This book is an interesting mix between an action/adventure, almost a thriller, and a very hot m/m romance. Neither one nor the other completely, it cleverly combines the elements of both genres into an interesting new whole. Personally, I really liked the fact it didn’t get too gritty – that wasn’t what I expected when I picked it up and I am glad the promise made in the blurb was kept. ‘Nowhere to Hide’ contained just enough tension and a few interesting twists to keep me interested, and more...more
Hot and fast-paced book!
Loved Mark and Jack together, all the action/adventure twists and turns and the sweet HEA :) I for one liked that the story wasn't too dark or gritty, since I'm not much of angst lover. Light and enjoyable read!

Nowhere to Hide by JP Bowie is a good mix between an action story and a steamy romance. Mark Hamilton is a doctor working in a refugee camp, stationed in Darfur, with Doctors Who Care International. Some special ops soldiers make an emergency stop to treat one of their men and this is where he meets Sergeant Major Jack 'Boomer' Caruthers. It is instant attraction between the two. After a passionate evening together, they know they what more evenings together. Because this is Darfur, it is a very...more
I enjoyed reading about Mark, a young physician stationed in Darfur, Sudan with Doctors Who Care, and Jack, a Sergeant Major with the Australian Special Ops serving on the UN peacekeeping task force. I thought they were very hot together and the sparks flew from the very beginning. The story also brought home the dangers for people living and working in such an unstable and volatile part of the world, and the humanitarian workers there are to be commended for their bravery and selflessness. Whil...more

Fans of J.P. Bowie will enjoy this sexy action book. Dr. Mark Hamilton is working at a refugee clinic in Darfur, Tunisia. Once a rich, party boy in California, Mark had to prove himself as a real man and a capable doctor. Happily helping those in need, Mark was finally at peace until Sergeant Major Jack Caruthers turns his world upside down. Jack is part of the Australian arm of the U.N. Peace Keeping Force and blows in with a wounded comrade who needs medical attention. Mark and Jack go at it...more
A good read on the whole but a few things kept it from rating higher for me:
1. Being an Australian myself, I found the Australian-isms so contrived it was uncomfortable - eg., most of us don't call Kangaroos Boomers - much more likely to just shorten it to roo,
2. Mark was almost TSTL for an intelligent guy - (by definition, doctors have to be fairly smart)
3. The instant bonding/love between various characters was annoyingly blatant.

The plot was quite good but the end product wasn't what it coul...more

This was not as intense as I thought it was going to be. Mark was kidnapped and sold into slavery in a Darfur. Darfur is one of the dangerous and bloodiest regions. So I expected more grit which it didn't have and caused this to fall flat for me. The Villains have some really campy lines which I would have appreciated more if this was anywhere near dark.

The chemistry between Mark and hunky, Aussie Jack was smoking. Everything about Jack was right for me and where most of my enjoyment came from.
Soldiers, doctors, action, adventure, sexiness! All things that I love in a story. Well, let me tell just how thoroughly this book has cured me of that love. I could enumerate all the things I didn't like/found preposterous/was offended by, but that list would likely be longer than the actual book. Which is only about 150 pages long. Suffice it to say that this book was really hard to take any kind of seriously.
I liked this one.... A lot. The only flaw to my mind was that the men fell in love too fast. Otherwise, this is a great story, adventure, suspense, and judicially seasoned with sex. The characters are likable and believable, and the plot works, although Mark being 27 pushes the sex slave market a bit. I did wonder when Mark completely left his profession since he was so dedicated to it in Darfur.
The story was as promised from the review, full of action, great dialogues and with a plot which is really well written.
The story kept my attention till the last page and it's in my eyes awesome read. All characters, were attractive and interesting. I liked both main characters Mark and Jack. Simple stated worth the money and reading time.
The blurb for this book promised action, adventure and man love and it delivered big time! Both the main characters, Mark and Jack are guys I'd love to know, and the author does a great job of mixing the romance with the in your face action and danger they both face. Terrific!
I enjoy most of Bowie's books, but Nowhere to Hide left me flat. I think the plot need some work.
I give Nowhere to Hide three stars.

J.P. Bowie was born and raised in Aberdeen, Scotland. He wrote his first (unpublished) novel – a science fiction tale of brawny men and brawnier women that made him a little suspect in the eyes of his family for a while.

Leaving home at age eighteen for the bright lights of London, he found himself in the midst of a “diverse and creative crowd” that eventually led him to the performing arts. For th...more
