[Book Review] A Secret for A Secret by Helena Hunting


From New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting comes a new romance about trading secrets, breaking the rules, and playing for keeps.

My name is Ryan Kingston, and I’m a rule follower. I’ve never been in a fistfight. I always obey the speed limit. I don’t get drunk, and I definitely don’t pick up random women at bars.

Except the night I found out that my whole existence has been a lie.

I got drunk. And picked up a stranger.

Her name was Queenie, and she was everything I’m not: reckless, impulsive, and chaotic. We did shots and traded secrets. And ended up naked at my place.

She left me a thank-you note in the morning and her panties as a parting gift. But no way to contact her.

Six weeks later I’m sitting in the first official team meeting of the season, and there she is. I neglected to mention that I’m the goalie for Seattle’s NHL team.

And Queenie? Turns out she’s the general manager’s daughter.

I LOVED Queenie and Kingston’s story. This is the 3rd book of the All in Series, which is a little spin off from the Pucked Series.

Queenie is trying to get back off her feet after losing her job, she moves back home and takes the job as her dad’s assistant who happens to be the General Manager for the Seattle NHL team, on her first day she comes face to face with Kingston… the guy who she hooked up with a few weeks ago – turns out that he’s the goalkeeper for dads team.

This story is super sweet,  I liked how genuine Kingston was, he was really understanding and supportive to Queenie which was lovely, not too much macho man stuff going on he was the right amount of protective without being overbearing. Queenie has made a few mistakes and is trying to figure out her life, outside influences have done a number on her self esteem and she pretty much feels like she’s a failure at everything.

I think part of the reason these two worked so well was that they really picked each other up when the other was down. King made her see that she is worthy and can do whatever she puts her mind too.

A highlight of this book is, of course, seeing how all the old characters are from the Pucked series, mainly Violet and Alex, it’s always a treat when these two pop up.

In a nutshell…

A great feel-good Hockey romance that will leave you feeling happy.

My Rating: 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟
