How can rivals and opposites seem like they’re meant to be?

Catalina Diaz Solis needs just a few things to achieve her dream: her student visa, a full-time job, and to get Gabriel Cabrera out of her head. Since leaving Venezuela after her brother was killed in a political protest, Cata has been working to finish her Engineering degree, and now she’s in line for a full-time job that will allow her to stay in the United States. A major wrinkle in her plans is Gabe, the campus babe. He’s always in Cata’s way, competing for top grades and poised to take the job at their internship.

Gabe seems to have it all; he succeeds without trying and is extremely good-looking. It makes hard-working Cata endlessly frustrated. But when Gabe needs a plus-one for his brother’s wedding, he strikes a deal: Cata will be his fake date, and he’ll step out of the running for the job she desperately needs. As they attend events together, Cata discovers there’s more to her nemesis than she ever imagined. It’s all fun and games until Cata’s visa renewal is rejected, and Gabe complicates things with a new proposal that might either solve all her problems or destroy her dreams. Cata will have to put everything on the line to follow her heart.

Marianna Leal is a Venezuelan writer of contemporary romance fiction. She is determined to represent her gente and writes about strong and vulnerable girls who make their way in a world that tells them they don't belong or are not enough, and boys who are not afraid to show emotion and grow from it.

She currently resides in Florida, after a couple of years in the US Midwest... which were preceded by a few years in Scandinavia. Fortunately for her, she enjoys traveling and learning about other cultures, and this has been a wonderful adventure she sometimes worries has been a dream all along.

In her spare time she is a full time employee for an engineering company that does care about the planet. Even though she's an awkward turtle with the YOLO energy of a bull in a china shop, she has deep feelings about the environment and social issues. You can also count on her terrible sense of humor and colorful language.
