Hiding Out by Nicole Andrews Moore

Hiding Out
Nicole Andrews Moore

Sam Davenport is the role model for taking on responsibility. Taking control of the family business after his father's death, he is used to bearing the weight on his shoulders. He is all business all the time, especially after his ex. No one can turn his head, until Haley.

Haley Iverson is on the run. Turning up at her college roommate's home on New Year's Day, determined to start her life over. She wears baggy clothes, is extremely timid, and runs about 5 miles a day.

Soon, Haley is off to work as a temporary assistant for Sam. Sam is determined to find out what happened to Haley. Under the guise of wanting to get to know her better, he goes out of his way to come up with excuses to spend time with her. What starts off as natural curiosity turns into friendship & love.

Sam has a deep seeded need to protect Haley, in his process of doing so, he inadvertently exposes her to harm. And he will do whatever it takes to fix it, if only Haley will let him.

I really love Sam, he's not so much controlling but protective & nurturing. He immediately notices something off with Haley, takes some initiative, and handles her with the kids' gloves she needs. The reader can feel the pain and anguish that Haley has experienced, we can feel the trauma of what she went through, and her will to survive it.

The author did a great job of transporting us into the lives of Haley & Sam. I really loved this book & can not wait until the 2nd installment comes out so we can find out more about our dear book brother Adam, I have a feeling Adam is going to be brought to his knees.

As always, Nicole Andrews Moore has me hooked again.
