What if everything you thought you knew about Lance "Romance" Romero was wrong. Just an illusion, a distortion of the truth?
This book had all the feels & lovers of this series will not be disappointed. New readers will love it to & will want to go back to where it all began.
Lance's life is not as charmed nor as care free as it may seem. He holds his cards close to his chest & his demons even closer.
He showed his cards once with the wrong person & she took them & kept them for her own advantage & to use them to keep Lance isolated & believing that she was what he deserved.
Only a girl from his past becomes his now, his present & hopefully his future. She slowly shows him that the guilt he carries is not his burden to hold. She shines a light on his darkness to allow his light to shine.
Their story is not without it's roadblocks but it is definately worth the ride.
Highly recommend this book & hope that you love it as much as I did.
I haven't read any of the other books in this series, yet, so it took me a bit to find my feet but ooohhhhh it was worth it. Lance 'Romance' Romero is not who you think he is, he's way more fragile and broken than anyone knows. Except of course for the one woman who hurts him the most, his kind of ex, Tash. But when he is scheduled for a massage with Poppy O'Connor his perceptions of himself begin to change. Little does Lance know there's a good reason why he feels a sense of comfort with Poppy, if only he could remember...... I loved the journey these two take, nothing happens too quickly and there are plenty of issues to work through but that's what made it such a great read. I might just have to read the rest now!
It is always a great day when I get reunited with the lads and lasses from the Pucked series, but I was really, really wanting Lance's story.
And it was so much more than I could ever have expected.
Whilst it still has its funny and sexy and dirty times, Pucked Off is darker than the previous books. Lance is a tortured soul, a horrible childhood and years of felling like crap. I was surprised at how deep his demons ran, and what was behind the enforcer.
Poppy knows Lance from her childhood and now they are back in each others worlds ,but with what consequences.
And remember Tash from the earlier books? I really liked her before, but nope, her true colours have come out and don't want to give much away, but she is a bit of a psycho hose beast! And I just wanted to slap her with my kindle every time she turned up on the page.
Every page I turned I just needed to know more. I got frustrated at times with Lance's inability to let himself move forward, but at the same time I could understand.
Poppy is a strong, independent woman that I just adored from the get go.
We got lots of the other pucked people, and it was nice, as much as I freaking LOVE Violet's smutty mouth, to get a saner, deeper side of her at time. But we still got the crazy!
I really adored this addition to the Pucked series, it was sweet and sexy and adorable, and LanceRomance may now be my second favourite ranga (but no one will every beat my Prince Harry!)
