"Mia Sosa delivers wish fulfillment with off-the-charts sparks.” —Entertainment Weekly
Relationships are a thing of the past for Eva Montgomery. Her current motto? You can’t spell “manipulative” without man. But Eva has needs, and a one-night-stand at her best friend’s wedding is the perfect way to kick off her new approach to singledom. Then a job opportunity puts her in the same city with the guy she can’t forget . . .
Anthony Castillo is a perpetual bachelor—no strings, just flings—a status he maintains by being honest about his intentions and never looking back. So why is he still thinking about the firecracker of a woman who rocked his world at his cousin’s wedding? It’s a question he refuses to answer, until she comes crashing back into his life, taking his emotional walls down with her.
When her father doubts her ability to make it in LA, Eva vows to go big and prove him wrong. With her athletic background, she’s an ideal candidate for stunt work. But first she’ll need training, and the instructor is none other than her former hookup, Anthony Castillo. Except he’s not as cocky as she remembers and he’s definitely still sexy as sin. The only problem is . . . Anthony doesn’t want her anywhere near his stunt school—or his heart.
"Snappy writing imbued with a deliciously acerbic sense of humor . . . the new go-to author for fans of sassy and sexy contemporary romances.” —Booklist

I love a romance that's about more than the relationship between the two leads, and Crashing into Her completely delivers. Both Eva and Anthony go through so much soul searching and growing out of old fears (on Anthony's part) and into themselves (on Eva's), it's just really wonderful. Eva is awesome, and I totally want to be her friend (and take her fitness classes!) Her relationship with Tori is great, and I'd definitely want to join Every Body if, y'know, it were a real place and in my neighborhood, haha. I adore strong, supportive, and empowering female friendships in romances! Anthony is kind of swoony. He's got his emotional hang-ups and baggage, but who doesn't? Also his relationship with his dad is adorable - though Luis (Anthony's father) does totally steal the show in basically every scene he's in, haha. He's basically the best character in the entire book, which doesn't mean the other characters don't totally rock, Luis is just THAT next-level adorable. But what I really, really liked about this book? Both Eva and Anthony have their hang-ups and issues, and yet they repeatedly have open and honest dialogue with each other and try, again and again, to reach out. Especially Anthony, the self-proclaimed lifelong bachelor. “Last night was incredible, but I think you wanted to keep it impersonal, and only after experiencing impersonal did I realize it doesn’t fit the way I feel about you.” There's a lot of great two-way communication and great modelling for healthy relationship building in this book (and also some next-level moping, are-we-broken-up-forever?-drama, because hello, drama). It's just really awesome to see the development of Anthony and Eva's relationship down in a mostly realistic (okay, maybe stunt training isn't quite super realistic for most people) and mostly healthy way. There's not a lot of toxic BS here (though Eva has toxic men in her past and is quick to read toxicity into a situation, which causes some of the aforementioned drama), and it's just very refreshing. Crashing into Her is the third book in the Love on Cue series. It can be read as a stand alone, but there are some minor spoilers for the first book in the series, Love on Cue, so consider yourself warned about that. The couples from both prior books in the series also feature in this book as side characters a couple of times.
What a way to finish off the series! Eva and Anthony's story did not disappoint. Eva's snarky inner monologue--not to mention the not-so-inner dialogue between the two of them--was often snort-out-loud funny. Their reasons for not believing in love were realistic--even when you didn't agree with them, you understood why they thought that way--and the path each took to finally come to their senses was 100% believable. I liked that they both had a hand in the relationship black moment, and that they both were able to admit they were wrong and move forward. Mutual HEA for the win! And the eye candy reading this put in my brain can't be discounted either...where can I get my own stunt man hottie? ;) Crashing into Her is the third in the series; for those who have read the others, you'll love seeing the heroes and heroines from the first two books pop in here (Tori a bit more than Ashley, since she's Eva's BFF and coworker) but you don't have to have read the other books to enjoy this one--it should work just fine as a standalone. But OMG will it have you craving Puerto Rican food--don't read while hungry! Rating: 4 stars / A- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
I had never read anything from this author, but I really liked the premise, so I jumped on the chance when I got the invite. I really liked Eva and Anthony. She’s so sassy and strong and I love that she always spoke her mind. Anthony is maybe a little stubborn, but so good and secretly a marshmallow. Together they had some excellent banter. The chemistry was decent, but did have a lot of telling instead of showing. I also really liked Tori and Anthony’s dad and they easily stole whatever scene they were in. Plot wise, it was okay. There’s a lot of push and pull and while I get having to build up to a relationship, I could have done without the repetition. I did love the grand gesture and the epilogue was fantastic. Overall, it was the characters that kept me reading. I am a little curious about Tori’s story and just might go back to read it. **huge thanks to Avon Impulse for providing the arc free of charge**
Mia Sosa makes my heart happy. Her stories deal with serious topics in a light hearted way. Her characters are a reminder that with a open heart, an empathetic ear and a little bit of laughter, change is possible. Crashing into Her makes for a tempting read. Eva knows her mind follows her heart and finds herself in deep trouble. Tony is the spark to her match and they're both on the cusp of getting burned. A flame-worthy, laugh out loud, irresistible read.
