Rating: You Need to Read

Wild Thing Series, Book One. Life can’t be all fun and games, or can it? Madison Stewart spends her days taking care of children at the Sunny Days Childcare Center, and her nights wondering what’s missing from her life. When Robert Cooper brings his three year old daughter, Sophie, to the center, he not only fills the vacancy in Maddie’s classroom, but also the empty spot in her heart.

Sophie’s mother returns with her own agenda, and Rob is forced to choose between an old, familiar existence and his new, more complicated relationship. Shocked and hurt at his indecision, Maddie, with secrets of her own, feels the need to run and hide. When Rob seeks her out, what he finds stuns him and changes their lives forever.


Every once in a while you get a book that really touches your heart. Hide and Seek was that book for me. Although the relationship between Rob and Maddie wasn't perfect, it was a moving and powerful read. Maddie was a strong and confident woman who did what she needed to do in order to take care of her life. This is the part where it gets hard not to throw a spoiler in. From the moment that Maddie leaves her former life, the plot line takes off. There are so many twists and turns and I was up late into the night just waiting to see what happened next. Rob and Maddie had intense feelings of love but of course there was conflict in the form of an unpleasant ex and misunderstandings. Sophie's character gripped my heart and didn't let go. She seemed so grown up for her age and because of that, some of her reactions just made me laugh out loud.

Rob's character had me scratching my head sometimes, but watching him grow into the man he was meant to be made it all worthwhile.

Ms. Hill is one of my favorite authors and I'm reminded of that each time I read one of her books. She has a talent for taking the reader on a journey with unforgettable characters while developing a plot line that is highly entertaining. Hide and Seek is a very addicting read and I strongly urge you to pick it up the minute you get the chance.


  1. Wow, this is my first review for Hide and Seek and I'm so pleased you "got it"...LOL Thanks a bunch Val, really appreciate your kind words!

  2. You're welcome. It was an exciting book that I will remember for a long time. :)

  3. A wonderful review for a truly amazing book. I was lucky enough to do some editing on this one and man oh man was it a sweet job. I adored Sophie. Maddie and Rob were great, but that Sophie stole my heart.

    Beautifully done and this is one book I'd recommend to anyone who loves a real honest to goodness romance between real people.


  4. Aw, thanks Jude! Couldn't have done it without your help and support, as usual!
