Coupled with her clumsiness, her powers always land her in sticky situations. After Eliza accidentally enchants Jake instead, they set rules to keep his arrow-struck desire at bay. So there went my perfect starting line. ? This is a clear case of a book not being right for the reader. It became a bit much too see everyone putting Eliza down in nearly every interaction and I really wanted her to tell everyone to go fuck themselves. Eliza, a descendant of Eros, fills in at her family Cupid-for-hire shop and makes couple fall in love. Their actions sometimes felt a little immature.
On the whole, a fun, charming and entertaining novel. It was a nice read, the first half was a slow build up of the story, establishing characters, backstories, and setting up of the conflict. Besides Jake and Eliza, the reader is introduced to other characters as well, including Eliza's family. I highly recommend this adorable book to everyone I know. Fortunately, my interest has been piqued and I look forward to seeing which avenue Amanda Heger takes with the story next. Features: Endless levels Endless increasing difficulty 3 Difficulty settings Simple but challenging game play. The premise was very nice.
This is just not the book for me. While on her first case, Eliza accidentally drops a candy dish on Jake and gives him love not the capital-L kind for her. It reminds me a lot of Kristine Grayson's Fates series, only instead of a modern twist on old fairy tales Crazy Cupid Love is about the Descendants of gods and creatures from Greek myth and how they get by in the modern day. Luckily or unluckily , Eliza's childhood friend Jake has returned from the Cupid Corps and offers to be her mentor. Look, I might not want to own a Mandroid but if you're going to introduce that element, you need to do it with compassion and nuance. Now I'm worried that the toy is used??? But the story is about much more: Eliza's arc is mostly to get over her fear of her own amazing powers she is the strongest Cupid that they know of and to believe in Love as a real thing seeing the manufactured one a lot can disillusion you. Disaster seems to strike whenever she tries to cast an enchantment on someone.
This story was cute and quirky and absolutely hilarious. With endless levels and increasing difficulty Cupid will need alot of help. Eliza's family runs a cupid-for-hire company and they are having some issues so Eliza has to step into the business even after she had made the decision of not using her abilities. Or the marketing, for that matter. She had a lot to prove with her family history.
Tainted hearts will corrupt his arrows so protect him while he sorts out the positive love hearts. In this world, Cupids are the only mythical descendants the public knows about, but the story introduces Furies, Nereids sea nymphs , and more. Make sure to check out the , too. I loved the premise of gods among us with the focus on Cupids who can help lovers find one another. It could be that I'm in a reading slump but I think it was just the writing style.
The characters are fun, but also relatable, and the story is fast paced and entertaining. I was rubbed the wrong way right off the bat if you'll pardon the intended pun , when I was bugged by a methed-out prostitute in the parking lot. They set up rules that seem really hard to follow. In regards, to the love interest Jake; I thought he was alright. It was cute, quirky, fun, and hilarious! I had read the synopsis and thought it sounded cutesy and hoped for an enjoyable light read.
Descendants of Discordia thrive on chaos, strong women like Ruth Bader Ginsburg were descended from Athena, etc. Eliza Herman is the world's self-proclaimed worst cupid. However — let me tell you — this book was so beyond anything I could have hoped for! I bought a Fleshlight from there. I called back asking why is the box open and the toy looked like it was taken apart and not put back together properly. There are corny advertising jingles played on the radio for other Cupids.
It was not only cutesy and fun but it was outrageously laugh-out-loud hilarious! That leaves Eliza to pick up the slack that means getting her provisional license and that means she needs a mentor, that's where Jake comes in. Eliza, however, is a bit of a black sheep in her family- she is clumsy and prone to accidentally enchanting senior citizens, and, worst of all, she does not really believe in love. This was such a fun read! It also set up the romantic connection between Eliza and Jake. This author was new to me, and this story sounded unique, so I jumped in. There are three distinct storylines going on in this book - Eliza applying for a license and taking on clients to substitute for her dad who is recovering from a heart attack, her budding romance with Jake being complicated by the enchantment on him, and the weird phenomenon of enchantments breaking down, amidst an atmosphere of distrust towards Cupids and tight regulation of their work. Go back to your lair, 8-ball. Now I'm worried that the toy is used??? About This Game Cupids having a rough day sorting through all of the positive feelings in the world.
