Piotr, a cupid, is tired of watching everyone else get their happy ever after’s. He doesn’t think there is a someone for him, it doesn’t seem to be in the cards. Nobody wants him, he’s so different, so he pushes everyone away with his mean personality. In another story, he’d be the one saying “bah, humbug”. He’s decided that he’s going to leave the Cupid ranks. But darn it, his boss reminds him that he has to give a month’s notice. She ships him off to help Santa and the elves. Piotr gets assigned to help Danny.
Danny makes magical wooden ponies. Danny is kind and caring, the opposite of Piotr. And Danny doesn’t see Piotr as different, he sees him as being hot. And tries to act like his friend, making sure that Piotr has some fun. This is the beginning the change in Piotr.
I love both Piotr and Danny as well as Piotr’s boss Marseille. The plot was well done, and the world built here is fun and imaginative. This is just a fun story to read.
This was so cute! Piotr was introduced near the end of the previous book and man, was he ever a grouch! In The Cupids Do Christmas you really get to know Piotr and, I have to say, I found him a little surprising. At the beginning of the book I found myself singing songs from How the Grinch Stole Christmas as I read through Piotr’s decision to quit working for the cupids and his utter disgust at being seconded to the elves to help with Christmas preparations. The comparison between him and the Grinch was…surprisingly accurate for a while. :D As the story progresses, you get to see another side of Piotr and start to understand just why he acts the way he does. This is, of course, helped along by Danny who pretty much has him figured out from the beginning and refuses to be intimidated in any way by the man most others go out of their way to avoid.
The story itself was just sweet and had the right amount of Christmas to officially start off my holiday reading list for the year. I really enjoyed Danny and Piotr together and seeing Piotr do whatever was necessary to help the other man, even at the cost of some ungodly amount of teasing from the other cupids, made me smile. Though this is the second book in the series, you could probably read this one without any knowledge of the first story and be perfectly fine though I liked that I got to see a bit of Piotr previously and it was nice getting a glimpse of the boys from before also.
If you’re looking for a sweet story to start off your holiday reading, I’d recommend giving this one a look.
Do you remember Snake (real name Piotr), the naughty Cupid from Callum and The Cupids? Well, he gets his own story here. Piotr is the epitome of grumpiness, and he is done with being Cupid. But before he can quit his job, he has to sit out his contract for another month. He is assigned to Danny, the cute little elf, which makes the best wooden horses ever. Piotr is no match for sunny, vibrant Danny, and soon he falls into the Christmas spirit and in love with Danny.
A delightful, funny and sweet story of opposites attracts with a bit of Christmas and a bit of Magic.
This story is the sequel to Callum and The Cupids, and it can be read as a stand-alone. However, I recommended reading this story first as you will enjoy it so much more.
Piotr is disillusioned and lonely, he has built a reputation for being mean and has isolated himself. He is looking for a fresh start and he finds one, just not in the way that he thinks. He comes to realize that not everyone will hurt him and that Danny is someone that could really be his friend. I enjoyed getting to know his soft and loving side in story and how beautifully he fit with Danny.
