I’m NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance."
I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.
Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.
I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.
At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.
I shouldn’t want her.
But I do.
I should leave her alone.
But I won’t.
Everyone needs a Lance in their life
Stars: 4.5 stars
My heart breaks and soars for Lance. After everything he has been through, he's finally found his happy place. She's sassy, sweet, and all around perfect for him. If only he would realize that he DOES deserve her.
The emotions pulled from this book are extraordinary. Just like the previous books in this series, there's a humor to it, but this one is a little more serious.
I highly recommend reading the other stories, but with this book it isn't a must. You can understand everything without them, but if read out of order, there may be some spoilers.
Get ready to be Romanced by Lance!
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Helena Hunting's work. She's a fantastic story-teller. She can switch between genres like no other. And this book is a conglomeration of angsty goodness, sweetness, sexiness, and humor. It packs a whopping emotional punch and will leave you reeling in the best way possible.
Lance is so, so broken. We only got a small taste of him in previous books, just enough to leave us wanting more. This book answers all your questions and then some. We get to see why Lance is the way he is and it's heartbreaking. We get to see the right girl walk into his life and completely turn it right side up. And I say that because Lance had a very skewed perception of himself and I feel that he was living upside down, so this girl rights all his wrongs.
It's a beautiful, emotional love story. Seeing a broken boy find his redemption in life and love is the best thing ever.
Lance is just plain amazing, and his girl is wonderful, in the way she is as a person and the way she holds strong on to Lance and helps him realize his self-worth.
This is one of Helena's best books to date and I absolutely recommend it, a million times over. It can be read as a standalone, but I would strongly suggest reading all the books in the Pucked series because they are all fantastic.
Lance was a total surprise. He had so much depth that he hides. I found myself rooting for him to get the girl from the start. He and Poppy make a great couple. Loved this story, love this series!!! Well done!!
