Soledad Flores has her eyes closed as her feet sink deeper into the sand. The only place she feels at peace and what she needs right now since she has just been let go from her morning job as a housekeeper. She makes good tips as a waitress but it's not enough to get into college with having to also pay for half of her living expenses. 

Her dream is to one day own her own fashion house and she is late getting to her idol's fashion show. Lombardo Designs holds an annual charity fashion show supporting the Children of Little Havana Group Home. A place where she not only grew up, but met her best friends. She hopes that Savannah isn't too upset she is late but is so looking forward to her moving in with her and Natalia since she has just turned 18.

She arrives just as the lights start to dim and is surprised when she is grabbed and asked to fill in for a model who didn't show. She has never modeled a day in her life and is terrified she will fall flat on her face.

Isaac Lombardo snuck in late for the charity fashion show knowing that his mother would be upset he wasn't there to give the opening speech. He had been on the beach when he saw the most beautiful girl who had turned him down flat when he offered to give her a ride. 

When his best friend Luke bursts out laughing he looks up in shock. The woman he had just bet his friends that he could get her in his bed was walking down the runway. And totally off limits. His father's strict rules were no dating anyone who worked at Lombardo Designs.

I loved this book! It is very well written and the characters are fully developed and relatable. Soledad grew up in a group home after the death of her mother. Isaac was the adopted son of Manny Lombardo and was used to getting what he wanted. And he wanted Soledad.

This book is action-packed from cover to cover. This book is steamy hot and packed full of danger and intrigue and some massive twists. This book will have you laughing and crying... especially when Soledad finds out that her life was always a lie and someone she trusted had kept the most important thing a secret.

I highly enjoyed this book and am hoping that Luke and Andres get to share their story.
