Reviews for Cupid's Apprentence:
" Love the aspect of Cupid in the story. Hope you plan on making it a series. It would be very entertaining. Laura is very down to earth and you can identify with her and her insecurities. While Flynn seems larger then life but just a easy to identify with."

" I would recommend this short story to anyone, it made me laugh & I enjoyed the book. I would purchase another book by Elysa Hendricks."

"Fun, easy read. The Cupid "People" were adorable and the characters were very likable. I loved the situations the "Cupid People" put the Hero and heroine in - and how they managed. Enjoyable."

" Another great book by Elysa Hendricks. I loved this story and look forward to reading more by this author especially those in the Council Falls series."
