 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.”


My Review of Finding Kia!
Rated it 5 Awesome Stars!

FK was an awesome read, why? Let me tell you. I am already a huge fan of Phoenix, and her books get better and better.  This book, Finding Kia, had the same swoon worthy Romance, but she added in a bit of  mystery and fun. As the reader, YOU know "the woman behind the mask" but Airicka still manages to twist your insides as the characters work to find Kia.  It's not all fun and masks, this one night of mysterious fun had unforeseen consequences...and a frenemy to go along with it.

Kia~ LOVE HER! She is the nerdy girl we all harbour whether outwardly or not. The sweater wearing, get up and out the door in a hurry girl.

Adam~ He's pretty freakin' cool! He has all the makings of a swoon worthy book boyfriend. He's cute, charming, and exciting..which means one thing...He could be dangerous to a tender heart.

Claudia~ She's a nice-sty kinda girl.  That is all I am going to say so I don't give anything away.

Vanessa~ We should all be so lucky as to have a friend like her.

As for flow of the story~  Well I kept clicking the page button on my kindle. I read this in a day because I couldn't put it down.  And Plot?  Yea, I got lost in it.

So in closing, basically, Finding Kia, was a kick ass read. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good story full of laughter, sauciness, smart-ass remarks and all that goes with it.
