Will his love be strong enough to survive? Or will her secrets be the death of him?
I’m a stay-at-home mom with four young children and one extremely supportive husband. We've been married for nine years and reside in Highland, Michigan.
I've dreamed of writing romance novels since I was little. After having baby #4, who may or may not have been fathered by Christian Grey, I decided it was time to pursue my dreams.
When I'm not volunteering at the schools of my children, running to various appointments, enjoying time with my friends and my book club, dating my husband, or avoiding cleaning my house, I'm writing!
I love music and believe that books and music can't exist without the other. My goal is for you to read more than a good book, but for you to have an experience!
My Review of Hiding Away
J.M. Witt Books
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
