Title: Fallon by 
Author: Soraya Naomi 
Release Date: July 26th, 2014

We all have a façade, a concealed mask we wear to portray ourselves to the world.
Fallon’s mask is real, what you see is what you get. Growing up with two loving parents in Chicago, graduating in Chicago, and now working a job she loves, she enjoys her life.

Her untarnished world is shaken when Luca crosses her path.
Luca’s mask is tightly controlled. Distrust, rivalry, and violence rule his life.
When confronted with insecurities, when the one you love wears his mask perfectly, when your life unravels and you don’t know why, do you keep trusting the person you love? Everyone has a façade. Everyone has an ulterior motive.

Cliffhanger: Yes
Spoiler-free review

Fallon’s life is fairly uncomplicated until Luca starts showing up everywhere she that she is.   She falls hard for the Italian speaking, green-eyed hottie businessman.  Fallon puts on “blinders” and chooses to ignore the warning signs of Luca's sketchy behavior.  Finally his disposable phones, random meetings and travel become too much to ignore.  Luca’s shady actions start to add up and negatively impact her feelings for Luca.  Is he married?  Does Fallon know too much already?

Luca is a criminal figurehead in a violent mob organization.  He falls for Fallon while she is under mob related surveillance to find her ex-boyfriend.  He wasn’t supposed to fall for her.  Luca knows he can’t be in a relationship with someone who isn’t connected to his world. Could he reveal himself to Fallon and would she stay with him?

I liked that this book wasn’t a run of the mill insta-love book.  After a lot of character and relationship building, this story picked up speed at 50% of the way in.  Luca and Fallon’s chaotic and sexy love story unravels from alternating points of view.  They love, lust and lie to each other and themselves.  This romantic suspense thriller has a lot of unexpected plot twists. For Fallon, it ends with a cliffhanger…but that shouldn’t stop you from reading this book. I will read book two as soon as it's available (SOON I HOPE).  What an amazing debut book from this new author!

About the Author:
Soraya Naomi resides in Europe with her entrepreneur fiancé. She attended university in The Netherlands. Although she reads many genres, she favors intense, dark, seductive, and provocative novels where the male character loves fiercely without remorse or boundaries. She has a passionate obsession for the written word and indulges in chocolate pastries much too often.
There are books full of great writing that don't have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story... don't be like the book-snobs who won't do that.
Read sometimes for the words--the language. Don't be like the play-it-safers who won't do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book.
― Stephen King
