Love curses don’t exist. At least that’s what Jonas, master of the meaningless hookup, tells himself when a letter warns him he’s an Eros Guardian cursed to endure a test of true love or forever be alone. His levelheaded longtime friend Cora figures it’s a revenge prank by an ex. The way Jonas stamps each girlfriend with a weeklong use-by date, it serves him right.
But when an impulsive kiss between the two friends reveals potential for more, Cora becomes the target of the Groth Maar: demons sent to wipe out the Eros Guardian line. And suddenly the curse becomes dangerously real.
Breaking the curse means Jonas’s biggest challenge yet. Failure guarantees Cora’s death. But success may cost him his own life…and the loss of his carefully guarded heart to the one girl far too sensible to fall for him.

I’d like to start off by thanking Netgalley, Entangled Teen, and Chapter by Chapter for giving me the opportunity to read this awesome book! I had been a little wary about participating in the blog tour only because I’ve been big on contemporaries without the fantasy aspect of other stories.
However, I fell pretty hard for this one! Mrs. Colmer writes beautifully and her writing just clicked for me. I’m really hoping that there will be a follow up since this ended with the possibility for a second story. However, given who that will most likely be about, I’m hoping that she’ll also explore the new relationship between Cora and Jonas.
I’m a complete sucker for these soulmate type storylines being the hopeless romantic that I am. But, this wasn’t one of those straight forward ones where the guy and girl kiss and automatically fall in love. They both had their own guards up but despite that, found each other in the end. I hope one day I’ll be lucky enough to find a Jonas of my own.
