  • five-star read that you won’t want to breakup with

    The Break up by Tilly Tennant a five-star read that you won’t want to break up with. This is sweet and romantic story, that will make you want to curl up with a book a hot cuppa and a cat (or a similar substitute). Lara and Theo will just make you smile, and Betsi will just add to the smiles as well, just in a different way. I didn’t know what I was going to write about this one if I’m honest as it did go on in a couple of places, and I did drift, and I just hated one or two of the characters, but in the end it was simply magic and it made up for the drops in every way.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    I had to read this one because a) Tilly Tennant is one of my fav romance authors and b) even though I'm more of a dog person (sorry Fluffy!) I love books where animals have an important role in the story. Although it was a cute read it took me longer than usual to warm up to most of the characters and the story took some time to took off. Lara was a nice character, and anyone who has a pet can identify with her and her feelings towards her cat. There were some pretty horrible characters and I'm not sure I would have been as understanding as Lara was with Siobhan at the end. The cover was so cute, the title change not so much. I don't understand why they changed a title so meaningful to the story like "A cat called Cupid" for the more generic "The break up" :( Recommended to all those who love light romance stories and cat lovers.

  • Enjoyable

    This was a nice soft story that during this period of time was much needed! A roaming cat brings together two head strong people by going to each houses for care not knowing what he causing! He brought love!

  • Loved this romance.

    The cat's name is Fluffy. Or is it Satcho? He answers both to two different owners. The true fact is that he owns two humans. Fluffy/Satchmo has it all. A place to hang out during the day, and a place to hang out at night. And, a very full belly to boot. One day the cat doesn't turn up at neither residences. Lara and Theo are about to meet as they scour the neighborhood for their missing cat. Roaming about in the neighborhood they keep calling out. While Lara is calling for Fluffy, she is approached by a man, and she reacts quickly and effectively, flipping him on the ground. That is how they meet. When it becomes clear that the cat they are both seeking, any chance on kindness quickly dissipates and they become instant enemies. They find the cat are both grabbing at the him, who, in rather quick fashion, takes off again. Things are not going well for either of them. The cat, on the other hand, certainly has no worries. Lara is especially affected. Hurt by a man who cheated on her, she decided to start over again as a wedding planner. She may never find happiness, but she will go to whatever means to start happy couples on their journeys in life. Finding Fluffy gave her something to love at a difficult time in her life. Since Fluffy always came back, she never worried he would actually disappear, so she is heartbroken. And now that she almost had him back, a sexy stranger is declaring that the cat is his. Lara cannot help but wonder why she is drawn to the man, despite the fact that she hates the fact that he is claiming Fluffy to be his, and has even given him a name of his own. Theo has his own feelings about Satchmo. As a busy jazz musician, he enjoys being able to relax with his new fur buddy. As far as he is concerned, Satchmo belongs to him, and the beautiful Lara can go find another cat. Lara and Theo continue to cross paths. Despite their rocky beginning - and the fact that at least one of them might end up giving up their beloved cat - sparks fly. I have to admit that I am a sucker to romances with pets, and A Cat Called Cupid is just the perfect book with a beautiful, wise, rather matchmaking cat. The book cover works too, showing a house on the left and one on the right with the cat in the middle. How could I not read this for review? This delightful tale (pun intended) by Tilly Tennant is a very sweet read - all of her books are. I was drawn into the story from the very first page and happily sat and read it from cover to cover in one sitting. I truly enjoyed the fact that Lara got another chance at love and her own happy future. The story progressed on several levels as Lara and Theo found love, with a lovely tabby along for the ride. Many thanks to Bookoture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review. This is my honest opinion.

  • lovely, refreshing and cozy

    The Break Up was heartwarming chick lit, cozy romance and women’s fiction that revolved around Lara and life after heart break. It was about betrayal, working on your dream, coming out of heart break and finding closure of hurtful chapter in life, friendship, love, and pet love. Writing was cozy, lovely and uplifting. Book was written in third person narrative from Lara perspective. It started with the Break Up (so this new title make sense), but it was not just that. After ego-centric, narcissist, Lucien dumped Lara, she found out he left her for her best friend which left Lara heart broken and alone. Good thing, she didn’t wallow in misery because she found love and companion once again. Not in man, in cat called Fluffy that arrived to her on the very same fateful day to lift her spirit. She started her own business and year had been great with no time to think about heartbreak and man-less life. But cats are like men. They love to roam around especially at night and go where they get food and cuddle. Fluffy was no different. When Lara was out in her Pajama to find Fluffy, she came across Theo looking for his cat, Satchmo. Turned out both were looking for same cat and that followed by arguments, disagreements, and finding middle solution to work together. Lara found him handsome and attraction was undeniable. But was she really over her heartbreak, ready for another relationship? Can she trust Theo not breaking her heart? As soon as life was going on right track for Lara, Lucien came back in her path to destroy her life and confidence. It was interesting to find out who will keep the cat in question, if second chance at love would be lucky and what she will do about Lucien. Lara was, without a second thought, my favorite character. She was sensible, developed, kind, compassionate, and lovely person. The way she treated her cat, her mother, her one and only employee- Betsy, and clients spoke the volume. She loved with full heart and that’s why it was just so sad to read her heartbreak and I could see why it was so hard for her to come out of it. She needed closer, to come out of it fully and when that moment came I admired her even more. Her friendship with Betsy was wonderful. I so wish I could work under such employer. Working hours, amiable tone and treatment, crying shoulder and helping person when in need… Who gets such employer! Honestly, I’m jealous even though I don’t have job. I even loved her love for her cat. My mom’s cat (partially mine, whenever I’m there) is so like Fluffy. Only thing different is he doesn’t sleep at anybody’s house. But like Fluffy he loves to roam, his freedom, treats and yes he loves variety in his food. I could understand Lara’s worry, what it’s like when cat is lost more than a day, how it feels when it gets hurt. When it comes to Theo. I liked him but I guess he was bit idiot too! How can he believe in rumors and then question Lara even when she needed understanding and support. I sided with Lara when she gave him hard time. He deserved what he got. His cocky and arrogant exterior made it hard for Lara and me to warm to him, initially. But I’m also glad he wasn’t like Lucien or any men. He was caring, kind and decent guy. At the end he made it hard not to like him. I enjoyed reading Lara’s dedication towards her business, Places she visited for her wedding services, all sort of clients she dealt with and moreover perks of working from home office set in her own garden. I so wish I could carry my laptop and kindle over there while reading this book. It is different thing blogging is not job but girl can dream, right? Lara and Theo’s hate-to-Love relationship was entertaining. They both disliked and somewhat hated each other. Every time they met there was arguments and disagreements over the cat, each wanting to take their cat back for good. Attraction was there from the beginning, but both were too pride to admit it until one had to swallow it and other had to be good and kind. I liked how it progressed. It was not usual, like they went on date or something but chemistry was there until that douchebag Lucien stuck his nose in. My goodness, he was do obnoxious. I just couldn’t fathom how Lara could have dated him in the first place! Climax was sad. It broke my heart seeing Lara heartbroken once again and felt new found admiration for all she did for Betsy and the way move ahead in life. I thought she would lose everything but that wasn’t the case. I’m still shocked and thinking how can her ex-best friend could be so blind and naïve. The tension near end was palpable and I feared the worst but happy ending was inevitable like all chick lits. I loved how things turned out and I could see why it was title ‘Cat Called Cupid’ first. I still think that title was better. Overall it was lovely, refreshing and cozy chick lit, part romance and women’s fiction. I highly recommend this book to cat lovers and fans of this genre and those who loves pretty covers.
