Review & Cocktail: The Pucked Series by Helena Hunting

About Pucked (Pucked, #1)…

With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. She isn t interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. When Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet s misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more

About Pucked Up (Pucked, #2)…

Miller “Buck” Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed up front teeth, and he was drafted into the NHL during his first year of college. After five years of deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies across the Continental US and parts of Canada, Miller is ready for a girlfriend. A real girlfriend of the non-bunny variety. One he takes on dates and doesn’t jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation.

Miller thinks he’s found that woman in his teammate’s sister. Except, unlike Alex Waters, center, team captain and all round nice guy—who happens to be dating his step-sister—Miller’s manwhore reputation is well earned, and not blown out of proportion by the media. Beyond that minor detail, Miller doesn’t know the first thing about having a girlfriend. But he’s determined to make it happen.

What he doesn’t take into account is the amount of time and effort relationships require, or that constantly letting bunnies take selfies with him to post all over social media isn’t going to win him any points in the boyfriend department. Miller learns—not so quickly—that if he wants to make Sunshine “Sunny” Waters fall for him, he going to have to do a whole lot more than show her his stick skills in the bedroom.

About Pucked Over (Pucked, #3)…

Lily LeBlanc isn’t versed in the art of casual sex, but after seven years in an on-again, off-again relationship, she’s definitely willing to give it a shot. And who better to try it with than her best friend’s boyfriend’s best friend? What could possibly go wrong? Nothing at all.

NHL player, Randy Ballistic, lives up to his last name on the ice and in the bedroom. His best friend and teammate has recently given up the puck bunnies and traded them in for a real girlfriend. And she just happens to have a seriously feisty, extra-hot best friend on the rebound. Randy’s more than happy to be Lily’s spring board back into the dating scene.

Casual sex is only casual until those pesky things called emotions get involved. Once that happens, someone’s bound to gets pucked over.

Helena Hunting’s Pucked Series is so good. I mean, really really good. And if I didn’t have a thing for professional hockey players before *grimace…I kinda did already* then I totally do now. All three books are so amazing, I can’t recommend reading them enough.
Read in this order:
  1. Pucked
  2. Pucked Up (Check out my review for Pucked and Pucked Up here!)
  3. Pucked Over
In response to the Pucked Series, I was inspired to whip up a new drānk. And because booze and hockey go together like syrup and pancakes this was an easy mix.
REAL TALK: I need a drink while watching one of the sexiest most animalistic sports out there. That is how the Puck Me Up came to be. Cause whether your watching or reading about hockey, you’re bound to get a little hot under the jersey. So mix this drink and sip it while you simmer.


the Puck Me Up


  • 2 Parts Cola  (I’m a Coke gal, but you can use whatever brand you want.)
  • Maraschino cherry


  1. Measure out the liquids and place them in a tumbler over ice.
  2.  Pop Drop the cherry on top *wink—poke—wink*


This is where the magic happens—in your mouth. Burnett’s Maple Syrup Vodka is the f*ucking star here. Without it, you’re just drinking a spiked cherry coke. Suggestions: Sip this drink and savor that shit, because it’s too good. Do what I do and think of all the hot guys in Helena’s books (Alex, Miller and Randy!) while ya drink the puck up! But what I really want you to do, is think about having something delicious from Canada in your mouth. Whether that be maple syrup, candy, or some hot piece of a Canadian hockey player— that’s entirely up to you!
