this was my first Melody Grace book. Unmasked is a short story about the night Noelle Olsen meets Ash Callahan.

Ash while getting out of his limo to go to a charity event, spots a woman having a problem with her shoe. Noelle is a young dissatisfied with her life lawyer. She works 18 hour days 7 days a week with no life. Tonight she is going to a charity event bracing herself to meet one of her fathers associates on another bad blind date her father set her up with. Everything was going smoothly

Oh my...what a tease! I have been a fan of the series for a while now. I've always been curious about Ash. He's the oldest sibling, the no-nonsense responsible workaholic that is always too busy to enjoy life. He's shouldered the responsibility of taking care of his family after the death of their parents. He just keeps working and pushing himself. When will it be his turn to find the woman who will make him see that there is more to life? Well, she might not be his f

Great intro to Ash and Noelle! This novella might be short, but Melody Grace does not disappoint! I'm looking forward to seeing how the rest of their story plays out!

Unmasked is the novella from Melody Grace's amazing Beachwood Bay series which is leading us to her final novel in this series in spectacular fashion. Unmasked introduces us to Ash and Noelle, two characters who share an undeniable connection of souls at first sight. In her typically perfect writing and storytelling style, Ms. Grace has grasped ahold of our heartstrings leaving us dangling with anticipation of what direction their story will take.

Ash spends his life focused on busine

It is nearing the end of the long-loved and enjoyed Beachwood Bay series as we have Book 7.5 released in Novella format. Unmasked is the type of story that if you have a spare half-hour you can read it in one sitting and it is a story that will have you wrapped up and spun into a whirlwind of love, mystery and romance. The book features Ash Callahan who is the oldest of the Callahan Siblings - they are the ones we have read and seen featured in the latter of Melody Grace's books. He has his own ...more

Melody Grace has some kind of magic that makes her write books that I love. Unmasked was no different. I was drawn in from page one and when it ended I wanted more.

Ash Callagahn is the head of his family. When his parents died, he took his brother and sister under his supervision. He gave up everything for them. No, they are all grown up with lives of their own. You would think it would be Ash's time to find love and happiness. But there is soothing holding him back. For him, it is all

I forget how easily it is to fall into Melody Grace's books until I start reading another one. I get lost in her amazing word choice & beautifully flowing words. The story just surrounds you like few other authors can do, and you just lose yourself into the book, so easily transported into this other world.

In this novella, set before Unforgettable, Ash & Noelle meet by chance & sparks fly. They are both drawn to each other, while admittedly supposed to be focused on other things. The

This is a short book only 6 chapters but I loved the flow of the book. Have you ever met someone and just felt a connection not knowing what it means. Ash is not that guy he knows what he has to do but she makes him loose control. Noelle is a girl who has done everything she's supposed to do but for one night she just wants to be free. They agreed one night can they both walk away and not look back. Only time will tell. This is an honest review thank you I enjoyed this novella now I can't wait t ...more

I was thrilled now to from the wonderful series, Beachwood Bay. Written by Melody Grace. Introducing the beautiful, Noelle Olen. In this wonderful romance to the gorgeous, Ash Callahan. I just so enjoyed this marvellous book!!

Ash thinks he knows everything. He believes he is the best ever. As he drove through NYC. Finding that his latest grandest housing has already sold out ever so much earlier than it was finished. He was just so very happy with their de

I didn't have this book on my kindle but after getting a taste of Ash in the previous book i knew I had to finish the series completly. Thankfully this one was free and I'm so glad i decided to read it because i really liked it! I'm hoing that Ash will change his tune in the next book and take action with Noelle, but I have a feeling that Noelle is going to be the one chasing Ash. Hopefully im wrong though! I loved the masquerade and the mystery in this book and I'm excited to see how everything ...more

Google Books - 3.5 stars

Noelle - lawyer
Ash - property developer

I read this between 3am and 5am when I couldn't sleep (and still had hope of reaching my Reading Challenge goal). It was a fun little story, set at a masquerade ball in New York City. It was all instant attraction stuff, nice banter between the characters. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series, I'm kinda OCD like that.

this is a short novella before the main book the same as all the others, it gives you an insight into the two main characters, Noelle Olsen (grand-daughter of Mrs Olsen of Beachwood bay) and Ash Callahan, ( the only one of the Callahans to find love) they bump into each other outside a charity party they were both going to as Noelle's heal was caught in a drain, the passion was there and they made a vow, One night. Two unlikely hearts. No holding back.

