I absolutely LOVED this book. I must admit that it isn't normally something I would have read but being a big fan of Erica Orloff's I of course picked it up. The whole story is fantastic! I really enjoyed the whole idea of soul mates, do they exist and are they meant to be for real or only a dream of one. The ending was great and not entirely expected because I thought it might go in a different direction but either way would have been fine with me. I laughed out loud trying to imagine Albert Einstein in a bar listening to ABBA and the thought of a female higher power was a good idea too. I look forward to the next wonderful book by Ms. Orloff.

I have never read this author before & I was in the book store yesterday 5 minutes from closing I could not find anything to read, so I grabbed this book because I loved the shoes the girl on the cover was wearing. Once I started reading I could not put this book down. The story was different and fresh, you didn't read the first chapter and know exactly how it was going to end. Jules was a perfectly flawed hero. Not only was it a fun book to read, after I put it down I wanted to discuss it with someone because it raised so many interesting questions; Is GOD female? Is there such a thing as soul mates? This book is definitely a keeper.

No, it's Julian Shaw, the nastiest man on radio. Such a pig, in fact, that someone shoots him in the head for pissing him off too much. And that's when the good stuff starts. Shaw must help a woman who has had quite possibly the worst day in ANYONE'S life (poor Honey - the Yorky, not Kate)) get herself together and live, or else he goes to hell.

Most definitely one of the best comedy-yet-serious books I've ever read. I was looking for a ghost story, and in a way this is, but it's a story about how the even the cruddiest man in the world can be redeemed, and how a woman who has seemingly lost it all can start living again. And maybe they can save each other.

The dialogue between all the celestial characters in heaven, hell, and a certain bar is hysterical. Hell's Kitchen takes on new meaning. You would be surprised who from our pop-culture is hell-bound. Comb overs are a definite no-no (hear that Donald?). Also, God is a woman. Seriously. Haven't encountered that before and I thought it was cool. Satan goes by the name of Lou. And Albert Einstein wasn't all about...stuff no one else can understand.

As a New Yorker who was at the Trade Center on 9/11/01, I very much felt what Orloff was writing about what happened on that day. I think she must be a New Yorker as well to be able to describe the hole that was ripped into our hearts as a city.

So fun to read - this book is a little detour from Orloff's typical novels, including all the substance & romance typical of her books and adding in whimsy and humor to make the book addictive fun! A book that questions the meaning of life and our own mortality - along with Albert Einstein in drag ... need I say more?

Hot and steamy New York has book editor Katie Darby taking a taxi instead of the subway. She and her cabby discuss God's sense of humor even as his radio is blasting the raunchy show of Julian Shaw. When she arrives at her boyfriend's apartment she finds him with her best friend. Crying she leaves in the same cab that brought her over only to find someone busted in and robbed her apartment and her dog is missing. All this occurs right before the anniversary of her father's death and now she is hearing voices in her head demanding she do things she never would even think of doing.

Julian Shaw loves being a "pervert" and enjoys making a living from a life of depravity and decadence. However, he has made numerous enemies especially from the moral right and from family members of his "guests"; one of these zealots shoots him. Julian falls into a coma, but in his comatose state, voices demand he assist Katie find a better life; the stakes are his soul. He figures how hard this can be until he tries and falls in love with her; now if it means his eternal soul so be it because kissable Katie is his for the rest of his albeit seemingly short life.

This superb romantic fantasy is filled with whimsical love as matchmaking seems to come from beyond. Katie and Julian are opposites and in fact she makes it clear to her taxi driver what she thinks of the city's top rated pervert. Fans who relish something refreshingly different will enjoy the aptly titled FREUDIAN SLIP as the antihero finds his soul and heart when he decides to become the champion of love instead of depravity.

This was an absolutely, 100% delightful book. The characters are easy to love, interesting, funny. The story line is fun but has depth -- you've got basic good vs. evil, you've got love, you've got deception, betrayal, and a little bit of suspense while you hold your breath hoping things turn out okay. Oh, and all the soul mate stuff? Yeah, that made me swoony. Wonderful, wonderful read.

I heard a lot of good things about this author, so I was a little let down because I was expecting something more out of the writing. The story line was super cute and the characters just flawed enough for me to enjoy, so it was good. I will read more of Orloff, but this one was just so-so.
