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 ...more

I can't quite bring myself to DNF this, but at the same time, I can't continue either.

The heroine, Sunny, is a vegan yoga enthusiast that doesn't swear. What the fuck kind of fucking person doesn't fucking swear? Just kidding. Kinda. But really, I really don't know anyone past the age of 5 that uses the word "doody". I mean, shit! I know it's supposed to make her quirky, but really it just annoyed me. I didn't find her to be endearing at all. Her treatment of the hero b

Pucked Up is the second book in Helena’s Pucked series and is all about Violet’s Yeti step-brother Miller ‘Buck’ Butterson and Alex’s sister Sunny Sunshine. They make an unlikely pair but… I actually really loved them together! Hunting writes with such humor- you can’t help but laugh out loud multiple times while reading these books!

Miller is one of those characters that I loved from the first book. I was excited to read this one. Sunshine and Miler's relationship had some rocky mo

It's been so long since I read just for the sheer pleasure and not because I had to for the blog.
Don't get me wrong, I very much love blogging and I am thankful for all the wonderful arcs I have received over the years.
It's just nice not to have the stress of a deadline and having to write a review.

I have loved the "Pucked" series since I first picked up Randy's story.

First off this book is hilarious and made me laugh out loud multiple times. It also gave me severe anxiety because Miller always seemed to be putting himself in the wrong situation at the wrong time. He was just a magnet for bad timing and I was always a nervous about what would happen next. I am not a huge fan of angst, but was unable to put this down because I needed to know what would happen next!

I can't even begin to express how much I LOVED and ADORED Pucked Up!!!!! Helena Hunting has seriously stole my heart when she introduced me to one of the sweetest, charming, and lovable Yeti that I have ever read. Okay, well there is no actual Yeti but Miller “Buck” Butterson will make me reconsider thinking Yeti's aren't so bad especially if they have a heart of gold like Miller.

This second book bring us the book of Buck and Sunny. For the first time Buck is decided to have the girl and everything associated with that, but his past and public image are making it harder for him.
Sunny doesn’t want to fall in love with Buck, he’s too wild for her and she doesn’t trust easily, but when she can’t control her feelings anymore and Buck doesn’t stop chasing, will her let go of her fears or give into temptation?

I frankly don't know what happened here. I really enjoyed the first book in the series - although it was a bit goofy.
However, this book was SO UNFUNNY that brain cells were leaking out of my nose while reading... I had to stop for my own good.

This is not a bad book, I am just not connecting to the heroine at all, and I feel at this point in the book I should know a bit more about her other than that she is a vegan.

I loved book 1 a lot, it was funny and I loved all of the characters including Buck. Unfortunately the Buck in this story feels different and the humour is not amusing me.

I would like to go back to it at some point but at the moment it's on hold.

Another quick paced and laugh out loud funny read from Helena Hunting! Pucked Up had me in stitches.

In book 2 of the series, Miller and Sunny's relationship progresses from the just friends category to more than friends. As expected, her brother is not at all pleased about this development and the shenanigans ensue.

Here's the breakdown: Miller's manwhore ways catch up to him in the worst possible way. He's finally fallen for a super sweet woman who he's unbelievably attracted too. Unfortunately,

When first meeting the NHL hockey player Miller “Buck” Butterson in Pucked, I have to admit, I really didn’t think much of him. Then again, I was judging him from Violet’s point of view. All his Yeti-ness gave me a douchey, man-slut, puck-bunny banger vibe. But, falling for his teammate’s sister changed Buck and I never thought

Really enjoyed this one!

Pucked up revolves around Miller “Buck” Butterson (brother of Violet and teammate to Alex Waters from Pucked) who falls for Sunny, Alex's younger sister.

I must say, from the impression Violet left of Buck from Pucked, I was expecting some silly jock man-whore. But after getting to know him, I found him to be such an incredibly sweet character with a huge heart.

