A Favor For A Favor (All In #2) - Helena Hunting

This is my first book in this series as the previous one didn't have such raving reviews about it. Oh FYI, the blurb is sort of misguiding. I expected something from it and found something different (not in terms of content but the vibe). Our hero, Bishop, is a popular NHL player. He lives in a penthouse and has a rivalry with the heroine's sister. He gets injured during one of his games and has to undergo physiotherapy. Enter our heroine, Stevie (well she doesn't exactly enter here, they are introduced waaay before this point is reached in the book, but not gonna give away spoilers soo). She's a freshly graduated physiotherapist. Her brother is team captain in the NHL team. She hates the popularity or spotlight that comes with being a hotshot NHL players sibling. Our characters meet when Stevie moves into her brother's apartment after a bad breakup. She's had an exhausting day and has trouble with moving into her apartment. The disturbance causes our hero (he's living in the next apartment, so he's her neighbour) to come out and say a few choice words. The hero completely misunderstands her and forms a bitter opinion about her in his head. Aaaand with this starts our hate-love part of the story. They get to know each other slowly and a friendship develops. They have this lust for each other from the very beginning but keep it under wraps and maintain a friendly relationship until they eventually fall in love. I picked this up after a friend I follow gave it a glowing review. And I can understand why . I loved the guy (don't worry....he appears to be an asshole in the beginning but you'll see). My main problem was probably the girl. I didn't like her character and didn't think they made a good match. I definitely did not like her brother. I didn't feel their love. It was a little steamy which was fun but even that got boring as it went on. I hoped for more. I was really enjoying this book until it got a little boring and then I had to fast forward to reach the end to just finish it.

About the book:

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.
