Faced with living under a cloud of suspicion and constant questioning by the FBI, I ran. I’m making a new life in New Orleans as Charlie Stone. I traded my future in New York high finance for tattoos, booze, a few friends who don’t ask questions, and one giant mutt named Huckleberry Finn. Everything is simple and uncomplicated until Simon Duchesne—former hotshot Navy fighter pilot, NOLA’s favorite son, city councilman, and rumored congressional hopeful—walks into my life.
The flashing cameras he attracts threaten to expose everything I’m hiding, but I can’t seem to stay away. Why are the most dangerous ideas always the most seductive?
In trying to get lost, I found myself. And then I found Simon. He loves me, and he doesn’t even know my real name. I’m going to break his heart, but mine will shatter right along with it. This is our story.
Will we be strong enough to face the consequences of revealing what’s beneath this mask?
Meghan March tells a beautiful tale of a young woman running from her past and hiding from having a future… We first meet Charlotte in NYC trying to escape a life that was built on lies, a life that she no longer wants to be a part of. This educated young girl had a life set before her. Working for her father’s company, until the scheming and lies caught up with him, and their world as they knew it would never be the same. So she runs…
Charlie Stone has reinvented herself so far removed from the girl that she was in NYC. She has new purpose in life, staying away from the spotlight and anything related to her past, and trying to build a future much different from what she envisioned. She’s changed everything about herself. Reinvented her look, her attitude and her outlook on life. Charlie is hurting you can see it in everything she does, she pushes away anything that has a potential to be good in her life feeling like she doesn’t deserve it. When Charlie meets Simon shes forced to deal with the past, present and the future.
I absolutely LOVED this book.. Hands down one of the best reads from a new author I’ve read this year. I was gripped from the beginning of the story right up until the end. It will keep you guessing and on your toes, as each chapter seems to bring more drama and intrigue to the story line. Charlie is one strong heroine, even though she doesn’t appear to be in the beginning, in the end she shows the bravery of a thousand soldiers marching into battle. I give this one my full 5 stars! I loved it beginning to end and I highly recommend it.
