She loves what she does and she lives for it.  When she was forced to take a paid vacation, she flew to her destination with just only one thing on her mind.

This was such a fantastic romance read that's steamy, funny and a book all romance readers will enjoy. Lily is such a workaholic and a vacation trip she desperately does not want to take, ends with her having everything and more than she ever dreamed of having and wanting. I enjoyed all of the characters in this story, but Arie (Thorn) is definitely my favorite. He was not only swoon worthy, but he was sweet, thoughtful and caring from the very beginning and I enjoyed him a lot. Readers will abs ...more

Swoon Worthy Overload!!!! Make my heart & ovaries explode!!!

I am claiming Thorn! #mine

I devoured Hidden Paradise. I was in book funk and Amanda got me out of it. I love her work. She continues to surprise me with her books.

What can happen in a weeks worth of vacation? Well Lily is about to found out. She will be in for some surprises. Thorn can't get her out of his system, a week wasn't enough. He tried to find her but with no such luck. It's as fate had it's own plans for Lily and Thorn.

What a HOT and FUN read Hidden Paradise was. It's the perfect story to make you want your own sex God and a vacation. I devoured this book!

Thorn is the perfect mix of sweet and sexy and did I mention he will melt your heart? Yes, he will. Lilly is strong, and a workaholic, never taking an adventure until her boss forces her to so. Arriving angry she wasn't prepared to actually have fun...

You don't want to miss out on this SEXY read.

Man oh man did i love this book. I read it in one sitting i just couldn’t get enough.

Lily ever the workaholic is forced to go on a vacation by her boss, its during this vacation that she meets Thorn. Thorn is the type of guy every girl should have in her life, he encourages Lily to have fun and enjoy life. However neither of them could have prepared for what life was about to throw at them!

I adore Lily, she is strong, independant and caring, the type of girl you would want as your best friend.

ARC #BookSmacked review

A very sweet romance that all started as holiday fling. Lilly certainly got more than she bargained for when she got home. Without exchanging full names she was left in a right old pickle.

Fast forward a year and Thorn gets quite the shock.

A perfect story of a sweet romance. Thorn is quite the perfect man. 💜

This is a new author to me. Once I started I could not put the book down. Workaholic Lily doesn't like being forced to take a vacation. The love scenes between Lily/Thorn were hot. This was a short and straight to the point book with a HEA.

Lily and Thorn have a HOT week together but since they didn't exchange any info they cannot find one another after their time is up, but they both wished they would have. This was a story that grabbed your attention and kept it till the end. It was enjoyable and Thorn was just one of those guys you just want to grab and hold on to.

Being forced to travel isn’t the end of the world for travel blogger Lily; what IS the worst is that her boss is forcing her to take a vacation. Meaning no work for an entire week. Resigned to the fact that she will just have to find a work around for the week she’s out of the country, she heads to the beautiful Hidden Paradise. Once there she meets Thorn and they quickly become inseparable. They have such a strong connection to each other, right from the start; but what happens when the week en ...more

A.M. Guilliams is one of my top go to addictions, as there's nothing that she's written that I haven't absolutely LOVED, and Hidden Paradise is no exception. Once again, her brilliant writing style is showcased perfectly in her newest emotional, and awesome story that I couldn't get enough! Lilly is a true workaholic, who is also a very independent woman married to her job. When she's forced to go on a vacation, she never thought she would have such a hot fling with a man.

This was such a wonderful romance story full of steamy moments, funny ones and definitely had all the feels you could ask for!

I wasn't really sure when I started reading why Lily, a traveling workaholic, would be forced to go on a vacation alone in order to slow her down, but really it worked for this story. When she meets Thorn, he is exactly what the doctor ordered to help her unwind. When their time together is up, they part ways without even exchanging full names. Now, 1 year later Lily has

When I started Hidden Paradise, I wasn't sure what to expect and for a little bit there I honestly thought it was going to be sex scene after sex scene. But boy, was I surprised. It turned out to be a story so different from anything I'd read before and I ended up loving it. I found it refreshing and just an enjoyable read.

But determined to get this vacation over, she lands in paradise, you know the place where you have fish swimming under your room, how freaking cool. Lily never thought that these seven days would change her life, but from the moment she meets Thorn, that's just what happens.

Hidden Paradise was my first read by A.M. Guilliams and I absolutely loved it!! It was fun and sexy and hot! Thorn was perfection! I loved him and his tender loving care towards Lily. Very swoon worthy!! Lily was a strong, independent woman who changed her life for the better. I loved how she opened up to Thorn and the relationship they built. Hidden Paradise had a great story line and we'll developed characters! Definitely fun and refreshing!!

This is a wonderful story about Lily, a workaholic, who is forced to take a vacation. Her boss is so serious about her taking time off that he puts her on a plane to an unknown place and without access to work computers. The first day, she meets Thorn. They agree to only use first names for the 7 days they are there. Thorn is very thoughtful and sweet, not to mention that he's very handsome. Lily has come to care for him very much but decides that it wouldn't work out between them so she leaves ...more
