Dating in high school is like reality TV. It can get pretty surreal.

Between the strict social ladder (geeks’ lockers left, jocks’ to the right), and silly, pointless rules (no hand-holding, no kissing, no breathing!), high school is the single worst place to find a boyfriend. And Laura Sweeney is no exception. She hasn’t had a date since…well, ever.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. So Laura is calling in the big guns. She needs guidance. A proven “get the guy” strategy. Luckily she knows exactly the expert to call. He’s a matchmaking mastermind who actually has the bow and arrow to prove it. Let’s just call him…Cupid.

My Thoughts

This is a silly teen book about a girl named Laura Sweeney who loves mythology.  When she inadvertently beseeches Jupiter for a boyfriend, Cupid is sent to her school in disguise as a hot teenage girl and chaos ensues.

In the following days, Cupid manages to hook up several interesting couples that don’t always work out.  It takes a love match between nerdy boy Patrick popular head cheerleader Megan for Laura to realize she wanted the nerdy guy all along.

I think a pre-teen who loves to read will find enjoyment in this book, but it was a little too juvenile for me.

    I love books like this, if they’re written with some maturity. I’ll steer clear of this one. But, if you want a high school romance with great characters and drama, you should check out the Superlatives Series by Jennifer Echols. I’ve read the first 2 books and I have the 3rd one which releases in August. Which reminds me that I should read it soon. Find the for the first two books HERE and HERE

      Yeah O picked up a few from my used book store but they don’t seem to be my cup of tea. I’ll probably give them to a younger cousin of mine. I might have to give Jennifer Echols a go though because I sometimes do still enjoy these types of books.

  2. Ah! I remember reading these when I was younger! There were quite a few books that Simon Pulse made that looked similar to this one. I used to hunt for these in my library lol. I loved the super fluffy teen romances back then 🙂 Still love romance, but I’ve drifted more into fantasy now.

      I loved these same types of books when I was younger as well. But I started reading more adult romance at an early age so this one didn’t impress me so much. While I can still sometimes enjoy these types of books, the writing has to be really engaging.
