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…
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.
About the Author: Lila enjoys writing, as it gives her a flexible schedule to spend time with her kids and a wonderful excuse to avoid them. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, who strips out of his well-fitted suits nightly.
