Overview


Finding love should be easy, but wedding photographer Pheobe Ward knows better. When Cupid shows up on a crazy mission to help her —and save the world in the process—Phoebe realizes love might be even more complicated than she thought. Even with Cupid showing her Mr. Right , she can’t stop thinking about his best friend, Mr. Wrong.

Cal Crawford has never had time for love, but now he’s falling for Phoebe. Which means it’s got to be just plain wrong to set her up with his best friend, right? But even though seeing Phoebe with someone else will break his heart, he can’t walk away from her.

Phoebe can’t afford to choose the wrong guy with the fate of the world at stake. But maybe Cupid has it wrong. Maybe she has to rely just a little bit on Cupid, and a whole lot more on her heart.

    3.5 Stars
    Phoebe Ward has almost given up on finding love, now finding herself at her ex-fiance's wedding as the photographer.  Of course she couldn't say no,  because she is really good at what she does and she is happy for him, yet that pang of jealousy is still there.  It's not because she wants him, but because she wants someone.  Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like that is in the cards for her.  She shrugs it off, and then finds herself meeting Cosmo, who just happens to be Cupid's son.  When Phoebe finally is convinced that he is who he says he is, she is given the ultimatum of finding love by Valentines Day in order the save the world, or risk love being removed from it forever. Cosmo has a plan, informing Phoebe about who her soul mate is and trying to help her by arranging for the two to "meet."  Phoebe is on board with whole thing, until she meets Cal, her supposed soul-mate's roommate.  Cal is quite the hottie and is throwing a wrench in her plans, causing her to have feelings and doubts that she doesn't think she has time for, or does she?  




    This is a cute short novella that is sweet and entertaining.  It's the perfect Valentine's Day story, which can be enjoyed at any time of the year.  This sweet little romance is a lot of fun and the perfect read for when you don't have a lot of time, yet want to enjoy a heartwarming little romantic fix.

    I fell in love with Cal immediately.   The author did a great job of writing from his point of view.  My only complaint is I wish the book was longer and we had more interactions and character development between Phoebe and Cal.

    Cupid comes to tell Phoebe that she must kiss her true love before midnight on Valentine’s Day or all love will be wiped from the earth. No problem. Except she didn't count on her true love having such a handsome roommate. This was a quick funny read. Be warned that once you pick it up, you won't put it down. So clear your afternoon for a few hours.

    **3.5 stars**
    A Little Bit Cupid was a sweet, bite-sized story about finding true love.

    This book was very short, and I read it in less than an hour. And I have to say, it made my wait at the Doctor's office much more bearable. I was smiling the entire time I read, and giggling more than a few times.

    Since A Little Bit Cupid is so short, I really feel like I can't say a lot, or anything, without basically telling exactly what happens. But I can say that it was fun, charming, and well-written. I adored Cosmo E. Cupid III, he was a cigar smoking son of the original Cupid, and how cute is that?! Phoebe was an easy character to like as well, and I enjoyed the banter between her and Cal. I always love to see characters fall for the person the weren't actually looking for. Too cute!

    If your liking for a sweet way to pass a bit of time, A Little Bit Cupid is a sure bet.

    This was a really cute story and you should be able to read it in under an hour.  Even with the short format, you could still feel the attraction and the tension between Cal and Phoebe, and the forced attraction between Phoebe and Adam.  Story left me thinking about all the things that would be missing in my life if love didn't exist in the world.  Great little novella.

    A cute little read

    I must admit, in the beginning I wasn't sure if I was going to like the book or not. I mean the premise of the story is crazy. Phoebe, who is over thirty has NEVER been in love and Cupid shows up and tells her that she has to kiss her soul mate by Valentine's Day, otherwise the world will lose it's ability to love. Really? An then Cupid..... What happened to the cute little cherub? And, I forgot to mention Valentine's Day is a week away.

    Okay, all the crazy stuff is out of the way. A Little Bit Cupid is a short cute romance. Cupid hands Phoebe an envelope and tells her that inside the envelope is all she needs to know about her soul mate. Well, it turns out that Adam Lovello and Phoebe Ward have met before. It's going to be hard to live down their first encounter.

    Cupid is sure that he can help Phoebe and help save the world at the same time. Along the way Cal Crawford, Adam's roommate, walks into the picture and things get a little mixed up. This is a story of proving that there truly is a such thing as love at first sight and that you just have to know when to follow your own heart.

    I must admit I found myself wanting more from the book. I didn’t want it to end.

    Pheobe is Cupid's last shot... literally. If Pheobe can't manage

    Pheobe is Cupid's last shot... literally. If Pheobe can't manage to have a toe curling kiss with her soul-mate by the end of Valentine's Day, than Cupid will cease to exist. The only problem is the man that Cupid has chosen for her is great and all but his roommate is the one that she clearly has chemistry with.

    I thought this was a cute romance and liked the characters in the story. I'm not a huge fan of novellas but I do like to give them a try every once in a while. The problem with novellas for me is that I normally have difficulty connecting with the characters but the author wrote her characters in a way that you felt for them in the short span of time that you know them. I liked the way Jennifer mixed the mythological Cupid in with a modern romance without skipping a beat. At first I wondered how the whole Cupid thing would work out but I really did find myself enjoying her take on Cupid, or rather, Cosmo.

