Unlovable: The Case Files of Dr. Matilda Schmidt
By: Cynthia St. Aubin
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Paranormal Mystery, Contemporary, Humor
It isn’t every day a sexy demigod throws a pissed-off Cupid onto psychologist Matilda Schmidt’s couch and informs her the fate of the world depends on her ability to get him off his diapered ass and back to helping people fall in love.
Just when Matilda convinces herself she’s not hallucinating, in walks a Vegas hit man with a big gun and a bigger threat: pay back the million dollars she owes a notorious casino mogul, or wind up as fish food in Lake Mead.
Rocketing across country with a gun to her head, Matilda has a dysfunctional love-god in her laptop bag, a million dollar debt she has no knowledge of, and must convince the seductive hit man he’s snatched the wrong woman before he convinces her he might be the right man—for a night.
Can Matilda stay alive long enough to keep love from becoming history?
My thoughts (Theo): “Unlovable” is a nice short story about laughing so hard that it might get hard to breathe. The characters have their own journey to show you, but their lines are so funny sometimes that you forget you were supposed to keep a side and just dive in and laugh right along them.
Matilda is your usual psychologist: hard to get, literally a V girl and someone not ready to crack a smile once in a while. She is solemnly focused on her job and only her job, forgetting how beautiful life can be. She is only one with her patients and that means zero social life for herself. Until one night when she is waking up, forged to get out of a heavy dream with some sort of a demi-god.
The best part is yet to come. The demi-god is not so unreal after all. Not when he is getting right through your front office door and demand you fix Cupid. Is he insane? You might be right, but in order to be right you have to explain the voice from your head last night. And that might be slightly uncomfortable when you are supposed to be the one curing those voices not hearing them.
But Matilda is funny and not as easily scared as she seemed in the first place. But then the unthinkable happens: Cupid really is an asshole and in need of her help, but some macho-big-guy-with-money from Vegas needs her back because she stole from her. She did what? She does not even remember doing anything remotely fun in the last years and this hit man thinks she is some hit-an-go-girl?
Will she be able to convince this ‘Whatshisface’ to leave her alone? To make him see that he grabbed the wrong person. And she definitely needs to make him believe her. But they don’t get along. At all, and the stupid C boy is there with them. Will they survive?
Happy readying everyone!
