Cupid has been challenged to update – instead of the trusty bow and arrow, he has to bring a couple together using modern means. Choosing two victims - Chloe Phillips who presently heads a creative investment firm, and AJ Lockhart who has been sent in effectively to audit the firm at the behest of the Board – Cupid sets out to meet the challenge. Chloe is someone for whom people are at least as important as numbers, in selecting the ideas which her firm should back. She had made some mistakes early on, but as AJ finds, she is now finding her feet in the company. Or so it seems until e-Cupid and Cupid.com arrive with inventor E. Rose, and the electronic cupid sends events spiralling out of control. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but after viewing e-Cupid, Chloe’s number one inventor is writing her appalling poetry instead of working on his product, and her best friend’s fantasy man seems fixated on her too. Chloe might have believed that AJ was her True Love, but e-Cupid seems to have developed more than a few bugs.
How Chloe and AJ find their feet with one another is the essence of the tale, set against their business relationship, budding trust in each other, and the somewhat insidious matter Chloe’s brother overseeing developments with a less than friendly eye. AJ and Chloe’s differing abilities partner well together in business, and their chemistry begins to zing in their private life.
A consistently amusing tale that endeavours to teach an old Cupid new tricks, only to discover perhaps it is better to go with the system that works.
