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.

Oh my... I have forgotten how much I enjoy this world, and Helena Hunting's writing! This book had everything... a broody male lead, a quick witted girl, slow building chemistry and a pretty entertaining storyline! I was hooked until that final page!

Stevie and Bishop's first meeting was amusing; she had just had the day from hell and while trying to get into her new, temporary apartment she was abused by her neighbour! Each time they crossed paths, the tension was still there, however the flirting increased and I knew that even though these two appeared to not like one another, it was only going to be a matter of time.

The banter between Bishop and Stevie made me laugh! They tried to get under each others skin constantly. When Bishop was injured and couldn't get into his apartment, I could see that things were about to change between them, even if it was professionally to begin with. The chemistry was off the charts, and boy did it sky rocket during the first real kiss!

It saddened me that Stevie felt that she lived in her brother's – RJ's – shadow and that it effected the way she lived. She tried hard to be out of the spotlight and pushed Bishop away due to his popularity too. RJ was very self centred and made everything about himself, and I could see why he clashed so much with Bishop as well. I truly loved being back in this world, and I believe Helena Hunting delivered their story perfectly!

A sweet one, but a little amusing too 😜

“I’m not doing it for you, Stevie. I’m doing it for me.”
“Why?” My stomach is full of fluttery things.
Instead of answering, he cups my cheek in his palm and drops his head until his mouth is only a breath away from mine. “Why?”
I nod once, and our lips almost brush with the movement.
“Because if anyone should be your boyfriend, it’s me, not that shit-for-brains ass clown.”
