Description from the publisher:
Caitlyn Davis expects her sophomore year at UCLA to be perfect…until she walks into her dorm room to find Special Agent Zoey Kaplan of the FBI waiting for her. In that instant, she knows her idyllic year with new best friends, Nicole and Dale, along with her super hot boyfriend, Eric, is about to fall apart.


I love this series.  Caity has such an unique gift that she tries to use only when necessary (like beating the smug out of an arrogant older brother – trust me, he deserves it).  Ultimately, I feel bad for Caity.  She is always trying to make everything better for everyone else, so much so that she doesn’t say “no” when it may be the best answer for herself and her closest relationships.  Once again, she feels obliged to make the world a better place for those who may be in danger.  Eric may be humanly flawed, but that just makes him all the more loveable.  Eric’s past will come to haunt them both, even when he doesn’t know the truth about that past.  Agent Kaplan is tough as nails and determined, but you have to wonder if she isn’t skirting her own criminal charges when she puts Caity in danger once again. 

Ever the optimist, I put myself through a ringer hoping for the best only to be crushed and then riding the crest of hope again.  All of the characters are well-written with complete distinctive personalities.  The story is one-of-a-kind and hard to put down.  I look forward to reading the next book in the series.  You can already tell that POKER FACE is the perfect title and I can’t wait to see what Melissa Pearl has in store for us!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is the third book in the Masks series.  They do need to be read in order.

After nearly getting herself killed (again) last year, Caity is avoiding her special gift and trying to just live her life as a sophomore in college.  Her boyfriend, Eric, may not trust easily, but for Caity he is willing to let go and try.  His trust will be tested when unbeknownst to him Caity has once again been pressed into assisting FBI agent Kaplan with an undercover operation involving human-trafficking. Can Caity juggle the job, school, friends, and Eric without losing any of them?

I love this series.  Caity has such an unique gift that she tries to use only when necessary (like beating the smug out of an arrogant older brother – trust me, he deserves it).  Ultimately, I feel bad for Caity.  She is always trying to make everything better for everyone else, so much so that she doesn’t say “no” when it may be the best answer for herself and her closest relationships.  Once again, she feels obliged to make the world a better place for those who may be in danger.  Eric may be humanly flawed, but that just makes him all the more loveable.
