BLOG TOUR + REVIEW: Cupid’s Desire by Phoenix Rayne

Genre: Fantasy Romance
Publisher: G Street Chronicles
Alareik is a Cupid, and get that image of a diapered baby with a bow and arrow right out of your head. Cupids are all six foot Gods of love, invisible to the mortal’s eyes, who are sent down to Earth with their daily assignments…to help mortals fall in love.
Alareik is the most popular Cupid out there, and not only is he the hottest Cupid but he’s the most compassionate. Alareik stumbles across a mortal who has a third eye. Sapphire, a waitress no one would take a second glance at, can see the invisible Cupids. Alareik has never met a mortal who could do this. He’s put on a special assignment to figure her out.
Alareik willingly accepts this task and finds himself falling for the plain and peculiar girl. Sapphire’s love for life changes this Cupid’s heart forever.


This story was different.  I enjoyed the concept and the fact that it was solely in the male lead’s POV as with most books the female’s POV dominates in the romance genre.  I had a tendency to lose my understanding of the plot.  Everything was happening so fast I had to re-read pages sometimes to try and get back on track.  There were a couple of times that I just didn’t understand what had just happened. I enjoyed Alareik’s character.  He was a gentle soul and I got a kick out of his constant reference to “the beast” in his pants…that was a first for me in all my reading.
I liked how the story started out giving the reader a glimpse of Alareik’s daily Cupid duties.  It was insightful.  The storyline itself was cute but it needed more.  The plot could have been “slowed down” a bit and been given more details as to what was happening. Characters were introduced so quickly (almost rushed) as the story progressed that you don’t really have the opportunity to connect with them.
The story’s ending did give me the impression that there may possibly be a follow up so I’d be interested to see where the story goes, if that’s the case.
