Overview

Miller “Buck” Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed up front teeth. After five years in the NHL, deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies, Miller has decided he’s ready for a girlfriend. A real, non-bunny girlfriend to take on dates, and not jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation.

Miller thinks he’s found that woman in his teammate’s sister. Except, unlike team captain and all-around nice guy Alex Waters—who happens to date his stepsister, Miller’s media reputation as a manwhore is well earned. Beyond that minor detail, Miller doesn’t know the first thing about relationships or the time and effort they require.

Miller learns—eventually—that if he wants to make Sunshine “Sunny” Waters fall for him, he's going to have to do a whole lot more than show her his stick skills in the bedroom.

I have to admit, I wasn't really a fan of Buck in Pucked, but this book had me head over heels for Miller! He completely won me over. This was a sexy and funny read, but to me it was a lot more emotional than Pucked. I can not believe I might actually love Miller more than Alex!! Helena Hunting books are definitely a must read!!

This is book 2 of the Pucked series and another book that will have you laughing out loud. Miller Butterson is a professional hockey player, who has a reputation with puck bunnies, until he meets Sunshine "Sunny" Waters, the younger sister of Alex Waters, a teammate of Miller's who just happens to be in a relationship with Miller's sister Violet. Sunny is well aware of Miller's reputation and does not want to be another puck bunny, and Miller wants to show her that he is sincere in his pursuit of her and not looking to add her to his list of conquests. The only problem he continues to have is Sunny seeing the pictures of him printed in the media with puck bunnies. Can Buck prove to her that he can be faithful? Can he prove to her that she is it for him or does she believe what she sees on the internet? You will have to read it to find out.

Not as good as the first book in the series. I did enjoy Miller's character, but Sunny was really annoying!

Great Read! It was a bit of a rocky start, just a little young in the writing. I then fell in love with Violet and Alex! Violet is just a bit crazy...

Pucked Up (Pucked #2) by Helena Hunting NHL defenseman Miller “Buck” Butterson has a well-earned reputation as a ladies’ man. He finds the one girl he would finally like to settle down with, Sunshine “Sunny” Waters. He is going to have to convince a lot of people that he has changed in order to win her over among them: Sunny herself; her brother Alex Waters, center/team captain; Violet Hall, Miller’s step-sister/Alex’s girlfriend; and don’t forget the media. I sympathized for poor, Miller; he kept trying so hard and felt like the majority of the time things did not go well for him (i.e. spider bite – omg). Being dyslexic definitely is not in his favor and goes against him on more than one occasion. Yes, sometimes he could have been smarter. His friend Lance is not a good influence. However, I like Miller and he truly does try, and he has a great heart. Being from Chicago, I love that Miller grew up there and currently plays for Chicago. Sunny is not an obvious match for Miller. She is very into holistic living. The long-distance Canadian-Chicago relationship also is not in their favor. I do like Sunny; she is a very sweet person. She lets her friends and family influence her a little too much. For example, I did not approve of her little camping trip. I like that she owns up to her mistakes. I really enjoyed Pucked Up’s plot. There were a lot of interesting things that happened that I would never have expected. The book flows well and reads quickly. Randy, Miller’s best friend, and Lily, Sunny’s best friend, meet in this novel. I am looking forward to their story in the next book: Pucked Over (Pucked #3).

‘I don’t want to be doomed to a life of bunnies and no substance. They’re not what I want. I want someone consistent. But caring that much about someone gives them a lot of power, and that makes me nervous. Power hurts people.’ ~Miller Minor spoilers alert Thank goodness for long holiday weekends! I loved being able to read Pucked and Pucked Up back-to-back. My expectations were high going into Buck's story. Fortunately, I wasn't disappointed. I loved that his story dealt with several complicated issues like how he coped with his dyslexia, how social media impacted his private life and his sincere attempt to have a serious romantic relationship with Sunny, in addition to his initially under the radar charity work to help enrich the lives of challenged kids. His romance with Sunny was at times refreshingly sweet, but also very challenging and full of sexy goodness. I also really enjoyed Miller and Violet's step-sibling dynamic. Even though Violet teased him constantly about his Yeti-ness, she was Team Miller when it really mattered, often giving him realistic romantic relationship advice. I loved seeing that kind of step-sibling unity. I think I hit a record for an insane amount of highlighted moments and bookmarked pages on this one. There's something extra special about reading a romantic comedy entirely from the male POV. I grinned almost constantly it seemed and laughed so hard at times that my head ached or my eyes leaked tears. There were also sentimental moments that I couldn't help but love as well. It's definitely another new all-time favorite. Up next in this series is Pucked Over (Pucked #3), expected out in January 2016. I'm looking forward to reading how Miller's bestie Randy finally falls and embraces love in his novel.

I hoped that we would get Yeti's story and it didn't disappoint. I fell for him and Sunny in Pucked. Loved seeing characters from the first book. This book is filled with sarcasm, funny situatiins, somewhat childish humor. Its awesome.

This was extremely entertaining! Super funny, really hot, bits of angst and drama. Great read! There were so many mishaps and awkwardness and it was awesome! Miller Butterson (Buck) had the best internal dialogue going on. I love that this is all from his POV! He tried hard and he meant well but things happened and hilarity and misadventure issued. I liked him and was rooting for him! He is such a good guy but comes off as not too bright but he's so much more than he seems. Honestly, sometimes I felt sorry for him. He totally grew on me throughout the story. I thought Sunny (Sunshine Waters) was really sweet, she had this naivety to her that was adorable and exasperating all rolled into one. I loved watching everything develop, the fun and the sexy and the inevitable problems and how everything worked out. Some things were out and out crazy but in a that-could-only-happen-to-Miller-I'm-totally-giggling kind of way. Both Miller and Sunny were a great mix of fun and frustrating, I loved them but wanted to smack them sometimes because of their stubbornness. Mixed in with the craziness that had me laughing were some really sweet moments as well. I loved those! And the hot! Lots of hot! It was all pretty fantastic. I really liked seeing more of Vi and Alex, and all the things that happened and tension that was there. It played out really well. I liked getting the snippet of Randy and Lily as well... I'm curious to know if they'll get their own story. So many witty parts! I absolutely enjoyed this! Spiders and exes and poison ivy oh my! For a nice dose of laughter and a lot of heat, Pucked Up is the way to go! Complimentary copy received for honest review.
