Alexander Woodroe has it all. Charm. Sex appeal. Wealth. Fame. A starring role as Cupid on TV’s biggest show, God of the Gates. But the showrunners have wrecked his character, he’s dogged by old demons, and his post-show future remains uncertain. When all that reckless emotion explodes into a bar fight, the tabloids and public agree: his star is falling.
Enter Lauren Clegg, the former ER therapist hired to keep him in line. Compared to her previous work, watching over handsome but impulsive Alex shouldn’t be especially difficult. But the more time they spend together, the harder it gets to keep her professional remove and her heart intact, especially when she discovers the reasons behind his recklessness…not to mention his Cupid fanfiction habit.
When another scandal lands Alex in major hot water and costs Lauren her job, she’ll have to choose between protecting him and offering him what he really wants—her. But he’s determined to keep his improbably short, impossibly stubborn, and extremely endearing minder in his life any way he can. And on a road trip up the California coast together, he intends to show her exactly what a falling star will do to catch the woman he loves: anything at all.

This book was no Spoiler Alert, but it was cute and funny.
I had a decent idea of who Alex was from Spoiler Alert, but this book really helped me to see how sparkly and charming he was. I never wanted him to be off page because he was so good and funny and energetic. Also, every time pegging was brought up, I was left cackling.
I didn’t love the whole bird-appearance thing. I know there was a redeemable, “cute” reason for it, but I still didn’t love it. Kinda cringe to me.
To be honest, I was pretty bored through most of this book. It didn’t feel like anything new or unique. Alex was the only reason I kept pushing on. I just wanted to be around him all the time, but the story was no super interesting.
Overall, this was a good read, but not Dade’s best. A nice MMC that motivated me through, but otherwise a bit lifeless. He’s the main reason this book gets a 3.5 stars.
