Blurb:  On a blustery November day in London, Gavin catches a bus from Waterloo Station to his office. He makes this journey five days a week, year after year, alone. Or so he thinks.

He does not know that his guardian angel accompanies him each day of his life, watching over him—loving him as all guardians must. His guardian’s feelings, however, fall into baser depths. As all guardians know, it is taboo to feel carnal love for a human ward. Such a relationship would not be viable—or healthy. Gavin’s guardian knows this. Lives and breathes this. And yet, to lift Gavin from depression, he is willing to attempt the impossible: to manifest as a human for Gavin and finally meet the love of his immortal life face-to-face.

Review: This is a short story and I don’t want to give it all away but… be warned the ending is NOT what you’d expect and though it might be considered a HEA… I’m not really happy with the ending at all.

Gavin is a guy who has lost his love – broken up, not deceased – and is feeling depressed and lost in life. His guardian angel has developed deep feelings for him and really wants him to get out of his funk so he manages to manifest himself in the physical realm to help him out.

That is all I can say without spoiling things, but… it’s not what you think will happen… at all.

I didn’t care for the direction the story went and found the writing awkward and hard to get into. It’s told from the angel’s point of view and it’s very British and maybe some of the writing was done intentionally as bursts of emotion to demonstrate the depth of feeling… but it didn’t translate well for me.

I can’t recommend this and I didn’t like it.

Overall Impression: It wasn’t for me

*I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
