About the Author
Tatiana Sokolov narrates a variety of fiction but especially likes saucy romances. She lives in the Midwest with her menagerie of pets.
A native of New Orleans, Jeremy York grew up playing music and singing long into the early morning. When a multi-band tour spirited him from the French Quarter across the country, he knew that he'd found home when he arrived in Venice, California. Always after a good story, he put his voice to work narrating audiobooks. --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Kai Mori never thought the threats from the past were buried, not with Damon still out there. He fears more than the others, that he will be back. And he'll want to make them all pay. Kai, Rika, Michael and Will, need to prepare, and work hard to keep their guard up, they need to make sure they are always one step ahead.
Kai is in for a shock when he learns, that the women working against Kai and his friends, and making his life more difficult in finding Damon, is none other than the girl he could never seem to forget. One Devil's Night, long ago, Banks, pushed back, ran from and played Kai's games. And now she's here watching his every move, and getting in his way. He'll have to be faster, smarter, and soon he'll be chasing after her once again.
Banks has watched Kai from a far for years now, always wanting what she knew she could never have with him. Banks finds herself confused, pulled in two different directions. Her loyalty to Damon, which is all she knows. Finding him and keeping him safe is what she needs to do. But then there is Kai, who she try's to keep at a distant, and not give into temptation whenever he's near. He could ruin everything she's been working for.
The want, the need. All the fighting, the sex, the need of being together, yet their different worlds trying to keep them apart. Makes for one passionate and unforgettable romance. I could not get enough of Banks and Kai's back and forth chase.
The mystery of who Banks is, where she came from, had me so intrigued from the moment we first got a hint of her. She is a serious bad-ass, I loved being in her head, and feeling the, all over the place emotions she felt. Her loyalty may confuse Kai and the others, and anger some, but Banks is just fighting for what she knows. All she's ever really know. She's just trying to survive. Banks has had to fight and prove she could hold her own.
I loved the dynamic of Banks. She was lost, lonely. But strong. Innocent in a lot of ways, but has seen darkness and pain. Being hidden away most of her life, looked past, Banks is slowly embracing a new side of herself. She's finding who she is, and realizing all the things she could have, want, for her life.
Kai. Kai Mori. I knew I was going to love this character, but I didn't know how much. And oh man is he my favorite. I mean favorite. Out of all the wonderful, sexy men, Penelope Douglas has given us in her stories, Kai is in the top spot. I LOVED him. A protective, kinky alpha with a dirty mouth, there's nothing you can't love about Kai.
Kai is a bit of a mystery, a good guy, who doesn't see that about himself. Kai feels he has to hide a lot of who he is, the darker parts, his needs and thoughts, things to dark, he feels, for some to handle if they saw the real him.
Preferring to be alone, Kai finds he hides a lot of himself from his friends, from his family. He fears disappointing them anymore than he already has. Kai has been working hard to get his life back, so he wont let anything or anyone jeopardize that.
Penelope Douglas's writing is addicting. Hideaway was intense, a perfect blend of scary, sexy, and it left me craving so much more in this wild world of the Horsemen. I just want to read it over and over again. With characters you don't want to leave, questions that you need answered, and a craving to stay in the darkness just a little longer, ending this book was bittersweet. But I will be happily, and a bit impatiently, cause I NEED more, waiting for the next book.
There were many very good things in this book that I’ll explain later but also what I experienced as “inconsistencies” and missed opportunities.
Hideaway is Corrupt’s sequel and the books should be read in order.
I loved Corrupt: the thrill, the twists, the jerks the revenge etc. And I loved Michael and Rika. One scene was particularly hot and Kai Mori was VERY involved. Kai all mysterious, distant and sexy.
I could not wait for his story and the same can be said for Damon’s story.
Hideaway revolves around Kai and Banks.
Kai and his friends are determined to find Damon as he is a threat to Rika. That’s the official version as Kai has other motives to find Damon. Said motives will only be revealed later in the book and helped keep me interested in the story. What was Kai’s secret?
Damon is hiding in plain sight and he escapes all attempts at being found. He is like a ghost!
It’s obvious Damon will need some incentive if they want him to “leave his den” so they go looking at his father’s house. Damon’s father, Gabriel, is a cruel and vile man. While visiting him they stumble upon “Banks”.
Banks an Kai have history.
Six years ago something happened between them at Devil’s Night. You could say it even began earlier that day. On that fateful night Kai discovered a very possessive Damon. Something he never was when women were concerned.
Banks could be the leverage they need.
OK that’s all for the plot as I don’t want to give spoilers.
So what worked for me?
Well I loved Kai and Banks. I even loved Banks better than Erika as she had to struggle her whole life just to eat and be considered. Banks is a fighter but she also is insecure as she never attended high school and always wore used outfits. She was also living in a very dangerous environment for girls: Gabriel’s house. Better be a man than a girl toy!
She also had a very peculiar relationship with Damon. Some could say an unhealthy relationship but I won’t say more. Suffice to say that she is loyal through and through to Damon.
Kai and Banks made perfect sense together and I loved the “hot and cold” as Banks had her reasons to rebuff Kai countless times. You could feel the tension and the chemistry between these two and it took a very strong person to keep Kai at arm’s length like Banks did.
