Matching Wits with Venus

Therese Gilardi
Paranormal Romance

"The way to a man's heart is through his stomach, not a woman's."

Venus's power is waning - and she doesn't know why.  Perhaps it is because of people like Amelia down the street, who are trying to be matchmakers using science.  People are trusting technology more than the gods and their power.  But when she sends her son to stop her, Venus may risk more than she was bargaining for.  Amelia is content finding good matches for other people - she doesn't have time for another man in her life.  But when Cupid comes through her door, she just might have to change her priorities and follow her heart.  Cupid is struck by feelings for Amelia that he didn't know he could feel - he certainly hadn't felt before now.  But how to help her without making things worse?

My Opinion: This was a fun book with a lot of twists and turns.  It is an interesting concept to mix the contemporary world with an ancient mythological one - but the author does a good job combining them realistically.  Cupid is a cute character that is just a bit naive about the world.  Amelia is a tough character who definitely has been hurt before and struggles to open up again.  I love how the story developed and grew to places you never expected.  There were times that the plot was a little abrupt, but altogether it was a good read.  The side characters of both Venus and Stella were wonderful!

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
