From the highly loved Pucked series comes a new generation of hockey players to fall in love with. A Lie For A Lie is everything wonderful that Helena Hunting creates with her writing!!

We meet Rook Bowman, the captain now of the Chicago hockey team, for those of you familiar with the Pucked series, yes we have moved ahead a few years, but I assure this is a complete standalone. So while Alex has retired and most of the beloved players have families that you will meet, catch up with, and laugh right along with, you do not have to have read any of the prior books in order to enjoy this story.

We really begin the story of Rook, or RJ as we get to know him throughout the story, and Lainey in Alaska. Lainey is headed there to finish her third master’s degree, she’s a total brainiac and not into sports whatsoever. RJ is headed there on his yearly fishing trip away from the media, paparazzi, puck bunnies, and most of civilization. He finds Lainey freshing that she doesn’t know a thing about him so he leaves out the teeny tiny fact that he works for the NHL. It’s not really a lie, but more of an omission, and blatant steer of conversation when she asks what he does for work, but aside from that….he can’t help but be enamoured by her and their chemistry is off the charts. When he has to suddenly leave, he hates the fact he never hears from her again. Could he have misread the signs? When destiny places her in his path once more he knows he can’t lose her again, but he’s floored to discover she may have been keeping an omission of her own.

Lainey is away from pretty much everyone she knows for the first time in her life and the gorgeous man who has graciously helped her more times than really should be necessary, well she can’t seem to want to stay away when he offers to let her stay in his luxurious cabin vs. her rodent infested one. For six weeks they spend pretty much every moment together, until it comes to a heartbreaking end. With no way to contact one another once they leave their bubble of bliss they completely lose touch. Thankfully fate has another idea in mind. When Lainey takes a job in Chicago she runs into RJ again, she just didn’t realize he was a hockey player named Rook.

Can they both forgive and forget their past mistakes? Only time, healing, and a lot of trust will bring them back to where they were in Alaska, but the big question is, do they both want the same thing now that so much time has passed.

This new series is going to rock your world and give you all the feels…I’m serious….ALL THE FEELS!!! The direction that Helena is taking everything is absolutely amazing. Lainey and RJ are incredible together and rank pretty high up in standings to my favorite hockey couple. I can hardly wait for more stories to arrive in this new series!! The ride is going to be fantastic!!

Review – The Truth About Us by R.C. Stephens

45487137. sy475

The Truth About Us (Standalone)
by R.C. Stephens (Author)

This review is from: July 24, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

A second chance, new adult, little sister/brother-best friend love story. This is one love story with so many twists and turns showing that love isn’t a straight line. Can you really say you’d make the same choices again at twenty that you’d make at thirty? People change regardless of whom they are with or maybe because of whom they are with. The Truth Of Us is an amazing book that delves into the choices we make, the family we have, and the family we surround ourselves with by choice.

R. C. Stephens opens the story with two teens, Griff and JoJo, in the midst of a mad, passionate crush teetering upon love. After a year and a half of dancing around each other with stolen kisses and touches JoJo gives Griff her heart and her virginity and then they promise each other a future together, right after Griff vanishes from her life completely ghosting her.

Ten years go by and JoJo has moved on, eventually marrying (although also losing her spouse too) when her mother calls to announce that her step-father has died and should return home. JoJo hasn’t returned home in years, the memories have been too painful, but since Griff hasn’t shown his face even once in a decade she doesn’t give him another thought that is until she sees him at the same airport.

A lot of time has past and Griff has burned a lot of bridges with JoJo, but the moment he sees her across the airport every reason he had for staying away vanishes from his brain. He believes in destiny and wants another chance with her. He wants everything and he won’t give up until she is in his arms again. He first needs to explain what happened ten years ago, but then convince her that there is a reason why they have this second chance.

JoJo has a lot of baggage and half of it is Griff’s to carry, the rest is her dead spouses. She never planned to fall in love again, but the problem is she never fell out of love with Griff. Will things be different this time? There are so many roadblocks, so much standing between the two of them can they really pick up where they left off?

Bec Darden was a high-powered attorney who had spent her entire adult life building a fearsome reputation both in the courtroom and the boardroom.

But once upon a time, she was also a naïve and romantic—aka idiotic—soul who’d married her college sweetheart on a whim just before graduating. She and Luke were young and in love and—

No surprise, her marriage had been short-lived.

Explosive. Miserable. And incredibly, incredibly short-lived.

But now Luke Pearson was back in her life and with the worst possible news. Her marriage, the one she’d almost immediately regretted, and the subsequent divorce she’d paid through the teeth for by working insane hours and basically not sleeping for several years hadn’t happened.

As in she was still freaking married.

Luke had been sexy in high school, gorgeous in college, but he was even hotter as a grown man and his reappearance in her life hadn’t done anything to dampen the attraction she felt for him.

But Bec had already learned that sex wasn’t everything. One broken heart was enough, and she wasn’t in the market to give Luke another chance at shattering her all over again. He needed to sign the divorce papers she drafted and leave her to her life.

Except . . . what did they say about best laid plans?

Because Luke wouldn’t sign.

About the Author:

Aside from writing romance, Elise’s passions are chocolate, Star Wars, and hockey (the order depending on the day and how well her team — the Sharks! — are playing). She and her husband also play as much hockey as they can squeeze into their schedules, so much so that their typical date night is spent on the ice. Elise is the mom to two exuberant boys and is thoroughly addicted to Dancing With the Stars.

Review – Bad Divorce by Elise Faber

Bad Divorce; Billionaire’s Club #5 (Series)
by Elise Faber (Author)

This review is from: July 2, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

A fun, no drama, second-chance contemporary romance that will make you feel all swoony. I really enjoy Elise Faber’s writing and while this was the first book I read in this particular series, I had no trouble jumping into the fifth book in it, so it can be read as a complete standalone.

Bad Divorce was such a delightful, easy read, once I picked it up I didn’t set it back down again until I was finished. Bec and Luke were destined to be together, especially since their divorce paperwork burned up leaving them unknowingly married for a decade. Once Luke becomes aware of the error, he sees it as a sign and seeks out Bec ready to win back the woman that he never should have let go in the first place.

I love the comradery of all the girls that Bec has with her girlfriends, in this day and age, women need that band of sisterhood and I love when we show positive support of each other. On another positive note, I love how the characters talk about their growth over the decade they were apart. Talking about where they made mistakes and learning from them is a communication breakdown we lack in everyday life, so I LOVED reading this so much.

Great book! Easy read! Fun and flirty!
