Summary from Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Snow-Soon Lee kicks ass--literally. She teaches at her family-owned martial arts gym, The Academy, and cares more about training to be the next Bruce Lee than hooking up. In fact, Snow's never even been kissed. But when Girls Night rolls around, Snow decides to prove to her friends (and herself) that she's not just some boring tomboy. Impulsively, she kisses a hot stranger and even manages to escape his two security guards.
One stolen kissâ¦
Ash Stryker's senior year sucks. His politician father pulled him out of Chariot High, separating him from his championship-winning soccer team. Now he's stuck at a prissy private school with no friends, no team and no chance of being scouted. On top of that, thanks to the death threats his dad's received, Ash has a security tail aka professional babysitters. When the mystery girl from the movies shows up at his school, rappelling from the rafters, Ash knows one thing: he won't let her get away again.
One interesting job propositionâ¦
After a seemingly random attack, Ash's mother surprises everyone. She hires Snow to be Ash's personal bodyguard until after the election. But can Snow's kick-ass skills hold up against the rising threats to Ash's family? More importantly, can Ash convince his ninja girl to screw ethics and kiss him again?
Opposites attract in this YA romance where a smooth talker meets his match in the tough girl who (literally) sweeps him off his feet. Moral of the story:
Sometimes even bad boys need a bodyguard.

I stood up suddenly, needing to doâ¦something. I knew what she was saying was total crap. I knew Nara was pure evil, and I didnât have to prove anything to her. But right then I needed to prove something to myself. I was a girl dammit, and I wasnât boring. I was a force.
Just like Bruce.
âSnow, whatâs up?â Min asked, but instead of answering I headed in the opposite direction. While the others had been taking stock of hoodie guy, Iâd been getting a read on his security. They were too far back to stop me. Part of me wanted to test themâto test meâand see if I could do this and still get away. I figured I had about a minute tops, but thatâs all Iâd need.
One last look over my shoulder told me all three girls were staring at me, mouths gaping, even Nara. Boring, sheâd said earlier. Iâd give her boring.
Taking a deep breath, I kept walking until I was almost even with hoodie guyâs seat, placed my hand on the chair back and swung my body overâright into his lap. Over his shoulder, I saw his security react. Too late.
He gasped, but I didnât have time to explain.
âSorry about this,â I whispered right before sealing my lips to his.
Iâd taken him by surpriseâthat much was clear from the way his body tensed beneath mine. But he wasnât trying to push me off. Iâd intended it to be quick. A single brush with danger, a nod to teen girl impulsiveness, but the way his mouth melted under mine was unexpected. I fisted my hands in his shirt, pulling him closer. My lips, my entire body, went up in flames, but I couldnât get close enough. It wasnât until his hands came around my back that I remembered myself.
Pulling away, I came face-to-face with the greenest eyes Iâd ever seen.
âIâm sorry,â I muttered again.
âIâm not,â he said. And then his guards grabbed me.
