Will the sins of the father be the sins of the daughter?

As Rae struggles with new friends, a new school and a star-struck forbidden love, she must also face the ultimate challenge: receive a tattoo on her sixteenth birthday with specific powers that my bind her to an unspeakable darkness.It’s up to Rae to undo the dark evilĀ in her family’s past and have a ray of hope for her future.


Yeah I am definitely getting out of my YA reads. This one was predictable but the writing was good. Had some of the YA tropes.

I found myself bored through the whole book. It was a good story and my sixteen year old self would have eaten this shit up but twenty- five year old me was rolling her eyes multiply times.

Don’t think I will continue with this series.

Signs of Cupidity by Raven Kennedy

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Pages: 255
Series: Heart Hassle #1
Genre: Reverse Harem, Fantasy
Rating: 4 stars


You’d think that basically being in charge of love would be an epic job, right? Wrong. Sure I can blow some Lust into people’s faces and watch the show, but I can’t actually participate. It gets old, trust me. Some goes for love. I can pass it out like sugar-free lollipops at a dentist’s office, but I can’t get any love for myself. It totally sucks.

I used to consider myself a hopeless romantic, so why wouldn’t I choose to become a cupid?Sounds like a good idea, right? Wrong again. They don’t call us stupid cupids for nothing. I’m stuck in this never-ending afterlife where I’m invisible, lonely, and bitter as hell. And yeah, I’m probably responsible for some terrible matchmaking out there. Sorry, not sorry.

All my bad cupid’ing might be why I was exiled from the human realm. You can only do so much before the cupid bosses get all huffy. Unfortuantely, my bitterness carried over into the new realm, and then I attacked a fae prince with Love Arrows. Accidentally. Okay, not accidentally. Bet hey, he deserved it. What I didn’t expect was for him to retaliate and hit my ass with some crazy magic mojo strong enough to push me into the physical realm. Whoa.

That’s right. This cupid just got a real body. And you know what that means… Now it’s my turn to get some. Love, I mean. Get your head out of the gutter. Wink, wink bitches.


This turned out funnier than I expected. Emelle is right behind Willa on my list.

I really like the author’s world that she had created. There were a few grammar mistakes but nothing that really jumped out and ruin the book.

I can understand why Emelle got bitter with her job. Having to live decades spreading love and desire and have no one to talk to, no one to fall in love with you. It would get extremely lonely. The best part is she is not alone. Many other cupids are in trouble but when she gets summoned to the Cupid council.

I am going to continue with this series. I found myself smiling at several scenes and of course if I had to choose a favorite of the guys it would be Evert. He’s just so funny and a huge flirt with Emelle.

Hopefully we get some more action in the second book.
