Book Description

 

 

 

Samuel Davenport runs his family’s New York based advertising agency. His brother, Adam, runs from responsibility and anything remotely boring. And his temp, Haley, runs so she’ll never be caught and hurt again. She moved to the city New Year’s Day to hide and recover, to build a new life far from her past. In an effort to lie low, Haley never expects to be more than a temp. What begins for Sam as an excuse to get to know her better, ends up being an opportunity for advancement and excitement for Haley. When Sam tries to uncover all of Haley’s mysteries, he exposes her hiding place, endangers her life, and threatens to destroy any chance of them ever having a future together.

 

My Review

Haley straightened. “In hide and seek, the person is revealed as soon as he or she is found.” She watched a moment to see that he was following along. Satisfied, she continued. “In sardines, once the person is found, the seeker climbs on in and joins the hider. No one is caught.”

Thinking on what she had just said, Sam leaned in to within a couple of inches of her face. “From what I recall of sardines, the players have to get mighty close.” He watched her swallow really hard. “And,” he added with a small degree of satisfaction, “it also means you have to let me in.”

Haley has been hiding for the past few months and she finally thinks she wants to let someone in and that person is Sam. Haley is a temp working for Sam’s company and he is completely intrigued by her because she does not seem to care about his money or his power. Sam is also intrigued by her because she has a sense of mystery and timidness to her and he wants to find out why.

Nicole Andrews Moore tackles pretty heavy subject in date rape and the road from being a victim to a survivor. Moore’s writing style is one that will keep you interested. I really wanted to rate this book higher but there were certain aspects of the book such as Sam’s silly excuses to spend time with Haley that seemed as if he was a teenager instead of a man in his early 30’s. I was also slightly frustrated after the build up of Haley confronting her attacker by how quickly the trial went and the lack of details surrounding it. Overall, Hiding Out was a solid story and a quick read. I am truly looking forward to Miss Moore’s next book because I have a feeling that Sam’s brother has quite a story to be told!!

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of Hiding Out in exchange for an honest review.

MY RATING: 3.5 Stars
