Hawaiian Masquerade (Destination Billionaire Romance) by:by Rachelle J. Christensen
Lexi closed her eyes. The waves rolled in slowly, rhythmically, with a dependability that would never be doubted. Shawn had been her rock and they’d worked together with a rhythm that had kept their jobs and life in sync. Before Derek, she might’ve entertained a future with Shawn … but the dark-haired man with a camera bag slung over his shoulder had changed everything.
When Lexi Burke escaped the remnants of a cold winter in Chicago for the beaches of Kauai, it wasn’t a random vacation. She left the hectic pace of Burke Enterprises behind with enough money to retire at age thirty-two, intent on settling into the idyllic existence of island life. Until she met local photographer Derek Mitchell—a talented man with a grudge against rich tourists.
From art night to snorkeling lessons, hiking, and chopping coconuts, Lexi can’t talk herself out of spending time with the handsome, hardworking man who knows the value of every dollar. She also can’t find a way to tell him the truth about herself. But then Derek is selected to help in a benefit at a masquerade ball as one of the eligible bachelors up for auction. Lexi must decide whether to wear a mask or unveil her true self and risk losing Derek’s trust and a chance at love.
I LOVED this book! You know when you read and then finish a book that was so good you sigh because you loved it so much and your sad it's over? Well, that was me with this book! Rachelle did such a great job with this story. I promise you'll fall in love with the characters and the setting. Hawaii has never been at the top of my bucket list but after this book I think someday I'll have to give it a try. This is an awesome book about relationships, trust and happiness. Can't wait to read more from Rachelle!
