Cupid Calamity by Kelly Kay & Evie Alexander
Published: February 3, 2022
Genre: RomCom, Anthology
KKECReads Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Kelly Kay is a writer, married to a writer, mother of a creative dynamo of a ten-year-old boy, and currently a little sleepy. She is a klutz and goofball and loves lipstick as much as her Chuck Taylors. And most likely, she will have a glass of wine or a cup of coffee in her hand.
Evie Alexander is the author of sexy romantic comedies with a very British sense of humour. She takes a systematic approach to her work, believing her capacity to fail at life and love repeatedly is what has given her such a rich supply of material for her writing.
Animal Attraction by Evie Alexander
“It was a Disney cartoon come to life – with more noise and excrement.”
When his flight back home is delayed, Ben ends up making friends with the rowdy bunch stranded with him. He didn’t realize it at the time, but these would become his tribe. Laurie is intelligent, funny, capable, kind, hardworking, and beautiful. On her 30th birthday, she goes to dinner with two friends from work, and the last thing she expected was to find her soulmate… and angry, angry hippos.
Charming story. The dinner scene was equal parts funny after terrifying. I’m not as scared of animals as Laurie, but I definitely would not want a chimpanzee serving me dinner.
I enjoyed this novella, and I loved Ben and Laurie’s story. I also wanted the surprise side character! Very sweet, very funny, and very original!
Stupid Cupid by Kelly Kay
“I will summit him.”
The last thing Sabrina wants to do is meet the blind date her sister arranged for her. So when tall and handsome Patrick strolls in, she hopes for 10 seconds that he’s her date. But he isn’t. Patrick plans to spend Valentine’s Day with a stranger until the blond bombshell steals his breath. Now, will this be cozy or chaos?
This was fast-paced and well done. I enjoy how the other characters’ ages are intertwined throughout the story.
I enjoyed getting to know Sabrina more, and despite their unspoken truths, there is more than wicked king chemistry between them.
There just maybe love. I enjoyed the way the characters bantered and how it felt as though
they had a deeper connection. A delightful romance with just the right amount of well-placed comedy. Heartwarming and steamy, a charming novel.
