Divinely Ruined by Diane Alberts.
Audience/Genre : Adult/Paranormal, Novella.
Publication : April 26th 2012 by Entangled Publishing.
She finally meets a decent man–after she’s oath-bound never to touch men again!

Rebecca’s life sucked before she became an angel. Crappy apartment, awful jobs, abusive boyfriends–it was no wonder she jumped at the chance to escape it all and become a real live angel. The problem is Rebecca’s not very angelic, and she’ll have to do more to earn her wings than end her love affair with the word f–er, frick.

Especially when she’s assigned to save single father Tony Weis, whose less-than-pure thoughts wreak hell on a telepathic angel’s nerves. It’s all Rebecca can do to keep her hands off him…but when she loses her memory injuring herself to save Tony’s daughter, now it’s Tony’s turn to be her angel and care for her. But will Tony’s devotion tempt her from her angelic path, even if it means being human again?

I'm really not one for short stories or novellas but the cover and blurb of this one sucked me right in.

Rebbeca's human life wasn't much to begin with - it was miserable at best - so when she was offered an amazing chance to become an angel, she took it. Now Rebecca has her first mission on Earth - to save a man's soul and prevent him from doing something bad - and if she completes it, she will earn her wings.
The only problem is, Rebecca makes a crappy angel already, she didn't think she'd face trouble on her first mission in the form of an incredibly sexy man, namely Tony. That complicated things a bit.

Where do I even begin? I loved every moment of this book! Sassy doesn't even begin to cover Rebecca, I loved her temper, her constant swearing and just the fact that she was quite possibly the worst angel to exist.

Miranda was the most adorable kid EVER! Everytime she said/did something, I just wanted to pick her up and give her a big fat kiss on her forehead!

The chemistry between Tony and Rebecca was pretty awesome and I can't believe Diane Alberts made me feel so much in such a short time, it usually takes way more than that for me to get emotionally attached/invested in the characters. The multiple POVs really helped I guess, I loved knowing Tony's thoughts as well as Rebecca's. Very few authors can pull off a good multiple POV story and Diane Alberts is clearly one of them.

I loved the character development and the overall idea of this novel. I wanted Divinely Ruined to be part of an adult paranormal series if possible, that's how much I liked it. I was thrilled to know that this is the first in a trilogy, I honestly can't wait to read more books by Diane!
