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.

Queenie and King.
There was this very sparky one night stand six weeks ago and now they find out that she's working for the manager of the hockey team he's playing for. And not only that, but said manager is her dad!
Her dad quickly initiated a no-dating-the-players policy. But they can be friends, right?
And maybe her dad won't be too mad if they asked nicely if they could date??
And his crazy family and her secret past won't become a problem soon, right?? LOL!



Another beautiful hockey romance!
Queenie and Ryan/King are soo adorable and funny and awkward. Especially sweetheart King. He's soo boy scouty and just so ... good!
I absolutely adored those two. It was so super adorable and hilarious and crazy to watch them fight for their happily ever after!
I loved that we didn't get this typical misunderstanding - you know the one? The one romances almost always use - no idea why - where we fight and break up and it could've all been cleared up with just one conversation or whatever - ugh - I hate those! ☺
I just loved reading this ... and seeing all the people again!
Can't wait for more - I wouldn't mind reading Lavender and Kody's love story one day! ☺

A SECRET FOR A SECRET was such an adorable + funny Hockey Romance!!! I just loved it!! Run to your nearest amazon for your own King - he'll be sold out in no time - and this one is MINE!

ARC received for an honest review

Another super cute story from Helena Hunting. And set in my favourite city in the USA that I have visited - Seattle. We are already on a winner!!
Forget the other two books in this series (well, don't really, but just for the minute) - A Secret for A Secret is a definite favourite.
King and Queenie are all kinds of sweet and cute and full of lust for each other.  Oy, you can cut the sexual tension through a knife, and there are proximity pheromones flying all around them *fans self*

King is so the antithesis of hockey players we have seen before.  He really is a boy scout when it comes to life, to his career, to women.  And if you are like me, you can't help smiling every time he is on the page.

I freaking adore Queenie.  She is floundering, not sure what she want in life, and now she has found her King, is even more confuzzled.

The character I didn't think I was going to get along with was Queenie's dad,and I was completely surprised with his actions and the way he reacted to things.  He was so not what I was expecting.

There were WTF moments right from the beginning of this story, and they kept on coming.  I was anxious but impatient to turn each page to find out what was happening.
I also love love loved getting to see Violet and the Waters family.  There is one that will completely steal your heart.
I want, no, I need more of this series.  Please give me more Ms Hunting.
