I liked this a lot. It was steamy, which I always like. It was short, which I was in the mood for. And best of all, it was FREE, the awesomeness of which needs no further explanation. The story line was decent and the writing was great. The scenes flowed along well and all of the dialogue was very smooth and natural. I will definitely read the next one in the series. My only "problems" with the book are personal pet peeves, so take them with a grain of salt.Alexis. She kind of annoyed me. Her at [...]
Holy HOTNESS is all I can say about this novella. Man I love a man in uniform anyways. There is something hot about a man willing to lay down his life for his country that makes a girl go weak in the knees. Plus the way Selena tells this story has me wanting more and when I found out book one in this series is out I had to buy it so now I just need to get some time and read it because I need me some more romance stories in my life.In this story we get to meet Gabe who is a soldier in Afghanistan [...]
I've read tons of novellas, and this was one of the best. Selena does an excellent job painting the perfect picture of the Afghan desert and the perils the main characters (Gabe and Alexis) face. The story is well-developed and the characters layered. I loved it. Selena's an author to watch, peeps. Don't miss the companion novel "Concealed" that goes with "Camouflaged".
Selena Laurence is the reason I made my perfect romance bookshelf over at . I adored Hidden and I could not wait to get my hands on the next book in the Hiding From Love Series. I was able to read an ARC of Camouflaged and *sigh* – absolutely amazing. Definitely another book that is going on my perfect romance shelf. We have Gabe, the hot guy in uniform, the player, God’s gift to women. He knows what he wants and he doesn’t give the illusion that he is wanting to stick around for more. Gab [...]
Camouflaged continues Laurence's Hiding From Love series (though it is technically a prequel), and tells the story of Gabe Thompson. While Nick (Hidden) was sent stateside after an incident, Gabe, his best friend, is still in Afghanistan finishing up his second tour of duty. Gabe's always been the player, the proverbial man who runs away from commitment. But, as with any playboy in romanceland, this changes as he begins to fall for Alexis Garcia, the UN volunteer he is assigned to show around th [...]
Camouflaged by Selena Laurence is a military novella. The whole story takes place in Afghanistan. There are at an undisclosed military camp. Gabe enlisted because his friend Nick enlisted. Now Nick's out and Gabe is still in. Gabe meets Alexis, a UN volunteer from University of Texas, Austen Texas with a UN sanctioned group bringing supplies for native Afghanis. They meet over a harrowing circumstance. They are attracted to each other but Alexis fights it making Gabe want her all the more. When [...]
Gabe he's just so cocky, "oh, sweetheart, you don't know me too well. Ask around. You'll find there's a whole lot of things I can do that would interest you. Things that would help you relax." I liked being in his mind, "oh yeah, I thought as I strode out of the tent. We had a lot of unfinished business, and I was just the entrepreneur to handle the transaction." Alexis she's feisty, "do you ever stop?" she asked, her voice rising. "Do you ever stop and think about the other person in the equati [...]
Wonderfully surprised by Camoflaged. Selena Laurence grabs you from the first paragraph and pulls you into Gage and Alexis' story which keeps you interested until the very end. A fabulous short story to pick up to pass a few hours. Gage is that cocky, arrogant soldier who thinks he knows what women wants. Enter Alexis, part of a UN contingent and suddenly, Gage's charms no longer work. It's not that Alexis isn't interested, she just doesn't like cocky, arrogant men. Of course, fate would make su [...]

Young love, captured perfectlyWhat a great novella! Selena Laurence captured the essence of new, young love. Set in the backdrop of the war in Afghanistan, which was exciting, scary, and so tense at times. Selena beautifully honors the dangers faced by servicemembers, and developed a sweet, engaging love story. Bravo!
ARC given in exchange for an honest review. Excerpt:“You do realize,” I said, “that this is a mil-i-tary base, right? I mean, you’re surrounded by people with guns. We shoot if we have to, and a lot more often we get shot at. This is the Army, sweetheart,not a freaking hippie peace rally.”She looked down at the ground for a second, and I expected her to apologize. Instead, her head popped up, and I stared into the face of fury. Her brows were drawn down into a scowl, her luscious lip [...]
