Publisher's Summary

Five hockey players, a cabin in the woods...and little old me, Winnie Berlin.

Sounds like the start of a fantasy, right? But it's not. It's my reality.

It all started when I got lost in the middle of the Canadian Rockies. A wicked thunderstorm sent my car mud sliding into a ditch, and for a girl whose survival skills involve finding the nearest Starbucks, I was in deep trouble.

Forced to abandon my car in search of help, I stumbled upon a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Soaking wet, irritated, and in desperate need of a hot shower, I knocked on the door for help only to be greeted by five boisterous, burly, and insanely attractive men.

Not just men.

Professional hockey players.

I hit the motherload of fantasies, right? Wrong.

Because as it turns out, one of them is my ex-boyfriend's half-brother. And when I end up crashing in their spare bedroom for the night, things take a very unexpected turn.

I'm not sure any amount of survival skills can protect my heart from Vancouver Agitators star goalie, Pacey Lawes. But as long as we kiss and don’t tell, maybe everything will be okay....

A 5 ⭐️ SLOW-BURN WITH LOL HUMOR & SO.. SO MUCH MORE

I think this is Meghan’s best best best book yet and hopefully it’s a great start to what I hope (fingers crossed) is going to continue as a series. It’s light, fun, sweet, witty, endearing, charming, sexy and so.. so much more as lost in life Winnie knocks on the right door when she’s stranded alone in the woods in a thunderstorm. They’re all fine looking men these five Hockey Players.. but there’s only one who draws her eyes more than the others.. one that takes her under his wing.. one that builds a friendship and her confidence after a toxic past relationship.. and that man is swoon-worthy Pacey Lawes. And Pacey feels the instant connection, chemistry and pull for their new house guest too.. however, I love the way Meghan doesn’t rush these two characters. Instead they excitedly explore their connection, talk, play games and lay a great foundation for possibilities.. before the passion ignites. There’s secrets that are predictably going to disrupt and derail.. and again, I loved the pace of the winning back and reunion.. that it was tentative, thoughtful, heartfelt and worked at.

Worth a credit? Oh yes absolutely, it’s a wonderful slow-burn despite their instant chemistry. It’s a well-paced, smooth, tender easy-listen with delicious splashes of hot.. and some needed character growth on both sides. Each and every one of the secondary friends are crucial in, and added to, the sense of friendship, fun and overall enjoyment and they have you liking this story even more. And the dual POV narration by Vanessa and Jason was outstanding as they brought to life all the characters, all the charm, all the passion and the pleasures, all the feels and all the fun in this addictive and very entertaining love story (.. 💕 u J).

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

Another fun book by Meghan Quinn. This book started off funny with some quirky characters. Each of the guys are 1000% different from each other which I loved because it made their friendships so much funnier. Winnie was a little flakey but in a lost kind of way, I enjoyed that she grew so much throughout this book. Pacey was everything until he wasn't.... I loved his character so much while they were getting to know each other but I couldn't connect his behavior when he got home to the guy in the rest of the book, it was just not him before or after. I'm glad this book had a happy ending and hope there will be more on the friends in this story... except the girl roommate... She was crazy and I can't image her book lol.

The narration was great I enjoy both Jason Clarke & Vanessa Edwin.

Pacey Lawes...SWOON!!!

A woman walks up to a cabin, and there are five hot AF professional hockey players. This isn’t the beginning of a joke, but a real-life fantasy Winnie Berlin wasn’t expecting. When she had car trouble, she walked up to the closest place to hopefully use the phone. What she wasn’t expecting was a group of welcoming—most of them—heavily muscled, very attractive men. Not being a hockey fan, Winnie didn’t know who these guys were. But one of them, Pacey Lawes caught her eye almost immediately.

As for Pacey, he’s obviously drawn to Winnie, but there’s something familiar about her. Turns out, she’s his half-brother’s ex-girlfriend. There’s definitely an attraction between them, but they both need to deal with some of their issues from the past before they can move forward. Due to circumstances, Winnie’s stay with the guys goes from overnight to a few more days. As they spend more time with each other, they’re quickly becoming more than friends in a temporary situation. But when someone from both their pasts makes his presence known, this will be a test to their budding relationship.

