(Interim Goddes of Love #2)

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.)

Book 1: Interim Goddess of Love review


…should i switch to Team Diego? Haha!

I really was excited to read Queen of the Clueless. But the thing was, it left me with more questions than Interim Goddess of Love. And that made me a little frustrated. I believe this going to be a trilogy? So I wonder how Esguerra will cram all the answers in the final book, considering these are just short reads.. right?

LIKES. Diego getting more face time – I actually liked the guy! 😀 Hannah turning an opponent into her devotee – now, this turnaround was really good.

DISLIKES. Little (swoony) interaction between Hannah and Quin. Mysterious resistance to godlike powers of Sol. A new character with also a godlike power of his own.

The ending was very intriguing, though. Poor Hannah. Relying on her goddess dreams so much for her happiness. In turn, it made her clueless to what’s really going on IRL.

More Quin, please! and maybe a little Diego wouldn’t hurt, too. Ha!

Queen of the Clueless gave me the impression that if I only read books 1 and 3, I would still understand the story. Because I am not missing much on this book 2.
