Publisher's Summary

He loves me, and he doesn't even know my real name.

The limelight that follows him could expose everything I'm hiding. But even knowing the risks, I can't force myself to stay away.

I'm going to break his heart, but mine will shatter right along with it.

Will we lose it all when I reveal what's beneath this mask?

    "SWEET ROMANCE BUT THERE'S A SECRET PAST TO REVEAL"

    Charlotte (aka Charlie) needs to disappear quickly and she does it in New Orleans and now with a new look, a new job and a new identity she has finally found her true self working in a Tattoo Shop. One year in and late one night a Bachelor Party come staggering in and that's when she meets the gorgeous Simon. Simon is instantly captivated by the tattooed, dark haired beauty with colored streaks in her hair but is it the booze clouding his mind. So he returns the next day to find out that she was even more breathtaking but he can't get her to say yes to a date..... until persistency, a lack of Charlie's willpower and a terrible accident brings them together. But Charlie has secrets that could harm Simon's political career, she's a closed book and sooner or later her past is going to catch up with her and it's just a case of when and at what price.

    I usually go for bad boys and Simon is anything but that, he's thoughtful, kind, caring, understanding and doesn't pressurise Charlie for answers and I loved him for that. It was Charlie who was keeping secrets and, as usual, they're kept too long with devastating results. There's no surprises for the listener as Charlie's past life is told from the start but it's a lovely romance that unfolds between two likeable characters who deserve each other. There's romantic times, sexy times and heartbreaking confusing times and the worst enemy is Charlie's self doubt..... well that and her family and the F.B.I.

    Worth a credit? Dual POV's, good narration and a story that I couldn't wait to get back to so, IMO, that all makes for a nice creditworthy listen.

    "Five Stars ~ All The Way!"


    Wow! What a wonderful love story! I agree with all the positive reviews! Don't know why I was so skeptical about starting this series, but Meghan March has made a believer out of me. I'm definitely on board with rest of the series!

    Andi and Holter both did fantastic job on the narration!

    Well worth the credit!

    "Wonderful start to a great series!"

    I loved this book! It seams that lately most books I've listened to have been over the top on the angst. This one has just the right amount. The narration is really good. Has a great HEA. Can be read as a stand alone but is the beginning of a great series. This one is credit worthy!

    "Keeping a secret has never been so difficult"

    Oh how I loved this first book in the Beneath Series by Meghan March. It had intrigue, all the emotions and some off the charts sex. Charlie and Simon are awesome together, but there's all sorts of things in their way.

    But these two are meant to be together and where there's a will there's a way... but can they overcome their obstacles? Give a listen and you'll find out.

    "1st of many Meghan March books, doesn' disappoint!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is the first book from Meghan March, and being a series this wont be the last. I really enjoyed the first book, its about a bad girl and the good boy. I'm typically into the bad boy, but having the bad girl pegging for the good boy was intriguing, and typically isn't written. (at least not on my reading aspect).

    Charlie aka Charlotte quickly disappears from NYC, and find herself as Charlie in New Orleans. She's got a new look, a new job and tattoo's scaling her prestigious skin. Charlie is hiding from a world that she wants nothing of, she comes from dirty money and fancy cars.
    On a typical night at work a bachelor party comes in, and beautiful gorgeous Simon comes in and the heat between her legs knew he would be trouble for her.

    Good Boy Simon, a council man could ruin her, but her love (yes insta love) doesn't stop her in taking a chance on him. There's so much more to the story, and having this be a series is exciting- the narrators were great, Andi Arndt never disappoints, and this is the first read I've listened to of Holter Graham.

    "Loved this story!"
    Would you listen to Beneath This Mask again? Why?

    I've listened to it multiple times already. I really loved both of the characters and the narrators were very good.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Charlie. I really enjoyed the way she decided to reinvent herself with her tattoos and hair.


    What about Andi Arndt and Holter Graham ’s performance did you like?

    I really love Andi Arndt. She is one of my very favorites as she does both male/female voices super well. I enjoyed Holter Graham but I felt the sound was off a bit in the recording.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely!


    Any additional comments?

    I really love Meghan March's writing style about people crossing all the social barriers and stigma to see each other's worth beyond all the outer trappings. Super steamy and romantic which is an awesome combination.

    "Refreshing story"

    Original storyline and great setting, I liked how the "good girl falls for bad boy" roles where somewhat reversed without being all too black or white. The writing was fluid and the characters well developed, making it simple to embrace their circumstances and empathize. I appreciated less of the typical and sometimes overplayed internal monologues and enjoyed how the secondary characters (including the lovely Huck) enhanced the narrative.

    Holter Graham wasn't my favorite narrator, his pace was too slow and I didn't particularly like how he would sometimes go to extremes: either whispering/mumbling or being super loud and intense. I adore Andi Arndt, the way she approaches her characters with such easiness always makes it effortless for me to identify with them.

    "Great female narrator! BAD male narrator!"

    This story was decent enough. Not a pager turner, can't stop listening story. Just okay. I did not care for the dual first person POV.

    I liked Charlie, and her story, I liked her character. I did get a little annoyed with the fact that she wanted to know all about Simon and his secrets but she wouldn't tell any of hers.
    The chemistry between them was good. They had lots and lots of sex. So be prepared. I found myself fast forwarding/skimming most of those scenes after the first two. It was just too much, I liked the story portion more than the sex portion of the story.

    Simon was likable for the most part, but for some reason I felt like he was sometimes too weak of a male hero for her.

    As for the narration:
    Holter Graham was really bad. So bad, I couldn't stand it when he started talking. He did the female's voice better than he did the hero's voice. Crazy right?! Its true. He did not do this book or this character any favors at all.

    Andi Ardnt was great. I give her 5 stars for sure. She did a great job. Her male voice was so much better than the actual male narrator. That's pretty bad. I would have liked this book so much better had she narrated the whole thing. I also think it would have been a better story NOT written in the first person with Dual POV.

    "I'm hooked"

    Although I read book 6 in this series first (it was awesome, hence starting from the beginning), it did not take away from my enjoyment of the first book. This book follows bad girl (running away from the law) Charlie and good boy (running for Senator) Simon as they try to navigate a relationship based based on non truths. I loved the twist on the bad boy image (bad girl Charlie for a change). The story, told in dual POV, was fast paced and kept me entertained throughout the whole book. I'm definitely starting book 2 in the very near future because I need more of this complex, highly entertaining group.
