Making Love

Making Love (2017) Aidan Wayne

Making LoveCarla wants to be cupid that finds and brings about True Love. But although her aim is perfect, her ability to figure out who to aim at… is much less so.

“Oh,” Carla said, abashed. She’d seen the travel match in both of their profiles and hadn’t dug deeper to see what kind they really liked.

When a succubus comes into the Aphrodite Agency seeking true love, she is thrown out unceremoniously. But Carly thinks Leeta truly wants to find love, and so decides to take Leeta on as a side project.

Although the words are never used, Carla is clearly demisexual.

Carla nodded, blushing hard. “I just felt really, um, awkward. Not that there’s anything wrong with sex,” she hurried to add. “Obviously! I just felt uncomfortable, um, looking at it?”

She repeatedly “fails” Chemistry and none of her matches ever take, because she just doesn’t “get” chemistry. And the idea of a cupid who didn’t really understand romantic love was kind of adorable.

The whole thing is ridiculously adorable, and I love that Carla’s being ace is the heart of the conflict of the romance–she doesn’t understand it, so she can’t see it when it’s in front of her.

The only weak part for me was the very end. I don’t think that Carla finding true love would have fixed her ability to “sense” chemistry between people. I felt like that was kind of selling short the work she did to understand chemistry.

But aside from that: cute and I love to see the ace rep!
