“I wasn’t ready for this. Hannah deserved a man who was whole, not a broken shell. But I couldn’t resist her. Couldn’t resist this. It felt too good. And would that be so bad? To have something that felt good for once?”

Leo Miles came home broken—wounded and scarred. It’s been five years, and he hasn’t left his family’s land. Not once. It’s not much of a life, but the way h

Hidden Miles is book four in the Miles Family series by Claire Kingsley. If you have read any of the books in this series and gotten to know the Miles siblings, then just like me, you’ve been waiting for Leo’s story. Claire was right in saving Leo’s story for last. I believe that Leo is the most unforgettable. Well, he might be neck and neck with Cooper, because, well, Cooper.

It’s been five years since Leo returned home. Since he was severely burned in an explosion while serving overseas. Leo ca

4.25 hottest brotherhood, entertaining, heartwarming stars. This is my first Claire Kingsley and normally first Miles brothers book. I should have started chronologically but when I read the stories of brothers, Leo intrigued me so much so I’m hooked by this book. And I think I made the right choice because Leo is isolated, withdrawn, tormented man but he is also the most emotional, bravest, smartest, strongest, toughest brother and he is the anchor of the family!
When I read first pages, I was a
I’ve been putting off writing this review as I hate to be a naysayer, but Hidden Miles just did not do it for me.

Leo is the tortured ex-military guy with horrific burns and scars as well as PTSD. Turns out the heroine has been his best bud as they play online games never having met each other in real life. She’s currently living with a police man that has exhibited domineering to abusive tendencies.

Leo sees her, or to be more accurate hears her at a wedding at the vineyard and falls hard for her

I ended this story with tears in my eyes, not because it was sad; on the contrary this is an emotional involving journey of a man who has gone into a downward spiral and back to real life without having the time to take a calming breath. Although struggling with his demons , Leo tried to live a normal life but his wounds were too deep but out of nowhere Hannah made her appearance. Her virtual calming presence gave Leo hope and when unexpectedly she turns up at his family’s winery just then he’ll ...more

Leo Miles is my kyptonite. A wounded vet isolating himself because he doesn't feel worthy of love. SIGN ME UP! Boy was he worth the wait. I loved the fact that Hannah and Leo had years of friendship, although they haven't met in person. When they do......fireworks. With the help of Hannah and the truly fantastic Miles clan (Cooper was especially amazing), Leo's true personality overrides any walls that he may have built around himself. His and Hannah's road to HEA was not a smooth one, but that ...more

If you are like me you have been waiting for Leo's story since book one of the Miles Family Series. Along the way we have received glimpses of Leo...The brother. The son. The ex-soldier who suffers from extreme PTSD-induced anxiety. The beautiful, broken, scarred man who hides himself away from the world and submerges himself in the safety of his families vineyard. The man who feels like he is less than; broken, disfigured and not worthy of love. He finds solace in the world of on-line gaming. I ...more

DNF 53% and that's after I skipped a bunch to get to the sex scene. No I am not a sex scene addict. It's just
1) the writing is excruciatingly boring
2) the characters aren't compelling
3) the plot is BORING
4) there's no chemistry really

So what's left but the sex scene? And even there, without all the rest of it, who cares.

I do not understand AT ALL where all the 5 stars came from.

Oh Leo Miles, how I have wanted for your story from the moment I met you in Broken Miles. I was pretty much obsessed with this audiobook right from the start and I couldn't wait to finally find out more about the reclusive Miles brother. This was an emotional story that addressed some very serious topics, but I felt that Claire Kingsley balanced it all very well with humor and heart. This is the 4th book in the Miles family series

Gah, this book was everything and it was SO worth the wait! I've been wanting Leo's book since we first meet him in Broken Miles (though, EVERYONE has been lol) and this books ties so much up from the others, and we get to dive into the mysterious Miles brother.

We already knew Leo was broken. He was hiding from the world, and didn't know how to come out of his shell. Enter Hannah. God bless this woman. She was everything he never knew he needed, and everything he thought he didn't deserve. From

This book was so worth the wait.

I loved when Roland and Zoe got their second chance romance.
I cheered when Bryncess and Chance got their HEA.
I swooned with each ridiculous, yet charming stunt Cooper pulled to sweep Amelia off her feet.
But Leo? Leo Miles was the one I was waiting for. He was the isolated and lonely hero whose disfigured flesh only hinted at the pain and scarring on the inside. And he was the one who deserved absolution and adoration the most.

Besides his family, the only person

This was basically what I had hoped for from the blurb, so no complaints. It's a little unrealistic but a lot romantic. It could have used some more of them working on their own issues (and was there a reason he couldn't get any reconstructive surgery?) Honestly, I think it could have been twice as long and I would have liked it even more.

