RATING : 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Really enjoyed this one!
Pucked up revolves around Miller “Buck” Butterson (brother of Violet and teammate to Alex Waters from Pucked) who falls for Sunny, Alex’s younger sister.
I must say, from the impression Violet left of Buck from Pucked, I was expecting some silly jock man-whore. But after getting to know him, I found him to be such an incredibly sweet character with a huge heart.
He spends majority of the book trying to get himself out of comical ridiculous situations that don’t quite go according to plan and that get him in some hot water with Sunny. Though there are comical moments and one liners that had me giggling…
“Then reality slapped her in the face like an unwashed dick.” (I KNOW I KNOW that it so gross, but that line seriously got me LOL)
…..I didn’t find this story as laugh out loud funny as I did Pucked. There seemed to be more serious topics discussed like Buck’s dyslexia, which left me actually feeling sympathy for him. But even with this, I still found it really enjoyable and loved the romantic moments that were thrown in.
“Speaking of bed, I’d like to go there now.”
“You tired, sweets? You wanna go to sleep?”
“No. I want you to love me.”
“You’re not tired of being loved yet?”
She touches her lips to mine. “Never.”
HOW SWEET ARE THEY?!
All in all this was a light, funny read with a sweet ending. And though I was expecting a totally different book than what I got, Helena did a great job of taking a character like Buck who was preconceived as a dumb man whore and made me easily adore and root for him throughout the story.
I definitely am looking forward to the third book in the series (Pucked Over), and I have a good idea who the couple will be. And if it’s who I think it is, I know it is going to be awesome!
