Cute, fluffy and a quick read. Kate Bradshaw is a love advice columnist in need of some inspiration after her divorce. Mike Cameron is a movie special effects animator looking to add more to his life. The two definitely make some sparks and Ortolon does a good job in working through Kate's fears and issues.
Kate Bradshaw's popular "Dear Cupid" Web advice column helps the hapless and hopeless find true love. But in the aftermath of her painful divorce, Kate's advice turns too bitter for her boss's taste. To retain her job and regain her zest for romance, Kate leaves her native Texas hill country for a business trip to L.A., where she practices her flirting technique on the first attractive man she sees, movie special-effects man Mike Cameron. Kate confidently expects that Mike will disappear from her life after their brief meeting. Instead, he falls in love with her. Sensing Kate's wariness of relationships, but desperate to be part of her life, Mike hires her to turn him, his clothes and his home into marriage material. His decision to withhold the identity of the wife he has in mind keeps the two at comic cross-purposes. Even after they give in to their attraction, Mike must win acceptance from Kate's son, Dylan, and convince her that forever is not a dirty word.
Okay but the characterizations are a little bit to extreme.
Although she isn't a fan of Happily Ever After, Kate Bradshaw is stuck writing a Dear Cupid column. Julie Ortolon is witty and laugh-out-loud funny.
Kate is Dear Cupid, but doesn't want a man. Michael is an animator and falls in love at first sight with Kate -- but how will he win her over? A good fun read.

"If she's going to keep her job, she needs a man to remind her that romance can be fun . . .someone with whom she can polish her rusty firting skills . . . and absolutely nothing more."
"He's a little too attached to his shabby bachelor pad counch and rumpled Hawaiian shirts . . . and counting on Kate to turn him into husband material -- but Kate doesn't know this is just Michael's plan to convince her to give love a second chance."
Once upon a time, there was a redhead named Kate Bradshaw who naively thought Happily Ever After was just a heartbeat away. One kid, one divorce, and a stack of bills later, Kate isn't necessarily a candidate for Man-Haters Anonymous, but she's not winning any points with the love-struck readers of her Dear Cupid advice column either. If she's going to keep her job, she needs a man to remind her that romance can be fun. Someone attractive. Someone easygoing. Someone with whom she can polish her rusty flirting skills-- and absolutely nothing more. Enter Michael Cameron...
One might think a drop-dead handsome movie animator would have no problem marrying himself off. As Kate soon discovers, one would be sorely mistaken. A little too attached to his shabby bachelor pad couch and rumpled Hawaiian shirts, Michael is counting on Kate to turn him into husband material and find him a wife. But little does Kate know that this is just Michael's plan to convince her to give love a second chance and to look for the future Mrs. Cameron in the most obvious place of all: the mirror...
