[Book Review] Interim Goddess of Love


College sophomore Hannah Maquiling doesn't know why everyone tells her their love problems. She's never even had a boyfriend, but that doesn't stop people from spilling their guts to her, and asking for advice. So maybe it shouldn't be a surprise when the cutest guy in school tells her that she's going to have to take on this responsibility -- but for all humanity.

The Goddess of Love has gone AWOL. It's a problem, because her job is to keep in check this world's obsession with love (and lack of it). The God of the Sun, for now an impossibly handsome senior at an exclusive college just outside of Metro Manila, thinks Hannah has what it takes to (temporarily) do the job.

While she's learning to do this goddess thing, she practices on the love troubles of shy Kathy, who's got a secret admirer on campus. Hannah's mission, should she choose to accept it, is to make sure that he's not a creepy stalker and they find their happily ever after -- or at least something that'll last until next semester. (As if she could refuse! The Sun God asked so nicely. And he's so, well, hot.)

Rating: ✮✮✮✮


When I first started reading this book, I immediately stop after a few page. It didn't make sense (at least that time.)

For #BuwanNgMgaAkdangPinoy, I decided to take this book and give it one more chance. And I still feel that it didn't make sense, not for the same reason as the first, but rather I was questioning myself why didn't make sense for me before because this book is great!

I love Quin but after Diego and Hannah's first talk my inner fangirl was screaming that they'll be together. I agree with Sol, Diego is better! He just has that effect. Besides, I feel a great chemistry between him and Hannah.

The story ended nicely in HFN, understandably so as this book is not only about the Interim Goddess but also many other students at the Ford Academy. I'm looking forward to reading the next book.
