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.
A Secret for a Secret is an opposites attract love story with a crazy cast of characters and lots of steam! Hunting brings us back to Seattle for Ryan’s story.
Ryan is an alter boy-always does the right thing, doesn’t like alcohol, and definitely doesn’t do one night stands. Queenie is a party girl-she is as free spirited as they come, and has no problems with casual sex. The fact that these two have chemistry is undeniable. However, Queenie leaves after their tryst with nothing more than a post it note.
I liked these two as a couple! The both help each other be brave in different ways. They really are the ying to the other’s yang. Overall, the story is low angst, which I really appreciate! You also get cameos from the previous couples in the series, and I love that too. Finally, the story has a touch of forbidden romance because Queenie’s father, the general manager, is NOT okay with players dating his daughter. Since Ryan is such a good guy, this is a challenge for him, but he is willing to do what it takes to be with Queenie.
A Secret for a Secret will delight fans of Huntings books because you get the same witty banter, steamy sex, and laughs throughout!
