Silver Publishing, July 23, 2011

Being a guardian angel is Drake’s purpose, his destiny written irrevocably in the stars. Choice is not a part of an angel’s life and something Drake never considered before he finds himself unexpectedly thrust into watching over Grey. Drake’s new charge is just another human, except for one tiny thing, Grey can see angels. When Grey finds out that, unlike his previous angel, Drake will talk to him Grey becomes determined to pull Drake from the sidelines and into life.

The consequences of Drake being distracted from his duty result in a decision that changes everything. Despite the depth of their love, the future remains uncertain. Drake’s purpose stripped from him by a sacrifice made in love, he falls into despair. Only one thing can save him, but is their love strong enough to rearrange the stars and change Drake’s fate?

Guest review by SharonS.:

Let me start off by saying no matter what the shortcomings I might mention about this book, they don’t matter. I stayed up till 4:00 AM reading this book because I was enjoying it so much. There is no way I can’t give a book that entertains me this much anything but a 5 star rating. It might not be for everyone, I’ll explain shortly, but it was for me!

Angel stories are big right now, but I haven’t seen many m/m ones. So I was delighted to find this one, and Diane Adams was kind enough to send me an ARC. I was totally in love with the two main characters. Grey is a well adjusted gay man. He has been able to see Guardian Angels his whole life, but they never interact with him. He spends his evenings patrolling the streets and keeping his neighbors safe.

Drake is a guardian angel who has always been different from his brothers. He looks different, having hair and wings a different color. He also retains the memories of his charges while the other angels quickly forget theirs and move on to the next. Guardian angels don’t have the ability to feel emotions. This makes it easier to do their job. Drake knows nothing about love, touch or choice. He is very naïve (so you know how good this could get ;). Humans can’t see Guardian Angels who aren’t corporeal, so they can’t physically interact with the human world. Drake is surprised when Grey not only sees him, but can also touch him. Much smexy goodness ensues. I don’t want to give away too much about the plot.

The story is predictable and the prose is simple, but fast moving. It reminds me of YA, but this isn’t YA. The sex scenes are sweet and spicy. It would make a wonderful Yaoi graphic novel. Drake is very much a Uke with his innocence and need to be taken care of by Grey. I asked Diane Adams if she was a fan of Yaoi and was surprised to find she hasn’t read a lot of it :). The story is so sweet it will give you cavities!! I am a big fan of this kind of m/m story. If you like the ‘Gay For You’ and ‘OMG, they are so sweet’ type of story then you will be very happy with this.

  1. Yeah, any book that sucks me in completely and makes me not care very much about its shortcomings is a five-star read for me, too. :)

  2. I love books like that :D Staying up all night reading it says it all

  3. Stories which have such an effect on you like that don't need to be perfect! I've recently been wholly consumed by the Mayfair trilogy from Anne Rice. The memory of reading it still makes me sigh in deep content :)

  4. Thanks for the review, Sharon! I'm heading over to AllRomance ebooks as we speak. I can so use a sweet story that makes me forget about everything else, right now. And who can resist angels? Not me. :)

  5. I will be curious to see what you think of it Janna! It will give you a good idea of the kind of sappy m/m I like ;)

  6. Ack! You just made my reading pile bigger than it already was!

    Yeah for some reason nothing is sacred anymore. Angels are the new vampires!
