Synopsis:

After Evan's relationship fail during Christmas vacation, he heads back to college with a new plan. It's time for a break from dating. He doesn't want to quit the game completely though. Garland, his funny, lovable, down-to-earth roommate, is constantly talking to girls. And never asking them out.

Evan might be on a romantic hiatus but that doesn't mean he can't help his best friend find love. So, when Evan meets Abby in student government class, he trades in his player card for Cupid's bow. She and Garland would be perfect together and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know they'll never hook up without help.

His matchmaking scheme works brilliantly. A little too brilliantly. By the time Garland and Abby start hitting it off, Evan has grown quite fond of her. That's the problem with playing Cupid. If you're not careful, you run the risk of getting shot by your own arrow.

Review:

The Problem With Cupid was so cute and I couldn’t stop smiling.  If you’re looking for a quick read and enjoy NA Romance that’s sweet and adorable, then you’ll want to add this one to your tbr!

The first rule of being just friends with a girl is that you can’t kiss her. No matter how tempting it is. Especially when you’re trying to hook her up with your roommate.

I read The Trouble With Christmas and absolutely cherished that story.  Evan was the brother’s best friend in that book, but confession time….I didn’t like him.  I had my eye on someone else for the heroine, so my thoughts weren’t kind to Evan, ack.  But I enjoyed The Trouble With Christmas so much that I wanted to give Evan’s story a shot.  I’m so glad I did because not only did I enjoy this book, but I fell hard for Evan too!

“Get back here, you coward!” she yelled.
“No way!” I yelled back. “I don’t trust you not to maim me.” I grinned wickedly at her but slowed to a stop.
When she caught up, she slugged me in the arm. “That’s for being a brat.”
I pulled her into a hug.

Having to sign up for a club, sport, or student association, Evan signed up for student government representatives in college.  And on his first day he met shy, bookworm Abby.  While Evan was outgoing, confident and cocky, Abby was quiet and seemed to try and blend in.  Right away Evan started joking around with Abby and it was impossible not to smile at their antics.  Because while Evan could tease her ruthlessly, Abby could give it right back.  So I laughed out loud and couldn’t stop smiling with all the attention Evan directed at Abby.

I honestly felt guilty for ruining his date. I tried really hard to feel bad about it, too. But I couldn’t.

We got the whole story in Evan’s head, which I loved, and he thought Abby would be perfect for his roommate, Garland.  They were both quirky with different senses of humor.  So Evan tried to make sure him that they hung out with Abby and her roommate.  The moments that the four of them were together was entertaining!  But for wanting to setup his friend with Abby, he surrrrrrre had a difficult time not flirting with her lol.  And the more time he spent around Abby, the more he liked her.  What’s a guy to do?!

Some cupid I was. I’d shot myself with my own arrow.

The Problem With Cupid was a delightful story set around Valentine’s Day and I loved every minute of this novella.  Now I can’t wait to read Garland’ story next around the fourth of July wheeee!

  1. This sounds like a fun novella! And how funny that you didn’t even like Evan from the first book. LOL Sounds like the humor was spot-on, too. 🙂
