An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life. After the incident that caused Liv Morozov to drop out of college, years later she’s still trying to pick up the pieces of her life. She’s managed to carve out a career for herself as a photographer, but when it comes to guys? Her issues send them running for the hills, every damn time. Zane Parata has declared himself off-limits for relationships. Between trying to maintain sobriety and the long hours he works as a chef, no one wants to deal with his brand of damage, and he wouldn’t want to burden them in the first place. When Liv shows up at Cupid’s Café, she never expected to find Zane, her brother’s former best friend who had vanished one day and never returned. The sparks that surged when they were both teens rekindle stronger than ever, and all too fast, Liv and Zane entangle in each other’s lives, breaking their own rules. Except with both struggling with the demons from their past, the love that’s begun to grow is one lapse away from shattering the two of them beyond repair.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

This story was short, sweet, and to the point. It was a cute romance that allows you to escape the real world for a bit. The characters are sassy and fun. The story is realistic and the details were great. I enjoyed this quick little read.

I will say as I was reading this story, I felt like I just knew the story was going to come up short. I felt like there was going to be missing details and / or descriptions. It was a fast-paced story, a little more than a novella, but as I was reading, I just had this feeling I was going to come up short, missing details or missing a history or future. I am very happy to report I was wrong. The author did a great job providing just enough detail to keep the story flowing, keep the picture scrolling, but not overwhelm you, as the reader. I was very pleasantly pleased with the story writing and boy was I wrong!

There are some heavy emotions in this book. There is a history, there is a present, and there is a future. The history is dark and damaging. It is like walking on broken, shards of glass. The present is walking on a smooth floor with the wounds from the glass covered floor, slow but for sure they are healing. The future is walking on a smooth floor with nothing but a few scars. Those scars will never allow the past to be forgotten but allows the present to be bearable and to know the future will be better.

The characters were enjoyable. They were the types of people I could befriend in real life. They are the types of people you want to have in your corner. They made the story that much better.

If you’re curious, yes of course, I would recommend this story to you. It won’t take a lot of time to read it but you’ll be happy you did!

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *

A modern day Renaissance-woman, Katherine McIntyre has learned soapmaking, beer brewing, tea blending, and most recently roasting coffee. Most of which make sure she’s hydrated and bathed while she spends the rest of her time writing. With a desire to travel and more imagination than she knows what to do with, all the stories jumping around in her head led to the logical route of jotting them down on paper. She writes novels with snarky women, ragtag crews, and guys with bad attitudes. High chances for a passionate speech thrown into the mix.