Pacey’s teammates are quite protective of him, but they’re really warming up to Winnie. This was a beautifully written story, and I’m looking forward to the other guys’ stories. They’re all adorable, complicated, and so much fun. Lots of humor, on-point dirty talking, and a very swoony hero. Winnie’s best friends are absolutely bananas. I know this is the first book in the series, but Pacey is my favorite, and I’m not sure there’s a chance of any of the other guys knocking him from the #1 spot. But I can’t wait to find out!

Jason Clarke and Vanessa Edwin did an amazing job narrating this story.

Fun Slow Burn Romance

Kiss and Don't Tell by Meghan Quinn is a standalone sports romantic comedy.

Starting out at a cabin in the Canadian Rockies, Winnie & Pacey's story is a light and fun slow burn romance with lots of hijinks, flirting, some family drama, heartache and a heartwarming ending.

I adore Jason Clarke and Vanessa Edwin their narration of Kiss And Don't Tell was fantastic, I hope they co-narrate more books together.

What happened to the story?!!

I don’t think I’ve ever read a Meghan Quinn book that wasn’t really enjoyable. When I dove into this book, it had the makings of being some of her best work. Like seriously, I was laughing, swooning, the whole bit. Pacey is literally my dream man from head to toe with an amazing personality and successful hockey career! Clarke and Edwin are a great narration team too!! About 50-60% in, the story started to drag. Then things fell apart (typical)…and I was unimpressed with the way both main characters handled themselves. They had some issues to work through but you’re not going to get anywhere shutting down, blaming the other person and failing to see how you contributed to the problem. Total lack of communication. Running away behavior. I did think it was cute how Pacey’s teammates rallied and helped him decide a plan to get his girl back…and he does (duh!)…but the plan just reminded me of a child trying to sneak up on a baby rabbit or squirrel in the woods to get a closer look without spooking them. In the relationship sense, pretty lame and boring….but necessary because Winnie was emotionally stunted and overall just immature. And then they get back together and it just ends…ok…. 3 underwhelming stars for the story.

Fine but not that fine

I read very good comments, but there are so many wrong things in this book. First him, Pacey, is sweet then he is a controller, jelous *erk! She, Whinnie (?), besides having an aweful name is so needy! There are some parts I liked but the overall story, I didn’t.
Narrators were okey.

Utterly Addicted To Vancouver Agitators!

I struggle with what I want to say about 𝑲𝒊𝒔𝒔 𝑨𝒏𝒅 𝑫𝒐𝒏'𝒕 𝑻𝒆𝒍𝒍 by Meghan Quinn. Oh it’s not a bad struggle, don’t think that. It’s a good struggle. I felt a connection to Winnie (I lost my own mom 8 years ago), and I absolutely 𝙡𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙙 the way Pacey loved with all of himself! They were the perfect fit! I struggle with what I want to say because I want to tell you all about it and I fear spoiling it. So, my “mini” review will consist of this: read it. It’s a fabulous book that will have you chuckling and cheering on these amazing characters! And the side characters??? Oh my gosh you will adore them, too!

Vanessa Edwin & Jason Clarke were PERFECT for narrating! I wasn’t bored and the voices they lent to each character was spot on! Loved them!

Hockey Players to The Rescue

Winnie is lost. Literally and figuratively: she took off on trip to find herself after the death of her mom and she heads to Banff, Canada on a mission to steal a trophy from her estranged uncle so that she can "avenge" her mom. On the way there, she gets caught in storm, gets lost, gets her car stuck in the mud - all without cell phone reception; She tries to find help and finally gets to a house, full of hockey players relaxing off season! Nope, you pervs, get your minds off the gutter, it's not that kind of book! (Nothing wrong with that kind of book, but this just ain't it!) They give her shelter and she's particularly drawn to one of them, Pacey Lawes, who's hot as sin with his long hair and is very sweet and chivalrous. 

Pacey is mesmerized by this girl who showed up from nowhere and he can't shake the feeling that he knows her. It's because he DOES - she's his half-brother's ex. A brother he barely sees and with whom has a strained relationship.

