Book 1: Once Upon a Bite by Kimberly Raye
Shay Briggs runs her own business specializing in beauty.
Matt Keller has recently moved to town escaping his past,
living as a werewolf and looking for his mate. Shay sees a
picture of Matt naked and his hair long. Now she's willing
to exchange her body for the secrets to Matt's hair
growth. Now Matt learns that he is turning into a vampire
as well. He also knows that Shay is his mate, but can she
except who he is?
This story was really fast-paced. The characters came
alive on every page. Shay at first hated Valentines Day
and ended up on kissmyasscupid.com. But something about
Matt Keller has her rethinking her position on the
holiday. Kimberly Raye is a terrific storyteller and has
you believing in the supernatural.
Book 2: My What a Big...You Have by Leslie Kelly
Scarlett Templeton is a children's writer, but she doesn't
write the typical happily ever after stories. She herself
also ends up on kissmyasscupid.com with her opinions of
Valentine's Day as well. But when she wrecks in the bayou
and ends up somewhere over the rainbow with Hunter
Thibodaux she begins to wonder if this holiday is a way for
markets to make money or if there really is a cupid.
Leslie Kelly has told a wonderful story with these two
characters. Scarlett is a very forward woman and she knows
what she wants. And she wants Hunter. Hunter is a strong
character himself. He is looking for his brother and
rescues Scarlett and falls in love. He takes Scarlett over
the rainbow. There isn't too much description of where
they are, but what little Kelly has in the story is
magical, it really shows you where they are-over the
Book 3: Sexily Ever After by Rhonda Nelson
Juliet Swan has always been the ugly duckling. Or so she
thinks she is. Her two sisters have blond hair and very
proud features, while she has dark hair and barely wares
makeup. She gets an assignment and gets to work closely
with Gareth Harper who recently saw Juliet on
kissmyasscupid.com expressing her thoughts on Valentine's
Day. Which he agrees, cupid has never done him any favors
on this day as well. But the chemistry sparks instantly
between the two.
This was my favorite out of the three stories. Rhonda
Nelson is a wonderful storyteller, she weaves the scenes
together perfectly and the plot is easy to follow. I
love "makeover" stories. Juliet goes from being the ugly
duckling to being beautiful and all it took was a haircut,
some makeup and a new wardrobe, but the most important
aspect of making her beautiful was finding love with
All three of these books connect, the heroines names are
fanciful, they all are out of luck on the love game and end
up on the same website hating Valentine's Day. Well, that
is until they find love themselves. It's all about a
greater power than they hold. It truly is a great and
These Valentine's Day stories have Blazingly happy
