When a single arrow inspires romance, can you really trust happily ever after? In this magical rom-com, the descendants of Greek mythology must learn to live and love in a mundane world where Aphrodite's blessing can sure feel like a real pain in the quiver.
Eliza Herman (a.k.a. The World's Worst Cupid) has spent her entire life carefully avoiding her calling as a Descendant of Eros. After all, happily-ever-afters are nothing but a myth.
But when a family crisis requires her to fill in at the local Cupid-for-hire shop, Eliza finds herself enchanting couples under the watchful eye of her assigned mentor, Jake Sanders...the one man she could never get out of her head.
Before long, Eliza is rethinking her stance on romance—until things start going terribly wrong with her enchantments. Now Eliza and Jake must fight to unravel a conspiracy that could destroy thousands of relationships, including their own...and spell the end of Love itself.
No pressure, right?
It might be a little late for a "Valentines" themed book review, but this one is so worth it and could be read any time of year.
I Capital-L Loved this book!!! It was such a fun and fantastic read.
Eliza is a Cupid, a descendant of Eros. Her family are Cupids as well and this is one of the only mythological creatures that have actually gone public. They've ran a little Cupid business, offering enchantments to people, for decades but Eliza has done everything she can to stay away from the "cupid" line of work. Not because she's weak. It's because she's so very strong.
When her father falls ill, and she learns that the family business is on it's last leg, Eliza does the one thing she has tried so hard to avoid...agrees to get her license and jump into the Cupid business. Buyer Beware!!!
Of course, getting your license isn't as easy as you would think and the Cupid business is highly regulated, especially since Cupids are seen as the lowest of mythological creatures.
She can't do it alone and how perfect that her childhood best-friend and highly experienced Cupid, Jake, happens to be available (and very willing) to help Eliza out. He's a lot yummier than she remembered and with "anti-cupid" villains lurking in the shadows, there's no telling where this crazy road will lead.
I thought this book was fun, charming, and highly entertaining. The characters were unique and the story kept me on my toes. It was full of twists and turns that I didn't see coming and I was pleasantly surprised by all the laugh-out-loud moments.
The writing was great, the plot was intriguing and mysteries were revealed at a perfect pace. I adored the main characters and because it is a "Valentines" themed book, had high expectations in the romance and passion department. I was NOT disappointed. Jake is sexy as sin and the love scenes were scorching HOT!!!
Thank you, Ms. Heger, for a fun and crazy ride. I'll definitely keep my feelers out for future additions to this series.
