He loves me, and he doesn’t even know my real name.
The limelight that follows him could expose everything I’m hiding. But even knowing the risks, I can’t force myself to stay away.
I’m going to break his heart, but mine will shatter right along with it.
Will we lose it all when I reveal what’s beneath this mask?
I’m not a huge fan of audiobooks. Narrators’ voices can grate on my nerves, my mind wanders so I have to constantly rewind, and the pacing frustrates me. I can read a book in half the time it takes to listen to one, and if I increase the speed the voices sound even more annoying. Color me surprised then that I enjoyed the Beneath This Mask audiobook so much. The story held my interest and the voice actors are phenomenal.
This is the first full-length Meghan March novel I’ve read, and I must say it’s my favorite work of hers so far. It’s a well-crafted story that hits all the right notes. You’ve got a tough heroine, a strong and determined yet sweet hero, a unique storyline, and plenty of steam heat. Oh, and a dog. I have a soft spot for stories with faithful dogs.
I loved Charlie as the poor little rich girl turned tattooed and pierced bad girl. She has a resiliency that I found appealing. Although she makes some dumb decisions sometimes, at least she owns up to them. It’s hard to find anything to dislike about Simon. He’s unpretentious despite his wealth, and he’s an all-in kind of guy who wears his heart on his sleeve. I found it dead sexy.
The story is set in the fun, colorful city of New Orleans. I only wish Meghan March had incorporated the feeling of the French Quarter even more into the storyline.
All in all, this is an alluring, fun, and spicy read.
