Rachel Stone is stuck, contemplating that very question. Spending her time as a bartender in an isolated West Virginia town, she hides behind dark hair and an assumed name. She exists from day to day, trying not to let her past overwhelm her.
When a tall stranger walks into the bar at closing time, her attempts at hiding turn to dust. Muscled and intense, he is attractive enough for Rachel to ignore her instincts and listen to her baser desires. As a storm brews in the skies of West Virginia, confusion builds in Rachel’s mind.
What begins as flirtation explodes into a darker, more primal passion, leading her to question everything she thought she knew.
While snow blankets the outside world, they are forced to remain inside, confronting their demons and the sizzling attraction between them. Submitting to their urges is easy; learning who to trust is anything but.
This 30,000 word novella contains references to past abuse and rough, consensual sex.

Halfway Hidden begins with us seeing Rachel working at a bar. She's been there for a while, and one night a stranger comes into the bar. He seems to come from the same place she does, and she can tell just by looking at him that he has lots of secrets hidden. The thing is after her first reaction to him she soon finds herself completely drawn to him no matter the danger. She never realized how much her life would change again after meeting him.
I have to say I wasn't a huge fan of this book. It is a majorly short story, and I just couldn't get into it. At first I thought it was interesting but then once I learned more it just got slightly boring. Then the ending just leaves us completely hanging with the story way incomplete. So this isn't my cup of tea, but for others it may be. It has major sex situations in it. And a very damaged woman with a past she's hiding from.
