Forever Pucked by Helena Hunting


     Being engaged to Alex Waters, team captain and the highest paid NHL player in the league, is awesome. How could it not be?
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.

 My Thoughts:

     This is one of those books that I couldn’t wait for it to come out so I could delve right into it and then it showed up on my Kindle and I couldn’t wait to read it! Once I started it though I suddenly didn’t want to because then it would be over and then I would be sad…yes, I’m a weirdo!  I told myself that I had a week to read it so just “take your time”.

     Taking my time is hard to do with these books because they are just so funny that you just don’t want to stop reading!  I managed to make it take around four day to read so I think that I showed great restraint. J
     Alex and Violet are now engaged and really happy but an embarrassing catastrophe at a previous wedding makes Violet extremely wary to have a big wedding of her own.  She’s klutzy and has no filter so what if something humiliating happens and she ruins what should be the happiest day of their lives?

     After Alex is injured rather badly during a game, Violet realizes that she loves him and wants to start a life with him so it doesn’t matter what might happen as long as Alex is her husband at the end of the day.  The trouble is that Alex is now frightened of the future and what his injuries might mean for the future of his career…and then there is the mothers. Ugh.

     Their mothers are planning an epic wedding that involves huge venues and unbelievably large guest list….all of this is making it very hard for Violet to not break out in hives!  Getting through these rough patches make Violet and Alex realize even more how much they want to share their lives and build their own family.

     Once again, Ms. Hunting has given us an amazing installment in what has become one of my favorite series to date!  You get to see Alex & Violet struggle but also to see them grow and become even closer while trying to navigate the bumps in the road of life.  And of course, there are some epically hilarious moments that will have you laughing out loud and embarrassing yourself in public!

      The only thing about this book that makes me sad and worried is the end.  SLIGHT SPOILER ALERT….. 


There was a bit of a glimpse-into-the-future/wrap-up at the end that was wonderful, beautiful, amazing, (insert other great words here) that makes me fear that the series is over.  *sniff*sniff* I floved the ending but I am a little sad that I might not get to hang out with this gang anymore.  I feel like all of these couples have become a part of my own circle of friends.

     All in all this is, again, an amazing series that I guarantee you that I will add to my list of Multiple Reads list. Thank you, Helena!

5/5 stars!
