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.

I've been so excited to get into King's story, as he has come across as the level headed guy in the Seattle Hockey team, and I couldn't wait to see the girl that would be perfect for him. Queenie was his opposite, but certainly the most perfect for King!

Queenie and King initially met at a bar and had a one night stand together. When Queenie gets a job working for her father – the general manager of the Seattle team – she is quite surprised to see King again. There was no denying the chemistry between them, no matter how platonic they want to keep their relationship!

King was such a sweet guy, and always followed the rules. He thought things through and generally took things slow. He loved hockey and was very good at it, and he certainly was explosive in the bedroom!

Queenie hadn't quite found her groove in life and was often let down by her pretty absent mother. I loved how close she was with her father, but she didn't want to always rely on him. Having King in her life made things a lot easier and I could see the change in her self esteem when they were together and after she was able to make more friends.

This was quite a good story and I liked that there was a twist I didn't see coming, however I did pick one direction that the story took. It was sweet seeing these two gel, and King often spoke before thinking things through when they first got together. It was amusing seeing both of them stumble over their words when they were nervous with one another. I liked that King found control when they were intimate and how much of a gentleman he was at all times. Helena Hunting has delivered once again and I am looking forward to what she brings us next!

I have two teasers for you today, I just loved the chemistry between them! 

“I can’t believe you told her about me.”
Kingston shrugs, cheeks still pink. “We’ve been hanging out a lot lately, and I don’t keep much from her.” He picks up my ax and hands it to me.
I step up to the line on the floor. “How much have you told her?”
“We’re close but not that close.” Kingston settles his hands on my hips, and I feel his breath on my cheek when he bends down and whispers, “I’d like her to keep believing I’m a Boy Scout, even if you and I know that isn’t always true.”

I expect him to give in and kiss me, but instead he drops his head and drags the tip of his nose along the column of my throat, lips following until he pauses at my ear. “You may need to set some parameters for me, my queen, so I know how out of control I’m allowed to get here.”
I shiver in anticipation at his low warning tone and this new endearment. “No parameters.”
He pulls back, lips temptingly close. “None?”
I bite the edge of his jaw, enjoying the slight sting and tug at the base of my skull when his fingers tighten in my hair. “I’ve been waiting for months to get back into your bedroom.” I arch up and nibble his bottom lip. “Lock the Boy Scout in the closet and let yourself off your leash, King.”
