COMING in 2017, HIDEAWAY is the second installment in the Devil's Night Series! If you've read CORRUPT, this is Kai's story.
You don’t even see me, do you, Kai Mori? No one does.
I’m the kid in the back, the one everyone dismisses, the no-life street punk with dirty finger nails and ripped jeans.
But I’m quiet, and I do my job. I can hang tough and no one does me any favors. I’ve always been on my own.
But then I see you...
Your perfect black suits. Your clean hands. The way you charge into the room, not afraid of the man I work for, and all of a sudden, I feel different.
Like maybe I want to know what you’re like with a woman.
As quickly as the urge comes, though, it disappears. You see, my boss has an agenda. He’s decided to put me in your path, but what he doesn’t realize is, I have plans of my own. A score to settle.
And you won’t know who I really am until it’s too late.
So sit tight. I’m coming to you.
You’re wrong. I’ve seen you before.
You’re the girl who looks like a fourteen year old boy and pretends everyone around her is public enemy #1. Yeah, I remember you.
Thunder Bay. Devil’s Night. Four years ago.
But the thing was…when your hat fell off that night, you looked nothing like a boy. And when I put my hands on you, you didn’t feel like one, either.
Now, after all this time, you’re in Meridian City, and while I don’t know who you are or want you want, I can’t wait to find out.
So come on. Door’s unlocked.
Just be warned, though…Devil’s Night is coming again, and I’m not alone this time.
My friends like to play, too.
**Note from the Author: HIDEAWAY still has no definite release date. Erotic suspense takes longer for me to write, and while I hate to keep anyone waiting, I know you'd rather have a good book than a quick one. Bear with me. Getting this book to you is a priority. XOXO**

Have you read the first book Corrupt?? You HAVE to read this book, like right now! Dive in and catch up on this while you wait for Hideaway to release.
I was told that dreams were our heart’s desires. My nightmares, however, became my obsession.
His name is Michael Crist.
My boyfriend’s older brother is like that scary movie that you peek through your hand to watch. He is handsome, strong, and completely terrifying. The star of his college’s basketball team and now gone pro, he’s more concerned with the dirt on his shoe than me.
But I noticed him.
I saw him. I heard him. The things that he did, and the deeds that he hid…For years, I bit my nails, unable to look away.
Now, I’ve graduated high school and moved on to college, but I haven’t stopped watching Michael. He’s bad, and the dirt I’ve seen isn’t content to stay in my head anymore.
Because he’s finally noticed me.
Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika.
My brother’s girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven’t had her body, I know that I have her mind. That’s all I really want anyway.
Until my brother leaves for the military, and I find Rika alone at college.
In my city.
The opportunity is too good to be true as well as the timing. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they’re out.
We’ve waited. We’ve been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true.
***Corrupt can be read as a stand-alone. No cliffhanger.
My Corrupt Review
His name is Michael Crist and I want him to be all mine.
OMG THIS BOOK. Addictive. I couldn’t put it down.
Seriously. I needed this book. I needed this reminder of why I do this. Why I spend countless hours promoting, reading, blogging, writing reviews and doing ALL THE THINGS. It’s to find gems like this that I didn’t expect. I didn’t plan on. I didn’t do the tour for this one but I stumbled upon it while looking for books that went live this week to help bring variety to our group members looking for something new to read. The synopsis halted me in my tracks and had me hooked. I’m a dark reads girl. Yes, I’ll read anything but my book crack is a dark romance. I love them like I love Starbucks and that is like A LOT. Like a lot a lot.
“I’m hungry, Rika,” he said, pressing his hard body into my back, his lips hovering over mind. “I want everything they tell me I can’t have, and I see that hunger in you, too.”
The story Penelope created was so in depth and well developed. That goes for the characters as well. That is a sign of great writer. When you can develop a story so well and make sure your characters do not suffer in the process. Talent. Pure talent. I love non rushed, slow burn, well developed books. This was that and then some.
“We want what we want.”
Suspense, dark, romance, a pinch of humor. Some of the hottest scenes I’ve read in a while. This book had it all.
The layers of this story were so well played that even though I thought I knew what was coming, I was dead wrong. Well played Penelope, well played. I know you are thinking you have this book pegged as one kinda story. Think again. This book isn’t anything like you are expecting. It’s more. So much more. I can not recommend this book enough.
PS…I just want to add one more thing. I FUCKING loved that MY music was mentioned in this book. Not country, not pop, not whatever else. MY MUSIC. I’d 5 star it for that alone. *fist bumps*
