When Eliza Herman learned that her family Cupid business is in trouble, she had no choice but to help. But her history of mishaps when it comes to her magic worries her. She always enchant the wrong persons, making them in love (and in lust) with her and she did it to Jake too, her childhood friend and crush, and now mentor. But Eliza has a business to save, so she and Jake set rules to keep his arrow-struck desire at bay. But love is maybe stronger than they ever thought and before long they’re both rethinking their stance in love.
I love the concept of this novel. Descendants are on the spotlight and in this book, the Descendants of Eros. Cupids are a thing and they’re on business. People go to them to fall in love or bring back the spark between couples. I think it’s a great concept but as great as it is, I think the execution of the plot fell flat and unsatisfying in the end. It’s NOT really bad but I want more. I want more. This is a series so maybe I’ll see more. (Note this is a series but can be read as a standalone)
Still it was an okay read.
I like the idea that our MC, Eliza, is not at all good at being a cupid, that way, I would see her develop not just as a character but as a cupid. But I must admit, at the first quarter of the story, she’s TOO clumsy and too lame. I almost dislike her. Entered Jake. Jake makes Eliza’s character look better to the reader. It’s because Eliza finally has someone she interacts with who really sees her as someone who can do amazing things. Sure she has good relationship with her brother and father, but her mother’s usually mean. Not in an evil way but she sees Eliza as someone who can do no good.
I like the little twist of a conflict added in the story so overall this is an OK read, as I said earlier. I still enjoyed it but not as much as I expected, I look forward to reading more from this author and especially the next ones in the series. 🙂
I voluntarily read and reviewed this book. Big thanks to Sourcebooks Casablanca and Netgalley for granting me a copy.
