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.
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!!
The series keeps gets better and better
I love, love, love the Pucked series by Helena Hunting. I could go on and on about the book, and find quotes, but there are so many other reviews out there with all that jazz :) I'll simply say that once I read the first book in the series, I was a goner and there was no turning back. Each book is a standalone read, but each book builds has the characters from the previous books so you can see what they're up too and how they grow a bit. I love this because as I fall in love with new characters, I get to see what's going on with some of my favorites from the series.
And Lance.... Lance is definitely a fan favorite. He's just a broken guy that meets his match, and when he does, you can feel the chemistry and magic between the characters. I won't mention who the heroine is, because if you're anything like me, you want to wait and read it for yourself :) I loved learning more about Lance and what made him ticked, and I enjoyed watching him fall in love <3 If you're on the fence, I'd say it's a definite must read. I have the e-book and the paperback edition. Who can resist that book cover??
