Love At First Sight-Lori Wilde

Love At First Sight

In Cupid, Texas Natalie McCleary owns and runs Cupid’s Rest bed and breakfast. Because of a plane crash that left her alive and left her parents dead, Natalie has issues caused by survival guilt and fear of risks.

Former Navy SEAL, Dade Vega has childhood issues brought on by addict parents including a mom who overdosed and being in the foster care system. He comes to Cupid seeking his missing best friend and fellow foster brother Red. When he and Natalie see each other for the first time, both feel the intense attraction, but neither believes in love especially at first sight even in a town called Cupid.

The first Cupid romance is an entertaining contemporary starring two people singing the refrain from I’m Not In Love (10Cc) in a town in which the prime request for residency is a belief in love at first sight. Overall the romance is fun as the deniers recognize their feelings though at times it is too cute while the mystery of Red adds a nice supporting sub-plot.
