Rhymes with Cupid and is about a girl named Elyse who, after a terrible heartbreak last Valentine’s day, has sworn off dating as well as celebrating the February 14th holiday. Both things are a bit of a problem, though, since a) she works at a gift & stationery store, surrounded by tacky, sparkly cards and annoying singing Cupid dolls and b) she ends up meeting this guy named Patrick who works in the same mall and is her new neighbor and her driving instructor and is really cute and incredibly charming… which, you know, might be okay except for the whole ‘sworn off dating’ thing and the fact that he seems to be into her best friend.
It's a little bit too late or too early depending on how you look at things to read a Valentine's Day story, but that is okay! This was a cute story that I enjoyed even though there is no snow on the ground. Actually, it's a million degrees so this book helped me keep cool! The author created a scenario that could easily happen to teens/young adults so it was relateable and none of the characters were annoying! Dina was a sweetheart, everyone should have her as a best friend. And Patrick is SO cute and the perfect boyfriend. Check this story out if you are looking for a quirky romance!
