Renee Carlino is testing the waters; pushing the boundaries of Contemporary Romance so to speak. I always wonder how she will top her last works with each new release. This go around I only have two words:
Carlino has a knack for eloquent storytelling, combined with such rich, vivid depiction, providing the reader with a truly ethereal and realistic experience. No questions are left unanswered while merging the celestial and human realms throughout this book. Renee Carlino has generated a refreshing worldliness to her works with the addition of Lucian Divine, in what I like to call paranormal infused contemporary romance. You seriously cannot go wrong by indulging in the heavenly prose within. This is an unforgettable story, one so truly breathtaking, heart warming and soul crushing, with many lessons to be learned. This story will consume and own you. Everything combined makes this hands-down her best work to date!
'The moment you all in love, you become acutely aware of all the different ways the person you love can die. It's sickening. It's morbid and painful and heart-wrenching, and it's all totally, completely worth it.'
This is not a religious book, like at all. It's simply the beautifully tale of a human falling in love with her other-worldly guardian angel. The whole 'what if' plays a huge part in the story of Lucian and Evey. Of course, there are rules that need to be followed. What fun is fiction if you can't break a few? lol
'No one should be punished for giving love and getting it in return, even if others think it's wrong. How can two able-minded adults loving each other ever be wrong? It makes no sense.'
There are so many layers to uncover and be revealed in Lucian Divine. This is a story that will open your heart and expand your mind. Delivered in such a way that you cannot help but fall in love with not only Lucian and Evey, but all the supporting cast of characters. Who knows, that little 'loop-de-loop' might make you fall in love with "the big guy upstairs" as the most heart warming and awe striking finale is played out. Yeah, I had to pick my jaw up off the floor! Gah!! It was just so hauntingly beautiful!!
'I don't know whether I'm alive or dead, in heaven or hell or if any of this is even real. I just know that I love you...'
Lucian is now my favourite of those that I have read. I went into this one expecting to like it because I love Renee's style of writing. What I didn't expect was to laugh out loud so often, it is genuinely funny! I mean come on, who wouldn't love the idea of a alcoholic guardian angel - if I had one, I'm sure mine would be!
Being mostly atheist, I was surprised that I did enjoy the religious elements to the story (it's about angels, it had to be in there), they are handled with good humor.
I definitely recommend this book for anyone looking for something different.
Renée delivers again with Lucian Divine. It is different from her other books but to me, it is one of her best works. Lucian Divine is witty, sexy, emotional, and thought provoking. Lucian's sense of humor had me cracking up from the very beginning. His sense of humor and outlook just makes you instantly fall in love with his character. Evey and Lucian's story is sweet down to the very core. Even if you aren't a believer in love, it will make you believe and see that love is possible, even when the odds are against you.
Be prepared to fall in love with Lucian and Evey and perhaps begin to wonder about what kind of guardian angel you have hanging around? If mine was Lucian, I wouldn't complain.
At it's heart, Lucian Divine is about star crossed love. Lucian, a guardian angel, breaks all the rules falling for his charge, Evey and even more so by telling her. Their love is not meant to be and this line is probably what caused the most tears:
"Evey, next time, in the next life we'll be together—that's how this will be corrected. This will be righted. This can't be our forever fate. Next time we'll live together, we'll die together..."
Argh!! See what I mean? I don't want to spoil anything but the story has it's ups and downs emotionally. I felt like I was on a rollercoaster. Lucian is adorably neurotic and so sexy. He is far from perfect but watching him learn what it means to love gave me all the feels. Evey is a sweet heroine and the pain she and Lucian go through to try and be together is heart-wrenchingly beautiful.
Renee did a great job developing the characters and throwing in some light moments like the Star Wars Bar. I totally wish that was real! I won't lie, the emotional upheavals were frustrating at times but I love angst so it really worked for me. This story isn't pretty but I loved it.
This is contemporary fantasy because of the Guardian Angel aspect so keep in mind you have to suspend belief a bit. I love fantasy and paranormal so again, not an issue for me. But if you're a fan of this author don't expect something exactly like her other books. Renee took a risk with this and for me, it paid off. Highly recommended!
