Cupid, the son of Mars,has made Zeus's son, Apollo, look like a fool for falling in love with Daphne, the river goddess, so Zeus demanded he be taught a lesson.  Trying to think up a suitable punishment for him is difficult, but Mars thinks he has just the thing.  Make two mortals who are oil and water fall in love.  Will Cupid be able to bring together these two who loathe the very sight of each other, and have them fall in love?

 

Diana loves being a reviewer for the reputable newspaper, the Daily Chronicle, but she simply hates reviewing pianist Elliot Loomis. She keeps getting his concerts as her assignments, and she can't help but speak the truth in her reviews, after all she can't lie to the public. She finds the music insipid, and the man an overbearing, arrogant womanizer. She cannot understand why this cad has such a huge following, the fans flock to his concerts and the woman throw themselves at him. It's sickening really.

 


Elliot Loomis detests Diana Carson with every fiber in his body. He especially hates her scathing reviews of his work. Why she has it in for him, he can't understand but he has had enough; he is going to have it out with her, once and for all. When he narrowly misses catching up to her in a parking lot, he is about to leave when he notices a flyer that Diana had dropped when getting into her car. A flyer that personally invites him to Hank's House of Hororscopes where he would supposedly meet his true love. Unable to resist the pull of this mysterious flyer, he goes to Hank's and gets the surprise of his life.

 

 

Will Cupid be successful and show these two that opposites do attract? That in spite of what they think, and feel for each other, destiny is at hand and about to show them a love they never dreamed possible.

 

CRITIC'S CHOICE by Erica DeQuaya is an interesting erotica novella that coyly manages to combine mythology and real life. If you're looking for something different from the norm to read, I encourage you to give CRITIC'S CHOICE a try.
