Cupid Has a Heart-On (The Holidays Series, Book #2) by Tara Sivec
BXTCHES Gotta Warn: Cupid Has a Heart-On picks up a little after where The Stocking Was Hung left off. So, before you even wonder or ask. . .YES, you should read The Stocking Was Hung prior to the Valentine’s beauty. Trust a BXTCH when I say, you’re going to want to read book #1 first. Forget the normal “that book lays down the foundation to the story”, NO, the reason is because it is fucking funny and everyone needs a laugh. Since this book is short and sweet, I thought it would be a brilliant idea for this review to be as well.
Cupid Has a Heart-On is told through the POV’s of both Noel and Sam.
Cupid picks up about 5 weeks after the last page of Stocking was read. Noel is living with her parents, jobless, and not really sure if she is engaged to Sam or not. I’m sure you remember Sam dropping down to one knee on Christmas Eve and slipping his mother’s ring on Noel’s finger, but, that was as her fake ex-boyfriend. And since there has been no re-engagement, nor has Sam asked for the ring back, Noel is not sure if the fake engagement was the real engagement and she’s too much of a pussy to just ask.
Sam is dying for Noel to move in with him and is determined for her to say yes, so he continues to ask, over and over and over. And when one’s mother is asking for the location of her crotchless panties, one would think that’s reason enough to get the hell out of the ‘rents house, well, one would be wrong. Noel doesn’t want Sam to have to support her and without employment, that’s what would be happening.
Of course, in the world of the Holidays, nothing is quite as simple. Noel and Sam may be on the same page, but they’re reading from two separate books. Bev is constantly trying to start a fire between the sheets with Reggie (see the crotchless panties issue), Aunt Bobbie has found love with Tindr and we get to meet the BFF’s of Noel and Sam (Scheva and Alex) who fall into the same bed and have crazy, monkey sex. So, things may not be simple in the Holiday household, but it does seem that they are normal. Oh, and Nicholas has himself a new baby and may or may not be counting down the days until he can finally sink himself into Nirvana once again.
What kind of book would this be if Sam and Noel weren’t trying to climb up each other at every turn? This is weird for me because the sex here is most certainly hot, but only when you’re not too busy laughing your panties off. There’s a nipple piercing gone rogue, mom’s crotchless panties make a reappearance at a very inopportune time, and with Bev encouraging Noel to take Sam’s deep dick every chance she gets, you would think toe curling would be non-existent. But no worries, Sam brings it and you will not leave disappointed.
I fucking love Tara Sivec. I know, those are the words of a true intellect, but that’s the best way that I can think of to express my feelings for this author. This book is a very quick and funny, funny, funny. . .fucking funny read. You can easily finish it in one sitting. I cannot wait to see what else the family has in store. And. . .our favorite BFF’s are back for a bit of a cameo.
Please for the love of stray strippers and sex toys everywhere, let there be more fun from this family.
Whenever you watch a super scary movie, do you need to watch something light and funny after, you know, just as a form of protection? No? Surely, that’s not just me, but anyway, that’s how I feel about Tara Sivec books. If a book drains me emotionally and I need an escape with lots of laughs, I turn to Tara Sivec, she is my literary comedienne. On a side note. . .Bev is who I aspire to be when I get a bit older, I should probably go ahead and warn the hubs.
