More about ACTING ON IMPULSE:
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?
- “You’re welcome, Carter. But don’t thank me too soon. I’m your trainer now, and I’m going to work you hard.”
In a movie, this would be the point when my character would turn his head and stare into the camera with his eyes wide. Because seriously? She’s going to work me hard?
- My job entails getting Carter physically conditioned for his next film. So as I see it, I can torture him at my discretion and still help him reach his objectives. Why should I be the only one suffering?
Yes, yes, that’s it. He’ll pay for making me want him—in sweat and tears.
