A Lie for a Lie by Helena Hunting


Release Date: October 15, 2019

Publisher: Montlake Romance


Sometimes I need an escape from the demands, the puck bunnies, and the notoriety that come with being an NHL team captain. I just want to be a normal guy for a few weeks. So when I leave Chicago for some peace and quiet, the last thing I expect is for a gorgeous woman to literally fall into my lap on a flight to Alaska. Even better, she has absolutely no idea who I am.

Lainey is the perfect escape from my life. My plan for seclusion becomes a monthlong sex fest punctuated with domestic bliss. But it ends just as abruptly as it began. When I’m called away on a family emergency, I realize too late that I have no way to contact Lainey.

A year later, a chance encounter throws Lainey and me together again. But I still have a lie hanging over my head, and Lainey’s keeping secrets of her own. With more than lust at stake, the truth may be our game changer. 


First let me start by saying, I am adamantly against lying. Yes, yes, we all are right? Psh, we all say that. But I have “truth” tattooed on my body in latin because it means that much to me. So whenever I go into books where the MC is lying, I never know if I’ll be able to get into them. Well, I LOVED this damn book. I think both characters’ lies by omission were for valid reasons, and they messed up, but that’s what makes them human. I’m so glad the story brings them back together, and we get to see just how great a guy Rook is. Even though they lied, they are never malicious. There is this underlying goodness about what they are trying to do, and I love seeing them figure out how to move past the lies. This book had so many elements I’m in love with and I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series!
