Review Tour & Giveaway ~ Hide and Seek, Vigilance #1, by Desiree Holt

Hide and Seek
by Desiree Holt
Genre: Romantic Suspense


Anything can happen when you let your guard down . . .

After receiving a violent threat on the heels of her father’s disappearance from the town of Arrowhead Bay, Devon Cole fears for her life—until Vigilance, a local private security agency, steps in to shield her from danger. Although she isn’t usually quick to surrender her freedom, she has no problem stripping her defenses for her new sexy bodyguard . . .

Tortured by the painful memory of lost love, Logan Malik is determined not to fall for a client again. So when he’s tasked with watching over Devon day and night, he’s focused on doing his job. Day is no problem, but as tensions rise at night, nothing can protect them from giving in to unbridled passion . . .


“And we’re working on the backgrounds of the Cole International execs. Do you have everything there you need?”

Logan had his own personal weapons with him—a Glock 19, a Ruger LCP and his Kabar knife—but on the remote chance of an invasion he wanted to be covered on all fronts.

“More firepower. I’ll text you the list as soon as I hang up. How are you coming with the phone?”

“We’ve just gotten started with it. First of all, it’s not an ordinary cell phone. It’s made by a company like the one that makes ours.”

“So it’s ten times as hard to crack.”

“That’s right. We got past the factory restore and there’s data on it, but it also seems to have multiple passwords.”

Logan snorted. “Can you say paranoid? Now I’m sure there’s shit on it we need.”

“I’ve got Del on it. He’s got it hooked up to a bunch of different programs at the same time. If anyone can break it, that would be him.”

“Okay. Keep me in the loop on that.”

“Ginger’s been digging into Graham Cole with an electronic shovel. I want to know everything from the past ten years, personal and corporate. There’s a clue somewhere and I mean for us to find it. I’ll bet we find a lot of unpleasant crap there.

“I hope we find something soon,” he told her. “I don’t think they’re near done with her.”

“And that’s why you’re there, Mr. Marine.”

“Ooh rah.”


The last thing you expect is to receive a call to let you know that your father, the only parent you have left after losing your mother to cancer, is missing. And if that is bad enough, you start to learn just exactly what kind of business he was into. But when that business starts to come after you, the drama intensifies.

Devon Cole is a strong, independent woman that isn't afraid to stand up for herself. I love her go get 'em attitude and always willingness to do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of this situation.

Logan Malik is man that takes his job seriously. When he vows to protect you, you know he'll do it with every fiber of his being. I love how he takes to caring for Devon right from the start. He's a man of many talents.

The connection between the two is electric, their sparks fly off the pages. They may have come together because of Devon's predicament, but their bond is deep and profound.

Hide and Seek is an intense, thought provoking,  page turner that you won't want to put down. The twists turns this read takes will keep you guessing who really is behind all the intrigue.

Desiree weaved a story that captivates the reader from start to finish. The story line is riveting, the characters engaging, the drama intense, and the passion sizzling.

Hide and Seek is the first book in this series and I can't wait to see what Desiree will bring us next.

If you are looking for a romantic, suspenseful read, then I highly recommend you pick Hide and Seek and go an adventure that will leave you with a satisfying book hangover.
