Blurb: After breaking up with his partner, English professor Dr. Derek Chandler feels like a failure who will never win at romance. His aloof colleague, Dr. Macon Pinney, disagrees and pens an anonymous note of encouragement to Derek, which he signs “Cupid.” Thus begins an exchange of correspondence, a courtship through words where the two men find out they have a great deal in common. Meanwhile, Derek reaches out to Macon, not knowing Macon is his anonymous pen pal. Derek reveals through his letters that someone close by has piqued his interest. Could he mean Macon—or has Macon missed his opportunity and lost Derek to another man?
Perhaps the time has come for Cupid to put in an appearance, and when better to do so than Valentine’s Day?

Review: Macon hadn’t meant to listen in, but when he heard Derek talk about his breakup, he felt that he should help the man. Playing cupid, he started with a sweet letter of encouragement and it has taken on pretty well. He just hadn’t expected for Derek to answer.
This is a very enjoyable little story about two very sexy guys finding love, with cupid’s hep of course. I think Ari has given us a pretty good book for this special holiday. Valentine’s day is not far away so this little story just fit pretty good. I haven’t read many stories around this day, so it was a nice surprise. I loved how Macon is so damn shy, but he stepped out of his comfort zone to help another, and got exactly what he needed also. It is a slow burn romance that ended perfectly.
Although I do have to say these two and their language was a blast, but I am still not going to read Shakespeare any time soon. It is a very sweet story and I got a kick out of our cutie pies. It is a bit cheesy but perfect all in all. I had a lot of fun reading this and look forward to reading many more stories by this amazing author.
