    Nick Carlisle is living in Hawaii, going to college, surfing, and hanging out with his best friend Gabe Thompson since his discharge from Army. Nick really isn't living life just hiding from it especially what happened in Afghanistan. Nick and Gabe head to The Hilo Bar and Grill(The Grill) for drinks and good food. When Nick spies a vision of perfection with blonde dreadlocks and golden tan. Lyndsey Anderson is hiding from her past and hopes to keep it that way. Leesa and Raoul, owners of The Grill, treat Lyndsey like a daughter. Leesa is always giving advice on love and life~Live life don't waste it. Will Lyndsey take chance? Can Nick move on? Will either Nick or Lyndsey admit their attraction? Or will both their pasts haunt them? Your answers await you in Hidden.




    After reading Camouflaged, I was deeply curious about Nick's story. Curiosity is definitely satisfied. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder(PTSD) is all to common in today's society especially in our military men and women. Nick and Lyndsey are such beautiful and wonderful characters that deserve fair shake at life in more ways than one. I'm definitely glad to have read this book.

    I received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.
    I loved this book! It was so well written and the characters were perfect. This was such an emotional book to read but there was a wonderful love story throughout!
    The stories behind both Nick and Lindsey were heart wrenching. Even with all the heartache they've had in their past, though, they were able to love each other.
    I will definitely be reading the next book. It will be interesting to see what happens to the seemingly easy going Gabe.

    My Rating: 3.5

    GOOD: The characteristics of a 3 heart book include: interesting characters, a decent storyline, and unique story elements; there was something about the story that I didn’t completely connect with; the book is a solid read. I would recommend it to a friend.

    This book was provided by the author for an honest review.

    My Thoughts:
    Hidden was about Lyndsey Anderson and her journey to find healing for her mind, acceptance of her past, and love in her future.

    Lyndsey Anderson was existing, not living, in one of the most scenic places on the planet, beautiful Hawaii. She works and goes to school...rinse and repeat. She has no friends and shuns all romantic entanglements because of her dark and troubled past. The reader doesn't find out about Lyndsey's past until her home is broken into and her past invades upon her present. But, before that happens, Lyndsey meets the handsome and equally troubled Nick Carlisle. Nick has returned from Afghanistan on the heels of the death of the woman he loved. He goes to therapy to try to recover from the crushing loss but he still cannot get over feeling as he is dangerous to everyone because he caused her death. When Nick and Lyndsey meet the attraction is palpable but both keep a discreet barrier between them. Well, mostly it's Lyndsey but Nick does not take no for an answer. He makes it his business to be where Lyndsey is and the restaurant where she works becomes his second home. Nick and Lyndsey settle into a comfortable friendship which slowly grows into more and Nick's steady presence whittle away at Lyndsey's resistance.

    I enjoyed the easy progression of Lyndsey and Nick's relationship. Although there was a strong physical attraction between them, their relationship was more about their burgeoning emotional bond. At least that's how I read it. :) Both characters had issues and they kept things hidden from each other. Hidden because they didn't want to lose the chance at "normal" that they felt with each other. However, in Lyndsey's case, her hidden things almost cost her her life.

    The secondary characters in Hidden were also very well done. I absolutely adored Leesa and Raoul. The small side story about Raoul was so sad and the end of that story was unexpected and highly emotional *sigh*. Raoul's situation only added to the overall heartbreaking feeling of the story. But Nick was steadfast and ever present for Lyndsey through it all. He was so sweet! I cried a little bit during their period of separation because they both tried so hard to be better. But the distance served them well because they learned how to be better separately and were even stronger as a couple when they came back together again.

    The sweetest part of the book for me was when Nick and Lyndsey made love for the first time. Nick told her:

    "That was beautiful and powerful, and you are beautiful and powerful. I am utterly in awe of you, and...And I can't believe I got to be part of that. You slay me, Goldilocks, you slay me."

    Although I rounded up my overall ranking for this book. The true rating is 3.5 hearts and that is solely for one reason. The characters were a bit too angsty for my liking. I know that you often find angst in young adult and new adult reads but I just don't enjoy it very much when I'm reading. It fit within the story and it wasn't over the top but it was noticeable enough for me. Now, with that said, I did enjoy the story overall. At the end of the story the reader glimpses the setup for Gabe's story and I truly look forward to seeing what Laurence does with him.
