Dear Reader, this letter is to inform you of Cupid’s curse, which will fall upon you if you don’t pass this email on to three friends within three hours.
Tilly Morrow didn’t believe in the curse and now she hasn’t had a second date in three years…because all her first dates end in disaster. In fact, she just accidentally punched a guy in the face, leaving her without a date for Valentine’s Day!
Bryant Murphy isn’t sure if the curse is real or not, but if dating Tilly means occasionally getting assaulted with a chocolate shake or nearly electrocuted, it’s worth the risk. Armed with more lucky charms than a bowl of cereal, Bryant will have to battle flying swords, Russian mail-order brides, and shrimp linguini if he’s going to win the girl.
At some point or another in all our inboxes we’ve had one of those annoying, weird and zany chain letters the promise true love, or luck for the rest of our lives if we pass it on to this many friends who pass it on to that many friends and so on and so on. We’ve all hit that delete button and not thought much of it.. until Tilly did just that.
Since that fateful day Tilly has had nothing but bad luck – and bad luck isn’t even the right word – it’s the worst possible luck ever! Disaster date after disaster date leaves Tilly believing she’ll never ever find someone she’ll have a second date with or break the curse.
Tilly meets Bryant after running into the door of his embroidery shop and spilling her milkshake all over herself and his door. This chance meeting sets them on a course of many disasters, lots of laughs and eventually a happily ever after. Bryant is willing to try anything to help break the curse and it’s had me giggling with all his suggestions on how to lift the dreaded Cupids Curse!
Would I recommend this book? Oh yes, it was probably one of the most fun reads I’ve had in a while. I laughed and sighed as Bryant tried to win over Tilly. The author created such a wonderful story line and had me hooked in such a short period of time. I wish the story had been longer! Would I read more by this author? Yes!
