A Favor for a Favor, all-new enemies-to-lovers standalone sports romance from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting, is available now!
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.
Hunting has quite the knack of writing a male character who has the perfect amount of “rough around the edges” but a great heart. Bishop comes across as a cantankerous brute, but what I found to be most amazing is that despite him being crusty, his moral compass doesn’t waver in the slightest. Talk about a diamond in the rough. So of course that sets up the perfect antagonist situation with the kin of the one person he can’t stand…the team captain. And as cranky as Bishop can be, he’s more than met his match in Stevie. She’s smart, motivated, and a really good physical therapist. and she won’t take his crap. Can you smell where this is going?
It’s a great story that reminds us that we really can’t judge a book by its cover and sometimes we love calls the shots, even if we’re not ready to get in the game. A really fun observation…the main guys in the book are all named after chess pieces: Rook, Bishop, King. I guess they are all pawns in the game of love.
You can’t go wrong with a Helena Hunting novel. She does a great job in her worldbuilding and writing a follow-up in the series!
