The Trouble with Playing Cupid by Tamara Philip

One New Year’s Eve, shy singer, December Brown drunkenly texts her talk show host pal, Trace Randall, about her long time crush on the aloof actor, Tom Elmswood. Thinking the two celebrities would make a cute couple, he unwisely decides to play matchmaker… in front of a live studio audience.

Things start to go downhill when Tom admits he’s never even heard of December before. Now what seemed like a sure fire hit quickly becomes a flop. Will these two lonely hearts ever make a love connection or has this cupid’s arrow missed its mark?

Loved It!

I laughed and cried along with the characters. I fell in love with the story line and the Characters. I Love Tom! He was the most down to earth man with a heart of Gold! December AKA Dee banter and sweet talk had me on a emotional roller coaster. I would love to have friends like Clarissa and Terrence. This book (genre) is a book that I have never read. Tamara wove magic when writing this and also has made me become a fan of Romantic Comedies. Awesome!!!

The danger of drunken texts

A very well written sweet story. I especially liked how the celebrities came across as real people who were lucky enough to have jobs doing something that made them happy (and pays well!). It could have used a little more conflict – a backstabbing ex, some racist relatives, a kidnapping, but on the other hand, it’s nice when people just get along without a lot of unnecessary drama. Plus, you can see where conflict might come up in the next book.

Note: I didn’t know bw/wm was a thing so now I’m intrigued! In any case the woman is clearly described as a light skinned black (or possibly biracial) woman. Think Halle Berry, not Lupita Nyong’o. To the author, if the skin tone of the cover model is the worst thing somebody can find to say about your work then well done, madam! Well done!
