My Rating 5/5
Kai, Kai, Kai….ayayay.
Ok, here we go.
In this book Kai is still trying to get over what he went through in prison and we learn a bit about his upbringing and his parents. If you didn’t already love him in Corrupt you definitely will in Hideaway because this boy is PERFECTION — even if his fuckedupness.
So who is the girl worthy of Kai’s heart? She goes by the name of Banks and she has had it ROUGH. Rika is a rich girl that wanted fun and adventure (no shame, I love Rika) but Banks has been living in hell. Her mother is a drug addict and she has grown up in a household where abuse is the norm, so if the Horsemen think they can actually scare her, they have another thing coming! Whatever the Horsemen were up to before seems like child’s play to her.
Kai and Banks are in a complicated…business situation, but Kai is feeling all the feels for Banks and wants to help her. Banks, being used to abusive people, doesn’t trust him even though she really, really, really, wants to.
“There’s something about you, kid,” he said.
“Around you, I get hungry. Like I’m starving.”
There are less sexy scenes and they are brief in comparison to Corrupt but they are still very good, and the love is so intense you feel it pour out of the book.
There are a lot of other things that I absolutely loved about the book but if I explain them I will give away too much information. If you choose to read Hideaway (after having read Corrupt!) I want you to go in wondering who Banks is and discover it as your read. Banks and her family are a huge part of what I is starting to seem like a much bigger picture. I could be wrong, but that is the feeling I am getting!
Character development 5/5
