Blurb:

The Archangel Michael is tired. He fought wars and shoved his brother Lucifer out of heaven all before the Dark Ages rolled around. His role as protector of Israel now encompasses all of humanity, and while he performs his job perfectly, there’s little personal joy in it.

Until one night in a bar when he meets Asher.

Michael isn’t sure what it is about the vulnerable, self-deprecating Asher that calls to him, but something about his restrained depths, gentle smiles, and encyclopedic knowledge of flowers tugs at Michael in a way that can’t be denied. Too bad romance isn’t part of his mission.

Facing an eternity of perfect submission to God’s authority, rebellion stirs in Michael. Questions of free will, angelic vocation, and the role of love and lust demand answers that just might cost Michael his place in heaven.

Warnings: this novella contains urban fantasy, wings, angels doing unangelic things, erotic content, and playful blasphemy.

I have mixed feelings about Angel Undone. On one hand, I appreciated how different it was. It’s not often we have a love story between an Archangel and a human, but there was something missing for me. But there were definitely more positives than negative-s so let us begin with the positives first:

My highlights:

    -Plot. As I mentioned above the plot- it was different and creative. I liked that it makes the reader think and question. There’s no doubt Leta Blake is an excellent writer.
    -Humor. There were some hilarious parts courtesy of Lucifer (Archangel Michael’s brother).
    -The steam. It was sexy and… imaginative.
    -The flow (for the most part) was effortless.
    -The love story was incredibly sweet and will have you rooting for the characters to get their HEA.
    -The end was nicely executed.

But-

    -There was a time lapse in the story that didn’t quite make sense to me that brought the rating down. It added nothing to the story. Since Angel Undone is a novella, the time lapse stood out like a sore thumb.
    -The length. This story could’ve been longer for sure.

In the end, would I recommend this book? Yes, it was unique, sexy, and thought provoking. 3.80 Stars
