Publisher's Summary

In the first in a dazzling new series, Lori Wilde welcomes us to Cupid, Texas, where every wish for love comes true....

"When it hits, you just know..."

Natalie McCleary couldn't believe her eyes - a lean-muscled, darkly tanned, nearly naked man stood in her path...and then it hit her: love. Everyone always told her it would hit like a thunderbolt, and she never believed them. But now she knew: practical, sensible Natalie was head over heels in love - with a stranger.

But ex-Navy SEAL Dade Vega wasn't about to be a stranger for long. He'd ridden into Cupid on his motorcycle, vowing to keep a promise he'd made to a military buddy. But a single glimpse of Natalie - soaking wet and unexpectedly tempting - changed his life forever.

But how can he offer her his love, when he can't even promise to stay in one place for longer than a week?

Enjoyable romance, but not memorable.

This is a fairly enjoyable and non-taxing story following Natalie, a woman who has given up on the notion of ever falling in love, and emotionally damaged ex-Navy SEAL Dade. There is a little suspense in this story - Dade is trying to find his missing foster brother 'Red' who has gone missing from Natalie's bed and breakfast in the quaint town of Cupid. It was pretty easy to spot the bad guys very early on, and the story concentrates mainly on the emotions between the two main characters (while also introducing other characters who we will likely hear more of later!).

The narrator is ..interesting. I initially was reluctant to download this book because the sample has C J Critt sounding like Captain Kirk from the old tv series in her delivery of lines. Her delivery smooths out the further we go in the book (or maybe I just got used to it?) and by the end I was rather enjoying her narration. Worth a credit? I'm on the fence with this one. While I'll likely seek out the next in the series when it is available, there are other writers who would take priority for my precious credit!

struggled to finish,

the head talk dragged the story, would have been better a just a story short.

Cute but immature

Cute story for a young adult. The description of "love at first sight" is straight out of a Disney fairy tale. But it's cute. Not necessarily a "page turner".

Pretty good

This book was sweet I just wish there was a little more romance in the story.

Breathtaking

This was wonderfully narrated. Great storyline to boast love at first sight. My favorite part was watching them find what you already could see.

So very long and boring

Would you try another book from Lori Wilde and/or C. J. Critt?

Not likely

Any additional comments?

The book is very drawn out and didn't get to the point until the last few chapters. I usually like Lori Wilde books, but this one is not good!!!
