“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.

Now when I first started it I couldn’t put it down, but being completely honest I got to a certain percentage of the book and came to an abrupt stop. I felt like I couldn’t read anymore of the story. I started to get a little worried because I love Renee’s writing and she’s such a beautiful story teller, I desperately wanted to love this book! Well I am so glad that I made myself continue on or I would have been kicking myself that I never finished it! This book took me by complete surprise and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Just because it’s not her usual form of writing doesn’t mean you won’t like it. Renee went out of her usual comfort zone of story telling and nailed it! I cannot recommend it enough! If like me you feel like you get so far and the story doesn’t feel like it’s pulling you in, trust me when I say persevere and push through because this is a beauty of a story and Renee tells it so well and you will SO be missing out if you don’t!
