Synopsis: 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?

ARC Book Review
Acting on Impulse is the first book in author Mia Sosa’s Love on Cue series with Avon Impulse and believe me when I tell you, this book sets a high bar for the rest of the stories and characters in this series. Not only are the lead characters fully fleshed out and deliciously diverse, but their individual personalities are entertaining, compelling, and intriguing to read about on the page.
Written in first person with a dual point of view, Acting on Impulse takes readers on an exciting journey of fun and romance with two strong lead characters who immediately gain the attention of readers and pull them into their story. Sosa deftly intermingles humor, romance, passion, and vacation secrets to create a unique island romance that feels fresh, fun, and solid.
Carter Stone is a Hollywood heartthrob in need of some rest and relaxation while he recuperates from his latest role, one that required a taxing physical transformation. Tori Alvarez is a personal trainer needing a life recharge after a bad breakup left her with an even worse taste in her mouth. When the two meet on the plane headed for Aruba, they are both intrigued by the other but also, understandably, wary. But their wariness doesn’t prevent them from getting to know one another or from having some fun together in Aruba.
Carter and Tori have amazing chemistry together. Sosa did well pairing the two and giving them an island vacation to play inside because their diversity, strength, and uniqueness of personality make them both vastly memorable characters who live and breathe on the page.
If you are a contemporary romance fan and are looking for a well-written, compelling new read, be sure to check out Acting On Impulse by Mia Sosa. It’s a winner, and it definitely deserves a place on any new or longtime romance fans keeper shelf.
