"'Percy Jackson for Romance fans.' Delightful."―RT Book Reviews Forewords
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?
A romantic comedy with a tad of magic… interesting. Crazy Cupid Love isn’t my normal read although I love romance and who doesn’t love magic, I’ve just never read them in the same book. Amanda Heger is also new to me and is now an author that I look forward to reading more of.
Eliza is a hot mess. Every time she tries to help someone she ends up enchanting someone different and it doesn’t always work out for the best. Jake isn’t worried about Eliza’s mix-up, he just wants to spend time with her. He offers to mentor her as a way to not only help her get her license but to also spend time with her. I enjoyed everything about the two of them. Together they made me laugh and smile, their adventures in getting Eliza mentioned made me shake my head and grin, and I cheered them on from their meeting in the driveway on Eliza’s birthday.
I’d recommend this to someone looking for a light fun read. There is romance, there is magic, and there is family.
