Review Blitz: True Colors and Two Faced by Melissa Pearl

True Colors & Two Faced by Melissa Pearl

Blurb Description: Caitlyn Davis always

cruised through life, not being the type to ruffle feathers or involve herself in high school drama. That is, until a chance encounter with a strange, homeless man changes everything.

Suddenly, Caitlyn has the ability to see behind people's masks. She discovers that her life isn’t as simple as she imagined and high school is filled with secrets...some very sinister ones.

Unable to ignore her new gift, Caitlyn embarks on a mission to learn why one of her friends suddenly appears terrified, but masks her fear with a bright, smiling veneer. Will Caitlyn's new ability lead her into hot water? Or is her new found vision a blessing that will expose her friends' true colors?

Her quest will lead Caitlyn to lose friends, stand up for those in need, and even find love.

At Palisades High School every face tells a story...

First things first, I absolutely LOVE the synopsis. I mean, literally everyone has dual intentions for the things that they do- I know I do- now and then!

Sometimes these things are meant to hurt you, others are to protect you, but whatever it is, you still need to know who and why. (If that makes any sense!)
And, that's where Caitlyn Davis comes in. In a freak incident involving a homeless man, Caitlyn finds herself able to rip the 'masks' off of people's faces, showing her who they really are and what they're really feeling. Which, as you might know, is not the best superpower to have in High-School, where most people are only really looking out for themselves.

Dumping her best friend and her boyfriend after seeing who they really are, she meets Eric, her neighbor. He's the one person whose face doesn't have a second side to it...

"Every time I had the chance to talk to you, someone else would show up... That blonde friend of yours who mentally undresses me every chance she gets. The one who's always trying to force you into being someone you're not...
Or that idiot boyfriend with his arrogant strut who never looks at your beautiful face, always your body."

ERIC! Holy God! After that dialogue, I don't think I have to explain more!

With Eric's help, she finally learns to embrace her ability- and comes across something very sinister going on at school- including blackmail, extortion and cheating. 

All in all, a book worth reading:)

Blurb Description: Caitlyn Davis has an unusual gift. She knows exactly how people feel. Everyone wears a mask, but she sees the hidden truth. This ability has changed her life, both for the better
and worse. She can choose to ignore what she sees...but what happens when it involves the guy she loves?

Eric Shore knew getting involved with a girl who could read people was risky, but he couldn't help himself. Caitlyn is gorgeous and he loves being with her. Their relationship is going great...until she tells him that his step-brother and
star basketball player, Connor, is doing drugs. Having looked up to the guy for years, Eric just can't buy it. Things only get worse when Caitlyn questions the true nature of Eric's favorite teacher.

The first year at college is supposed to be amazing, but theirs is off to a rocky start. As masks are peeled away, secrets will be exposed, dangers will be revealed, and both must decide out of the people closest to them, who is telling the truth...and who is being two-faced.



Continuing from where True Colors finished off (although this can be read as a stand alone...) Two Faced takes on Caitlyn's first year at UCLA, with Eric!

College is supposed to be the time of your life, right? But for this happy (or shall we say not so happy) couple, it simply isn't.

With Caitlyn's mask- reading abilities showing her things that Eric doesn't want to see- about his step brother, and his favorite professor- things that look extremely dangerous, should she just lie, both to Eric and herself, and oretnd that nothing is happening, or should she figure it out by herself, and hope that her first love will still be there waiting at the end?

I LOVED the entire series- but I would've loved it even more if there was more about Caitlyn's family and Eric's family instead of just the two of them.

about writing each and every one of them.
