Librarian Laura’s Review of A Secret for a Secret

On the night they meet in a bar and end up spending the night together, both Queenie Masterson and Ryan Kingston (King) are struggling with recent curve balls in their lives. She lost her job and he just found out that his “sister” is really his mom (who had him at the age of 15), a secret that was kept from him for 30 years. Talk about mommy issues! As they knock back shots and loosen up, the swap a secret for a secret, both knowing they will probably never see one another again. The next day all that’s left of Queenie is a post-it note on King’s doorjamb. But fate has a way of rearing it’s awkward head at times, and in this case it’s six weeks later.

After recently losing two waitress jobs in a row, 24 year old Queenie moves in to the bungalow on her father’s property and agrees to work for him since his assistant is on leave. She was born when her dad was 20, and her mother never wanted a child, taking off and leaving her father to raise her on his own. She definitely has mommy issues as well. Oh, did I mention that her father Jake is the general manager for the Seattle NHL team? The same team, in fact, where the man she hasn’t been able to stop thinking about plays goalie.

King, who dresses like a Boy Scout and drives like an old man, is a hockey goalie. He’s the team member who is ultra-responsible and dependable, friendly to all the players and staff. King can’t believe his bad luck (or good luck, depending how you look at it) when Queenie is introduced by their GM as his new assistant. Dating a staff member would be in poor taste, but what’s worse, dating the GM’s daughter would be unthinkable. But King hasn’t been able to stop thinking about Queenie’s flirty, sassy mouth and her beautiful body since that night of terrible decisions six weeks ago. He should have just stuck to his practice of only drinking milk and should have known the shots would lead to trouble. The current trouble, looking so fine in a dress and heels, is also being noticed by all the players on the team. And she makes is clear that they have to be just friends, no exceptions. Much like when he’s in goal, King knows how to defend his ground and get what he wants. And King wants Queenie. As such, King plans to make her his, no matter the consequences.

What follows is an often hilarious forbidden romance between two very unique characters who couldn’t be more suited for one another. Readers will swoon at the romance and laugh out loud when they realize King is allergic to strawberries. Just wait until you read that part!

This is the third installment in the All In series, and readers will be treated to more scenes with the beloved characters from the first two books: Rook, Lainey, Bishop, Stevie, Alex, and Violet. I would love more books in this series. Helena Hunting has a way of hooking the reader in the beginning and taking them on a wild, rocky ride, and when the ride stops, they are begging for more.

Thank you to Social Butterfly PR for providing me with a review copy of this title. My reviews for the first two All In books, can be found here and here. Thanks for reading!
