Stupid Cupid by Rhonda Stapleton

Genre: Teen Lit

Publication Date: December 2009

Author Website: www.rhondastapleton.com

One Word Review: Fun

First Line: “So”—Janet glanced down at my resume—“Felicity. You’d like to be a matchmaker. Can you give me more detail why?”

Synopsis: Felicity's no ordinary teen matchmaker...she's a cupid! Felicity Walker believes in true love. That's why she applies for a gig at the matchmaking company Cupid's Hollow. But when Felicity gets the job, she learns that she isn't just a matchmaker...she's a cupid! (There's more than one of them, you know.) Armed with a hot pink, tricked-out PDA infused with the latest in cupid magic (love arrows shot through email), Felicity works to meet her quota of successful matches. But when she bends the rules of cupidity by matching her best friend Maya with three different boys at once, disaster strikes. Felicity needs to come up with a plan to set it all right, pronto, before she gets fired...and before Maya ends up with her heart split in three.--GoodReads

Kathy’s Review: I really enjoyed this book; it was a perfect read for February. I liked the whole “cupid” angle and thought it was fun seeing Felicity matching her fellow classmates up. There were some funny scenes; one line pops into mind about apples that had me laughing out loud, which wasn’t a good thing since I was sitting at the DMV at the time. Felicity, Maya and Andy were fun to read about and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

I would have liked a little more background story on Cupid’s Hollow, the history of cupids, and maybe a better reason why Felicity was hired (like a family history, sheer talent…something). I also would have liked to see a few more matches, one a week was a little low and Felicity never really spent any time “in the office” or working on her profiles. I guess I would have liked to have seen her working more?

There is some swearing and one scene of underage drinking. But overall, it was really clean.

Reading Order:
Book One: Stupid Cupid
Book Two: Flirting With Disaster
Book Three: Pucker Up
