Reasons I hate this book?
#1. It is disgusting. There is a multi page conversation about urination. There is a scene that is supposed to be funny but isn't about a dolphin penis and a kid comparing the size of it to his dad's dick. There is vomiting and a vomit bag full of vomit that are mentioned multiple times from multiple perspectives. That is all by page 20.
There also is a sex scene where afterwards the hero removes the used condom and ties it off then throws it on the ground next to the fireplace they're cuddling in front of.
The heroine pops off her top and sprays breast milk all over the place, including on the hero. The heroine comments that she is a "gusher" and the hero quips about how he knows all about that (cause I guess she gushes during sex too)
#2. The heroine (Lainey) is the most unlikable person ever. She trembles and cries and freaks out about everything from storms to airplanes to crowds and more. She spends half the novel trembling in fear or puking about something and the hero (Rook/RJ) has to come save her.
#3. You're telling me these two basically lived together and banged nonstop for 6 weeks but she never got his last name? Nahh
#4. Female characters who are in relationships with hockey players are fine, but every other female who flirts with one is a "puck bunny" or "puck slut"
#5. Lainey's mom and Walter are also terrible people. She went on like 2 dates with Walter but apparently that gives him permission to go all psycho and basically stalk her, including calling her mother and tattling because RJ was at her house. This prompts her mom to call her a floozy and yell at her.
#6. Lainey was supposedly in Alaska to study dolphins but she apparently is just writing a thesis on her computer? There is no discussion of her actually going to a research facility, a research vessel, observing these dolphins in the wild... Lainey just bangs RJ all the time and uses his internet to write her thesis. Not sure why she had to go to Alaska for that.
I could continue but I think I'm about done. I'm glad I got this book through kindle unlimited because I would have pretty upset with myself for spending actual money on it.
A Lie for a Lie kicks off with one heck of a meet-cute that turns into a bit of a mess (literally) before it circles back to cute. Rook, or RJ as he introduces himself to Lainey, solidly endeared himself to me during that whole episode. He was so gentle and kind, and I loved that he recognized right away that this woman was different and special, and from that first moment, he handled her with care, well except for that one big honking lie of omission… Lainey was so sweet and a touch naïve at first, but she was also brave, stepping way out of her comfort zone to go on this huge adventure alone.
Their magical few weeks together is abruptly cut short, and in a truly unfortunate set of circumstances, they part ways, planning to catch up with each other later. In a heartbreaking turn of events, though, that contact doesn’t go according to plan, and they lose touch. Fast forward a year, and fate steps in to reunite them in another meet-cute scenario that isn’t nearly as cute as their first meeting. RJ’s lie explodes in that moment as he sees Lainey for the first time in a year. It turns out, though, that Lainey’s got one of her own. Summoning up all the persistence, patience and purpose he can possibly muster, RJ pursues Lainey. He desperately wants a chance to prove he’s the real deal to Lainey, and she has decide if she’s willing to put her heart on the line again.
Rooted in one of my favorite tropes, A Lie for a Lie was an utterly romantic, sweet and sexy second-chance romance. Positively brimming with emotion, Hunting delivered a story that made me laugh, swoon, sigh and sob. I loved every single step of RJ and Lainey’s journey back to each other. Five smooches from me for A Lie for a Lie by Helena Hunting!

A year later RJ attends the birthday party of a team mate's child, and comes face to face with that one person. Laney. Can Laney forgive the lie? Will she let RJ back into her life? Is RJ ready for everything that comes with being part of her life?
Helena writes great stories, she has the perfect balance of angst, witty banter, real life and romance in this story. Though this story is from the same world as her Pucked series, the feeling of the book is different.
Written as a second chance romance it was sweet.. emotional..great characters...well written and with some great humour thrown in along the way what else would you want?
This time it's the story of team captain Rook Bowman and starts with his time away on Kodiak Island that brings sweet unsuspecting Lainey into his life.
Lainey is not the usual type of girl that he meets so he instantly feels relaxed and that hes able to be himself which makes his feeling for her grow quicker than ever.
No more spoilers but I can assure you it's a great fun easy to read story that leaves you wanting more more more.
Was great to get glimpses into the lives of some of the Pucked guys again too.
