Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter's Eye eI have to give you five stars forffort I binge read all three of the Masked Emotions books written by local author V E Campudoni Now I am writing this review based on all three books on what I had read so far and I will copy and past this review for all three book With that said This book is not like your traditional BDSM novels there are a lot of characters beside the story main ones The writing style strongly reflects both James Patterson or Stephen King Meaning that beside the main characters the side characters also plays an intricate part of the tale However jumping from character to character within a chapter will fend off readers of this genre Readers do not care about the side characters they only want to care about the main characters and their interactions with one another They will not care about Enzio s sister who was gang rape by Lana s boyfriend Samuel and his buddies and she becomes hell bent on revenge They would not care about Samuel becoming instantly remorseful for what he had done They would not care about Akira who is trying to get Enzio to work in his club or his adopted daughters Juno and Miko They would not care about Joslin or Rachel who in part help mold Enzio to who he is Or his stalker Gia who in my opinion is written very well Grand Illusion: The Third Reich, the Paris Exposition, and the Cultural Seduction of France especially her decent into madness Then there s the characters who get introduced later on in the other books Jayce Raul Donnie and Lochlan Readers who would want a instant hot and heavy read will not like thisYet for a reader like myself I do care Mr Campudoni created a world not a story and in that world there are gears that are moving different paths on a long road that all leads to the same destination The pacing of the writing felt like fun and mayhem There s comedy love hate conniving murder lies deception and lust go into making this series something new for a genre that felt like a cookie formula than anythinglse It s great when you know the primary characters know what kind of people they are and how well they interact with one another At first it was confusing trying to figure out who the villain were but I completely understood where V E Campudoni was going with his story and he did an xcellent job on keeping the chemistry between the characters so perfectly in tune Basically its a standard soap opera formula and I applause V E Campudoni for at least trying to break the mold The Masked Emotions Series Linger Longing and Laid Bare plays out like an interesting television series in your mind Keeping my interest and kept me turning the pages I wanted to know about all of the characters and their personal struggles with their inner demons I truly njoyed the sexual scenes and the hardcore BDSM scenes and I truly appreciate that unlike all of the Doms and Masters in very single BDSM books out there Enzio is a Dom who cares He is not a perfect Adonis of a man He has doubts he has fear and has feelings This vulnerability is what I always wanted with a Dom character Not some jackass who instantly comes into the room and take a helpless Woman With No Self Worth And Basically with no self worth and basically them like personal whore I appreciate the realism to the story I appreciate the raw motions and I very much appreciate that he is using none of the common formula that I am used to seeing in these types of novels The Masked Emotions Series is a diamond in the rough People will hate it without a shadow of a doubt People will get confused on the amount of characters this series has and how they all are connected People may not like the cliffhanger Hard Bread (Phoenix Poets endings Yet people like myself willnjoy this soap opera All of them are great reads with good writing and I learn something new about Electromyography for Experimentalists each character and their relationships withach other as well as a peek into their lives Then there s the club The Looking Glass has to be the best sexual club Forgetful of Their Sex: Female Sanctity and Society, ca. 500-1100 ever written and the way it was described and the culture makes it a character on its own I amxcited for the fourth installment of this five book series Don t be surprised that in a couple of years down the line this series becomes a live action cable series I say this because that is how it plays out when you read it and I can guaranteed you that will be the only "Time Everyone Will Realized "everyone will realized how precious and uniue this series really is Wow justwowThis book is jam packed with twists and turns My motions ran so high at times that I had to put it down and walk away You ve opened my yes abs my previously closed mind to a lifestyle I never understood You have truly inspired me my friend job well doneI highly recommend this series to veryone When I finally started reading Laid Bare knowing that I would be returning to the world of the Looking Glass Enzio Lana and the others I was like However the first few minutes into the story I was already fighting back the tears and I was shocked to discover the choices that Lana made but it was understandable Laid Bare is dark and sets the tone for wh. LAID BARE is Book 3 of this Smoldering BDSM Erotic Romance Series He is the King of SMand a much darker Dom The Grand Mistress of the Master’s Society arrives to make sure Enzio can still perform as a Dom after allowing himself to become motionally involved with a client as well as feeding into a stalker’s obsession Daring her to doubt him with his voice low and coarse Enzio instructs the Grand Mistress in a game he has chosen just for her showing her a much darker Dom Revenge may be a dish best served cold but Enzio serves it up hotvery hot after learning that Lana has been abused by her boyfriend Jayce Harrison Discovering that Jayce’s father is a member of The Looking Glass Enzio plans a very special night with the man’s wife Excerpt “Good Wicked Loving Lies evening Mr Harrison” Enzio said “or should I call you Jasper” “Enzio” Jasper cheerfully spoke “Are you a member of The Looking Glass as well” “Something like that” Enzio said with a wide smile Jasper looked around nervously “Martha is here as well but she’s in one of the rooms” Enzio raised anyebrow “It’s something she wanted” “That’s good to know” Enzio said smiling wi. ,
D to be a living breathing character like the Looking Glass and I just want of the two Now for the sensitive readers there might be well too much sex Now don t get me wrong the smut is SERIOUSLY top notch I mean panting while reading smokin hot But there s a LOT of it and in ways that some may feel that it don t necessarily add to the story However it does Without giving spoilers there s several scenes that is hot and heavy and dark and scary and amazing and definitely adds to the plot Our lovers are wounded in the worst possible way and in order to heal some of those wounds they have to go to some scary places That means that the sex is an important part of the story Then there s the many twists within this story Without giving away spoilers I must say that I found myself screaming at my tablet as well as being left in a state of shock and for the first time so far in this intense series No cliffhanger Our characters have a HFN but it s obvious that it s going to be short lived thanks to Joslin s aka Claudette s stepbrother Duke I looked at past reviews on this series and I found it funny how they kept comparing Enzio with Gideon Cross and Christian Grey when I see no comparison Cross maybe better than Grey but he is nothing in comparison to Enzio If anything the two of them would be members of the Looking Glass whom Enzio would have to teach a lesson to Enzio Salazar is no longer my book boyfriend he s my book husband and V E Campudoni you have made a serious fan out of me and inspired me to review books once again It s books like yours that makes this all worth wild and I cannot wait for your fourth installment Laid Bare Masked Emotions Book 3 by VECampudoniThe next instalment of this series is great Once again VECampudoni manages to juggle the complex characters and their uniue situations in the air all at the same time The La heredera del mar ease with which the author tells a story is almost breathtaking as all the strings are brought together to tie up nicely to bring it to annd Even as it still leaves it open to start the next book with another situation that has not yet been taken care ofWe start of where the last story nded with Enzio lying in the hospital after having been stabbed by his crazy stalker Gia Lucco They ve already had to resuscitate him after dying and then Lana tells him that she feels betrayed by him and doesn t think they can be friends any too She starts seeing Jayce Harrison again the bully that controls her and along with his friends beat Enzio to a pulp on Prom Night placing him in hospital where he had

kink Club that Jayce loses it arguing with Lana on the way home But it s when Enzio finds out that he and his friend Brian have raped Lana that things step up and the plan to make them pay begins There are many assorted plots in the air at the same time to get revenge for different people and personally I can t wait for the next book to come out to carry on the story Will Lana and Enzio ver make it through the whole sordid mess that their lives have become to reunite together Or do other characters in their lives play their parts to divert their love for ach otherA recommended read Lana
