***A Standalone novel in The Pucked Series***
I’m NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance”
I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.
Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.
I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.
At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.
I shouldn’t want her.
But I do.
I should leave her alone.
But I won’t.

“You’re all the good things I didn’t know I was missing.”
LANNCCCCEEEE!!! My god I fracking loved him! Seriously I just loved him and his character. He’s soo much more than what we have read in the previous books.
When I saw this book on my kindle I was very excited to start it… even more so after reading the first chapter of Get Inked.
Frankly after that first chapter and the blurb of the book I was not so sure to read his story because it felt comparatively darker than other books in the series, I thought. But I still read his and I am happy because it really a total page turner. You won’t be able to keep it down.
For those who doent know thw Pucked gang, let me introduce you. All the male characters are hockey players in NHL of Chicago team. This is the fifth book in the series. Can be read as standalone but for better character understanding read other books in the series as well.
Lance in previous books was shown as a manwhore but obviously, it’s not like that. His story is complicated and goes to dark part (but not so much). Now the book starts with Lance getting calls from Tash – if you don’t know Tash, you can read her in Pucked over, Pucked Under and Forever Pucked. Tash was a totally bitch it was like she was the bitch queen. So vile and crude who would use Lance’a secret against himself. He is already in self doubt when comes to relationship and she always tampers his mood. After meeting Tash he kind of had a fight in a bar and to stay physically fit he had to take massages but the team massager isn’t free so his trainer sent him to another one where he meets Poppy.
I’m a legend. I’m the one people whisper about, even though half of the rumors aren’t true. I’m the man women with no inhibitions want. And I fucking hate it.
Now she has known Lance from childhood. Not typically they were friends but they shared a kiss when Poppy was thirteen in a closet but obviously with Lance’s troubled past he doesn’t remember her. But her touch soothes him unlike other women who would have his skin crawl.
“I wanna deserve you. Why can’t I find a way to deserve you?”
I freaking loved ittt!! Though the other characters of prior book were not showed many times as this book solely focus on Lance emotions. They were so all portrayed so beautifully that by reading them I had tingling feeling in my nose!
Now I Am waiting for the Mr. Grey of the group, Darren’s story.
