Book Review: A Favor for a Favor by Helena Hunting


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.


✨ I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review 

After the disappointment of A Lie for a Lie, this book had a lot to live up to (well in my eyes anyway) and I’m so excited to say that absolutely loved this story!

Lainey moves into her brother’s (RJ) apartment after coming home and finding her boyfriend balls deep in other women. Rook is the moody neighbor next door who happens to play on the same team as RJ and ends up with a nasty injury just as the hockey season is starting. So they come to an agreement that Lainey can rehab Rook so that he can get back on the ice sooner and she can add the experience of working on an NHL athlete to her resume.

Rook and Lainey had great chemistry and I liked their banter a lot. The story went at a nice pace, with the relationship between the main characters developing a good rate. I enjoyed the thrill of all the sneaking around, it produced some very funny moment.

Overall I would definitely recommend this book.

My Rating 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟
