Crashing into Her by Mia Sosa

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.

This is the third book in the series – and although it relates to a new romance, the characters do carry over from the previous books, so reading them in order will definitely give you a richer experience. That said, this is a well-rounded and fun story in its own right.

Told from the point of view of both leads, we get a deep insight into why they have such negative views on romance. Both having suffered from parents who split, and the split being due to an inequality in the depth of love of one spouse... unusually, (I think) in both cases resulting in the mother choosing to move away alone. It takes a good while for each of them to see this similarity, but thankfully the chemistry between them has cemented a friendship at least by then already.

I enjoyed the girls all catching up and being supportive, and it was fun to see earlier plans turn into reality, and the dance/exercise studio is really flourishing. Eva definitely gets the chance to find her feet away from her somewhat domineering father, and this is no small part due to her good friends being there for her. She is undoubtedly a strong character, and no doubt Anthony grows to recognise that the relationship that they are starting is on a more even keel than his parents’. But is it really enough?

A good, satisfying romantic read, which also gives an interesting insight into the behind the scenes life of a stunt double.

Eva is trying to figure out what she wants in life. While she loves what she does, she also knows that she might be made for more. When she picks up and heads to LA, she knows that her father is not super excited about her choice. What she doesn't expect is his blatant attempts to get her to move home. He manipulates her like nobody else can. But Eva is determined to stick it out and make it work. She loves her job and when another opportunity presents itself, she can't help but be excited about that one too.

Anthony is not a relationship type of guy. Sure, he likes to hookup, but he never plans on being in a relationship because he's seen the damage they can cause. Watching his dad pine over a woman who didn't love him enough has made Anthony extremely wary of commitment. But he knows that Eva will be hard to resist. Especially after he knows what she sounds like in bed. After their hookup, Anthony thought he'd be safe in LA. But with Eva moving to be closer to her best friend, Anthony knows he is in trouble.

Eva and Anthony's relationship is a slow burn. They try to be friends, try to hang out with their other friends, but their chemistry is just too much for them to handle. I will admit that I found myself bored at times, with their dialogue and relationship. It seemed like a lot of the same situations over and over again. I wanted to really love this book, and while I did enjoy their banter back and forth, this story just kind of dragged for me. Overall, it was developed well, the characters were well planned, but the story just didn't come together for me.
