Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it.

New Berlin, 2040. Rebels prepare to fight against the New World Order, bent on bringing down the world’s greatest tyrant. One girl wanted nothing to do with it, content to keep her head down and make the best of this new world. That is, until she has no choice but to work with the rebels and infiltrate the NWO headquarters. Every moment she spends there puts her in danger, especially when one man, the second in command to the New World leader, continues to make his way into her every thought. She must stay focused and protect not just her mind and body, but also her heart. Will she be able to complete her task without being unmasked? Or will the one man standing in her way ruin it all?

*I received a free copy of this book from the author*

Masked takes off were Switched ended, with Bridgette impersonating her sister Charlotte aka “Weapon X”, she faces obvious the obvious challenges  of pretending to be someone else especially since she hardly knows anything  about her sister as well as being in the center of the New World government  without being discovered.

Things I loved:

-Roman: He has been my favorite character since book 1, even if we didn’t see much of him, in this book we see more sides of him, we see that he is more than the second in command of the New World he is a genuine caring, loving man and unlike many villains he has no problem admitting that he has done horrible things along with being ashamed of them. He shows the world that you can be a tough bad guy but still be a gentleman with the woman you love.

-The inside look we got of the government we were able to see how it worked, how Ludwing handled himself with everything life threw of him, this insight actually make me like Ludwing.

-I’m glad that the old characters were not forgotten and that the new characters promise to be amazing.

-Did I already mention Roman??

-The fact that Bridgette never saw thing in  black or white was very refreshing.

Things that didn’t work for me:

-Bridgette: When she was by herself she was an amazing main character but all her wonderful traits were lost when she thought of Roman or was near to him; it’s seemed her brain shut down when it came to him.

-Multiple points of view: This worked perfectly in the first but this time it annoyed me, perhaps it was because I only wanted to know about Bridgette and Roman.

-Charlotte and Bridgette’s parents: seriously what was wrong with them, you’re supposed to love your kids.

-The ending: why do my favorite authors do this to me!! It’s cruel to end your books in a cliffhanger.
