If you’re looking for a sweet teenage romance story to read, then check out Masquerading Our Love by Audrey Rich!
Junior year has been tough on Thalía Reynari.
A new high school, trying to fit in with new friends, schoolwork, family commitments. With everything going on in her life, Thalía could use a break, an adventure.
So when Thalía meets Christopher Cooper, the most gorgeous guy in town, her life should change for the better, right?
Don’t bet on it.
Thalía and Christopher find themselves caught in the middle of a simmering feud that’s kept the two families apart for a decade. And no one is sure if young love will be enough to bridge this divide.
As they hide their relationship behind masks Thalía must decide if this new love is worth losing her parents’ approval.
We stood, our hands clasped. Hope filled his eyes. “Remember, I’ll always be your lighthouse against any storm, no matter how severe.” He planted a kiss on my open mouth and winked. “I’ll text you after eight.”
The lights of his car disappeared, but I didn’t head in. Holding the column for strength, the one I needed to continue with this masquerade, my brain again went into overdrive.
What if my dad gets really upset? Well, at least now he knows him. Hopefully he won’t freak when he finds out; although he might be more disappointed than angry at our deception. What a potential catastrophe. He’s my own lighthouse against any storm. My lighthouse.
What readers are saying:
“Was transported to a sweeter time as I read this book. Got caught up in the innocence and complexity of pre-adult characters. And I languished in their sincerity. Have to applaud the author on a well-written adventure into first Love, and beyond. But even more… Thanks for reminding me of the purity of love at the apex of discovery. WELL-DONE!” S. Clarke
“This is a great YA novel!! I bought the book for my 14 year old daughter and it’s perfect! I loved the fact that it is smut-free but still filled with teen romance.… Kudos to the author given this was her first book. I am looking forward to Ms. Rich’s future work for my daughter to read.” V.C.
