Masquerade ball rule #1: what happens at the ball doesn’t always stay at the ball.

A chance encounter with a masked stranger at a charity ball led to an incredible kiss and a night of hot sex. The kiss was my goal for that night, a baby step forward after my husband’s death a year ago. The hot sex? Not so much.
You know what else hadn’t been my goal?

    4 Stars!!! Stina has done it again!!! I think I say this with each of her books, but third ones a new favourite of mine!!! These two characters - Kiera and Logan - are just,... I loved them!

    There’s loads here with these two together and apart. And I can’t say much so I don’t give anything away, but,... yeah. Loved it SO MUCH!

    During this one my emotions were all over the place. There were swoony moments. There were moments that make your heart hurt a little. So many emotions all over the place.

    By the Bay series book six, and it did not disappoint. As with all the books in this series, we have hockey and strong women. I enjoyed Kiera’s independence, a recent widow, school teacher, and philanthropist at heart. Logan has known Kiera since college and was her former husband's roommate. The setup for their reconnection is perfect. Now, if they can manage to get past all the snowballing white lies, they might get their happily ever after. The charm and sass of Logan's ex-wife and daughter a ...more

    Just finished this wonderful second chance romances. Keira and Logan are wonderful and witty and incredible couple.
    A mixture of his ex wife and daughter is wonderful.
    Hearing about of couples we have gotten to know and love was wonderful.

    Truly a couple that was meant to be together. Had some heartbreaking moments but
    as usual Stina bring us our happy ending.

    Highly recommended. Can't wait to for Eli's book

    I greatly enjoyed this one! It’s about two people getting a second chance at love AND an accidental pregnancy. Did I mention Logan is also a single father, has a great relationship with his ex-wife and her hubby and he’s a NHL player???
    That’s a lot of goodness packed into one story.
    I should also mention she doesn’t know who the father of her baby is...
    That’s right. Kiera doesn’t know Logan is the father of her baby.
    Have I captured your attention now?
    One-click this one!

    I received an ARC of this book and it knocked my socks off! It was a book I had a hard time putting down (probably not the best book to try to read over the holidays).

    This story is a continuation of the short story from the Jingle Balls Ball about Kiera and Grayson. They have a one night stand with an unexpected outcome which is just the beginning! There are so many twists and turns on the way to Kiera’s happily ever after.

    A great second chance at love which I guarantee you won’t regret reading

Well written, funny, sexy and sweet another hit for Stina. Loved it!! ...more

    Liar, liar!
    Hilarious story of how Kiera and Logan get to their happily ever after.
    I had such a good time reading this book, it’s excellent entertainment with lots of depth and a healthy dose of life’s lesson learned.
    Once started I could not put this book down, I can warmly recommend it!

    You know when a book just adds one loaded moment after another, with tension building, and you can’t help drifting to imagine what’s going to happen in your head, then quickly shake yourself to pull yourself back, because you’re dying to know what actually happens.
    That’s this book. Oh. M. G! My heart was just racing through the whole thing. That’s 5 stars right there.
    The characters were 3 dimensional, not perfect but relatable and loveable. Kiera managed to dig a pretty big hole for herself, w

    I received an arc of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I first met Kiera and Logan in the anthology Jingle Bells, which helped raised money for testicular cancer awareness, and I could not wait to read their story. Now Kiera is pregnant and trying to figure out how her life is going to go. After being traded and finally in the same city as his daughter, Logan just wants to concentrate on his hockey career and daughter. The only problem is his daughter's teacher is Kiera ...more

    Kissing a stranger at the masked ball leads to so much more!

    I tried to describe Decidedly with Luck by Stina Lindenblatt to a friend and it made me laugh just talking about it because everything is so unexpected because it’s not a boy meets girl and they fall in love but a rollercoaster romance.

    Hockey player Logan Mathews had been in love with Keira since college because he was too shy to ask her out and his best friend asked her out first so when they connected at the masked ball and she didn’t
    Loss, a one night stand, strangers, long put away crushes, hockey, ex’s, crazy friends, and well a lie.

    Logan and Kiera met in college and shared feelings but were afraid to share. Life leads you on crazy adventures but now years later he’s living in San Francisco, she’s his daughters teacher and she’s pregnant. Their friendship reignites and things are interesting but when he learns who the father is, things change.

    Decidedly With Luck was a good story. Kiera and Logan were good friends in college. They both liked each other but were unaware of each other’s feelings. Logan introduced Kiera to his best friend and he didn’t waste anytime getting Kiera and eventually marrying her. And after they drifted apart. Now years later Kiera is a widow and attends a charity masquerade ball with her sister. Ready to take the first step in moving forward since her husbands death.

    This story is a continuation of a short story from the Jingle Balls Ball about Kiera and Grayson. They have a one night stand and things spiral out of control from there.

    There are so many twists and turns, including ex wives and hidden identities, along with one whopper of a misunderstanding that takes on a life of its own. But all these issues aside Kiera is able to find her HEA.

    I'm not going to lie, the way these two hooked up was a tad unbelievable yet it led to my first 5 star read of 2021. I loved every twist and turn to this 1) one-night stand with consequences story 2) secret baby and daddy (yep it's kind of a thing) 3) reunited friends who become lovers romance. I could not put this book down. I loved it!

    Once you suspend your disbelief in how the main characters get tangled up in white lies, this is a fun second chance at love, old friends to lovers romance with ice hockey thrown in!

    There's laugh out loud moments (with a few dohs as not many would have behaved like the main characters in most instances!!), sweet romance and heat.

    I received an ARC from the author and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    I read this book as an ARC. This was a sweet love story between two old friends. It was frustrating at times as the Heroine was dishonest. There were cringe worthy lies that I wasn’t sure how the author would be able to resolve but in the end there was a HEA for all involved. The relationship between to the two main characters was well developed despite all the lies and misunderstandings. Worth a read.
    Reading  In the  Red Room
    Kiera is a widowed teacher who has a mysterious one night stand. Logan is a hockey player in love with his former best friends wife. Can they rekindle a friendship and maybe have more than a friendship? These two have incredible chemistry and a strong friendships. This was a great quick read.

    IT was a cute story however there were plot lines that did not add up or did not make sense. As a grown woman she made choices that were immature.
