A FAVOR FOR A FAVOR                       HELENA HUNTING

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.

     This is the second book in the series.  I have to say Helena didn’t disappoint.  The characters were just as entertaining and fast-paced funny as in book one.  You get to catch up with some of the characters from the last book which is nice.
     Like Violet, she is still as off the cuff as ever.  That’s what makes her Violet.  This book, however, has to do with Rook’s sister Stevie who we meet in the first book which was centered around her big brother RJ and his now-wife, Laney.
     Stevie has now gotten her masters in physiotherapy with a specialization in sports rehab.  Top in her class which landed her the primo job right in the same town, Seattle as RJ and his family.  She even got her ex a job there.  Yup! Her ex. She now has to work with the sleazeball.
     You see she has been steel in California and arrived at their new place in Seattle two days early. Joey was on the new sofa RJ bought them boinking someone other than her.  On Stevie’s birthday no less.  Needless to say, she calls RJ who gave her the penthouse to he had per his contract for a year which sat empty.  They had bought a house.
     By the time she gets there, it is midnight.  The one piece of luggage she did get was thrashed so getting it to the door is not easy or quiet.  Not to mention the key code is not working.  When from behind her a booming voice comes “What the hell’s going on?”
     She explains but Bishop, Mr. Joyful Boxer Man is more annoyed.  This could be intimidating if she wasn’t so tired, overwhelmed, and now also annoyed.  Then, Mr. Joyful starts insulting her but she’s so tired she is missing it.  Because at the moment she’s working on embarrassment.
     But when she does, she can give as good as she gets.  So, they part with insults flying.  As things are tense for sure they are also, days that are followed with underwear shows that become sexually charged.  Very funny.
     See how to single, fearful, grumpy people can turn their lonely lives into HEA.
