Publisher's Summary

For any woman who has ever bought a self-help book and wondered why she bothered (P.S. Now that I know he's just not that into me, where do I go from there? Yeah, thanks for that advice). Jennifer Love Hewitt is a self-proclaimed "love-aholic" and hopeless romantic (her middle name is Love, after all!). She has been lucky and unlucky in love, and lived to tell about it---and she's done it all in the spotlight. Much has been written about her love life---some true, most made up to sell magazines. Now Hewitt shares the real story of what she's learned navigating the dangerous dating waters.
In The Day I Shot Cupid, Hewitt offers her hard-won wisdom and tells us how to embrace love with both feet on the ground. First, we have to shoot Cupid. We have to believe that happily-ever-after is hard work---it's not all flowers and symphonies and floating hearts. Wise and wry and refreshingly honest, Hewitt talks about how to pick the right guy and how to know when to let the wrong ones go free, and she offers some surprising truths about the opposite sex. From twenty things to do after a breakup, to ten things to do before a date, to the perils of text flirting (Note: You are waiting. By the phone. For his response), Hewitt uses stories and dating secrets to illustrate the idiotic, romantic, crazy, depressing, hilarious, awkward, glorious moments we all experience in relationships.
Funny, quirky, and empowering, The Day I Shot Cupid deserves a place on every woman's nightstand, bookshelf, or coffee table, or tucked inside her oversized designer handbag.

cute, cute, cute

JLH's book is as spunky as she is! Lots of laughs.. mostly cause we can relate with her experiences and because she tells them in such a humorous manner. So glad she read her own audio book as it somehow made everything much more relevant.

It's alright. There is nothing earth shattering contained in this book. I don't think it is meant to have the greatest revelations. It seems to be a bit of self indulgence for JLH. I guess that is alright if it is what she needed to move on in here life. The audio is a bit rough. It sounded like she recorded it in her living room with a four track recorder. If you are buying it for entertainment and fun then it is fine, if you are buying it because you think it will change your life...then please get help elsewhere.