It was sad, but a fact of life in this country—the women were at the mercy of the men, and often the men were anything but merciful.Gabe is a soldier, stationed in Afganistan. He has a sexual relationship with a local widow, Natalya. As a widow with no husband to support her, Natalya is forced into a life of prostitution. While Gabe is completely up-front with her, that all he wants is sex, she grows to love him. Gabe cares for her. You can see it in his jealousy of her other men—in how he t [...]
You gotta go read this people - 5 Outstanding stars!"I'm not that guy. I never will be. I'm like my old man and his old man before him. We don't rescue people. We aren't nice guys. We don't fall in love."Oh Selena. Selena, Selena, Selena. This is quite possibly the BEST EVER NOVELLA I've had the pleasure (and honour) of reading. It has the right amount of angst, tension, action, sweetness and heart-stopping moments. "I usually go balls-to-the-wall for what I want"We meet Gabe in Hidden (Click to [...]
CLICK HERE TO READ THIS ENTIRE REVIEW!!!!!!What I Love About This Book: So I honestly didn’t know what to expect when reading this prequel and I was honestly pleasantly surprised. I’m always hesitant to read authors I haven’t really heard tons about and I didn’t really look to see the reviews before I got into this but the novella was great! I thought the sentence structures were awesome and the character development was pretty good considering this is a novella, there was no skimping on [...]
This book did not disappoint! I Loved it!!!Camouflaged takes place in Afghanistan where Gabe meets Alexis, who is there as a volunteer to do aid work for the United Nations. Alexis presents herself as one tough cookie who won't let a player like Gabe seduce her, but whether she wants to admit it or not, she weakens a bit to his charm. Gabe has been assigned to watch out for Alexis and escort her as she fulfills her duties as a volunteer. But suddenly Gabe is in a position where he must protect A [...]
You know how I always go on about how I don't like novella's, well this is one I can definitely can get behind. It might help that it's over a hundred pages long and it was so easy to connect with these two main characters.Gabe is definitely a confident, borderline arrogant player. He looks amazing, has some serious skills and the boy knows it and uses it. Serious is not his game, but it seems that most woman don't mind as long as they can have a little piece of him.Alexis though is not impresse [...]
***I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.***Gabe Thompson had me from the first page of Camouflaged!!! He's an incredibly hot, sexy soldier deployed to Afghanistan who knows how to please a woman and have her coming back for more. He will give them his body but never his heart. All that changes when he meets UN volunteer Alexis Garcia. These two are complete opposites. She can't stand a egotistical, womanizing man. So, you can imagine her first impression of Gabe when he refers to h [...]
I received a copy of this book (along with the other books in this series so far) from the author in exchange for honest reviews.This is technically the first book in the author's Hidden series but I am not sure if it was written first or not. Either way, this book is the story of Gabe and Alexis and their time together in Afghanistan. And what a story it is!Gabe is a deceptively simple, young, man-whore who is in Afghanistan on his second tour of duty. He and his best friend Nick had signed up [...]
I received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest reviewI really enjoyed this book, Selena does a fantastic job building the characters and the story line so that you’re sucked in from page one. This book starts before her other book Hidden, and gives you a better understanding about Gabe. You really see a completely different side of Gabe that you never would have expected. Gabe Thompson is known as a major playboy, and why wouldn’t he be? He’s gorgeous, an American Soldier and fantastic i [...]
“We don’t have a future, Natalya. I’m not going to marry you and take you back to the States, so either sex is okay or it’s not. Your choice.”6% into Camouflaged I had to say to myself, “Well, hot da*n!” This guy Gabe sure does not bite his tongue. I had to applaud his honesty, but boy I felt sorry for Natalya who was living in subpar conditions and really thought that this American soldier would take her away from her native land, Afghanistan.Enter Alexis. She is a young woman tha [...]
