Welcome to a new series where I’ll be introducing you to one of my (many) book boyfriends.
Introducing… Alex Waters from Pucked by Helena Hunting
Alex Waters is the quirky, yet confident, sweet, somewhat awkward hockey player featured in the first book of the Pucked series by Helena Hunting.
Why I Love Alex
Alex was so unlike the stereotypical manwhore Alpha Male you’d typically see in a sports romance. He’s talented and comfortable in his own skin, but he’s also extremely down to earth and just awkward enough to be adorable… especially when he falls in love.
And like any great book boyfriend, he loves fiercely.
But, the thing I think I love the most about Alex is his odd relationship with Violet and how he totally gets her despite her eccentricities.
Alex is aggressive and demanding on the ice, but in person he’s sweet and funny. He’s the perfect balance of different things while still being completely believable.
My favorite Alex Quotes
I sleep best when my head is resting on your delicate pillows of love.
I want to get to know you better. Because I want you to see for yourself I’m not the kind of guy you think I am.
I can’t wait to have my mouth on you again. I’m gonna eat you like I’m on death row and you’re my last goddamned meal.
I’m going to pretend you didn’t say any of that shit about Canada being an extension of the US, Violet. I know you don’t mean that.
