Queen of Tarts Review of
Trapped By Cupid
Melt My Heart Anthology
by Nicole Flockton
I adore anthologies! Sometimes I just don’t have time to read a full length novel but I NEED to read- so short stories are my solution. The new Melt My Heart collection from Crimson Press is like a box of chocolates, it has four treats that are delicious fun.
I especially loved reading Nicole Flockton’s contribution Trapped By Cupid. And it wasn’t just because it gave me a chance to revisit the the hospital that she’s used to bring a few couples together in previous stories but also because I enjoy her sweet and saucy writing style. 😉
The heroine Lisa is working Valentine’s Day at the ER instead of watching Love Actually and Notting Hill alone on her couch. I adored her immediately. She has great picks in movies and her inner monologue about the hot doctor she has a crush on made me crack up.
Doctor Noah Collin’s, aka #sexydoc in Lisa’s head, is a talented ER doctor and the son of a famous surgeon. I was impressed that even though this was a novella Ms. Flockton was able to make me empathize with the responsibilities and pressure he faces and see under the surface. I wanted to drag him home to watch Notting Hill on my couch!
Some of my fav lines….
♥ She had hoped Cupid might decide this year was her year, but it looked like he was ignoring her again.
♥ “I only got into the damn thing because I knew you were in it. I always take the stairs.”
I loved Lisa and Noah’s Valentine’s Day adventure in Trapped By Cupid. I wouldn’t say no to a longer story with them but I felt that the novella gave me the perfect recipe of sexy, sweet fun. I definitely recommend you pick up the Melt My Heart anthology and enjoy the treats.
