Conceal by Ava Harrison - ARC Review & Blog Tour

I ran.
Escaped the man who wanted to hurt me. 
I got in my car and drove. 
No destination. No direction. No help.
I hid in the one place I would never be found. 
Now in New York with no job, I didn’t know what to do. 
Then I met him. 
Jaxson Price. 
The enigmatic devil, who wasn't only above the law, but played it like a puppet.
He might be the answer to all my problems. 
Too bad he's asking for something in return for his help… 
My heart.

I can't lie.  At the beginning of this book, I struggled a little with it.  I didn't really feel engaged in it until about 20% in, and I connected with Willow before I texted with Jaxson.  It's a slow burn, friends to lovers, but I wasn't really feeling the connection between them.  I did, however, believe in the genuineness of the friendship.  And, well, by the end of the book, the importance of the beginning, of them having the friendship and genuinely liking one another, was clear.

But, then there was a part in this that was worthy of being a cliffhanger (don't worry, it's not) and all of a sudden I was totally drawn in to the story.  I was engaged, I felt for both of them.  Willow for the things she was trying to put behind her, and escape from and Jaxson for the expectations he was trying to rise above.

By the end, I loved their connection and I think I want to read this one again, to really pay attention to the character and wold building at the beginning that seem even more important once I know where the story is going. 

I enjoyed and recommend this title.
