Fearless on the outside— a lie.
I’m a fraud, hiding behind a mask of perfection. My reality very different.
The captain. The leader. The Queen Bee.
None of it real— all just an illusion.
Perception is everything and I use it to get what I want, when I want, refusing
to let anyone stand in my way.
Until he shows me that he’s not the man I expected. He’s not just the quiet
one… the innocent one.
But the one to finally tear away the mask and look beneath the surface. The
only one who sees me, gets me, challenges me.
He’s already changed my life in a way I never expected.
My secret could make us or break us, but I know one thing for sure… I’ll
protect it fiercely.
That’s the real me. Chelsea Fierce.
The girl behind the mask with everything to lose.
Tracy recently-ish turned thirty and lives in a cute Cotswold village in
England with her husband, daughter and lovable but slightly crazy dog. Having
always been a bookaholic with her head stuck in her Kindle Tracy decided to try
her hand at a story idea she dreamt up and hasn’t looked back since.
Chelsea is the girl that you love to hate and although she has made bad choices in the past, she is willing to accept responsibility however not everyone is willing to forgive and forget. In the past she held the power but that is no longer the case and she must show by words and action that she is not the girl she used to be and that starts with Shane.
Shane is a member of the football who seems destined for a professional career if his overbearing father has anything to say about it. As much as he detests the price that he has paid for Chelsea’s actions keeping his distance is not an option. They have their obstacles to overcome the emotional and physical connection between them is off the charts.
Both these characters are compelling in their own way as he learn that Chelsea has a good side and that Shane has a bad side which makes their relationship only more intriguing and the emotional pull of this story was unexpected.
