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 girl Helena Hunting is at it again, killing us with these characters in this series. I love it! In Pucked Over, Randy Balls (hip-thrust) gets a chance at love whether he was looking for it or not, with the unlikely character Lily, whom we got to know in Pucked Up...and had a sort-of thing going on with. We get to know more about what went down between them in that book, and see where they go from there.
Lily gives Balls (hip-thrust one more time!) a run for his money. The back and forth between them, that we got a little taste in Pucked Up, is highly entertaining: Lily ruining Randy's underwear thus becomes his new favorite, and their bathroom hook-ups. Yeah, these two have a knack for getting it on in bathrooms--public and private. Eventually they graduate to walls and doors and a bed, but traditional is not what they're known for. Not quite like Vi, but almost. You'll see. These two are an unlikely pair to get together...Like, it's hard to even imagine them being friends, but then you know...opposites attract and all that.
Always with the dicks, Helena? LOL. Randy's has a personality of its own too, that's all I gotta say about it. Anyway, Lily and Randy keep each other on their toes a lot, with their polar and bold personalities, that makes it so much more fun to see them fight/deny their attraction and then epically fail when they find a bathroom to christen.
Can't have a cameo without Vi, and she is balls to the walls crazy as ever. Vi still has balls of steel. Probably the ballsiest of them all. Vi out-balls Balls. To give Randy Balls (lol) some credit, he did put up a good fight. She had me craughing with her ridiculous antics yet again. When will the wedding get it over with so Vi can calm the fuck down!?!??! Never change, vi.
Thank you for blessing us with this rowdy group that makes us laugh so much, Helena. The humor is why I love Helena Hunting so much. If you haven't already, I recommend (almost) everyone to read this series. I must warn you that this kind of wild and unique humor, that these books may not be for everyone, but you should give it a chance. It's HI-larious and that's no joke. You gotta have thick skin in order to handle this Canadian bunch/humor. Thick like molasses. Or maple syrup. Gotta love Canadians.
