One minute, Katrina King's enjoying an innocent conversation with a random guy at a coffee shop; the next, a stranger has live-tweeted the entire encounter with a romantic meet-cute spin and #CafeBae has the world swooning. Going viral isn't easy for anyone, but Katrina has painstakingly built a private world for herself, far from her traumatic past. Besides, everyone has it all wrong...that #CafeBae bro? He isn't the man she's hungry for. With the internet on the hunt for the identity of #CuteCafeGirl, Jas Singh, bodyguard and possessor of the most beautiful eyebrows Katrina's ever seen, offers his family's farm as a refuge. Alone with her unrequited crush feels like a recipe for hopeless longing, but Katrina craves the escape. She's resigned to being just friends with Jas--until they share a single electrifying kiss. Now she can't help but wonder if her crush may not be so unrequited after all...

This was a really sweet contemporary romance. For me personally, it was a little slow to kick off, but I'm glad I stuck with it. This bodyguard romance was fun to see the push and pull between Katrina and Jas. Doodle was definitely one of my favorite characters. This is the first Alisha Rai book I've read, but I'm certain I'll be reading more. After meeting Rhianna in this book, I want to check out her story in The Right Swipe.

4 Stars - I recommend if you enjoy contemporary romance.

Katrina King, is a shy ex-model dealing with panic, living in seclusion. When she unexpectedly meets a man at a coffee shop, and bystanders take it upon themselves to create a fake relationship for them, she'll worry about her anonymity and what this means for her life. The man that she really wants is her long-time bodyguard Jas Singh. He's never made any interest in her known, but she wishes he would. When things get out of control with the viral tweet about her meet cute, Jas will drive her to his family farm to give her the seclusion she needs.

I love a good bodyguard romance. Especially a grumpy sort of silent body guard in a romance. I loved Jas and his calm desire to take care of Katrina. I love that he pined for her for so long. I loved Katrina and her sunny outlook and desire to be happy and care for others. The first book in this series was a little too "modern" (modern love series, I know...) for my personal tastes, but this one was just right. I loved the plot, and how they got away to his family's cabin together. As someone who personally deals with anxiety and panic attacks, I thought that Rai's representation of that in Katrina's character was really accurate and sensitively done. I hope that it helps get some awareness out there to readers. It actually choked me up a few times, because I've been there, and was lucky to have someone by my side to help me too. I really enjoyed all of the animals, and also Jas's family. I thought that they were all so colorful and funny. I loved the history of his family and the diversity in that area of California. The "I Love You" stole my heart. Swoon, this was such a cute book. Can't wait, as always, for more of Rai's books!
