Crazy Cupid Love
Have you fallen deeply in love,
But get nervous approaching your dove?
Don't be stupid;
Hire a cupid!
'Cause sometimes love needs a shove.
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...more
I loved it !
It was original, funny, quirky and with a good dash of steamy as well . I love Greek mythology and I am always game to read any book even remotely connected to it and this book did not disappoint. It was refreshing to see the characters in a romantic comedy setting for a change but then when you have a story comprising of the descendants of Eros, the god of Love, (the modern day Cupids) and their shenanigans to keep the love enchantment business ...more
Crazy Cupid Love is the first book in a new series, “Let’s Get Mythical,” and, seriously, who can resist all of that word play!? Not me! This is exactly the fun, whimsical story I was searching for to read this holiday! The storyline is utterly charming, where Eros’ descendants are now living among us mere mortals and blending in as matchmakers as we swipe left or right. Eliza Hermann, aka the world’s worst Cupid, has ...more
The main character Eliza Herman comes from a family of Erosians, descendants of Ancient Greek God of Love, who run a slightly old-fashioned matchmaking business. 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. When her father suddenly falls ill, she finds out her ...more
Wickedly adorable. Capital L - Loved it. Paranormal romance.
Cupids are out in the open and getting paid to put their spells of enchantment on wanna-be lovers worldwide.
Filled with wordy humor and tongue-in-cheek lines, this romance tickled me quite often throughout the parody of this new world. Other Descendants (Disney or Greek Gods?) are still hidden from the human population. There is a Descendant bar scene at Dionysus that I would love to revisit. I can bet ...more
This was such a fun read! I didn't know what to expect when I started this one and I must say I was pleasantly surprised.
The premise was very nice. Eliza, a descendant of Eros, fills in at her family Cupid-for-hire shop and makes couple fall in love. Unfortunately she also accidentally enchants Jake, her mentor!
I was sold! The novel is filled with funny moments but it also has its steamy and ...more
Let's Get Mythical #1, I was real excited to read this. With RT Books Review calling it "Percy Jackson for Romance Fans." I was expecting a slightly more Urban Fantasy-esk/Rom-Com rather than just a Rom-Com with Mythological tendencies. 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. It also set up the romantic connection between Eliza and Jake.
Eliza and Jake have known each other since they ...more
The plot follows a klutzy failed Cupid named Eliza as she tries to figure out how to save her family and not fall for her former best friend turned Cupid mentor, Jake. If that sounds a little bizarre, that’s because it ...more
The premise was interesting, Cupid's in the modern time era but for me it failed to deliver. It could easily be a small town romance and "we can't be together because you're my supervisor".
Friends to lovers is one of my favourite tropes and Eliza and Jake were cute together. I liked that there were a few chapters from his point of view that added to the story.
Overall I was bored ...more
I almost DNFed this book but I am really glad that I ended up sticking it out. When I started the book I had no clue what I was getting into. I requested it on NetGalley because I liked the cover so as I started reading and find out that the story revolves around the mythological beings of cupids it really sparked my interest. Sounds like fun right...well it did take a little bit to really get into the story. Eliza has had a series of unfortunate events that follows her ...more
I decided to DNF this about 90 pages from the end as the side characters were more over the top than I could handle. Why is everyone but Jake and her dad so mean to her?! And why does she keep taking it?!) It also felt like the book was mocking Eliza’s clients at ...more
I’m one of those people who reads at the gym, and I swear, this book put me into so many awkward situations of bursting out laughing on the elliptical. It’s being called “Percy Jackson for romance fans” and I absolutely see why. The main character, Eliza, comes from a family of modern day cupids. Her parents own a Cupid business ...more
This story was so much fun to read, it was creative, very entertaining and funny. I loved the heroine, Eliza, she showed you can overcome your fears if you believe in yourself and trust that people also have faith and believe in you. She and Jake had great chemistry and I adored them. 4.5/5
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC.
The heroine is a down on her luck Cupid, or should I say failing Cupid. When disaster strikes her family she needs to step up and help out which means applying for her Cupid license (again) ...more
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. ...more
I didn’t really know what to expect going into Crazy Cupid Love, as this was a new author for me. I had read the synopsis and thought it sounded cutesy and hoped for an enjoyable light read. However – let me tell you – this book was so beyond anything I could have hoped for!
It was not only cutesy and fun but it was outrageously laugh-out-loud hilarious! A book that can literally make me ...more
Crazy Cupid Love enchanted me in the best possible way! I honestly wasn't sure what to expect from this book, but I surprisingly ended up really enjoying it! I love the quirky slapstick humour. Amanda Heger's writing style is in perfect sync with the quirky and fun world she built. What I love the most about this book is that the author doesn't write exaggerated humourous scenes at the expense of character and plot development. ...more
This is just not the book for me. I DNF this at halfway point. I found myself not wanting to pick this book up and read it. It could be that I'm in a reading slump but I think it was just the writing style. I think that if you enjoy romance and mythology, you would really enjoy this book. I up to try and read this book again when I'm in a romantic mood, but right now I rather read something else that I ...more
Percy Jackson if it were romance was all I could think while reading and now I notice it is also written on the cover. So there went my perfect starting line.
3.5, rounded up for interesting worldbuilding.
This is a world similar to ours, it's not that much of dystopia. Except, much to the distress of all other descendants from the Greek myths, people have found out cupids are real, and now they can sell their services. Eliza is also an Erosian but her powers don't need any arrow hitting the flesh ...more
This is a cute, fun romantic comedy take on the paranormal romance genre. 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. It's definitely a refreshing change from the jaded PI/bounty hunter schtick that so many paranormal romances seem to cling to, and is much more light-hearted and upbeat, though at ...more
I really thought I was going to like this book. The premise sounded interesting and like nothing I’d read before, and there were some really good sections of the the story but sadly it fell a little short for me. It was ok, but not something I would recommend to friends unfortunately.
**WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD**
It was quirky and fun but it ...more
Cupid is on the prowl but it's not in the form you'd think as Eliza is the new gal with the arrows.
Seriously she has taken on a new task in helping others fall in love but who knew she'd accidentally seal her own fate .
Can there truly be a happy ever after?
Can it be with Jake?
Jake has been cast under the spell so now what?
Conspiracy is underway and love is on the horizon....
Adorable, charming, cute, and inviting, this will have you loving every emotion.
I kind of also want my very bad ABC holiday movie edition of this, so somebody get on that ...more
