Lovestruck

$14.99

When sixteen-year-old cupid-in-training Kali sticks herself with an arrow and falls for her own target, there’ll be Hades to pay. To reclaim her heart and destiny, Kali will have to disobey the Gods, defy the Fates, and hope she doesn’t lose her best friend in the process.

Description

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.
