Growing up, Chyna was handed everything on a silver platter. She never wanted for anything, except love—unconditional love from her parents. Love was a foreign emotion, and watching her parents love/hate relationship was never easy.

So when it came to her personal life, she made sure she never had to relive that. With looks that could kill, it was simple for Chyna to be the love 'em and leave 'em kind of girl. And she had always been okay with it. She would rather be single the rest of her life then end up as miserable as her parents. So when a man rescued her after she was drugged in a night club, she never expected to start a relationship with him.

But one chance meeting changes it all. Chyna is offered a once in a lifetime opportunity that could sky rocket her career, and she is forced to make a decision that could ruin everything.

A great addition to the Avoiding series, KA Linde is becoming a new favorite author of mine!

Let me just start by telling you, I adore KA Linde and her writing style. Yea, I have issues with her characters, and I don't agree with everything that happens, but KA Linde knows how to write and knows how to suck you into her world. I already read/reviewed the first two book in the series. and I was super excited to learn that KA, decided to write a novella, not about the main characters, but about a supporting character, Chyna.

I freaking LOVE Chyna. She's fierce, has her friends backs, and she just f*ckin rocks! I mean she's the type that walks into the room and everyone will stop and look, and she's a beauty, who just doesn't give a sh*t. She's the kind of bff who you want in your group, especially when you go clubbin' --Flasback to my wild days-- Yep, I was a clubbin' chick.  There was a period in my twenties when all I did was live and breathed the nightlife, so yea, having a chick like Chyna, in your group is a bonus.  But, let's get back to the book.

The last book in the Avoiding series has Chyna  jet setting off to Milan to model, for an elite designer. She doesn't need the money, because she has enough of it, she's doing it more to A. Pacify her parents B. To Hook-up with the hottie designer.  C. and maybe to get away from a break-up with her bf, whom just happens to be someone who Chyna has fallen for, which never really happened before. See Chyna is the female version of a typical male, bed em and throw em out. Now, I wouldn't consider her a slut -nope I could totally accept her and her lifestyle. So, she just had a sudden break-up with her bf, Adam. Adam is sweet, and totally not chyna's usual type. Well, like I said Chyna doesn't do relationships, so this is a first for her. She's not used to being with one guy, and all the stuff that goes along with relationships, but she's trying, and she's willing to let all the other guys go. UNTIL,  a misunderstanding ensues and Chyna is done, and off to Milan, where she becomes the star of the show, for the hot Milan designer, Marco. Not only a star on the runway, but also in his bed. Milan seems to bring the old Chyna back, but she misses NYC, and her BFF, Alexa, and maybe Adam.

Without spoiling the rest, I can tell you I liked this addition to the series. The sex was HOT, but I never really connected w/ Marco and Chyna.
I liked learning about what happened with Chyna during the last book Avoiding Responsibility. I missed her in AR, as she was barely in that book. So, this book talks about what she did in alternating chapters of what happened before/during/after Milan.
Loved the ending!! I also must comment on the cover, because this is how I saw Chyna.

4.5/5 stars


  1. *bounces* I love Chyna too! You know I'm a huge fan of this series. So addicting.

  2. Wait, so this takes place during AR? While she and Adam were split? I'm confused! lol I loved Adam and Chynna together. Yay for hot sex! Even though you don't really feel Marco and Chynna.

    Holy crap. My comment is just a pile of rambling sentence fragments. I hope you're able to get what I'm trying to say here, which is basically: Adam and Chynna must be together!

  3. I bought book one thanks to you, and i need to read it, I love that this author is becoming a fav for you!
