About the trilogy:
College sophomore Hannah Maquiling doesn't know why everyone tells her their love problems. She's never even had a boyfriend, but that doesn't stop people from spilling their guts to her, and asking for advice. So maybe it shouldn't be a surprise when the cutest guy in school tells her that she's going to have to take on this responsibility -- but for all humanity.
The Goddess of Love has gone AWOL. It's a problem, because her job is to keep in check this world's obsession with love (and lack of it). The God of the Sun, for now an impossibly handsome senior at an exclusive college just outside of Metro Manila, thinks Hannah has what it takes to (temporarily) do the job.
INTERIM GODDESS OF LOVE: While she's learning to do this goddess thing, she practices on the love troubles of shy Kathy, who's got a secret admirer on campus. Hannah's mission, should she choose to accept it, is to make sure that he's not a creepy stalker and they find their happily ever after -- or at least something that'll last until next semester. (As if she could refuse! The Sun God asked so nicely. And he's so, well, hot.)
QUEEN OF THE CLUELESS: If you've been feeling neglected by the Goddess of Love lately, don't worry -- Hannah Maquiling, college sophomore, is in training to take over. The Original Goddess is missing, but Hannah is Interim Goddess now, and she should figure out how to solve humanity's love problems soon. Quin (God of the Sun) is still her mentor, still really hot, but apparently isn't as honest about his other earthly relationships as she thought. It's frustrating, and enough to make her check out possibilities with Diego (God of the Sea) and Robbie (Cute Human).
In the meantime, she's decided to spend some of her precious training time helping to break up a relationship, instead of putting one together. Why? Because the girl in question happens to be her best friend Sol, whose boyfriend is stealing not just from her, but from other people on campus. Sol didn't exactly summon the Goddess, but this is what power over Love is for, right? Surely it's not just about matchmaking, but ending doomed relationships too. (Even when it's not what people want.)
ICON OF THE INDECISIVE: College student Hannah Maquiling, also temporarily working as the Goddess of Love, has had enough of everyone asking for her help when it comes to relationships. It's her turn to find romance! She deserves it, after serving as matchmaker and confidant to everyone else in Ford River College for the past year. She's had a crush on handsome senior (and God of the Sun) Quin forever, but he's destined to fall in love with an extraordinary mortal woman, so she's figured her chances with him have pretty much dropped to zero.
It's not like she doesn't have any options for a classic college romance though. There's Diego, God of the Sea and Quin's best friend/enemy. And regular guy Robbie is stepping up, making sure she knows how he feels about her. How hard can it be for a goddess to find someone to love, and be loved in return?
This is the 2021 edition.
Content Notes 2021
On HEA/HFN: This book is a young adult coming-of-age trilogy and establishes several possible love interests for main character Hannah. There is a Happy For Now resolution at the end of the trilogy, and an implied HEA for the gods.
On K-12: At the time that this was written and published the Philippines had an education system with 6 to 7 years of elementary and 4 years of high school. It was common then for an 18-year-old to be a sophomore in college.
As of today, the country’s system has switched over to K-12, so a sophomore in college would now be 20 years old. In this edition, the ages were not adjusted.
On the academic year: The Philippines is currently in the midst of an inconsistently applied change in the academic calendar. Some colleges now start their school year in August and end in May. Some have kept the June to March schedule. Ford River’s schedule here remains June to March.
Themes and content warnings: There are various references to sex and toxic relationships throughout the trilogy. There is some alcohol consumption. In part two (Queen of the Clueless), the subplot involves an abusive and manipulative partner, and there’s insinuation of a relationship between a teacher and a student. In part three (Icon of the Indecisive), there is a subplot involving cheating and self-harm.
