Naomi Costa normally kept herself to herself until she received a mysterious invitation to a ball. Following the directions (almost) she encounters a masked stranger who’s connection she cannot deny. Following a night of uninhibited passion she meets the new college Master…the masked man.
Dr. Ben Beck never considered himself much of an academic until his book became a best seller. Receiving the invitation to the ball was an unexpected surprise, as was meeting the enchanting girl. Finding out she was one of his students should have prevented any further attraction but neither could keep their hands off each other.
As their passion escalates they have to decide what is more important – their love or their careers?
This book had promise and the story line had ponential but it was let down, in my opinion, by a few aspects. The main one being the ball. I still don’t understand the relevance of the masked ball other than to get the two main characters together. The whole set up just seemed a little weird and unnecessary. Naomi and Ben would have met on campus and the attraction would have been there no matter what. The continual on-off aspect got a bit much after a while as well. There was confessions of love and ‘I’ll never leave’, then the next thing one is leaving the other.
On the whole it is a good story, if you can get past the bits above.
