“I’d die ten thousand deaths for you.”
“I would just stick around and try to collect smiles from her. I’d put them all inside myself and try to build my own little pathetic soul from the love she had given me.”

5 Stars of Reading Excellence!
Lucian is like a unicorn…unattainable but something you love and when you get a hold of it you just can’t let it go…no matter what the consequences may be.
PNR magnificence RIGHT HERE! Seriously even if you are not a fan of PNR you will fall in love with Lucian…your heart will bleed for his plight!
Ever seen a drunk Guardian Angel? There is some trademark Renee humor here but really this is a very heart felt story that will leave you on the edge wondering how it will ever work out. My heart was ripped out and bled for Evey…I felt every single tear.
Lucian is seriously one of a kind. He has always watched, always helped…always guarded..but somewhere in it all he fell and falling is forbidden.
“I’ll never give up. There is no God that can keep me from you. I’d die ten thousand times for you. I’ve been this thing, this being that no one believed in. I had no legacy. I had to be selfless for so long, then I found you and you always gave more than you took. When you were little, I used to think everything you did was amazing… I still do. I’ve loved you forever. You don’t understand that my life before you was nothing. You made me real. You made me exist… finally. I would take this pain all over again. I wouldn’t change anything.”
A very moving read about taking a chance where chances don’t exist. Fighting adversity and just loving..damn the consequences..damn the rules. Falling from grace is the best decision Lucian ever made…but it may also be his last.
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.
“Evey, next time, in the next life we’ll be together—that’s how this will be corrected. This will be righted. This can’t be our forever fate. Next time we’ll live together, we’ll die together. We’ll experience every war together, inside ourselves and outside in the world. We won’t be out of reach, unavailable, unattainable, just love longing to be. Let’s keep moving fast in opposite directions. Keep praying we meet on the other side. I’ll see you there; I know I will. I have to believe that. Watch for me. I’ll be barreling toward you, arms wide open, and then we’ll crash into each other with the force of two spent lives yearning to be one.”

“Evelyn, I’ve existed for more than two millennia. In two thousand years, I have watched over so many lives. At times, more than five souls were my responsibility alone. I’ve watched all of them die. I’ve held many of them while they were dying. It’s in my nature to do that, to give peace to my souls, to look out for them when I can, to sway the good ones to do the right thing, and to protect man and life here on Earth. I’ve watched over stunningly beautiful and brilliant women, but I have never felt love for any human the way I feel it for you. You are literally the air in my lungs.”
