Review: Cupids Anonymous by Lila Monroe

☆☆➹⁀☆ 4 stars ☆➹⁀☆☆

What It’s About:
I’m a professional Cyrano – minus the honking great nose. Need a love note, raunchy
sext, or apology letter so epic that your other half will forget you hesitated a beat too long when you asked, ‘does this make me look fat?’? I’ve got you covered. But when my most frequent client, the annoyingly charming (or is that charmingly annoying?) Dylan Griffin comes to me with an unconventional new job, I discover that three little words can add up to one BIG complication…
Because Dylan doesn’t want help seducing another swimsuit model (for once in his life). He wants my help winning over his high-school crush (aka, his one true love) -and he’s prepared to make it worth my while. Throw in a summer Catskills trip that’s equal parts ‘Dirty Dancing’ and dirty-talking, and this Cupid is soon out of her depth – and head over heels with the last man I expected. But can I find the right words when it comes to my own heart? Or will this happily ever end in disaster? 

My Thoughts:

Author Lila Monroe can be counted on to provide a lighthearted, entertaining escape in every book she publishes.  Cupid’s arrow hits the bull’s eye with the author’s latest novella, Cupids Anonymous.

Poppy’s business as a modern day Cyrano de Bergerac fulfills her romantic tendencies without having to risk the pain of heartbreak. It doesn’t, however, prevent the pain of dealing with a womanizer like Dylan Griffin, who happens to be her best customer.

Poppy and Dylan are great charters, both individually and together.  They’re realistic and relatable.  Their banter is fun, and as their relationship evolves from business to friendship to more, the chemistry explodes.  The plot is well paced, and the relationship development felt organic. In one of my favorite scenes, Poppy calls out Dylan on the real impetus for pursing his high school crush.  She proves her understanding of people in general and especially of her clients.

Cupids Anonymous is fun and funny with a dash of romance and a pinch of conflict.  A message of self-discovery and acceptance is very subtly embedded in the story.  I enjoyed both the primary and secondary characters from vapid Jasmine to misunderstood Dylan to ebullient Sarah.  This is an adorable start to a new series.
