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.
I ogle Bishop like he’s a chocolate triple layer fudge cake during period week.
Helena Hunting is one of my favorite authors and A Favor for a Favor may be one of favorite books of all time. I completely fell in love with this story and Stevie and Bishop from the very first page.
This is a slow burn, but Bishop and Stevie are worth the wait. There is so much banter in this story and you can’t help but laugh out loud. Stevie is new to Seattle and after getting a not so pleasant surprise form an ex on her brother she finds herself living in her brother, RJ’s, penthouse. Her new neighbor is a grump who likes to hang out in his pretty funny underwear. It quickly becomes a game between the two of them. Bishop has some not so nice opinions of his new neighbor, that is until he finds out who she is.
Stevie and Bishop of chemistry from the start. I loved their little morning game routine. These two are up there with one of my favorite Helena couples ever! I didn’t want their story to end because I couldn’t get enough of them. They are perfect for each other and once they decide to stop playing games and give in to their chemistry things get EXPLOSIVE.
A Favor for A Favor can be read as a complete standalone, but it is the second book in the All In series. If you want more of Stevie’s brother, RJ, then I HIGHLY RECOMMEND reading book 1, A Lie for a Lie.
Stevie and Bishop are one of my favorite book couples of 2020 and this is one of my top reads for 2020!
