Book Review: Icon of the Indecisive by Mina V. Esguerra

(Interim Goddess of Love #3)

College student Hannah Maquiling, also temporarily working as the Goddess of Love, has had enough of everyone asking for her help when it comes to relationships. It’s her turn to find romance! She deserves it, after serving as matchmaker and confidant to everyone else in Ford River College for the past year. She’s had a crush on handsome senior (and God of the Sun) Quin forever, but he’s destined to fall in love with an extraordinary mortal woman, so she’s figured her chances with him have pretty much dropped to zero.

It’s not like she doesn’t have any options for a classic college romance though. There’s Diego, God of the Sea and Quin’s best friend/enemy. And regular guy Robbie is stepping up, making sure she knows how he feels about her. How hard can it be for a goddess to find someone to love, and be loved in return?

Book 1: Interim Goddess of Love review       Book 2: Queen of the Clueless review


Pffft. What a BS ending. I apologize Mina V. Esguerra. I love most of your books, but this finale, how it turned out? Just plain BS to me.

I was cheated. The twist on “soulmates” and “forever” was f*cking patronizing. Hannah was nothing but an opportunistic witch (b*tch?). After telling Guy #1 that she wants to pursue a relationship with Guy #2 at the moment, she asks Guy #1 to confirm if he loves her…?!!! Really? Really?!! A major WTF moment, I tell you.

I was so pissed. I was rooting for Hannah to be with the one she loves in the this final book, and what do I get? That terrible twist! That freaking promise of “forever”! (Hannah: But let me go out with this guy because I want to find out what its like. And since we are still going to end up in the long run, can you please give me a chance to play the field first?)! I. Don’t. Buy. It.

And Quin. I was disappointed with him. He waited all those year, centuries even, for his true love to wake up, and when she did, and she chose another guy, he’s alright with that. *deadpans* Where’s your balls, man? Your godly arrogance? I found it utterly ridiculous for a guy to let the love of his life go jumping the boat with another guy… So in the end, I am for Diego already. This guy knows what he wants, and he fights for it.

*big sigh* I am a hopeless romantic. I do. And love stories across lifetimes is a sure hit for me. Unfortunately, it did not work this time, with this book.

I loved Interim Goddess of Love, liked Queen of the Clueless, but Icon of the Indecisive? What a pain in the butt (and yes, I am still sore about it).
