4 “Take me to Aruba” StarsARC provided by the authorThank you!!Looking for a fun, sexy, refreshing read with a sassy Latina main character and a swoony Hollywood love interest? Then you got it. Even if you weren’t looking for exactly that, you still want to read Acting on Impulse. Trust me.I read my first Mia Sosa book last year, and I truly enjoyed how she wrote what I called “realistic romances”. For me, those are stories you can see yourself or someone you know living. Instead of th [...]
My brain is too mushy to write a review so I’m just going to say this book is equally lovely and thrilling. I laughed so much, there are butterflies in my stomach.
Apparently, if you want me to read a new-to-me author all you have to say is, “It’s a slow burn, ” and I am on it! That’s what happened to me with Acting on Impulse after seeing it mentioned in a friend's Facebook post. My interest was piqued by the prospect of a slow-burning romance as well as the blurb, but the first paragraph is what pulled me in: “I’m standing in the middle of an airplane aisle…Someday I’m going to marry the woman sitting in 12D.” Of course, I had to read t [...]
I feel like a terrible blogger because I read Acting on Impulse at the end of my summer break, but never reviewed it. I was writing a list of book recs for Nereyda when I realized it! Oof! Acting on Impulse was such a fabulous book! It had everything that I enjoy in a good romance – it was honestly a pure joy to read this book, and I’ll certainly be re-reading it when I’m in a book funk. I’m not usually one for celebrity romances, because I feel like a lot of the drama in the book comes [...]
Funny, swoony, and PUERTO RICAN HEROINE, Y'ALL.
Acting on Impulse is a hilarious RomCom with enough emotional feels to leave you breathless with wantingMORE! Mia Sosa's fabulous mix of flirty and funny is what every reader dreams about! This author is a must for any romance lover.
In my quest to read more new to me authors this year, with an emphasis on diverse/own voices, I found a real winner in Mia Sosa’s Acting on Impulse, the first story in her Love on Cue series. I usually stay clear of the ‘rich Hollywood movie star falls for ordinary citizen’ type of story but the synopsis for this one makes it clear that the heroine isn’t going be swayed by stardom. From the meet-cute (which doesn’t end well for the hero) to the finale it’s a delight all the way throu [...]
4.5 starsE-ARC is received thanks to the publisher via Edelweiss.Also on Romances Ever After.I had so much fun reading this book! The story is fast paced, and yet the romance build-up is slow and steady. Tori and Carter both had my heart from the start. I love them as individual characters and together as a couple. They were so right for each other! There was so much chemistry between them that ending up together was inevitable. I love how easy their friendship, and then relationship, was. I als [...]
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.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 [...]
This book took me a bit to get into, but I'm glad I stuck with it, because it was unexpectedly funny and really cute!I'm not into insta-love/lust and this book opens with the hero, Carter, musing that he's found his 'future wife' standing in the aisle of an airplane. Once I got more into the book, I realized how tongue-in-cheek this was because Carter is rather irreverent (even though he is genuinely smitten with her). Tori comes off as a bit standoffish when Carter first tries to get to know he [...]
3.5 starsActing on Impulse was a really fun light romance with compelling characters.What I liked:Both Tori and Carter are no nonsense - good people that I would love to have as friends. Of course, they have their hangups but don't we all?I loved how Tori is totally in charge of her own life and safety while on her trip alone to Aruba but still leaves her heart open to helping others. Carter is an actor & self described drama king, afraid of being used but isn't your typical bad boy/damaged [...]
*I received an ARC from Edelweiss for an honest review*This is my first Mia Sosa book and wow!! It won't be my last that's for damn sure (i'm already eagerly awaiting book 2 in this series) The character's voices drew me in immediatelyyyy. With the alternating first person POVs we got a great sense of who these Tori and Carter are, their personalities, their thinking processes. It made for some hilarious moments with their inner thoughts. The characters were great, the family and friend dynamics [...]
Mia Sosa’s dedication mentions her ‘favorite spot in Romancelandia, where happily-ever-afters are guaranteed, love is love, and only cakes are moist”. And every moment of this story (except it didn’t come with cake) were exactly as hoped for. Adorable and oh so sweet, the story moved from moments of angst caused by trust issues through absolutely darling moments of soul-bearing, heartfelt and completely engaging. Carter is an actor, successful in sitcom rom-coms, but wanting to have some [...]
