Book Review: Masquerade by Janette Rallison


Title: Masquerade

Author: Janette Rallison

Series: None

Published; November 2012


Book Summary:

When Clarissa takes a much needed job under slightly false pretenses, she doesn’t think it will be such a big deal. She may have told her movie-star boss that she was married but that shouldn’t matter. After all, she doesn’t want anything to do with men for a long, long time.

It’s hard for a woman to keep up the masquerade when her boss is as handsome as Slade Jacobson and the job takes her to Hawaii with him. In between handling his whirlwind four-year-old daughter and dealing with a whole cast of Hollywood personalities, Clarissa has to keep a tight hold on her heart.




Fun!  Seriously that about sums this book up.  I love romantic comedy so this was a hit with me.

Masquerade made me smile and I enjoyed the time I spent reading this sweet funny romance.  Janette always seems to make me smile with the humor she bring to her story lines.  This book was good clean fun that I can recommend to anyone who enjoys light-hearted fun romance.

I loved watching Clarissa fall for her boss while masquerading as a married woman. Lots of crazy things happen that made me laugh.  This is a fluff read, a book to pick up when you just want to escape into a story that will bring you a few laughs and sighs.  Nothing deep in this one but I did admire the way both characters placed their children’s needs as a high priority.
Masquerade was originally released in 2001 as LDS Fiction but it was edited and LDS references were removed. It was Re-Released as a Romantic Comedy in November 2012.
