"'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?

So Fun! So Cute! So Hot

This story had such potential - the story of a girl born into a family of cupids whose own abilities always back-fire on her.. The premise was great and the story was good. I would have even given it 5 stars had it not ruined the story with sex scenes that seemed like fillers only put in to make the book longer

All my favorite things: humor, magic, happily-ever-after, plus "sort of" gods in great variety. My first book by this author; won't be my last!

The main part of the book was great: amusing, new angle, nice story. But I was totally turned off by the very unnecessary pornagraphic interlude wedged in the middle. Seriously? Authors (and Publishers!) please listen! Readers ~don't~ always want (and never need) the graphic sex details, especially with no warning! Most of us would prefer a nice PG film!
funny, funny, funny. fast reading.

Rating: 3.5 stars 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 times takes that a little too far and is just *too* out there and hard to relate to or take seriously. Eliza and her brother, Elijah (BTW - that's AWFUL - who would do that?) are such fun characters, and I'm hoping there are more books in this series so we get to read more about Elijah falling in love. Jake is also a *dreamboat* and I love that there are the occasional little half-chapters inserted throughout the book that give Jake's POV. It really adds an extra dimension to the story to get into his head, and also made me go *SQUEEEEEE!* and have little floaty hearts come out of my head. Possibly a small cartoon bird or two as well. There's also a LOT to this book, with Eliza and Jake's romance, Eliza's own personal journey and self-growth, and then the bad-guy plot (and hoo boy, the bad guy was actually a surprise to me, even though there was plenty of foreshadowing and you'd think I'd have seen that coming but NO! I did NOT!) All of these elements overlap and intertwine to keep the story moving forward and the action at a pace that's really enjoyable. One more thing I really love is the way Amanda Heger just super naturally has people of all genders fall in love, and her couples aren't all male/female pairings. There's no big fanfare or noise made, she just quietly has couples of all sorts pairing up, and I appreciate it. More of this in all the books, please. :)

When I read the description of this, I really didn’t think I was going to like this book. It sounded like just another quirky romance killing Greek mythology. However, I liked Eliza right from the beginning. I soon found myself not being able to put the book down until I was done. I liked the brief chapters that were in Jake’s POV. I thought they were the perfect length and info. There was only a couple of things. when it was in Jake’s POV, it was first person but when it was Eliza, it was third person. Also, it’s not explained up front what has to happen for the “cupids” to do their work. It makes it a little confusing as to why things that happen to her occur. It’s not until a pretty good chunk into the book when Eliza is trying to explain things to a potential client that I finally got it. I look forward to reading more from this author. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

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.

Crazy Cupid Love was just the right book for me to read after too many emotional ones. It is such a cute story that I could not put it down. Magic and spells abound for a struggling modern day Cupid who must face her fear of failures and somehow save her family’s match making business. There is an undercurrent of evil working against her but her best friend (a guy she really loves) is by her side the entire way.

Crazy Cupid Love by Amanda Heger is the first in a new series. Main characters, Eliza and Jake had me hooked from page one. I alternately laughed out loud and groaned at the Cupid adventures they get into. The off-the-wall premise with a touch of suspense makes the story that much richer and keeps pages turning quickly. Heger has created a fun new world that I can’t wait to revisit. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.

This book was about Eliza, who has the world’s worst luck, and Jake, who is a family friend. Both are descendants of Eros. Eliza is a trainee cupid and Jake is her mentor. Eliza discovers that she is a very powerful cupid and she is madly in love with Jake and had been since she was a kid. It was an interesting story. It was a quick read that had me laughing. The best was the government department A.S.S. Some of the stunts that she pulls with Jake also had me laughing. The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is because the trend is to have a strong female character, but she has to be clumsy. It gets old quick. The story would have been just as good if the Eliza was not clumsy or if it was not pointed out every 5 minutes. Finally, another story with her twin would be interesting. Overall the story kept me interested even through the slow times. I was given an advance copy for my honest review.

I loved this book! Amanda Heger did an amazing job weaving this story together. I had read what I thought was a similar book right before this one so I thought I knew what I was getting into, but I was pleasantly surprised! Basically, Eliza, who is a descendant of Eros, fills in at her family's cupid-for-hire shop after a family crisis. Eliza begins enchanting couples under the watchful eye of her mentor Jake who she accidentally enchants instead. Jake and Eliza were very cute together and I liked that there were some chapters that were from his point of view. I think it really added to the story. I thought the characters were well thought out and the storyline is well written. There is a lot of humour in the book which I really enjoyed. It was a fun romantic comedy that I would recommend to anyone that likes paranormal/mythological romances. If you don't like that kind of book than this one is not for you. “I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.”

