If you've been feeling neglected by the Goddess of Love lately, don't worry -- Hannah Maquiling, college sophomore, is in training to take over. The Original Goddess is missing, but Hannah is Interim Goddess now, and she should figure out how to solve humanity's love problems soon. Quin (God of the Sun) is still her mentor, still really hot, but apparently isn't as honest about his other earthly relationships as she thought. It's frustrating, and enough to make her check out possibilities with Diego (God of the Sea) and Robbie (Cute Human).
In the meantime, she's decided to spend some of her precious training time helping to break up a relationship, instead of putting one together. Why? Because the girl in question happens to be her best friend Sol, whose boyfriend is stealing not just from her, but from other people on campus. Sol didn't exactly summon the Goddess, but this is what power over Love is for, right? Surely it's not just about matchmaking, but ending doomed relationships too. (Even when it's not what people want.)
After reading Queen of the Clueless some weeks ago, I decided to finish reading the 3rd book in the series before writing my review because this book left so much for the next. But I can't resist the nagging feeling inside me that wanted to express my emotion. And that I think this book deserves a review now that I'm reading the last book of the Interim Goddess of Love trilogy.
Very early in the book, my heart bleed for right off the bat. I felt bad about Diego's past and wanted to be there to pat his shoulder. (He will probably just send me off, though. Haha :D)
As I continue, the lack of Quinn's reaction to Hannah's feelings for him made me tired of it. I even rooted for Robbie to get her until I saw the pool scene. I love, love the pool scene with Diego! I seriously can't understand how Hannah can withstand all that charm without drooling. I know I will. (Whispers sorry to my husband ^^) and oh my god, Hannah's first kiss made me want to jump around the room screaming if only it weren't past midnight already.
Lastly, Robbie was really cool in this volume. I wish that he'll find someone to love him back in the last book. Quin is... I don't know, mysterious (I guess) but I still wish for Diego and Hannah together.
