I liked this story a lot. I didn’t want to put this down as I wanted to see what is going to happen next. This book had : danger, mystery, romance, drama, suspense, surprises, humor, action. Threats, hot chemistry, guilt, secrets, and a lot more This story did feel realistic This definitely keeps your interest all the way through this book. At times you are on the edge of your seat. I was glad for the backstory. I felt this had a good plot and pace. I enjoyed the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.
You know, I mostly liked this one, but a H who is as concerned with getting in the h's pants as he is with keeping her alive...yeah. It does not help that she'd, in telling him her life story, basically clued him in that she wasn't looking for a fling, and his history with relationships indicated he wasn't much better than her adoptive father.
Really dude, she told you no for a reason. Her mom divorced her dad after entirely too many holidays alone, and your wife divorced you for similar reasons - as you told her.
Of course, he finally succeeds, figures out afterward that he's in over his head as far as this relationship goes, and panics. In his mental freakout (and possibly, arrogance), he was careless and she was shot.
I kept hearing Jack Ryan's voice though - "I'm just an analyst!" The H was a code breaker; not a field agent.
My onliest gripe with the h was that she didn't hold out, and tell him why. I almost prefer the romantic suspenses where sex never happens. Seems to me that too many authors have the H thinking with the wrong head too much to be v. effective at his job.
Hide And Seek by Desiree Holt is an amazing start to Ms Holt's new series, Vigilance. No wonder I love this author's books. Hide and Seek is a fantastic read. Ms Holt has delivered another well-written book loaded with phenomenal characters that are a perfect fit for this story. Devon and Logan's story is peppered with drama, suspense, action, humor and melt your e-reader sexy bits. I totally love, love, love this book and can't wait for my next book by the talented Desiree Holt. Hide And Seek is book 1 of the Vigilance Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