I have been waiting and waiting for this book to release and it met every one of my expectations and beyond. Claire is a masterful writer who pulls you into her stories and makes you feel every emotion. Although it can be read as a stand-alone, Hidden Miles is book 4 and I do recommend that you start from the beginning and read them all. This series is about the Miles family who owns Salishan Cellars Winery in beautiful central Washington.

Each sibling is featured in their own unique story: Brok

Leo. We have seen of him throughout our journey with the Miles family. This scarred man has intrigued us. We have all been waiting anxiously to know his secrets and see into the shadows were Leo hides. (Because you know us romance readers, we can’t resist a broken man) And now Leo’s story is here. And what a story it is.

This book was everything that we needed from Leo -and Hannah was an amazing addition to this awesome family.

Let’s start with the gaming- I get that this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, and I don’t think you need to enjoy gaming or even care about it one way or another to love this book, but it added an extra level of enjoyment for me because gaming is BIG in my family. The references and escapism we

I cannot put into words how much this book touched my heart! I cannot put my finger on just one thing, it seemed to be the whole book, from start to finish!

Leo is an injured ex-soldier, he lives in a cottage on his family winery and rarely leaves his house. He has not stepped foot past the property boundaries since coming back broken and scarred!

Hannah is in a relationship that she doesn’t want to be in but can’t seem to get out of, she is scared and wants to move on, but how?

LEO! LEO! LEO! He was a mystery character throughout this series that I’ve wanted more and more from throughout the series and now that I’ve read his story, I still want more. That, in and of itself, should tell you how good this book really was.
Leo, is an injured Vet, who suffers from agoraphobia and PTSD. It is heartbreaking to read about this man, who I can clearly visualize in my imagination thanks to Claire’s words of description and I generally have a vague picture of book characters and

I have been following Claire Kingsley's Miles Family Series since the beginning. . . and while I'm absolutely crazy about this family, it was the middle brother, Leo who captured my interest.

I've always been drawn to the tortured, broken hero-one who carries his scars both inside and out--one who also possesses a beautiful and kind spirit. But no matter what demons he faces, he will fight to protect his family and everyone he cares about with the heart of a lion. So, I guess it goes without sayi

Leo’s story was everything I hoped for and more. It was possibly my most anticipated read this year so far and it didn’t disappoint.

I had very high expectations for Leo’s forever girl. Having gotten to know a little about him in the first 3 books in the Miles Family series I knew it would have to be someone special for our wounded hero to let his guard down.

Leo & Hannah’s story was a beautiful tale of fate, love & triumphs over inner demons. Hannah is definitely Leo’s match. Their chemistry wa

I love this series and just like other fans I have been waiting for Leo's story. Well, I can definitely say it was worth the wait. Claire Kingsley really delivered with this one. Leo and Hannah's story is a beautiful story about love, pain, grief, survival and how the power of love can heal. Their journey was not easy and had a lot of obstacles but both Leo and Hannah are survivors and it was an absolute pleasure to take this journey with them.

I've enjoyed this series a lot. Not one book hoopty in the bunch!

This is a nice penultimate(*) book in the series that sees the final Miles brother, Leo -- the recluse, agoraphobic, Iraq war vet, hacker -- get his HEA. Yeah, I thought the meet up between Leo and Hannah was a leetle bit implausible, but it got Leo where he needed to go. It was a good romance, a little more serious in tone than the others. But Cooper -- big, goofy Cooper and his 'human jumper cable' hugs -- was still there to lig

Holy. Shit. This. Book.
I knew Leo’s part in the Miles Family Series was gonna be good, but damn. This is some next level shit. It’s like CK evolved into a higher form to write this. Leo’s story is so emotionally deep, if you don’t feel his pain and frustration with himself right along with him you are clearly some kind of robot. Hannah’s side of things is just a powerful. Read this book. Read the whole series. Do it.
If I thought I wanted Coop's story, it was nothing compared to how much I wanted to see the quiet, silent, scarred Leo find love.

I really wanted to see how he would be brought out of his shell, but more than that, I needed to know WHO could do it.

And now I have the answers to both of those questions.

I am so happy and full of love for this couple. You'll love them too. Every Miles member deserves an HEA and our broody Leo finally has his.

Its no secret that Claire Kingsley is one of my favorite authors. And I have loved every book in the Miles Family series. But I was REALLY anticipating Leo’s story the most. What made him tick? We knew he was an injured war vet, but what had happened? Would he ever leave the family’s winery?

Outside of his family, the only person Leo socializes with is his online gaming buddy, Gigz. Needless to say, he’s shocked when he hears her voice at a wedding reception being held at the family winery. He’s
