This is a short story at approx 145 pages so the timeframe from introduction to full relationship moves very fast. Nonetheless it is a good story, sexy with a HEA. The poor editing including a really bad auto correct was a distraction.

We all need someone to believe in us. Jessica is used to taking care of herself and her heart. She is smart and talented, works twice as hard at her job than her boss does. She has never had anyone who supported her. She no longer believes in relationships. She knows that her friend Alex is attracted to her, but he is her big brother and protector. She isn’t looking for love, she no longer believes in it. Royce walks into her life and is immediately attracted to her. He is respectful, patient and a Dominant, he doesn’t just play with BDSM, it is a way of life for him. When he first gives her instructions and she follows without question, he sees that she is a natural submissive. He takes his time, pushes her limits, creates a desire in her like she has never felt before and opens her up to a world where honesty, respect, communication and consequences are paramount. She keeps him at arm’s length in an effort to protect herself and her heart. Royce is patient and no matter how often she tries to push him away, he is there. This is a great book (and series) for anyone curious about the lifestyle. The detail the Author uses to allow Royce to get Jessica to open up mentally, physically in emotionally is very well developed. (Book received from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.)

Jessica doesn't trust men, however Kendrick is determined to change that, and make her his. This is a great beginning to the Windy City series. I really enjoyed this story, which was well written and did a great job of introducing us to the characters of the series. I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Hidden Heart is a quick but passionate romance. It starts with Jessica getting her first glimpse at submission and dominance albeit a little reluctantly at first. Royce is absolutely swoon worthy Dom, and as opposed to Jessica's hesitation he purses her breaking down each and every wall she puts up along the way. I loved watching these interact throughout the story there was so much chemistry between them, but Jessica making Royce fight for every in he got made watching them come together as a couple so much sweeter. Jessica's introduction to dominance and submission was very raw, and I felt her doubt and insecurities with every boundary that Royce pushed her through. Royce didn't just push Jessica though he showed all the aspects of a relationship and what how a real man treats his woman and showed her that allowing him in didn't mean she would get hurt, but that he could help heal the wounds others had left in their wake. The BDSM scenes in this book were very creative and intense. I especially loved the clothespin pain and pleasure scene, but I won't say any more on that so I don't spoil any of the book. There are quite a few sexual scenes dispersed throughout the book guaranteed to leave you hot and bothered looking for your own Royce at the end. The book also has an excerpt at the end for the next story in the series about a character we met in this story, and I am off to read her story next. This is book is a great short read and will leave you eager to start the next book in this new series by Measha Stone! **This book was provided to me as an ARC by the publisher of Hidden Hart.**

Jessica & Rocyce's story is a quick and steamy read. I look forward to reading the next book in this series. The scenes were detailed but sweet with a good mix. I received an ARC copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
