GR's Summary:

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 Journey:

Hiding Out is a phenomenal story!  The main characters in this book are Samuel Davenport, a gorgeous man, with a perfectly sculpted body, who seems to be the grumpiest man in the world. He's the owner of a prestigious advertising agency, family owned, with his younger brother Adam.  Adam is the kind of guy that runs from any kind of responsibility. Also, another main character in the story is Haley Daniels, who is a temp working for the company.  Haley is a gorgeously understated beauty, who changes Samuel into butter, melting in her hands, and unrecognizable to his peers.  Samuel notices that his new temp has the most beautiful emerald green eyes, beautiful legs, sexy shoes, yet she always wears clothes that are three times too big for her.  The more Samuel is around Haley, the more he notices how she can be sweet and playful at times, and other times be a complete mess, turning jittery and unrecognizable.  She can become skidish from abrupt noises, and she gets very nervous, and jumps out of her chair.  It starts making him get unnerved.  At the same time, there is something very innocent, and alluring about her, completely opposite of his ex-wife.  He decides to use his investigator at the firm to gain knowledge of her everyday activities, and her past.  He gets his inside man, Jake Ryan, and what he finds out confirms some earlier thoughts he was afraid might be spot on.  Haley was raped, and he realizes that if he wants to get to know her, and help her, he needs to tread lightly.  Haley has a very structured life, and very predictable.  She is always in by dark, and has one friend, Ellen, that she has taken places with at the agency, while she takes leave to have her baby.  Sam has a lot of walls to tear down to get to the heart of Haley, without scaring her into running away from him, before he gets her to fall in love with him, like he's fallen for her.

I found this book to be intriguing.  The author's prose put me right into the situation happening at the time.  I loved all the characters, including the secondary characters.  This was a sad book, and Haley had to keep running to ensure that her rapist didn't/wouldn't find her again.  Inadvertantly, Samuel puts her in harms way.  There is a whole story behind that, but I will leave the surprises to readers to find out for themselves.  "No Spoilers!!!"  Their somewhat strange courtship is long and drawn out.  Sam is very careful with all his actions, to keeps Haley close to him so he can protect her, as soon as he realizes how important she has become in his life.

I recommend Hiding Out to all of our followers, and look forward to the sequel, Finally Found, coming in May 2013.  I give Hiding Out, 4 devastatingly Haunting, Love filled Stars.
