But what he wants is poles apart from her daydreams “You're very pretty Fred” he says matter of factly Then he brings his face closer and traces his lips along my ear “I'd really like to fuck you” And her assumptions that he might be gay go down the drain BLACK WHITE AND ALL THE SHADES OF GREY When Freda's roommate and friend Nora asks him “So Nicholas what do you do for a living?”“I'm a cabaret performer” he answers simply And they've no idea what it entails till they meet herVIVICA BLUEAnd it's none other than NICHOLAS This is astounding amazing so incredibly thrilling Only today a world travelling cabaret performing drag ueen took me out for lunch and named me as his new best friend The idea plunges my black and white world into a vibrant techni colour rainbow And then a very valid uestion arises in her mindso she asks him about it subtlynot He levels me with a funny look “You think I'm gay?I don't think I've ever heard of a straight drag ueen”He smiles wryly before knocking back his shot He stares up at the ceiling when he mutters “Yeah well you're looking at one” “You're joking right?

C and Freda feels like her black and white existence is plunged into a rainbow of colour when she's around him When he walks into a room he lights it up with his uick wit and charisma He is a travelling cabaret performer but Freda doesn't know exactly what that entails until the curtains pull back on his opening night She is gob smacked and entirely intrigued to see him take to the stage in drag Later on Nicholas asks her if she would like to be 5 odd and unconventional romance stars “We all paint on a face to show the world For some of us that's uite literal” Wow Just WOW I have never read another book uite like this one before It completely blew me away I mean I never would have thought straight drag ueen and romance would fit in the same category but I was wrongPainted Faces is about Freda a twenty something Irish woman who works odd jobs and has some terrible ex boyfriends This story begins when Fred has a new neighbor move in and he immediately expresses interest in her Nicholas is attractive and suave and despite his advances Fred almost has him pegged as gay But then she see's his show and realizes he's a drag ueen and everything begins to make senseNicholas offers Fred a job working as his assistant and she accepts As time goes by the attraction between the two of the builds but Fred is wary of his advances Nicholas has slept his way across Europe and she isn't sure if he's serious about her or just looking to shag her “I want to ruin you Freda in the best way possible” I honestly didn't know what to expect going into this book I had read some of Cosway's books before but a friend had told me to read some of her earlier work as it was a little bit different I then found out this friend hadn't read this book yet lol I'm so glad I read this book and I kind of can't believe I haven't read it before Why has no one recommended me this book???? Book friends you are slacking jkjkI loved both characters so much Fred was an amazing heroine she had insecurities yet she stood up for herself She was understanding and accepting of ideas new to her Was she perfect? No But that's what I liked most about her Nicholas oh he's something else He changed what I thought about masculinity In a literary world of alpha males and dominance here came a different kind of romantic hero and his uniueness shone through the pages “I might not have a boyfriend but I have cupcakes and those tasty bastards haven't let me down yet” This was such the perfect blend of romance and angst for me I couldn't put the book down I was reading well into the early hours of the morning when I should have been sleeping Believe me this book was worth not being able to adult properly the next day I was so enraptured by this uniue and special story I didn't want it to end So as you can tell I bloody loved this book I find myself wanting to go back and reread it even as I type just to be near Nicholas and Freda again I can honestly say this is my favorite Cosway book to date and I probably will be binge reading the rest of her books sometime real soon “It feels like nobody in the history of the world has loved another person as much as I love you I love you so much it hurts You make me smile you make me laugh you make me burn”
