From the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series comes a romantic comedy about instant attraction, second chances, and not-so-little white lies.

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.


With the delightful first book in her All In series, Helena Hunting takes her readers for a sexy ride filled with temptation, love when they least expect it and the fallout of not so little lies. A pro hockey player takes advantage of the fact that the gorgeous marine biologist who falls into his life while traveling to Alaska is blissfully unaware of who he is. Fun ensues and then life gets in the way.

Rook AKA RJ is a really easy guy to like. He loves his hockey life, but it’s easy to see why he enjoys a little chemistry with a pretty lady who doesn’t seem to have a clue who he is. When life gets in the way and he realizes he has no way of contacting her, life is a little less bright.

Lainey is blown away with the guy she meets in Alaska, and when it’s time to head back home she can’t seem to get in touch to leave her contact info. More than a year later, life puts them in touch again, but he’s still got a major lie to come clean about, and it turns out she’s got some surprises of her own.

I recommend this book to anyone loving a little humor with your sports romance. The characters are fun, their connection is yummy and their happily ever after is oh so sweet.
