POKER FACE BY MELISSA PEARL
When Caitlyn Davis agreed to work with the FBI, she never imagined it would lead to her own kidnapping. But her special ability to read people’s emotions and decipher the truth has attracted the unwanted attention of Santiago Gomez, a rich casino owner who intends to use Caity’s talent to further his own business.
Eric Shore knew Caity didn’t want to break up with him; her scribbled note left on his bed gave him a snippet of the truth she’d been hiding. Still reeling from his brush with death and the loss of his beloved grandfather, Eric throws himself into searching for his girl.
With help from his reemerged father and a rogue FBI agent, Eric follows a tenuous lead to Las Vegas, not caring that his rescue attempt could bring him face-to-face with the same man who killed his grandfather and wants him dead as well.
While Caity fights to survive the horrors of her slavery, Eric is thrust into a dangerous world that could cost him his life, along with Caity’s.

Melissa Pearl did a wonderful job in writing a page turner, breath catching, heart pounding suspense with this book. It’s been a while since I was able to hold a book that will make me awake from 12am until three in the morning because I can’t stop turning the page until I finally know what will happened. She will take you to a journey with her characters that will make you see how beautiful your life is despite the ups and down that you might be going through.
The best part of this novel and for me it is also what sets it apart to other novel of this genre was the way the author wrote the ending for the characters. I wouldn’t want to spoil it for you but for me, there is no better way to end it than the way she did. It’s more realistic, more believable, more easy to relate to. It truth, I spent a couple of minutes thinking whether I liked how it ended but after flashing back to everything that happened it the series, I just have to commend Melissa Pearl for writing and ending it, the way it did.
The romance, the suspense, that gut wrenching thrill of this adventure with Eric and Caity, there’s just no word to describe it… you have to read the book yourself and experience the ride to feel how it felt. I was so immerse into the story that it didn’t not feel like I was reading it, it felt like was there, being an spectator as each page unfolds it all.
This book had me totally, and definitely in love with the craft that is the writings of Melissa Pearl!
