Overview

For any woman who has ever bought a self-help book and wondered why she bothered. (P.S. Now that I know he’s just not that into me, where do I go from there? Yeah, thanks for that advice.)

Jennifer Love Hewitt is a self-proclaimed “love-aholic” and a hopeless romantic (her middle name is Love, after all!). She has been lucky and unlucky in love, and lived to tell—and she’s done it all in the spotlight. Much has been written about her love life—some true, most made up to sell magazines. Now Hewitt shares the real story of what she’s learned navigating the dangerous dating waters.

In The Day I Shot Cupid, Hewitt offers her hard-won wisdom and tells us how to embrace love with both feet on the ground. Funny, quirky, and empowering, The Day I Shot Cupid deserves a place on every woman’s nightstand, bookshelf, or coffee table, or tucked inside her oversized designer handbag.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this scattershot celebrity self-help, actress Hewitt puts an irreverent but unconvincing personal spin on The Rules. Hewitt muses on her personal experience as a "serial dater," drawing lessons and telling tales from her extensive experience with romantic disappointment. Too often, that results in overgeneralization-the three types of men (macho, metrosexual, and heroic), the 17 stages of relationship (from "the eye contact" to "the engaged")-or unfocused, supremely unhelpful anecdotes (cheering herself after a break-up by un-ironically getting her "hoo-ha" adorned with Swarovski crystals). Advice, what there is, is largely vague and of secondary importance, recycling familiar approaches to respecting oneself in mind and body and keeping your man on his toes; first and foremost, the book's subject is Hewitt, which should limit its appeal to her most ardent fans.

Library Journal
Just for fun comes actor and self-proclaimed "love-aholic" Hewitt's book on letting go of idealistic childhood romantic fantasies in order to embrace strong, realistic, and mature relationships. Using her experience, she contrasts old school and new school dating, talks about surviving a breakup, and offers consolation on broken diets and varicose veins. Single young women will find a kindred spirit, while older readers will discover what's happening in today's dating world.
