Defamed, Disgraced and Displaced…
Fresh from a career-killing scandal, New York fashion girl, Maya Kirkwood, arrives in San Francisco to reinvent herself as a fine artist. She’s offered the opportunity to create an installation at the Silicon Valley headquarters of a hot new tech company. Fabulous, right?
Not so much.
She can’t stand Derek Whitley – wunderkind software genius and CEO of the company. Hot as he may be on the outside, inside the man is a cold, unemotional, robotic type. Way too left-brained for her right-brained self.
As Maya and Derek get to know each other, however, their facades begin to crack. She catches her first glimpse of the man behind the superhuman tech prodigy, and he starts to see her as the woman she used to be. But is this a good thing? Once that last secret is revealed, will it bring them closer together or will it tear them apart?
Thank you to the author Libby Mercer, for sending me a copy to review before the release date. I loved this book, it has everything. The secrets keep you guessing, and the build up as Maya and Derek get to know each other is fantastic. I was sad to finish it, but in a good way. You really get to know Maya the main character and some of the situations she’s in is quite funny. She can be quite feisty, speaking her mind which I love. I read it really quickly and was left wanting more. Unmasking Maya is a fascinating page turner where you’ll find yourself warming to the characters. It’s really well written with great attention to detail – I couldn’t put it down. Make sure you get yourself a copy when this is released on the 15th December – for me it’s a must read.
