It’s going to be a complicated Valentine’s Day.
Rhymes with Cupid is a sweet, funny love story about a girl who finds romance despite her best efforts not to. All that Elyse Ulrich wants is to get through Valentine’s Day as painlessly as possible. Working at Goodman’s Gifts & Stationery is not helping. Now she spends her after-school hours surrounded by singing stuffed toys, tacky heart-shaped balloons, and sappy cards with poems that don’t even really rhyme.
Not to mention Patrick, the new boy at the mall who keeps asking her out. Sure, he’s charming, considerate, funny, and, okay, really cute, but none of that matters. Elyse isn’t interested in putting her heart on the line. But with Valentine’s Day approaching, she finds out that avoiding Cupid’s arrow is a lot harder than she thought.
