After being scarred by an unimaginable lie, Erik commits his skills with computers to expose the masks of others. His world of hacking allows him to live the life of a recluse, protected and safe, as he works to rid people of the veneers they use to protect themselves.

Christine isn't sure she likes Erik - he's cynical, secretive, and lives like a mole. But when Christine mysteriously loses the photos that are the key to her dream, she needs someone to retrieve them anonymously, and Erik is the one that can do it.

When Christine discovers Erik's skills, when she begins to fear that what he's suggested is true, she asks him to help her dig far deeper than she ever thought possible. As Erik and Christine uncover a lie she could never have conceived, as they challenge their long-held assumptions, they'll have to learn that there's only one thing that can conquer betrayal.

Love.

The story:

Christine is a beautiful young woman who dreams of being a photographer despite her mother’s insistence she become a model. When her photos mysteriously disappear from her laptop, she enlists the aid of Erik, a scarred youth who hides in his house and uses his hacking skills to spy on his peers. As the two, with such conflicting personalities of optimism and pessimism, form a friendship, will one side win out before both their lives are destroyed?


What I loved:

This is the second book of Ms. Sloan’s that I have read, and I absolutely love her writing style. It flows beautifully, and her take on the classic Beauty and the Beast story is quite unique and intriguing.


What I didn’t love:

I didn’t connect to Erik as much as I hoped. His self-appointed mission—to use his hacking skills to spy on the lives of others, ostensibly to expose the ‘masks’ they hide behind—just didn’t click with me. Christine was a great character though often a little too good to be true, and with the exception of Aidan, very few of the supporting characters were fully fleshed out. Additionally, I found enough typos to have warranted another round of editing.


My Final Verdict:

For All to See is a good YA romance that teaches a good lesson about being who you are. Her writing style breathes life into a story that’s been adapted in so many ways, and it’s hard not to enjoy it.
