***A Standalone novel in The Pucked Series***
I’m NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance."
I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.
Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.
I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.
At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.
I shouldn’t want her.
But I do.
I should leave her alone.
But I won’t.


What can I say when I find out Helena Hunting is giving me another story from the Pucked series. I know she is not literally giving me the story but it feels (to me) as if it's a gift and I'm as happy as a kid in a candy store. I love this group of friends and every time I read about a character I look forward to the ones I already know and then I get all excited with trying to figure out who she is going to be writing about next. There is never enough of these characters and I just want more.

In Pucked Off we get Lance Romero's story and just when I think Randy "Balls" Ballistic is my favorite hockey player, I now can't stop thinking about Lance.
Lance may have some anger issues but with a past like his, it's no wonder he is one feisty red head on and off the ice. He's past haunts him and his reputation with the women perceives him even if it's not always the truth. With Lance's insecurities and self doubts his story tugged at my heart, will he be willing to let down his guard and allow a woman from his past help him realize his true worth?

Poppy O' Connor is our beautiful and loving heroine who is the massage therapist Lance is sent to. This may just be Poppy's second chance at love but it's too bad Lance has no idea of  who she is. Trying to keep things professional Poppy decides to keep their past memories to herself.  With Lance having issues with being touched, he finds that Poppy's hands are the only ones he feels comfortable with. Will she be able to work with the one man whose kiss she has never been able to forget? 

Pucked Off is so much more than I ever expected, one tortured soul who carries a heavy burden and one strong woman who wants nothing more than to fall in love with the man she has always dreamed about. Will Lance's past, stalker ex-girlfriend and trying to protect Poppy from the bunnies and his life in front of the camera be what pushes her away?
Helena Hunting gives another 5 Star read with this stand alone novel ( I promise it's worth reading the series).


Armed with my clipboard, I walk down the hall to the waiting room. Lance is impossible to miss. Despite the fact that he’s wearing a sweatshirt and the hood is covering half of his face, he’s more than six feet of broad, hockey-playing man. He’s so wide his shoulders encroach on the chairs on either side, which would explain why no one is sitting next to him. He’s slouched down so his head rests on the back of the chair, and his hands are clasped in his lap, a baseball cap hanging off one knee. His lips, plush and soft—I know since I’ve had them on mine; it might have been a decade ago, but I remember it clearly—are parted. He looks like he’s asleep. I clear my throat. “Lance Romero?” He doesn’t move. Bernadette, the receptionist, gives me a meaningful look. I clear my throat again and call his name a second time. He jolts awake and the hood falls back, exposing his face. It’s not in good shape. He has a black eye and bruises on his left cheek. There’s a fly bandage across one eyebrow. Sadly, he’s still hot. He blinks a few times, yawns, and smacks his lips, his tongue touching the split in the bottom one. His gaze sweeps the room and finally lands on me. Heat explodes in my cheeks and courses through my limbs, warming me from the inside out as he starts at my sneaker-clad feet and roams up over my yoga pants to my company-issued T-shirt before stopping at my face. I can’t look directly at him for more than a couple of seconds. I sincerely hope he doesn’t remember me. I cannot go there and also be professional. I’m sure the smile he gives me has melted many a panty off a slutty bunny. Mine stay right where they’re supposed to, wedged up my ass. I force a polite, professional veneer. “I’m ready for you now.”
