Genre: Contemporary Romance/New Adult
His name was Ozzie.
He was the college hockey star every girl wanted a piece of and who every guy wanted to be.
But I didn’t know he existed. Not until the editor of the school paper agreed to give me a position in exchange for writing an article about him and his private life. I want the position. More than anything. It’s been part of my plan for as long as I can remember. But associating with jocks isn’t something I’m comfortable with given how unpopular and awkward I was in high school. I can’t let that stand in my way, though. I’m too stubborn for that.
I devise a plan to meet him and it works better than I thought it would. I don’t tell him what I’m up to, and by the time I start to realize what all the fuss is about, it’s too late. My lie threatens to expose his darkest secrets and also break my heart.
Tara's 5 star Review
Swoon! Hot hockey player and the girl nobody saw in high school?? Sounds like a perfect read. (This Canadian girl might be biased, but the setting is pretty amazing as well).
"I close my eyes, enjoy it, almost forgetting what I asked him. I drift away to a world where nothing but right now exists. There is no article. I’m not going to betray him or his confidence. In this moment, I understand how girls fall."
All her life Charlie was that girl nobody saw. But when the did see her, it was to make her life miserable. Now being in a new school, taking care of herself, she still sees that loner girl in the mirror until she meets Ozzy. Needing to break a huge story on the mystery hockey star Ozzy, Charlie soon discovers that everyone has a past that has tainted them, and she must decide if her future goals are worth destroying someone's dreams. Ozzy soon learns that sometimes in life it's ok to open up, but can he trust Charlie?
"These feelings are so new I’m unsure of what I’m supposed to do next. I’m not used to feeling so much for someone so I’m unable to differentiate want from need. Because right now I need him."
This book was sooo good. Pucker Up is filled with so much truth, romance, and hot steamy connections. Sara's writing is strong, and she's not afraid to tackle the real issues in society today. I definitely want more from Sara!!
"I don’t have what it takes. I don’t want that life if it means not being able to look at myself in the mirror. I’m not sure if anything is worth that."
