PUCKED Up (The PUCKED Series Book 2) – Helena Hunting

The 2nd standalone novel in The Pucked Series***

Miller “Buck” Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed up front teeth. After five years in the NHL, deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies, Miller has decided he’s ready for a girlfriend. A real, non-bunny girlfriend to take on dates, and not jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation.

Miller thinks he’s found that woman in his teammate’s sister. Except, unlike team captain and all-around nice guy Alex Waters—who happens to date his stepsister, Miller’s media reputation as a manwhore is well earned. Beyond that minor detail, Miller doesn’t know the first thing about relationships or the time and effort they require.

Miller learns—eventually—that if he wants to make Sunshine “Sunny” Waters fall for him, he’s going to have to do a whole lot more than show her his stick skills in the bedroom.

I found this instalment in the Pucked series to be a okay read but not as strong as the first, im not sure what was lacking.
I found myself liking Miller more in this book than the first where i thought he was a bit of a douche, he kind of did a 180 from the way he acted in Pucked changing his puck bunny using ways.
Sunny on the otherhand at times really got on my last nerve. Her character had such a immaturity about her i just wanted to shake her. Maybe her immaturity came about by the fact that Alex treated her like a child most of the time, like she couldnt make any choices for her self without the whole family butting in, drove me nuts.
Alex is a man of double standards, it was okay for him to date Miller’s sister but not for Miller to date his sister, even when they have had similar reputations with the puck bunnies in the past, another thing that grated on me with this book.
Violet kept up with her hilarious words of wisdom and one liners that lifted the whole book for me.
I just couldnt connect with the characters in this book, not like the first book.
I did like the fact that the book was told from Miller’s point of view.
