DEVIL'S NIGHT is returning! Hiding places, chases, and all the games are back...


Buried in the shadows of the city, there’s a hotel called The Pope. Ailing, empty, and dark—it sits abandoned and surrounded by a forgotten mystery.

But you think it’s true, don’t you, Kai Mori? The story about the hidden twelfth floor. The mystery of the dark guest who never checked in and never checks out. You think I can help you find that secret hideaway and get to him, don’t you?

You and your friends can try to scare me. You can try to push me. Because even though I struggle to hide everything I feel when you look at me—and have ever since I was a girl—I still know that what you seek is so much closer than you’ll ever realize.

I will never betray him.

So sit tight.

On Devil’s Night, the hunt will be coming to you.


You have no idea what I seek, Little One. You don’t know what I had to become to survive three years in prison for a crime I would gladly commit again.

No one can know what I’ve turned into.

I want that hotel, I want to find him, and I want this over.

I want my life back.

But the more I’m around you, the more I realize this new me is exactly who I was meant to be.

So come on, kid. Don’t chicken out. My house is on the hill. So many ways in, and good luck finding your way out.

I’ve seen your hideaway. Time to see mine.

***Hideaway is a romantic suspense suitable for ages 18+. While the romance is a stand-alone, the plot is a continuation of events that began in CORRUPT (Devil's Night, #1). It is strongly recommended that you have read Corrupt prior to reading this.***

I’d like to start off by saying H O L Y  S H I T ! ! !  

I mean I knew…I KNEW that Kai’s book was going to BLOW MY MIND, but I had NO IDEA exactly how much! Die-hard fans of this series, we have been waiting, for what feels like FOREVER, for the second book in this INCREDIBLE dark romantic suspense series, and you know what?

I T  W A S  S O  F U C K I N G  W O R T H  I T !

I just LOVE IT when I get so jazzed about a book releasing, and I love the fact that I’m definitely not alone in this. HIDEAWAY is probably on A LOT of reader’s MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE lists, and I know it was at the TOP of mine, and when this bad boy landed on my Kindle, I went NUTS! Nothing else existed. There were no dishes to clean, dinner to cook, laundry to fold, errands to run…NOTHING! Nobody was getting between me and my Kai.

“Open your shirt for me, little one. Let’s see if I like what I’m getting for my trouble.”

INTENSE. BOLD. RAW. SEXY. GRITTY to the max! HIDEAWAY was E V E R Y T H I N G I was expected AND MORE! Kai and Banks…just WOW! These two are AMAZING together. They match each other in stubbornness, wit, and confidence. It was SO DAMN SEXY reading their interactions. My heart is still pounding thinking back on some of the scenes in this book. So, of course I’m not going to say anything about the plot, because this entire book was filled with twists, turns, and revelations. I don’t want to give anything away. Just know that you MUST read this series in order, so you MUST start CORRUPT before you even think about this book right here. TRUST ME on this! You DO NOT want to miss out on the FULL INSANE EXPERIENCE!

“You feel it don’t you?”    

“I’m already inside you.”

DAMN THIS MAN! Damn him for being so sexy, dark, and delicious! And Banks? Well, she was a spitfire throughout this entire read! She is a heroine you will LOVE to root for! Both of these characters, as well as, the supporting characters were EVERYTHING in this book! And it’s NOT OVER, my friends! I have a feeling Penelope Douglas is just getting started with us. Let the delicious TORTURE begin! Follow me over to the DARK SIDE and pick up HIDEAWAY, or START the Devil’s Night series today!
