REVIEW ➞Kiss and Don’t Tell by Meghan Quinn


Five hockey players, a cabin in the woods . . . and little old me, Winnie Berlin.

Sounds like the start of a fantasy, right? But it’s not. It’s my reality.

It all started when I got lost in the middle of the Canadian Rockies. A wicked thunderstorm sent my car mud sliding into a ditch and for a girl whose survival skills involve finding the nearest Starbucks, I was in deep trouble.

Forced to abandon my car in search of help, I stumbled upon a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Soaking wet, irritated, and in desperate need of a hot shower, I knocked on the door for help only to be greeted by five boisterous, burly, and insanely attractive men.

Not just men.

Professional hockey players.

I hit the motherload of fantasies, right? Wrong.

Because as it turns out, one of them is my ex-boyfriend’s half-brother. And when I end up crashing in their spare bedroom for the night, things take a very unexpected turn.

I’m not sure any amount of survival skills can protect my heart from Vancouver Agitators star goalie, Pacey Lawes. But as long as we kiss and don’t tell, maybe everything will be okay . . .

The man you love should always be your champion, Win. Always encouraging. Never settle for less.


Winnie ends up lost and at a house full of five rather hunky hockey players….why doesn’t this happen in real life!? They all intrigue her, but one of them more so than the others. Pacey is drawn to Winnie the moment he sees her. There is something about her that is familiar to him, but he can’t put his finger on it.

There is a instant connection and plenty of chemistry between Winnie and Pacey. While on vacation it is easy to get lost in the bubble and have everything be perfect. Once the real world comes back into play there are some struggles and issues in what seemed like a strong relationship between Winnie and Pacey. Your heart is so full of joy and happiness and then it gets stomped on, but eventually everything will work itself out and it is easy to root for these two characters to find their happily ever after.

This story had me laughing out loud so many times. There is also some steam and plenty of swoony moments. Seriously, Pacey with the help of his teammates and friends really know how to woo a woman.

I ABSOLUTELY love every single secondary character in this story and I can’t wait for more of them. I can’t wait to get more about all of them and to get more of this series.

If you’re looking for a laugh out loud, hockey romance this is one to check out.
