This was my first introduction to Meghan March and I'm seriously kind of pissed that I only just found her as an author. Her writing is clean, flows well, and is engaging - as proven by my reading binge. It's absolutely ridiculous when you consider she's a fairly new (published) author. All the characters are well developed, none of them are perfect, and each of them have very relatable faults. Even the minor characters who are only mentioned and rarely ever make an actual appearance in the stories. Each story is told in the first person narrative jumping between the hero and the heroine's perspective. This allows the reader to gain insight into the characters you normally might not get from a third person narrative.
Each book contains plenty of steamy sex, emotionally charged conflict, and just enough mystery and intrigue to make them your not-so-ordinary contemporary romances. Each can be read as a stand alone book, but why would you want to do that?
Beneath This Mask:
In a reversal of character roles the hero, Simon Duchesne, is the 'good guy' while the heroine, Charlie Stone, is the bad girl. But 'good guy' doesn't mean 'nice guy'. Simon is no push over. He's still an alpha male and doesn't put up with any of Charlie's crap. It definitely makes for an interesting dynamic.One minor point of contention - it would take more than a year to collect the kind of ink Charlie is supposed to have in the story.
Charlie is running from her past, and it isn't pretty at all! She has changed her entire life, including her looks. She's working in a tattoo shop, and when Simon walks into the shop, she had no idea her life would forever change.
Simon is sexy and just perfect. From their first meeting, he felt their connection, and I think I fell for him, too. As much as she wanted him, she knew her past would catch up with her. No matter what, Simon didn't back down. He loved her fiercely, and that's a true man!
As usual, Meghan impressed me so much with another book, and I can't wait to read the next one in this series.
Shel: The story of Charlie and Simon is complicated...mainly by Charlie. She's hiding her identity because of her heinous parents (especially her father) and her father's crimes and while she's done nothing wrong, she isn't quite ready to live under the spotlight and pressure of being his daughter. Because of her new identity, she tends to keep to herself and the few people she's befriended..that is until Simon becomes smitten. As she spends more time with him, she has to make choices about if and when to trust him and there's definitely some push and pull here. To Simon's credit--he's a perfect gentleman and so generous with his patience and time...until he's not. Court: RIGHT! I swooned a lot for swoony, gentlemanly, Simon. SWOONED so hard I almost fell off my bed. Because...he is the quintessential southern gentleman...until he's not in both good and bad ways. Boy has as big a temper as our heroine here, and it is sparks flying and fun watching the two of them try to dominate the other...also in a fun way. But the gloves come off on his being a gentleman when clothes come off...whew. Hot and steamy times ahead, y'all and it was great.
Shel: As the story progressed and we got to know more about these characters, I felt that the pacing and the dialogue and the prose started really coming together. There seemed to be less of the quintessential heroine/hero descriptions and internal monologues--something I noted at the beginning. I also felt the conversations seemed less rushed and the characters seemed more fleshed out than they seemed. Court: You hit the nail on the head, as always, friend. The beginning was the usual meanderings, but the thick of things, and especially the end surprised me. I've been devouring this book at break neck speed ally night...it was insane. After a few initial, awww, moments at the beginning which I surprisingly needed after the end of a long week...this was a really refreshingly good, feel good story...and I really loved it. I CANNOT WAIT TO DEVOUR BOOK TWO!
Shel: By the time we reached the big reveal, I was flipping pages quickly to see exactly how these characters would get their HEA. And having finished it, I definitely want to check out the next book to see where this series goes next. Court: Girl...me too. I mean, the heroes name is Constantine...and he tattoos...and they're both men in uniform, which helps along my yearly challenge numbers quite well. Winning on all counts = Meghan March and this series!
