This is such a different story – I loved it! There was so much in this book it could be classified under several categories: YA, paranormal, thriller, suspense, mystery… I had no idea what to expect when starting this book and was pleasantly surprised. This was definitely not your typical collage age romance story. The romance part, almost took a back seat to the mystery/thriller storyline but still played a prominent role throughout. The main character Caitlyn has a gift of being able to read people’s emotions by peeling off their faces (mentally) and seeing what emotions lie underneath their expressions. This gift can be a blessing and a curse as we find out in this book. Since there is a mystery involved with this story I do not want to give too much away. I did find myself trying to solve it along with the characters. However the details about the mystery evolved as the story went on so it left the reader trying to put the puzzle pieces together until almost the end of the story. There was also a thriller aspect to the story. As the characters were investigating the mystery, they found themselves in some dangerous situations. These scenes had my heart pounding trying to figure out what was going to happen next and if they were going to make it. There was a romance aspect to the story that enhanced it rather than take away from it. It was not the main theme in the story but was carried throughout which helped drive the decisions made by the characters and guide the story. If you are looking for something different to read that has mystery, thrills, romance and a paranormal base, this is definitely one to pick up!
I received this book from Mark My Words Publicity in return for a fair and honest review. We rejoin Caity and Eric as they go through their first year at college. Not only does Caity have the usual stresses of college - completely opposite roommate, disliking certain teachers, frat parties, etc - but she also has to cope with her ability to "de-mask" people. She is trying to have a 'normal' life but sometimes the mask will take over and she will do what she thinks is right, even if sometimes it isn't. She is getting more used to being able to handle her ability but there is friction between herself and Eric as he struggles to understand and appreciate her ability. On the one hand, he accepts and relies on what she has to say she has seen 'behind the mask' but only when it suits him. He doesn't want to have his illusions shattered when it is about someone he likes, respects or cares about. This is the start of a tumultuous time for them both as they try to figure out who is doing what, who is saying what, how something could be happening as well as dealing with a suddenly rocky relationship and helping their friends too. This is the second story in the Masks series and you will need to read book 1 first but I can highly recommend both books. I turned the first page of both books and was immediately sucked into Caity's world as she deals with her ability and friends alike. It was really good to see 'old' friends in Two-Faced and to see how they have progressed during the time we've been gone.And that is how the books feels. Like it's real, like these characters are friends that you know and care about. Excellently written and well-paced building up to the climax, I really can't recommend this highly enough.
A Suspense-filled drama with a paranormal element... Note: This review contains NO spoilers Wow! Two-Faced is another amazing and emotional story by Melissa Pearl! A sequel to True Colors, Melissa deftly intertwined the paranormal and suspenseful drama into Caitlyn's life. From high school to college, life and growth happens, but with Caity's ability to see people's true emotions, life isn't as simple. Melissa has skillfully expressed the struggles and stress that Caity goes through in dealing and using her gift...that she never wanted, but takes responsibility for it. I loved the smooth flow and transition the characters and the story take into college life after high school. This time, Two-Faced is told in two points of view (POV)...Caity's POV and Eric's POV. This is where the romance comes in...Caity really did fall for the boy next door, and Eric fell for Caity, the girl next door! Now, how sweet is that! However, their journey towards their relationship wasn't as simple...yes, the road to their relationship was a suspense thriller...haha! But, I can't say anymore....you must read True Colors to get that dramatic history behind Caity and Eric's relationship. I loved how real life issues have been beautifully interwoven into the story/plot. Since reading True Colors, then Two-Faced, Melissa did an amazing job with the character development, especially when her characters made that transition from high school to college....they're not teenagers anymore! Loved it! Reminded me of when I had to transition from high school to college...it was nerve-wracking and stressful...hahaha!! With the beautiful character development and growth, I felt I was there with Caity...going through all her struggles and doubts about college, her gift...even her boyfriend! What!?! Then...when I got to the climax of the story...Whoa! My heart was racing and pounding! I seriously held my breath as I turned the pages...the suspense was killing me! Like with True Colors, Caity (again) puts her life on the line to help others, because of her gift. I so love this character. She's vulnerable, yet, she finds the strength to help others. I think I started breathing again when I got to the end of the book...guess I let out a breath of relief, once I found out the outcome of all suspense Caity and her friends put me through...hahaha! Amazing read! I am absolutely amazed at Melissa's brilliant ability to create such emotional and insightful characters, and to create a world that has its flaws, but yet, the beauty still shines. Filled with suspense and drama, Melissa still added the sweet romance to keep me swooning. From True Colors to Two-Faced, this series has definitely got me wrapped up in Caity's life and the gift she has been given. I so look forward to the next book in this amazing series! Melissa Pearl has, again, written an amazing story filled with emotions and drama in any average college student life...but with the added paranormal element and that suspense mystery feel to it that will keep things interesting! I know I want more!!!
