Tanto que criticarle a este libro, tan pocos caracteres...
Me sigue pareciendo increíble que, una mujer de treinta años se crea la fantástica historia que le cuenta un señor gordito, con nombre de padrino mágico en una boda, con semejante rapidez. Sin mencionar la historia a lo Percy Jackson que le cuenta, en donde los dioses están en guerra, y solo ella puede salvarlos a todos si besa a su alma gemela antes de la medianoche de San Valentín –no pregunten ni el motivo de su pelea, ni el porqué Pho

*3.5 rounded to 4 stars.

This is a cute short story about finding love. Seriously, that's what it's all about. There is Cosmo who is Cupid's son, and he is in charge of making sure that Phoebe finds true love by Valentine's Day or love will forever be gone!! No one will ever love again. Tragic right? That also means he won't exist and the evil Gods win. Sounds a little melodramatic and cheesy, I know. But really, it's not. It was a fun and quick story to read and I enjoyed it. It's a great way to

Cupid comes to tell Phoebe that she must kiss her true love before midnight on Valentine’s Day or all love will be wiped from the earth. So they set out to find her soul mate and actually know who it is. But once they’ve found Mr. Right, she keeps getting sidetracked by Mr. Wrong (his friend). This made me chuckle. Fast-paced and Fun with a capital "F".

Thirty-one year old wedding photographer Phoebe Ward has never been in love. In fact she highly doubts that she will ever find true love, and has given up looking for love. She thinks that it may be in the cards for some, but Cupid seems to have missed his mark with her.

While photographing her ex-fiance Kyle's wedding, a funny little man looking like Fred Flinstone and chain-smoking cigars approaches her after overhearing a conversation she had with the bride's mother, and hands her his business

A Little Bit Cupid is a short but sweet love story that requires immediate reality suspension in order to enjoy this adventure to its fullest. It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day, or anytime you’re in the mood for a fun romance.

In this story, we meet Phoebe who has lived her life dodging love and simply believing it’s just not in her cards. Then one day she collides with Cosmo who was sent by the gods to deliver the message that they are at war with Discordia, who plans to wipe love off the planet

A Little Bit Cupid a sweet short holiday story that should be on everyone's must read list for Valentine's Day.

Jennifer Shirk gives us this tasty little treat. Who knew Cupid, or rather his son, could really save the universe? In a modern day romance, you throw in Cupid and what you think is going to happen, is so not what happens.

Esta historia lo leí el mismo San Valentín, fue sin querer en realidad, planeaba pasarme ese día con una maratón de Dr. House pero mi vicio por los libros pudo más. Además era cortito y no iba a tomarme mucho tiempo.

Tenemos a Pheobe que ha desistido en encontrar el amor, es más, se ha dado cuenta que nunca ha estado enamorada. Un poco deprimida por ese pensamiento se encuentra con un extraño individuo que dice ser el mismísimo Cupido y que si ella no se enamora para San Valentín, el amor desapar
¿Quería o no quería leer este libro? En un principio sí, pero pensándolo mejor, no. Paso de lecturas donde la protagonista tiene tan poca personalidad que hace caso a cualquiera que le diga hacia donde debe dirigir su vida, en este caso, Cupido. Cupido le dice a Phoebe que debe casarse con Adam, y Phoebe acepta. Pero a Phoebe le gusta Cal. Entonces, ¿dónde está la personalidad de Phoebe? ¿Y su ingenuidad, cómo puede creer en Cupido?

No me produjo nada básicamente. Me pareció una historia muy forzada y sosa, la protagonista bien tonta para la edad que tiene y esa cosa de los dioses fue como haber leído una versión romántica tipo parodia de Percy Jackson. Dos estrellas porque me hizo reír un par de veces y porque la verdad es bastante cortita y apenas me saco tiempo.

My Rant:

A little bit cupid was a quick read but you got a full-blown story in such a short period of time. I was so sad when the book ended because I would have liked to get more of a glimpse of Phoebe future with her soul mate. I know, I know, I don’t want to ruin the story for you so I am trying to write this review without giving away too much.

The humor in the book was right on point and darn funny especially Mr. Cupid himself. The plot to the story was well developed and you gain such a conn

A Little Bit Cupid is a very adorable Valentine's short story. Cosmo, Cupid's son, needs Phoebe's help to save the world of love and happy endings. She needs to find her soul-mate and kiss him before Valentine's Day to make everything normal. Sounds crazy, right? I read it within an hour and despite the story being very rushed, I enjoyed the overall concept. I would have loved to read a full length novel about it with more details.

It was a lovely book <3 I liked it from the first pages but it was too short. It’s the first book I have ever read with Cupid and it was really nice.

Phoebe was a photographer and she never was really in love. She didn’t believe in love at first sight and she made a big mistake. She met Cupid on her fiancé’s wedding and she didn’t believe he was real. But after Cosmo (Cupid) tells her that the love from the world is in her hands, she starts to believe that he is really Cupid. For save the wor

I must admit, in the beginning I wasn't sure if I was going to like the book or not. I mean the premise of the story is crazy. Phoebe, who is over thirty has NEVER been in love and Cupid shows up and tells her that she has to kiss her soul mate by Valentine's Day, otherwise the world will lose it's ability to love. Really?

It was the perfect length to read in one sitting, and left me with a gigantic smile on my face. I especially loved that Jennifer Shirk was able to include a little bit of mythology, and a war against good and evil into the story...explained to us by one very unappealing Cupid. :P haha

Of course, what I loved most was the romance between Phoebe and Cal! Their banter was fantastic...and the sparks between them were sizzling! I also thought that Phoebe was a wonderful main character, and I enjoyed r

A Little Bit Cupid is the embodiment of ‘short and sweet’. It was funny, cute, and really appealed to the romantic in me.

For such a short story, I felt like I actually got to know the characters. I liked and related to Phoebe, and I fell for…well, for the love interest (I don’t want to give anything away!) immediately. I was pleasantly surprised with how well-developed the

A Little Bit Cupid was a sweet, bite-sized story about finding true love.

This book was very short, and I read it in less than an hour. And I have to say, it made my wait at the Doctor's office much more bearable. I was smiling the entire time I read, and giggling more than a few times.

Since A Little Bit Cupid is so short, I really feel like I can't say a lot, or anything, without basically telling exactly what happens. But I can say that it was fun, charming, and well-written. I ador

This was a really cute story and you should be able to read it in under an hour. Even with the short format, you could still feel the attraction and the tension between Cal and Phoebe, and the forced attraction between Phoebe and Adam. Story left me thinking about all the things that would be missing in my life if love didn't exist in the world. Great little novella.

I don't know why but this book just hit all the right triggers with me. Yeah, it was short, but it was sweet, it was funny (I even laughed out loud once or twice)and I just had to turn the page and find out what was going to happen even though I knew what would happen. I'm still smiling.

It could've been really cute if it weren't for all the innuendos & language. Too much of it for my taste in such a short amount of time.

Moral Note: "B" word, a few "dang"'s and some mild to heavy innuendos. Some brief talk on getting drinks/drinking. Oh, and Cosmo aka Cupid smokes cigars.
