Publisher's Summary

Available in audio first, a sizzling new stand-alone by New York Times best-selling author Helena Hunting! 

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.

Saved the best for last!

I have anxiously waited for Darren and Charlene’s story since Pucked came out and it was so worth the wait! I admit that I was originally disappointed that it was coming out on Audible so much earlier than print and was going to wait it out until November. But it was Darren! There would be no way I would be able to wait that long knowing the story was out there so I broke my audiobook cherry... and I’m so glad I did!
This story is everything. It has the humour we crave from Helena and I found my self laughing out loud and then looking around to see if anyone was watching me. The sexy times were SMOKING!!!!!! And confirmed what I had a feeling would happen... Darren is by far my favourite Pucked man. The twists and turns were quite a surprise and I couldn’t predict the outcome or pause the story to do “real life” things because I just had to know what was going to happen. The feels! Oh the feels! This story combines all the fun of the Pucked world with the sensitivity of the Clipped Wings world.
Absolutely a 5 star story and I can not wait for November to read it again!!!!

5 "I'll never put a lid on you" stars

Darren and Charlene, the mystery on what has been going with them has been alluded to, hinted at, and teased at in almost each book up until this point. What is the nature of their relationship? What is up with the pearls? Why doesn't Charlene share details? Doritos mean, what? The answers are all addressed, and what you think, even as you start the book, is not what it is

What it is is a million times better, and while listening to this book, I laughed like a loon, I cried as my heart ached for both Darren and Charlene, singularly and together, and smiled with absolute happiness for them, and their friends, as everything came together, and lives fell into place for everyone. All of Charlene's and Darren's pieces fit so perfectly, everyone but them saw it, even when no-one completely understood what their pieces were, and that was a testament to how wonderful they are together

What a way to end the series

I have enjoyed every book in this series and I think this is the perfect way to finish the story. Saying that I am sad it’s over. Darren and Charlene’s story maybe my favourite one.

Worth The Wait

As a Pucked Series fan, I have wanted Darren’s story since the beginning. It was everything and I couldn’t be happier.

Darren and Charlene have been a mystery. I enjoyed getting to know the real deal behind their relationship, and their personal stories. Charlene is wonderful, but Darren. Oh sweet Darren. He is on the top of the list of ultimate book boyfriends.

The narration was amazing and kept me engaged. Do yourself a favor and listen to this story.

Cute and sexy but not much plot and...

too much introspective dialogue makes this about 2 hours too long for the limited storyline. The narration is great though duet narration would have made it even better. This is my first book of this series so I may go back and listen to the earlier books for something light and humorous if they are also in the Romance Package. There is always fast forward! The epilogue provides hints of the growing team family.

So funny

This whole series makes me laugh, I just love it. Stella Bloom is one of my favorite narrators so I enjoyed her parts. I liked the previous male narrator in the series, this gentleman over acts and it's unnatural.

Pleasantly Suprised

This story was nothing like I was expecting, but was so much more.

Everything about it was perfection. Darren and Charlene are both so broken, but in each other find a way to make each other whole. Darren was so suprising in how he cared for and took care of Charlene.

I have loved this entire series and could not have imagined a more perfect ending to it.

Better than I was anticipating...

I have loved the Pucked series from the beginning. Each new book has brought more information out about this fun tribe that mesh together to make a family. Thank you to Helena for your time and for sharing the voices in your head...xoxo

We waited for this???

Sadly, this book fell flat. What’s worst is it was read by a flat narrator. Stella was decent but the male narrator manages to become more monotone with the progression of the story. Charlene & Darren’s built up throughout the series was so good and laced with curiosity. I can honestly say their book was not at all what I had anticipated. This was a let down for the series.

Loved it!!

I've been waiting forever for Darren and Charlene's story and it didn't disappoint. Loved that it included all my favorite people. The narrators were amazing and definitely like that it had dual narrative. The only issue I have it that it's over. Can't wait to see what comes next.

I love Helena’s writing and this series has been amazing!!

I sooo cried during the epilogue! Partly because of the words and partly because it’s the end of this particular series!!

Words Fail Me

I loved this book. My first audible but with as much as I Love Helena Hunting and then Pucked series I could not wait for this one in print. I laughed and cried and laughed some more. Darren and Charlene are perfect.