I also loved the perpetual threat hanging on their heads as Damon was lurking somewhere and I waited all along to see him make his move. It gave the book a slight oppressive feeling. You know the villain is waiting to catch you but you don’t know when he’ll strike and where he will strike.
Above all else I loved all the information about Damon’s past. At the end of Corrupt I said that I would love reading about Damon as I thought he was a complex character and had probably “reasons” to do what he’s done. Hideaway confirmed what I thought and I’m fascinated by Damon. Truth be told what happened to me was appalling!
That said several things bothered me.
First: what I would call an “inconsistency” or a “hard to believe fact”: Kai never realizes Banks identity whereas someone close to him knows it. You would think after so many years the cat would be out of the bag and I did not think this very believable.
Second: we learn pretty soon that Kai loves “watching”. I thought it pretty exciting and expected some hot scenes around that topic but… nothing. Why give us this tidbit and not exploit it? It would have made sense and would have added another steamy layer to the story.
Third: Banks always chooses Damon. Yes I can understand why she would do it but on the other hand given the circumstances she should have realized by now that he did not really need her or rather that he was using her for his own benefits. Choose him for some time yes but after so many pages it was tiring. On the other hand I can understand that “the devil you know… “ and all that jazz was appealing to Banks. Given her personal history she craved protection and stability. Something she thought hard to achieve on her own for the girl without high school diploma.
Did Penelope sometimes struggle with her story?
So why three stars given all the “plus” here above compared to the “minus”? Well because it’s Penelope and I expect grand things from her. The same as a teacher expects more from brilliant students I desire excellence from Penelope.
Recommend it? Certainly! If you have read Corrupt this is a must read.
Will I read other Penelope Douglas’s books? Of course! She is among my favorite author. This is probably just a blip. What bothered me may not deter you from your read at all!
Top international reviews
I loved the development of his character in this. His loyalty to his friends, his love for his family.
But, his and Banks' connection is hot AF!!! Sexy times are SEXY... Phew, I needed to fan myself a couple of times the heat was a-scorching!!
Banks is a badass, (to me anyway) she has this inner core that is strong in one way yet weak in another. A couple of times I was shaking my head at my kindle and asking what?! Why?! Goddamit!!
She is an assistant to Gabriel Torrance, who is just a horrible bloke. I really felt like I wanted to just kick him in the balls all the time. He was such a dick. To her, his family, his animals, everything.
Anyways, suffice it to say that if you love Penelope Douglas - or even if you don't - you HAVE to read this series. I would love to tell you more but I'd be spewing spoilers everywhere in my enthusiasm.
So, so very well written and the plot is amazing, carrying on from 'Corrupt'.
I had already read the Fall Away series and became hooked on her writing. Definitely a one clicker for me.
Thanks also Penelope, for now making me salivate, with the snippet of Devil's Night #3 - Kill Switch. The wait will be as interminable as this one was! Lol!
Happy reading and enjoy x
Corrupt has got to be one of my Top 5 favourite books and I’ve read it countless times. Michael Crist was always my number 1, but there was always something about Kai Mori that had me wanting to learn more about him, (and *that* scene with Kai, Michael and Rika in the steam room was just everything!) Once I found out that Hideaway was going to be Kai’s book, I was desperate to get my hands on it. When I finally did, I devoured it! Banks was perfection, she gave Kai a run for his money and they were so perfectly suited. I started this book and didn’t move until I had finished a couple of hours later.
I know for sure that this series will be one that I revisit over and over again. Penelope Douglas is a superb storyteller. She knows how to draw the reader in, and keep them hooked, with her constant twists and turns and all the surprises that you just don’t see coming. I can not recommend these books highly enough!!!
All the tension, twists and turns, secrets and revelations I was expecting were definitely there. I was engrossed in the story from start to finish.
I have massive love for Kai he's struggled a lot since his release from prison. He's a dark horse and has his share of secrets.
I really liked Banks she's had a tough life trying to prove herself to those who think she's not not worthy and I admired her strength.
The Horsemen are back and in fighting form. I've missed them and loved catching up.
Even though this was Kais book and I love him, Damon stole the show for me. I'm drawn to his Dark and Dangerous side. You've got to love the F@@ked up one's the best.
I'm really excited for his story, I know it'll be Epic.
"I am either right, or I'm learning."
This book is everything you wanted.
It's dark. Gritty. Captivating. Heart wrenching.
The emotions you go through keep you on the edge if your seat guessing what is going to happen. You might get a inkling but BOOM you're thrown in a different direction.
Only a great writer can truly hold its audience like this. If you want an adventure this is it. Please read the first book in the Devils Night series called Corrupt prior. You won't be disappointed. Prepare to fall hard, but for which horseman?
I was hoping to start my re-read sooner so I was ready for Kill Switch release day, but "life" got in the way! Lol
I love Pen's books and it says a lot that I re-read her stories because I have never re-read any books other than hers.
Devil's Night Series is by far my favourite and Hideaway is a great follow on from Corrupt. I love Kai & Banks just as much as I love Michael & Rika!
I'm so excited for Damon & Winter now!
A really great book that I couldn't put down and I can't recommend it enough
