About the Book:
When you're the daughter of the bestselling Queen of Romance, life should be pretty good. But 16-year-old Alice Amorous has been living a lie ever since her mother was secretly hospitalized for mental illness. After putting on a brave front for months, time is running out. The next book is overdue, and the Queen can't write it. Alice needs a story for her mother-and she needs one fast.

That's when she meets Errol, a strange boy who claims to be Cupid, who insists that Alice write about the greatest love story in history: his tragic relationship with Psyche. As Alice begins to hear Errol's voice in her head and see things she can't explain, she must face the truth-that she's either inherited her mother's madness, or Errol is for real.
Mad Love was a very inventive and creative story about a young girl that meets Cupid. Not at all the romance that I had envisioned when faced with a story about Cupid, but it still turned out to be a very promising read. Cupid is supposed to be a mythological creature that brings forth love, but I was very impressed to see this character as a very cut throat and malicious character. He was not the loving and caring Cupid that I believe many would anticipate, and what it appears he created in people was more lust than love. It seemed that this was more a story within a story. One part romance for this young girl, and another part meeting Cupid and beginning a journey through his past. Much to my surprise the whole Cupid story was a bit more menacing than I had first anticipated, but I blieve it gave this story a depth that would not have been possible without the twists in the myths. As a whole I believe the story tied together very nicely in creating an entertaining read that all readers can enjoy.

You're right, through all the fun and excitement, the Cupid story was a real slap in the face. It was so.....wait, I can't give away the story. ^_^ Great review, it fits the book perfectly!
