*Hideaway is a romantic suspense suitable for ages 18+. While the romance in this story is a stand-alone, the plot is a continuation of events that began in CORRUPT. It is strongly recommended that you have read Corrupt (Devil’s Night #1) prior to reading this book. Corrupt is currently on sale for only $0.99.
This review may contain spoilers, so fair warning, upon reading the review.
Hideaway is the second book of the Devil’s Night series and man I am in LOVE with this series so far and what Penelope Douglas has built with these books. And I normally don’t go for the super hyped reads, however, I will say that these books are definitely worth all of it and more. There is such intrigue and depth of emotion that just creeps up on you within each installment. Hideaway is Kai’s book and after the first book, I didn’t know what to expect with his book to be honest. And what Hideaway builds into is NOT what I thought would turn out for his book but despite the fact that it went a way I didn’t see coming, I was all for the journey of Kai and Banks and seeing their romance blossom.
Hideaway begins with taking us back and forth between the present and past of Kai and Banks. Kai and Banks first meet when Kai and his friends ruled high school, and they meet in a church and form a bond of sorts. There is a connection between them but there is one complication, her brother and confidant, is none other than the villain in the story….Damon. Banks has kept herself from truly being seen as a woman, and hides herself away behind boys clothes. There is a bond between Banks and Damon, but one that has been kept hidden away for many years. Kai and the others know that Damon is the enemy, and a threat, but they also know that Banks is key to some answers. But as tensions build up, Banks will have to choose between two men that hold her heart…..the brother and the lover. Will Banks be able to choose or will she risk losing them both?
Hideaway is a story which is guaranteed to tear through all of your emotions in all the best and worst of ways imaginable. In the beginning, the story does start a bit slow, and to be honest, flashbacks just aren’t my favorite thing to read in a romance, I can be too impatient and I want to get to all the good stuff (haha) However, there is a unique element in which this author implements them that gravitates me so completely. I was so drawn into Kai and Banks romance and seeing all the sexy angsty banter that builds between them. One thing you can be guaranteed with a Penelope Douglas, is that her stories will always deliver and entertain especially in ways you won’t see coming. I will say that Kai and Banks never ceased to entertain, they definitely have their issues and secrets but in the end, they are willing to fight for each other when it truly matters which is what makes this such a beautiful story at the end of the day. And man do I need Damon’s book, because his story is going to be some wild sauce.
Overall I found Hideaway to be such a dynamic of a romance, it offers depths of perception, wilds of intrigue and thrills, secrets that know no bounds, family bonds that go deeper than expectations, and truths that are revealed that will deliver shocks and delights and a story that is guaranteed to deliver in all the ways that matter.
