REVIEW : Letters from Cupid by Ari McKay
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?
First Edition published by Torquere Press, 2015.
Letters from Cupid by Ari McKay
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is cute.
I liked the idea of the story, but the letters was kinda old fashioned?
I understand they're geeks but still...
The 'stalking' games between the two MCs was entertaining, especially when one of them waiting for the next letter. It's like cat and mouse play.
I just wish that the letters not too 'text book' , I'd enjoyed it more.
More thoughts to come...
