Publisher's Summary

Modern-day pirates took more than Jori Virtanen's friends; they stole his face. Not only does the 24-year-old former model have to confront months of reconstructive surgery, he discovers his previous life was as superficial as his looks. Jori struggles to make a new life for himself as an artist while evading the press. They expect a hero, but he knows the truth. His beauty masks a beast.
Olivia Howard's given up a normal life for her job, and the sacrifices are finally paying off. The 26-year-old talk-show host's ratings are heading to the top of the charts. Her dream is to make a difference in people's lives, but the studio wants mind fluff-like interviewing hot model Jori Virtanen. When Olivia learns the guy helped rescue passengers on a cruise excursion from kidnappers, she knows this is the story she needs to make her case. The only problem is the hero was injured, and now he's disappeared.
The more Olivia learns about the man behind the scar, the more intrigued she becomes. But Jori is no girl's happily ever after. Once she finds him, Olivia has to free his heart and help heal the beast.

Torn Canvas, Beautiful Art

Wow, it's been a while since I got so absorbed in a story that I had to pause life so I could immerse myself in another world. It may have gotten a little ridiculous because I could not turn off the audible book. Instead of doing what I had scheduled for yesterday and today, I have been cleaning, decorating, driving, anything I could to keep the book playing on my phone! The book has some great, unexpected turns. I became a bigger fan with each chapter.

This is one I'll buy to keep on my shelf, and I may listen to it again! Loved the author's detailed descriptions, realistic, flawed, but good characters. I'm still on a high from finishing this great story. Loved it!

Tristan Hunt is Jori

What about Tristan Hunt’s performance did you like?

I read this book first and really enjoyed it but then had the opportunity to listen to it. I wasn't sure at first about the reader and thought his voice might have been a little over dramatic but I quickly found it engaging and slightly haunting and a great voice for Jori's deep internal struggles. It really became exactly the voice I would imagine for Jori through his struggle, opening up and eventual triumph. As much as I enjoyed reading this book, I enjoyed it even more the second time while listening.
