Review - Crashing into Her

Crashing into Her - Love on Cue #3
by Mia Sosa

What they say: 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.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I enjoyed the "active" moments in the book - Eva's action woman antics definitely made me feel lazy. The book has a real coming of age element, although I wasn't entirely sure it fit with the age range, but I did enjoy it!

Eva is lost. She's always been beholden to somebody, whether it be to her dad or her unfortunate ex's. In a bid for freedom, she moves across the country to California and gets a fun job as an exercise class instructor with her friends company. As an action junkie, she's good at all kinds of things including martial arts, dancing and swimming. When the opportunity to train as a stunt performer comes around, she's all over it, much to her father's dismay. Added bonus = she gets to work with the handsome but illusive player and former hookup, Anthony. 

Anthony doesn't do relationships. He's all about the no strings kinda fun, but finds something intriguing about his cousin's bestie, Eva. 

I enjoyed the back and forth *ahem* arguing, and their antics were certainly entertaining. I enjoyed seeing them struggle to be friends, although there were times I just didn't quite 'feel' them together. I also would have liked a more developed ending, but I seem to be saying this a lot these days.

The friendships and family units were really fun. I loved Anthony's dad. Another highlight was reading all the cultural references. I'd love to go to a Puerto Rican food and dance festival one day - yum!
