REVIEW: Cupids Anonymous by Lila Monroe


“Rule #1: Don’t get hit by your own arrow…”

Readers around the world are raving over USA Today bestselling author Lila Monroe’s hilarious romantic comedies. Now fall in love with her brand new sizzling standalone – perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Christina Lauren!

Poppy Hathaway is a professional Cyrano – minus the honking great nose. Need a love note, raunchy sext, or apology letter so epic that your other half will forget you hesitated a beat too long when you asked, ‘does this make me look fat?’? She’s got you covered. But when her most frequent client, the annoyingly charming (or is that charmingly annoying?) Dylan Griffin comes to her with an unconventional new job, Poppy discovers that three little words can add up to one big complication.

Because Dylan doesn’t want help seducing another swimsuit model (for once in his life). He wants Poppy’s help winning over her his high-school crush (aka, his one true love) – and he’s prepared to make it worth her while. Throw in a summer Catskills trip that’s equal parts ‘Dirty Dancing’ and dirty-talking, and this Cupid is soon out of her depth – and head over heels with the last man she expected. But can she find the right words when it comes to her own heart? Or will this happily ever end in disaster?

My Review

I’m a high school English teacher, so I’m definitely familiar with Cyrano De Bergerac, but in Lila Monroe’s newest release, she modernizes the behind-the-scenes romance whisperer, broadening the different ways that heroine, Poppy Hatahway, can assist her clients in making amends for wrongdoings against those they love or find a way to say the right words that just might give them a second chance with someone they like and perhaps could possibly love.

But with Dylan Griffin’s new request, Poppy’s role changes and she finds herself in quite the non-Cyrano situation, because the more time these two spend together, the more involved their connection becomes, evolving from a professional one to one of friendship to one with a whole lot of sexual tension and a surfacing of feelings that won’t only complicate Poppy’s task, but just might send her spiraling in a way that she never thought she’d find herself in, at least when it came to what she always thought she wanted when it came to a significant other. 

It’s difficult to see what’s truly in front of someone when that person is playing a role to help reunite you with another woman, and that’s exactly what happens to Dylan. Despite his growing connection to Poppy, she still is acting on his behalf for someone else to fall in love with him, so that poses a bit of a problem. But the way Lila Monroe helps Dylan to see just how lovable his quirky and full of life Cyrano truly is forces them both to make a decision about what happens next, which is about so much more than knowing what to say when it comes to love.

Cupids Anonymous is a sweet and funny romcom that makes for a perfect summer read. I definitely had a bit of a girl crush on Poppy and once readers were privy to who Dylan is at his core, I wanted him for Poppy; I just didn’t know how that would happen given what her professional objective was at the beginning of the story, but I sure did enjoy watching it all unfold.
