“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.

The best way I can describe this story for me is hopeful. This story lifted my spirits. It made me laugh. I swooned for a drunken Guardian Angel!!
I absolutely loved this story. It was beautifully written and creative and the characters are some of my favorite that have been written this year.
I enjoyed the relationship between Evelyn and Lucian. I was rooting for them throughout the entire book. This book was so different.
I am in love with the books I have been reading lately because they have all offered something completely different and something that will stand out with me forever. This book is definitely an example of this.
The faith, the hope, the love, the fun and the angst are all perfectly shown in this story and I could not put it down. I am so in love with Renee's writing and I cannot wait to read more!
