Plot overview: NHL hockey star Bishop injures himself and strikes a deal to rehab with Physical Therapist (and his neighbor...and his teammate’s sister) Stevie. Friendship and lots of sexy times ensue.
Bishop is officially being added to the “all-time greatest ever” book boyfriends list that I’m compiling. Here’s what I loved about him:
I will warn y’all—in the very beginning, you’ll think Bishop is a complete jerk. But just stick with it. He’s not REALLY a jerk. It’s pretty much a big misunderstanding (or series of them, really).
Stevie is pretty awesome, too. She’s been wronged by her ex, but she doesn’t let it defeat her or run her out of her job (where he also works). She holds her head high, stays strong, and never even CONSIDERS taking the jerk back. She’s a strong, competent woman and I appreciated the hell out of her spunk and sass.
As is typical of any Helena Hunting read, the sex scenes are of the melt-your-Kindle variety. And while I loved the last book in this series, A Lie for a Lie, I actually think I liked this one better. It can be read as a standalone, too. So if you haven’t read A Lie for Lie, you can dive right into A Favor for a Favor and not feel like you’re missing anything.
Long-story-short, I’m not sure why you’re still reading this review. Get out there and 1-click!!
