"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?


Then he was in front of me, trapping me between him and the counter. He braced his hands on either side of my hips, locking me in place.

“You look different,” he mused, face inches from mine, his breath smelling of mint.

“I… I’m not wearing my glasses,” I croaked, barely breathing.

His eyes narrowed. His hand lifted. His fingers glided through the strands falling over my eyes, sweeping them aside. “Your hair’s different.”

“Just my hair?”

His gaze dropped over my face, stopping at my lips. “I don’t know. You’ve always been beaut—”


Finding Kia is an incredible book. I fell in love. I couldn't believe a love story could catch my attention this much. With the cliff hanger I admit I cried. And I'm anticipating the next book FOR SURE! You can't miss Finding Kia. It's a sweet innocent story of a less then noticed nerdy invisible species of teenage girls.

Kia is less than average kind of teen. Hiding behind her glasses and sweaters... After a change in events she's made to attend the populars high end Halloween party. When she finds she can be someone else for a night and not be invisible. Meeting Adam there, her best friend's (only friend's), gorgeous brother. She's dawned to know she really likes him. But it's not her she's seeing that night...

Ending in a cliff hanger will raise your anticipation to read the continuation as I am waiting. I can't wait to see how it all ends. What will all happen and who will stay with who. And if friendships will be broken. Airicka Phoenix is an exceptional author. And I can't wait to read more of her works. Take the time to read Finding Kia and you won't be disappointed, I sure wasn't!

Finding Kia by Airicka Phoenix is the first book in The Lost Girl Series. It is an awesome book with fantastic characters that I fell in love with. It had my attention from the very beginning. 

Kia Valentine is a high school girl who is simple and keeps to herself. She isn’t like the popular girls at her school who love to be the center of attention. She is more on the nerdy side. Kia has one friend that she is close to and hangs out with and that is her best friend Nessie Chaves. They are total opposites. 

Kia does something that changes the popular girl’s attitude towards her. To repay Kia for what she did, Claudia invites her to the Halloween Masquerade Party where she has to wear a costume and a mask. Kia didn’t want to go but her best friend Nessie convinces her that she should. 

The night of the Halloween Party is when things change for Kia. She wasn’t expecting her best friend’s brother, Adam Chaves, to show up. Through out the party, Adam didn’t know that the girl he was talking to and flirting with is Kia. Will he ever find out who the mystery girl is behind the mask?

As I get to the end of the book is when I realize it ends in a cliff hanger. Thanks Airicka! The suspense is killing me! Now I have to wait for the sequel to come out so I can find out what happens.

Airicka Phoenix has done an amazing job with Finding Kia. I am really looking forward to reading the sequel in The Lost Girl Series. I definitely recommend this book to my friends to read.
