Like a chess master, he carefully weighs his next move . . . advancing slowly until he is sure he can capture his helpless pawn. For in his mind, there’s no way to . . .

Sean Flynn should feel lucky he’s alive. But his betrayal by a close friend—and two years on death row—have left him feeling only numb. When his conviction was overturned, Sean retreated to a quiet woodland

Let me say up front that Beg for Mercy (the first book in this series) was one of the most outstanding RS books I've read this year. While Hide from Evil was quite good and certainly held my interest, it suffered in comparison to its predecessor. But Jami Alden set the bar waaay high with Beg for Mercy with the plot, the suspense, and the characters, so maybe it's a little unfair to expect lightning to strike twice?

Caution: Possible spoilers ahead...

This was another solid 4 star read from this author. Plenty of action in and out of bed.

Sean was now a free man, living a quiet life. But all that changed when Krista, the Prosecutor, who helped put him behind bars for 2 years, shows up at his cabin with questions she wants answered. But there are folks who don’t want her and him to uncover the secrets that lie buried. Got to catch up with some characters from the previous book.

I will read the third in the series at some stage but I did not real

After reading "Beg for Mercy" there was absolutely no way I was going to miss this one or the next one, FEAR NO EVIL by Jami Alden. After starting the series out on such a high note, I was afraid that HIDE FROM EVIL couldn't or wouldn't live up to the hype. But I shouldn't have had any doubts. Jami Alden has another winner. Sean is a haunted, traumatized man who has suffered quite enough. I loved his character and the man he stands for. The coupling of him and Krista, the woman who is partly res ...more
Hide from Evil is the second book in an untitled trilogy by Jami Alden, the first book of which skyrocketed its way towards my favorites book shelf earlier this year. If you are tempted to pick this one up, not that you can’t read this as a standalone, but in my opinion you definitely need to read book 1 first to experience the full impact of the story as it unfolds and for you to be invested in the characters and the outcome of their happily ever after as much as I have been ever since finding ...more

This was a very exciting and fast paced book that had me hooked right from the start. This is book 2 in the series and I really enjoyed this story line. Loved all the characters too and Jami brought a bit more heat with this story than she did Beg For Mercy and if you know me that is always' a plus.
We get a nice HEA at the end and believe me these two deserved it.

Loved it. Just as good as Beg for Mercy. A GREAT steamy hot, nail-biting romance suspense series, so glad I finally took everyone up on their recommendation to read this one. Alden writes quite a bit of her stories from the male POV, and I love that. More please!!
I've been waiting for this book ever since I finished Beg for Mercy and this one picks up the from the events that happened in the previous book.

Sean Flynn is trying to come to terms with having spent three years of his life in prison on death row for a crime he didn't commit. His sister, Megan, was largely responsible for literally sparing his life by helping to find the real killer. Krista Slater, the deputy prosecuting attorney responsible for getting Sean's conviction, worked even harder to get him exonerated. She's still guilt-ridden over what happened to him but is also convinced that the real killer didn't act alone and is determi ...more

The first two books of this series have made Jami Alden a must read for me. I loved both of them. They both have a great mixture of suspense and romance. While I thought Beg for Mercy was wonderful, I liked Hide from Evil even more.

After being introduced to Sean Flynn in the first book, I was glad to read his story. He made a very sympathetic hero, a wounded soul who remained caring and protective regardless of being through the trauma of believing his execution for a murder he did not commit w

This is a great romantic suspense book and sequel to Beg For Mercy. I strongly recommend reading Beg For Mercy first because the characters here play a big role in the first one and the story lines are heavily intertwined. I had a lot of anticipation for this book after being so pleased with Beg For Mercy, and, thankfully, it delivered. It's very steamy with a high quotient of romance, but the suspense is still hot and heavy. For me, who often finds not enough sex or romance in my suspense, this ...more

I was lucky enough to win an ARC of Hide from Evil and I LOVED this book!

Hide from Evil picks up a few months after Sean has been released from prison and exonerated from murder charges. He's living a solitary life, trying to put his life back together after 3 years in prison when Krista Slater shows up at his cabin.

Krista doesn't think Nate Brewster was acting alone as the Slasher and she's determined find the truth. She hired a PI who led her to Jimmy Caparula who coincidentally commits suic

I might be in the minority on this--I've seen some of my GR friends have said they preferred the first book in this trilogy, BEG FOR MERCY--but I liked this story, that paired up wrongfully convicted Sean Flynn with the prosecutor who put him on death row for murder, better than BEG FOR MERCY. The conflict between these two is just as combustible as their mutual attraction, which makes for some supercharged interactions. And though unlikely, their reasons for joining forces to figure out who was ...more

Another great addition to this series. I really enjoy Jami Alden's writing style. I still think Pamela Clare is one of the best RS writers out there but Jami Alden certainly doesn't disappoint. The intensity wasn't as strong in this one in regards to the suspense but it was still very well played out in this story. I loved the almost "redeeming" of her father, even though it wasn't a huge part of the story. It was still nice to see.

I really enjoyed the love story between Krista and Sean. The lov
Krista Slater is drowning in guilt over putting Sean Flynn into prison for a crime he didn't commit. She is starting to question her judgement as well as whether his case should be closed. She suspects something more, something bigger is going on and when an informant unexpectedly "kills himself" on the night he is to meet her with top secret information, she's confident there is more to this case than meets the eye. So off she goes to find Sean Flynn. Krista is the last person Sean ever expects ...more
First of all, some parts of the summary blurb is a bit misleading.  I wouldn't necessarily call the main antagonist of this book a "cunning mastermind," to be honest.  He's really just another evil, malicious dude with a lot of money and no conscience, and a hard-on for power.  And also, while I'm not a fan of seeing into the villain's aspect of the story, you really DON'T see enough of our main antagonist's side of things to be able to conclude that he's a criminal mastermind of some kind.

