Review: Hooking Up by Helena Hunting

Amalie Whitfield is the picture of a blushing bride during her wedding reception–but for all the wrong reasons. Instead of proclaiming his undying love, her husband can be heard, by Amalie and their guests, getting off with someone else. She has every reason to freak out, and in a moment of insanity, she throws herself at the first hot-blooded male she sees. But he’s not interested in becoming her revenge screw.

Mortified and desperate to escape the post-wedding drama, Amalie decides to go on her honeymoon alone, only to find the man who rejected her also heading to the same tiny island for work. But this time he isn’t holding back. She should know better than to sleep with someone she knows, but she can’t seem to resist him.

They might agree that what happens on the island should stay on the island, but neither one can deny that their attraction is more than just physical.

Filled with hilariously scandalous situations and enough sexual chemistry to power an airplane from New York City to the South Pacific, Hooking Up is the next standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Helena Hunting, the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series and Shacking Up.

ALL THE STARS! EVERY SINGLE GD ONE OF THEM! cue the fireworks because this book is  deserving of a sparkly light show!

Hooking Up can simply be described with one word: EPIC! I fell hard and fast for Helena Hunting's latest novel. All the sizzle, all the swoon, this one had my heart melting and left me with stars and a few tears in my eyes. By the third chapter I was beyond smitten and in book nerd heaven; total utter book bliss was happening!! Hooking up was everything and so much more than I'd ever expected, hoped or dreamed for when I tapped open this book. It was too easy to devour, chock full of so many fun and sexy times, and with emotions at every flip of the page...GAH! Now I'm left sulking, wanting more! I didn't want it to ever end. Pure 100% Epic! Hooking Up is what book hangovers are made of!!!... and what bbf's should aspire to be *wink*

What should be one of the best days of Amalie's life quickly turns into one of the most heartbreaking and embarrassing scandals to happen in her life, on her wedding day of all days. Her newly dubbed douche bag husband, getting a blowie for all the guests to hear, and it wasn't the bride providing her groom's release. Holy wow. Ok, that's certainly one way to start a book and grab my attention! This is just the icing on the cake because it gets so much more epic and jaw dropping as the story line moves along, one hilarious and mistimed chain of events, one after the other. I ate it up, all of it. The angsty drama, yeah, top up my glass cause I'm enjoying this waaaaaay to much!

I love when the heartbroken and jilted bride goes on her honeymoon alone because you know what that means my smut loving book friends! Lots and lots of hot a$$ mf'n sexy times are to be had! And boy are they had. Lubed up and buzzing away, Bora Bora is the place to be *wink* with a Hottie Hook Up things are taking a turn for the better... or are they? Hah. You know they are! Reality can wait a few weeks.

I lace my hands behind my head and lean back against the pillows. "Have at it, baby." She snorts. "Could you be any more cocky?" "I don't know, you're the one who's full of mine, you tell me." "You should shut up and just lie there and look good so you don't ruin this for me."

Mr. Hottie Hook Up, sexcapades, the drama waiting to be dealt with back in NY, feelings and love towards another man can't come into play on this solo honeymoon of heartbreak but, ya know... shit happens LOL. The internal battle of right and wrong rages on.

'I came three times. During sex. That's like being told unicorns are real. And then actually seeing one.'

I cannot gush enough about how much I love this book, it's characters and my new author crush on Helena Hunting! I'd have this books babies if it were possible but ya know... paper cuts and stuff lololol oooooook but seriously though, READ THIS BOOK!!!! You'll find out quick what my obsession is all about!

'... and then is all hits me, like a huge cock in the face.'

Review: Pucked Over by Helena Hunting

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.

My blog partner Amanda has been raving about this series since she read the first book. So when we received an invite to receive an ARC of this book I thought I would give it a try and see what all the hype was about. To be honest I have never been a hockey fan. I’m not sure why but it is just a sport that has never really interested me. However…. I’m pretty sure that’s all about to change after reading Pucked Over! Point me to the hockey players pleeeeeease!

This was such a sweet, heartwarming story with very low drama. I love these kinds of easy reads where you feel a connection right away with the characters and fall in love with them and their story. I was invested in both Randy & Lily right from the very beginning. I read this one very slowly on purpose because I wanted to savor that feel good feeling, you know the one where you have butterflies in your stomach and you are sighing because you love the book so much. Yes this story gave me that.

Randy & Lily’s relationship was so much fun. They had hilarious sarcastic and sometimes very naughty banter with one another. Their personalities were so funloving and they were incredible together in the bedroom…..or bathroom……or car….or anywhere really for that matter! LOL
Their love for one another developed slowly and over time, it wasn’t rushed or instant love but it was instant lust, which we all know can definitely happen.

Helena Hunting will most certainly have a hit on her hands with this one and now I need to go back and read the first two books because I know I will love them as much as I did this one. Pucked Over was a fun, loving, hot, sexy read with outstanding writing and very,very loveable characters. Excellent book! 

Randy & Lily

I am absolutely loving this sports romance series!! It's light and funny and complicated and emotional all at the same time!!! Pucked and Pucked Up were fantastic reads but I think Randy Ballistic may have won my heart!!!! Don't get me wrong I love insta love and alphas but it was such a nice change to read a book where they actually start as somewhat friends and work their way towards it....

Straight laced Lily is on the rebound and thinks Randy may just be the distraction she needs, Randy is a known manwhore but has this undeniable attraction to Lily, so they decide to have some fun while it lasts but as soon as it gets to serious they have to break it off. Well this leads to some seriously hilarious encounters or should I say bathroom counters!!!! Anyways when things go beyond friends with benefits can Randy Balls man up or this the end of something that could have been epic??????

I'm really hoping this isn't the end of this series. Helena has this comical sports romance down pat and I want more!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Review: Pucked Up by Helena Hunting

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.

Motherpucker, Helena did it again!!! Pucked up was HILARIOUS!!!

This is the story of Miller "Buck" Butterson. Team mate of Alex Waters and brother to Vi. Renowned playboy, Buck loved his puck bunnies, that was until he met Alex Waters sister Sunny. Now Sunny didn't just jump him like every other woman and he has to work to get the relationship he wants with her. Although he is avoiding all women, he still manages to get himself in some awkward situations with the bunnies and of course they keep showing up on social media for Sunny to see. It isn't that Sunny is a jealous woman but after you see gorgeous woman draped all over your man day after day you have to start to think it might not be worth it...

I loved Buck he was so sweet and actually had some depth to him. Sunny was also an amazing character who I felt people could relate too. And some of the ridiculous situations they got themselves into were hilarious! I, myself, couldn't put the book down because I had to know what crazy mishaps was going to happen next and of course to find out if they could make it work.

All in all I PUCKING loved this book. It was a light, easy, funny read mixed with some steam and drama. Perfection!!
