This is the first book I have read from Thea Dawson and I can say that I wasn't disappointed. Acting on Impulse is a sweet romance and just the kind of book you might need to have while cozying up with your favorite beverage on a warm night. The angst is minimal, the sweet factor on point, and the swoon worthiness just the right side of steamy for this gentle romance read. There's a bit of a 'Hallmark' special feel to it that we all need every now and again especially when we've had a hard day.
I loved that this isn't a typical romance, Thea's characters come to you full of history, prior relationships, children, stressful jobs, mortgages...baggage, but the everyday you and I kind of baggage (well except counting that our hero is a bit of a bad boy Hollywood star. His name is Chris and you might find a connection between his rise to stardom and another famous Chris that I kind of sort of have a super huge crush on so you know I was all about out hero.
I loved that Chris, our hero, really grows up in this story. We meet him when he is quite young, just starting out his college career and shall we say, not particularly in control of his emotions, and finds him self falling head over heels in lust/love with his community theater co-star, who happens to be married and has a young child. At first I thought I was really going to be put out by this guy who clearly didn't care about the life status of his crush, but...well, as you will see in the book, he definitely matures, discovers who he is, and along the way makes amends for his past while creating the future he always wanted.
My favorite thing about our heroine was her drive. She found herself in a really bad place in life and instead of letting it take her down a bitter road she held her head high and 'soldiered' on. I liked that even though she wanted to stick it to the man who hurt her and in some ways does it just a little, she never lets the ugliness take her too far and she recognizes that she has to let go of her past so she can have a happy future for herself and her daughter. I am one of those readers that always loves when karma catches up to the antagonist in a story, but I have to say I was so proud of this heroine for taking that high road and I don't feel totally disappointed that a little comeuppance didn't come the way of the 'other person'.
Acting on Impulse is the second book in the Silverweed Falls series but I can honestly tell you that you won't be missing anything if you haven't read the first. I truly didn't even know that it was a second until I went looking to see who's book would be coming next. I think that if you read the first one Desire by Design before moving on to Acting on Impulse there might be some small nuances that you will pick up on but if you haven't trust me when I say it won't change anything about how you read this book, it is a true standalone with in a series. After meeting on the characters in Acting on Impulse I think Thea Dawson has quite a series line-up ahead for us. I can pick out at least 5 characters that I would love stories on so here is hoping!
A delightful second chance story that brought old friends and unrequited lovers back into each other’s lives.
Chris fell hard for Joy, but it was a case of the right person at the wrong time as she was a married woman with a child but is it too late to go back? Has his stardom blown everything out of proportion…including his ego?
Or is it a case of rekindling the possibility that this still might be the real McCoy?
Chris knew then just as he knows now that there is something special between the two of them, but will it come to fruition or is it a sad end to what could be a fairy-tale romance?
A great read with two superb main characters and a multitude of secondary characters who could have easily stolen the limelight without such a firm hand at the helm…to the author… bravo!
