Party-girl Allison Kelly has it all--great friends, a flourishing business, and an active sex life. She's beautiful, busy and blissfully fulfilled, with no time or inclination for a relationship. Sure, she suffers the occasional twinge of loneliness. Who doesn't? But if her latest boy-toy is unavailable, there's always another one at her friend's dating service, Cupid's Cavalry.
Life has been anything but a party for Benjamin Turner. Orphaned at fifteen, widowed at twenty-three, he traveled the world on self-imposed exile, but he couldn't outrun the loneliness eating away his soul. Finally home again, he's dedicated to serious endeavors--ending world hunger, providing clean water--not partying. But he's also ready to give life and love another chance, if only he can find the right woman. Someone serious-minded and ready to settle down, like him. It's Cupid's Cavalry to the rescue. Maybe.
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 prove to be Cupid's biggest mistake?

Fun, flirty, and fantastic! Cupid’s Mistake is an entertaining story. Allison is looking for a good time, not forever, and it’s a good thing because that’s the type of guys she dates. Having loved and lost, Ben isn’t looking at all. Until they are paired together through Cupid’s Calvary, an online dating service. I’ve been looking forward to this story ever since I read “Unwrapped” in which Allison plays a small part. It seemed like she needed a strong guy to handle her. Ms. White got in right on the mark with this story. Ben is no pushover and keeps Allison on her toes, but he’s not a jerk. When he cared for Allison during her bout with food poisoning, I melted. Strong, tender, straightforward, kind. I loved Allison's realization that she wanted a forever type of guy rather than the boy toys she’s been playing with. The time they spend together shows Allison just what type of guy Ben is, what life would be like with him, and decides that’s what she wants. Once I got started, it was hard to put my e-reader down. The story is fun, the sex HOT, and the ending extremely satisfying. What more could you want in a story?
I'll admit that at first I really couldn't stand the main character. However, it worked out perfectly. Allison is such a stark contrast to Ben that the story wouldn't be the same if Allison had been any other way. This was a fast-paced read that is the perfect light romance during these cold winter months. If you love contemporary romance, there's a good chance you'll enjoy Cupid's Mistake by Chantilly White.
Good character build for both Allison & Ben. Author, Chantilly White introduces them with just a tease of what the relationsip will grow into a lasting & enduring love. Enjoyable story, I highly recommend.
