Stupid Cupid (Stupid Cupid #1)
Felicity's no ordinary teen matchmaker...she's a cupid!
Felicity Walker believes in true love. That's why she applies for a gig at the matchmaking company Cupid's Hollow. But when Felicity gets the job, she learns that she isn't just a matchmaker...she's a cupid! (There's more than one of them, you know.)
Armed with a hot pink, t...more
If your looking for a story with a lot of depth this isn't the book for you. But if you looking for something light, fluffy and feel good, than Stupid Cupid is right up your alley!
It's entertaining, funny.. lots of laugh-out-loud moments! The plot itself was a little predictable, but it was still interesting enough to keep you turning the pages. From the description, I thought it was going to be more along the lines of Felicity finding out she is related to the "real...more
I’m actually reading the omnibus, but I wanted to post the reviews for each book separately.
I’ve found that with YA books, if it’s not paranormal or a re-telling of a fairy tale, I find them to be a bit young for me. Not that they’re not good, it’s just that the paranormal tales often seem to be more like adult books, but with teenagers, while books like Stupid Cupid are more teen-like. I know this is kind of a stupid thing to say since they’re YA books, but that’s just the way it is.
I got this book for free as a prize...more
Felicity needs a job and lands one at a matchmaking service called Cupids Hollow. When her boss explains to her that she IS a cupid, she will be able to make matches in her school via a cupid-arrow/email. Cupids Hollow is funded by the flower/card industries, so when love is in the air, everyone profits.

Felicity proves herself to be a happy-go-lucky. As the story progresses, she learns that just like every job, her matchmaking demands a responsible attitude. With every mistake she commits, Felicity emerges with a better judgment of rig...more
With a PDA and a job to do, she is on the hunt for the perfect matches and lots of bonuses to come her way. But when Felicity matches her...more
I just finished my new book today, it’s called Stupid Cupid by Rhonda Stapleton. I think this was an interesting and very odd book but I liked the idea.
Felicity believes in true love (and is also broke) so she applies for a job at a match making company called Cupids Hollow. What Felicity doesn’t realizes is she isn`t just going to be matching people up from a dating site, she will be matching people up from her school. The cool thing about Felicity`s job thought is she is...more
I normally would have passed on this type of book just by looking at the cover because I would have thought it to be realistic fiction and I am not all that into that type of genre. Not because this cover isn't attractive but it would not have normally appealed to me because it looks like one of those girly realistic love stories. I am so glad that I went to a book signing and heard Rhonda talk about this book. Rhonda is extremely funny in person and I just knew if a tenth of her personality cam...more
It is a teen drama that I think the author put too much effort into. She had swear words where there weren't any needed and it was sort of a boring story. With that said, I have requested book #2 from the library. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a series of books.
Felicity Walker is hired as a "cupid" for a dating company. She is able to send emails that, once opened, are ab...more
A few questions first of all. If the 'manual' was so important to read, then why did she end up jot reading it and turning out just fine? Also, wasn't it really REALLY bad to match someone up with 2 people, so how come she did it with 3 and no one found out and it STILL turned out to be okay...? Also, I thought it was too childish (I'm sorry! It was in the teen section!) and cliche in the end. I mean, why does the main chara...more
Not to mention since she now works as a cupid, she can't even match make herself with the guy she's been crushing on. Having to resort to the normal method of getting a guy, who she can barely talk to is hard work she realizes, but completely...more
Stupid Cupid is a fantastic, fast read. This book was a very enjoyable, easy to read, and interesting enough to keep me turning the pages. Sometimes, I would even laugh out loud or giggle at whatever was happening (the situation between her parents, a prime example!). It was definitely a good way to start the series and I most certainly can’t wait to read more.
Felicity is the classic good friend, who of course causes a bit of trouble for her friend only while try...more
Felicity is givin a PDA, one that is magical, it sends emails instead of arrows, the latest cupid technology. But Felicity soon finds out that being a cupid isn't as easy as she thought it would be. She's made her first love match, two kids from school, and it seems to be going...more
Why I Read: I had seen some reviews of it and I liked the concept.
My Thoughts: I don't know if I've read too much YA lately or if I'm becoming blase but I found this rather predictable and the main character very aggravating. Her attitude toward her job was infuria...more
My main thing with this book was that it was very predictable. I guessed what was going to happen at the end about halfway through the book. It didn't keep me wondering what was going to happen, and that disap...more
I loved the characters. They were all so fresh. Felicity, Maya and Andy were all different from each other, but you could tell the bonds of friendsh...more
Felicity scored a job - she's become a cupid. Cupid is no longer only for adults and there's a whole slew of them. With this new job, Felicity has the power to create love matches by sending blank emails to the couple with potential.
There are rules involved: each potential couple must have at least three points of common interest, you don't hook up more than one person with another, and above all you must learn from the matches that don't make it a...more
Anyway, getting back to the main characters. Felicity, Andy, and Maya were all girls that were definitely not stereotypical and had several different layers to them that made you enj...more
The three main characters, Felicity, Maya and Andy are best friends forever. They've had each other's back for the longest time so it's natural that Felicity would want to help boost Maya's love life. And watching it unfold with its twists and surprises was hilarious.
Though none of the characters had any real depth in th...more
I would have liked a little more background story on Cupid’s H...more
Writing was witty and conversational.
Felicity is believable as your quirky, everyday
high school girl (who just happens to work for
a matchmaking company as a cupid).
The cupid/fantasy elements aren't too much,
and the story revolves more around the consequences
of Felicity's matches.
It doesn't exactly end on an exciting note,
but I will read the rest of the series.
Lovely characters, cute story, nice easy read. :)
I will be on the look out for Flirting with Disaster and Pucker Up when they come out, I cant wait to see what Felicity is up to next!
In the twelve minutes of free time she has each day, Rhonda enjoys reading, photography, writing poetry, singing in the shower (and in the car, at w...more
