The events of Claudia’s party were nothing more than a distant memory as far as Kia was concerned. She was ready to resume her life as though that night had never happened. But it’s a slippery slope keeping a secret and Kia’s about to learn just how hard when she’s faced with the truth and the consequences of her decision.

Adam Chaves was no stranger to girls wanting him. He was no stranger to breaking hearts, although never intentionally. What he didn’t understand was how Kia could undress him, touch him, burn him with her eyes and still keep him at arm’s length when it was evident how much it cost her. But what Kia didn’t realize was that he had never given up on anything in his life and he wasn’t about to start now. He would have his girl even if it meant he had to kidnap her to do it.

“You better hurry.” The low, lazy drawl had me turning back to the room. Adam lay on his back, arms folded beneath his head. “I think I’m beginning to doze off again.” Stifling my laugh, I stole a peek up and down the hall before slipping inside and shutting the door. I crept across the room, careful not to stir Kenny who snored like he’d swallowed a blow horn. “I don’t know if I want to wake you,” I murmured, stopping when my knee bumped the edge of the mattress. “You might throw me into a snow bank, too.” There was something intense about the way he watched me. I didn’t know what it was, but it had my heart galloping and my body reacting in a way that brought a flush to my face. “The only place I’m going to throw you is right here.” He had my wrist before I could catch his meaning. I was yanked onto the bed, still warm and rumpled from his body. I might have squeaked or gasped or something, but it was a distant memory when his mouth took claim of mine. It wasn’t a kiss. It was war. It was cruel and hot and demanding. It was his hands ripping up my body, fisting in my clothes, in my hair as his body restrained mine, pinning me to the mattress. He kissed me as though he would die if he didn’t consume me. My legs were roughly thrown apart and my thighs were filled by the pressure of his hips settling into place. A sound between a whimper and a cry left me as his body aligned with mine in a way that sent fire racing through my veins. I was only barely conscious of anything except how much I wanted him to keep going. It was only due to the snort-grunt from the other occupant in the room that I tumbled down a notch from the heights he was taking me. “Kenny,” I gasped, my body bowing into his. He snarled. His fingers tightened in my hair, making me cry out as sharp slivers of delicious pleasure ripped through me. “Adam!” he hissed. “When you’re in my bed, it’s only Adam.” “Adam!” I obediently complied. Then he kissed me again.



OK this is gonna be short and sweet because if I go on for too long I'm just gonna be gushing and rambling and you won't be able to keep up with me :P

As I stated in my review of Finding Kia, I absolutely love Kia and Adam. And I just loved them even more in this one. These two are just perfect for each other. And guess what?! We get Adam's POV!! Yay!!! I had never been so happy. This guy makes me swoon so hard! As for Kia? Seriously, everyone needs a friend like her. Completely loyal, amazingly trustworthy and totally kick-ass. She is one heroine to look up to.

Now, the main thing I want to talk about is Nessie. My god this poor girl! For most of the book I wanted to throttle her. Her treatment of Adam and Kia and her parents was horrible! But when I found out what she was going through? My heart broke for her. Airicka deals with a tough issue in this book. Bullying is something that a lot of people have gone through, myself included, and I want to applaud Airicka for how she tackles the issue. I teared up when I read of her own bullying history. There is a fantastic message in Revealing Kia and one I hope many will listen to.  There were times when I was being bullied that I felt so alone and depressed. But I knew that I had genuine friends and that I shouldn't push them away. I found myself relating to Nessie. Even though I was never bullied to such an extreme, I still knew how she felt. I became so frustrated with her, screaming at her to not push everyone away, that she would get through this. By the end of the book I was there crying along with her, wanting to wrap her up and make the pain go away. 

This is a beautifully written, heartbreaking read. I highly recommend this to those of us who have ever felt unloved or unwanted. Thank you Airicka for another phenomenal read.
[PS: I would love a story about Kenny and Nessie. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge... ;)]
