Summary

A successful LA artist, Roman Velasco appears to have everything he could possibly want - money, women, fame. Only Grace Moore, his reluctant, newly hired personal assistant, knows how little he truly has. 

The demons of Roman's past seem to echo through the halls of his empty mansion and out across his breathtaking Topanga Canyon view. But Grace doesn't know how her boss secretly wrestles with those demons: by tagging buildings as the Bird, a notorious but unidentified graffiti artist - an alter ego that could destroy his career and land him in prison. 

Like Roman, Grace is wrestling with ghosts and secrets of her own. After a disastrous marriage threw her life completely off course, she vowed never to let love steal her dreams again. But as she gets to know the enigmatic man behind the reputation, it's as if the jagged pieces of both of their pasts slowly begin to fit together...until something so unexpected happens that it changes the course of their relationship - and both their lives - forever.

Hope for lives traumatised by violence and the care system

The Masterpiece portrays the journey from trauma and violence to
Hope. The reality of fear and shame, chains that shape a life and the reality of the power of love strong enough to break those chains offering a life of Hope and Peace. A well written book from the heart to the heart, this book talks honestly about pain, justice and restoration. It often reduced me to tears. I loved it.

Christian Propaganda

Beware - Do not read unless you wish to be endlessly berated about demons and that you and all good caring people will be tortured for all eternity if they don't follow 'Jesus'.
It says a lot about this 'christian' author that she is prepared to lie on the resume (not one mention of christianity) and fraudulenty take peoples money. Ms Rivers if you believe in this stuff, have the bravery to let people know what you are foisting on them - lying is supposed to be a sin

Misleading synopsis

I wasn't familiar with the author and the synopsis from Audible doesn't really make clear that this is Christian fiction. it's not to my taste and the constant use of 'curse word' and '4 letter word' was very grating- can Christians not handle realistic language? Anyway, I'll probably stick with it until a 2 for 1 sale comes along on Audible and then not finish the story- I can guess where it's going to go!

Title details not accurate

First, the positives. The narrator is excellent and I liked listening to her voice. The story is quite engaging and I stuck with it as I wanted to know the outcome.

However, and this is a big one… the title details give absolutely NO indication of how much of this novel is dedicated to Christian beliefs and that this is very much Christian fiction. I found this really quite overpowering in the story and it was all a bit much. Audible really need to update the title details so that people know what they are getting.
