Can’t Hurry Love by M. Jules Aedin

Blurb:
Vincent is one unlucky bunny. After an indiscreet rendezvous with a sexy satyr in the supply closet at work, he’s put on probation and temporarily reassigned from the Easter Bunny Department to the Cupid Department. As his penance, he’s ordered to motivate one very sexy but surly cupid by the name of Charles Ross, who is effectively on strike.

Their first matchmaking assignment looks clear cut, an in-and-out (so to speak) task they can finish quickly so Vincent can prove he’s done his time and go back to stuffing Easter baskets. But when the plan goes wrong and Charlie ends up in a love coma, Vincent is put on trial for his slutty bunny ways! Now his only hope is for love to conquer all—including death—and come winging his way.

Review:

I knew from the great cover this would be a delightful and fun romp. Aedin has delivered another fabulous and whimsical story that is chock full of sexy myths and clever references. The great characters are combined with an interesting plot and sizzling sexual tension. A light hearted story that will make you smile, laugh, and wish myths were real, be sure to get this today. You won’t be disappointed.

Vincent is a myth assigned to the Easter Bunny Department of the Corporation, which gives him his bunny ears and cute white fluffy tail. Vincent is a bit of a slut but what’s a fun loving bunny to do? However his sexual antics with a randy satyr get Vincent put on probation and assigned to help a reluctant cupid, Charles. Charles is a matchmaker on strike, refusing to help lovers get together and Vincent must help Charles get back into the swing of his job.

The story is incredibly clever and very smartly written with numerous mythological references. This increases the level of entertainment to the story as readers can imagine myths as frat boy types, sex addicted twins, prissy receptionists, or even disinterested cupids. Every detail of the setting is used to affectively create a recognizable atmosphere but with mythological elements. Each character, comment, or setting detail is whimsical and rooted in an alternate reality where these creatures have day jobs, responsibilities, and even death. An example of the delightful nature of the narrative is here:

He passed the Greek houses on his way to the Cupid Department, grinning and winking when he saw Damon, the insatiable Satyr who had joined him for that now-infamous supply-closet rendezvous. Damon had one of the Nymphs on his lap and a beer in his hand, laughing at something Pan had just said. Those Greeks were incorrigible, every last one of them. They’d long ago corrupted the Romans to their ways, and by now the two departments were virtually indistinguishable in their philandering. Vincent adored them.
 

The antics don’t stop with the just setting, as Vincent must work with a recalcitrant cupid on strike. He struggles with his new assignment through mistakes, advice from Dionysus at a local bar, and finally makes a connection with Charles. The characters are well drawn, adorable, and very witty. The clever writing is shown well with the fully realized characters. They rely on stereotypes but with a lot of humor and light hearted sexual tension to help endear the men to the reader. There is no explicit sex but this isn’t a loss to the story at all. If anything, this helps carry the delicious chemistry between the two men even further.

The story is not perfect but it’s incredibly clever, unique, delightful, and ultimately there aren’t enough positive things I can say. You’ll definitely want to pick up this quick, thoroughly engaging story. Vincent’s sexy tail twitch will stay with you.

  1. Wow, Kassa, great review! I’ve been seeing this around but couldn’t quite wrap my mind around the Easter Bunny, but if you like it this much, I’m taking a chance on it!

    • I think you’ll like this one Val. The story doesn’t take itself too seriously and the few mythology references thrown in are pretty funny and clever. There is actually no explicit sex (shockingly!) but this is how comic porn can be fun.

    This book is in my immediate TBR pille (you know the one – 25 others are beside it) I have been meaning ti read it since I saw the summary and I think your review pushed it to the top of the pile. Great review. I hope I can be as eloquent.

    • Only 25? You’re doing really well! Last I looked the books in my TBR (eventually) folder was 720 and in my “To Be Read First” pile is 64. Oh and then the review pile and I keep buying books. Ugh.
      ANYWAY! This is a super cute and adorable quick story that I devoured in about a half hour. It’s really quick and fun so it shouldn’t take too much of your time and it’s definitely enjoyable to read.

        You misunderstood – the immediate TBR is only for books I promised to review several weeks ago. I don’t even want to think about those other books that I don’t know if I’ll ever get to. Like you, I keep buying and then I get all of those books from pubs to review. Then I have to do my day job…… But I know you’re always willing to help out with the TBR list.** smooches**
