Jed Gentry is doing just fine, thank you very much, running his tattoo studio in Austin, Texas. So what if people think he’s a bit on the surly side? He’s been burned by his ex who sticks around to torture him and he lives with a family heartache that he’d rather not talk about. But he’s got a thriving business, his dream car, and good friends. Not much to complicate things. At least, not until she walked in . . .
Kyle O’Neill has had it with being the sheltered daddy’s girl at the family accounting firm and is ready to spread her wings and fly on her own for the first time. Unfortunately, it seems she’s about to fall flat on her face when her first and only client is—gulp—a tattoo artist! Her country club upbringing certainly hasn’t prepared her for this place or the sizzling attraction her traitorous body feels for the grumpy owner.
But there is a Divine conspiracy at work here pushing these two together. And they are hell bent on bucking the Heavenly plan all the way. Luckily, their angel is a true believer and pulls every trick he knows from under his halo to make this a match made in Heaven.
Not having read any other books by Shauna Allen, I didn’t know what to expect, but I enjoyed the story. Being the first in The Cupid Chronicles we are just meeting the characters, so it will be interesting to see how Allen has them grow.
At times I was thrown off by the abrupt changes in characters, but this could just be due to how it was formulated for the eReader. The book, or a different version for eReader may have more apparent breaks.
Having friends who are tattoo artists, I would have enjoyed if Allen had wrote more about the various people who come into the shop, and their tattoos. There is a bit, but I would have liked more. I think she could have had fun writing some of the characters.
There really isn’t a lot of sex scenes in the book, so if this is something that you were hoping for, just a heads up. And while Allen wrote Jed and Kyle well, my favorite scenes were when they were together; either at the country club or when they went up to the lake, but there weren’t a lot of these scenes.
I really enjoyed the angels and their AA meetings. They made for some great comic relief, and they are so innocent in the ways they try to get their charges to come together.
If you are looking for a sweet romance, this may be just your thing.
