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

DEVIL’S NIGHT is returning! Hiding places, chases, and all the games are back…


Buried in the shadows of the city, there’s a hotel called The Pope. Ailing, empty, and dark, it sits abandoned and surrounded by a forgotten mystery.

But you think it’s true, don’t you, Kai Mori? The story about the hidden twelfth floor. The mystery of the dark guest who never checked in and never checks out. You think I can help you find that secret hideaway and get to him, don’t you?

You and your friends can try to scare me. You can try to push me. Because even though I struggle to hide everything I feel when you look at me—and have ever since I was a girl—I think maybe what you seek is so much closer than you’ll ever realize.

I will never betray him.

So sit tight.

On Devil’s Night, the hunt will be coming to you.


You have no idea what I seek, Little One. You don’t know what I had to become to survive three years in prison for a crime I would gladly commit again.

No one can know what I’ve turned into.

I want that hotel, I want to find him, and I want this over.

I want my life back.

But the more I’m around you, the more I realize this new me is exactly who I was meant to be.

So come on, kid. Don’t chicken out. My house is on the hill. So many ways in, and good luck finding your way out.

I’ve seen your hideaway. Time to see mine.

*Hideaway is a romantic suspense suitable for ages 18+. While the romance is a stand-alone, the plot is a continuation of events that began in CORRUPT (Devil’s Night, #1). It is strongly recommended that you have read Corrupt prior to reading this.

Before Hideaway was released, I knew I had to re-read Corrupt. I always get any chance I can to re-read Penelope Douglas’ books! In order to get the full experience of The Devil’s Night series, you need to get in the mood.
As I follow all of Penelope Douglas’ media news, I saw that some people asked if they can skip Corrupt to Hideaway or skip Hideaway to read the third book Kill Switch. I strongly advise you now to skip any! Read Corrupt, the dark and twisted story of how it all started. It’s important to have the background stories straight, and the series is too damn good to overlook. Furthermore, if you feel Corrupt brings more than you can handle, be sure the rest of them will be darker and more twisted.

Penelope Douglas in one of my favorite authors and I always read everything as it is released. Obviously, I re-read again the previous books from the current series. I enjoy being challenged when reading a book, and Penelope does wonders with my imagination.

Corrupt blew my mind and I dived into Hideaway without any expectations, because I honestly did not know what to predict about it.
Kai wasn’t one of the horsemen who caught my attention that often. Michael and Damon were my focus points, and Rika of course. But when you find out more about the struggles Kai faces and then mix up so Banks in it, wow… fireworks!

Kai and Banks are sure on even level. Furthermore, I loved their battle of wills and how she manages to catch him off guard now and then.

I never make mistakes,” I replied. “I’m either right or I’m learning. Jaku niku kyo shoku.” I recited one of the many Japanese sayings he’d spouted over the course of my life. The weak are meat, the strong eat.”

“We’re only ever good, because there are consequences,” I told her. “Take those away, and everyone shows their true self. Kind of like taking off a mask.” “Or putting one on,” she replied. “After all, there’s freedom in hiding, isn’t there?”
