Cupid needs to be shot with one of his own arrows.

Chelsea hates Valentine’s Day. She hates the pink and red hearts hung all over town, the kissy faces everyone makes, and the cringe-worthy cards. The one thing she actually loved, her dog Princess, is happy in a new home, and Chelsea has no one to celebrate with. Not that she would. The whole holiday is a marketing ploy to get people to spend money.

Tennyson Barber is happy. He’s got a brand new medical practice and the company of beautiful women whenever he wants it. Why then, is his inner daddy so fascinated with Chelsea Grant? She’s coming off a bad marriage and has a whole mess of problems he should avoid. Tennyson is nobody’s knight in shining armor, but he wants to slay Chelsea’s dragons anyway.

Grab a huge drink, disconnect your brain and relax back and just enjoy the fun and spicy ride this book offers. I enjoyed the very faint edge of paranormal aspect to the story – a few rather interesting Guardian angels had small parts to play in the story – but overall I found this contemporary romance to be fun and rather naughty in a very good way.

Tennyson is trying hard to get his medical business up and running, and while Chelsea has caught his eye, he’s not interested in dating anyone local in case things turn sour and his enjoyment of bedroom games became public knowledge. Chelsea isn’t looking for an intimate partner either, with her ex-husband cleaning her out and discovering a few days later that she’s pregnant. Chelsea is broke and struggling to find work, a lot more interested in putting food on her table than running around dating the new guy. But fate – and a determined Guardian Angel – shows then both just how well suited they are in every way.

I was really pleased the author gave quite a bit of the background and character details in the start of the story. I can see it would have been easy to just have Chelsea and Tennyson bump into each other and fall into insta-lust, but I really feel the story is stronger and more believable for the slower pace in the beginning. While I felt the BDSM elements to the story could have been a little more subtly woven into the start, I found this aspect to the story both tasteful and not too over the top.

My favourite part of the story was hands down the interactions of the characters and the lovely feeling of a small town that permutated through the story. While there was quite the hint of kink that I found surprising at times overall these were interesting, fairly normal people I could relate to and feel believable. Tennyson and Chelsea’s romance also was logical and captured my interest from the start. All the characters – but Tennyson and Chelsea in particular – were well written, layered and for me, personally, really made this story exceptional.

With a deliciously slow pace, exceptional characters that I adored and some really steamy BDSM sex this was a great read and a story I know I’ll enjoy again in the future.
