After breaking up with his partner, English professor Dr. Derek Chandler feels like a failure who will never win at romance. His aloof colleague, Dr. Macon Pinney, disagrees and pens an anonymous note of encouragement to Derek, which he signs “Cupid.” Thus begins an exchange of correspondence, a courtship through words where the two men find out they have a great deal in common. Meanwhile, Derek reaches out to Macon, not knowing Macon is his anonymous pen pal. Derek reveals through his letters that someone close by has piqued his interest. Could he mean Macon—or has Macon missed his opportunity and lost Derek to another man?

Perhaps the time has come for Cupid to put in an appearance, and when better to do so than Valentine’s Day?

This is an absolutely adorable Valentine’s Day story. A lot of times I’m not a fan of an overly fluffy story so I admit to being skeptical about this one when it caught my eye. Valentine’s Day is synonymous with overly sweet and ridiculously romantic. Well, this one was very sweet and the romance ALMOST tipped the scale.

I found the whole idea of a colleague genuinely caring about another so much he tries to lift him up by pretending to be cupid and writing him a “Buck up you’re a hell of a guy,” letter. It of course escalates into a lovely love story. Macon is an introvert. Derek thinks he’s lost his passion. Together they give each other what they need. Brilliant minds and huge hearts!

The epilogue was pure perfection and exactly what I hoped for, for the ending to this romantic story. If you’re looking for a very literary witty, equally romantic story this is perfect for you.
