April   ♥"LOS" ♥
Michael (Misha) and Raquelle may be my new favorite couple in this series! Don't get me wrong, I still have a special place in my heart for Mac and Mara but there is just something so endearing about Raquelle (and her dog Titus) and the way Misha falls for her.
Raquelle is no stranger to hurt and betrayal and it takes a lot for her to open up and trust anyone, let alone a dark and dangerous man who she just met. But there is just something about MIsha that let's her open up to him. But as their

A sexy murder mystery I did not want to put down
A plot with two engaging characters, both with their share of baggage. A good foundation and background of the characters was great, I loved both of them. They had excellent chemistry and wonderful sexual tension. It was so hard to see the difficulties that Raquelle had to deal with to find the answers to her fathers death. She was put between a rock and a hard spot, a place she did not want to be. The emotional roller coaster kept me turning the p

Masks is the third book in Kenzie Macallan’s Art of Eros series and features Racquelle, commissioned to paint a portrait of the CEO of a company with ties to her father’s unexpected death, and Michael Haines, who works at his father’s investment firm but takes the CEO position when his father disappears while the company is under investigation. Both of these characters have secrets but are instantly attracted to each other. This well written book has intriguing characters and a mysterious plot w ...more

Let me start off by saying that this is the third in a series and I have not read the first two. But, that did not take away from the story and I definitely want to go back and read all the books in order. I really enjoyed Raquelle and Misha’s story. Raquelle’s backstory, I’m sure, was developed in the first two books. This story seemed to focus more on the development of the hero’s character. Michael (Misha) Raines is the CEO of one of the top investment firms in New York City. Unfortunately, t ...more

The author could not have picked a better title for this book, since we all hide behind a mask through life. Misha and Raquelle both had secrets and once the masks are peeled back it was amazing.
Misha lived his life being ruled by his father, now running his business with his father always in the background. Raquelle's life was similar. When these two characters are brought together the journey is hot, sexy and a train wreck just waiting to happen. That is what makes each chapter more a peeling

I loved Raquelle and Misha’s story. Their interactions had me laughing, tearing up, and fanning myself. Raquelle trying to make her mark as an artist is determined to make it on her own instead of using her famous father’s name. Misha helps runs a company for his father who has his family in the dark about many things. What happens... you’ve gotta read it because I’m not spoiling it for you!!!

I received an ARC copy and wanted to leave my honest review.

Masks is the first book by Kenzie that I have read. I thought it was ok. I wish I would have read the two previous book's in this series. There is so much potential in this series. I wish it was written differently, more in the characters POV. Raquelle and Misha are one of kind. ...more
