My Rating: ❤❤❤½

GOOD: The characteristics of a 3 heart book include: interesting characters, a decent storyline, and unique story elements; there was something about the story that I didn't completely connect with; the book is a solid read. I would recommend it to a friend.

This book was provided by the author for an honest review.

My Thoughts:
Hidden was about Lyndsey Anderson and her journey to find healing for her mind, acceptance of her past, and love in her future.

Lyndsey Anderson was existing, not living, in one of the most scenic places on the planet, beautiful Hawaii. She works and goes to school...rinse and repeat. She has no friends and shuns all romantic entanglements because of her dark and troubled past. The reader doesn't find out about Lyndsey's past until her home is broken into and her past invades upon her present. But, before that happens, Lyndsey meets the handsome and equally troubled Nick Carlisle. Nick has returned from Afghanistan on the heels of the death of the woman he loved. He goes to therapy to try to recover from the crushing loss but he still cannot get over feeling as he is dangerous to everyone because he caused her death. When Nick and Lyndsey meet the attraction is palpable but both keep a discreet barrier between them. Well, mostly it's Lyndsey but Nick does not take no for an answer. He makes it his business to be where Lyndsey is and the restaurant where she works becomes his second home. Nick and Lyndsey settle into a comfortable friendship which slowly grows into more and Nick's steady presence whittle away at Lyndsey's resistance.

I enjoyed the easy progression of Lyndsey and Nick's relationship.

I received an arc in exchange for an honest review.

This was a sweet story of love and forgiveness. From the very beginning I thought, what are they both hiding? What's going to happen? But there were no tears or huge reveals.
Although filled with secrets, drama, loss, abuse.. it was somewhat subdued for me.
Still, I thought it was a good easy going read.

Great quotes from the book..
"love is something you don't throw away, because you'll never know when you'll see it again."
"saving them won't save you." "the only person you can save is yourself."

Hidden is a story about two broken souls, who are hiding from different things in their past. While trying to start over, they find each other and love along the way.

Lyndsey had to start a new life in Hawaii for mistakes she believes were her fault. Her only friends are the couple she works for at the bar. She loves them both dearly, but will not share her past with them or anyone for fear they will not understand.

Nick was a soldier in Afghanistan, who later moves to Hawaii with his best friend, Gabe to start over. While in Afghanistan, he witnessed something that he blames himself for everyday and for this reason he has not be able to let anyone new get close to him.

One night, Nick and Gabe go for drinks at the bar where Lyndsey works. Once Nick sees Lyndsey, he wants to get to know her better, which is something Nick has not wanted to do in a couple of years. They met again in class at the university they are both attending. Nick tries to get Lyndsey to go for coffee, but she constantly shots him down with work excuses, until the day they run into each other on the beach.

This is a relationship not to be missed. The story is believable and beautiful. You fight, pray and hope for Lyndsey and Nick as they learn to love, trust and believe in themselves all over again. I could not put this book down, wanting to learn more about their pasts and seeing how it affects their new relationship. The story is believable and beautiful.

It has an ending, even though it is the first in a series. I can't wait to get back to Hawaii to see what is happening with Lyndsey, Nick and the friends and family you grow to adore.

I got an Arc copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.

Went I started to read this book I could not put it down. It was heart wrenching what Lyndsey went thru. Then hearing what Nick went thru. You could feel the electricity that they had for each other when u were reading this book.They had to go thru a lot to get to where they ended up. I loved all the characters. Cant wait to read the next this series. I hope everyone will read this book and fall in love with Goldilocks and Nick

The book Hidden is based in Hawaii which peaked my interest before I ever read the first words! But once I started reading I didn't stop until I had finished the book.
Selena Laurence, the author, did an excellent job of developing not just the main characters but the secondary characters as well. I felt like I knew all of them and was living there right along with them! Character driven books are important to me.
Nick and Lyndsey are the two main characters. Both have moved to Hawaii to get away from their pasts and neither one of them is looking to get into a relationship. Once they meet the chemistry between them is so strong that eventually they can't resist getting together. But then Lyndsey's past catches up with her and she runs away from Nick leaving him only a note to say goodbye.
Once Nick finds Lyndsey he realizes that his own past is haunting him and he leaves her to try and get his life together. Although they still love each other they do not get back together and avoid each other at all costs.
Meanwhile the secondary characters who care for both Nick and Lyndsey try to make them see that life is too short to run away from a love as great as theirs but neither Nick or Lyndsey will listen and they continue to stay away from each other.
I don't want to give anything away but I will tell you that this book does have a happily ever after. It also has secrets, angst, danger and love. Definitely a 5 star book for me.
