October 15th, 2019
October is hockey season and Helena Hunting has it on lock! The new All In Series introduces A Lie For A Lie , a second chance romance featuring Chicago’s hockey captain Rook (RJ) and Lainey, a professional student currently working on her thesis, i.e. booknerd.
First of all, I don’t read second chance romance. I run away from them. Mainly, because I don’t appreciate every other chapter reflecting on the past. My philosphy has been – just tell that story instead of rehashing past events for the present. It doesn’t make sense to me.
I have no idea how Helena Hunting has become my new favorite author but I should have known her second chance romance would make me a lover of the trope. Her second chance is told as a memory how RJ and Lainey meet and fell in love as the first part of the book. After RJ and Lainey separated, the story moves to the present day and remains a current day story. If I am going to read second chance romances, this style IS my preference.
RJ and Lainey have the perfect meet cute on a plane bound to Alaska. Check Check for my perfect reading pleasure. They share a once in a lifetime life alteratering love affair secluded from their normal lives in Alaska and lost contact with each.
Fourteen months later they are accidently reunited. Before long, Lainey becomes torn descovering RJ’s true identity and keeping a dark secret of her own. Hunting does an exceptional job creating the push and pull. The savvy trope is romantic and complete with enough spicy hot scenes to keep a few ice chips nearby. I may have not have read all of her Puck Series, but this book is definitally packed with sexual heat. She has a great ear for dialogue during sex to capture your attention and not let up. Mile High Kink Book Club highly recommends A Lie For A Lie. Its a great book and fast read. You will love it from the safety cuddles to the end. Stay tuned for book 2: A Favor For A Favor
