REVIEW – A SECRET FOR A SECRET (All In, #3) 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.

*****FOUR STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

He’s the calm to my storm. My still lake at dawn. My king.


Ryan Kingston is the milk drinking, khaki & polo shirt wearing, straight-laced goalie of Seattle’s top-ranking NHL team. He quickly falls for the one woman who is his complete opposite and totally forbidden. Queenie Masterson is the definition of chaos. She’s also the GM’s only daughter. Their story is incredibly steamy while light on angst and Helena Hunting’s signature comedic sense of humor. King and Queenie fall into a passionate romance and are a perfect match. It’s only King’s crazy family and a secret from Queenie’s past that post a threat to their relationship. While I found the story to be entertaining, I wished for the usual laugh-out-loud moments that I am used to from this author.



Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 4
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4
Angst: 3.5
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 4.5
