What an incredibly creative story line....LOL! I have to admit, there are days when I wonder if Twitter is the work of Satan, but this book takes it to a whole new level. The thing is I can totally see myself doing exactly what Faye does to end up in this predicament...scary! I like that Faye never gives up her soul even when tempted by some really incredible things and OMG, you have to LOVE Christopher for standing by her. This is just a fun little story. Like I said, really creative and totally fun!

Did you read that second paragraph..."motorcycle-riding pastry chef"?? OMG, this is like the perfect guy.
This is a really sweet, fun story. The story features an 8 yo autistic boy who has issues with textures and having things on his hands. The only time he's really comfortable with those things is when he's cooking. So when his therapist's big brother, who just happens to be a chef, moves to town, she enlists his aid for Bowan and Anna.
Leo is a cursing, tattooed, motorcycle guy...certainly not the type you expect to work well with a kid, but it works...for all three of them. I liked the way this story was put together. I like books that feature chefs, but Leo is all hard-edges so it's hard to see how this is going to work. The fact that it does makes him especially endearing. I like his character...a LOT...for how he is with Bowan, but especially how he is with Anna...just a fabulous guy.
On the other hand there's Anna who has to put her son first...in everything. You have to admire her courage and tenacity. If a situation isn't going to work for Bowan, she puts him first. There were moments when my heart simply ached for her.
The best part of this book was most definitely the epilogue. The change in POV was brilliant and I finished the story with a smile on my face!

What a gorgeous love story! I loved everything about this story...the fallen angels, the never-ending love, the brothers, the glimpses of Torrin, Phoebe's flashbacks, the moments in Afghanistan....the whole story is just brilliantly put together and I am a fan. I am really, REALLY hoping that this is a start to a new series. We do have a bunch of brothers here who have been cast out of heaven searching for their true mates whom they gave up everything for. *sigh* Did I mention I love everything about this story? I also really love (although it's really tragic for her) that Phoebe has been haunted by this "past-life loss" her entire life and it's affected every relationship she's ever had. That is a seriously DEEP connection to Cade...LOVE!
