Natalie McCleary didn’t believe in love at first sight until she got struck with cupid’s arrow when she spies a hot & sexy man in her path. Being half naked at the time she saw him just fueled her imagination even more. But for practical Natalie, this whole love at first sight thing has left her reeling. She can’t be in love with a virtual stranger…can she?

For ex-Navy Seal Dade Vegas, all he wanted to do was keep a promise to a military friend but spying Natalie, wet and delicious looking stopped him in his tracks. Can Dade and Natalie figure out their hearts even as love weaves its magic around them?

Lori Wilde is a new to me author and her introduction into Cupid, Texas with LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT was an interesting premise. A town where love at first sight happens. I don’t think I ever read a series or book about that sort of thing before. Unfortunately a few things kept me from fully enjoying the book. One was the stilted dialogue at times between characters. While reading LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT, the characters talked like they were very awkward between each other; that kind of through me out of the story at times. The other thing that had me scratching my head was the Red mystery and it just did not fit within the story in my opinion. I wondered why t he author felt she needed to put this in the story when it could have done better without it. The author does a good job in creating an interesting town and the whole ‘love at first sight’ aspect was intriguing. The romance between Dade and Natalie is sweet and believable. The writing could have done with a bit more tightening but overall the story moved nicely to the ending which wrapped up a few things with a big red bow so to speak.

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT is an interesting premise into a new series by Lori Wilde and though it had a few issues I felt could have been deleted or otherwise fixed to make the story flow better, the book overall charmed me. I really enjoyed seeing the town and meeting all the characters there. It was a fast, easy read for me and one that left me looking to see more from Cupid, Texas series. If you enjoy the whole ‘love at first sight’ plot with some interesting characters, then you might enjoy this introduction into Cupid, Texas. I look forward to seeing where this author takes this series in the future.