In an alternate world where Cupids are known among the regular humans, Eliza Herman, an Erosian who quit being a Cupid has to become one again to help her family business from going under. Complicating matters is the fact that she accidentally enchants her childhood best friend, crush and current mentor, Jake, which means a sexual-tension filled working relationship at the least, and a new phenomenon where people's enchantments are breaking down. Crazy Cupid Love may be best described as a rom-com-mystery, with a down-on-her-luck protagonist, a sexy love interest and some hilarious clientele. 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. The world that they live in has Erosians out and about doing their work, with consent, but other Greek Descendants living in hiding, and while they have a society of Descendants that collectively manages their matters, Erosians are sort of in the doghouse for outing themselves. This means strict rules about their work and more importantly, their working and personal relationships. Which is why Jake and Eliza have to try hard to not give into their respective feelings for each other (and also the classic unrequited crush scenario being actually requited), not until the illegal enchantment on him wears off. There are some intermittent chapters in first person from Jake that is pretty much a lot of him hiding his feelings from her, and not knowing what to do about it. Meanwhile, Eliza has to deal with some interesting clientele, ranging from an old married couple to troubleshooting a sex robotMandroid (god, I loved that scene!) to getting two zoo animals together. Honestly, I would love a sitcom of just the rotating door of wacky client requests that come to her! 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). And later, she is also working to uncover a conspiracy regarding the Descendant society. The last quarter of the book had a LOT going on, and it may have partly been my sleepiness (as I was racing to finish it before bedtime), but it was a lot of 'WTF?' for me. The romance was cute in the start, with the misunderstanding between them leading to a lot of awkward scenarios, but also Jake trying and failing to restrain his flirting. Also Eliza is thinking he is not at all attracted to her, but he is trying so hard to not show it that he looks like he is sick. Then it built up sexual tension, and well, there are some steamy scenes, too. The later parts sort of fizzled out the romance, as they were involved in the conspiracy thing, plus another thing that caused a rift between them, which is why the epilogue felt a bit rushed when it came to the romance, but overall, it was a satisfactory ending to their story. On the whole, a fun, charming and entertaining novel.

"Crazy Cupid Love" is such a fantastic romance novel with a mythological twist! Eliza is a descendant of Eros, a.k.a. a Cupid, but she has never really embraced her heritage. She always seems to stumble and have her gift go awry. With some Cupids, they have to draw blood to work their powers (like with the traditional bow and arrows) and make someone fall in temporary love (to be differentiated from the real capital-L Love). Eliza is so powerful that even the tiniest injury can induce love (essentially lust). As such, she views herself as a liability and stays out of the family Cupid business. After Cupids went public, the government has highly regulated them. When she learns that her family's business is in trouble, Eliza offers to step in temporarily, but doing so will require her to go through the government regulations/licensing process. As part of that, she must select a non-family member mentor. Luckily (or unluckily), Eliza's childhood friend Jake has returned from the Cupid Corps and offers to be her mentor. Unbeknownst to the other, they have each had a crush on the other for a long time. While on her first case, Eliza accidentally drops a candy dish on Jake and gives him love (not the capital-L kind) for her. They set up rules that seem really hard to follow. As Eliza works to keep the family business running, it turns out there is something more sinister afoot and Eliza is trying to figure it out along the way. With the romance, funny anecdotes, and the mystery of what is happening to Cupid enchantments, the book is a really enjoyable ride. In terms of the romance, I absolutely loved the couple- we get a couple sections from Jake's point-of-view which were icing on the cake. With the cases Eliza handles, this adds some funny and sweet stories to the plot. Adding in the mystery (which I honestly did not figure out on my own- the best kind), it gets a slight cozy mystery feel. Overall, this was a really fantastic read, and I really loved it! You'll want to snag this one before Valentine's Day, and I think you'll fall in love with these characters and story too! Please note that I received an ARC from the publisher through netgalley. All opinions are my own.

If you’re in the mood for a laugh-a-minute thrill ride of love, humor, and amazing F-U-N then this book is totally for you! A brief glimpse inside the amazingly talented mind of Amanda Heger where everything can be turned into a double entendre this book is an escape from the mundane and a trip into the roller coaster world of Cupid’s and other mythical creatures. There is literally nowhere that Heger is afraid to go, and nothing she won’t say to make you smile and experience all of the feels. Have you ever wondered what would happen if two Cupid’s fell in love? Have you ever wondered if that love story was set to the tune of all of the pop culture references you could ever imagine and set against the backdrop of inuendo and “that’s what she said” jokes in a light hearted, thoroughly entertaining way? Heger did, and then she set out to tell us her vision in such exquisite descriptive detail that the world she created not only became real we miss it more than a little bit when we read “the end”. An instant classic!
