Summary

A standalone novel.

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.

Fantastic Story

This is such a wonderful story. A sweet girl, Poppy, helping a scarred boy, Lance, get through his awful childhood memories, that are messing with his head now that he is an adult.

The performances by the narrators were good, once you get over the truly awful accents! Lance is supposed to be Scottish, he sounds a mixture of American, Canadian and Irish!

Couldn't stop listening and have relistened often

This is my ultimate favorite in the series. I have listened to the story often, and also to favorite parts.

From all female characters, Poppy is the one most relatable to the average listener: the least amount of quirks, hang ups and out of the box opinions (Lily comes close). There's simply no way in hell Poppy would ever make a super hero cape for her lover's genitals like Violet would have done. She is a no nonsense girl, but with a romantic side to her personality as well.

The intricate details of the history both characters have together are woven throughout the story and give a very moving insight in how their lives are intertwined.

I felt the character Lance was given multiple layers in this story. His story, while moving and sad, is reflected in his bad choices in life. Their romance is realistic, personal and relatable (on the emotions side). You hear about their doubts, their fears and their hopes. From swooning to grief; the emotions this story envokes in the reader are quite intense at times. Loved the story. Hope Lance and Poppy will get their own follow up story, because I loved them.

But all in all a exciting listen.

Accents

Jacob morgen’s Scottish accent sounds very much like an Irish accent ( but I love the Irish accent)

So Pucking Sexy!

Lance is so Pucking sexy, and Poppy is one lucky girl. This book is strangely sweet... mostly because it was a surprise to find Lance to be such a sweetheart. Like earlier books in this series, Pucked Off is laugh aloud funny with quirky characters, flirty banter and a whole lot of delicious sexiness.

The ultimate in audio entertainment by a fabulous author and two talented narrators.

I review for the Guilty Indulgence Review Site.

My favorite of the Pucked series thus far!!

I loved Lance and his whole story. You could feel his story building up in the Pucked series, and I wasn't sure I would like him very much because of his history in the books. But Helena was a master mind at flipping everything around on me and now I love, love, love Lance Romance Romero.
Also I think this was my favorite narration so far. Jacob and Rose did a fantastic no with this duo.

Pucked Off

Ahh, these books just keep getting better and better. Lance and Poppy are a very close second to my favorite couple. I love how open and vulnerable Lance was, he didn’t want to have weaknesses but he does and he deals with them the best way he can. The fact that Poppy helps him heal without even know it is kind of special.

The destructive nature of Lance and his past really dragged him down you can’t help but want to see him get his HEA. I liked that there was a conflict without it being dramalama.

Fun scene I loved was then the girls came to the rescue. I loved that.

The narration was fantastic Jacob Morgan does accents well. He didn’t overdo it, it was just right.

Goodbye Pucked Series <3

Lance has always been my top Pucked male and not just because of his ascent. Okay that has a lot to do with it. However though he likes to fight, and sleep with a bunch of bunnies. However he is also loyal and loves gummy bears which makes me smile at childlike he can be. He also has a thing about being touched and is really broken. Not all of it was thanks to Tasha but she's sure as hell didn't help. Tash in the beginning of the series didn't seem bad person, and I even thought she may be a good choice for Lance. However reading this book will change your mind quick.

The actual love interest had a little camo in the second book and came back to help Lance with his problems. I loved Poppy in how she knew Lance before he became a hockey player. They reconnect because Lance needed a massage therapist, and though he was didn't want to he went. I love how she is the one who can break down Lance's defenses making him happy.

There interaction especially in the beginning was cute. For the simple reason Lance didn't know how to talk to Poppy. Sure Lance knows how to flirt and seduce however doesn't mean he knows how to deal with someone he wants to date. So watching him fumble was the cutest thing and I had to pause a couple times over the cuteness of it.

Poppy and Lance did had some issues with the whole if we don't talk about it we wont ruin the start of their relationship. Which I was blah about however it lead to a Violet and Lily step in, and they worked it out so its fine.

I also love the little snippets of the other Pucked characters. The little you see of them is enough to make the book a full experience. I love the audiobook as I've loved all the other ones. To hear the ascent and just get involved in the book by how Rose Dioro & Jacob Morgan. Plus with the fact that Hunting brings humor with heart felt moments made the 9 hours and 36 mins not long at all.

Am so sad that am saying goodbye to this series with all this great couples that I got to know and laugh at and with. Though I would have love to know what the heck is going on between a couple that we never knew what really was going on. Am fine with this conclusion, and just glad I got my Lance story and that he got his happy ever after and there's no more Tash.

Got my Poppy and Lance! Score!!

I was more than excited for the story of Lance!!! To have Poppy be his taming forever.... couldn't be better! Loved every word from Helena Hunting. Then the voices and emotion from Rose Dioro and Jacob Morgan! I'm still swooning from the triple combination. Will NOT be my last book from this author, I'm a huge fan. To hear how Rose and Jacob work together is something I cannot get enough of.

THEY GET BETTER AND BETTER

What did you love best about Pucked Off?

How broken and awkward Lance was. How sweet their story is.... fate kept bringing them back together

What does Rose Dioro and Jacob Morgan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

They are both exceptional narrators. They bring angst and emotion that is really hard to portray I would suspect. Both do believable accents which is so important. I love listening to these 2 narrators together!!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The moment when she realizes he remembers..... swoon....

Any additional comments?

This is my favorite so far in the PUCKED series. I think that's commendable to keep the underlying storyline and characters interesting. Helena Hunting does a fantastic job. 5 stars all the way and well worth a credit!!!

Well HotDamn Romance

Lets just say Lance isn't the player I thought him to be, and Tash wasn't who she seems from the previous books. OMG and Pippa, she is so sweet and understanding... the total opposite of Tash. No spoilers here, well worth your last credit. Run to the checkout with this Hockey hunk listen!!
