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.

Amazing Love Story
This is more than just a hockey romance. It is about a man and a woman who are trying to see if they can be more than just two people who are combustible in bed. There is no shortage of sexy and sweat inducing scenes, but when you move beyond that you see two people who are trying to move beyond their troubled and broken pasts for a different future than once they ever imagined for themselves. This is a love story that will touch you in unexpected ways and light you on fire.
What a great way to end the series
What can I say about Pucked Love? I feel like it was the absolute perfect end to the Pucked series. My heart is absolutely breaking knowing that Darren and Charlene’s story was the last one but wow oh wow did it deliver! I have wanted a story about these two since reading the very first book in the series Pucked. We waited (sometimes impatiently) to find out the story behind the pearl necklace and the Doritos and now we finally know. Darren and Charlene are two broken people who find their broken counterparts in each other. Darren wants to be everything for Charlene but he’s afraid to hold her too long for fear of spooking her. Charlene had been the relationship type either so they are both skirting major secrets about their past to avoid pushing the other away. There are plenty of great laughs and lots of sexual chemistry that nearly melted my kindle it was so hot! This is a MUST READ! TRUST ME!!!
I Pucking loved it!
While I am sad to see this series come to an end, I am not sad that it ended with Darren and Charlene’s story. These characters have been with us since the beginning, in fact I am pretty sure 100% of Helena’s fan base have been asking for their story from the beginning too and she did not disappoint.
The chemistry between these two was well written, I enjoyed reading how they interacted with each other. The dialogue was really fun to read, Helena knows how to make this reader cackle out loud and cry silently all in the same book. It was great revisiting other characters too and seeing how the group has grown and changed over the course of a few years, which is important because it mirrors how real life works and that’s relatable.
Looking forward to what the future brings in terms of new books to read from Helena!
