Review: Lucian Divine by Renée Carlino

Published January 9th 2017

From USA Today Bestselling author, Renée Carlino, comes a totally unique and different love story that’s sure to make you question what’s really out there…or who.

“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.

My thoughts…

Lucian has been Evelyn’s guardian angel since she was born and has been there to protect her, love her, and keep her safe.  As Evey grew older his feeling changed, he fell in love with her and he was so troubled by his feelings, that he turns to drinking whiskey.

One evening at the neighbor bar, Lucian and Evey meet.  He is totally drunk and begins a conversation with her.  She takes pity on him and takes him home so that he can sleep off his drunker stupor.  He then revels himself to Evey, letting her know that he is her guardian angel. 

Lucian is in some serious trouble with God because he has broken all kinds of rules by revealing himself to Evey. He is ordered to erase himself from Evey’s memories, he does as he’s ordered.  Somehow his attempt was not 100% effective and she still remembers.  He asks to set up a meeting with God because he loves Evey and wants to be with her.  His friend angel gave him the idea to kill her/let her die so she could become an angel as well… they heard angel rumors of another angel doing that.  Lucian could never hurt and harm Evey, because he was there to protect her.

I enjoyed this book, it made me laugh out loud more times than I can count.  Lucian Divine was highly entertaining and a little sadness mixed in.

Happy Reading ~ Jovi
