Cole Matthews hasn’t seen his childhood friend, McKnley Rhodes, for twenty-two years, and what he finds shocks him. She’s tired and beaten down, and he wants to fix that, just as he used to when they were kids. Cole’s the only one who can see she’s putting on an act by embracing her rock star persona. His new goal is to determine why and put an end to her torment.
Will McKnley let him in or will he leave her with no place to hide?

vital to my life as writing is. I even majored in it at university. It was one
of the hardest things I’ve ever done, besides publish a book, but I loved it.
So when it came to writing, it was only natural it would find its way in there
Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale (see the resemblance?). I first saw Halestorm in
concert in December 2015. Lzzy blew me away and I knew right then I wanted to
create a character that encompassed her awesomeness. I hope McKnley fits this
bill. But more than that, I wanted to write a book that was filled with as much
passion for music (and bike racing) that I am.
to Hide is a playlist I’ve compiled. All those songs are relevant to the
characters and story. However only one encompasses No Place to Hide perfectly. That song is called My Heart I Surrender by I Prevail. It’s
a tale of someone wondering about someone they used to know, used to love.
They’re just like Cole. They wonder if they’ll ever be with the person they love,
if they’ll ever be enough but know that no matter what, their heart belongs to
the person from their past.
both had pretty rough childhoods with less than perfect parents. Naturally, that
influences any adult relationship they have. For McKnley in particular, it’s
something she finds incredibly difficult to overcome. But this song shows the
depth of the other person’s devotion, of the faith they have that someday
they’ll be together.
I don’t know how many times I’ve listened to
this song, but it’s up there! I love it and I don’t think I could find a more
perfect song that describes No Place to
Hide. So take a listen and then read the book, you won’t be disappointed!
