My Review: 

Hiding Out by Nicole Andrews Moore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I just recently read Hiding out for a blog tour I have signed up for, Nicole Andrew Moore writing is good, the story flowed well, and character description and plot are well written. This is a contemporary romance novel with a happy ever after ending. These types of stories are what I call my Sunday reading.

The story starts off with us meeting Haley who is working for an advertising agency in a temp position that her friend secured for her. Haley hides herself, dressing in baggy clothes, keeps her head down and really doesn't want to be noticed. Running from a horrific incident Haley does what she needs to do to feel safe.

Sam Davenport runs his family business, and notices Haley, seeing that she is skittish he comes up with a plan to involve her in his life. This working relationship is not easy; Sam would love to get closer but doesn't want to scare Haley off. When Sam realizes there is something Haley is hiding from, he asks his company’s investigator to look into Haley past.

The more Haley and Sam build their friendship the safer Haley starts to feel safe. This relationship has a few bumps along the way but it is romantic at times. And Sam really tries to keep his alpha male personality on the back burner not wanting to scare or intimidate Haley.

But not all things go smoothly, as things are going well for them, someone from Haley’s past reappears. Danger is closer then they think and the mistake Sam made by digging into her past may end up being the one thing that will tear them apart.

Hiding Out has friendship, romance, suspense, secrets and of course the alpha males so many of us women like reading about. I enjoyed the story and the only thing I did find was the ending seemed a bit rushed but then it was a good ending. So I have rated it a 4 star rating and if you like your romance novels this is defiantly a book to read.

Hiding Out Short Excerpt

“Is that what you like?”  The words had come out all wrong.  What she really intended was to check for understanding.  She should have said, ‘Would you like me to handle that?’  The minute the words escaped the safe but sensual confines of her lips, Haley Iverson cringed on the other end of the phone.  What was it about that man that made her bungle her phrasing?  She bit her lip while she awaited a response.

Samuel Davenport’s eye brows had arched instantly.  Every time he spoke with his assistant, he was left feeling like a dissatisfied 1-900 caller.  It was something in her voice, the sexy, yet professional way she spoke.  Or maybe it was in the way he imagined her soft, full lips curving to form each word.  It might be the way he pictured her sitting at her desk with her shapely legs crossed, exposing ample calf, slender ankle, and whichever open toed shoe she was sporting that day.  He shook his head slightly to focus on the question at hand.

Is that what you like?  He wrapped his mind around the question.  “Oh, yes, Miss Iverson,” he said, his response immediately taking on a double meaning.  He pushed the button to disconnect then, and leaned back in his leather chair, spent.