    My only problem with the story was the insta-love. At first Cosmo (Cupid's son) says that he will give her a little help in the love department when it came to making this all happen with Adam (her soul-mate). So, Pheobe spends all her time trying to get close to Adam, and even Cal (the roommate) offers to help her get Adam's attention. (Even though Cal is immediately attracted to Pheobe and visa verse.) I could understand if Cupid's giving you a little push causing you to instantly fall in love but Phoebe and Cal's insta-love for each other trumped Cupid's arrow in this case. The story just felt a little rushed to me and I would've liked a little bit more time for the "love" to blossom naturally. I know it's a short story so in theory there is supposed to be a lot of story in a short amount of time but I personally didn't have enough time to get my bearings from her chasing down and kissing one guy and then going to the next. I just needed maybe a few hours in between the two kisses to be comfortable with the sudden change.

    If you enjoy reading short stories and want something perfect for Valentine's day than this is a perfect read. You get a little love, a couple of hot hunks and Cupid. What more could you ask for?

    Thirty-one year old wedding photographer Phoebe Ward has never b

    Thirty-one year old wedding photographer Phoebe Ward has never been in love. In fact she highly doubts that she will ever find true love, and has given up looking for love. She thinks that it may be in the cards for some, but Cupid seems to have missed his mark with her.




    While photographing her ex-fiance Kyle's wedding, a funny little man looking like Fred Flinstone and chain-smoking cigars approaches her after overhearing a conversation she had with the bride's mother, and hands her his business card, Cosmo E. Cupid III, Love Expert. Cosmo said he is the son of Cupid, and he has been sent to help her find her soul mate and fall in love. She thinks he is ridiculous and she is skeptical, but he tells her that she can't run away from her destiny.




    Cosmo tells Phoebe that if she doesn't let him help her, all love will cease to exist on earth. He says that there is a celestial war going on in the heavens between love and hate, and that his father, Cupid, has been trying to negotiate a peace treaty, and that she has been chosen to save love and humanity. Discordia, the goddess of discord and her cronies want to wipe love off the planet completely. Both sides have agreed that if Phoebe can find true love by Valentine's Day, which is a week away, she will save love, but if she doesn't, then love and humanity will cease to exist, and Earth will become a pretty dismal place with so much hate and strife. There is just two caveats to the plan: Phoebe doesn't get to pick who her soul mate will be, rather it is Cupid who has found the perfect soul mate for her; and she needs to have a full-on, toe-curling kiss by her soul mate before midnight on Valentine's Day. Love's fate for the whole world rests upon her shoulders.




    Can Phoebe help save love and humanity? Can Phoebe fall in love with the man Cupid chose for her, even if she is more attracted to his roommate? Come along with Phoebe and Cosmo as they strive to make his plan to find true love for her a success before the Valentine's Day deadline. Will it take a little bit of Cupid and a little bit of her heart to find Phoebe's soul mate and also save love?




    A Little Bit Cupid is a fun little romance novella that is a perfect read for the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday. In this modern day fairy tale romance, author Jennifer Shirk weaves a lighthearted tale of believing in and finding true love. Written in the third person narrative and set in Boston, the reader is treated to a fun romance story with quirky characters, sassy dialogue, and an entertaining storyline that has a lot of laugh-out-loud moments.




    The reader will be entertained as Phoebe's antics keeps getting her sidetracked from finding true love with Mr. Right because of her attraction to Mr. Wrong. Even with Cosmo Cupid in her corner providing the perfect soul mate, Phoebe's heart is telling her something else, but time is quickly running out. With a lot humor, snark, romance and hilarious misadventures, this fast-paced romance story gets two thumbs up, a bunch of chocolate kisses, red hearts, and one big smile on my face.




    A Little Bit Cupid is the perfect story for everyone who enjoys modern day fairy tale romances and believes in true love!

    This is a cute short story about finding love. Seriously, that's

    This is a cute short story about finding love. Seriously, that's what it's all about. There is Cosmo who is Cupid's son, and he is in charge of making sure that Phoebe finds true love by Valentine's Day or love will forever be gone!! No one will ever love again. Tragic right? That also means he won't exist and the evil Gods win. Sounds a little melodramatic and cheesy, I know. But really, it's not. It was a fun and quick story to read and I enjoyed it. It's a great way to get into the spirit of Valentine's Day with a bit of humor, snark, miscommunications, and of course romance.

    Phoebe is a photographer and loves what she does. She knows that true love exists, she captures it on film all the time, she just doesn't think it exists for her. When she meets Cosmo she thinks he is crazy at first, but decides to humor him, what can go wrong, right? Well, she falls for her supposed soulmates roomate. She tries as hard as she can to fight it knowing that the fate of love everywhere rests in her hands and she needs to make Mr. soulmate fall in love with her, not chase the wrong guy. I admired her for wanting to do what she thought was right, but wanted to smack her for not seeing that love was there staring her in the face and to not brush it off. Being that this was a short story I didn't really feel a connection of any sort to her, but I liked her enough and really wanted her to have her happy ending.

    Cal was really fun. He is against commitment and has always kept people at arms length. He is smart, successful, and sexy, but he is always afraid to let anyone get too close and take advantage of him. I loved seeing him finally let the walls down and really just try to go for it with Phoebe. I felt so bad for him when she continued to shoot him down and then wanted to be friends. He was great. I liked reading from his POV better than Phoebe's. He was a bit more interesting.

    Overall this was a super fun and quick read with a fast and entertaining romance. There isn't really a whole lot of depth to it, but it was a great read to get lost in. If you are looking for a romance with some fun characters then this is a good one to pick up. I really like Jennifer Shirk's writing and will be reading more from her for sure!
