Title: Pucked
Author: 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.

This story begins when Violet goes to see her stepbrother play a hockey game. He's a pro, and she's sick of the hockey players, especially how they all seem to be manwhores. But when she meets Alex Waters, things get a little complicated. Especially when she seems to have a lapse in judgement one night with Alex. Alex on the other hand knows that he wants something more from Violet. He's tired of the one night stands, and wants something real. Alex will do whatever it takes to prove to Violet that he actually wants to be something more to her. 

Pucked was an okay book. It wasn't that great, but not bad either. 

What I liked: 
1) The hockey. I really enjoyed the hockey aspect of the book. 

2) The plot. The over all story line was very interesting. 

3) The relationship between the hero and heroine. I loved them together they were actually very good for each other. 

What I didn't like:
1) The characters. I really hated how Violet acted sometimes. It was frustrating and beyond annoying. And sometimes Alex acted in the same way as well. 

2) The cheesy dialogue, especially during sexy times. This was seriously frustrating as well. I thought it was cute at first, but then it just got redundant, and bothersome. 
It took away some of the greatness of the book. 

Overall the story was pretty interesting, and I did like it.
