TRUE COLORS BLURB:
Caitlyn Davis always cruised through life, not being the type to ruffle feathers or involve herself in high school drama…until a chance encounter with a strange, homeless man changes everything.
Suddenly, Caitlyn has the ability to see behind people’s masks. She discovers that her life isn’t as simple as she imagined and her high school is filled with secrets…some very sinister ones.
Unable to ignore her new gift, Caitlyn embarks on a mission to learn why one of her friends now appears terrified, but masks her fear behind a bright, smiling veneer. Will Caitlyn’s new ability lead her into hot water? Or is her new found vision a blessing that will expose her friends’ true colors?
Her quest will lead Caitlyn to lose friends, stand up for those in need, and even find love.
At every face tells a story…

I love it when a book has more than one love story going. I’m such a sucker for romance that the more the merrier. Sometimes those subsidiary romances actually become my favorite in a book. With True Colors there are two love stories going. There is of course, Caitlyn and Eric who are the main attraction in this series, but in the background we have one of my favorite romances going on…Indie and Micah. This is a forbidden love that neither of them have the courage to act on. They are both secretly in love with each other and the only person who can see it is Caitlyn. I loved seeing their secret desires through her eyes and I love the way Caitlyn tries to break down all their barriers and get these two together. I won’t tell you what goes down or if she even succeeds, you’ll have to read the story for that one! But I will tell you that watching Caitlyn study these two and really want to change things for them, just makes me like her even more.
Glancing at Micah’s strong, dark face I watched his mask drop away and was surprised by what I saw. Micah Wilson was a tall, muscly African-American kid. He came to the school last year having already been expelled from other schools in the area. Kids were kind of scared of him, but he joined the basketball team and quickly became a super star. I mean he was potential NBA good. His adopted parents were working on getting him a really awesome scholarship and I knew he was studying his ass off. He was in head down, good behavior mode. In spite of this, people still seemed to avoid him. He was pretty quiet and didn’t smile much. Sometimes he just looked plain mean. I wondered if it was a protection thing. He’d always been super nice to me. Maybe he played mean to avoid being pulled into anything that could take him off track.
Maybe I wasn’t that surprised by what I saw on his exposed face. His gaze was on Indie, his dark eyes drinking in every little move she made. He was in love with her. It was so obvious. Not a lusty love, but a real, genuine, I want to protect that girl and cherish her kind of love.
My heart melted to putty as I smiled at him.
“What?” He scowled, pulling the experiment sheet towards us. His mask fell back into place and I let it. I felt a little bad for reading him and discovering his secret. Man, I wished people knew what a marshmallow he was. He would be the perfect boyfriend for Indie…a strong knight for a fragile princess.
