As an NHL player, relationships haven’t been my thing. Shrouded in secrecy and speculation, they never last very long. But then that’s what happens when you require an NDA before the first date.

Until Charlene. She’s like a firefly. She’s elusive, and if you catch her she’ll burn bright, but keeping her trapped dulls her fire and dims her beauty.

I caught her. And as much as I might want to keep her, I’ll never put the lid on her jar. Not at the risk of losing her. So I’ve let her set the rules in our relationship.

But as long hidden secrets expose us both, I discover exactly how fragile Charlene is, and how much I need her.

We’re all broken. We’re all messed up. Some more than others. Me more than most.

Excerpt:

You’re turning twenty-six. It’s your champagne birthday, so we need to do something fun.” Violet bounces, making her boobs shake and my mimosa slosh perilously. “It should be themed! We can all wear leather chaps!”

“Could you be any more cliché?” I roll my eyes. “Just to be clear, Darren doesn’t own chaps.”

“Just a ball gag and a mask with no eye holes, according to Alex.”

And we’re back to my sex life. I knew I was getting off so easy.

I wonder if Darren is catching this kind of heat today. I seriously doubt it’s worse than what I’m getting since I don’t think his friends are likely to push his buttons, but I’ll have to ask when I speak to him next. I’m not sure when that will be, either. The message I sent about Gertrude was pretty straightforward and doesn’t necessarily require a response. Maybe I should’ve worded it differently.

Sunny raises her hand, like we’re all still in middle school and she’s waiting her turn to speak. “Wouldn’t a mask with no eyeholes be dangerous? You wouldn’t be able to see where you’re going.” Her eyes widen, and she looks around the room. “And what’s a ball gag?”

I honestly love that Sunny has grown up in this highly overinformed society and still manages to be innocent.

“Yeah, Char, wouldn’t a mask with no eyeholes be dangerous?” Violet props her fist on her chin and smiles. “And please, do explain what a ball gag is.”

“I’m not sure you really want the answer to that, Sunny.” Poppy gives me a look I can’t quite decipher.

Sunny twirls her hair around her finger. “Why not?”

“Where’s the harm in a little bondage-sex education? It’s not like Miller’s ever going to go out and buy either item for her. First of all, Alex would murder him, and secondly, I don’t think that’s Miller’s thing.”

Sunny’s face lights up, and she does jazz hands. “Oh! I think I know what Miller’s thing is!”

Lily grins. “Eating your cookie?”

“He really likes to do that, a lot. When my belly gets too big I’ll have to watch from the mirror.” She gets a faraway look in her eyes. “But he has another thing! Kind of like how you and Randy are always getting it on in bathrooms, except I think it’s a bit more sanitary.”

“And it doesn’t cause thousands of dollars of damage,” Violet adds.

Lily throws her hands up in the air. “That sink was already falling off the wall. It’s not my fault it broke!”

“That was one expensive orgasm,” I say.

“And Randy says it was worth every penny.” Lily’s smile is devious as she bites her knuckle, then turns to Sunny. “Anyway, back to Miller’s thing.”

Sunny wiggles around excitedly in her chair. “So Miller paints my toenails for me.”

“Miller’s thing is painting your toenails?”

“Yes. Well, no. I think he likes my toes.” Her fingers go to her lips, and she looks around the room, her cheeks flushing.

“Say what now?” Violet asks.

”Sometimes he kisses them.” She covers her mouth with her palm and says something unintelligible.

Violet sits forward in her chair. “Hold on a second, does Buck have a foot fetish?”

“Um, I don’t know.” Sunny looks worried now. “Is that weird? Is it, like, mask with no eyeholes kind of weird?”

RECENZJA/REVIEW:

 

Na początku chciałabym uczcić koniec serii Pucked minutą ciszy…

 

A teraz na serio. Miałam wielkie oczekiwania co do Pucked Love, w końcu to ostatnia część tej niesamowitej serii. A to, co zaserwowała nam Helena Hunting to istne fajerwerki! Historia Charlene i Darrena okazała się być jedną WIELKĄ NIESPODZIANKĄ! Książka jest naładowana emocjami aż do ostatniej strony! I choć byłam pewna, że Lance Romance na zawsze będzie moim hokejowym nr 1 to po przeczytaniu Pucked Love musiał zrobić miejsce dla Darrena… (sorry, Lance… jakoś to przeżyjesz ;))

