3.5 Stars! Second book in the Masquerade series but can be read as a standalone!

I enjoyed this book. It didn’t WOW me, but the author has created characters that are memorable. She also has a smooth, fluent writing style. I absolutely do not like reading books with love triangles and though this book had one, I just couldn’t tear my eyes from the page. Something compelled me to keep reading. I’m attributing it to the author’s writing.

The book begins with an 18 year-old Darby finding out she is

Beautiful Liar is the second installment in Glenna Maynard’s the Masquerade series. I LOVED this book. Again the author has written a real feeling story with genuine characters, humor and hot sex. The sex scenes in this book were intense, and left me saying whoa! There are other times I found myself laughing at loud. Now to the meat of the story, there are big decisions to be made by our heroin. Darby has a whopper of a secret. When life is telling her to fix her mistakes not everything goes as ...more

My full review is on my blog today and so is the blog tour!

Beautiful Liar is the second book in the Masquerade series but it is not a follow in series as such as each story is a connection to the Masquerade clubs. Therefore each can be read as standalone.

This story centres on Darby who with her boyfriend, Brody, have the rest of their lives planned down to the last detail. Brody will go on to be a top rate baseball player and Darby will run her beauty shop

This is the second book in the Masquerade Series but can be read as a standalone book.
This story is full of intense emotions which are beautifully written, capturing your heart making it swell and break…..
The ending wasn’t what I saw coming but totally made the book for me.
This is the story of Darby…..who has her life along with her high school sweetheart mapped out!! She will complete a year at college before going to be with Brody whilst he pursues his dreams of becoming a Pro Baseball player

4.5 stars!!
This is the second installment in the Masquerade Series by Glenna Maynard but it can be read as a standalone. I truly enjoyed the story and found the characters engaging. The story dealt with real life issues that are unfortunately common these days.

Darby Stuart fled from a proposal and her childhood sweetheart to keep a secret and give him a chance at success. Those three years have been filled with consistent emails and an undying love from Brody Case, the one left behind.

I’ve been following Glenna Maynard on Facebook for a while she was writing this book and I must say I was not disappointed.

What I loved the most about this book is that I actually read it with a southern American accent. Well my version of a southern American accent anyway. Normally the style of writing in this book would put me off and have me skim reading but Glenna has been very clever with this book and how she has worked the words

Do not be mistaken, yes this book is considered to be part of a series but it also reads as a stand-alone as well.

This by far I believe is the best writing from Glenna to date! The emotions and passion consumed me; at times it got so hot I swear my kindle was going to overheat. Beautiful Liar will melt your heart and imprison your soul.

My heart broke for Darby, she had to keep a secret from her high school sweetheart Brody for three years, a

This was an interesting book. I really thought it was going to turn out one way, and then it didn't. I was actually kind of glad at the way it turned out. I can't really say I fault Darby for what she did. I think it could have been handled differently, but she was right about what would have happened. She had a rough life and she didn't need to feel guilty everything, just one thing. I'm happy that she had Turner and Caroline there in her life to help her through the tough times. I would have g ...more

One huge decision can bring a mask of consequences, hiding the truth and turning it into a beautiful lie....

Beautiful Liar broke me and shattered me before putting me back together again, piece after tiny, little piece.

Darby has a secret, a secret that could change everything. But she made a decision a long time ago that she wasn't going to reveal it, at least not yet.

Brody and Turner have one thing in common, they both love the same woman. Although two worlds apart and many miles, will the lie

Omg!!! I just love this writers style, this is definitely a must read. I connected so good with the characters in this book. Omg, I felt so bad for Brody , I was so angry with Darby at times. But, my heart broke for her at other times too. She had endured so much and was a strong woman in this story line. I couldn't put this book down , I wanted to read it from beginning to end , when I first picked it up, unfortunately my kindle dyed on me I wanted to scream I was so mad at my kindle. This is d ...more

I so loved this story. This certainly deserved more than five stars. Fantastic storyline. The characters in the story were brilliant.
Hot men & a gorgeous woman... I so love these kinda stories. But the storyline set this book apart from authors.
Don't start this book without having time to read it all. This author sure knows how to suck you in.
I read the first in this series & didn't think this author could get any better. My dayz... I was so wrong.

I just finished Beautiful Liar by Glenna Maynard and it was AMAZING!! This is book 2 in The Masquerade Series and the best so far! Darby makes a hard decision and leaves Brody, the love of her life, so that he can pursue his dreams and not end up stuck in their small town. Darby moves to Miami and meets Turner, the manager of The Masquerade Club where she starts working. Darby goes through so many emotions trying to figure out her life. It is a very sweet story, but have the tissues nearby! I ab ...more

Great read! I found this book quite emotional. It felt like I was on a powerful emotional roller coaster. But on a better note I really liked it. The author has a gift for telling you a raw emotional story with love, pain, heartbreak,and passion. I am looking forward to reading the next in the series. thank goodness I own it, so I don't have to wait. ...more

No words could describe just how amazing this story is!! This was an emotional roller coaster unlike any other. I had no chance of stopping the tears that came down my face or the smiles that came when my heart was put back together.

Beautiful Liar is book #2 in The Masquerade Series. Even though it is a series it can be a stand alone. This was the first book I read by the author and not knowing it was a series until after I read it. I wasn't lost or had to go back to read the first book in the series to follow along.

The book starts out with a young Darby who finds out she is pregnant by her high school sweetheart. Instead of telling him she is pregnant she runs away to live with her mom in Florida and cuts off all
