Pucked under + Area 51
both by Helena Hunting
both part of the Pucked series
hot and hilarious contemporary sports romance
this book is right now available on iBooks (where I bought it)
but will also be available on other sites later this year
in the story we revisit Randy and Lily
it is set after "Forever Pucked"
how has their relationship changed over the last months?
are they still insatiable?
and how will they deal with some family complications?
this story fits perfectly to the rest of the series
the dialogues are over the top sexy and dirty
I love that, but not everyone might feel the same
I loved learning more about Randy and Lily
it was nice to see how they both and their relationship have grown stronger
and of course I also loved reconnecting with all of the other characters
I'm already excited for the next book in the series
I need the stories of Charlene + Darren and Lance + Tash (?).
is a free ebook (right now)
in it you can find some deleted scenes that never made it into the books
it's short and full of craziness
it's at times over the top hilarious
it's everything I wanted
if you are interested in the Pucked series but are unsure if the humour would work for you
then get this free ebook and read it
if it makes you laugh out loud and constantly smile
then the other books in the series should be perfect for you
after reading these two books
I reread "Pucked over"
which I struggled with when I read it the first time
but now it worked for me perfectly
I will tell you more about that soon.
Rarely is a sequel better then it's original. But then again it's pretty obvious Abercrombie knows how to step things up a notch. The characters i liked before... I love them now. Characters I disliked... well I like them a little better. Characters I overlooked... starting to pick up some sinister vibes. There's a lot of development in this one, especially with a certain selfish prick named Jezal Dan Luthar slowly tugging at the old heart strings. I admit it. I ended up feeling sorry for him. God! Who am I kidding? I ended up feeling sorry for everyone!
I loved this. For the second installment, despite the heavy topic and the pain and the drama that ensued, this book was as close to perfection for me as possible. Loved how their relationship grew, loved how they weren't perfect but worked through their struggles, loved how they found common ground and compromise. Loved the supporting characters, especially Erin and Summer, and adored the kids.
Fusion - the title itself hints at what's to come inside the book - is the story of Hugo and Kevin melding their lives together, as best as they can. It's the story of crafting a family of your own, against conventions and against the odds. It's the story of coming to terms with pain and loss, and finding ways to cope and communicate. It's the story of finding friendship in unexpected places, and giving from your heart. It's the story of two men who've loved each other for a very long time and who have to fight to be together and stay together. It's the story of one very strong woman who recognizes love when she sees it and has the inner strength to foster it, support it and celebrate it.
In short, it's a story about love and family and the fusion of their lives.
Wow. This was superb, with realistic characters that were fully fleshed out, and a profound message that permeated the book from pretty much start to finish.
“Because life is not a fairy tale” is the Brothers Grime slogan. Yes, this novel delivers a romance and a story that is as close to a fairy tale as possible, while still firmly planted in realistic settings.
Eddie Vasquez, uncle, brother, son, has been hiding this dyslexia for nearly all his life. He knows his limitations, works around them with what technology offers, but hates the fact that he struggles to read. Oh, and he's also head over heels in lust, possibly love, with his niece Lucy's teacher, B. Andrew Daley.
I knew I was in for a treat when the book started out with Eddie preening in front of the mirror to make sure he looks his very best when dropping off Lucy at school, because Mr. Daley (he who hands out Teacher's Pet pencils to his favorite pupils) might be there.
