Lance is for all intense and purposes, on the outside looking in. While his team mates have all settled with their better halves, he's trying to shake off a bad apple that's rotten to the core.
Lances story is far more angst ridden than the other Pucked books. But of course just when things get too heart breaking, Violet pops up to offer some levity.
I cried, I laughed, then ugly cried some more. Pucked Off is a rollercoaster of a ride I didn't want to get off. Helena Hunting, you are my Jedi master, the Spock in a world of Kirks and I bow down to you.
If you read no other book this year, make sure it's Pucked Off.
I'd give this eleventy billion stars if I could.
I must have been on holiday when "Pucked Off" came out, because if I was around, I would have read it. So when it was on sale recently, I snapped it up. I wasn't going to miss out again. I've loved this series so much and so I was eager to read Lance's story and I gotta say that this book took me completely by surprise, but in a totally good way. It turned out to be one of my favourites of this series. If you haven't read this one yet, don't leave it any longer. Lance and Poppy's standalone second chance romance was a beautiful one.
As I had already met Lance in the previous books of the series, I had pretty much second-guessed how this book would go. I really thought I knew Lance, but this story changed my view of him and opened my eyes to what a gorgeous man he truly was. Lance made it so easy for me to fall in love with him and having made this discovery about his true personality and his back story, I wanted nothing but good things for him. As usual with me, I avoided reading the synopsis so I really thought that this novel would be all about Lance and Tash, but when I realised what was going on with the couple, I began to want different things. I could not understand how Lance and Tash could work out, so when Poppy entered the story, I breathed a sigh of relief.
What followed was a story that I loved every minute of reading. Poppy and Lance were so good together. Lance was deliciously sweet and made me swoon a hell of a lot and Poppy was the perfect girl that Lance wholeheartedly deserved. It made my heart so happy to see this pair fall for one another. This is a romance that I'm so glad that I read. It was another brilliant addition to what has been a fabulous series.
I also loved catching up with all of the "Pucked" gang. I adore every one of the characters in this series. If you haven't read this series yet, I highly recommend one-clicking. It contains all of the ingredients for the best sports romance series. It is by far my favourite in the genre.
I wondered how Lance Romero's story was going to play out because whist he did have moments where I liked him in previous books (Alex's nasty incident on the ice when Lance displayed great team loyalty), there were plenty of times that I thought he acted stupidly, recklessly and he came across as pretty selfish. How was Ms Hunting going to turn me around to Team Lance??
She did change my mind and at times my heart clenched at the things Lance had been through. His character is complex and dark and the book as a whole packs an entirely different vibe to the ones that came before it in this series. Having said that, there are some really comical moments that made me laugh out loud. I guess, in a way , this book brings a brooding quality with it that reminded me more of the Clipped Wings series - I adore those books too.
You need to just jump into this story and find out who the gorgeous heroine is who saves Lance from a desperately lonely existence. He really did seem quite alone at times. The gang rally round him - Randy is loyal as ever but it was Lily and Violet who made the most effort to mend him and his heart.
So why not 5 stars? IF YOU DON'T WANT TO READ A SPOILER STOP HERE -Just know it's a cracking read that will break your heart a little bit but will fix it again and leave you with the sweetest feeling ....The rest of you...c'mere......
I wanted a bit more of Lance and his girl without Tash hovering in the background. Even though she is physically absent for most of the book, I felt like Tash was a constant in his mind with her relentless pursuit (read that as stalking) of him. I hated that she had that much influence. I would have liked more of just Lance and his sweet girl after the Tash problem was resolved. As the 'baddie' in the book, Ms Hunting did an excellent job in making me despise Tash and even though Lance alludes to her having a screwed up childhood also, I felt no sympathy for the manipulative shrew at all.
HEA? Yes. Loved the ending.
Cheating? No. You do see Lance at the very start of the book with Tash and some other random woman which Tash has orchestrated. He is not with the heroine at that point. The sex scene is not romantic. At all.
I love this series and Lance's story did not disappoint. I'm looking forward to more about my favourite Hockey guys......
