Exactly Like You by Lori Sizemore @lorisizemore #Review

An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life.

Former social worker Roxie Fisher believes she’s cursed to never find happiness and an invitation to Cupid’s Café isn’t going to change her situation. All the same, against her better judgment, she gives it a try. What else does she have to lose?

After the death of his wife, accountant-turned-firefighter Aidan Craig, can’t stop taking ridiculous risks and never turns down a dare. So an invitation to Cupid’s Café is an offer he can’t refuse. What he doesn’t expect is to meet the social worker who helped him through the darkest days of his life. Now she’s the one struggling, and he’s compelled to help.

The two experience an immediate attraction, but Aidan swore to never become involved in another relationship, and Roxie can’t imagine daredevil Aidan being interested in a boring, cat-rescuer like her.

Can Roxie find the simple joy of taking a risk? Is Aidan willing to risk his heart? Or will they both lose out on a chance at true love?

I have to say that I loved the mysterious way that Roxie is invited to Cupid's Café it really is a lovely touch. A chance meeting there sends Roxie on quite a journey to finding herself again. With both herself and Aidan having had difficult pasts that have left them in a vulnerable place.

There are a few themes in this story including friendship, romance, and grief and they are all packaged together in a sweet and entertaining story. It's a story about taking a leap of faith and hopefully getting your own happy ever after. Both characters were very likeable and I loved their interactions and how they slowly but surely began to heal. The storyline isn't all fluffy and light as depression is a central theme but it is well balanced with the romantic side and just offers a deeper edge to the story.

One thing I have to mention is that I would love to know more about Cupid's Café and it would be great to see more of a back story in regards to the Café. So hopefully in the second book in the series the reader may get to know a little bit more.

Four stars from me!

With thanks to Lori Sizemore for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
