“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.
I am so freaking glad I took the time to read this amazing book. And I am kinda sad that this is my first book by Renee Carlino. And I still can’t believe that I read this book in around 5 hours without taking a break, except for a coffee. I still can’t believe how wonderful and amazing the journey of this book was.
LUCIAN DIVINE is very exceptional, and beautifully written story about unconditional love , beauty , passion and humor . Lucian Divine is categorized as a paranormal romance , but let me tell you it’s just as brilliant as contemporary, maybe even more. To those who have never read a paranormal romance, have to tell you to open your mind and read this beautiful. I really highly recommend it to everyone. This book is truly a masterpiece and the talent this author is astonishing.
Lucian has been a guardian angel for almost two thousand years and never has a soul, a person he’s protecting affected him so much. he shouldn’t have fallen in love with Evey. He shouldn’t have felt the feelings he has for her. Lucian has been protecting and watching over Evey since the moment she was born. And by the time she grew into the woman she was today, he was in love with her, every part of her. But guardian angels shouldn’t, couldn’t fall in love with the person they are watching over, but he couldn’t stop himself. He was in love with her and he would do anything to be with Evey, even if it means breaking God’s rules, by revealing himself to Evey and telling her that he’s her guardian angel. He never expected that in short time Evey would feel the same about him. He was surprised and he fell more and more in love with her, until he realized that he couldn’t live without her anymore. he no longer believed in the rules God has set, because to him Evey meant more than anything. Let me tell you I loved Lucian so much, he was perfect and wonderful. I loved the way he shows his love for Evey, the way he describes his feelings for Evey, I loved every little part of him. Renee did an amazing job with Lucian, and he’s part of the story.
Evey has had her fair share of bad luck and bad love, and she’s ready to put all of that behind her. For a few years now, she has been living in San Francisco with her roommate Brooklyn, trying to make it in fashion industries. After one disastrous date after another, she decided to take a pause from dating, until she meets a handsome drunk man, who claims to be her guardian angel. Immediately she thinks that he has lost his mind, and that she was stupid to invite a crazy person into her apartment, but when he disappears and appears with a second, she can’t help but believe him. But after some time Lucian decided that is better to erase her memory and leave her alone, even if it kills him to be away from Evey, but it all backfires when Evey starts remember her guardian angel, the man she kinda fell in love with. So when he appears infront she begs him to never leave her again, and slowly she falls more and more in love with her guardian angel.
But as the time passes and their love grows, the problems become to much to avoid, and the more it affects their love. Will they be able to fight for each other, or will they lose each other too soon?
I don’t have many words to describe how much I liked, loved this book. It was so unique and original, and really worth of reading and enjoying.
