Thank you to NetGalley and Wattpad Books for sending me an ebook of Cupid’s Match to review. This does not, in any way, affect my rating.

He’s mythologically hot, a little bit wicked, and almost 100% immortal. And he’ll hit you right in the heart . . .

“Miss Black, we have a big problem.”

Lila Black doesn’t believe in matchmaking, let alone soul mates. So then why is she constantly being hassled by the Cupids Matchmaking Service? But this gilded, cherub-bedecked dating agency isn’t exactly what it seems . . . and it’s about to turn Lila’s entire world upside down. 

It turns out that Cupids Matchmaking is the real deal. As in, it’s run by actual cupids—who don’t look at all like they do in the paintings—and they have a serious problem with Lila’s “match.” Because this guy shouldn’t be in the system. He shouldn’t have a match. And while he’s irresistibly hot, he’s also incredibly dangerous. Because Lila’s true love match is Cupid. The original bad boy of love. And he wants her. 

Now Lila’s once-normal teenaged world has exploded into a mythological nightmare overrun by crime-lord sirens, wrathful cupid hit men, magic arrows that cause no end of trouble, and a mischievous, not-so-angelic love god she can’t seem to stop herself from falling for . . .

This is going to be an extremely short, extremely blunt review.

The truth is, I hated it. As a book on Wattpad, I didn’t mind it, even though I skipped more than five chapters. After all, it’s Wattpad and not all the books are well written, fleshed out plots that make you want to continue reading. Sometimes, it’s just the storyline — because you want to see how it ends, not because you particularly give a hoot.

So as a book that’s being published? I don’t think it’s that great. At all. It’s one star, and I have never rated a book just a ⭐️ before, you know? It’s poorly written. I stopped reading after chapter five because nothing seemed different from the Wattpad version (which I skipped to the end of.)

The writing was subpar, boring and I just wasn’t hooked at all. There are other, way better, books on Wattpad that could have been selected for publication instead of Cupid’s Match.
