As an NHL player, relationships haven’t been my thing. Shrouded in secrecy and speculation, they never last very long. But then that’s what happens when you require an NDA before the first date.

Until Charlene. She’s like a firefly. She’s elusive, and if you catch her she’ll burn bright, but keeping her trapped dulls her fire and dims her beauty.

I caught her. And as much

L O V E D!! I never thought this day would come but....Lance has been topped. I didn’t see it coming, but I’m in so much love with Darren!! He’s my new number #1 Helena Hunting BBF! ❤️❤️

A couple things, I’m really digging these Audible exclusive releases! If you’re a Romance package subscriber, they’re included. Eeeeeeep!

Back to the book! There a few things that really elevated this book above the rest for me.

I kiss her, and my whole world seems to come together and fall apart at the same time. She’s everything. She’s all the missing pieces I need to feel whole.

The ”Pucked” series is my absolute most favorite sports romance series of all time. I will always put Helena Hunting in the highest regard for creating Alex ”Super MC” and Violet Waters. All of the characters are incredible, but those two will forever hold a special place in my heart. But

Helena has done it consistently and this is the 6th time she's done it again!!!
I wanna do the cheesy "eeeeeeeek.....this is the best book....she's done it again.....cant believe what I read" except this would all be true!!


Her books are laugh-a-thons with a lot of heart. You cannot walk with these characters and NOT fall head-over-heels in love with them. Diehard friendships and super strong bonds of brotherhood define this family of lovable weirdos- Violet & Alex Super MC, Lily and Randy Balls

Overall, I didn't love this book but I also didn't hate it. I guess disappointment would be the key word when it comes to this one because I definitely was looking forward to it. Now, it can easily be that is not the book and just me and what I expect from a book, and I might as well be in the minority for this one.

I won't go into a rant, or I'll try not to. I love this author, she can write some fantastic books, especially the angstier ones. The Pucked series has been hit or miss for me. I str

I throughly enjoyed this story. It has all the feels for a good romance story. Between all the witty banter between all the characters, leaving me laughing, to all the swooning I did, the times I cried because of the sad situations these amazing characters found themselves in, and to all the happy smiles I had countless times throughout the whole book. This story captivated me from the prologue and kept me hooked to the very last page.

How can I pen to words how much the Pucked series has meant to me? How much this series has made me feel. This three-year journey of laughs, love, swoon, and soul wrapped itself around and never let me go. Characters who felt real endeared themselves to me, quickly becoming my family, and I’m not ready to leave them behind. I want Pucked to last forever. Forever Pucked.

On December 30, 2015, I devoured Pucked and fell fast in love with the quirky and fun, Violet, and the smart and sweet alpha, A

It only took me to read eight Helena Hunting books, but I can finally say that she's not the author for me. Now I can rest in peace never reading a HH book again in my life and my brain will not find any 'what ifs', cause I really tried and thank you, but no thank you.

Pucked Love is the sixth book in the Pucked Series. The Pucked Series is by far my favorite Sports Romance Series of all time. The characters are unique and each book in the series offers passion, romance, humor, and hours and hours of non-stop entertainment. In Pucked Love, we finally learn the truth about Darren Westinghouse, the intense alpha male who exudes intrigue, and his firefly Charlene Hoar. Charlene and Darren have been

I just want to put this out there, the Pucked series is legit THE BEST sports romance series you’ll EVER come across hands down. Each book and their characters burrow deep into your heart and soul and leave a permanent mark. A mark that will never ever be erased or forgotten because they’re simply that

This story must have been my most highly anticipated PUCKED novel yet.

Darren and Charlene were THE most mysterious couple in this entire series. We've known them for years now and had our suspicions, ideas and expectations. They were the couple that everyone wanted to read about. I'll just mention Mr Grey and the pearl necklace. :D

I'm happy to report that the story far exceeded my expectations.

I loved Darren. He might just be my new favorite PUCKED hero yet.

This story was ok and likeable. I liked the humor very much. The sex scenes for the most part were up to par and hot as hell. I liked Charlene, she was a quirky fun heroine and I enjoyed her kinky sex games with Darren. What it lacked for me was substance. I really needed a bit more development regarding the characters and the plot. I would definitely recommend it, as it isn't a bad book.

In short:

I have loved every book in this series. Each couple have been so well written and the stories have gripped me.

This was the book I was desperate to read.

This was the book that blew the others out of the water.

Ms Hunting creates magic when she puts pen to paper and Pucked Love is pure romance with all the sexy and the humour you would expect mixed in with some poignant moments. Darren and Charlene are my Top Book Couple of the year so far.

The last installment in the Pucked series is finally here!


But before I get to my review, I think it would be fitting if we take a look back at my experience while reading this series. I've never fully reviewed any of the previous Pucked books before, mainly because it was not love at first sight when I started this series and I so badly wanted to love it since it's such a beloved series among romance readers in the community. I actually still have a lot of not so nice things to say about the fir

Fair warning, I don’t listen to audible, but there was no way I was waiting to get my hands on Darlene!! I needed them, and guess what I loved it. I love the narrators, I adore Charlene, and Darren was fantastic.

Charlene and Darren are not anything what I was expecting, they were more. These two are broken and damaged, and I love the they find a home within on each other. These two exemplify how a family isn’t just blood but a group of people who come together of their choos

Years ago I had the pleasure of reading Pucked. It was a first for the author and started the beginning of an amazing series where readers fell in love with the Hockey Playing Men and their women. Each of the couples was equals. Each person brought so much to the relationship and also folded into the big family they created. I had missed following each entry and happened to see this latest/last entry was on sale so I snapped it up.

“It’s always going to be me and you, Charlene. Whatever you need, I’ll be that for you.”

Maaaaan, how I fucking LOVED Darren and Charlene 's story. I love this book, I love the characters, I love the couples, I love the writing, I love the author. I just LOVE everything about this series. I'm SO sad it's come to an end. I can't believe this is actually the last book in the series. I may have even shed a few tears...

Helena Hunting concludes her hockey romance series Pucked, with an ultra-steamy, sincerely sweet and fun story about mysterious NHL star and the woman who captured his heart.

Chicago’s NHL right wing, Darren Westinghouse’s dating history is based on rumors. He’s known for his reticence and the fact that he’s never had a serious relationship until he met Cherlene who is as elusive as he is. She’s captured his heart and even though he wants to be hers forever, he’d never try to trap her. But wh

Fear of being trapped...
Darren Westinghouse is Chicago's NHL right wing hockey player and the most mysterious man in the league. Not one to open up and share anything with anyone, he is involved with Charlene Hoar, who also keeps a tight lip about everything that has to do with her past. A truly heart wrenching story about two broken souls who find each other, like two missing pieces who fit so well together... both suffering from abusive pasts and terrified of pressuring each other into somethi

All throughout Helena Hunting’s Pucked Series, she has provided small insights and brief details about who Charlene and Darren are as individuals and as a couple, and because of the limited information given, readers don’t really know these two characters very well. I mean…it’s clear that Charlene and Violet as well as Darren and Alex share incredible friendships and that they’ve both found a small group of friends who have become their family, but other than those facts and the random conversat ...more

Overall 5*

Pucked Love was such a surprising revelation and I loved it! Ms. Hunting took everything we thought we knew about Darren & Charlene and completely turned it on its head. I never thought I'd use the word precious when it came to Darren Westinghouse, but he turned out to be too precious for words! He, Lance, and Randy are my Pucked Trifecta.

I think this was the sweetest
