“My guardian angel is a drunk.”

Evelyn Casey's life is at a standstill. She's in her mid-twenties, struggling with the dating scene in San Francisco. Nothing seems to be working out, and she’s starting to think that she’ll live out her days in her crummy apartment with her overbearing roommate, Brooklyn. It's absurd, but sometimes Evey longs for a guardian angel to show up and save the day.

And then he does. Seriously. His name is Lucian and he's a guardian angel, been on the job for two thousand years. His sudden presence in her life is both good—he's brilliant, witty, and warm—and bad—he's brilliant, witty, warm, and hot as ----. But as perfect as Lucian seems, he’s got problems of his own. He’s taken up drinking and he’s brazenly inserted himself into Evey’s life, going against the greatest cosmic law ever created.

For Evey, the rules are simple: You are not allowed to hook up with your guardian angel. But sometimes fulfilling your destiny requires a leap of faith, a confrontation with God.

Yes, God as in God.

I'll be honest: I'm not a fan of this author. I've read three or four of her books and haven't rated any higher than 3 stars (the overdone drama and angst...ugh), but I'm really intrigued with this one. 


  1. It is nice to see that you are willing to give an author that has failed to impress another chance. I am not that forgiving.

  2. I am really looking forward to this one but I have loved the books I have read from her.

  3. Oh I've done that. I'm determined with a few authors to find that great book I know is hiding somewhere. :)

  4. Added this to my list last week! I hope it's good. ;)

  5. I've read one book by this author, which I really enjoyed. This is definitely different but I'm excited about it.

  6. Ohhh sounds interesting, hope it works out better for you than her other books did!
