Where do we begin…Darren and Charlene have been years worth of waiting. The mystery between these to has eluded readers forever and now it all comes to light. Darren is a very private man; he keeps his affairs under lock and key. A date with Darren means an NDA and that includes to dishing details to your besties. #RoughLife But Charlene challenges him, she dares him to date her without the NDA if he wants her so bad. And there’s something so elusive about Charlene that Darren finds himself agreeing to her terms. But they still keep everything behind closed doors…until one accident early trip home with the guys exposes it all.
Charlene…is an interesting character. She’s quirky and confident but when it comes to being adventurous with Darren, she gives up total control, even though she may not want to take things as far as he does. With Pucked Love readers get an inside look as to why. Growing up in a commune *cough*cult*cough* and then escaping with her mother turning to the Dominatrix lifestyle will throw any preteen girl for a loop. Charlene went to zero exposure to 100% tell-alls. Darren interestingly is the exact opposite; he went from loving and open to caretakers that showed no emotion or tenderness. These two a quite literally perfectly matched. Darren’s ability to read Charlene’s fears and curiosities paired with Charlene’s challenge to Darren expressing his emotions makes from some entertaining reading.
As their secrets come to light to the Pucked group, Darren learns more about why Charlene is so determined to win him over. And as CHarlene’s past comes crashing into her future, she has to decide just how many boundaries she’s willing to cross to win Darren. This isn’t your typical romance of boy meets girl, they fall in love and HEA. No, this is two people who love each other so much but have no concept of what that means and now their journey is internally and externally discovering that truth. They’re already in love, they just need to realize. Prepare to cry and hope for their HEA, laugh at the gang’s hysterics (mostly Violet, let’s be real here), and gird your loins for some jaw-dropping bombshells that will solidify this series more than you ever could’ve hoped for. A tremendous ending to a fantastic and fan-loved series. Sad to see them leave but can’t wait to see what’s in store for Helena!!
Pucked Love, the final sexy and emotional standalone in the NYT bestselling Pucked Series from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting, is available NOW!
As an NHL player, relationships haven’t been my thing. Shrouded in secrecy and speculation, they never last very long. But then that’s what happens when you require an NDA before the first date.
Until Charlene. She’s like a firefly. She’s elusive, and if you catch her she’ll burn bright, but keeping her trapped dulls her fire and dims her beauty.
I caught her. And as much as I might want to keep her, I’ll never put the lid on her jar. Not at the risk of losing her. So I’ve let her set the rules in our relationship.
But as long hidden secrets expose us both, I discover exactly how fragile Charlene is, and how much I need her.
We’re all broken. We’re all messed up. Some more than others. Me more than most.

You’re turning twenty-six. It’s your champagne birthday, so we need to do something fun.” Violet bounces, making her boobs shake and my mimosa slosh perilously. “It should be themed! We can all wear leather chaps!”
“Could you be any more cliché?” I roll my eyes. “Just to be clear, Darren doesn’t own chaps.”
“Just a ball gag and a mask with no eye holes, according to Alex.”
And we’re back to my sex life. I knew I was getting off so easy.
I wonder if Darren is catching this kind of heat today. I seriously doubt it’s worse than what I’m getting since I don’t think his friends are likely to push his buttons, but I’ll have to ask when I speak to him next. I’m not sure when that will be, either. The message I sent about Gertrude was pretty straightforward and doesn’t necessarily require a response. Maybe I should’ve worded it differently.
Sunny raises her hand, like we’re all still in middle school and she’s waiting her turn to speak. “Wouldn’t a mask with no eyeholes be dangerous? You wouldn’t be able to see where you’re going.” Her eyes widen, and she looks around the room. “And what’s a ball gag?”
I honestly love that Sunny has grown up in this highly overinformed society and still manages to be innocent.
“Yeah, Char, wouldn’t a mask with no eyeholes be dangerous?” Violet props her fist on her chin and smiles. “And please, do explain what a ball gag is.”
“I’m not sure you really want the answer to that, Sunny.” Poppy gives me a look I can’t quite decipher.
Sunny twirls her hair around her finger. “Why not?”
“Where’s the harm in a little bondage-sex education? It’s not like Miller’s ever going to go out and buy either item for her. First of all, Alex would murder him, and secondly, I don’t think that’s Miller’s thing.”
Sunny’s face lights up, and she does jazz hands. “Oh! I think I know what Miller’s thing is!”
Lily grins. “Eating your cookie?”
“He really likes to do that, a lot. When my belly gets too big I’ll have to watch from the mirror.” She gets a faraway look in her eyes. “But he has another thing! Kind of like how you and Randy are always getting it on in bathrooms, except I think it’s a bit more sanitary.”
“And it doesn’t cause thousands of dollars of damage,” Violet adds.
Lily throws her hands up in the air. “That sink was already falling off the wall. It’s not my fault it broke!”
“That was one expensive orgasm,” I say.
“And Randy says it was worth every penny.” Lily’s smile is devious as she bites her knuckle, then turns to Sunny. “Anyway, back to Miller’s thing.”
Sunny wiggles around excitedly in her chair. “So Miller paints my toenails for me.”
“Miller’s thing is painting your toenails?”
“Yes. Well, no. I think he likes my toes.” Her fingers go to her lips, and she looks around the room, her cheeks flushing.
“Say what now?” Violet asks.
”Sometimes he kisses them.” She covers her mouth with her palm and says something unintelligible.
Violet sits forward in her chair. “Hold on a second, does Buck have a foot fetish?”
“Um, I don’t know.” Sunny looks worried now. “Is that weird? Is it, like, mask with no eyeholes kind of weird?”
