The Archangel Michael is tired. He fought wars and shoved his brother Lucifer out of heaven all before the Dark Ages rolled around. His role as protector of Israel now encompasses all of humanity, and while he performs his job perfectly, there’s little personal joy in it.
Until one night in a bar when he meets Asher.
Michael isn’t sure what it is about the vulnerable, self-deprecating Asher that calls to him, but something about his restrained depths, gentle smiles, and encyclopedic knowledge of flowers tugs at Michael in a way that can’t be denied. Too bad romance isn’t part of his mission.
Facing an eternity of perfect submission to God’s authority, rebellion stirs in Michael. Questions of free will, angelic vocation, and the role of love and lust demand answers that just might cost Michael his place in heaven.
Something is wrong with me. There, I said it. I was just not in love with this book at all. I’m thinking back to all the Leta Blake stories I’ve read and I think I’ve loved them all. This one I did not love. I think what it ultimately comes down to is the fact that I felt absolutely no connection whatsoever to the characters. And in all honestly I felt disconnected completely with the whole story. I didn’t feel the love between Asher and Michael. I felt the lust, for sure. These two were hot as HELL together but the emotional connection was lacking. I don’t know. I’m completely bummed because I’m one of those people that stalk her favorite authors for their new books and I was so looking forward to this one. It just fell short for me.
Archangel Michael’s newest mission is 40 year old virgin, Asher. While he feels the connection almost immediately with him he’s unprepared to fall in love and that’s exactly what happens. Michael knows he can’t stay with Asher but he also can’t stay away from him. So they build a life together all the while Michael knowing it can only be temporary.
There’s a lot going on in this little novella. It’s not terrible. The writing is great; I mean come on its Leta Blake!!
I just personally wasn’t feeling this one.
