Book Review-Hide My Heart: Love and Trouble-Rachelle Ayala

Wednesday, March 28, 2018

I have read a lot of Rachelle Ayala's books. She writes in almost all genres--I have to admit--I LOVED them all!

Amber McKay, kept innocent by her parents breaks loose and runs away--only to find herself in the hands of a psycho. She manages to escape--but can she? She goes to the only person she knows will help her--Nate. But the ultra possessive mountain man pursues her relentlessly. Amber convinces Nate to keep her secret. She honestly does not thonk her parents would accept her back again.

This story will hold you in thrall and rip at your heartstrings at all that Amber and Nate go through. Will all resolve itself in the end?
You really will have to read the book to find out! And I really suggest you do!!

Awe, it's going to be a tear jerker and a thriller keeping the readers on the edge of their seats. Why wouldn't her family let her come home so she made a mistake, who hasn't? Maybe she is assuming and wrong or not. Hope she gets to see her grandmother in time.
