I freaking adored this book. I couldn’t put it down! I actually got on the wrong train during my morning commute because I was so engrossed in finishing this fabulous contemporary romance.
Finally, a book that not only lightened my mood, but also added depth to a tough trope. Okay, well Mia Sosa actually plays with tropes in CRASHING INTO HER, and it totally works. This was part friends to lovers, part enemies to lovers (frenemies to lovers?), and part best friends brother… er… cousin. Whatever. Eva, our heroine, is making significant life changes. She picked up her whole life and moved from Philadelphia to Los Angeles, she took a financial risk, and she doesn’t have the support of her father. Moving means she is now in close contact with her best friend/employer’s cousin, Anthony, who she had a one night stand with months prior.
I think I ended up highlighting half this book with a massive smile on my face. I didn’t highlight passages so I could remember pivotal scenes or conversations, I noted the scenes and quotes that were SO relatable, funny, witty, or made me say “YES.” Something about the way Ms. Sosa writes her heroines just works for me. They’re all complex, multifaceted women with rich backstories. I felt like I knew Eva from page one and I liked her.
My favorite part of this book was the chemistry and open dialogue between Eva and Anthony. It is so refreshing to read about two characters who just genuinely click and did from the first. Even Anthony’s anti-relationship stance (something that usually makes me roll my eyes) actually made me sympathize with him. Plus I am a sucker for a hero who just can’t help but adore the heroine for everything that she is. Bonus, he really loves his dad and that made me feel all warm and fuzzy.
Overall, I could rave about this book all day. This might be my new “go-to” contemporary romance recommendation for people looking for a funny, sweet story with the perfect amount of steam. I am devastated to see this series come to an end, but I can’t wait to see the world Ms. Sosa creates next! I am all in!
