Hideaway Cove is an engaging and mysterious adventure full of love. Holden, known as Hold, and Jessi have been through a lot and find it hard to trust.
Jessi is a single mother taking care of her son Benji and thinks that having a man around will do harm. Her first and only thought is Benji and according to her, he’s the only man she'll ever need.
Hold is in town in search of genealogy. He is looking for the long lost heir of the Stanhope family fortune. One of the Stanhopes, Clayton, wants to make sure that never happens and will do anything including hiring someone to kill, to do it.
Not only does Jessi have to deal with Hold trying to tear down her resistance and get her to date him, but she has to deal with Benji’s dad, Lance, coming back into the picture. Naturally with Lance back in town she’s stressed and uses that as a reason to push Hold away more.
Hold may be in town looking for the heir but there is just something about Jessi that makes his heart tick. Being rich has its obstacles, he learned that the hard way when his fiancé was with him for his money. So naturally he’s wary of women and chooses to not tell Jessi about his lineage. He soon realizes what a mistake that is and that he’s not only falling for Jessi but her son too. He will do anything to keep them safe even if they don’t know they need him.
I really loved this story and it kept me on my toes. It wasn’t just a love story but a mystery as well. Hold and Jessi are cute and hurting. At times they make you want to scream.
The dialogue between Holt and Jessi is funny and they are able to make jokes, it gets to the point where Jessi tells Hold that other women would consider what he’s doing stalking. They are both distrustful people, but as the book goes on you can see them work through it and in the end along with Benji get it right.