Following his exoneration, Sean Flynn is only interested in one thing - being left alone to get on with his life. In contrast, Prosecuting Attorney, Krista Slater, is determined to uncover the truth behind that conspiracy that led to Sean’s wrongful conviction. Unfortunately for both Sean and Krista, the powerful men responsible are intent on putting an end to any investigation even if that means putting an end to Sean and Krista, permanently!

After a somewhat slow start I felt - this book had lots of action going on. Sean was sentenced and put on death row for a crime he didn't commit. Krista was the prosecutor that put him there. After a little digging - Krista and Sean uncover a web of lies that is going to rock the city. I was really looking forward to Sean's story after Beg for Mercy. He was such a battered soul - betrayed by his supposed friends and trying to get back to "normal". Although this book did have a lot of action - th ...more

3.5 stars. Didn't enjoy this one as much as Beg For Mercy. For me, it didn't have any of the strong emotion which really drew me into Beg For Mercy. I was so looking forward to Sean's book, and, unfortunately, I just didn't feel like this did him justice. Wasn't crazy about Krista, herself, nor Krista being paired with Sean. I did enjoy seeing Jack Brooks again, and I hope Tomas Ibarra will get a book of his own. Hopefully the third book will bring me back into the fold.

Hmmm. I liked this better than the first book. It was more mystery than the other one and the romance was also was better. It was nice reading them. Though it was weir seeing the two of them out of all the people fall in love. I won't go into a deeper review though.

Hide from Evil, Jami Alden’s second novel in the series called Trilogy, picks up five months from the end of Beg for Mercy. This story focuses squarely on Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Krista Slater and Sean Flynn.

Krista feels guilty for putting Sean on death row and now questions why it seems that everyone around her, including her boss Mark, is in a rush to toss the whole episode into the things better left behind box. She even goes as far as hiring her

Hide from Evil basically begins where Beg for Mercy ends. The story arc of Nate, the Seattle Slasher, is still ongoing, even though it’s not about Nate himself. We learn that the corruption sinks a lot deeper than anyone imagined. This time, however, we follow Sean, the sexy guy cleared of all murders, and Krista, the Deputy PA that had originally put him on death row.

I was really looking forward to this instalment. I liked Sean a lot from what I read of him in book one, and I couldn’t wait to g

Krista Slater was the prosecuting attorney who put Sean Flynn on death row for a crime he didn’t commit. Krista didn’t know that at the time, but that doesn’t change how Sean feels about her now that he’s free. The only thing Krista and Sean have in common is their undeniable attraction to each other. Krista’s desire to find the real killers takes her to Sean’s door. But danger follows her, and soon Sean and Krista are running for their lives. Can they find the killers before the killers find th ...more
I really liked how this one was connect to the first book. I was so happy that Sean was proven innocent and hoped that he would be able to get back his life. Of course things don't go as planned and Sean is pulled back into the drama that he so recently escaped.

I liked Krista's intentions, but didn't think they were realistic that she thought Sean would help her. I did like the lengths that Krista went to to get Sean to listen to her and force him to be in her company.

Solid second book in what is so far a great romantic suspense series. Alden definitely knows how to write some seriously messed up bad guys!

I would 100% recommend reading the previous book, Beg for Mercy, before reading this one - and in fact, if you have already read the first book but it was when it first came out (like I did), re-read it! The two books are very connected, and the plot is really just a continuation of the first - without too much time spent on explanations. I had to spend som

Oh my God, I looooved Sean. He was so damn gruff and sexy - I wanted to eat him. It cracked me up how he snapped at everything and everyone, and it touched my heart to see him struggle and then overcome his weaknesses. I could not get enough of him and Krista – one of my favorite couples. She was priceless. I loved how she suffered from diarrhea of the mouth at the worst times. It was such an endearing quality for her. They were hot together, but they were also very sweet.

The action and suspens
Way more suspense than romance. Not that it was bad, but I wanted more romance and development of a relationship between the H/h than I got in this story. I really couldn't identify a reason for them to be together, other than hot sex while on the run from some REALLY bad guys.

The suspense aspect of the story is great enough to keep me reading when the romance part just didn't do it for me.

Overall, I would recommend if you are looking for a good suspenseful book that is light on the romance and

“I wish I could tell you this was all just because I’m desperate and horny, making up for lost time after being locked up.” He slid his palm under the hem of her T-shirt, groaning at the feel of warm, smooth skin. “It would be so much easier if that was all this was.” He cupped a breast and flicked a nipple through the silk of her bra, loving the way it jumped to immediate attention against the pad of his thumb.
“There hasn’t been anyone,” he said between kisses. “I haven’t wanted anyone. I’ve been walking around like I’m dead inside and then you show up.” He couldn’t keep the edge out of his voice, angry at his own lack of control. Like she needed anything more on him, but he couldn’t keep himself from spilling his guts. “All of a sudden all I can think about is how you smell, how you might taste.” He sucked her tongue into his mouth for emphasis. “How soft your skin would feel.” He whipped her shirt over her head and slid his hands down the smooth line of her back, down the curve of her waist and hip.”
“He smelled like sweat and sex and Sean, a potent combination that made her want to hold him here inside her and never let him go.” 5 likes
