RELEASE DAY BLITZ & REVIEW - Poker Face by Melissa Pearl

Poker Face by Melissa Pearl

RELEASE DAY BLITZFebruary 27, 2015

When Caitlyn Davis agreed to work with the FBI, she never imagined it

would lead to her own kidnapping. But her special ability to read people's

emotions and decipher the truth has attracted the unwanted attention of

Santiago Gomez, a rich casino owner who intends to use Caity’s talent

to further his own business.

Eric Shore knew Caity didn't want to break up with him; her scribbled

note left on his bed gave him a snippet of the truth she'd been hiding.

Still reeling from his brush with death and the loss of his beloved

grandfather, Eric throws himself into searching for his girl.

With help from his reemerged father and a rogue FBI agent, Eric follows

a tenuous lead to Las Vegas, not caring that his rescue attempt could

bring him face-to-face with the same man who killed his grandfather and

wants him dead as well.

While Caity fights to survive the horrors of her slavery, Eric is thrust into

a dangerous world that could cost him his life, along with Caity's.



5 out of 5 (exceptional)

I received this book from Mark My Words Book Publicity in return for a fair and honest review.

This is the dramatic conclusion to the Masks series and we are still with Eric and Caity as they try to stay alive. 

This story has drawn me in from the very first book and this one is no different... except that it is darker and more harrowing than the first. Each of these books has been horrible in its own way but this one seems very raw as it is about slavery, being sold and everything that can happen to you once you can no longer claim your body as your own. There is a depth to the writing that says Melissa Pearl certainly did her research for this book, however terrible that may have been. What it also means is that this is a page-turner. You simply have to carry on reading until you have reached the very end, there's just no way you can leave it partway through.

It is fast-paced and well-written, full of action and suspense with menacing characters and other characters who are simply trying to survive. 

I have loved this whole series, not a single book has dropped the ball. Highly recommended for all.


Melissa Pearl was born in Auckland, New Zealand, but has spent much of her life abroad, living in countries such as Jordan, Cyprus and Pakistan... not to mention a nine month road trip around North America with her husband. "Best. Year. Ever!!" She now lives in China with her husband and two sons. She is a trained elementary teacher, but writing is her passion. Since becoming a full time mother she has had the opportunity to pursue this dream and her debut novel hit the internet in November 2011. Since then she has continued to produce a steady stream of books, ranging in genres from Fantasy to Contemporary Romance. She loves the variety and is excited about the books she has coming up in 2015.

"I am passionate about writing. It stirs a fire in my soul that I never knew I had. I want to be the best writer I can possibly be and transport my readers into another world where they can laugh, cry and fall in love."
