A small-town girl with trust issues. A Hollywood super star with one hell of a reputation.A picture perfect ending? Or will it be nothing but trouble in Paradise? As Hollywood’s biggest star, Dean Harrison is known for dating his co-stars. It’s a reputation he’s determined to shake. With big aspirations, he’s ready to be taken seriously for his acting—not his sex life. Which is exactly why he needs to keep his new gorgeous co-star at arm’s length. No matter how she makes his heart pound.
Plucked from her boring life, Phoebe Flynn is given the opportunity of a life time to star in this year’s blockbuster hit. Very much aware of Dean’s reputation, Phoebe wants nothing to do with him when the cameras stop rolling. She’ll earn her success on her own terms, thank you very much. The only problem? The more she gets to know him, the faster she starts to fall. Despite his resolve to stay away, Dean can’t fight his feelings, and he’ll do whatever it takes to prove that he wants more than fame. He wants her. But Phoebe doesn’t know what to believe. Is she just another conquest on his way to the top? Or can she really trust him and her heart?

HIDDEN IN THE SAND by Elena Aitken

Eileen's Thoughts

Hidden in the Sea by Elena Aitken, book three in her Destination Paradise series was a wonderful story of two people connecting through magnetism and chemistry but one struggles with trust issues while the other has a reputation he would like to transform.


Hollywood star, Dean Harrison is known more for dating his co-stars than his acting ability; something he wants to change. Dean is more than ready to taken seriously for his acting as he has some major aspirations. It is for this reason he needs to keep his new, beautiful, co-star at arm’s length; no matter how attractive and drawn to her he is.

Discovered while working in an ice cream store, Phoebe Flynn gets the opportunity of a lifetime, to star in this year’s next blockbuster hit; being filmed in Panama. Aware of Dean’s reputation with his co-stars, Phoebe wants nothing to do with him once the cameras stop filming. She is determined to earn her success on her own terms and ability, unlike Dean’s previous co-stars who gained from connecting with him.

However, the more they get to know each other, away from the cameras, the more their feelings for each other grow. Dean wants to prove to Phoebe he wants more than the fame, yet, at the same time he wants her. Phoebe is so confused, not knowing what to believe; that she is another stepping stone to the top or to trust him with her feelings and her heart. Now for them to figure out if there will be a picture perfect ending for these two or will there be nothing but trouble in Paradise.


Ms. Aitken wrote a wonderful and amazing story, filled with magnetic attraction, sizzling chemistry, pleasurable interactions, beautiful and descriptive scenery, and charming secondary characters that is not to be missed. Seeing the personal growth of Dean and Phoebe as they struggled with their goals and desires made this an enjoyable read.  I totally enjoyed and highly recommend Hidden in the Sea to other readers.
