Cupid is a Psychopath
One of the most creative books I’ve read in a long time, Cupid is a Psychopath is sure to leave readers with many chuckles. I am not a fan of grocery store romance novels; however, the main character in this book, Wetta Vane, absolutely loves them. In fact, she has been reading a book in a series about wealthy billionaires and how women marry them by making the billionaire fall in love with them. Wetta is a very silly girl and, while discussing it with her Aunt Gertrude, she tells her aunt of her plan to woo the man who owns the trailer park they live in so that she can save her aunt’s home and become the wife of wealthy billionaire Veego Drake.
Wetta is a virgin and is saving herself for Veego. She has a list of rules that she knows a good lady always follows. But, as Wetta makes her way to Drake, everything that could go wrong does. Drake’s assistant/bodyguard has plans to destroy him, there is a mass salmonella outbreak in their city and, on top of that, when Cupid strikes Veego, he has a very comical and delusional reaction to Cupid’s arrow. He thinks he is the main character in Wetta’s book, Prince Giannis Constantinopoulous, and confuses his cleaning lady for the main character in the book.
The story is easy to follow and features a cast of characters that will keep you guessing. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading it but soon I was hooked into the plot and wanted to see how everyone would end up. Veego Drake is your standard cocky billionaire, and Weeta is the dumbest of all dumb girls. I was laughing out loud while reading this book because the characters were so funny, both in their actions and their dialogue. The author even threw in a group of dwarves to further stir the pot.
Cupid is a Psychopath is a fun adventure that is part fairy tale and part modern-day billionaire versus thug story. The overweight cleaning lady, Myrna, is also quite funny, as she also has her own motive for being involved in Veego’s life. It is a book that will have you chuckling until the very end. A great little piece of comic relief when you want to escape the real world. I would recommend it to fans of parody and slapstick.
