Jamie has worked hard to escape from a traumatic past, and is now doing a job she loves and has the support of friends she cares about. She isn't about to open her heart to anyone, but she can't deny her growing attraction to the brother of her close friend, and co-worker, Mitch. Just as she is reevaluating her ability to let someone in again, a threat from her past makes it clear that will not be possible for her.

Even though I got irritated with Jamie and her choices at times, there was no

I didn't think would be good.

It wasn't good....

If you like romance, learning from the past and allowing yourself to heal, and strong witty heroes and heroines, check this out! I can't wait for Part 2! (There is a cliffhanger). ;-;

Holy Cliffhanger Batman! And the next book won't be out until November?!!?!?!?!?! This book sets up a great suspense story. You know something will happen eventually, but you, like Jamie, are on edge waiting for it. The tension created is great. Simultaneously you are finding out what happened in the past, seeing Jamie develop feelings for Mitch, and deal with her stalker. Its very well written and once you start, you won't stop reading. Then, when you get to the end, you will

*I received a free copy from the author for my honest opinion*

My honest opinion is that I loved it! I couldn't put the book down! I read the book almost in one day! I loved the story line, the writing, and the characters. I enjoyed the dialogue and the friendships in the book. And, of course, even though Mitch was a perv sometimes, I loved him.

I can't wait to read more!!!

It is when I read books like this that I remember why I like Romantic Suspense so much. I also wonder why I don't read it more often. Brooke did an excellent job in melding the mystery and suspense with ultra thick and hot sexual tension. Wow...that prologue really captured my attention. From the first couple of pages of this book I was hooked, wanting to know what would come from what transpired in those first couple of pages. As with any good romantic suspense, I was intrigued and had a need ...more

Hide is part one in The Black Letter Series.
It is a spin off from The Conklin's Trilogy, but can be read as a stand alone.

I gave this book 5 stars.

This is Mitch and Jamie's story.

This book was explosive! It has everything you would want in a story. Suspense, humor, love, and HOT steamy sex scenes. From page one of this book I was hooked and couldn't stop turning the pages. I knew these characters from the previous series, but Brooke made them so fresh and new that even if you haven't read

**Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review**

This book was so freaking intense and has left me breathless. People get hurt, lives are threatened, it's like a roller coaster . I mean, this book has left me baffled. This book's intensity took me to a whole new level when it comes to reading this genre. I just found myself hooked from beginning to end and these types of books are the best because you know that they are just that good.

Mitch is the youngest Conklin brother. He is arrogant,

This is my first book to read by Brooke Page and let me just say I’m a fan for life! I love your writing style and your characters. I was able to connect with each of them and I’m hanging on by a thread here for the next book!

What can I say about Hide? Holy rollercoaster of emotions, Batman! One minute you're frustrated, the next you're teary, and then the next your pulse is racing. Hide will make you want to throw your Kindle, pick it up, and then try to crawl inside to soothe the characters.

Jamie's past is heart-wrenching. I enjoyed the past/present flip of the chapters; never once was I lost or confused (which sometimes happens when authors play with time). Since I knew Mitch was Jamie's love interest, I couldn't

Mitch and Jamie in part one of Hide: The Black Letter Series is intense! Jumping into this book for me was a little hard to follow at first. The story follows Jamie as she works for Nathan Conklin, and his successful construction company. We get flash backs into Jamie's past as a teenager growing up and her first love, Rod. Throughout the book we get to see that like most first loves, this one won't last either. Jamie is deceived and manipulated by him. Seven years after getting away from him, ...more

HIDE (The Black Letter Series Part One) by Brooke Page
Review done by Cassandra Brooker for Cassandra’s Reviews
10 stars!

Black letters start arriving for Jaime, one sentence written in white in perfect script. It shakes her to her core because it brings up bad memories. How do you fight off someone who is like a ghost sending black letters to you no matter how they get them to you?