While stranded there (it'll take a while for the tow to be able to reach them and get her car out of the ditch), they start to get to know each other better. But pretty soon the past will come knocking on their door...

I enjoyed this one, even though it was pretty instalove-y. The brotherhood between the guys is amazing. Meghan Quinn writes friendships really well! Speaking of friends. I wanted to sedate Kate, though... Take a chill pill, child!

Fun, sweet book.

Narration: the lovely growly voice of the talented Jason Clarke and the amazing Vanessa Edwin in this one (she's scary good with her male voices!!)

Possible triggers: mentions of death of a parent, cancer diagnosis and grief; MMC suffers  from debilitating migraines

Clueless gal meets a special hockey player while stranded

First in series about a group of hockey players for a Vancouver team. This story revolves around a very nice goalie with the strange name of Pacey and a girl named Winnie. She recently lost her mom to brain cancer and just prior to that had been dumped by her jerky boyfriend Josh. Small world because Josh happens to be Pacey’s estranged half brother. Of course she doesn’t know that and he doesn’t figure it out until he’s become infatuated with her. Minor drama ensues along with his very serious health scare but it is clear these 2 were meant for each other. A sweet story for the most part. A few hot scenes, some comedy, a cast of interesting friends for future books and winning performances by Jason Clarke and Vanessa Edwin. Worth the credit or a combo purchase of book and Audible if you like a good rom com.

Liked the supporting characters

I really liked the hockey players' friendship. I for one would like a separate book about Holmes. He was the most interesting character in the story, in my opinion.
The romance part was a bit over the top and alarming. Too possessive. Ended up skipping ahead, especially in Winnie's parts, but that had much to do with the narrator who whistles her s's and gave me headaches.

I need more! Brilliant!

What a fantastic start to this new Sports Romance series from Meghan Quinn. This time we are venturing into the world of Ice Hockey and I couldn't have been more excited to get started. Kiss and Don't Tell had everything I love about Meghan's writing. A loveable, and most importantly relatable heroine and a Hero that is a good guy through and through. One that you just want all for yourself.

Winnie finds herself stranded in a storm on the doorstep of a houseful of pro NHL players during their off season. I loved how the relationship between her and the boys evolved from them not wanting her there at all, to them calling her their girl and making her a part of their family. Pacey as a Hero was everything he needed to be to compliment Winnie and push her to come through the fog she has been living in after the loss of her Mother. The Banter between Pacey, and the other players, Halsey, Taters, Hornsby and Posey was spot on and it didn't take long to be intrigued by each and everyone of them.

There were some little nods to the Brentwood Boys and the Dating by Numbers series too for any fans of other MQ books which was a nice touch I thought. What can I say really, this book felt like a small town romance in many ways with the characters being hidden away in a cabin and the small resort town of Banff being a great backdrop for the story. The book had bags of charm and the secondary characters AKA the other players and Winnie's best friends Kate and Max were shining stars in their own right too.

I have to also commend the Audiobook. Jason Clarke and Vanessa Edwin were FANTASTIC!! They both embodied Winnie and Pacey to perfection for me, narrating all the nuances, the sass, the feels in all the ways I hoped for. The moment when they try and get Winnie's car out of the ditch had me cracking up with laughter while listening. One I will listen to again and again for sure.

Kisses all the way

Wow what a story . Meghan Quinn pulled all the stops on this story . This story is about 5 best friends that also play hockey for the same team.
Hero is Pacey. Heroine is Winnie

What happened when Winnie gets stranded up the mountain in Banff . She has no choice but to go to the house that the light is on. It’s a mother of a down bore of rain. Once she walks in there are 5 guys. One of the guys can’t put his finger on it …. Where do I know her from. She doesn’t know either. Sparks fly between both of them.
Later Pacey figured out that Winnie is his half brothers ex. Does he tell Winnie. Grab it and see

Both performers Jason Clarke, Vanessa Edwin are perfect together. They brought the story to life. They did the voices for each character great.