3.5 Impulsive Stars. What a cute, light, snarky, slightly steamy rom com!!! I've got several of Mia Sosa's books downloaded on my Nook, but this is the first one I've read. It sucks you in on page one. I mean how can you not keep reading when you get lines like, "I'm standing in the middle of the airplane aisleSomeday I'm going to marry the woman sitting in 12D." Carter is an up-and-coming Hollywood heartthrob looking to get off the B-list and onto the A-list by playing a serious role instead of [...]
I have been seeing this book being talking about on Twitter for months and I was really looking forward to reading it and being able to review it. I went in with high expectations. For the most part, my expectations were met but I did have a few issues.The first quote I mentioned above is also the first sentence of the book. I was immediately drawn in and wanted to know how exactly the hero, Carter, would make his very bold statement come true. Carter is an actor of moderate fame status. He is t [...]
~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~This is the first in a new series - and I loved it! It is light, fun, sexy and satisfying. Told from the POV of both leads, we get a really entertaining insight into how they feel, and how they react to each other. There is not however too much inner voice - which made me happy! The backgrounds, family dynamics and also expected futures of both Carter and Tori are laid bare to us in an organic way. Tori's sense of humour [...]
Acting on Impulse is book 1 in the Love on Cue series. This is my first Mia Sosa novel and won't be my last. I thought she did a wonderful job and I have to say I loved that this book is a diverse contemporary romance. I'm always wanting more diverse reads and this one was a great fit. Toss in the celebrity love interest and you have my full attention.Tori Alvarez is a fitness trainer that is heading to Aruba after an embarrassing break up. Her ex decided during an interview to say he wasn't dat [...]
You guys, I FLOVED Acting on Impulse. I was in the middle of a total book funk-nothing was pulling me out of it until I pick up this book to read. And I was sucked in from the first page.I loved the dynamic between Tori and Carter. They both are a bit jaded by publicity. Both want to have a private life. But privacy is hard to come by when you're a celebrity, like Carter. Which is why he's thrilled when Tori doesn't recognize him on the way to Aruba. And things are all well and good until the pe [...]
Acting On Impulse (Love On Cue) by Mia Sosa Mia Sosa is a ray of sunshine. She uses her quick wit and irresistible talent to brighten up the world of romance. Acting On Impulse is destined to be a classic. Where else can a smidge of fantasy lead to a dose of reality? Tori has a history of falling for the wrong guys. Her heart is all in, but reality doesn't measure up to the fairy tale in her head. In need of a little rest and relaxation after a draining split, she takes a vacation. [...]
This was a couldn't-put-down book for me. Tori is strong and sassy; Carter is hunky and soft-hearted. Together they bring out the best in and challenge each other. Tori's Puerto Rican heritage is beautifully woven into the story. Mia Sosa has done a fabulous job creating wonderful characters with a heartfelt story you can't help but root for. It's a definite recommend!
Laugh-out-loud romance! Both Tori and Carson are hiding out in Aruba- Tori from her back-stabbing boyfriend and Carson from his crazy Hollywood fans. They both want peace and quiet from their hectic lives but get fireworks instead. Really cute story but the ending was a little rushed!
3.5This was cute. And funny at times. The plot and conflict wasn’t that strong, but I didn’t care much since it’s meant to be a lighthearted read. I really liked the MC Tori. She was a total feminist badass.
I really enjoyed this and will definitely check out the author in the future. A B+ for me.
Acting on Impulse (Love on Cue, #1) by Mia Sosa4 starsM/F RomanceI was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.Tori and Carter meet while on vacation. Tori is just trying to get away from her now ex-boyfriend and Carter just needs some good R & R. Tori is an outgoing, well rounded fitness trainer. She is a good character - she's self assured, but also not willing to just jump back in to a relationship. When Carter is less than forthright about his career and identity, she is thr [...]
A fun book, with characters who were likable, and a storyline that kept me turning the pages. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author!
Fun story. Looking forward to more. Always appreciate having POC as main characters
>>>>> My Synopsis (Review Follows): <<<<<Tori was just dumped by her boyfriend--not in person, not by phone, and not by text messaging, but very publicly during an interview on a talk radio show. When asked if there was anyone special in his life he'd responded, "No", and then announced he was taking a "breather" from the dating scene. Angry, upset, and desperate to get away, she books a last minute trip to Aruba giving herself some time to relax. recover, and refle [...]
