Behind the Mask Synopsis:
Former model Chalise Boudreau returns to Louisiana after ten years and faces an uncertain future. Watching her budget, she’s living with her mother and plans to open a luxury salon, but she fears the community sees her homecoming as a failing, and she knows any malicious gossip will jeopardize her success.

Once bad-boy, now entrepreneur Chaz Riboucheaux is home and trying to rebuild his old reputation. He believes one of his companies, the Magnolia May, a pirate ship, can make Ascension a tourist destination, but the mayor refuses to grant him a lease at the city’s dock.

Chalise and Chaz come face to face at a Twelfth Night party. Years ago, he stood her up and left her brokenhearted. Now her brain is at war with her heart, but her body has a mind of its own. As Chaz leads her across the dance floor, he knows when the music stops it won’t be the end of their waltz. He has questions only she can answer, and he won’t stop until he gets what he wants.

If you love everything New Orleans and Mardi Gras, then you will love this book. 

Chalise Boudreau is from New Orleans and has been gone for a long time. After having her heart broken, she left to go model and try out living where no where knew her. 

Chaz Riboucheaux  is the boy who broke Chalise's heart. He is the boy from the wrong side of the tracks, who is now a repuatable business man. The boy, who her parents once hated is now the man her mom is pushing her to be with. 

Chalise is now wanting to open a fancy spa in her hometown. and Chaz owns the building Chalise wants to run her business in. 
The chemistry between Challse and Chaz was ok.  The story was ok as well. 

This book was an ok read for me. I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it.
