A gritty romance filled with lustful banter between two characters that fight their attraction, but slowly open their hearts for more...

Okay, okay... I mean like HELLO?! Can Helena Hunting stop it with the perfection that is her writing? Officially my first favorite book of 2020 and I am not regretting anything... I mean, why would I? Helena never seems to disappoint you at all when it comes down to characters that seriously have the best of the best in chemistry. My gosh, nothing can go wro

I need you to stop touching me!” It’s stupid because I’m still holding on to her, not the other way around.
“Why are you yelling at me?” she shouts back.
“Because you’re half-undressed in my tub,and I’m a guy, and apparently my dick is a fucking sadist. It honestly feels like my balls are on fire right now. A semi has literally never been this painful.” “Well, close your damn eyes and think about dead things.”

For so many reasons we probably shouldn't fit together, but we do.
I am so happy I continued on with this series! After not loving the first book (it had my least favorite troupe :/, I was a bit anxious to try this one. I love Helena Hunting’s writing and humor, so I thought I’d give it a go and it paid off big time! I absolutely loved this. Stevie and Bishop were the best and their romance was so much fun!

This guy takes the jerk cake with his asinine accusations. Such an epic waste of hotness.

Stevie is the baby sister of Rook Bowman. Bishop is RJ’s teammate, arch-nemesis, and neighbor. Their first encounter is far from sweet and romantic. They spend the first couple of weeks as neighbors trying to antagonize each other. When Bowman suffers a painful injury during an exhibition game, it’s Stevie that comes to his rescue.

Chapter One



As far as bad days go, this is one of the worst I’ve had in a very long time. I can get over the four-hour flight delay from LA to Seattle and sitting beside a man who smelled like old cheese and three-day-old underwear on the plane. But add in one of my suitcases taking a detour to Alaska—or maybe it’s Nunavut; who the hell knows?—and the fact that my remaining suitcase now has a broken handle and is missing a wheel, and this day just keeps getti

Bishop Winslow is an NHL player for the brand new expansion team in Seattle. He’s getting used to a new team, and settling into a new routine. He needs his sleep, so he’s not too thrilled when a hot mess of a woman is making all kinds of noise at midnight trying to get into his team captain’s penthouse apartment. He automatically thinks the worst of her. He later learns his new pink haired neighbor is his teammate’s little sister, but not before he m

Overall Opinion: This was better than I expected! I really loved the slow progression into feelings and even bed for these two! I appreciated that they talked about the hard stuff when they were developing feelings to help me connect with the characters at a deeper level. I enjoyed their banter and how they went from instant dislike to much, much more. My biggest gripe is the end. It didn't give me nearly enough and was too close to the conflict being resolved for me to call it a HEA. Ov

A little slow and boring in places.

I liked the hero tho.

The heroine was.. ok, but the whole drama about how being the sister of a famous hockey player ruined her life.. was annoying to say the least. People have real issues you know?

I liked the first book better, and I’m looking forward to the next one because I liked what I’ve seen of King’s character so far.

I'm listening to the audiobook for this book.


I have to say that I'm a little obsessed with these audiobooks 😂😂😂.

I was with these books on my TBR like forever, and after a few really busy days, I've started this series.

I'm glad that I've listened in order, because if I have read this book first, I would hate RJ and would never read his book. 😂😂😂

But about Stevie and Bishop...

This. This book is why I love Helena’s writing. It is comical romantic and filled with unique and interesting characters. I truly enjoyed every character and moment between Stevie and Bishop.

Stevie is a heroine who is totally relatable. The reader understands how hard it would be to live in the shadow of your famous brother and to always question people’s motives. I enjoyed her temperament and her choices, and I loved her as an indivi

At this point I think I'm the problem when it comes to MF books...

