Hiding Away (Anchored Hearts Vol. 1.5)

Cover and formatting updated April 2017.

***Mature content. 18+ age recommended. This book deals with adult topics that may be hard to read. Proceed with caution.***

~ Author Skye Turner: There is drama, romance, HOT sex, heartbreak, humor, and love in many forms in Hiding Away.
I actually loved this book and to me, it emotionally involved me even moreso than Letting Go.
Please note, this book does involve a major cliffhanger and you may feel the need to throw your ereader across the room (or message the author, cussing) when you are done reading, but that should NOT deter you from grabbing this novella.

This is a companion novella. While you could read it as the first for Hiding Away (Cal & Jane's story), it is recommended that you read it after Vol. 1. All of the volumes will cross over into one another.

Letting Go (Uncover Me is alternate title)
Hiding Away
Letting Go of You (Uncover Me is alternate title)
Fading Away
Letting Go of Us (Uncover Me is alternate title)

Who do you trust, and who do you love, when the secrets of your past are so painful that they have you Hiding Away?

Jane Whitford had everything she ever wanted, at her fingertips, when it was violently ripped away. The man who was supposed to love her turned into a monster. Broken and bruised, she fled his clutches back to her hometown, ready to rebuild her life and her career. Love is the last thing she wants when she meets Cal. The only thing on her mind, when it comes to him, is fun. Lots of it. Will she open her heart to him before it's too late?

Calvin Charles is a cop on the streets, working hard to achieve his goal of joining the SWAT team. He strives to live with no regrets and has everything he needs; friends, family, and the occasional woman to warm his bed. Until he meets Jane, and she quickly becomes everything he wants. Will he be able to get her to open up when she’s convinced that exposing her secrets will cost her his love and respect?

Will his love be strong enough to survive? Or will her secrets be the death of him?

This is book 1.5 in the Anchored Hearts Series, and while I say yes you can read it as a stand alone I think you would get more out of it if you read book one first.  This is Cal and Jane's story.  When we first meet Jane she is in a not so good relationship, you get to see first hand how she is treated and why she leaves and goes back home to be with her family. Her Mom and her Cousin who is her best friend, James. We meet James in book one of this series. We also are introduced to Jane, and you don't really know what made her come home in the first book, but you find out why in this one.   Jane becomes quite fond of Cassidy, James' girl, and in the process of getting to know Cassidy she meets Cassidy's brother Cal. INSTANT sparks!! Fire crackers flew out of my kindle! I had to fan myself.. I wasn't sure if I could love two people more in this series then James and Cassidy. I was very skeptical. But it was put to rest immediately as I was sucked into the pages.  The story was so captivating it felt real. I hope you understand that. :) So much has happened to Jane, she is scared and she is broken, but the cool thing is she wants to be put back together whether she sees that or not. Most of the time the woman is just done and doesn't let anyone in and it is like fighting tooth and nail for something you probably aren't going to get anyway. Now don't get me wrong she isn't a pushover. She struggles with all that has happened to her and there are a couple of times when she wants to confide in Cal and she just can't find the strength to do it.  THIS IS A CLIFFHANGER!! I found myself hanging off the side of the freaking cliff and the Author has left me there, laughing her evil laugh .. saying "I got myself another one" Yes she did!!!! I can't wait to read what happens with these two characters as well as James and Cassidy this is a spectacular read!!! A must read!!! A why didn't I read that sooner read.  It has so much creamy goodness throughout the whole book you will end up reading it in one sitting just like I did!! Thank you again for another wonderful story in this series!!! You ROCK hard!!!!!!! <3

Ohhh where to start with this one.  Even though this book is a novella, it didn't feel like it, because I was already so familiar with the characters.  This is the story of Calvin and Jane, we got to know them in Letting Go and in Hiding Away we come to love them.   Calvin and Jane fall hard and quickly in love.  But Jane's past still haunts her, and Calvin just wants to make Jane happy.  But when Jane's past meets her at the front door all hell breaks loose and some pretty unmentionable things take place and then,,,and then,,,, Oh hell I can't even go on.  I'm just going to say I totally loved this book, I can't wait for the next one, and EVERYONE should go read them :-)  Now I'm off to sulk for a bit.