Looking forward to the next book!

Very disappointing.

Really did not like the way you write. You disappoint me by just giving us a short story line.
Then you throw in two chapters of another book.

A teaser- a short story leading to the main book Unforgettable which has to be read.
Personally would rather just read the story in one whole book but it did the trick of making me want to read on.

I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys stories that are funny, steamy, and romantic, with characters that are strong both male and female.
I love this series.

Ash has made appearances, or had references, in most of the previous books but we don’t really know him. This was an interesting introduction. On to the BIG story.

I was so excited and grateful to see that Unmasked was provided at the start of the ARC for Unforgettable !! How freakin awesome is that !! Melody is phenomenal and I am so sad to see the series end BUT WOW it goes out with a bang !! The bonus of this story and then the Epilogue at the end of Unforgettable !!

Unmasked is the little piece into Ash and Noelle's first encounter, how their obsession with each other began !! I mean as a guy how can you forget Noelle and as a chick there is no way to

My only complaint this read went too quickly. I want more of Ash and Noelle. I love the concept of forgetting who you are for one night and letting everything go. Being the real you and allowing one person to see it for one day. That is awesome and so is this first part to the series. I was sad how it ended but do hope they see each other again. Noelle and Ash are two people stuck in positions that neither really want to be in. Too many responsibilities and burdens plague them. Ash has been ther ...more

I downloaded this on a bit of a shopping spree but it was free at the time of purchase so that’s why I thought why not? I’ve read one book by Melody Grace before called First Position, you can read my review here, but I didn’t click that it was the same author until I had finished Unmasked.

This is the prelude to the last book in Melody’s Beachwood Bay series featuring the Callahan brothers. I’ve never read any of the books in the series but going on this little snippet I would probably think abo

I'm sad that this is the last but one book of the Beachwood series, I have loved every minute of the journey including the introduction of the Callahans to the series, they just added another spark. This is a short story, 6 chapters, but it was a wonderful introduction into Noelle and Ash.

Ash is the eldest Callahan brother. He meets Noelle quite by chance as he tries to save her shoe from being de-heeled as it's stuck in the grate on their way to a charity masked ball. What overcomes them both i

When Ash Callahan goes to a Charity gala the last thing he expects to do is fall for a beautiful damsel in distress. Ash is a workaholic real estate developer who has no time for anything but work. He only goes to this gala for networking.

Noelle is a hard-working lawyer whose family thinks she's going to turn into an old maid because she is 26 with no boyfriend. Noelle finds herself going on another blind date set up by her friends. She doesn't want to go and to make matters worse, she she ends

Only a novella but the beginning of Ash and Noelle's story. Will be diving into Unforgettable now to see how their story continues. Sad that it is the end of the Beachwood Bay Series.

FREE and off the charts hot! What more can you want?

This novella introduces Noelle and Ash cannot keep his lips off of hers! Just one night... they both agree to an unpredictable and fun night where they both spread their wings and free fly through this attraction they both feel.

They both are scorching HOT on these pages... and we are left wanting more. Never fear, Unforgettable is here. Their love story continues as the grand finale of the Beachwood Bay series ties all loose ends.

This was a steamy taste, before the meal, which is Unforgettable, and I know it's worth the wait!!
This book let us get to know Noelle Olsen, and what a complex character she is...She is smart, funny, and comes off like a free-spirit.
Through the Callahan family, we have got to know Ash, and I have been waiting for this book to come. Ash has stayed away from girls like Noelle, but I think it's going to take every thing in Ash to run from that chemistry they have.. Melody Grace always knows how t

Just got this free iBook novella on my phone and it was awesome! I've never read a book by this author but I have to say how much I enjoyed it. It was short, but enough to want me to read the conclusion of Ash and Noelle. They're both unhappy with how their lives are going and they meet while he tries to get her shoe out of a road grate. It's history from there!!
You get a really good sense of Noelle in this novella and what kind of person she is, not so much Ash but I'm excited to learn more abo

Sweet, short, steamy sexy novella goodness. I have been waiting for this. As soon as I heard Noelle's name in Unwritten, I knew she was going to be Ash's girl. I think I am going to relate to Noelle...a lot, just from the brief glimpse of her I got here. Ash, well if you have been following the Beachwood Bay series for a while, we have been hearing bits and pieces about Ash forever. I can't wait to hear about his story because he took on all the responsibility when his parents' died so I am sure ...more