 

Postacie Charlene i Darrena znamy już od pierwszej części serii. Charlene jest najlepszą przyjaciółką szalonej Violet, a Darren jest kumplem Alexa, a zarazem członkiem tej samej drużyny hokejowej. Przez wszystkie 5 części serii Pucked otrzymywaliśmy skrawki ich historii. Teraz nadszedł czas, by poznać ją w całości i rozwiać aurę tajemniczości, która towarzyszyła ich związkowi. Ale czy to się uda, jeśli oboje skrywają sekrety nie tylko przed innymi, ale także przed sobą nawzajem? Przez lata, w których byli razem, wypracowali sobie pewnego rodzaju komfort, ale zamiast iść do przodu – stoją w miejscu. Dopiero ujawnienie ich największych tajemnic pozwoli temu związkowi ewoluować… lub po prostu go zniszczyć.

 

Historie z przeszłości bohaterów kompletnie mnie zaskoczyły. Nigdy nie podejrzewałam, że za całą fasadą tajemniczości kryje się tyle bólu i wstydu. Odkrywanie sekretów Charlene i Darrena obudziło we mnie ogromne pokłady współczucia, empatii, a także zrozumienia. I muszę zaznaczyć, że Darren zasługuje na owacje na stojąco! Jego cierpliwość, oddanie i miłość do Charlene jest na wagę złota. Nawet pokuszę się o stwierdzenie, że jest IDEALNYM chłopakiem. Mogę go zatrzymać dla siebie?

 

Wszyscy fani serii Pucked MUSZĄ przeczytać tę część. Po pierwsze – dla Charlene i Darrena, aby poznać tę parę z zupełnie innej strony. Po drugie – dla całej ekipy, która towarzyszyła nam od pierwszej części. Na pożegnanie autorka pozwoliła nam zerknąć do życia bohaterów, a także pokazała nam, że czasami najbliższą rodziną są Ci, z którymi nie wiążą nas więzy krwi. I po trzecie – dla typowego dla Heleny Hunting poczucia humoru. Mimo ciężkich tematów zawartych w książce, a także ogromu emocji, autorce udało się zawrzeć w tej części zabawne wstawki, które jak zawsze rozbawiają do łez.

 

Świecie Pucked – będę tęsknić!

 

 

ENG:

 

 

At the beginning I would like to honor the end of the Pucked series with a minute of silence…

 

And now seriously. I had great expectations about Pucked Love, in the end this is the last part of this amazing series. And what Helena Hunting served to us is real fireworks! The story of Charlene and Darren turned out to be one BIG SURPRISE! The book is loaded with emotions up to the last page! And although I was sure that Lance Romance will always be my hockey no.1, after reading Pucked Love he had to make room for Darren … (sorry, Lance … you will survive it ;))

 

Charlene and Darren’s characters are known from the first part of the series. Charlene is the best friend of crazy Violet, and Darren is Alex’s buddy and also a member of the same hockey team. Through all 5 parts of the Pucked series, we received scraps of their story. Now is the time to get to know it completely and dispel the aura of mystery that surrounded their relationship. But will it work if they both hide secrets not only from others, but also from each other? Over the years they have been together, they have developed a kind of comfort, but instead of going forward, they stand still. Only the disclosure of their greatest secrets will allow this relationship to evolve … or simply destroy it.

 

Stories from the characters past shocked me completely. I never suspected that there was so much pain and shame behind the entire facade of mystery. Discovering the secrets of Charlene and Darren has awakened a great deal of compassion, empathy and understanding in me. And I must point out that Darren deserves a standing ovation! His patience, devotion and love for Charlene is worth its weight in gold. I’m even tempted to say that he’s the PERFECT boyfriend. Can I keep him for myself?

 

All fans of the Pucked series MUST read this part. First of all – for Charlene and Darren, to get to know this couple from a completely different angle. Second – for the whole crew that accompanied us from the first part. For goodbye, the author allowed us to peek into their lives, and also showed us that sometimes the closest family are those with whom we don’t have blood ties. And thirdly – for a sense of humor typical for Helena Hunting. Despite the hard topics contained in the book, as well as the enormity of emotions, the author has managed to include in this part funny insertions that always make me laugh through tears.

 

Pucked world  – I will miss you!
