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.

    " So, yes, I checked this out from the library after reading a somewhat snarky review. As a "normal" book, it is...quite bad. As the book you and friends take turns reading out loud over bourbon, it is amazing. I can't really evaluate it as a straight-up self-help book, but if you are looking for a very (very!) quick read of something funny, there's nothing better out there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alisha (Underworld Book Chick) | 2/14/2014

    " OK I only read half through it and I do not like it why it is giving you all advise about love, I just think it is boring for her first book. I think she is better acting and singing than writing a book that is all I have to say. This book was my waste of money $24.00 dollars down the drain... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 2/12/2014

    " Read in one hour. Somewhat endearing, liked the tone, but not awesome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liliana | 2/10/2014

    " I really liked this book although i feel there are other self-help / relationship books out there that are much better. But i just love Jennifer Love Hewitt and she has such a beautiful personality and i felt like i can relate to her with this book. It was like listening to advice from a friend, a lot of it is common sense but it was also helpful reminders that sometimes we tend to forget. She makes you remember about being happy for you first, and ways to go about it, also how to handle breakups, meeting someone new or dating in general. Very fast and fun read. I liked it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon Renee | 2/9/2014

    " It was ok. I just wished I'd had alot more JLH in it. Her advice, which is not new, would be more relatable and realistic if based on her love life. Quick read. OK. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny | 2/4/2014

    " Bought this because I needed some night-time before bed fluff...and out of sheer curiosity given JLH's public love life. I thought it was good, not great. But actually better than a lot of the super self-help-y dating books out there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 1/25/2014

    " I saw this at the library and couldn't resist. It read like a blog, was very entertaining (often unintentionally), and included a workout designed by JLH's trainer that I copied and am actually going to try to do! It probably took me less than an hour to read, too, so there's nothing to feel bad about. :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 1/24/2014

    " silly...short read....free download...more about her dating advice than "love".....enough said...... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yansi Cano | 1/16/2014

    " I actually read/heard this book as an audio book, I found it rather funny than advising. The good thing was that JLH was the one who narrated the book. Its a great laugh to me and a good something to read while u have nothing to do. I guess she gives 'good' advice but women aren't all alike so yea.. But good for her because she made a lot of money "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allie | 1/11/2014

    " I little too much. She is giving love advice, and trying so hard. But it was a quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephany | 12/4/2013

    " Light and easy to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Valerie | 11/13/2013

    " I wish I could give this negative stars. I got this as a gift and thought it would be funny. It wasn't, it was lame and was a lot different than I expected. It was not a comedy, it was a self-help book on finding true love. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 11/7/2013

    " I bought this book on the clearance rack at Wal-mart and I'm glad I didn't spend a lot of money on it. It was worth the few dollars I spent on it. It was a fun-loving kind of book, but it just wasn't really what I was expecting it to be. It was a short book, and a fast read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maureen | 10/9/2013

    " It was okay - a very quick read. I had read some darker books and just wanted something light & quick to read and this happened to fill the bill. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Elizabeth Morton | 7/21/2013

    " Delightful & charming. A great little book to help woman talk about love & having fabulous self-esteem. Where was this book when I was single? Good job Jennifer! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana Jacobsen | 7/13/2013

    " If you're a fan of JHL or newly single you'll probably enjoy this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 9/3/2012

    " Not what I expected - a bit more explict than I anticipated. Some humorous parts but mostly a "just get through" it book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 7/31/2012

    " not having a romantic bone in my body,i listened to the audiobook as a favor to a friend ,i found it insightful and funny which is why i gave it 4 stars.,could be we share the sense of humor .as for the vajazzling to each his own. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jasmine | 7/26/2012

    " Major waste of time...but did I expect it to be something else? So glad I borrowed this one from the public library and didn't shell out cash for this ridiculous book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Blair | 7/2/2012

    " I'd rate it a negative star if I could. Parts are funny but I would like the two hours back. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dani | 1/30/2011

    " The "chapters" are really little snippets, which makes this the perfect bathroom book. There is nothing earth-shattering in the text, but then I'm not the target audience for this book. My 18-year-old enjoyed it more than I did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kryssy | 1/30/2011

    " I see this book did not exactly receive the warmest of reviews. However, getting this book from B&N.com for only $3.99, how could I say no? Let's see how this book is... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ivy | 11/30/2010

    " Amazing read for all women! We can truly relate to being a "love-aholic" at some point in our lives. JLH really brings the point across with honesty, humor and a little "vajazzle" ;) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 11/26/2010

    " Yes it is by Jennifer Love Hewitt so my expectations were not high. Are you going to find enlightenment within? No. Is the part about bedazzling her whoo-ha worth the read, yep. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon | 11/25/2010

    " Cute little book. I like JLH, which is the only reason I read this book. I could relate to some stuff based on past relationships. I'm not sure how helpful it would be if I was actually going through a break-up. Possibly. "
