Oh boy, this book was an emotional roller coaster and I loved every minute of it! King was absolutely AMAZING...and exactly what I hoped he'd be: a stand-up amazing man, but with a secret edge to him that only came out around his "Queen," our lovely main character, Queenie, who I adored! She was sassy, pure chaos to King's calm, and flawed in a very realistic and authentic way. I loved both her and King to bits! Their chemistry was so, so sexy and they complemented each other in the most ...more

Helena and hockey, they go together like olives and pineapple, if that's too weird for you imagine two things that blissfully mesh, that IS Helena Hunting and hockey. This whole story started in Pucked, and seeing this season come to a close is bittersweet. I know we will see some of these characters again, but still, it is not my usual cackle fest of a review resting in the knowledge more books were coming with these characters in them. Instead, we've seen people grow up, mature, and move on in ...more

I LOVE this series. It's definitely one of my favourite hockey series, and every time I finish the latest book, I can't wait for the next. I was hooked from the very start with this, and there was a huge shock right there to begin with.

Ryan/King and Queenie are both very likeable characters, and they both have a fair bit going on their lives to try and deal with. Personal issues or insecurities. They have a crackling connection,

Attention all sports romance lovers, this is the series for you! If you love a heroine whos a bit of a chaotic mess and a hero with and alpha outside and a soft, squishy, big-hearted inside, you'll fall helmet over hockey skates for Queenie Masterson and Ryan King" Kingston. These two had a brief encounter, and it's quite the shock when King reports in to start pre-season training and learns that the girl from his very out of character one night stand is his general manager's assistant and ...more

A Secret for a Secret is the final book in the All in Series and following Kingston and Queenie. What can I say about King....... you know the saying a Gentleman and the streets and a wolf in the sheets is the perfect description. Kingston; milk drinker, speed follower and all around Boy Scout!
Queenie a little lost and a complete whirlwind, and just what Kingston needs . These two compliment each other like pineapple and olives.

This book came at a time when I really needed cheering up, and Huntings narrative did just that. Warning: drinking hot tea while reading is risky. I spat mine over my PJ bottoms from laughing so hard! But seriously, A Secret for a Secret isnt all laughs and giggles, its a standalone opposites attract hockey romance with just the right amount of angst, swoon-worthy moments and loveable characters. And of course, as its book 3 in the All In Series, I got to meet up with my favourite players and ...more

If you have been following this series, you will know that Ryan Kingston, or just King to his friends and team mates, surfaced in book two as Bishop's best friend. In Bishop's words, Kingston is super straight-laced, the straightest arrow he has ever met, and is extremely literal. Kingston gets along with everyone, is a milk loving, early nighter and a rule follower. Based on this description, I wasn't all that sure that Kingston was going to be my new BBF, but...... I should have trusted HH ...more

Helena Huntings A Secret for a Secret is the perfect combination of chemistry, humor, and emotion, and is an apt conclusion to her All In series.

NHL goalie Ryan Kingston is the epitome of a rule follower, from his overly cautious driving, to his perfectly pressed khakis. Queenie Masterson is a free-spirited ball of chaos who is trying to figure out her life. After a hot night of hooking up, both are sure they wont see the other again. That is, until they both realize that Ryan plays hockey for

After being introduced to Kingston in A Favor for a Favor, I couldn't wait to read more about him! A milk loving, sweetheart from Tennesse - yes please!

Kingston ends up meeting a woman at a bar named Queenie. They meet at a particular low point in both of their lives. Kingston and Queenie end up getting drunk together, have a one night stand and don't see each other for a number of years.

Fast forward a few years and Kingston is now a NHL hockey player in Seattle. Queenie has decided to take a

Rook, Bishop and finally King! How didn't I connect these names until King, I have no idea🤦♀🤷♀😂😂

A Secret for A Secret is King and his Queen story.

If you already read the previous two book, specially Bishop story, you've meet the calm, collected, all American sweetheart scout boy personification, pollo and khakis lover, Ryan King.

This man is a dream. Not like the other jock I've ever meet who's rowdy, wild and bed hopper, King is a gentleman. He's that dependable best friend. Straight follow

A Secret for a Secret

This is book three in the All In series. If you've read the other series then you have a rough idea of how Kingston is. He's the goalie, someone who colors within the line, a super safe driver, and loves instead of fighting. Queenie, she is all things creative, messy, and a bit lost. Kingston and Queenie; they are a perfect pair, Yin to Yang,

Ive really enjoyed this series and I was super excited to read Kings book! I mean, who wouldnt want to read about our favorite milk drinking Boy Scout?!

