As I said yesterday, today is a very special day! I bring you my tour stop for ACTING ON IMPULSE, one of my favorite romances this year. I want everyone to read this one because one. it's super fun and the romance is epic, but also because we all need to support Latinx authors and more so than ever because it's Hispanic Heritage Month! One-click!

Title: Acting on Impulse
Series: Love on Cue
Author: Mia Sosa
Publisher: Avon Impulse
Release date: September 19, 2017


After a very public breakup with a media-hungry politician, fitness trainer Tori Alvarez escapes to Aruba for rest, relaxation, and copious amounts of sex on the beach—the cocktail, that is. She vows to keep her vacation a man-free zone but when a cute guy is seated next to her on the plane, Tori can’t resist a little harmless flirting. 

Hollywood heartthrob Carter Stone underwent a dramatic physical transformation for his latest role and it’s clear his stunning seat mate doesn’t recognize the man beneath the shaggy beard and extra lean frame. Now Carter needs help rebuilding his buff physique and Tori is perfect for the job. It doesn’t hurt that she makes his pulse pound in more ways than one. 

Sparks are flying, until a pesky paparazzo reveals Carter’s identity. Tori is hurt and pissed. She wants nothing to do with another man in the limelight, but she’s still got to whip him into shape. Can Carter convince Tori he’s worth the threat to her privacy that comes with dating a famous actor, or will Tori chisel him down to nothing before he even gets the chance? 

Grab the popcorn…

Acting on Impulse was the perfect mix of romance and lovable characters with a side of fabulous dialogue. Mia Sosa is such an amazing writer that she made me fall in love with Tori and Carter from the very first paragraph. When I first found out Mia was going to release this new series with Avon, I was OVER. THE. MOON. I am so happy Avon is publishing more and more authors of color and their stories need to be told!

What I love most about Tori and Carter's relationship and about this book is that they have such a gooood relationship, like such a good dynamic between them. They get along so well and are sassy together and they have the same humor that Tori even think it's perfect. My heart swoons so hard for these two. Even though they are flawed characters, they actually made a good perfect. 

Acting on Impulse should be in every romance list out there, should be in every romance lover TBR. It is a book that definitely feels so refreshing and new and so light and soft at the same time. It has the summer-y vibe if you are still missing summer because fall is upon us. It has a nice island getaway where two very different people meet and have a very good stay. One is a celebrity trying not to get noticed by the paps and the other is a fitness trainer who just got brokenhearted by a past relationship. Both are looking for that something /else/. I'm so pleased to say that this book is an adventure that will leave you wanting for more and craving this new world Mia Sosa created.

Thank you Edelweiss and Avon Impulse for the review copy in exchange for my honest opinion. All my thoughts are my own.
