Sixteen-year-old cupid-in-training Kali is in an Olympus-sized mountain of trouble. Rule number one in arrow-toting matchmaking: don't stick yourself. But accidents happen, and Kali instantly falls hard for her indie rock, bass-playing target, Benicio. The God of Love is going to kill her. Even if he is her dad.

Being the daughter of Eros isn't all it's cracked up to be. For one thing, a girl can get jaded when her parents have the most beautiful and fatalistic love story in history. For another, immortality royally sucks when the Oracle condemns you to eternity in the wrong profession. Do the Gods care that Kali wants to ditch the love stuff and be a muse? Nope.

To reclaim her heart and her destiny, Kali is left with no choice but to defy the Gods, tempt the Fates, date the mortal love of her life, and hope she doesn't lose her best friend, Hector, in the process.

You might think that being the daughter of Eros, Kali might be good at the whole cupid thing. Kali would be the first to disagree. After repeatedly making poor matches, she finally makes the worst mistake a cupid can: sticking yourself with an arrow. Now on top of trying to be a cupid when she actually wants to be a muse, figuring out what's going on between her and her best friend, Hector, she's also now in arrow-induced-love with a human, Benicio. Getting out of this mess will take power only the gods have.

What I enjoyed most about LOVESTRUCK is the humor and the fun. It never takes itself too seriously, and there are so many hilarious myth-related puns and jokes. It takes all the fun teen drama of new love and adventure and combines it with Olympian figures. Readers looking for something light and sweet with a dash of fantasy will adore LOVESTRUCK.

While the story was fun, I did have a hard time making a connection to some of the characters. I wasn't invested enough to want to stay up late reading and never *had* to know how it ended. However, I think readers who are looking for fun drama and romantic antics will still want to grab this one.
