Lady Boss Press presents A Little Bit Cupid, a collection of short stories written by sixteen talented authors just in time for Valentine’s Day!

If you love sexy, sweet, angsty, funny stories… this anthology is for you. There’s something here for everyone!



I had no choice....I had to check this out! 'Tis the season after all!

There are 16 short stories here about love. I'll break this review up for each story. 


~ Wild Valentine by Melissa Belle
This was a cute way to start off. This would be awesome to see as a full story. There are a lot of family members I would love to see fall in love too. This made me happy.  5

~ I’ve Just Seen a Face by Melissa Brown
I LOVED this one. I think it was my favorite. It made me awwwwwe at the end there. 5

~ Swept Away by Lea Coll
Mmmm. It was okay. I thought things happened too fast for these two. I would've thought he was a total werido if he came over to my table. He seemed kinda creepy to be honest. 2

~ Crash Into You by JH Croix
I liked this and I am curious to read the next book since this was just a prologue. But I did not like our main guy here. He was an asshat....maybe he'll get better in the next one. 3

~ Easy Prom by Anna Edwards
Very cute and very sad. This (like the last one) was a prologue. I for sure want to read it. I want them to find their HEA! They deserve it! 4

~ Their First Chance by Bailie Hantam
This was good. I didn't like it at first, but then I fell in love with Jack and I wanted him to make her happy. She needs happiness. Poor girl. 4

~ The Perfect Proposal by Tracey Jerald
Hmmmmmm. I barely remember this one. It wasn't bad, but not very memorable for me. 2 

~ Three Hearts by Leigh Lennon
Sooo cheesy and unrealistic...especially the ending and "twist", BUUUUUT I really liked this one. It was cute and hot. Luckily girl getting two hotties for life ;) 4

~ Wrong for Me by Stacey Lewis
UGH this one pissed me off. Sorry you have a crappy marriage....get a divorce or something. 1 

~ Date Night by Jodi Linton
At first I was annoyed with Jack, but then he really made it up to his wife. This was super cute. What a fun date night!! 5

~ Cupcakes & Macarons by Bethany Lopez
This was really sweet, but boring at the same time. 3

~ Vitamin D by Kayti McGee
This one had me laughing. I loved it. 5

~ Falling Fast with You by S. Moose
Uggggggghhhhhhhhh I was not happy with the ending AT all. F that guy!! I wasn't amused with the ending. Maybe if there was more I would've came around but nope. 1

~ Breaking the Rules by Dani René
Wasn't amused with this one either. He was a total asshat and she deserves better. 1

~ Cocktail by Lauren Smith
This was cute. I liked Aubree. I just wanted her to be happy. I grew to like Matthew a lot too 4

~ It’s Always Been You by Jen Talty
Another one that was cute and sweet, but boring. 3


OVERALL
I enjoyed this overall. It was a cute one for the season of lovvvveeee. It was a mix bag of different stories. Not all loves are the same and it was fun to see this reflected here. Old love, new love, multiple loves. There are some great ones and some meh ones. But yes, overall, this was really good. *does math* I'll stamp this with 3 stars.

  1. I see a lot of really high ratings but some pretty low ones too. It is so hard to find a book of short stories where each of the stories work well. Great review!

  2. Oh no. It looked cute and promising but I saw way too many one star reviews in there. That makes me sad.
