Publisher's Summary

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.

Great series

I've been so looking forward to King's story. He is such a solid and dependable nice guy, all about following the rules and being super organised with every aspect of his life.......and then he meets Queenie. Queenie who is unorganised and impulsive, and has a history of not making the best decisions for herself. Despite their differences, these 2 just work so well together, I adored how supportive King was of Queenie and how he rolled along with her chaos. A Secret for a Secret had just that right amount of drama that had me wanting to know what was going to happen next.

All of the scenes involving the twins were SO CUTE! They were both so adorable, especially Lavender, she seemed to appear more in the second half than River. And my favourite guy Bishop was back (being King's bestie he appeared more often than the other team mates) with his anti social ways. I love his character, he cracks me up with his lack of filter and moodiness. I've really enjoyed all 3 books in this series, the audio versions of all 3 have narrators that I really enjoy listening to.

The Calm to My Chaos

Overall 4.5 stars
Performance 4.5 stars
Story 4.5 stars

I have been in a bit of a reading slump with everything going on in the world, but when the opportunity to read and listen to A Secret for Secret came up, I couldn't resist. I have been waiting to get my hands on Kingston's story from the moment he was introduced in the series, and he was everything I hoped he would be and more! I know that some readers love the bad boys and others can't get enough of the alphaholes, but there is no hero I love more than the all around good guy with the heart of gold. I don't think that there could have been a more perfect hero written for me than Ryan Kingston.

I loved everything about King and each new quirky thing I learned about him, from his geriatric driving skills to the OCD dishwasher loading, just made me love him more. On paper, Queenie couldn't have been more different than King, but I loved how they challenged and also supported each other. I do wish that Queenie would have gained her confidence a little sooner, but given her history, I understand why things played out the way they did. King and Queenie each learned a thing or two from the other and they complemented each other very well. Plus, their chemistry was amazing and scorching hot! I thought that I was going to burst into flames from all of the anticipation and build up. Having King be the opposite of a boy scout in bed was a fantastic bonus ;) What I love best though, is that Helena Hunting can write an insanely sexy scene and follow it with one of the most hilarious and awkward moments ever. Strawberries will never quite be the same for me. LOL

The story was fairly low on angst, but there was a little too much OW/OM drama going on around our characters at times for me. I did appreciate that it was never a question of where King or Queenie stood in that drama though. The series and characters definitely live up to the "All In" name. Catching up with Pucked series favorites, Alex, Violet, and their family was wonderful and I loved getting to see what the future holds for them. I'm excited to see where these Lavender and River story bread crumbs lead and I definitely have my fingers crossed that momster and a certain GM might get their own HEA. A Secret for a Secret was a wonderful book to finish this series!

The audiobook casting was amazing! I have to say that Jason Clarke was a million percent the perfect choice to voice Kingston. He has just the right amount of boyish charm and sexy growl to bring the character to life. Stella Bloom was equally fantastic as Queenie and I was very impressed by their ability to voice numerous characters (male and female) distinctly and believably. This was a truly enjoyable listening experience.

loved the idea, plot was lacking

The book was very easy to get into. i thought that the sexual tension in the beginning was great, the idea behind the story was interesting, and the romance enticing.
but i really felt the plot was lacking, the height of the story didn't last long enough, nor was it intense as it should've been. some characters sometimes felt a bit flat, while others didn't reach their full potential, which i believe would have been in the plots best intrest.

overall i thought it was very nice, but didn't live up to it's true potential.

So far I hate Queenie

I'm only at ch10. I totally adore Kingston but I can honestly say I can't stand queenie. Shes a major cocktease and poor Kingston is caught in her crosshairs. And I really dont like Stella Blooms voice. Maybe reading the book would have me feeling different about queenie but I'll never know now. So many times in 10 short chapters I've thought, what a b*tch. Maybe it'll get better? Here's hoping.

Loved this story!

Another fantastic book in the All In series. King is the goalie for the Seattle NHL. He is as wholesome as they come and doesn’t do one night stands, except for the one time a few months ago. . Queenie has had her fair share of challenges and when she takes the job as her father’s (The general manager of the Seattle NHL team) assistant, she has no idea that she is about to run into her one night stand. They have electric chemistry from the start and it is a challenge to not act of the chemistry that is still there in their current situation. I loved King and his sweetness and abilities to roll with the chaos that Queenie’s world seems to bring. This is a stand alone book, but we also get to catch up with some of our favorites from the previous books. I loved that we got a great scenes with Bishop and Rook, in addition to Violet. I also loved seeing Alex and Violet’s kids, especially Lavender and can’t wait to read more her in the future. I definitely recommend this book!

“The calm to my storm”

Helena Hunting knocks this one out of the park. I think this book is my favorite in the series. I have many reasons, this story flows so smoothly, all the characters have amazing roles and the chemistry between Queenie and Kingston is perfect. So worth my time.

Perfect Boy Scout Kingston!!

I've enjoyed every book in this series and I had high expectations for the polo and khaki wearing Boy Scout, King. I wasn't disappointed!

King and Queenie meet at a bar when they are having a terrible day. They confide in each other and end up going home together. They agree on one night only. Until they run into each other a few weeks later. They fight their attraction and try to remain platonic. Shortly, they realize that it is pointless to fight their feelings.

Queenie is the perfect amount of disorder to King's orderly life. The two face many ups and downs -- some humorous and others serious. Throughout it all, King wins Queenie over with all of the little things he does for her and his constant support. King will have you swooning!

I can't say enough good things about this funny, sweet, sexy romance.

Just ok

It was an ok read but the male was just too flat for me. Maybe I like the bad boy players but King was literally like a proper Boy Scout and couldn’t put a foot wrong (nope actually I correct myself he did curse once)😂The names in the book are laughable not just the King, Queenie and momster but the kids names seriously? I know it’s 2020 and all but it was just a no no on the names from me.