This is a book that grips you from the start with Jaime who is confident and has a great job with her best friend

And now I'm over here all hot for construction man. I mean, you figure there's always more to the story when it comes from you, but this... This!?!? I didn't expect this.

And Jamie. Jay Jay Jay. I don't know how. What. Just. Yeah. I love her relationship with Nathan. It was like the epitome of the saying "there's no safer place for a

Oh how I have missed my Conklin boys. Yes, I will admit while everyone thought that Mitch was a complete imbecile in the other books, I always had a soft spot in my heart for him and after reading his and Jamie’s story I am even more smitten with the adorably, sexy talking, construction chap. I mean come on ladies, what woman doesn’t love a man that knows how to use his hands? ;) All adorableness and drooling aside, I never had any doubts about Brooke’s writing but I am still blown away at how ...more

I loved Conklin's Trilogy, this however is NOT that. This is way better! I haven't read a book this good in a long time. The banter between Jamie and Mitch was great, that's one of the things I like best in books. The sexual tension was through the roof, I was begging Jamie for Mitch! Mitch is more than what meets the eye, and I was cheering for him the whole time. There's suspense, laughter, sadness, and a whole lot of love! HIDE takes you from one emotion to the next in just a few sentences. I ...more

HIDE is Jamie's book. We first met Jamie in The Conklin's Trilogy, she is Becca's best friend. You do not have to read those books first to understand what is going on in this one. If you haven't, I would recommend reading that trilogy sometime in the near future. It is a great one!

Jamie's job transfers her to Miami where she begins working with Mitch Conklin. Mitch doesn't hide the fact that he's in to Jamie. Jamie is trying to deny the fact that she is attracted to Mitch.

Jamie and Mitch. You just knew reading the Conklin Trilogy the there was going to be something explosive between these two and WOW talk about now just crazy chemestry (even when Jamie is trying to deny it) but the story also takes you on a journey with so many twists and turns you never know what will happen next!

Jamie is strong and assertive on the outside, but inside she has been hiding for so long it's hard to let go of certain things.

Mitch is cocky and arrogant like all the Conklin guys, but

At a young age, Jamie found herself in an abusive relationship. Now she fiercely guards her heart and has an overwhelming need to protect the men in her life from a secret from her past.

Mitch Conklin and his sexy as hell Conklin smirk, is used to getting what he wants, and what he wants is Jamie.

I thought the Conklin Trilogy was amazing, but Brooke totally outdid herself with Hide. Oh WOW! I was hooked from page one, and read it all in a matter of hours. Jamie's hurt made me hurt. She deserves good after all that's happened to her. Mitch, well, he's Mitch, and extremely domineering. I loved the relationship they had, even if she didn't want to admit her feelings, he knew all along how she felt. I am ready for Seek, like right now. Brooke has amazing talent, if her first three books ...more

This is the first book I have read from Brooke Page, but it won't be my last. I had not read the Conklin trilogy, but that wasn't a problem for understanding and enjoying this story. It is well written with likeable characters and has a good pace. Jamie is being stalked and we get flasbacks about the who and why, but it not all revealed. It creates a lot of suspense. Looking for ward to reading the next book

No pun intended, but I am OBSESSED with this book. I have found my new book boyfriend. Mitch is everything. Anywhooo, this story had my attention and had me hooked on the very first page. It is easy to fall in love with the characters and the author really makes you wonder. What is Jay hiding? Who did she lose? What has happened in her past? This book is the perfect ratio of romance, to thriller, to mystery. I can not wait to start reading the second book to this series.

Omg, this book had me on the edge of my seat from the very first word up until the last. I instantly purchased the first 3 book series, Clonkin's Blueprint's (also very highly recommended),in which we were first introduced to all of these amazing characters. Yes, Hide leaves you with such a scary cliffhanger but this is still a book that I not only highly recommend but it's also one that I am very impatiently waiting to find out how the rest of the story will go.