The 2nd story in the Anchored Hearts series is a fabulous romp of fun. Cal and Jane are terrific characters, they are funny, and endearing. I couldn't put this down. Her sneaky little plot twist left me wanting the next one now!

I loved Cal when we met him in Letting Go, how could you fail to not fall for this protective alpha cop, and so I was very excited to see that he and Jane were getting their own story, there are appearances by Cassie and JB3 which was lovely old friends dropping in to say hi, but this story was left on an absolute cliffhanger, after going through so many emotions during the story and then to end where it did, I cannot wait for the next instalment to find out what happens because my heart is still beating so fast with the build up to the finale. We knew Jane but it was really good to actually get to know her and her story, it drew us closer and closer to her as we saw her growing in strength and when she met Cal being able to open up to him and have a relationship took a lot of courage. Cal was aware that Jane had gone through suffering in her last relationship and it was beautiful to see what care he took and how patient he was with her all while still being a tough cop, but he also knew that with his job you had to take your chance when it comes because you never know what is going to happen so he did.  This story had my emotions going up and down, steamy scenes and such sweet scenes all working together to make a wonderfully readable and believable story.  I received a free copy for an honest review.

I loved this book. When I first read Letting Go, JM Witt was a new author to me, but I loved the book so much and I was completely hooked :) So it is not a big surprise that I devoured this one for one sitting. I just couldn't stop reading. I cannot imagine a heartbreak like Jane's and surviving what she went through and despite all that having the strength to pick up the peaces and start with her life again and even trusting another man. Yes, she kept her secrets but Cal managed to glue the pieces of her heart together, make her whole again. Having all that in mind, the ending was not I expected. I loved the suspense and I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series to find out what will happen with Cal and Jane, and of course with Cassidy and JB3 :) Definitely a recommended read :)

Writing a review for this book poses an extreme dilemma for me.  I have been procrastinating this review for nearly a month.  The story pulls at the heartstrings with a moving and sexy new romance, and ping-pongs back and forth from discovering new love, to gut wrenching anxiety.  The love scenes varied from sweet and tender, to hot and steamy - and I loved them all. There were moments when I could not read fast enough, and other moments when I actually could not catch my breath.  Ms. Witt does an excellent job in conveying the full range of emotion and passion.  I was a happy camper until - arg - a cliffhanger.  I don't have enough polite words in my vocabulary to express my displeasure! I am not a fan of this distressing trend.  On the one hand, I feel emotionally invested and care about these characters, I want to know what happens to them.  But on the other hand, I am resentful of the abrupt and dramatic ending. I felt much like I had been left dangling from the flag pole, in a short skirt, on a stormy day... raw and exposed.  So, feeling as I do, can I recommend this novella to others?  It IS an emotive story and merits a read, but I feel compelled to add this warning label - recommended for adults who like sensual romance and don't mind having their heart repeatedly constricted and inflamed, then forcibly removed for transplant, with no donor forthcoming for months on end. Grumble... grumble...

I just love Cal and Jane and am very happy that we are getting to read their story. In “Letting Go”, author JM Witt’s debut novel, Jane captured my interest and Cal captured my heart. Learning the events in Jane’s past that have brought her back to her hometown and into Cal’s life took me on an emotional ride that left me believing in the power of love. Cal…I don’t even know where to begin – I think he is just perfect! Although Cal has been a bit of player, it’s obvious that once he meets Jane that she is “it” for him. It was fun reliving some of the scenes in “Letting Go” and hearing them in Cal’s POV, and seeing just how quickly and hard Cal fell for Jane. I also liked learning a bit more about Cassidy’s past as events unfolded in Cal’s life. Jane had me all over the place with my emotions. My heart was breaking as I learned about her past, I was cheering for her as she took control of her life and made tough decisions, and I was rooting for her as she struggled to find her way with Cal. Although the events in “Hiding Away” run parallel to most of the events in “Letting Go”, I never felt that I was re-reading the same story. Because the focus was on Cal & Jane, the scenes that were retold were fresh and gave new perspective to the story that was told in “Letting Go”. It was also fun learning a bit more about James & Cassidy though Cal & Jane telling their story. As far as the cliffhanger – JM Witt I hate you, but I say that in the most loving way! I am not a huge cliffhanger fan, but to be honest, I’m ok with how you left things…for now…so get writing and let us know what happens next! I was given a copy of this book by the author for an honest review.
