Complete Nothing by Kieran Scott
"True is not exactly loving New Jersey. Banished from Mount Olympus and tasked with helping couples find love without using her powers, the goddess-formerly-known-as-Cupid is having a tough time. Especially now that True’s immortal love, Orion, has also appeared at her New Jersey high school—but with no memory of their relationship.
To distract herself from seeing Orion flirt with another girl, True focuses her efforts on making a match: Peter and Claudia. Peter is the star quarterback and the most popular guy in school. But he’s insecure about his future, so he preemptively dumps Claudia, his girlfriend. (If she won’t want to be with him later, why stay together now?) Claudia doesn’t take the breakup too well, and she’s ready to show the quarterback of their rival school just how ready she is to get over it.
But True sees something in these two seniors. She believes they should be together—but can she help them find their way back to each other (and get herself closer to home)? Or have things already spun too far out of control?"- summary from Amazon
I am a huge fan of Scott's books and I absolutely adored this follow-up to Only Everything. I loved seeing True and Orion slowly getting to know each other (and usually at the embarrassment of True). The couple that True works on in this novel are wonderful and I think the way that Scott writes these books really helps. It goes between three different characters- True, and then the boy and girl of the couple being worked on. This really allows the reader to get into the heads of these characters and see exactly what they are thinking and feeling and why they are doing what they're doing. Scott really gets into the heart of different kinds of relationships through these books and it makes me eager to see what happens in Book 3.
Overall, such a great second book in this trilogy and it's going to be sad when I finish the final book.
