Publisher's Summary

When Felix lands a job taking care of a man recovering from severe injuries, he thinks his life may have just turned around. Anything has to be better than the place he's leaving. There's something about Lane that draws Felix to him and makes him question if this place could finally become a home for him. But when someone begins stalking Felix, he is left to question who Lane is and what actually happened to him.   

Together, Felix and Lane will be forced to see just how far they will go to protect each other. Being chased by cops, kidnapping a man, and breaking into a drug operation seems to be his normal since arriving in Lane's life. Felix may be out of his element, but one thing he is sure about is that he doesn't want to leave, even if it costs him his life.

I'm going to keep this one in the Favorite pile

What do you get when you mix a bad ass motherfucker who was in the military and is used to doing undercover work but is now forced to rely on others and a reformed pick pocket that is used to being dismissed but is determine to do his job? You get the amazing masterpiece that is this audio book.

Okay so I’ve never read anything by this author before and by the cover art and the summery I went into this thinking that it was going to be a heart wrenching drama filled with lots of hurt/comfort and undying confessions of love. I did get all that but unexpectedly I also got so much humor and amazing characters that I did not want to put this book down.

Felix is a young man trying to be someone and finding his purpose in life. He comes from a though childhood filled with pain and drugs where the only comfort he got was none existent but now he’s found someone he doesn’t want to abandon him. Lane has to deal with his entire world imploding and needing help with the most basic of things but refusing to ask for it. This story could have gone a lot of ways but I’m so freaking in love with the way the author decided to take it.

Felix is a little shit and used to seeing life in shades of gray, what’s a little lying and a little stealing here and there? He’s a horrible cook and mean as hell when he constantly makes a blind man have to work for the assistance but Lane probably wouldn’t have it any other way. 10/10 recommend. The steamy scenes are great, the dialogue is hilarious, and the dog kind of steals the show halfway into the book.

Lol please give this one a try as I know I’ll be adding it to my pile of favorites.

delightful

Loved it.
Alice Winters is a new author for me and I'll be happy to pick up further titles in audio.
Joel Leslie doing what he does best - absolutely nailed both the sarcasm and humor of the characters and the suspense and tension in the story to make this a very entertaining listen.

Such terrific narration!

I honestly don't know if I would have kept going if I'd tried only visually reading the book. The humor in this is brought out so much more (and better) in Joel Leslie's delivery of the lines than I think in the actual written word. It's all in the delivery.

The two main characters, Felix and Lane, have the sort of "I hate that I kind of like you" attitude in the beginning with one another and Leslie not only pulls off their banter beautifully, but made me believe these two snarky lovers were perfect for each other. 

Notice I don't say they're perfect. They aren't. They're a**h*les that are individually so far from perfect they couldn't find it on a map, but together they make sense. I can see those two crazy kids really making a go of it, if Felix doesn't get them both killed with his shenanigans.

I loved listening to this and will absolutely be checking out book 2, A Light in the Darkness, pronto.

Though Lane does have a POV chapter, Hidden in Darkness is mostly told from Felix's POV. There's plenty of action, humor, heat, and a HFN ending. Definitely check it out in audio for the best experience.

Great Listen!

This was my first Alice Winters read and, honestly, I bought the audio book because I am a HUGE Joel Leslie fan. It was an excellent decision. It's a fast paced read filled with action and humor.

Laugh Out Loud

I have honestly never laughed as much as I did listening to this book! This is my first time listening to this author but it definitely won’t be the last. Felix’s awkward and bold personality complimented lanes stubbornness so well! I felt like the ending was a tad bit rushed and some of the situations they found themselves in were so easily resolved but overall bravo. Thumbs up for Alice winters!

Editing audio could be better

Joel did a pretty good job performing, but the pauses were annoying.... "he said." Fun story, though. Good job, Alice. Thanks for the entertainment.

A Bookload of Fun

I read this book on Kindle and was very much looking forward to the Audible release, especially when I heard that Joel Leslie was narrating. I was NOT disappointed. It was great! I laughed out loud, and often. The two main characters, Felix and Lane, are a lot of fun, particularly Felix, whom I LOVE. Excellent read, Alice!

Joel Leslie, as usual, was awesome. Each character's voice is unique. I never had to struggle to understand who was speaking. Narrator isn't a big enough word for Joel. He is a voice actor and a damned good one.

You will choke from laughing so much

Wow. Never read anything from this author before, but Joel Leslie is my FAVORITE narrator, so I thought I'd give this a try. Frankly, he could probably read the phone book and make it interesting.

The snark between Felix and Lane is laugh-out-loud hilarious. I don't mean that in a facetious way; I literally had to stop eating or drinking anything for risk of choking. It's good dialog brought to life by a talented narrator. There is humor, action, mystery and slow-burning romance. This duo will be an instant-purchase for me.
