Dear Reader, this letter is to inform you of Cupid’s curse, which will fall upon you if you don’t pass this email on to three friends within three hours.
Tilly Morrow didn’t believe in the curse and now she hasn’t had a second date in three years…because all her first dates end in disaster. In fact, she just accidentally punched a guy in the face, leaving her without a date for Valentine’s Day!
Bryant Murphy isn’t sure if the curse is real or not, but if dating Tilly means occasionally getting assaulted with a chocolate shake or nearly electrocuted, it’s worth the risk. Armed with more lucky charms than a bowl of cereal, Bryant will have to battle flying swords, Russian mail-order brides, and shrimp linguini if he’s going to win the girl.
Cursed by Cupid is a cute short story about how a young woman ignored a cupid chain letter and as the result she thinks she has been cursed by cupid because every date she has usually ends up horrible. She hasn’t been on a second date in three years and has become extremely clumsy.
Her clumsiness get’s her noticed by the man who runs the embroidery shop where she was going to get her patch for her karate gi fixed. She accidentally trips and spills a chocolate milkshake all over the door to his shop. Even though she warns Byrant about her horrible curse he decides to take a chance anyway. If he can stay alive through their first date maybe he can get her to go out with him again and break that stupid curse.
I felt sorry for Tilly as she just had the worse luck and I thought Bryant was pretty cool to brave going out after he has heard all the horrible things that have happened on her dates.
Cursed by Cupid has a lot of quirky and cute antics that will make you laugh, but I really wished it would have been a little longer. I was just getting into it and then it was over. It’s still a cute short read and fun for a Valentine read.
