A Hollywood stuntman and a fitness trainer share an exciting and energetic one-night stand but are unprepared for the gymnastic ability of their hearts.
When Eva Montgomery gets stranded at an airport, Anthony Castillo, her best friend Tori’s cousin, offers to drive her to a nearby hotel. Eva has sworn off dating because of a string of bad relationships involving manipulative men, while Anthony is emotionally reserved and has no interest in romantic relationships—he gets all the thrills he needs by training aspiring stuntmen. A heated exchange of barbs and sexual innuendo between the unlikely couple culminates in a hot one-night stand, and the two go back to their separate lives, secure in the knowledge that their paths are unlikely to intersect too often. But when Eva moves from Philadelphia to Los Angeles to work in Tori’s gym, Every Body, she has to share work space with Anthony, who teaches self-defense classes at the studio. Their lives become further entangled when Eva decides to turn to stunt work to supplement her income; she needs all the training Anthony can give her. Despite their swiftness and athleticism, the two get tripped up by their sexual chemistry and mutual attraction. The third and final installment in the Love on Cue series is charming and funny but lacks emotional heft. Although Eva’s sexual frankness is refreshing, Anthony’s past trauma gets a perfunctory treatment that makes the couple’s struggles seem superficial. But Sosa rescues the romance from limpness by beefing it up with references to Puerto Rican cuisine, contemporary politics, and popular culture.
An engaging romance that begins by packing a loud and sizzling punch but ends with a whimper.
