Dysfunctional: A Matilda Schmidt, Paranormal Psychologist Trilogy (#1) by Cynthia St. Aubin




Blurb : 

Unlovable
 
When Cupid gets stupid…
It isn’t every day a sexy demigod throws a pissed-off Cupid onto psychologist Matilda Schmidt’s couch and informs her the fate of the world depends on her ability to get him off his diapered ass and back to helping people fall in love. But first, she’ll need to convince a seductive hit man he’s snatched the wrong woman before he convinces her he might be the right man—for a night.

Unlucky
 
When luck runs out…
Accused of stealing gold from an infamous Irish street gang, Paranormal Psychologist Matilda Schmidt will die in exactly five days if she doesn’t cough it up—guilty or not. With minutes ticking away and her office overrun by a leprechaun who's loopier than he is lucky, Matilda makes a deal with a demigod—give him one night in her bed and he’ll help her locate the missing gold.

Unhoppy
 
When there’s not a hop in hell…
The day is going to hell in a hurry for Paranormal Psychologist Matilda Schmidt, and that's *before* a suicidal Easter bunny shows up for treatment. Hunted by two jealous goddesses who would gladly use her intestines to lace up their strappy sandals—and with her full-time hit man sometimes lover nowhere to be found—Matilda will have to save herself, or the world will be up River Styx without a paddle.



My review :
Are you having a bad day??? A bad week ??? A bad month???? Then these 3 books are for you! Unpredictable, funny, sexy and a bit of a crime involved….. 
What else could you possibly need?

 

On “Unlovable”, you have Cupid (who refuses to do his job), a demigod (who probably thinks too high of himself), a hit man [with a big gun (pun intended)] and Matilda, in the middle of this. 



Cynthia St. Aubin is orchestrating an amazing and original plot, which was missing from the paranormal shelf lately! 



It’s from those books that might be small, but you really understand why it can’t be bigger! And of course the cliffhanger, has you asking for more!!!!


I ended “Unlucky” thinking : “Oh, come on!!! Seriously??? But why???” (add some *pouting*, too!)



I found this book more serious than the first one, but it is still very funny!!
Let me explain myself. If this book was as light as “Unlovable”, then there would be no point in continue reading this series of books. But in this next installment, we get to learn a bit more about the characters involved and I find this to be a very nice evolution.




At the end, there is another cliffhanger and this time, it’s even better than the first one!! 

On “Unhoppy” we finally see all the way Cynthia has come since the first book. She never stays the same and that can be made perfectly clear in this book! ! Simply awesome!! 
The escalation from one book to the next, is amazing! 



Don't get me wrong, the book is funny (of course!!), but things do get serious! You see the characters evolving (baby steps, in some cases, but they're there!!) and that gives you the hope, that one day you will understand fully why they turned out that way. 
Once more, I was left craving for more! I know that I will get the next book, the moment it comes out and I will devour it, when my schedule allows me to!
The combined trilogy contains a bonus scene!!! Yep! You heard that right…. Want a taste???



I can now say, wholeheartedly, that I will always be Cynthia's fan, ‘cause she is one of the few that write paranormal with great sex scenes, while she has you rolling with laughter! The "humor" shelf did not have such a great addition, for a long time!
Love it! It’s a series of books I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of reading her books. ~ Kiki

About Cynthia St. Aubin
Cynthia St. Aubin wrote her first play at age eight and made her brothers perform it for the admission price of gum wrappers. A steal, considering she provided the wrappers in advance. Though her early work debuted to mixed reviews, she never quite gave up on the writing thing, even while earning a mostly useless master's degree in art history and taking her turn as a cube monkey in the corporate warren.
Because the voices in her head kept talking to her, and they discourage drinking at work, she started writing instead. When she's not standing in front of the fridge eating cheese, she's hard at work figuring out which mythological, art historical, or paranormal friends to play with next. She lives in Colorado with the love of her life and three surly cats.
Cynthia loves to hear from her readers!
