Lucian Divine
by Renee Carlino
This is a different genre for Renee Carlino and I was very intrigued.  I love this author, and I was very curious where this book would go.  
“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. 
This story was very different.  I was sucked in immediately.  Lucian is hilarious and sexy.  And Evey was a fun and strong character that you couldn't help but fall in love with.  This story is about finding love and overcoming the challenges that come with it.  It is technically a paranormal story, however, it is more about the relationship between Lucian and Evey than paranormal.  I loved this story, if you aren't really into paranormal than this one is for you.  It is sexy, funny, and heartbreaking.  I loved this book and highly recommend it.  It is live tomorrow, but is available for pre order now.
