Unmasking Maya

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 howe. 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 both have some past issues they need to deal with and I enjoyed seeing the layers of the past peeled away One of my favorite scenes is when Maya is walking up a hill in SF in heels and Derek just picks her up and carries her up the hill Another favorite is them rolling down the hill I think it is great when people think out side the box and enjoy some of the simple things in life I think Ms Mercer adds that to her story and some of the unexpected I know I will be looking to read from Ms Mercer as Unmasking Maya really stood out to me It was fresh and original fun read I would recommend this to anyoneJust fyi Unmasking Maya contains two swear words and NO sex

Reviewer MariaSource PublicistMaria s review was first posted on Romancing the Book s blog What do you get when a boho type artistic free spirited woman in San Francisco gets with a nerd from Silicon Valley An inter cultural love story that s what When two very different people come together in our crazy modern scenario there is bound to be conflict galore That is the essence of UNMASKING MAYA a fresh contemporary romance from Libby Mercer who earlier brought us the amazingly exuisite FASHIONING A ROMANCEMaya Kirkwood is a woman with a past She s hiding something She s an ex New Yorker trying to make it as an artistic d cor designer in San Francisco And when she s hired by the Bill Gates like prodigy Derek Whitley to do some d cor improvement in his Merlo Place operations base the sparks don t exactly fly at first It s a slow burn But yes the attraction flares in due course We know that Maya is hiding something and as we go deeper into the story we learn what it is along with Derek himself He s checked up on Maya and he knows by her lack of internet presence that she s definitely hiding somethingThe surprising thing is Derek s hiding something too A something that threatens to become a very big something indeed Perhaps an obstacle in their budding romance Will Maya and the Nerd get it together Will Maya make peace with her shameful past And will Derek make peace with his And move on Do this pair have a future Even if they both come to terms with their backgrounds which made them what they are today even if they manage to get past all that is there really a future in their futureCan a boho artist woman she doesn t even own a computer and a geeky nerdy man really get it together Even if he is a millionaire prodigy Is it even possible Well this is what we read the book to discover I d like to think that they balance each other each one cancelling out the other s deficiencies Or will they drive each other crazy and end up leaving each other in disgust Really you can t know unless you go there can you The writer s job is to take you there and see for yourself Can she do it And can he do it convincinglyThe atmosphere of San Francisco comes through strongly The city is like another character in the novel From Pacific Height to Merlo Place to the eccentrics like the businessman on the unicycle I dare you not to find a little place in your heart for thi city by the time you ve completed reading thisLibby Mercer s writing is sharp perceptive and lucid She writes in crisp contemporary language She literally holds your hand and takes you there She s very much a chronicler of the age I ve noticed her observations in FASHIONING A ROMANCE her last book too I like this juxtaposition of the nerdy with the trendy of the boho with the techno It s definitely something to keep in mind and watch out forAnd again Libby proves that it s possible to make a story sizzle without getting into bed with the main characters That s a rare skill So folks what we have here a sweet romance that sizzles Way to go LibbyFavorite uote I just don t see why this should classify as art He did the air uote thing with his fingers and it took every ounce of will power I had not to slam a stiletto into his kneecaps He turned to me with a neutral expression apparently unaware that he was offending me
