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.
Suzanne Selfors always brings some quirky and different twist to her books. Mad Love wasn't any different. This time Selfors brought Cupid and made him Errol, a swoon worthy, but very different boy, who seemed to have so much sorrow in his soul. His story of Psyche was sad, but explained who he was. This matched well with Alice, who while a teen, had to act like an adult really fast, because her mom who is bipolar. Bipolar runs in my family, so I like seeing how other people deal with it. The plot was interesting and kept me entertained. Selfors has created another cute and quick read with a unique twist that kept me entertained.
