My review of Valentine Surprise by Jennifer Conner

About the book:

For Cecilia, Valentine’s Day stands as a glaring remind of what she is-alone and in love with her best friend’s brother, Lee.

When Lee asks Cecilia for computer help with signing up for an on-line dating service, will this be her chance to get him out of her head and her heart for good?

But, does Cupid have his own Valentine surprise in store for this couple?

My review:

What a romantic read! I liked how it had a "true love" theme versus the story being based on attraction alone. It's true that best friends can make the best long term mates, and I loved that Lee finally decided he was ready to stop playing around and get serious about relationships. Truly satisfying relationships are where people connect on many levels, and this story showed that well. It also showed that a person's dream mate may be something other than what was originally thought, as Cee Cee was nothing like the women Lee thought he loved to date, but she was perfect for him.

Other than a few minor cuss words, the story was pretty clean and I found it inspiring even though it wasn't an inspirational story. I normally don't like short stories or novellas very much as it is hard to feel connected to characters that you barely get to know and then the story ends. But this author did a great job pulling me in, making me care, and satisfying me at the end.

Valentine Surprise was published by Books to Go Now and released in January 2012.

Conner gives me the hint of Cecilia Ahern`s writing, but also it`s nice to read.
