Ladies, forgive me but I have to ask...what's with all the five star reviews? Right, right, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. My mistake. So here's my opinion on “Hiding Out”...

…First off, I cannot believe I actually read this entire novel. Well, that's not entirely true. I started skimming thru half-way in just to end my misery.

Secondly, yes, this is a romantic story – but it’s a pathetic, sappy, sickly-sweet, mushy, gushy, mindless, corny, cheesy, romantic story. (I love my Thesaurus

have had the pleasure of reviewing Hiding Out by Nicole Andrews Moore. I can say a few things about Nicole. One she is awesome! And two her books are so good and so clean I rarely ever find a grammar issue or anything out of place. The flow and style of her writing grabs your attention from the first page to the last line of the book. That is exactly the way I felt with Hiding Out.

What do you do when the unthinkable happen to you and you are alone with no family and nobody you can trust? You Ru

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 ...more

Haley- When we first meet Haley she is very timid, shy, jumpy, and just plain scared. She’s a loner and has no family. Any abrupt noise sets her off and she shakes. Her fiancé’s best friend has raped her and beat her to a pulp on New Year’s Eve. In the aftermath she picked the most dangerous city in the world to run to. New York City. She hides her body with big clothes, has dyed her hair, and has basically hidden her heart from anyone who got too close. She doesn’t want to be found so she uses ...more

I was gifted this book from the publisher (thank you) in exchange for a honest review.

Hiding Out by Nicole Andrews Moore, is a book about facing your fears and turning your life around. What do you do when you have hit rock bottom and you have no where else to turn? When your a loner, without a family and you have a dark secret, I know what I would do, I would do the same thing Haley did, run! Get the heck out of Dodge, as they day.

Hiding Out

I wanted a sweet love story and this is what I got.

Poor Haley, was in New York hiding from her past. With this she puts up her defenses so no one can get in which will keep her safe.

For Samuel, things have been stressful but woman have never been a problem well until...Haley. He can't figure her out but for some reason wants to cherish and protect her. His instincts aren't wrong.

This is a journey about healing, hope and love. Sam and Haley are

This book opened with a phone call that led me to believe that I had missed something! Because I was too lazy to head back to Amazon to see if I'd missed a previous book or something, I decided to just go ahead and read it. Boy am I glad I did.

Nicole, Haley's experience totally shattered me. I could feel her pain, both physical and emotional. I swear I jumped in my seat every time a door slammed or someone yelled. I am so thankful that Haley had Ellen to help her in the beginning. As for Sam, I

I really enjoyed this book. It took me on an emotional roller coaster, which I like when reading books. Without giving too much away, the content is intense and the author does a fantastic job addressing it. The ending was written very well and I am glad to see the story will be continued. The only reason I didn't give this book a 5-star review is because I wish it had been longer. At only 156 pages it was a really quick read. Other than that, the only other thing is the POV changes (which is ...more

Another great love story from Nicole Andrews Moore ! A good book to me is one that keeps me engaged and not wanting to put it down. Hiding Out is just that book. I read it in one day! Even after reading it the characters stayed with me for several days. I am excitedly awaiting the return of Sam, Haley and Adam!
I like the the concept of the series and I can't wait for it to continue.
Hiding out is definitely worth a read.

It just keeps getting better. If you enjoy HEA stand alone romance this is a great one. Add it to your TBR. Sam & Haley are perfect for each other but let me just say, I would love to get to know Adam just as much. I think this book is her best book yet. Coming Soon

I'm not really sure what I expected from Hiding Out other than the wonderful writing style of Nicole Andrews Moore, but I got so much more than I bargained for with this one. I had seen other authors who I love raving about the book, but I wanted to see for myself what the excitement was about. Heart-pounding angst with a want need for resolution for a few of the characters and a slow progression to romance are what I got in my reading of Hiding Out. I have fallen completely in love wit

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my voluntary and honest review.

I have always enjoyed reading Emma Nichols' books, and Hiding Out is no exception. Having been a facilitator of support groups, I found Haley's reactions to the circumstances she found herself in to be in line with the experience of other women. What was surprising though, was Sam's reaction towards her and need to be her white knight. Sam was so caught up in his business and his resentment towar

This book started out so well that I had high hopes for it, but it began to fall flat for me about half-way through. I was infuriated with the characters at times, but that didn't bother me. I like a book that stirs emotions. My problem is that doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is called crazy and after awhile it felt like page fillers to me. The scene at the end with the villain was a bit ridiculous, and the ending as a whole felt rushed. This story had the ...more

They are not allowed as he made up the policy. The problem is he can't stop thinking about his new personal assistant who he is fascinating with.

It takes a lot to hold on to something you believe to be precious and then to have someone you trusted to rip it away instantly against your will, is tragic and all consuming. It changes people. Haley has experienced this and has been Hiding Out in New York, where she met Sam. He has some attraction to her be she jumps everyime he is around. He sets out thinking he needs to know more about her but little does he know her past is just as dangerous now as it was before. They fight through

This book is an emotional rollercoaster ride. The author wrote this book so well I almost felt like I was there. You want to cry when she cries and laugh when laughs because you are pulled so deeply into this story. I loved the romance between Sam & Hayley. I don't want to give too much of the story away so I will just say that this book is definitely worth the read.

This is a wonderful story. Haley is a strong character in order to go through what she did and survive and thrive. Many women would not. Sam is a great character with his show of support for her and she truly makes him a better man. Chase is just despicable through and through. I love Adam and it would be great for him and Jake Ryan to both get their own books. They are both interesting enough to carry a full book. This is an excellent story about survival after tragedy, finding real love and ...more

When we have been wounded and hurt we run away from what is causing the pain. We use band aides to cover the wounds. Band-aides are temporary because we all know if you leave that Band-Aid on, it exacerbates the wound. Bacteria festers, the wound infected. Fear of taking the band-aide off or the fear of the damage, actually causes more damage. Sometimes we have to be pushed to take the Band-Aid off ourselves. Sometimes we need someone's help.

I detest not being able to finish a book because I almost feel like a failure. I feel like it’s my fault. I love books with a passion so not liking one does not sit well in my brain. But I have to be honest…I cannot help my feelings or opinions...they are what they are.

Hiding Out by Nicole Andrews Moore

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.

Haley Iverson is a temp seceraty at Samuel Davenport's Advertising Agency. Haley is a quiet and shy person who hides herself in frumpy clothing and a bad dye job. Her boss, Sam, sees through her act and is intent on finding out what is really going on with Haley. Hiding Out has a great premise, it wasn't the typical story that I've been seeing lately. It kept me wondering what was going on with Haley and if she would be able to stay safe.

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
