Stops here 3/28

Welcome to The Bookish Babe's stop on the A Little Bit Cupid Blog Tour! The tour is being hosted by Entangled Publishing. My stop includes a review and a Top Ten post with author Jennifer Shirk.

A Little Bit CupidGenre: Adult Contemporary Romance

Finding love should be easy, but wedding photographer Phoebe Ward knows better. When Cupid shows up on a crazy mission to help her —and save the world in the process—Phoebe realizes love might be even more complicated than she thought. Even with Cupid showing her Mr. Right , she can’t stop thinking about his best friend, Mr. Wrong.

Cal Crawford has never had time for love, but now he’s falling for Phoebe. Which means it’s got to be just plain wrong to set her up with his best friend, right? But even though seeing Phoebe with someone else will break his heart, he can’t walk away from her.

Phoebe can’t afford to choose the wrong guy with the fate of the world at stake. But maybe Cupid has it wrong. Maybe she has to rely just a little bit on Cupid, and a whole lot more on her heart.

A Little Bit Cupid was a sweet, bite-sized story about finding true love.

This book was very short, and I read it in less than an hour. And I have to say, it made my wait at the Doctor's office much more bearable. I was smiling the entire time I read, and giggling more than a few times.

Since A Little Bit Cupid is so short, I really feel like I can't say a lot, or anything, without basically telling exactly what happens. But I can say that it was fun, charming, and well-written. I adored Cosmo E. Cupid III, he was a cigar smoking son of the original Cupid, and how cute is that?! Phoebe was an easy character to like as well, and I enjoyed the banter between her and Cal. I always love to see characters fall for the person the weren't actually looking for. Too cute!

If your liking for a sweet way to pass a bit of time, A Little Bit Cupid is a sure bet.

Favorite Quote:

  She laughed. "I'm sorry. I didn't mean it to come out that way. I just meant that you're..."
  "Hot?" He finished hopefully.
  She laughed again. "I was going to say special. But yes, you're cute, too. I'm glad we became friends."
  Special. Cute. Friends. He wished she'd just cut his testicles off and be done with it already. Depending on the next adjective she chose for him, he would either qualify as a card-carrying member of the Emasculated Men's Club or a Muppet. No wonder he'd avoided love for as long as he had.  ~eARC, 55%

 Top Ten with Jennifer Shirk 
Hi, all! Jennifer here!

In case you haven't heard, my latest romance novella A Little Bit Cupid centers around a woman named Phoebe who has to choose between two men: one, Cupid is saying is her soul mate (Adam) and another, who her heart is telling her is her soul mate (Cal).

Both men are very different. Cal is more your sexy/quiet type and Adam is more your nice guy-next-door type. Although I think they do have one thing in common: they're both smart "bookish" kind of men--meaning you'd definitely catch them with a book in their hands. :)

Since I'm here at The Bookish Babe, I thought it'd be fun to give my personal Top Ten List of Bookish Men for you all.

       Jennifer's Top Ten Bookish Men

1) Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones) in the "Indiana Jones" movies.
2) Noah Wyle (Flynn Carsen) in the "Librarian" movies.

3) James Spader (Daniel Jackson) in the original "Stargate" movie.

4) Michael Shanks (Daniel Jackson) in "Stargate SG-1"
5) Bobak Ferdowski (Nasa Flight Director for the Mars Rover )

(He's the real thing!!)
6) Russell Crowe (John Forbes Nash) in "A Beautiful Mind"
7)Sendhil Ramamurthy (Mohinder Suresh) in "Heroes.

8) Hugh Grant in "Knotting Hill"

9) Brad Cooper in "The Words"
10) Val Kilmer in Batman

I'm definitely seeing a trend in the glasses thing with all these bookish men. Very sexy. :)
Thanks so much for having me today!

I hope you enjoyed my list, and I also hope you get to check out my own bookish men in A Little Bit Cupid--only 99 cents at an e-tailer near you!

Who would make it on your list of Bookish Men?
