Forever Pucked by Helena Hunting is a terrific addition to the Pucked Series. NHL captain, Alex Waters and Violet Hall are back and planning their wedding. Too bad the thought of the wedding causes Violet to break out in hives due to an embarrassing experience in her past that humiliated her. It doesn’t help that her mother and mother-in-law are totally getting involved-yikes. Needless to say, it is the premise for one entertaining book. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for new adult and adult audiences. It primarily takes place in Chicago. The story is told from both Alex’s and Violet’s point of views.
It’s hard not to like Alex. He has a huge heart. He takes good care of Violet. He is creative. Oh and he is captain of a professional hockey team. He understandably shows some insecurities in this novel. Violet is great for comic relief. The things that come out of that girl’s mouth are too much. She had me continually laughing. She is smart and clever. I like how she got Alex’s mom to try a new hairstyle – that was priceless. Then there is the rest of the crew. So glad they were all back.
Forever Pucked is not all laughs. There are some serious and scary things that also take place; events that change the lives of the characters forever. The plot was well-executed and believable. There are things that happen in the story that most people would be to relate to. I loved the epilogue. It was a wonderful conclusion to the story. This is a great series for anyone who enjoys contemporary sports romances and likes to laugh.
