Ebook: Hidden Under Her Heart (Romance)- Review


I love to read, so adding a book review page seemed to be ideal for me. My first book was an E-book offered to me. I am a sucker for romance books, and let me tell you this book dragged me right in from the beginning. Between taking care of the house and kids the only time I really got to read was at night, needless to say I had two sleepless nights because I was unable to put my Kindle down.

Hidden Under Her Heart   By Rachelle Ayala

Please visit Rachelle Ayala’s blog and Facebook page to keep up with her work.

Most woman I know can relate to Maryanne Torres. She is a compassionate nurse who always fails at relationships. After a string of losers, she swears off premarital sex, hoping to find a man worth her time. That’s when she meets Lucas Knight, a law-school dropout who moves to California to train for the Ironman Triathlon. He’s smart, sweet, and everything Maryanne (and every other female) wants in a guy. There relationship is rocky due to his training. Seeking consolation in the arms of a handsome preacher’s son, Maryanne attends a church party where she is raped.

Later Maryanne finds out she is pregnant.  Lucas asks Maryanne to look into alternatives and offers to support her through the pregnancy. When Lucas becomes the prime suspect, Maryanne must clear his name and make a life changing decision.

With her father in the way, her decision is hard, but he does not want to lose any evidence of the rape, so he can continue the suit against the church. Lucas also gets a few surprises from his own family and learns a lot about his mother and decisions she made throughout her life, giving him new perspectives on his own life.

The rapist has other ideas. In order to destroy the evidence, he offers Maryanne an illegal offshore abortion. With Maryanne’s life in danger, Lucas races to save her and the baby. However, Maryanne is hiding a secret that could threaten to tear them apart.

[Content Advisory: This book has a pro-life slant. There are a few swear words. The rape is not shown, but there is one mild sex scene between Maryanne and her boyfriend.]

if you are offended by sexual play between unmarried people and the f-word. This book deals with a controversial topic. The author has tried to be fair to both sides and present the story in its raw and emotional form.
