covers are the Australian, Czech, Turkish and German editions. Do I need to explain any of them?!
