Review: CUPID ON THE LOOSE: A Valentine’s Day Anthology of short stories

“Valentine’s Day was invented by men in an attempt to make single women desperate enough to accept clearly inferior males.” (LOC 268)

From a female plumber looking to score on V-Day to old lovers reuniting in a scene from a live reading at a bookstore, stories are a mix of cute and fun. Not all were that great or funny. Some were boring and dumb. Obviously, the thing that ties all these stories together is a stray cupid on the loose—some guy with wings and a diaper.

My favorite one had to be the story of Annabelle Lopez and her secret admirer. Another good one was the one with a strong, resilient woman realizing that her boyfriend is not the one for her and puts her own needs first.

My rating: 3 stars