Pacey and Winnie

How cute are Pacey and Winnie? So much adorable in one book. Winnie really needed help when she came across the house Pacey and friends were staying in. Pacey is drawn to her and the fun begins. So much fun banter and lots of laugh out loud moments.
The thing that kept this from being five stars for me was the big secret that one of them was keeping. It's the kind of thing that needs to be disclosed and discussed early on. Otherwise, it's really pretty cruel to the other person. Seems like lying and it kinda deceitful. All in all, i really enjoyed this book and I recommend.

Fun, flirty and additive - Audio is the way to go

Be still my beating heart. Jason Clarke as Pacey Lawes was utter perfection. I couldn’t imagine a better match. Pacey,’s strength, his humour, his alpha traits, all come out in Jason’s narration, because let’s face it, Pacey is all those things as well as being a pro hockey player (goalie no less), he’s also the perfect book boyfriend. When Winnie Berlin comes a knocking on a his teammate’s cabin during the off-season she gets more than she bargained for. Stranded during a rainstorm, Pacey becomes her knight in shining armour, along with 4 of his hunky teammates, some of whom are less than hospitable. Herein starts a rollercoaster ride of humour, romance, fun and games, and of course a little added drama (it’s still a lie even if it is by omission Pacey). I could not get enough of this story, the characters, the humour, and of course the sexy scenes, so sweet, romantic and very Meghan Quinn. Vanessa Edwin was the perfect Winnie to Jason Clarke’s Pacey.

Loved it

Pacey Lawes is my new book boyfriend!
He's sweet, thoughtful, funny, helpful, kind, and protective.
He listens, he opens doors, he teases, he touches, and he delivers in the bedroom.

Winnie is (as Pacey says) quite extraordinary.
A little shy and timid to start with.
Super funny once she warms up.
Caring, beautiful (inside and out), kind, brave, and absolutely PERFECT for Pacey.


The chemistry and sexual tension in this book were OFF THE CHARTS. The heat between them, the desire that radiated from the pages... it melted me into a puddle of gooey happiness.
There was the typical Meghan Quinn humour injected into the story (which always puts a smile on my face) but add in Max and Katherine (who is just plain hilarious with her crazy) and the chuckles felt like they kept tumbling from my lips.
I also appreciated the inclusion of 'Orson's TikTok' - gah! he makes me smile as soon as I read his name.

Yes, there was drama. It was painful to watch unfold.
You could sense the regret as soon as the words came out.
A boatload of groveling (for which I award Pacey with an A+ for effort), a bit of time, some beautiful gestures, and then all seemed right in the world again.

I can NOT WAIT to learn more about the other Agitators, I know they will provide us all with laughs, fun times, and crazy shenanigans.
Jason and Vanessa did a phenomenal job of narration.


PSA: do not listen to or read this book in places that spontaneous snorts of laughter are inappropriate.

A Sports Romantic Comedy!

Oh! I loved this one! This is a great Sports Romantic Comedy. Winnie and Pacey's story is beautifully written, funny, and flirty, sexy, heartwarming, gripping, and romantic., filled with drama, angst, and twists and turns. I liked Pacey! He is handsome! Winnie is such a great character, funny, and beautiful. I like their banter. The supporting characters are amazing. I like the friendship, and the brotherhood in this story. This is definitely one of my favorite books written by Meghan Quinn. Jason Clarke and Vanessa Edwin did a wonderful job with the narration. I like their voices together, and they are perfect as Pacey and Winnie. I enjoyed it, and I highly recommend it. If you like Sports Romantic Comedy, this one is definitely for you!

Sweet Hockey Story

And just like that, Meghan Quinn has created another series! This book was a mix of rom-com, sports (Hockey!) and angst. We were introduced to 5 HOT Hockey players in this story. Pacey Lawes & Winnie Berlin are the main characters in this book. They meet randomly when Winnie's cat breaks down in the Canadian Rockies. Both are flawed with recent traumas. The Steam level in this book is Hot! Jason Clarke & Vanessa Edwin do an amazing job narrating.

Had me hooked from the prologue

Why didn’t I listen to this book sooner?

I finally got around to a listen as I was not disappointed. The book had everything, it was funny, a bit steamy and had good feels. The banter between characters was so entertaining.

Both narrators were brilliant in their delivery. I have heard them both and enjoyed listening to them in other books but I would say this is now my favourite book for both of them. I will definitely listen to this again … and again.
