Aiko (Heartstrings Book 1)
by Brooke May

I found this book to be fun, romantic, and unique. I loved how a lot of the laws include Aiko. Although she goes about things in a very unconventional way, I still thought she was sassy and really wanted to do the right thing. She night bend the rules a little but it’s for all the right reasons. I felt like her sisters were really hard on her ( not that they didn’t have good reason) but it would be interesting to get to know them better. I like Alejandro’s character as well, even the times I rolled my eyes at him. Over all I really enjoyed this book and I recommend reading this story.

Aiko by Brooke May

4 out of 5 stars

Aiko is the first book in The Heartstrings Series written by Brooke May and it’s the first book that I have read by this author but it won’t be my last. The story line is very different which I like and the characters are well written. I loved the little quirks they have.

Aiko is back after a forty-year exile. She has been given another opportunity to help humanity.
Alejandro Gomez is everything a woman could dream of in looks. His romantic abilities gyrate to the beat of mariachi. He is also Aiko’s new assignment.

Aiko is the worst cupid she is responsible for extermination of civilizations, plagues, and possibly the worst tragedy in human history may rest on her tiny shoulders.

Can Aiko help Alejandro find love or will she create another deadly consequence?

I simply enjoyed this story and I’m looking forward in reading the next book in this series?

Aiko (The Heartstrings Series Book 1) by Brooke May is a romantic comedy and a wonderful original idea. Brooke has written a winner with this story that drew me in from the start and I found myself getting lost in the story. You can;t help but fall in love with this cupid as she is unique and I found myself laughing out loud with her antics. Being the worst cupid out of all but is certainly not for the want of trying.

Aiko is once again on an assignment to help Alejandro Gomez find love but nothing ever goes quite like she would like.

You really need to grab a copy of this clever and interesting story. I know you will fall in love with it. I am counting down until I can get a copy of the next book. Well done Brooke.

Aiko – A Heartstrings Novel by Brooke May was a 4 star read for me. The book was about Cupid and his angels he has chosen to find love for humans. Aiko has had the worst possible luck in helping humans find love. She was recently found in the park watching a man name Alejandro make a fool of himself begging a woman not to walk away from him.
Well Aiko is called home by mother who really isn’t her mother but, is Cupid’s right-hand angel who acts like the mother. Brielle is the sweet loving mother figure of the sisters.
When Aiko speaks with Briella she finds out she can now take on assignments…her next assignment is Alejandro Gomez.
Aiko feels like she is fighting a losing battle with this guy. She has seen him in action and knows this will be a lot of work.
Aiko finds two possible women for Al to date. One is a perfect match and the other she is using to show Al the difference. Will Aiko be able to pull this off or will Al end up either with the wrong woman or possibly single? Aiko is being trusted with this task because Cupid and Briella both believe in her.

This was a cute story. I think the concept was very original. It’s about Aiko, who is a Cupid, needing to help Alejandro get together with the woman he is meant to be with. Alejandro, who is very good looking, has no clue when it comes to women. He is Aiko’s first case in forty years. She was exiled because she caused the worst tragedies in human history. Needless to say, this lead to some comical moments. I found the story to be entertaining with the twist of an unsuccessful cupid. The story is fun, light and filled with likeable characters.

Aiko by Brooke May was a sweet and comical quick read! I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. I could not stop thinking of Murphy’s Law while reading this book. Anything that could go wrong did go wrong for Aiko and Alejandro. Aiko slowly reveals her past and I could not stop my mind from trying to connect dots. I kept my fingers crossed for Alejandro the whole time!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about trying again. Aiko is a cupid that always seems to cause disaster. After so long of being a disappointment to her family, she is surprised when they give her another chance. She is given the assignment of a man called Alejandro who is unlucky in love. She struggles at first but soon finds her feet.But when things get complicated, can she achieve the impossible?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Aiko with her resilience but self doubts underneath or Alejandro stubborn but caring underneath. Great cast of supporting characters like the understanding Briella or the supportive Mala or the critcisng Seraphina.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the sense of colour throughout witg the pink dresses or purple eyes or red kimono bold and vibrant and eye catching and wonderfully written. Or the sense of up the cupids home with its clouds and gates for a sense of magic and mystery. Or the colourful scenes at the start with the bright tulips and beautiful garden and the music for the feel or romance gone wrong.
A great example of world building with a series of fantasy creatures coexisting alongside humanity with their own rules and laws and societies. I loved the use of the cupids as something different than other fabtays novels using angels. These were given the respect they deserve and true to their Greek origins. I also enjoyed the tale of an unsuccessful cupid, adding a sense of humanity to the character and making her struggles emotive. I also loved the hints to history like the library and troy adding a historical side to the novel, a wonderful addition. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.

Aiko was a wonderful read; it was funny, romantic and had likeable characters in it. It was an easy story to read and it didn’t take me long to get into it at all. I really liked Aiko, I thought she was such a great character to read about – she hadn’t had the best luck in the past with her job as cupid but I could tell straight away that it wasn’t going to be that way with her new assignment!
The author got it spot on with the world building in this story – her richly detailed writing definitely made the story come alive and I really did fall for the characters.
Aiko was a fantastic, light hearted read that I loved from beginning to end! This isn’t the first book that I have read by this author but it is definitely one of my favourites! I can’t wait to read more from Ms May again in the future!