My theory after reading this is: I can't connect with this women!! I just can't, they are physically perfect and I know is hypocrite of me to say when in MM I don't bat an eye at this, (even though I do love a normal MC btw), but I really don't. This girl was athletic, she liked to do exercises people!!! The only way I enjoy walking is when I'm shopping!! She was also really plain, apart from that fact I can't point another aspect

“And how does Bishop look at me?”
“Like he wants to hold your hand.” She pauses, her smile widening at my eye roll. “And shove it down the front of his pants.”

Enjoyable slow burn hockey romance from Helena Hunting. Stevie is RJ’s (hero from A Lie for a Lie) little sister, but she doesn’t want to be known as that. Bishop is RJ’s teammate, but he also doesn’t want to be known as that. All jokes aside this one starts with a misunderstanding, some barely dressed morning strut off, and a bruised cr

I think I might have to give up on this series. I thought that A Lie for a Lie was just okay, but this was just boring. With the synopsis giving up a super funny meet cute, I seriously thought I would enjoy this. I never cared for either one of our main characters. They felt so cookie cutter and had nothing alluring about them.

My two biggest issues were RJ from book one and how the blame was shifted to Bishop. While I didn’t love RJ from A Lie for a Lie, I thought he was okay. In this book, I R

When it comes to hockey-themed romances, Helena Hunting is undoubtedly my absolute favorite author and having such great adoration for the Pucked couples, I wasn't sure the All In series could measure up. So thrilled that I was incredibly wrong. After devouring A Lie for A Lie, I was excited to jump into her upcoming release.

WOWZA! Helena Hunting has done it again. There is nothing I love more than a moody, broody, growly alpha and Bishop was all of that to a T! He was absolute perfection. Brusque on the outside but a big fluffy teddy bear on the inside. I loved his connection with Stevie. She was a girl after my own heart — sassy and sexy. Together they were the perfect combination! 

I was so excited to read Stevie's book because I loved RJ in A Lie For A Lie and was so intrigued about reading his sister's book. Dow

I absolutely adore the PUCKED series by Helena Hunting and these spin-off books are seriously giving me life. A FAVOR FOR A FAVOR is Bishop and Stevie story and it is FREAKING HILARIOUS. The hubs kept asking me what I was laughing at, but when I tried to explain he just looked at me like I was losing my damn mind. Helena really has such a special gift, and I can’t get enough of her words; her stories and characters never fail to make me smile. I really hope there’s going to be more because I’m n ...more

A Favor for a Favor (All In Book #2) by Helena Hunting is a contemporary romance that will have you laughing out loud and/or teary eyed more times than you can count throughout this fun and entertaining read. This is the second book in the “All In” series featuring alpha professional hockey jocks from Seattle’s new expansion NHL team, but it is easily read as a standalone romance.

A FAVOR FOR A FAVOR is book two in All in series, a hockey romance that can be read as standalone.

In this installment, we follow heroine Stevie, who we know from book one as the sister of a leading male character, and Bishop a hockey player who is playing with heroine's brother in the NHL team.
It is a slow burn romance, where these two are friends firsts after clearing mistaken identity from the beginning of this book. AfterBishop gets injured Stevie offers to help him as she is a physiotherap

She is left without a place to stay after an incident, and luckily her brother RJ has an empty penthouse where she can reside for as long as she wants.

This is second in a series and there's enough overlap I recommend reading in order. You don't have to, though, because the overlap isn't important to this story.

The plot of this one was a whole lot more straightforward than the last. That's not positive or negative, just a thing that makes it a much more typical hockey romance. Bishop and Stevie get off on the wrong foot because he's a giant jerk. He lets himself be king jerk because he thinks she's his team captain's side piece. Which says a lo

Unless they’re all brain-dead idiots and they duct-tape your mouth shut while they’re riding you.” She tilts her head, as if considering that, and nods once. “That has to be it. I can see how that might be doable.”

“What the hell are you talking about?” And did she just fantasize about riding me with my mouth duct-taped shut? Why is that hot?”
