I felt giddy with excitement as these two little doves finally got to be together. It was a short read but filled fluffy goodness.  sometimes you just want to read a book that makes you fall in love with the act of falling in love itself and this is it!

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The Trouble with Playing Cupid is a cute and sweet story that you can read in one sitting. December is a successful singer with a heart of gold. I LOVE December! I found her non-divaness refreshing, and she donates a lot of money to charities. She uses her fame and money to help others, and that endeared her to me for life. Tom is a British actor and a total heartthrob. I wasn't quite rooting for a romance between the two at first because during the appearance on Trace Randall's show, Tom seemed a little bit like a jerk and too aloof for my liking. Does he not pay attention to who other people are? He didn't even know who December is! I'm pretty sure IRL British actors know American celebrities. They mix. They mingle. I was kind of like, "How dare you, Tom!" See how much I love December?? "When he played the role of a self-indulgent vampire..." = best line ever! I laughed so hard when I read that about Tom! Kind of sounds like a Lestat-type character. When I realized there's more to Tom than what he shows on camera, I was on board for him to get together with December. I liked the buildup to their romance, and it was very sweet. The Trouble with Playing Cupid had me laughing, swooning, and cringing - sometimes all three at the same time. I ended up loving the characters, especially December's bodyguard and stylist. There was more telling than showing sometimes, but it's a short read, so I think it was in order to give background on the characters. I thought The Trouble with Playing Cupid was a standalone going in, but once I found out there's a sequel, I'm looking forward to finding out more about December's best friend and agent, Clarissa.

5 STARS! If you want the sweetest most feel-good romance imaginable, read this book. In my lifetime I’ve known two couples who seemed to be over-the-moon happy in their marriages, and I thought about them the whole time I read the TROUBLE WITH PLAYING CUPID. I love the needle and thread analogy that Tom, the gorgeous British leading guy, uses—how you can keep trying to thread a needle and snipping the thread and nothing syncs. Then suddenly the thread lines up and you just know it’s going to work. Tom says, “..what if that’s what finding your soul mate is like? That you’re the needle and the threads are different people in your life but once the one for you shows up, you just know by gut instinct. And you didn’t need to have your heart broken a billion times to know it.” I also loved the main character, December. Even though she’s a super talent and generous to a fault, she’s quirky, approachable, and needing to find her missing puzzle piece—Tom.
