Hidden Agendas

This was a fun and quick read short story. I enjoyed it and would like to read Tayler's story also. I do wish it would have been longer but that is because I was really getting into it. I finished it without putting it down so I could find out what happened. I was gifted this story from a friend who thought I'd enjoy it and she was right.

A new author! A new book! Romance and suspense! My kind of story! It was a fast paced story, but clearly had a great foundation with characters and how everything played into each other. I loved the whole suspense in this story and almost wish it could have been more but it definitely was a great read. I found myself laughing out loud with Ava because her character was a bit of a spit fire with some serious stubbornness. I loved her character.

Andrea Bills definitely has a passion for writing an

Hidden love

Ava starts a new job that she immediately thinks she needs to quit. When her eyes land on her boss, she definitely needs to quit. He is hotter than hot and also meaner than Oscar the Grouch. She becomes involved in a matter that has her fearful for her life. She is extremely independent and I liked that about her. She was very relatable for her age and what her goals were for life. When her boss, Brian, overwhelms her, she isn't sure what to make of it all.

For a First Book.. this deserves Five Stars.. it’s definitely a Romance Suspense..

The electrical chemistry between Brian and Ava can light up NYC! The Twists and Turns that Andrea created was unexpected and not a scene was predictable.

It’s a rare find for me to fall in love with the female character and even harder to insta love them, but Ava is such a relatable character that I was drawn to her from the very beginning. She is awkward and funny as hell! She wears her emotions and not afraid to

What Hidden Agendas lacks in length it makes up for in plot. The action is fast paced and there is never a dull moment. Brian is a successful business man in Louisiana and Ava is hired on as his personal assistant. Working a desk job in his construction company ends up being a much more dangerous situation than Ava could have ever imagined. Being the controlling man that he is, Brian quickly sets out to shelter Ava and control what she does, all with her protection ultimately in mind. Brian was ...more

SaSS 2017, I met Andrea, she is a new member of the Iamabookhoader family, you know Helene Cuji's squad! I did not have the opportunity to get to know her then. However, recently she reached out and reintroduced herself, explained her new book and I was hooked, purchased it. Today, I read the book, for a new author it's well written and flows so smoothly. Andrea gives depth to her characters, and mystery build up was good. The plot is not overly twisty but yet not simple either; it was balanced. ...more

My first romantic suspense, and I'm so glad it was! I didn't know what I was getting into, but once I was in, I didn't want to put it down. I was thrilled by the unexpected romance and mystery!! This book is definitely a must read!

Good God! So bloody cliché. I've read a lot of crap (who hasn't) but this one tops them all. Her new boss insists she stay at his home when her home is broken into and if she doesn't get in the car she'll get a spanking. That's when I called it quits and actually demanded a refund. Give me a fucking break! ...more

Good fast paced book!

This book was extremely good! It was fast paced though! Ava and Brian were good characters and got together. I would have liked it to be a little longer!

Hidden Agenda intrigued me from the beginning as it spun a web of mystery and suspense in this action packed adventure.
Ava was recently hired as a personal assistant to the CEO of a well established construction company. With her foot in the door, all she had to do is learn the ins and outs of the business. Kimberly was glad to have some of the workload taken off her hands.
Brian wasn't your typical CEO. Dressed in tight dirty jeans, a shirt that clung to those muscled biceps and abs with a too

Great, Quick Read!

I enjoyed this novella very much. Brian was absolutely swoon-worthy. #ILoveAlphaMen Ava was the perfect blend of spunky and vulnerable. Together, they were a great couple to read about. The story was very enjoyable. It could have used one more time with a proofreader as there were a few minor errors that my OCD brain wouldn't let me bypass.
Overall, a great read.

I enjoyed this book, hot alpha and sassy heroine with intrigue and suspense. I felt the attraction/love relationship developed way too fast and a bit unrealistically. I would've loved to see the attraction build rather than bam! I still really enjoyed it and would love to read more books from the author. ...more

This story was short. less than 100 pages. It is a very quck read. I liked tjat it was a quick read.

I was not a fan of the stpry. If you like stories of dominating and cotrolling men, then this is a story for you. Dominating men are not my cup of tea, so i did not enjoy it much

The "thrilling" part of the story is lacking and I feel that the autbor could have done a lot more with that part of the story instead of trying to write such lame characters.

All in all, I wasn't impressed.

Holy Macaroni!

Where do I start with this book? It has hot alpha hottie, it has suspense, and it has hotter than hades chemistry. I loved the banter between Brian and Ava. It keeps the sexual tension going. You can just feel the electric charge between the two as their story unfolds. The plot was believed and the twist was out of nowhere, I didn't even see it coming. I will definitely be recommending this book to friends and waiting not so patiently for Andrea's next release.

I absolutely enjoyed this book! Andrea created the perfect cocktail of sexy flirty fun and suspense.

This is NOT your typical office romance. It's a web of mystery with two fun and interesting main characters.

Andrea kept my on the edge of myself with the will of won't they attraction if the main characters and mysterious twists!

I absolutely love a book with sexual tension, suspense and even some action! I don’t know if I could have kept my hands off Brian as long as Ava did? He sounds like someone I would jump all over! This one hit all the marks for me. I can’t wait to read the next book!

I intended to read just a few pages of this book before going to sleep 2hours later I was still reading I just couldn't put it down. I loved the characters in the book and really brought in to them straight away and the twists were great. Highly recommended 😀

Mayhem and romance are my kind of books. You could almost feel the sparks when David and Ava met..Then came the drama came and it became to much to deny. Can't wait to see what's next.

This is my first read by this author, she has gained a new fan. I really enjoyed this story! The characters were fantastic and it was a great plot. The action and mystery added to the growing romance between Ava and Brian made this a real page turner. The story is well written and pulled me in from beginning to end.
