by Helena Hunting
Book 4 in the Pucked series
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.
Forever Pucked is the fourth book in Pucked series by Helena Hunting. It once again is centered on the first couple in the Pucked series, Violet and Alex. Violet and Alex are living together, and are head over heels in love. When Alex proposed, Violet had no doubt she wanted to be his wife - and she still doesn't. She wants a small wedding. Family and a few close friends. But their mother's keep trying to plan a huge wedding. Just the mention of the wedding gives Violet hives. Can Alex and Violet take charge of their wedding, and make it down the aisle?
Sigh. After Randy and Lily's book, I was looking for more ... something. Violet and Alex were great in their book, but since then, they - sorry, Violet - has gotten more ridiculous. At first I quite enjoyed her, but she has become a one note character, and that's a bummer. And that one note is sex. Sex, and the MC. By book four, I certainly get that Alex has a monster cock, and Violet loves dressing it up. I don't need to read about it over and over and over again. And that is what this was. Repetitive monster cock love. With a side of wedding. If there was anything I liked about this book, it was when Alex --------spoiler-------> was injured <--------------------. It was one of the few moments where I felt Violet loved Alex for him, and not his penis.
Honestly, other than a few highlights, this book is skippable.

Summer: “And when it’s nice out, Miller loves to have sex outside.”
Sunny brushes the end of one of her thin braids across her lips. I have to bite my tongue, literally, to prevent myself from saying something about how yetis are notorious for the outdoor sexing. Violet: “What do you do, Alex Waters?”
Alex: “I love you.” Daisy: “Robbie! Be careful! You need those fingers,”
my mom admonishes. Skye whispers something in my mom’s ear, and the two of them giggle like teenage girls. Violet rolls her eyes and keeps chopping. She stabs a chunk with a toothpick and reaches across the island. Instead of taking it, I bite it off the toothpick.
Skye: “Looks like the Waters men are interested in getting some action later. You should get on that, too, Sidney.”
Skye winks at him.
Violet: “Mom, please.”
Skye takes a sip of her drink, testing it out.
Skye: “Too much orange juice.”
Violet: “Can we please have one family get-together without me needing therapy afterward?”
Skye: “I didn’t say anything.”
Skye: “Well, you know what they say about pineapple,”
Skye whispers. My mom cocks her head to the side and twirls her hair around her finger. Violet speaks before Skye can.
Violet: “Seriously. Please do not tell Daisy that pineapple makes jizz taste better. It doesn’t. That’s a lie some man made up so that women will willingly swallow a load of splooge.” Skye: “Since I already know the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in the package department, I can see why you would’ve claimed Robbie as soon as you could!”
Daisy: “It was a little scary the first time.”
Violet: “For the love of—”
The doorbell rings.
Violet: “I’ll get that!”
I yell, already on the move. Right about now I’d accept a stitchable laceration to get out of this dick discussion.
Charlene: “I’ll come with you!”
Charlene follows me down the hall to the front door.
Violet: “Thanks for encouraging that. My therapy bills are going to be through the roof after today.”
I elbow her in the side.
Charlene: “Those two are crazy.”
Violet: “Do you think we’ll be like that when we’re their age?”
Violet: “I sure as hell hope so.” Sunny opens the door. Lily’s out there now.
Sunny: “Where’s Charlene?”
Lily: “I have no idea. I lost her a few minutes ago. Your mom and Skye are in the pocket pussy aisle, so I figured this was the safest place to hang out.” Violet: “I want all the things with you, Alex. I want the tears and the laughter, but more laughter than tears. I want the downs so I can appreciate the ups even more. I will try to be the best version of me, so I deserve the best version of you for the rest of my life.”
