Unlovable by Cynthia St. Aubin (2nd Review)

It isn’t every day a sexy demigod throws a pissed-off Cupid onto psychologist Matilda Schmidt’s couch and informs her the fate of the world depends on her ability to get him off his diapered ass and back to helping people fall in love.

Just when Matilda convinces herself she’s not hallucinating, in walks a Vegas hit man with a big gun and a bigger threat: pay back the million dollars she owes a notorious casino mogul, or wind up as fish food in Lake Mead.

Rocketing across country with a gun to her head, Matilda has a dysfunctional love-god in her laptop bag, a million dollar debt she has no knowledge of, and must convince the seductive hit man he’s snatched the wrong woman before he convinces her he might be the right man—for a night.

Can Matilda stay alive long enough to keep love from becoming history?


This is the second time this book has been reviewed. The original review by SaturnMoonie can be found here. This newer post is written by Virginia.

I didn't quite know what to expect upon reading this particular piece of literature. I had a feeling it would be good, and it WAS. Very very good. As the first book I have read by this author I must say I am impressed by her technique. She's very modern in her work and her writing is like listening to one of your girlfriends tell her story.  I loved her rendition of Cupid, she really put a new spin on him and on love and lust. I also must say that the male love interest in this piece seems so sexy and witty that it makes me wonder why all men can't be spontaneous and sexy and have a sense of humor. He's also buff and can work a gun. She made sex light-weight and fun and it is overall a funny and flirty book. 

My only criticism is that it ended too soon. I was left wanting more. Which is a good thing and a bad thing. Over all 4 stars. Would have been 5 stars had it been just a teensy bit longer.
