Publication Date: October 28, 2021
Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy/Sports Romance
Author: Teagan Hunter
Puck Shy was totally different than I was expecting, it was better!! Yes, it’s a sports romance, but it also contains geeky flirting, a fun road trip, lots of classic horror movie reference banter (that is perfect for the upcoming holiday), and steamy moments that made my cheeks flame bright!
This was my first Teagan Hunter book and I will be coming back again after this pleasant surprise.
Collin Wright has had a run of bad luck. It’s been worse than bad luck, he’s been in the wrong place at the wrong time kind of bad luck, but when his car breaks down in the middle of literally nowhere, his luck either may have changed for the better when he almost gets hit flagging down the only driver he’s seen for miles, or maybe his bad luck is really about to kill him this time. He is willing to take his chances by getting in her car.
Harper isn’t in the habit of picking up strangers, seriously, what woman in her right mind is, but something about Collin says he’s not about to murder her. Hopefully. Their meet cute may not be typical, or normally safe, but it is full of great banter, that leads down the path of more.
More fantastically witty banter between Collin and Harper to begin with. These two would normally seem like oil and water, but somehow they fit together perfectly. Harper may just be the good luck charm to Collin’s run of bad luck, but more than that he brings her to life. Harper may have been just existing before running into Collin, but these two rejuvenate one another. That is love in a nutshell.
Wait…we are not supposed to say the L word out loud around these two, but seriously, this book is fun and sweet and I really enjoyed the escape.
Puck Shy was a pleasant surprise. I expected the sports aspect of it, but it also held a ton of heart and a lot of laughs. This book was a very enjoyable read. I can’t wait to return.
I’m having the definition of a bad year.
Game Six loss costing my team the Cup? Check.
Getting arrested and ruining my image? Check.
Almost getting run over after my car breaks down? Oh, look—a hat trick.
My contract is up with the Carolina Comets this year, and I need to get it together if I want to stay with the team.
I need relaxation, not a relationship.
But when I’m scrolling on a dating app and stumble across the pretty girl who almost ran me over, I know I can’t let her walk away this time.
Harper is funny, smart, and doesn’t care about hockey.
I’m not supposed to be focusing on anything other than my career, yet I can’t get Harper off my mind.
I know I shouldn’t fall for her…but I think I already have.
PUCK SHY is a standalone hockey romantic comedy. It’s good, low angst fun with some hot hockey players.
