Confession #1: I used to be a puck bunny, but after a hockey player broke my heart, I gave up all things hockey. Now I’m just focused on finding a way to pass my math class so I can graduate college.
Confession #2: Ryder “Ox” Maddox’s deep, sexy voice sends fuzzy tingles through my entire body, and I’m powerless to stop it. Which is a big problem since the hot, surprisingly funny hockey player is my new math tutor.
Confession #3: I can’t stop thinking about how ripped Ryder is from all his hockey training, and how fun it’d be to cross lines with him.
Confession #4: I kissed a hockey player and I liked it.
Confession #5: If I’m not careful, I might relapse and fall for Ryder, and then I’ll be totally pucked.

A few moths ago I read Crazy Pucking Love but I had a lot of problems with that and didn’t like it that much. For some reason I still requested Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny when I saw it was available and I have to tell you, good thing I requested it because I LOVED this book.
First of all, I absolutely adored the main characters in this book. I didn’t know if I would like them or not, since that was my main problem in the previous book in this series, but I ended up loving Lindsey and Ryder. They were amazing. Lindsey was a great girl. She was strong and knew what she wanted from her life but she still had her fears. I loved how much she grew in the book. Ryder was just the best. I loved him. He was a great guy and he really tried to help Lindsey with her fears. He did mess up a few times and I wasn’t happy with him for a bit but in the end I loved him. I also really liked his story because while it looked like he had a perfect life he still had his issues. Also, these two together were amazing. One thing I really loved about their relationship is that they started out as friends (even if they both wanted more). It was great to see how Ryder respected Lindsey’s boundaries and choices. I also really liked that they talked about things. You know how in some books the main characters barely talk? Most of the times I don’t like that at all so seeing these two interact was the best thing ever. It was also great to see how much they helped each other. It was also great that they had an amazing chemistry XD. I also liked the plot. It was kind of predictable and at one point I predicted their main conflict.
I also really enjoyed the writing. This is my second Cindi Madsen book so I don’t know her style that well yet but I had a few problems even with the writing in the previous book I read. This one was way better. I loved the dual POV and how Lindsey and Ryder had very distinct voices. I also really enjoy that this was a fast paced book (unlike the previous one) and that flew nicely. This was just way better than the previous one and it makes me want to read the other books in the series.
Overall, was really good. This book ended up being a huge surprise to me and I wasn’t expecting to love it so much. If you love new adult romances you need to give this one a shot without any doubt.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If you haven’t read it would you read it?
