We all have a façade, a concealed mask we wear to portray ourselves to the world.
Fallon’s mask is real, what you see is what you get. Growing up with two loving parents in Chicago, graduating in Chicago, and now working a job she loves, she enjoys her life.
Her untarnished world is shaken when Luca crosses her path.
Luca’s mask is tightly controlled. Distrust, rivalry, and violence rule his life.
When confronted with insecurities, when the one you love wears his mask perfectly, when your life unravels and you don’t know why, do you keep trusting the person you love?
Everyone has a façade. Everyone has an ulterior motive.
A Contemporary Romance/ Romantic Suspense in dual point of view. Contains sexual content and violence.
His gaze is piercing through me. He tilts his head and arcs one brow in silent question, Need any help? I almost imperceptibly nod my head. Mystery man speaks to his company, who’s leaning with his back against the bar. The other guy whips his head around to look at me and is obviously not agreeing with his friend’s intention to intervene. He disregards his friend’s comment and comes over to Nick and me. He walks right up to us to place a secure arm around my waist, tucking me gently into his side and turning slightly, so I’m engulfed in his one arm embrace. His breath strokes over my temple while he speaks. “I’m taking her for a dance.” His deep, throaty voice which exudes sensuality fits him perfectly in his tailored suit. The guy glowers at Nick, daring Nick to defy him. His intimidating stance has Nick backing off instantly, and he leads us both away with his arm firmly holding my middle. I don’t even look back at Nick. My eyes are glued to this man. My mouth quirks up in a smile as he shows me an enthralling sidelong grin. When I’m about to ask his name, he halts. “You’re welcome,” he whispers the words against my ear. And again, he strolls away.
