Unmasking Maya by Libby Mercer
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 headquarters of a hot new tech company. 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, however, 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?
Libby Mercer brings us a story full of interesting characters all with hidden secrets that will keep you guessing until the very end. (Due to the secrets of the characters I don’t want to go into too much detail for fear of spoiling the plot)
Read about feisty Maya and her relationship with Derek, discover things about them as they banter with each other. My favourite characters were definitely those two and Inez.
Derek was the man with hidden depths and it was great learning more about him as the story went on. He and Maya worked well together as a duo since Maya is a complex character.
Inez though was the character that stood out the most, she’s a great support to Maya, a true friend. This book just gets better the further you get into the story, it pulls you in and keeps you hooked.
Its a fantastic feel-good book.
