A man who shoots first and asks questions later…

Most people would take an all-expenses-paid trip to the beach in a heartbeat. Garrett Kelly only accepts to keep tabs on Sarah Daniels, who’s in hiding after witnessing a murder by Marcus Lattimer, her half-brother—and a personal enemy of KGI. This gig may be beneath a disciplined soldier like Garrett, but if he gets a shot at Lattimer, it will all be worth it…

…and the ultimate moving target.

But Garrett hadn’t counted on falling for Sarah. He’d considered seduction as a tactical maneuver, but when he glimpses Sarah’s dark past, he feels an urgent desire to keep her safe—even after she disappears on him. Garrett doesn’t know exactly who, or what, Sarah’s running from, but whatever it is, she’s running for her life…
 
Thoughts: Hidden Away was another winner for me in Maya Banks KGI series. Who would ever thought that grouchy Garrett could be so sweet and loveable. The bag of books and wine scene had me swooning. Best part of the book for me was the slow burn romance. The island setting was perfect and different from the other books. Like with others in this series get some action and humor. Maya Banks knows how to write family in this series. They never take away from the story line as they are part or it. The Kelly family and friends are fun and realistic.

  1. I have read a few of Maya's Highland romances and didn't care for them. I would like to read something else by her. Everyone seems to love her books but I felt like the writing was off in some of her Highland books(not appropriate for that time). I would love to give her romantic suspense a chance! Great review. Glad you got some reading in!

    1. I have read many reviews for historical romances that do not feel right for the time frame. I have never noticed since I am really not that familiar with those time frames. I am enjoying her romantic suspense.

  3. Yes! This was one of my favorites in the series. I think I gave it a 5 as well. The early ones in the series are just amazing aren't they? So happy you enjoyed it.

    1. I am so excited that this was your favorite. The first 3 books were all kinds of amazing for me. It is always a bummer when later books in a series goes down hill.
