A Secret For A Secret by Helena Hunting Review



* * * * * * * * * *


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 have been anxiously awaiting Ryan Kingston’s story, and A Secret For A Secret was worth every second of the wait. Helena Hunting gave me more than I hoped for in this sweet, sexy, easy-reading opposites-attract romance. King was the team good guy. He’s polite, respectful and level-headed, and he completely endeared himself to me with his milk-drinking and polo-and-khaki-wearing ways. King was full of surprises though, and despite his strait-laced appearance and old-fashioned ways, there was a dirty-talking alpha lurking under those pristinely pressed polos, and Queenie gave him the safe place he needed to let that part of his personality out.

Queenie was the polar opposite of King in every way, and while I adored her sassy spirit, my heart hurt a little for her. On paper, these two didn’t quite match up. Where Queenie was pandemonium, King was peace, yet they defied that logic by actually working spectacularly well together. Her chaos needed his calm, and he needed a woman worthy of that effort from him. He was the only person who really saw beyond her messy exterior to the beautiful, talented, kind woman beneath, and he became her loudest cheerleader. I loved this dynamic, and I loved these two together so much.

Hunting told a captivatingly sweet and sexy story in A Secret For A Secret. I was completely caught up in King and Queenie, and I couldn’t put this book down. My heart raced and ached as these two found their way together, and I loved every minute of their journey to happily ever after. Five smooches from me for A Secret For A Secret by Helena Hunting!
