Melissa Hosack brings a winter holiday hero from fantasy into scorching hot reality with this erotic romance. Lincoln Belmonte is not happy yet she doesn’t come across as whiny or annoying, simply frustrated with her life, like many people are. Seriously what single lady hasn’t fantasized about giving Cupid what for? I loved that she got her chance to tell the little love god off. I was hoping for some more fireworks when she finally met the guy but I did enjoy that he wasn’t quite what she was expecting. Valen is a fantastic hero and I loved how he performed his duties as it was a fantastic take on a modern way to get the job done. The heat between these two is definitely there and I loved witnessing the intense moments between them. I really enjoyed meeting Lincoln’s best friend and would love to see her story told in detail. I would enjoy seeing this author take on the challenge of some other mythological characters and bring them in to the present. This was a quick, fun, pleasant read.
As Lincoln Belmonte looks down at the candles on her birthday cake as she turns single she realizes only one person is to blame for the unhappiness in her life. Cupid. So she wishes to tell the guy off, after all he’s responsible for every broken relationship in her life and the reason she’s still single. So the next morning when she wakes up in his house, in his bed, here’s her chance but one look at Valen and she can’t decide whether to give him a piece of her mind or her body!
Turning thirty is a depressing affair for Lincoln Belmonte. Thirty wouldn’t seem quite so bad if she wasn’t single, lonely, and a world away from her projected plans. She’d expected to have a husband and children at this point in her life. Instead, she spends her evenings in solitude.
Staring down at the burning candles on her birthday cake, Lincoln makes the wish to be able to tell off Cupid. She wants answers from the man who has caused her to be jilted in love time and time again. Feeling better after her silly wish, she puts it to the back of her mind.
The next morning, Lincoln wakes up in an unfamiliar house in an unfamiliar bed. A little birthday magic saw it fit to bring her together with the man responsible for all of her problems. She is rewarded with the chance to take out her frustrations on Valentine’s holiday figurehead—Cupid. Only once she meets Valen, Lincoln can’t decide if she wants to give him a piece of her mind or seduce him.
