“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.

It is no secret that Renee Carlino is one of my all time favorite, must read authors. So when I saw she had a new book to review, it was a no brainer and I jumped at the chance. I will say that this book did not disappoint but was very different from the usual Renee Carlino books. Now different isn’t always bad, and in this case it turned out to me a very good thing. Still a wonderful love story that you have come to expect with Renee’s work, this book adds a little bit of a paranormal aspect to it. If you don’t normally read paranormal please give this one a chance, it still has all the normal contemporary romance feels, just with a little added twist.
Renée Carlino is a screenwriter and bestselling author of contemporary women’s novels and new adult fiction. Her books have been featured in national publications, including USA TODAY, Huffington Post, Latina magazine, and Publisher’s Weekly.
