In Alisha Rai's second novel in her MODERN LOVE series, a live-tweet event goes viral for a camera-shy ex-model, shoving her into the spotlight - and into the arms of the bodyguard she'd been pining for.

OMG! Wouldn't it be adorable if he's her soulmate???
I don't see any wedding rings
Breaking: #CafeBae and #CuteCafeGirl went to the bathroom AT THE SAME TIME!!!

One minute, Katrina King's enjoying an innocent conversation with a hot guy at a coffee shop; the next, a stranger has live-tweeted the entire episode with a romantic meet-cute spin and #CafeBae is the new hashtag-du-jour. The problem? Katrina craves a low-profile life, and going viral threatens the peaceful world she's painstakingly built. Besides, #CafeBae isn't the man she's hungry for . . .

He's got a to die for.

With the internet on the hunt for the identity of #CuteCafeGirl, Jas Singh, bodyguard, friend and possessor of the most beautiful eyebrows Katrina's ever seen, comes to the rescue and whisks her away to his family's home. Alone in a remote setting with the object of her affections? It's a recipe for romance. But after a long dating dry spell, Katrina isn't sure she can trust her instincts when it comes to love - even if Jas' every look says he wants to be more than just her bodyguard . . .
