Book Review: Not Hiding (Parker Siblings #3) by Leigh Ann Lunsford




Title: Not Hiding (Parker Siblings #3)
Author: Leigh Ann Lunsford
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:

Cambree Parker has finally flown the nest and headed off to college in a different state, truly alone for the first time. Trying to escape from her sisters shadows, she runs from the lies and deceit that have plagued her family for years, and from the boy who stole her heart and shredded it in the process. Once there, she realizes her freedom is not all she hoped it would be. She misses her family, thinks of Max daily, and when she decides she wants to take control, she is attacked, leaving her family to fear for their safety. Can she protect her heart and remain safe when the source of her heartache has taken up permanent residence by her side?

Max Baird knew he messed up. His guilt over Cambree being attacked makes him doubt if he is good enough for her. He just knows he can’t walk away. She has told him she hates the lies, but the one he is keeping can blow her family apart, and he doesn’t know if she will ever forgive him. He has seen his share of sorrow and heartbreak, but he refuses to allow Cambree to suffer at his hands anymore. He will prove to her they can work. Hopefully he isn’t too late.

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

Great, I have a better chance of having sex in a hammock, standing up, than I will trying to thwart her plan.”

“I can’t sing worth a damn, and she has actually asked me to stop singing in the shower because it scares her dog, but I swear I can jam out in the shower.”

“I would kick you in the vagina, but I am afraid I’d lose my shoe.”

“You are proof that evolution can go in reverse if you think that shit is going to fly.”

“Nope, been there, done that.  Got that t-shirt, and that shit doesn’t fit anymore,”
  
My Review:

The third in the series and the writing just gets better and better, I thought for sure she would have run out of naughty and pithy sayings by now.  This family is full of drama, frenetic energy, quick wits, smart mouths, chaotic pranks and outings, deep passion, and a long history family disappointments and heartbreak.  The only complaint I have about Leigh Ann Lunsford is that her cliffhangers are evil.  I have only one more book remaining before I have finishing the series, and am feeling horrible about it, I am terribly conflicted… I am looking forward to it and dreading it all at the same time.  I want to know what happens yet don’t want my adventure with the Parkers to end.
