First Quiver

Must read 🏆

A fun, naughty romp. Cupid is being punished for his childish pranks and he’s taking the world of mortals by storm.

What is the most exquisite torture for the god of love? Having him fall in love with someone he can’t have, and then make him find her true love...


This fun, very enjoyable read had me smiling throughout. Cupid has been naughty again, and the gods have finally lost their tempers with him, so he gets sent off to Earth, his baby body rapidly growing into a rather stunning adult manhood. This causes all sorts of problems as he breaks rules, gets into various scandalous scenarios, and experiences adult love for the first time. I found myself laughing out loud as he, and others, get a look at his grown up body and ... various parts.


There’s a fly in the ointment, though, designed by the annoyed gods above. Cupid (a.k.a Q) falls in love, hard, with a woman he is not allowed to have. Instead, he must find her true love and match them up. On Tinder. He even accesses OKCupid (because, why wouldn’t he?).


Hilarity ensues.


All in all, it’s a clever premise, carried out in a light, funny, and very competent way. Thoroughly enjoyable and just the sort of thing we all could use a read of these days.
