Overview

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.

Booooo..... this book sucked. I skipped through 75% of it. It made no sense. The relationships lack Everthing. Why can't people write good books worth any time anymore.

Its short like a novella- I just think readers should know that. I wish I had known. I was just expecting so much more.

I enjoyed Chyna's story. To see her grow on a personal level was fantastic to watch. How many of us have made that journey or are still caught up in the whirlwind of life...all the doubts and fears?? I don't think that a person has to be rich to experience this growth. It was a really nice read.

This is a Novella based around Chyna from the Avoiding series (K.A. Linde). I normally do not get excited to read stories about the supporting characters of a series, but K.A. Linde's writing is so down to earth that I instantly fell in love with this book. Chyna is absolutely hysterical and found myself wishing she was my BFF. We get a glimpse into the time just prior to, during & after her time in Italy. We get to see more of her relationship with Adam & we get to meet Adam's brother John. A.I. is a must read & If you haven't read Avoiding Commitment or Avoiding Responsibility, you should. K.A. Linde is a brilliant author & i recommend her books to anyone that will listen. - "I think he was madly in love with you," she whispered, staring intently into Chyna's green eyes. Chyna's mouth popped open in surprise. She was not expecting that. "Then, you don't know the first thing about love."

I liked 1 and 2 better but this story wasn't bad...I would have liked more development in the story of Chyna with Adam.

The Way I See It Eeeeeeeeeep! When I say, K.A. Linde does NOT DISAPPOINT...I flipping mean it! The Avoiding Series is one of my many guilty pleasures(winky face)! This Novella was my W.O.W. a while back, and can I just say, I’m glad I pushed all of my other books aside for this! Chyna is one of “My Fav’s” because, she is absolutely fabulous! When I saw there was to be a Novella about her, I was floored! When I saw how long it was, I was delighted! This book is “real,” fluff-free, and chalk full of drama! Just the way I like it! A-lluring, Marco is without a doubt a delicious honey trap. V-icious, modeling is a cut-throat industry, and K.A. Linde shows us how crushing it can be! O-pportunity,Chyna reaches for the stars, and achieves her heart's desire... I-ncredulous, was Chyna, at what Cassandra drops in her lap! D-evour, what you will do with this great read! I-ndecisive, is what I am over Adam or Marco. N-aughty, steamy, sexy and sultry! ;) G-orgeous Star! Chyna shines throughout the book, and I love her even more! I-ntimacy, something Chyna doesn’t yet know she truly desires. N-otorious, Marco carves his way into her life, introducing her to his lifestyle. T-ame, Adam loves Chyna in a way she has never known. I-ncriminating... vengeance finds a way to crush unrealized Dreams. M-arco, Marco, Marco! I want more! I need more of him! A-dam, honest, Kind, Loving, and he is all the things Marco is not. C-hyna, Strong, Desirable, Confidant, she shines, and sucks you right in. Y-ES!! YES!! HUGE APPLAUSE!! THIS.BOOK.WAS.AMAZING. A Seriously entertaining, and deliciously captivating read! Drama, drama, drama, love, love, love, Chyna’s story! It was everything I’d hoped for and more!! My Fav’s Chyna Was there any doubt? Don’t think so!! I love Chyna, and I will shout it from the roof tops! Avoiding Intimacy highlights her strengths, but doesn't leave out her weaknesses. Even though Chyna is flawed, she comes out on top! Not only does she come out on top, she does so effortlessly, Okay, maybe it was a struggle, but she does the right thing, and she continues to impress me! I doubt anyone else would have her strength. That is why she continues to be one of my fav’s in this wonderfully dramatic series! Marco Okay I’m not exactly sure why I love him so much, because he’s an A**! He has done some awful things, and will stop at nothing to ensure all debts are paid. I want him to be more. I know he is broken, and I want to fix him! I want to know more about him, and how deep his love runs. I want to see more of him, and I want to know what makes him tick, and do the things he does. I hope one day he gets the opportunity to redeem himself. I can see him doing great things. He is sexy, and I may be stupid for saying this, but I love him, and he is definitely one of my fav’s. My Rating 4.5 Milan, Photo camera, Bright star, A-hole brothers, Sweaty basketball game filled stars! I highly, highly recommend this book for a great drama-filled afternoon!! I love all of these great characters and hope you do too. Go on!! Go read it!!

Wow I really enjoyed Chyna's story! Chyna's life is far from easy and we see her vulnerability and how she avoids getting attached- she guards her heart to avoid getting hurt. I have too mention this story is full of hotties: Adam (so sweet and caring!), John (sexy, tattooed sharp dressing hunk!) and Marco (oh this Italian designer hunk who likes some kink!!). We get so see what actually happened with Chyna and Adam's brother John! There was tons of sexual tension between them and the situation escalated!! I liked the contrast between the men in her life- how they were all so different, but the each had something she wanted. The scenes between Marco and Chyna oh my- so steamy they don't disappoint! Chyna's time in Milan was eye opening and everything brought her to where she needed to be and most importantly who she needed to be with! Another great story from K.A. Linde!!

I've liked Chyna since the beginning on the series. It was cool to see things from her POV. We read on how she deals with her job and the hot men in her life.
