Beautiful Liar
Glenna Maynard

Sometimes life has a way of deciding things for you. Some call it fate.

When Darby Stuart left her high school sweetheart on bended knee three years ago, she never dreamed of seeing him again. The past three years have been rough, but she finally has her life on track. She has new job at the Masquerade Club,and a new man in her life Turner Mathews. 
When Brody Case was left on bended knee three years ago he never gave up on his love for Darby. The past three years without her have been hell. After a failed marriage and his career taking a downward spiral he knows he must find her again. 
When fate crosses their paths once more, will Brody still feel the same when he discovers the lie Darby fed him years ago? Will fate and lies rekindle what was? Or will Darby find a new life with Turner?

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 felt for Darby, it appeared that though her plan would not go without consequences that she was being selfless by trying to allow Brody a chance to fulfill his dream of becoming a professional ball player.  

Darby juggles jobs to make ends meet and when she agrees to a job at The Masquerade Club things get a little steamy.   Enter the sexy and charming and humorous Turner Mathews, who manages the club.   
I mean who wouldn’t fall for a guy who gives you an endearing nickname like “Pumpkin Tits”.   

Turner made me swoon.  He was just too good to be true.  I liked that he was understanding of Darby’s situation and was her friend as well as her lover.   He gave her the space to deal with her past and the opportunity to choose her future.

Darby rides an emotional roller coaster throughout the book.  While still reeling from loss, she finally decides that she needs to let Brody in on all the reasons she left. But as fate would have it the choice is no longer hers to make.  Dealing with the backlash of her actions, she is dealt another blow that devastates her.

I was starting to wonder if Darby was going to be able to catch a break.  I mean there is only so much turmoil and heartache one person can deal with.  I can honestly say that I laughed, smiled and cried throughout the book.

“All of the choices I have made and all the lies I have told have led up to this moment in my life.” ~ Darby
