“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 don't know what I was looking for, but I found it in this book. I know I was looking something to get my mind of other things and it worked. Mission accomplished. This book did perfect for my job description. No, seriously, there wasn't another book that I would like to read at that time.

I have been thinking in what more to write, so I am kind of stuck. Let's go for describing a little about the book. It is fantasy, but contemporary romance and a little bit paranormal. It is about angels, yes, the real feathery ones. No, we do not seen God. Why doesn't he appear on books or series, only movies? (Just wondering). And like every book about angels, this celestial being falls in love with a human, a mere mortal. This time around he starts to decay and this mere human is his only hope to hang on faith. Evey must be the angel then, right?

Good story, plot, characters and... no, not ending. I am kind of mad of how everything ended. But overall it was a good book. I just wished for more. You see, we don't actually see the happy ending at the very last epilogue, we are just told that they are lucky and they will be happy. I didn't like that. I wanted proof, babies, something, but nada.

I don't know if this a good book for anyone, it is not something I would recommend. But if you are down and want something sweet, then go ahead. If you are just bored and don't have anything to read, then go ahead. Otherwise, keep scrolling. Adiós.
