Summary from Goodreads:

 Fresh from a career-killing scandal, New York fashion girl, Maya Kirkwood, arrives in San Francisco to reinvent herself as a fine artist. She's offered the opportunity to create an installation at the Silicon Valley headquarters of a hot new tech company. Fabulous, right?

Not so much.

She can't stand Derek Whitley - wunderkind software genius and CEO of the company. Hot as he may be on the outside, inside the man is a cold, unemotional, robotic type. Way too left-brained for her right-brained self.

As Maya and Derek get to know each other, however, their facades begin to crack. She catches her first glimpse of the man behind the superhuman tech prodigy, and he starts to see her as the woman she used to be. But is this a good thing? Once that last secret is revealed, will it bring them closer together or will it tear them apart?

My summary/thoughts:

 Unmasking Maya is about Maya Kirkwood an artist who falls for Derek who is a nerdy workaholic while she installs her artwork for his company.  This wasn't so much of a romance. It felt more like a chick lit novel. There was a lot of flirting and mysteriousness.  This was a short, light read with some warm and fuzziness at the end. The main character has a lot of male issues because of what her father did. Overall, it was a fabulous read.
