From the New York Times bestselling author of Pucked and A Lie for a Lie, a new stand-alone romance about trading favors, battling wills, and winning love.
When I joined Seattle’s NHL expansion team, I thought it was the start of something great. But nothing ever goes the way you expect. Take my introduction to my new neighbor. She came rolling in on the hot mess express at midnight, making a racket while she tried to get into my team captain’s apartment. Did I mention that he’s married to a woman who definitely was not her?
Imagine my surprise when I end up with an injury that has me out of the game for weeks, and she’s the one to offer to help me. I should probably add that she’s not the captain’s mistress. She’s his sexy, pastel-haired younger sister.
So we come up with an arrangement: she rehabs me so that I can get back on the ice sooner, and she can add a professional athlete that isn’t her brother to her client list. Seems simple enough. As long as I can keep my hands to myself and my hormones in check.
A Favor for a Favor is the second novel in the All In standalone series. The sequel follows RJ’s (from A Lie for a Lie) sister, Stevie, and a new player, Bishop, on the new expansion NHL team in Seattle. Stevie and Bishop do not have the perfect meet cute, instead personalities clash making for an interesting dynamic between the two.
Stevie and Bishop have instant chemistry. Their banter is witty and hilarious. It’s the type of comedy that isn’t over the top or childish. If you didn’t enjoy the comedy in Pucked by Helena Hunting, you’ll certainly enjoy it here. Their tension is palpable as they try to outmatch and outwit each other.
Stevie is a spitfire main character and one of the reasons I enjoyed A Favor for a Favor so much. She’s not afraid to speak her mind and is not an inexperienced virgin. She’s brash yet likeable making her the perfect foil to Bishops’ broodiness.
Overall, A Favor for a Favor is a great sports romance that will make you laugh out loud and swoon all within the same chapter. I am very much looking forward to the next novel, A Secret for a Secret. Hunting can always be relied upon for a romance with characters with personality and tension that is so thick you could cut it with a knife.
***I received an ARC via Netgalley for an honest review.
