Hideaway (Devil’s Night #2) by Penelope Douglas

“I’ll kiss you like I should’ve.” 

Resume: The continuation of the Devil’s Night series, brings the story of Kai Mori and Banks. The story takes us back to their highschool days where the “Four Horseman” ruled the school and had all girls after them. Kai used to have all girls he wanted, until a tomboy girl caught his attention. Seven years later, Kai is still recovering from his time he spent in prison when during a meeting, he meets the girl that has been haunting him for seven years and that holds the answers he needs for the questions inside his head.

“There is something about you, kid,” he said “Around you, I get hungry. Like I’m starving.”

Kai…Kai was my favorite character in book #1. I was dying to read his book and now this… Disappointed. Boring, slow paced, characters a bit off. The book was about Kai but Damon stole the scenes because the author decided to create misters around him that he became THE book. Kai was boring, annoying. His darkness? It didn’t feel darkness. I didn’t see what they were talking about him being more unstable and dangerous than maybe Damon. Anyway, this book was a waste.Too many details, the author was dragging to make the book longer and I could cut it to half if I removed the unecessary parts. And Banks? Strong heroine but so boring at times, so slow paced character, it took her almost all book to pick a side. And their romance seemed so off.

I’m just going to wait for Damon’s book and hopefully the series will pick up again.
