Author: Helena Hunting
tl;dr recommendation: FUNNY SMUT ALERT. this is a must read.
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.
Hilarious and wonderfully smutty, Alex and Violet are so weird together and it’s so perfect.
Violet has been around her stepbrother Buck, an NHL player, enough to know that she has zero desire to ever be a puck bunny. She’s not the fuck em and chuck em type anyway, so she’s not overly concerned when she falls into the eyes of Alex Waters, one of Buck’s teammates. She would have stayed away from Alex, but then he started speaking all literary and the blood rushed straight to her clit. I mean, can you blame the girl? A hot man picks up on a literary reference and all bets are off.
I could not stop laughing throughout this book. Violet is one of the weirdest characters I have EVER read, and I fucking loved her. She has a serious case of word vomit every time she opens her mouth. I’d say that she should install a new filter, but it’s too damn funny. This quirk of Violet’s endears Alex, but the man can’t catch a break with her. Of course, Violet is always WAY TOO QUICK to judge. She never gives him the benefit of the doubt, but Alex also hasn’t really earned it yet.
Alex’s monster cock (or Super MC, snuffie, or MC for short) is a key player in this book. So are Violet’s boobs, since Alex has the same weird fascination with them that Violet has for his MC. The sex scenes are off the charts hot and also super funny. I loved that Helena talks up the awkward shifts and weird positions. It made it so much more relatable and real.
There’s a substantial amount of geekery in this book & I loved that so much. I mean, I’m totally playing strip scrabble soon. I was also snort laughing every few pages and made a huge sadface when it ended. I love these two and I loved Helena’s writing. Five incredibly funny smutty stars.
Be prepared for a book hangover with a huge smile. READ THIS!
