Masquerade of Submission (book review)

banner Masquerade of Submission was written by Carly O'Shea.  It is a contemporary romance with light erotica.  This post was organized by N K Author Services.  I was provided with a copy in exchange for my honest book review.  All opinions are my own.

About the book:

ibookscoverCaitlin was familiar with broken hearts; hers had been shattered years before. She knows what she wants, but is afraid no one will understand. She takes the advice of a friend to try something she’d never attempt on her own, hoping to find the love she so desperately yearns for.

Gavin’s work was the solace filling the empty void in his life. Everyone he knows has found that one person that fills their hearts and lives with all they desire. Everyone but him. He signs up for the service that worked for his best friend in a last ditch effort to give his life purpose.

Two Masques…

One Chance….

Will they take it or let forever slip through their fingers….


My review:

The story between Caitlin and Gavin was really fun.  I love the little twist that they meet in real life... and then unknowingly meet again in masks through the dating service.

I love seeing how Caitlin is such an independent and strong woman in her day to day life as an attorney, and finding that was she really wants in her personal life is a partner... but one that takes complete control in the bedroom.  And I love that Gavin really does seem to be the perfect match for her, since he wants what Caitlin is.  It was a little agonizing reading as they danced around really accepting that the other was exactly matched to them.  But the sexual tension totally made up for it.

The book page says this is volume 1... and I can absolutely see Carly O'Shea creating an entire series based on Anabelle and her dating service.  How fun to match up the clients.  But I know she's overlooking her own perfect match.  That story would be amazing I'm sure.

About the author:

Carly O'Shea grew up in the Pacific Northwest, coming from a small family she was often creating imaginary friends and situations for them to play in. Everything that had happened over time influenced Carly, good or bad, weaving stories in that little notebook.

When she is not writing Carly can be found reading a book in a corner somewhere or her kitchen cooking dinner for her family to enjoy in the Charleston South Carolina sun. However, true to her craft, she is usually writing, earbuds in her ears sitting on the corner of the couch engrossed to the point of ignoring the world around her.

Carly's stories created out of the depth of her imagination, her escape now shared with readers. Her life of continued tragic events and hurts gives the stories she writes a realistic feel, absorbing you into the worlds she creates.
