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 received this ARC book to give an honest review.

Let me start off with the dedication. When you read this book, you have to read the dedication do not skip it. I think it is honestly beautiful and goes with the book perfectly.

Torture just torture, but in a good way. The ending is a cliffhanger and I really want to know what is going happen between Kia, Adam and Nessie. 

This is one of those stories that you can not help but fall in love with not only the story line but the character. Kia is someone that probably most of us can relate too. She is just an average teenage girl who doesn't dress sexy or in the new style of clothes, doesn't throw on makeup. Finds more interest in school than going to parties. She has her best friend Nessie who is a total opposite of her. But some how they are best friends and it works for both of them. 
So when Adam ends up showing an interest in Kia she finds it hard to believe. Especially on the occasion that they have crossed paths.

Now here is where the story gets interesting, there is a sweet twist in this story that will have you going COME ON KIA, just let him know how you feel. But if she does could it hurt her friendship? Because with her having feelings for Adam well his sister may not go for it. Not only that it seems someone else has her eyes on Adam and could that complicate Kia's life a bit more? She isn't looking to start drama with anyone, not even the schools most popular girl. I so wish I could write more but if I do there will be spoilers. 

Let's just say this is a story you will fall in love with and Adam Chaves is one of those book boyfriends that you just can not help but fall in love with. 

Now I have a few funny parts in here that I loved. But this one truly had me cracking up.
This is where Kia is talking about running.
"If you saw me running, you had better follow because one of two things were happening, one, the world had ended and there was only one roll of toilet paper left, or two, I was getting chased by zombies. Otherwise, this ass was hustling for nothing."
