Paperback Book: Hidden Under Her Heart (Romance, Coming of Age) Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Product Description(from the author):

Maryanne Torres is a compassionate nurse who fails at relationships. After a string of losers, she swears off sex to land a marrying man. But a party she attends turns into a drinking binge, and she is raped.

Lucas Knight is a biracial athlete intent on winning the Ironman Triathlon. He finds Maryanne the next morning bloody and unconscious. Since Maryanne cannot identify her attacker, he becomes the prime suspect.

When Maryanne finds herself pregnant, she plans to abort, but the identity of her rapist is hidden in the baby's DNA.

A trap is set. Lucas races to clear his name, but the secret Maryanne hides threatens to drown their chance for true love.
[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.]



Wow! That is all the words I have about this book! From the time I picked this book up, I could not put it down. This story captures the reader in such a way you lose yourself in the story. 

Hidden Under Her Heart, by Rachelle Ayala,was such an amazing book to me. I am so lucky I got the opportunity to review such a touching book. Rachelle is such an amazing author and portrayed the characters in a very great way.

The book deals with racism and abortion which are both tough topics to write/ talk about. However, Rachelle does an amazing job of expressing these topics throughout the story. At times in this book, I found myself crying because of how close I felt I became to the characters. 

I really liked seeing into the world of competetive athletes as I was never a huge competitive person. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to all my readers!

Hidden Under Her Heart  is available in both paperback ($9.99) and Kindle ($0.99) formats.  You can connect with author Rachelle Ayala on Facebook and Twitter I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