I’m not a huge fan of romance novels… at least not the old school version where the same old story is rehashed over and over again. BORING! That being said, I am a total sucker for a good love story with a fresh perspective and dare I say lots of sex! If you are romance novelist that is looking to draw in a reader like me the perfect combination is a modern storyline. If you are looking to sweeten the pot, highlight a member of our armed forces in Afghanistan. Yeah, I’m one of those… I L [...]
Posted on Les Romantiques - Le forum du siteReviewed by FabiolaReview Copy from the AuthorThis is the second book I’ve read by this author. It’s her third published novel. Besides I should read her first opus, a contemporary whose synopsis I like.Once again we are here in her NA universe and we meet again Gabe Harrison, a secondary character seen in Hidden. The series is named Hidden from love, and while this story has just been published, Camouflaged is its first volume.It’s a short story [...]

She hates that Gabe flirts with her and doesn't respect the fact that she has a boyfriend back home that she is devoted to.Yet when an event puts their lives in danger will [...]
God bless . I love finding gems like Camouflaged for free download while browsing. It's only a novella, but there is a sequel so I have hope.In comparison to a lot of the new adult I've been reading lately, Camouflaged has real depth. The novella is set in war-torn Afghanistan and the U.S. military base(s?) there. Gabe is an American soldier serving his second tour. Alexis is a UN volunteer there to distribute supplies to the poor Afghan citizens. From the first moment they meet, Alexis and Gabe [...]
Sergeant Gabe Thompson enlisted with his best friend Nick Carlisle and on his second tour of duty in Afghanistan. Gabe isn't counting the days, weeks, hours, or seconds for no reason right. Gabe is known as player and charmer when it comes to woman. Gabe doesn't have Nick to back his play any more since he returned State side. UN Human Rights inspectors enter the camp two days later, Gabe is assigned Alexis Garcia as escort. Gabe is warned by his CO not to screw up or around his charge. Alexis i [...]
Once again, I’ve had the pleasure of receiving an ARC of a Selena Laurence gem. Camouflaged is the prequel to Selena’s book, Hidden. I loved Gabe in Hidden so I’ve been curious about his back story. My curiosity has been quenched, but now I have a new problem.I need Gabe to have his happy ending! What he goes through in his life is not a clichéd tragic childhood. But it’s not a sitcom with the perfect upbringing either. And it’s sad when a strong man is so held back by actions of the [...]
This was a free novella I picked up on . At 124 pages, it has a full story arc, but it ends on a CLIFFHANGER!!!! Which, of course, made me go purchase the whole series in a box set because I just had to read it all!I wasn't too sure about Gabe at first because he was such an asshole. But he showed some great character growth throughout the story, and by the end I started to wonder if he really could change for the better. Alexis was young and naïve, and Gabe was NOT what she needed. I also worr [...]
I was sucked into this story from the first page! Gabe is in the US Army and doesn't seem to do relationships! He is a more of a casual sex and then leave kind of guy. Alexis is in Afghanistan with the UN on a humanitarian mission~ and she winds up with Gabe as her escort around the war torn towns. One day while on a trip into town, they get ambushed During that time, they are together for 3 days with little food, water and shelter~ in spending time with each other the feelings that they obvious [...]
I really enjoyed this short little novella. Gabe is the hot play boy out on tour in the Army in Afghanistan. His latest booty call is getting serious in the beginning of the book and he just can't have that. He is upfront with all the women he has sex with, but when they get attached, they got to go. When he meets UN volunteer Alexis, he thinks she is hot and he is looking for his next no strings relationship, but she is not having his seduction techniques. After, he gets enlisted as her chapero [...]
Testosterone levels and their female counterparts run high in this erotic spoof in the Afghan desert. Despite the cheesy dialog this is a pretty good book. When the story strays from its primary theme of lust, it explores the realities of war, raising it above many of the novels of a similar ilk. When their sexual thoughts and actions occasionally come up for air one can almost feel the blazing heat of desert days and the freezing cold of Afghan nights (in other words there is actually a story h [...]
