True Rating 4.5 stars!

Unable to muster the energy or desire to do much of anything, Roxie ends up back at home with her parents. Even though her parents mean well, the way that they are coping with their daughter’s depression is not necessarily healthy for anyone.

Unexpectedly, one day an invitation arrives for Roxie to attend a mysteri

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This is the first book I have read from this author and it is a short story.

First off, I loved the aspect of Cupid's Cafe and I think it would be interesting to see the other couples Cupid's Cafe brings together. It seems magical in itself, even though it is hardly mentioned in the book.
Roxie is so damaged when she meets Aiden again and she's at the end of her rope. She is no longer a social worker and suffers from a traumatic situations t

Thanks to Lori Sizemore for giving me a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.

Exactly like you is the first in the Cupid’s Cafe series. What I’m guessing is that it’s a series that will feature two different characters each time that will be summoned to Cupid’s Cafe and be set up to fall in love…exactly my kind of stories.

This first book focuses on Roxie and Aiden, two people whose paths have crossed before when their lives were very different. Roxie was a social worker who is no

This is the first book in the latest series from Lori Sizemore and I will say now that if this is story is anything to go by I cannot wait to read the rest, I loved this.
I loved the push and pull between Aidan and Roxie, the fact that he was willing to see the woman inside and not the shell of a woman that she appears to be.
Living with her folks gives them grounds to worry about her and also gives her grounds to worry about them worrying, so she is well and truly caught in a cycle that she does

I have to say that I loved the mysterious way that Roxie is invited to Cupid's Café it really is a lovely touch. A chance meeting there sends Roxie on quite a journey to finding herself again. With both herself and Aidan having had difficult pasts that have left them in a vulnerable place.

There are a few themes in this story including friendship, romance, and grief and they are all packaged together in a sweet and entertaining story. It's a story about taking a leap of faith and hopefully getti

A little something different

Roxie is living at home with no job or friends. Her parents are worried about her depression. Enter an invitation to the Cupid Cafe that she ignores.

When he sees her, he just wants to say, Thank You. But he sees something is wrong. So it all starts with a motorcycle ride. Aiden pushing and Roxie not ready for

Great start to what promises to be a thoroughly entertaining series. We begin with an intriguing invitation that leads to a chance meeting at the ever interesting Cupid's Cafe. The book has a great romance for sure that begins with the sweetest of friendships. What surprised me the most though was the real look at depression the book gave us and how realistic the struggle was.

The book was just o.k. Predictable.

Predictable but just o.k. The main character Rosie was annoyingly immature but trying to come off as mature professional dealing with depression.

(I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.)

Roxie Fisher feels like she hit rock bottom. No longer with a job, she moves back home and would rather not step foot outside unless necessary. With her parents terribly worried about how depressed she has become, her mother is thrilled to see Roxie has been invited to the Cupid Café and tries her very best to get her to go check it out. Aiden is a firefighter who aims to live life at its fullest. With a random invitation to th

She loves to read a good book, in any genre, but her favorite is romance. Find her
