Angel In A Book Shop by RJ Scott


 
What happens when a broken man has to trust in the impossible?
Chapter One, an antique book shop is the last tangible thing Josh and his mom have left of his dad. Nestled in a quiet square a few steps from London’s St Pauls Cathedral, it is boarded up with whitewashed windows and no new stock. The place is a sad reminder of loss and it has to go, but destroying a business that has been in his family for generations is not a role Josh is looking forward to.
 
Michael is the owner of Arts Desire, the shop next door. With his rainbow pride mugs and his sunny positive outlook he is the complete opposite to what Joshua thinks he needs in his life.
 
But, when Josh and Michael become friends, Josh learns that finding true love starts with making big decisions, and that everyone deserves their own Christmas miracle sometimes.
This is a really sweet romance between Josh who has made some mistakes and even though he was conned into doing stuff he shouldn’t have done, he’s laden with guilt and Michael, an angel sent to help Josh find his muse. Of course, Michael has been looking for the one human for thousands of years for whom he would become human and live just one life with.

 

Like I said, this was a sweet story, but I felt as though a couple parts were dropped. A secondary character was such a pivotal character and then…he wasn’t. And Josh was having panic attacks and went to a therapist to find out why…and we never quite found out why. Even though there were several ideas to choose from.

 

But, even with that, I thought it was a sweet, engaging story and would recommend it if you want a nice, sweet M/M romance.
