This book was truly just an enjoyable read. I loved the story line. Rebecca is trying to earn her wings after a not-so-great life. Her goal, to keep Tony from committing a sin that will condemn his soul which will earn her those wings. But instead she finds herself in danger of never becoming an angel at all.
When she arrives at Tony's, she is very upfront about what she is and why she's there. I loved this part of the story because she can hear all of Tony's thoughts and they are certainly NOT pure about her...hehe. At the beginning, despite his attraction to her, they have a very antagonistic relationship towards each other. The back and forth biting between them is sarcastic, witty, and fun. I really enjoyed this part of the story. Rebecca is definitely NOT what you normally consider as angelic, but she is trying.
Both of these characters have had less than ideal lives. Honestly, they both have issues with their faith, especially with their faith in themselves. I liked watching them grow individually through their relationship with each other. I also really loved the 4 yo in the story, Miranda. She definitely provides a positive place to land within the story line.
Rebecca is brash, short-tempered, and trying her best to find a new life as an angel. She's trying so hard to do everything right. Tony has lost everything in his life beside his daughter Miranda. He's floundering, unhappy, and incredibly vulnerable. The chemistry between them is sizzling especially since an involvement between them will mean no wings for Rebecca. It's a no-win situation. After Rebecca loses her memory, it's especially heartbreaking to watch Tony try to resist her. Their attraction is so true...how can it be wrong?
I LOVED this book. Like I said, it was the perfect little read for a nice diversion. Just a fun and beautiful book to read!

Rebecca is a woman set out to make things right. All her life has been centered on bad things and now she has a chance to make everything right. Problem is that her job is to make Tony go into the right path and not destruction. Hard to do for here is a man who doesn’t well believe.
I loved the spin of this story and have to say Diane Alberts did a great job in even making this reader a believer. Tony is your typical father who has had his life turned upside down. Now Rebecca is not a woman to back down easily and this was great in the book. The attraction is there but man Diane Alberts sure knows how to make Tony work for the love.
Great book and definitely an author that I will watch. Her book is smooth and well developed to the point where even I fell for Rebecca and her schemes in making things right.

Rebecca Chance has lived a life that has been anything but happy
Rebecca Chance has lived a life that has been anything but happy. She has had boyfriends who were abusive, terrible jobs, suffered through the death of family, and she has given up on her dreams. When presented with an opportunity to turn things around, she jumps at. Rebecca is an angel in training, and in the process of trying to earn her wings. Her first assignment is to save Tony Weis' soul, by keeping him from committing murder. Needles to say, Tony is pretty skeptical when this beautiful woman shows up claiming to be an angel and telling him she is there to save him. Did I mention that Rebecca has a problem with her mouth, which doesn't help the situation. Tony lives with his daughter Miranda, and is raising her alone after his wife left him, and he is very bitter with women because of this. Nevertheless, little Miranda is the light of his life and he would do anything for her. Rebecca refuses to fail at her first assignment and proceeds to move in with Tony and Miranda, determined she is going to save his soul. Rebecca is a very beautiful woman, and Tony, well he is pretty hot himself. Rebecca has very hard time keeping her thoughts about Tony pure. On top of that, she can read Tony's thoughts, and his thoughts regarding her are anything but pure, which makes the temptation that much harder.Was this review helpful?

After an incident occurs that causes Rebecca lose her memory, Tony is determined to take care of her. The chemistry between Rebecca and Tony is off the charts, and this time, the situation is reversed with Rebecca pursuing Tony, and Tony trying to keep her pure until she gets her memory back, all the while being afraid of what will happen when she does. What will happen when Rebecca finally has to choose between love and becoming an angel?
I really enjoyed this book. It is a great romance with a paranormal twist. This story is so much more than just another angel story. It's a story of woman and man trying to push past the hardships they have been dealt in life, trying to find love, happiness, and acceptance again. The story line is fun and entertaining, with its intense moments, and the romance......well let's just say it gets pretty hot, especially at the end. Divinely Ruined is short, fast-paced, and delightful read and if you love romance, this is a great story to read. Please note that are some adult scenes in this book that are not suitable for younger readers.

Divinely Ruined is a sweet and light-hearted story and I instantly fell in love with its not so Angelic female heroine, Rebecca Chance. Alberts has a lovely way of making realistic characters and ones that are easy to fall in love with. If you’re looking for a quick, feel good paranormal romance with lots of heart then I would definitely recommend you pick up Divinely Ruined.Was this review helpful?
