Overview

After graduating from high school early, twenty-year-old Philippe Bergeron spent the past several years lost among the stars while fishing off the New England coast. A shoulder injury ends his dream of living reclusively on the water, and he finds himself lost among the bright lights of New York City. His older brother, Henri, has asked Philippe to chaperone his seventeen-year-old niece, Sophie, on her tours of the city's legendary dance programs.

Sophie meets with professional dancer and choreographer, Dario Pereira, to prepare a routine for her college auditions. Dario’s cool perfection and immaculate style contrast with Philippe’s awkward scruffiness, but it wakes desires Philippe thought he’d left behind. When the attraction is surprisingly returned, Dario’s confidence won’t let Philippe remain invisible. Unsure but curious, Philippe relaxes his rule of isolation, and as the summer progresses, his relationship with Dario leads him to a surprising discovery of his submissive sexual tendencies and a greater sense of self-awareness.

Tragedy threatens to destroy the connections Philippe has made and forces him to retreat into the shadows of his past, far from the radiance of Dario’s love. Ultimately, he must decide if it is time to stop hiding and set himself free.

    Gather the Lonely, then Cobble Together Families and Heal Hearts

    Out of Hiding is a sweet romance that brings together several lonely people to the backdrop of big, bustling New York City. I'm not just talking of the disparate love birds who would otherwise never have met but for a tour of New York's dance schools and colleges: there were plenty of characters who were bravely soldiering on at the beginning of the story despite tragic events and losses in their lives. This is a touching tale of finding and accepting oneself, and how the concept of 'family' has become much more varied and inclusive in our complicated world. Mia Kerick handles two incongruous concepts - fragmented families and a dominant/submissive MM relationship - and weaves them into an unlikely romance of love and healing. A divorced single mom, a young boy missing his daddy, a talented young ingénue coming of age, a fiercely competitive professional dancer, and a depressive gay recluse sounds more like the cast of a new season of Lost or some TV drama than a heartstrings-pulling MM romance, but Ms. Kerick pulls it off with plenty of hugs for characters and readers alike. The dominant/submissive couple is made up of a hurting, directionless young gay man paired with a fierce, confident partner who happens to have been a foster child, lonely for a family of his own. Ms. Kerick made the dom/sub romance less provocative and more a romance by balancing it with the subplot of searching for a good college and dance program for the character Sophie. Because it had equal focus as the budding romance between Dario and Philippe, Sophie's search became the launching point to showcase heartwarming interaction between a lot of the people in the story. This made the dom/sub aspect just one of the many relationships that brought healing and wholeness to the many characters, and the possible stigma of a sub/dom style was both lessened and clarified as a loving relationship. I think of myself open-minded enough about such partnership styles to begin with, but as a reader I appreciate the care Ms. Kerick put in emphasizing love as the important point of the relationship rather than giving the partnership style any shock value. Out of Hiding is an uplifting tale that played around with interesting relationship possibilities. Labels however can be a double-edged sword, and I applaud Ms Kerick's choice to use such things as tools to fuel an interesting, touching story. Recommended.
