After catching her fiancé cheating on their wedding day, interior designer Kylie Edwards swore off high-powered men. But before she can drown herself in wedding cake, she’s dragged to a Vegas romance conference by her friends. At least she’ll be able to meet the hotel’s owner and pitch her new design idea. And maybe attend the elaborate masquerade ball, where business unexpectedly becomes pleasure with the hotel’s oh-so-hot head of security.
Jake Royale's no security guy—he owns the hotel and casino. The masquerade ball gives him the perfect opportunity to drop his high-profile identity and blend in. To be seen as a man, not his money. But when one hot night with Kylie becomes more, Jake knows he’s screwed. Not only will his fake identity cost him the design that will catapult his casino back to the top, it might just cost him the one thing money can't buy...
This a short but quite enjoyable read! Kylie is in Vegas to meet with the owner of the hotel she's staying at for business. She and her friends decide to make the most of the trip and have fun while they're there. Kylie ends up meeting Jake before her meeting with him. Due to a little bit of confusion, she thinks his name is Macon and that he's head of security. When Jake hears her use the wrong name, he doesn't correct her because he wants to see if a girl could like him without knowing who he is. Turns out to be a big mistake because they're falling for each other quick. Will she be able to forgive him for not telling the truth?
Masquerading with the CEO is a quick read but a nice one. It's fun and sweet, plus Kylie and Jake together definitely generates the heat! It's a lighthearted story that has the perfect pace and just the right amount of conflict. Even though some might say it's too short, I say it was just right to tell Kylie and Jake's story. Dawn Chartier brought it and I'm looking forward to more by her!