He spends majority of the book trying to get himself out of comical ridiculous situations that don’t quite go ac

I have to say this one didn't grab me at all like Pucked. I liked Miller okay but didn't like Sunny at all and couldn't root for them to be together. I found her too immature, whiny, judgmental, and manipulative. She played victim all the time, running to her friends or brother when things got bad, and expected Miller to chase after her when she got her feelings hurt. I was actually happy when he finally walked away and wish he would have met someone else during that time. I felt no ch

This was sooo much better than the first book!!
Pucked tried to be funny way too hard...but this second book.... I LOVED IT!
I was so afraid Helena wouldn't make Buck likeable enough for me, but he's so amazing. He's not the stupid idiot we saw in the first book.
He's so much more - he has so many hidden secrets and desires and problems and hopes and ugh...just adorable.


And his cute adorable Sunshine. The vegan-almost-virgin Sunny. Those two fit together perfectly.
Of course it's not HAPPY EVER AFT

Looks like I couldn't finish this one either. This series is not for me, it seems.

ETA: Oh how I love these books!! And Buck/Miller isn't anything like I imagined he'd be. The boys got a lot of depth & layers to him that's for sure. And Vi is her usual self & only added to the laughs.

Can't wait to read the next book which I'm assuming will be Randy's story.

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 ensued. 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

This was a funny, light hockey-player romance with Sunny, sister of Alex from book one, and Miller, stepbrother of Violet from book one. Once again, we see social media take down a former bad boy’s efforts to reform his ways and all the drama that ensues. I really liked the way this included a hero with a learning disability and characters with serious medical issues. A fun read perfect for when you’re in the mood for something light and snarky.

This one is definitely the weakest in the series (followed by Pucked Love). And I say this painly because I adore this author and love her books. So I guess, I'm just disappointed more than anything.

There's so much wrong with this story I don't even know where to start.

The slut-shaming is strong in this one. I mean, I've found that it's a strong re-occurrence in HH books. Pucked was bad on the slut shaming but manageable, so was

It has everything Helena can give in a book: It’s funny, romantic, sexy and surprisingly heartwarming. Pucked Up was more than I expected.

Sunny is so cute! Another solid book. I love that the story is an ongoing timeline instead of a retelling of timeline events. Those can get old.
It was nice to see Miller's side of everything and get to see some things he struggles with.

If I could give all the stars in the sky, Pucked Up would deserve them. Helena pulls out all the stops for this book! It had me in stitches, the side cramps were in full force from laughing so hard.

I had been waiting for Buck's story, and Helena didn't disappoint. The unfortunate mishaps of Buck and Sunny are a story worth reading again and again! While Pucked was more sexual, Pucked Up gave you a much needed story. I'll be impatiently waiting for the third book! ~ Kelly, 5 stars

3.5 Stars. It's funny I wasn't sure I was going to like Miller..but I did. It was Sunny I had a hard time with. She was a hypocrite. When she went on that trip I think I actually growled. Like a full on WTF are you doing growl. I understand where her insecurities came from, but it started to become a broken record. My favorite part was when Miller walked away and started the life he wanted to live and didn't pander to what she wanted.

Miller was fun, loyal, and so kind. He bent over backwards to

I can’t believe I forgot how HILARIOUS Miller “Buck” Butterson was! He absolutely had me on my toes the whole time, listening to everything going on inside his head. One minute, I’d be melting all over the place with his utter sweetness, and the next, I’d be snort-laughing from all his ridiculousness. It was just beyond entertaining!

I liked book one, but I never anticipated Pucked Up would pack the punch it did for me. I loved it. The overall mood for the story is pretty light, but it does hit some deeper points.

Honestly, I really wasn't expecting much from Buck, but, after getting to know him, he's found his way onto my top book boyfriends list. First off, his heart is as big as North America. He bumbles into the most ridiculous situations where you want to hide your eyes but can't help
