Book Review: Masquerade by Janette Rallison

Title: Masquerade

5 STARS: I LOVED IT!!!

When Clarissa takes a much needed job under slightly false pretenses, she doesn’t think it will be such a big deal. She may have told her movie-star boss that she was married, but that shouldn’t matter. After all, she doesn’t want anything to do with men for a long, long time.

It’s hard for a woman to keep up the masquerade when her boss is as handsome as Slade Jacobson and the job takes her to Hawaii with him. In between handling his whirlwind four-year-old daughter and dealing with a whole cast of Hollywood personalities, Clarissa has to keep a tight hold on her heart.

My Thoughts:
I loved this book! Clarissa was a single mom with a critical and disinterested ex-husband. She needed a job and found an old friend of her ex’s at a temp agency. He thought she was still married and sent her over to Slade the movie star’s house for a nanny interview. The guy told her Slade preferred the nanny to be married so she wouldn’t be another girl trying to get his attention instead of nannying his daughter. Slade thinking Clarissa was married was not the most promising start to a romance, but it got interesting. Then there was Landon, Slade’s movie star friend she met in Hawaii, who either didn’t believe she was married or didn’t care.

Told from both Clarissa and Slade’s POV made it even more fun and frustrating. The poor guy thought she was married for crying out loud. I enjoyed the parts with Clarissa and her daughter and Slade and his daughter, very sweet. Slade’s daughter was a handful making for some pretty funny/embarrassing scenes. Like I’ve said before, Janette Rallison writes the most cringe worthy and hilarious embarrassing moments.

Masquerade was a light-hearted, entertaining, clean adult romance. I recommend it to any romance lover.

Book Review: A Longtime (and at one point illegal) Crush by Janette Rallison

Title: A Longtime (and at one point illegal) Crush
Author: Janette Rallison
Publisher: self
Release Date: February 2013

5 STARS: I LOVED IT!!!

From the day Elsie’s older brother brought his friend Kye McBride over to their house, Elsie adored him. When she was eight, she secretly blew kisses to him. When she was twelve, she sat on the stairs unnoticed and watched him escort another girl to prom. When she was a senior in high school, she walked into math class and found out he was her new math teacher.

With that much emotion fueling her, things were bound to go wrong. And they did. Elsie not only spent the last two weeks of school avoiding him, she turned avoiding-Kye-at-all-costs into her life-long philosophy.

Now three years have passed and Elsie has come home for her brother’s wedding. She’s got to face Kye-–hopefully without getting crushed again.

My Thoughts:
Oh sigh, Janette Rallison can do no wrong. I love her books! She writes the best embarrassing moments. This one was painfully embarrassing and made me cringe . . . and laugh. Great great stuff. This was the first book by Janette I’ve read with an older Main Character. The other books I’ve read were teenagers. Elsie was in college and so probably early twenties, but she does flashback to her high school days too.

This is a must read for anyone who wants a sweet romance with a good laugh. Seriously, the girl was in love with her math teacher who happened to be her brother’s best friend. Classic. I loved every minute of this read! I just wished it was longer! This was a novella so only 62 pages of blissfully fun reading.