King was everything I thought hed be and more. I wasnt expecting him to have that kind of feisty side, but was so happy when it came out. I loved how fierce he was with Queenie and how protective he was of her when people were treating her badly. He recognized her worth and stopped at nothing to make sure she realized it. He was her ride or die

This was such a great series and the addition of this book made it that much better. I had hoped after reading Bishop's book that we would get to see what made King tick. King did not disappoint and I felt that they pairing of him and Queenie proved that opposites attract. At times, Kingston was a little too good to be true in his boy scout ways but he was perfect for the cyclone known as Queenie. The pair brought together by a secret kept from Kingston by his family and a one night stand the ...more

I just want to note that I would have finished this in one night but I wanted to make it last; yes as usual the story is that good. Thank you Helena!!!!!!
Kingston who is the most sweetest straight laced hockey player finds himself at a bar with drinks lined up in front of him trying to get wasted to deal with a family secrete in comes a welcomed chaos by the name of Queenie. They both find out they are not much for drinking but decided to make a pack share a secrete for a secrete and do shots

We meet Queenie and man that poor girl has some hangups and they are understandable, her mom was horrible, she wanted her dad to have a life since he was really young when Queenie was conceived and unfortunately Queenie had horrible taste in men, pre King. Then we have King whom we have met before in the previous books, as straight laced as they come and dude really needed a shake up and he got that and more with Queenie, these two were so different and yet what each other truly needed.

This should come as no surprise to say Helena has once again slap-shotted the hell out of this book. Every time I read the first few paragraphs of any of her books it feels like coming home. I know itll always be a great enjoyable read with lots of laughter, smirks & page turning right to the end. This book was no different.

I loved Kingston in Bishops book so I was happy to get his story next. He is so so kindhearted, respectful, funny & basically you all around nicest guy ever butttt

A Secret for a Secret is the 3rd book in the All in Series and can be read as a stand-alone. But to get to know the team dynamics I recommend reading the books in order. And believe me, they are all worth it!!!

Queenie starts working for her dad - who is the GM of the Seattle Ice Hawks - as a PA. While introducing her to the team she recognizes one player in particular: Ryan Kingston - the man she had a one night stand with a few weeks prior.

Ryan is equally shocked to see Queenie again - as hes a

Everything is going great right? Well, maybe not when the new general managers daughter just happens to be his last hookup!! Oops! Can they keep it professional with the no dating policy?

King and Queenie's relationship is everything I wanted for King. We get to discover the depth of why King is how he is, squeaky clean, kind, the best of friends, upstanding.

Kinstons (King) life is full of order and rules. All which work well for the most perfect guy in the world. Unlike some of his NHL teammates he is a milk drinking, speed limit driving, well-mannered gentleman who meets Queenie whose life is a constant flux between a hurricane ...more

No place Id rather be than the eye of your storm.
I have been anticipating this final book in this series. I was very curious how she was going to make a sweet, straight & marrow Kingston into a swoon hero. But never doubt Helena she is the master. My favorite part of this book was getting to meet all the Baby Puck, I truly cant wait for their stories.
Queenie is the exact opposite to King which is what makes them work. Plus the chemistry is epic. I laughed so many times with this book.

This book should come with a warning label! Most of hers should if Im being honest. Something like...
Warning: Not intended for public consumption. Side effects may include: laughing uncontrollably and loudly, flushed cheeks, dry mouth, heart eyes and being slightly feverish. You may also experience complete and utter satisfaction. Dont be alarmed if you experience any of these, as it is perfectly safe and you will return to normal sometime later.
I cant with King. Hes so adorable, just like I

It took me longer than I'd like to admit to notice the epic name play between Kingston and Queenie. It's embarrassing. I've been so excited to see what a guy like him in love looks like. I mean he's so straight-laced, always level headed, drinkin milk instead of shots. What kind of woman would be good for him?

Enter Queenie. Kind of an artistic storm cloud. Her life isn't all figured out or settled, and they definitely have some hurdles to get past, but she brings Kingston ALIVE. ESPECIALLY
