In this love-at-first-sight romance, party-girl Allison Kelly has it all – great friends, a flourishing business, and an active sex life, with no time for a relationship. Sure, she suffers the occasional twinge of loneliness, but if her latest boy-toy is unavailable, there’s always the next in line at her friend’s dating service, Cupid’s Cavalry.
For six years, ex-soldier Benjamin Turner has traveled the world trying to outrun the loneliness eating away at his heart. Now he’s ready to give love another chance, if only he can find the right woman. A serious, dedicated woman to stand by his side and share his vision for the future.
He’s looking for stability. She wants a good time. Will Cupid’s arrow find its mark this Valentine’s Day or will their pairing be Cupid’s biggest mistake?
I wasn’t really going to give this book a chance after reading the first few pages, but I’m glad I decided to continue on, because it turned out to be a pretty good quick read. In the very beginning I was brushed the wrong way with Allison’s first portrayal in the novel and found myself rolling my eyes at her “poor me” spirit because she was dateless. I had the same first impression that Ben had and wanted to turn the other way. Fortunately both Ben and I discovered that there’s more that meets the eye with Allison and that we shouldn’t have judged a book by it’s cover.
I was kind of sad that this was short, I mean really short. The author dropped a lot of information that easily could had developed the story a whole lot more and made it longer. Maybe she’ll write more about the other characters in the book, I feel she dropped too much background information to just stoplight the book where she did.
My Rating: 3.5/5
