Review! Pucked Up By Helena Hunting

Miller “Buck” Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed up front teeth, and he was drafted into the NHL during his first year of college. After five years of deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies across the Continental US and parts of Canada, Miller is ready for a girlfriend. A real girlfriend of the non-bunny variety. One he takes on dates and doesn’t jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation.

Miller thinks he’s found that woman in his teammate’s sister. Except, unlike Alex Waters, center, team captain and all round nice guy—who happens to be dating his step-sister—Miller’s manwhore reputation is well earned, and not blown out of proportion by the media. Beyond that minor detail, Miller doesn’t know the first thing about having a girlfriend. But he’s determined to make it happen.

What he doesn’t take into account is the amount of time and effort relationships require, or that constantly letting bunnies take selfies with him to post all over social media isn’t going to win him any points in the boyfriend department. Miller learns—not so quickly—that if he wants to make Sunshine “Sunny” Waters fall for him, he going to have to do a whole lot more than show her his stick skills in the bedroom.

I was so excited about being able to read about my favorite Yeti, oh wait if you don’t know who Yeti is well then first off you need to read Pucked first and then you can proceed to Pucked Up.  I wanted to see more of Miller aka Buck aka Yeti to his step sister violet.

I have even always said when a man finds the woman who will not only own his heart but his soul, he will stop his manwhoring ways and that is exactly what Miller did when he met Sunny.  Now at first his intentions weren’t honorable and that lasted all of probably five minutes because once he started to get to know her he knew she was the one.   Miller stopped his manwhoring ways in an effort to prove to Sunny that she was who he wanted and even though he was a good boy, pictures taken out of their actual context continues to sabotage his attempts of proving to Sunny he has changed.  I loved Miller, he really was a good guy, he is sweet and has a huge heart.  I also loved his relationship for Violet, in Pucked you didn’t really get to see how close they really are with all of Violet’s Yeti jabs and all but those two may not be blood related but they are as tight as some true siblings are. 

Sunny.  Here is where I am torn.  I wanted to love her, because I knew she was who Miller needed in his life.  Someone who wasn’t a puck bunny, who liked Miller for Miller.  Unfortunately she decided to listen to her brother, who lets face it hates Miller, and her super bitchy best friend instead of opening her eyes and her heart to see that Miller has changed.  Trust in any relationship is a hard, trust in a long distance relationship is even harder, but only one-sided trust will destroy a relationship before it can even start.  Miller trusted Sunny, but no matter what Miller did, Sunny couldn’t open her eyes and just trust him.  I just couldn’t like her character, and I tried I promise I tried.

Pucked Up was more serious then Pucked was.  I loved the silliness that made Pucked , it is one of my favorite books from this year.  Pucked Up for me didn’t make that same mark but I still loved it.  I wish we could have seen more of the hilarity that drew me into this series to begin with.  Pucked Up made me love my yeti even more.  It also shows us that without trust there will never be a relationship and that could be the biggest pucked up thing after all.  I am looking forward to Pucked Over, I think I may have an idea on who it’s about, but even if I am wrong I can’t pucking wait to read it!
