The Lovely Things They Say

There’ve been a lot of great things about the experience I’ve had with Hidden. I loved writing the story, I loved working with my editor Kristen Anders (, I had a ton of fun finding photos of Nick and Lyndsey for the cover, I adored working with my formatter, Amy Atwell (, and on and on. But, without a doubt, the absolute best thing about this book has been the responses people have given about it. I have been flooded with reviews and messages from people about how much they like this book and how much they’re looking forward to the next in the series. And that? Is fantastic, y’all.

So, I thought I’d first of all say THANKS. Thanks to every one of you who took the time to read the book, and especially to review the book. I truly appreciate any thoughtful review, whether glowing or otherwise, and I’ve loved seeing all the things you had to say about this story.

In honor of your many wonderful comments, I’ve decided to put some of them here so more people can read them. Those of you who review deserve a little promo too! So, here’s to the lovely things they say. Cheers!

“This is a relationship not to be missed. The story is believable and beautiful. You fight, pray and hope for Lyndsey and Nick as they learn to love, trust and believe in themselves all over again. I could not put this book down, wanting to learn more about their pasts and seeing how it affects their new relationship. The story is believable and beautiful.” ~5 STARS, Nancy.

“Selena Laurence has written a beautiful love story that encompasses forgiveness and healing. Her characters are real. They have flaws and hurts and pasts that suck you in.” ~4 STARS, Mandy, Raw Books reviews

I loved every minute of this book and didn’t want it to end.” ~5 STARS, Angela

I really enjoyed this book, in particular Selena’s writing style – it flowed really well and was easy to read. The characters were well developed and believable. Nick was the kind of guy that any girl would love to fall in love with – hot, sweet, thoughtful and very caring. I enjoyed the journey that he and Lyndsey took, together and separately, to heal themselves and find a way to come together.” ~ 4 STARS Tamara, Hook Me Up Book Blog

Hidden is delightful summer read, that will take you on a sweet journey to Hawaii and warm your heart with charming romance.” ~ 4 STARS, Patrycja, Smokin’ Hot Book Blog

It gave me those heart fluttering moments when you see two people on the verge of finding happiness, where they have those intense moments where they almost do but they don’t… and you’re screaming inside for them to just get it on!!!!” ~ 3.5/4 STARS, Surj, Hopeless Romantic Book Blog

I loved the mix between humor and emotion. The two are well handled by Selena: we really laugh and we really cry while reading the novel.” ~ 4 STARS, Fabiola, Les Romantiques book blog

This story is amazing. It will pull you in from the very first page and will keep you there until the end.” ~ 5 STARS, Mary

FOUR SOLID, BREATH-OF-FRESH-AIR STARS! I loved that this books offered more than the usual boy-meets-girl story. There was more and that more was a really great romance, with a glimpse on real life situations and the thrill of a twist that makes you want to read faster to know what happened and also to read slower to savor the story.” ~ 4 STARS, Autumn

I loved this book! It was so well written and the characters were perfect. This was such an emotional book to read but there was a wonderful love story throughout!” ~ 5 STARS, Michelle

I could have kept going, but blog posts are supposed to be short, so I’ll quit there. Again, thank you, from the bottom of my romance writing heart. You all made my whole year. ❤
