Forever Pucked (Pucked #4) by Helena Hunting @HelenaHunting
4- 4.5 Stars
I love this series and so thrilled
Helena Hunting gave her fans another riotously hilarious, full-length novel
dedicated to Alex and Violet’s journey to forever.
amazing how a poorly thought-out one-night stand can turn into a forever kind
of love. Because that’s exactly what Alex is: myforever ”
I was excited mainly because
I missed my Alex Waters ~ the super sweet, incredibly sexy hockey player and my
favorite hero within the Pucked
series. I definitely did not get enough of this gentle giant and his monster
junk package in the last two installments, and I was due for a fix. Also, I
missed seeing his sensitive side, something that was missing especially when
facing off against Miller in Pucked Up.
Needless to say in Forever Pucked, Alex’s
character was exceedingly romantic and back to his sentimental, love smitten
self ~ the perfect soul mate for the off the wall loon that is Violet Hall.
Violet is head over heels
in love with Alex and knows deep down their love is everlasting. But when it
comes to planning a wedding with the ever-present meddlesome moms duo, even
thinking about it riddles Vi with fear. But when a tragic event rocks their
world, it was time for Vi to work around her anxieties and for Alex to take charge.
Drama and angst aside, it was definitely entertaining to see her torment – from
the moms sex-talk over sharing, to the sheer lunacy of her buddies and an
unforgettable adult-store shopping escapade, poor Vi had her hands full of
craziness to deal with.
The hilarity, the constant
over-sharing, the out of control raunchiness topped off by all of Vi’s hijinks,
made this a fun read for me. The laughter was endless. But what set this
romance apart from the others was the nail biting moments of drama laced within, which caused Violet to
reveal a deeper and more serious side of her character. No doubt Hunting pens
playfully amusing, light-hearted romantic comedies. Nevertheless, her writing
style does have a flair for intensity. This author did a wonderful job of
balancing both the elements of humor and solemnity, giving this tale more depth
and dynamics to its main characters.
As always, I enjoyed this
couple’s shenanigans. I loved seeing how this kooky cast of friends and family
interact with one another, guaranteeing me a bawdy yet fun, sexy read. And…Wow,
I adored that epilogue. If you are looking for amusing and dirty romances, I
recommend jumping into this series from its beginning. I will miss this crew
and hope there’s more to come with stories involving Lance Romero and Darren
