LUCIAN DIVINE by Renèe Carlino Book Review and Blog Tour


S Y N O P S I S:

“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.

Ok so I haven’t read a paranormal romance since… wait for it…TWILIGHT! But Renèe Carlino is one of those authors that if she writes it, I’ll read it, and she wrote it, so I read it! 🙂 
I won’t say that Lucian converted me to be a paranormal lover for life, however I really did enjoy this story. Not only was it an awesome change of pace, a story I don’t feel like I have read time & time again, it was also just a seriously beautiful heartwarming love story. 
Lucian won me over from the start. I mean who wouldn’t fall for a drunk Guardian Angel, who’s whole calling is to stalk the girl of his dreams. 🙂 This book was fun, fast paced and I didn’t feel like it was predictable at all. I was on the edge of my seat especially throughout the second half of this book. 
The characters were fun, and real and enjoyable. It didn’t feel rushed or cheesy. I really enjoyed this book. 🙂
