I know I've probably already said this before in one of my many ARC's from Lila Monroe, but this has gotta be my favorite! I remember reading an excerpt at the end of Noah and Eve's story and I have been waiting in dire anticipation ever since!

I loved it! I enjoyed tagging along Poppy and Dylan. It was sweet and funny and inspiring. I didn't want it to end! It was definitely a mood-booster and a welcome distraction from reality.

Both main characters are relatable... the pacing was great... the ev

Cupids Anonymous is adorable,I definitely enjoyed it.

Poppy is a modern Cyrano,she writes every kind of romantic notes for her clients and Dylan is one of her regular customer.He is a serial dater and he often needs some sweet words to earn his way back into his models lookalikes dates' good graces.

Cupids Anonymous by Lila Monroe was a fabulously funny story. The main characters gave me a heart-warming feeling whilst reading their story, even if Dylan started out as a bit of a ladies man. He soon changed his tune though, once he opened his eyes and saw the real Poppy, not the Cyrano to his love life.
From the outset, their chemistry was undeniably hot and only got hotter the longer they spent time in each other’s company. It’s filled with sexy innuendo, sassy banter and two people just made

This book was amazing! Not enough words for me to express how much I loved it. It may not be fully perfect, but it was enough to keep me entertain because there are so many great and hilarious moments happening in the story.

Poppy has a lot of way with words, she’s a genius Cyrano. She helps people get hooked up together, and is seriously the best at helping out men getting their own women. She was asked to do an important task by Dylan—her client—to write something in order for him to win the wo

Poppy has a way with words, she has been able to craft a career out of her writing talent. Mostly doing freelancing for people who struggle to find the right words, particularly when they are ‘courting’ someone or writing something for a special occasion.

Dylan is one of her most frequent clients. Always looking for the magic words to go with flowers when he is wooing his current object of desire - these seem to change every few weeks or so. And then Jasmine comes into his sights after not having

I just love reading romantic comedies and I have found that Lila Monroe has talent for them, I know that there’s a lot of authors that write the same genres but most of the time they can tend to blend together, however, with Lila’s books they tend to stand out to me, just like there’s one other author who’s romantic comedies stand out to me too as they put their own twist on them.

Author Lila Monroe can be counted on to provide a lighthearted, entertaining escape in every book she publishes. Cupid’s arrow hits the bull’s eye with the author’s latest novella, Cupids Anonymous.

Poppy’s business as a modern day Cyrano de Bergerac fulfills her romantic tendencies without having to risk the pain of heartbreak. It doesn’t, however, prevent the pain of dealing with a womanizer like Dylan Griffin, who happens to be her best customer.

These characters were determined to leave their mark and the author stopped at nothing to ensure just that the story was joyous.
Dylan and Poppy were great together even though if he had gotten his own way, they may never have had that opportunity, fate played the pair of them and they were all the better for it.
Dylan liked the ladies and I wasn’t surprised in the slightest he was never hurting for company so to speak or at least the opportunity for company but it was the woma

Absolutely adorable!

Cupids Anonymous is a fun and funny read. The banter between Poppy and Dylan--whether when they're working together, acting as friends, or something more--is fantastic. Both Poppy and Dylan's internal dialog was pretty darn funny too. Okay, I'll admit it, there was more than a little snort-laughing going on while I was reading this one. I'm not sure what has taken me so long to read a Lila Monroe book, but you'd better believe i

What do you get when you put a modern-day Cyrano with an incorrigible, unrepentant playboy and add in a metric ton of chemistry? If it’s a Lila Monroe book, you get a hilarious, steamy story that squeezes your heart while it keeps you in stitches.

Poppy Hathaway has made a career of penning the words of adoration and devotion that those in love are unable to express. She has two rules in her business: never take credit for your work and never fall for a client. Dylan Calloway is a client. A very

Fun, Fun, Fun! Hilarious, snarky, and LOL perfection! Poppy and Dylan were so fresh, everything executed with perfect timing which had me laughing or smiling through the entire book.  

Poppy's job is a professional purveyor of the written word, or a Cyrano. She can write up a love poem, a juicy text, a memorable wedding toast, or even an apology love note. Her latest job has her tied to Dylan, a chronic manwhore or as she lovingly refers to-

Nothing beats a funny rom-com that gives you all the laughs and hearts. Looks like I found another quirky and heartwarming story in Cupid Anonymous and another one-click author that I love. I find that I can relate to and laugh at the quips woven in the story and I loved Lila’s sarcastic sense of humor. Poppy and Dylan were adorable and funny. It was amusing to see how their relationship transformed from employee-client, to friends then to lovers. I enjoyed their witty banters and their intera ...more

A sweet and funny romance.

I’m a big fan of this author and when I read the blurb for this, I couldn’t wait to read it.

Poppy is the queen of romance and has her own business that aids others with their romances. Writing poems, wedding vows and giving advice on how to woo people comes easy to her which is surprising as her own love life is nonexistent. She has one client who constantly keeps her busy with a variety of different woma

Poppy and Dylan are just so ...... *swoon*

I don't know how Lila Monroe does it, but each new book has a fresh feel to it. I've read other rom-com's where the characters and/or situations start to feel very 'samey', but I never get that feel with this author. I would have read Cupids Anonymous in one sitting if sheer exhaustion hadn't made it impossible to focus on the plot.

If I had one wish, I'd love to see the author shake up the standard rom-com formula of (view spoiler)

A good romantic comedy will make you swoon, laugh and probably get upset at times too and Cupid’s Anonymous delivered this in abundance.
Poppy has a way with words, so much so that she freelances as a modern-day Cyrano and has clients who pay her to write poems, love letters, even their wedding vows!
I would say she is all about romance. She believes that true love exists, she wants to be romanced, and she wants it all. But alas she is single and the dates she has been on are a flop.
