Cupid’s job is to help find true love for others, but it's a hard job to do when he’s in love with a man who barely acknowledges his existence. Fighting his own desires, he is ready to give up all emotions just to avoid the pain of not having the respect of the one that holds his heart, let alone craving his love.
The Keepers can find their soul mates among each other, but Cupid is young compared to the one who is meant for him. However, when violence strikes close to home for the Keepers, Cupid is needed to help in the healing process, but only if the soul mates acknowledge their love will the healing begin.
Is Cupid in time or will time finally run out? Leaving the one who brings couples together, alone and emotionless for all of eternity.

I really enjoyed the premise of Jess Buffett’s Cupid’s Time.  Who would expect Cupid, the Easter Bunny, or Mother Nature to be sexy hot men?  But Ms. Buffett’s new series The Keepers imagines just that.  And Cupid has the hots for Father Time, Thyme as he is known to other keepers.  But Thyme has little respect or regard for him, or does he?  I enjoyed Cupid.  He enjoyed his job.  And Ms. Buffett did a great job of mixing what we know about Cupid with her imagination.  I really enjoyed Thyme in this tale.  He is one of the oldest keepers and I could understand why he felt he was cradle robbing even though Cupid was a grown man of 5000.  He knew Cupid was his mate, but couldn’t figure out how to converse with Cupid in a way that wasn’t a bit condescending.  When he learned that Cupid felt disrespected, he tried to fix it but circumstances beyond his control contributed to their continued miscommunication.  I loved how Ms. Buffett resolved the issues between Thyme and Cupid.  Even though this was a quick read, it felt complete.  Both Thyme and Cupid were well developed characters.  The story was well written and I am looking forward to seeing more of Ms. Buffett’s Keepers find their happily every after.
