Beneath this Mask by Meghan March
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 finished this book with tears in my eyes and a smile on my face! Charlie and Simon are both amazing characters, and the author did an unbelievable job making sure the reader really got to know them both. This is the first book in the Beneath series, and what an introduction! I was hooked right from the beginning, and the action and intrigue didn’t slow down until the end.
Charlie began as an innocent who was betrayed by the ones closest to her. She runs away to hide, and in the process finds herself. Simon is a golden boy who has secrets of his own. A chance meeting throws them together, and Simon is hooked. He is so confident about what he wants with Charlie right from the beginning, and Charlie fights him every step of the way! Their story is an eclectic mix of sweet and sad. The reader is kept wondering about how a happy ending could even be possible.
I love how unapologetic Charlie is about who she is. I hate how she feels like she is responsible for the actions and misdeeds of others. I’m glad she found her place and made her own “family”.
I love how steadfast and unwaveringly supportive Simon is. I love how he manages to turn something bad from his past into an amazing endeavor.
This was a superb story, and I can’t wait to dive into the next one!
