This book is the perfect completion to cory and katie story I floved it. Seriously it was perfect. Katie and Cory give it another go and their story was so sweet. I loved how over the top Cory is.
Stupid cupid is book two in the holiday heartthrob’s series. This book is a continuation of book one, Katie and Cory’s story. This story is short, fast paced and a nice read. I read this book in one sitting and was satisfied throughout. Cory is gutted at what happened with Katie. He is determined to get her to give him another chance but will she?
Katie is hurt by what Cory did but she still wants him. When things take a turn, she soon finds herself with a secret of her own.

Book two in the holiday Heartthrob series continues with the tale of Cory and Katie and picks up right where they left off at the end of book one in the series Bidding On Santa. You do need to read these books in order to fully appreciate the story and the characters. This story is their story's continuation but moves to another holiday from Christmas to Valentines Day and they are just as perfect for this holiday as they were for the last. I really enjoyed their love story and how everything fi ...more

I will be the first to admit that after the cliffhanger Ms. Reynolds left us with Katie and Cory I was pretty peeved and anxious for the next one. I loved her and hated her for making me want it so desperately.


SO you can imagine my excitement when I got to read the second book!


I read stupid cupid in one sitting and I absolutely felllll in lust and eternal LOVE with Cory!


From his perfect balance of being there for Katie with patience and alpha deliciousness to the BDSM and sexy time, Ms. Reynol

Cupid isn't always stupid

Sometimes cupid knows what he's doing even if the couple in his sights thinks he's wrong. Cory and Katie have an undeniable chemistry, and I thought the conclusion to their story was a great way to finish the two books. I liked the growth in both characters. Where bidding on Santa had me panting for more the heat in this book didn't quite get me going as much which is why I dropped my star to a 4 and 1/2.

overall I think this series is a great quick read that is sure to

This is the conclusion to Bidding on Santa. It starts with a smack in the jaw and a broken finger. Katie was furious when she found out Santa was Cory. There were a lot of sizzling moments here and a secret that needed to be confessed. Will they work it out and have their HEA? The story was funny and sexy and deserves to be read.

Ah, what a brilliant conclusion to to this two part novella series. Stupid Cupid starts off where Bidding on Santa finishes, with Katie discovering that Santa, her Sir, was not who she thought he was. And she’s not pleased. Not one bit. As Cory soon finds out to his dismay.
It takes an accident with her best friend to get them back together and when they do. Sparks fly once more. Will Cory get the girl of his dreams. Will Cupid lose his arrow in time to win Katie back or are they destined to be s

Loved this book.

This series is a must read. It will have you laughing. Annelise Reynolds has a fan of her writing. She is an amazing writer. She grabs your attention and she keeps it with her writing. If you like romantic comedy's this is a book for you. If you have never read Anneliese's books before you need to give her books a try.

Stupid the perfect ending to Cory and Katie's story. The book picks right up where Bidding on Santa ended. Katie now knows that Cory was the Santa and she is not pleased at all. They have their ups and downs but all works out in the end. I laughed, cried, and swooned at the very hot steamy moments between the couple.

This was a very fun book and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I highly recommend this series to everyone who enjoys a great, funny, and OMG hot story. Well done and I can't w

If you haven't read Biding on santa go read it! This story picks up where we left off. And I loved every second of it just like the first novella. This is a fast read with lots of steam. Will Katie see that Cory really is a gift from Cupid or will she continue to deny the chemistry between them. Cory finds something out and decides to try and use it to his benefit. Will it work or will Cupid fail this couple? ...more

I have to say up front this was my first read by Annelise Reynolds. And I did receive this book as a gift. I did feel as if I was missing part of the story by not reading the first book in the series, but you catch up pretty quickly in this book.

This was such a fun read. Katie and Cory's relationship is very believable. They meet through their best friends who are married in this book. Well, Katie unknowingly bought Cory at an auction. After what she believes in a one night stand with a strange

Well let me start by saying that Annelise Reynolds has a new fan. After reading the first novella I couldn't wait to start this one and see where Katie and Cory would end up.
Annelise drew me into not only the story but into her characters as well. I found myself talking out to loud to both Cory and Katie as if they were right there in the room with me. I thought that this was the perfect follow up to Bidding on Santa. I just couldn't put it down. In the end I d

Annelise Reynolds is a new author to me and if all her books are like this one I think I'm gonna stalk her books for sure.
Her writing is super funny, simple and very detailed, just the way I like it.
Stupid cupid revolves around Katie and Cory's lifes.

Well... I loved this book so much. After reading Bidding on Santa I couldn't wait to read this and I was not disappointed.

The heat is still there and is scorching. I normally skim or skip sex scenes in books as I have found them too repetitive and boring but Annelise sure knows how make it hot and so not boring. *wipes brow*

Cory and Katie are perfect for each other but Cory needs her complete submission, including her secrets. Katie wants to submit but is scared.

I recommend reading both books

A sweet & sexy conclusion to Cory & Katie’s story that began in Bidding On Santa! It was filled with tender moments & plenty of steamy romps!!

I have to admit, I was a bit irked with how long it took Katie to confess her secret to Cory but I understand why she felt the need to hide it for so long. Thrilled to bits that Cory was so patient with her!

Very pleased with how Cory & Katie’s happily ever after played out. I am ALWAYS a sucker for grand gestures of sorts & there was a totally “a

To say Katie is upset at finding out Cory was her Santa is an understatement! Determined to try to win her back, Cory stops by after a particularly grueling shift and learns something he wasn't meant to yet. Deciding to give Katie until Valentine's Day to tell him, he sets out to win her back. This is a very fun story and I highly recommend the series. ...more

But one little pregnancy test changed that. But did Cory step up to the plate and become the man she wanted and dreamed of or did he tuck his tail and run? Go read their love story!! ...more

So now the fun begins. Katie knows her secret Santa was Cory. Things change, but not so easily. Cory knows Katie is for him and he is doing his best to get her to see it. There is a twist and it is not one that anyone could imagine. Only, now it is another secret. Love this story and hope we can see more of them.
