Ericka leads a quiet, regular life, except when she performs onstage as Little Lotte. She also chats online every night as Lottie to a man she knows as the Phantom. They have developed a relationship and have agreed to finally get together after one of Lottie’s shows. But he will be wearing a mask, just like the Phantom in the Phantom of the Opera.
Ericka meets her Phantom, but he has rules. If she wants him to stop, she must use Chandelier as a safe word, and under no circumstance may she touch his mask. She agrees and they have a quick interlude in a supply closet.
As their relationship progresses, Ericka decides she wants more than just IM chats and Domination sex filled interludes. But the Phantom (Cristian) is afraid to reveal his true identity.
This story is about two people that take on different personas to find love, but need to take off their “masks” in order to keep it.
Cristian suffers from physical deformities and massive guilt from the incident that caused them. And Ericka must overcome her shyness to become more like her alter ego Little Lotte.
I really enjoyed this book. It was heartwarming to watch these characters overcome their insecurities to become a loving couple. Cindy Jacks does a wonderful job bringing them together while overcoming adversity. This was an interesting take on Phantom of the Opera.
Erika leads a quiet life—at least in the real world. But her alter-ego, Little Lottie, is a singer at a local club and engages in a wild online romance. For months she’s been communicating with a mysterious man, known only to her as the Phantom.
Her lover contacts her via texts, emails and instant messages. When he offers to fulfill her desires in real life, she can’t refuse. The only condition to meeting for their sizzling assignations—he wears a mask to hide his true identity. Despite his reluctance to reveal himself to Erika, he tears down her inhibitions and unleashes her suppressed passions, taking possession of her body and soul.
Erika may have finally found the one man who can sate her every longing…if only he would show her the man behind the mask.
