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.
Warnings: this novella contains urban fantasy, wings, angels doing unangelic things, erotic content, and playful blasphemy.
I had a couple personal reservations about this book, but seeing as how I’m a fan of Blake’s books, I put them aside and still read this book.
Overall, I did enjoy the story. While I don’t usually read M/M books that have anything to do with Angels, I was shocked at how much I enjoyed this book. The characters were fun and enjoyable, the storyline is one that I haven’t read before (obviously), and it was a very well put together book for me overall.
Asher was a character that was written so … he was so normal. So sweet yet real that I really enjoyed him. Of course Michael’s character was one that was almost exactly as how I expected him to be. But the way he was with Asher was what shocked me. He was so sweet and loving with him. That made the book enjoyable for me.
Overall, I would say that if you have been on the fence about reading this book because of the Angel and religious aspect of the story, then I would give it a shot.
