Unmasking Maya

Ver 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 Originally posted at Book HarbingerTextile artist Maya Kirkwood is going incognito After leaving a successful life in New York City she s trying to reinvent herself while laying low She s overjoyed when up and coming Unisco CEO Derek Whitley shows up at her exhibition Maya would like than anything to move out of her grubby studio flat and graduate from her frozen burrito and ramen noodle diet But when he openly mocks her work how can she accept the UNISCO commission Returning to her apartment makes the decision all too clear and when she begins work on her installation at UNISCO headuarters she catches glimpses of a different Derek the toned tanned good looking man behind the nerdy tech fa ade a man she falls for But while Maya is busy hiding career threatening secrets of her own will Derek s cold pride manic ambition and closet skeletons kill any future for the two of themA few months ago Libby Mercer contacted me to review her second book UNMASKING MAYA which she self published Although I consider all review reuests sent my way I can t accept very many Mercer and the setup for UNMASKING MAYA impressed me immediately and I knew I had to take a chance on this contemporary romance That I wished I would ve picked it up sooner makes this little book all the rarer I want to apologize to Libby for not reading it sooner because it was a pleasure to read and I hope my review will encourage other ereaders to head over to and download it immediatelyI should say that at under 150 pages UNMASKING MAYA is closer to a novella and the length constitutes my only complaint Mercer writes the classic hate to love romance well and I found the pairing of a young Mark Zuckerberg type CEO and a textilefashion artist two people who by nature conflict very engaging Maya and Derek s biting banter and loaded interactions were fun and entertaining to read Maya also befriends Lin one of the lone females at Unisco and I laughed audibly at their exchange when Lin finds out Maya doesn t own a computer I can t send you the JPEGs myself because I don t have a computer Both Lin and Dina halted in their tracks and stared up at me with a mixture of horror and disbelief in their eyes What do you mean you don t even have a compute Lin asked How is that even possible in this day and age Dina wanted to know It was all I could do to keep from cracking up in giggles I was so different from the two of them Sure it would have been nice to have a computer but it s not as if I had to cope without indoor plumbing or something I assumed a grave expression and said I know It s not easy to get through the day with the cold sweats and everything And the shakes I get at night are the worst Maya s uick wit is responsible for several other humorous moments in the book Her many life dramas may be far fetched at times for some readers but her calm level headed way of dealing with them counteracted any complaints on my end There is definitely enough material here for both Maya and Derek to be explored in depth including a side plot about Maya s father reappearing in her life I m not finding fault with the length other than I liked Maya Derek and Lin so much I wanted UNMASKING MAYA is a comfort read sweet light and easy to read I would definitely recommend this to fans of novellas chick lit or light contemporary romance As for me I will be going straight to Mercer s backlist Stepbrother Dearest their facades begin Mystery in Spiderville to crack She catches her first glimpse of

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 headuarters of a hot new tech company MORE CHICKLIT THAN ROMANCE AND THAT S A GOOD THING 45 STARSAlthough this is a sweet romance the whole feel was chicklit for me which was great as I don t read romance books I loved the Silicon Valley side to it which made me laugh as I used to work for an IT company in Santa Ana CA even though I live in Scotland The techno jargon had me realising Ms Mercer had either worked in IT unlikely or had thoroughly done her research most likely Unmasking Maya cut through the stereotypes that everyone who works in IT is a geek and a nerd I can confirm that Derek is no geek Right from the start he struck me as someone I would like to go out with even though he was a workaholic probably cos I am one myself The chemistry between the love interests was almost tangible from the get go I particularly liked how I was reintroduced to San Francisco my joint favourite city in the US with NYCThe gradual blossoming of the relationship was great to see unfold although I found myself wanting to tell them to wake up and smell the coffee Clearly they fancied each other There was also uite a lot of comedy in the novel even right from the beginning when Maya s work is criticised and she introduces herself by another name to avoid embarrassment not realising it will have repercussions later Like Maya I myself many years ago found myself falling for someone who hitherto had infuriated the hell out of me so it was a wee bit like a trip down memory laneI also enjoyed the allusions to a dark secret in Maya s past and in fact there were two which actually were interlinked and as a result had impact I kept wondering what it was but the author kept this to herself until uite late on finally revealing pieces to us bit by bitFinally I enjoyed the friendship between Maya and the techno geeks and the turning point at the company BBVery well written with few errors a real breath of fresh airMy only complaint is I would have liked it to be longer with some of the subplots being delved into deeply But it s aimed at the Romance market which is generally shorter novels It s just me I like to get to know the characters as much as possible and I don t like to leave themWhat I would point out is that it s a short novel around 50K words I look forward to reading by this author and have since bought her first novel Fashioning A RomanceI read this novel in 2 days probably in 3 4 hours It had me hooked

    Unmasking Maya was such a fantastic read for me It was a different read for me I loved that Ms Mercer created Maya and Derek and they both have issues and I would not have thought they would get together But as they say opposites attract I also love that I get inside the mind of an artist and see how a techy guy can be geeky but is not always a nerd And hey some nerds ie Derek is a hottie Maya and Derek do b
