BOOK REVIEW for "Hit by the Cupid Stick (Brimstone Inc., #5)" by Abigail Owen

Hit by the Cupid Stick
(Brimstone Inc #5)
by Abigail Owen

All’s fair in love and… whatever this is.

This Valentine’s Day, when a cupid accidentally shoots himself with his own arrow, he falls for a siren whose only job is to lure men to their deaths.

Charismatic and irresistibly fun, Chance Eroson is a cupid who gets a kick from pairing odd couples and being right about them. Used to getting his way, the only person who shuts him down is the siren who has ruined more than one of his pairings before they started. But his bigger problem is he wants her. He’s always wanted her.

Elodie Sirenian uses her power for good, only hunting evil men. But after so long, and so many horrible people, her cynicism has settled deep inside. She can turn on the charm when she doesn’t mean it, and they fall for it. Every single one. Every single time.

Except Chance. He’s the only person — man or god — who has ever challenged her.

But a cupid’s magic is temporary. There’s no way a true love match is possible. Not this time.

****(4) out of 5 Stars

Studying auras was like a siren's road map of the human soul, telling her the most important information of who and what a person was in that moment.

This was a delightful little fantasy romance tale about a seemingly ill-matched couple.  Set near Valentine's Day and involving a cupid, it would be the perfect read around the season of love.  But, really, it makes for a good story any time of year!

His siren was a closet geek, and he sort of loved that about her.

Chance has been crazy about Elodie for ages, ever since their first meeting.  Truth be told, she had been hopeless attracted to him for just as long; not that she'd ever admit it, especially not to herself.  But with the excuse of the love arrow that impaled them both, she at least had some cover to let loose and enjoy some intimate time with Chance.     

Sirens were off limits for other supernaturals to kill.

And enjoy it they did!  There are some mighty toasty scenes that occur within this story, that's for sure.  But there is also the development of a deeper connection between these two.  As well as some outside intrigue and danger.  Definitely a book that I recommend for a fun, romantic, dirty, and sweet read, all on the way to their very own happily-ever-after!

I received a free eBook copy of this title from the Author,
and have willingly provided an honest review.
