Being engaged to Alex Waters, team captain and the highest paid NHL player in the league, is awesome. How could it not be?
In addition to being an amazing hockey player, he’s an incurable romantic with an XL heart, and an XXL hockey stick in his pants. And he knows how to use it. Incredibly, orgasmically well. Alex is the whole package and more. Literally. Like his package is insane. Total world record holder material.
So it makes complete sense that Violet Hall can’t wait to nail him down to the matrimonial mattress and become Mrs. Violet Waters.
It’s so romantic.
Violet is totally stoked to set a date.
Eventually. At some point. Likely before the next millennium. Or when Violet stops getting hives every time someone brings up the wedding, and their mothers stop colluding on stadium sized venues. Whichever comes first.
The day we've all been (it can't just be me, right?) waiting for since the end of the first book. The wedding. You know, the thing everyone's mothers have been talking about--Alex Waters and Violet Hall's wedding. The very thing that has been giving Vi the case of the hives for the past few books. Vi and Alex are back again (like they really ever left) to finally, FINALLY tie the knot. *throws confetti*
In Forever Pucked, we see a whole new side of Violet--a side we never would have expected to see from her. We know Vi as the uber crass, unashamedly blunt, highly sexual, no-holds-barred girl in the previous books, but we get to meet an emotional Vi this time around. Something happens that shakes up Alex and Vi's entire world (thanks for punching me in the chest, Helena!), that brings out all their sides to the surface and come face to face with...everything. It also compels Vi to confront her fears, and Alex to face his insecurities and future. Readers will get an inside look in the depths of both Alex and Vi as they lay down their walls/bold personalities and make adult decisions for the both of them.
Vi is as balls to the walls crazy as she always is, but spending time with her mom, coupled with Alex's mom and they give her a run for her money. Yes, you read that right. If you've read Pucked, you wouldn't think that was even possible! Those two together are dangerous, and not because of all the wedding talk either. You think Vi is bad, but the mom's are worse (and that's saying something) and I couldn't stop laughing. The things these ladies said/were up to were so crazy but funny at the same time. I mean, I wouldn't be laughing either if I were Vi, but I just couldn't help it. I guess we know where Vi gets her crass tendencies from then.
Their mom's aren't the only characters to make cameos; our favorite couples (and Lance) make appearances too, and boy did that come with its own surprises and bouts of laugh-inducing shenanigans. Buck and Sunny, and Lily and Balls (one last hip-thrust) I absolutely loved seeing the gang again for the holy matrimony and in all the events leading up to it. I hope you're ready for some devious antics that will cause secondhand embarrassment.
I ship Beaver + Super MC. Forever.
