Blog Tour Stop: Beneath this Mask by Meghan March

My name is Charlotte Agoston, and I’m a runner. Not the ‘let’s go for a jog and slap a 26.2 sticker on your bumper’ kind of runner; I’m the kind of runner who takes off when her father is staring down the barrel of a guilty verdict that carries a 175-year sentence for perpetrating the largest fraud in the history of the world. That’s right. Bernie Madoff was an amateur compared to Alistair Agoston.

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?

4 stars

Beneath this Mask is such a great read. The characters, especially the heroine, Charlie, is fantastic. She's strong, stubborn and just wanting to make things right. And I love her relationship with her dog!

Charlie (aka Charlotte) is fleeing NYC in order to get away from the media circus of  her family's drama. Her father is sent away to prison for fraud and her life and her parents life are in the limelight. 

She heads to New Orleans for a new life, as a new girl. She changes her appearance, far from the NYC socialite look. She's tatted with crazy hair. She lands a job at a tattoo parlor and then she meets Mr. Yuppy himself, Simon. Those are her first impressions. 

But Simon Duchesne is not to be judged by his look or social status. And Charlie soon finds that out. Simon is immediately falls for Charlie. There's something about  her that he is drawn to her. But having all the insecurities and past dramas in her life, Charlie pushes and keeps pushing Simon away. But Simon isn't the type of guy who begs, but he'll be there always for Charlie. 

These two had such a great connection. And it took time and some Simon hotness to breakdown the walls that Charlie built and her facade. Beneath this Mask is filled with plenty of steam, angst and lots of misunderstandings. But having a nice HEA for these two, made me want more.

And I can't wait for the next book in this series.

Case in point: she read the entire romance section of her small town public library by age fourteen. Even after growing up (sort of) and getting a law degree, she never lost her passion for a great story, twisty plot, epic romance, and amazing characters. When she’s not writing, she’s probably reading, target shooting, drooling over fast cars, playing with her crazy mutt, or hanging with her very own sexy bad boy.
