Love on Cue by Catherine Hapka

Reader reviewed by ReggieWrites

Another hilarious read from the Simon Pulse RoCom series!

Love on Cue
is great for those who like light comedy and easy romance but
personally, I don't think it's all that great. To me, Maggie seemed WAY
too desperate to be Derek's girlfriend. And the way she gets all
tongue-tied around Derek got old. It happens way to commonly in books.
I mean seriously!? In Love on Cue,
she can't even form a coherent sentence. In real life, I don't think
that would happen or if it does, then it wouldn't be common. I couldn't
help but grow annoyed and irritated with Maggie.

Derek.
He was VERY unrealistic. He was TOO perfect. In the book, he was
portrayed as someone who could do no wrong. He was adept and proficient
in EVERYTHING. I was just really unimpressed with his character.

It was random. I think that Hapka
just threw in random scenarios so that Maggie would always find herself
in an awkward position. They just didn't fit in with the book. There
wasn't any connection at all.

Errors. Has anyone noticed that on the back of the book it says 'Daniel' and not 'Derek'? Call me a perfectionist but I hate mistakes like these. It's one of my pet peeves.

The only thing that really stood out to me in this book was, unexpectedly,
Calla. She was the only character that constrained me to finish the
book. Calla's issue was that she was a little overweight. But she was
able to accept it and, eventually, joke about it.

The Bottom Line: I found Love on Cue to be disappointing but nevertheless funny. Don't stop reading Catherine Hapka though. Her book 'Twelve Dates of Christmas' is BETTER than this. I'll follow up with a review. But for now, C-
:-)
