Façade (Games #2) by Nyrae Dawn ~ Book Review

Book Description:

Can love save them?

After her father commits a crime that shatters her family, eighteen-year-old Delaney Cross is tired of pretending everything is all right. Packing up her car, she sets out to find the people her father hurt. Her search leads her to places she’s never been—and into the arms of Adrian Westfall.

To the outside world, Adrian is a sexy, charming ladies’ man. But his playboy persona is just an act. Secretly his soul is tortured by a memory too painful to share. Only Delaney seems to see through his façade to the real man underneath. And for the first time in his life, Adrian feels he can begin to open up about his past.

Together, Adrian and Delaney share a passionate love they never expected to find. Yet both still harbor their own secrets. When the dark truth is finally revealed, will it bring them closer together—or tear them apart forever?

I waited way to long to pick this book up and read it. When I first got it for review I didn't realize it was book #2, then I decided to wait on reading it because I thought it would be hard to follow without the first book being read. Well I was totally wrong and I don't know why I wait so long to read this. I fell in love with the characters and story right away and was roped into the book. I likely could have read it in one sitting if I didn't have other "life" things to do, darn life gets in the way of reading all the time.

The story flows pretty well without leaving too many lulls that get the reader bored. I found that the characters could have had more depth but I really could feel for them and really liked the characters. Both Dalaney and Adrian lived with some very dark secrets that haunt them daily. I was getting upset with Dalaney for leading Adrian on and not coming clean about what she knew about him. Little did she know that Adrian had more secrets that she didn't know. I didn't actually see it coming until closer to the end of the story. I found myself wiping tears away from my eyes at the end.

I give this a 4.5 out of 5 stars and I look forward to reading more by Nyrea Dawn.
