~*♥Blog Tour with Review♥*~ Lucian Divine by Renee Carlino




“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.

Series or Standalone: Standalone
Rating: ★★★★
Reviewer: Diane

From the first line of the blurb " My guardian angel is a drunk" I knew I needed to read this story. I generally don't read paranormal stories, they are just not my cup of tea. If I take into account an amazing author combined with an enticing blurb, I just couldn't not get it. Trust me, 5 stars isn't nearly enough for this phenomenal story.

Evey is always dating the wrong kinds of men. That is until she mets drunken Lucian, her very drunk guardian angel. That's all I will say. I don't want to ruin this journey by revealing too much. It needs to be experienced first hand.

Besides making me cry some gut wrenching tears, it was also very funny. A flying drunken angel, that's pretty hilarious. I loved both of these amazing characters but Lucian is in a category of his own and one I will unlikely forget anytime soon. Some parts of this story broke my heart into millions little pieces but with the author's amazing ability to give me an happy ending, managed to put a smile on my face.

Beautifully written with heart combined with a storyline so unlike anything I've ever read before, gave me one of the best paranormal story ever read.

This story is a standalone told in a dual POV with an happy ending. I strongly recommend this paranormal romance. Renee's other books are worth the readers time and money also.
