Zoey is a woman totally comfortable with her attraction to other women. Zoey knows that she and Morrie McKinloch are perfect for each other. Not only is the chemistry explosive, Morrie is a ton of fun to be around. If only Zoey can convince Morrie that being a lesbian isn’t the end of the world.

Morrie cannot forget the hot New Year’s Eve sex she had with Zoey Statham. She never expected to be attracted to another woman. How can she tell her mother that her only daughter is swearing off the fairytale prince in favor of the princess?

When Morrie’s friends set her up with a local guy, she figures this is her chance at normal. Too bad a handsome man isn’t incentive enough to keep Morrie out of Zoey’s bed. No matter how much Morrie tries to be what her family wants, her heart already knows where she belongs.

Sometimes life can change in an instant. Will Zoe and Morrie be ready for it when it happens to them?

Morrie’s character development was well done. The plot gave her plenty of time to reveal her personality before it began showing how she was evolving. So much time was spent exploring the kind of person she was that all of the changes she went through unfolded smoothly. They suited her backstory and current circumstances perfectly.

It took me a while to figure out how all of the characters knew one another. There were quite a few of them, and the connections between them weren’t always clear. I would have had a much easier time settling into the plot if I’d either had fewer characters to get to know or if they’d been written into something that was full length instead of a short story.

The chemistry between Morrie and Zoey was sizzling hot. I liked the fact that they’d been friends for a long time before the events in this story began because it gave them such a rich history to draw on in their interactions. This was a smart choice for these characters. As soon as I met them, I started rooting for them to end up together. I was so interesting in seeing what would happen that I read the whole book in one sitting.

Cupid, Mardi Gras, & Auld Lang Syne was a fun read. It’s a good choice for anyone who likes a little drama in their erotica.
