Excerpt & Giveaway: Hide Me (Silver Strands #1) by Lexi Scott

hide me

Sometimes it’s easier to run…

Ripped apart by guilt and grief, nineteen-year-old Whit Conrad grabs her stuff and runs from her super-conservative home and family in Pennsylvania and hauls ass for sunny California. All she wants is escape. Now she has a craptastic apartment, a job at a tattoo parlour, and even a friend-who’s-mostly-benefits. Then she meets a sexy, inked, surfer-dude who has the potential of capsizing everything…

Deo Beckett is adrift. Underemployed and over-boozing, Deo knows he should be doing something more with his life. Being something more. All it takes is a pin-up hottie with a smart mouth—and a bruised soul—to force Deo to start looking below the surface. To wonder if there’s more to life than being a beach bum. Now he’s falling for Whit…and hard.

But Whit ran from home for a reason, and she’ll go to any lengths to keep Deo from learning the truth…


“Don’t do any of that if you don’t want to.” Her voice is mechanical, and she’s staring at her hands. “No one’s forcing you to be here and do all that.”

I move across the bed, because the pull of her is more than I can resist. She feels so small and fragile in my arms, like she’ll explode into thousands of pieces if I don’t hold onto her. “I want to. But I want you to tell me why you hurt so bad.” I run my hand over her hair, damp from the bath I know my mother made her take. “Tell me.”

“You already know,” she whispers.

“Not from you. I don’t know your story, so I don’t know anything. Tell me.” I pull back to look at her and she jumps at me, her hands and mouth everywhere at once.
