Finding Kia Synopsis


“Maybe you should avoid me tonight.”

His arm slipped around my waist and I was drawn into his chest. “If I only have this one night with you, the last thing I’m going to do is stay away.”

Kia Valentines had always accepted the fact that she was a nerd, a nobody. It was a badge she wore with honor, until the day she saved Claudia DeLorenzo’s life and lost herself.

When offered the chance to shed her identity for a single night, Kia never believed it would change her life. It was one night. It meant nothing, or it shouldn't have. But that single night turned out to be her undoing when she finds passion in the arms of the one person she can never have.

Adam Chaves was more than just a gorgeous face, he made her laugh, but more importantly, when he looked at her, she felt like the most beautiful girl on earth. But Adam has no idea that Kia was the girl behind the mask and Kia has no intention of telling him. But a secret can only be kept if no one else knows about it. Claudia knows and she wants something Kia isn't willing to give in order to keep it.

Will Kia succumb? And just how far is Claudia willing to go to get what she wants?



“She’s talked about you, but she never warned me just how dangerous you were.”

Somehow, I really doubted he meant in a Charlie’s Angels, sexy in tights kind of way. “I am not dangerous!”

His brow lifted as his gaze darted to the binder drip drying in the sink. “Could have fooled me.”

This was so not the way I wanted him to remember me, like some clumsy whack job with balance issues. “Those were accidents.”

“And the restaurant?”

“Accident!” I was sticking to that story if it killed me.

The corner of his lips twitched. “Sure thing, nena.”

“Kia,” I corrected him. “My name—”

“I know,” he said. “I haven’t forgotten.”

Right. “You just called me Nena.” Yeah, I was so not impressed.

He rolled a pink tongue over his teeth. “It means baby in Spanish.”

Baby? He called me baby? Wait, what kind of baby? The hot, seductive sort or the, you need a diaper change sort?

He laughed. “Do you always think so hard?”

“Yes,” I said automatically. “I think. I’m a thinker.”


I frowned. “Why?” Better yet… “How?”

He grinned. “I’m a doer.”

I just adore Finding Kia! I love Kia!! Her biggest weakness and I think biggest struggle through most of this book is seeing what she believes to be flaws as just that... flaws. She like most any woman will be self concious of their most precious traits that makes them the woman they are... their hair Color, eye color, having their more dominate features resemble their fathers, and the fact that they believe that that are a nerd or are not desired or could never be desired by a man they have interest in. Its all garbage!! Everyone is uniquely beautiful and eventually Kia starts to realize just by dressing herself up a bit isn't going to change her on the inside. Kias friend Nessa is amazing she is bold, beautiful, has an edge and brassyness that Kia admires but is also afraid of when it comes time to reveal something that will upset Nessa her one and only friend. Adam, ahhhh Adam... he is "That Boy!" every woman I know has had a boy at one time or another be the one who if he says hi you mumble and trip over your words like a bafoon! The kind of boy that is your kryptonite you would do anything to be close to him but not close enough where in your wildest dreams would anything happen. I read this book in like an hour and a half my plan was to go to sleep early but I just couldn't set it down!! I am wound for the next book and I will have to patiently wait or there is always the email Airicka everyday to see how the progress is coming ;) For now though I think I may just reread. Happy reading friends!!!
