With a famous NHL player for a step-brother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation many hockey stars come with. She' s smart enough to steer clear of those hot, well-built boys with unparalleled stamina. That is until she meets the legendary team captain—Alex Waters.
Violet isn' t interested in his pretty, beat-up face, or his rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet' s previous misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes more than just a hot body with a face to match.
In what can only be considered a complete lapse in judgment, Violet finds out just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. But what starts out as a one-night stand, quickly turns into something more. Post-night of orgasmic magic, Alex starts to call, and text, and e-mail and send extravagant—and quirky—gifts, making him difficult to ignore, and even more difficult not to like.
The problem is, the media portrays Alex as a total player, and Violet doesn' t want to be part of the game.
I have to admit, this is the first Helena Hunting book I’ve read and I am NOT DISAPPOINTED. I’m always looking for a book that will give me a good giggle and I definitely found it in this book! This book is LAUGH OUT LOUD hilarious. It’s also got a little bit of sweet and a little bit of sexy going on in this book.
I am so glad I decided to check it out. Half way through I texted Melanie and told her that she NEEDED to check this book out. We both love a good laugh when it comes to our romances and I knew she’d love this one.
Violet is recently out of college and working as a junior account for a PR firm that specials in Sports Financial Management. Her stepdad Sidney is a scout for the NHL, her stepbrother plays for the NHL, and she’s straight surrounded by hockey.
Alex Waters is the captain for the Hawks, a professional hockey team. He’s a little nerdy and is well-versed in English Lit.
The characters in this book are great. I thought they were all very entertaining in their own right.
Violet is quirky and has no brain to mouth filter. She says whatever she’s thinking and a lot of it is down right dirty. I can be a bit inappropriate at times with my humor too, so with all the dirty talk in this book I wasn’t bothered a all.
I really enjoyed Alex too; I think he’s a bit more tame compared to Violet, but he could dish out as well. There was a part or two when he was being a dumbass, but he’s a boy and it’s expected! As we all know boys can be stupid, it always takes a hard lesson for them to learn! Alex definitely learns his in this book.
Buck, he’s not really all that deep, but when he was around he added even more hilarity to the book. Him and Violet may only be his step siblings, but he treats her like she’s blood. He was very overprotective of her at times and it was very sweet.
I think Helena should make this a series and give us books for Violet’s brother, Buck, her BFF Charlene and Darren?! I would love to see more of all of these characters!!
This book really entertained me and underneath the toilet humor it was a very sweet romance. If you’re a fan of books like the Chocolate Lovers series by Tara Sivec check this book out! I think you’ll enjoy it. 😉
