Sometimes you only need to believe.
Raziel Slade and Jack Hastings have been best friends since Raz saved Jack’s life twelve years ago. Only Jack doesn’t remember Raz at all, and he certainly doesn’t remember falling in love with him. Now that Jack’s moved in with his university housemates, explicit dreams begin of a blue-eyed male stranger. Needing a new flatmate after his best friend moves out, Jack is introduced to Raziel Slade who has extraordinary blue eyes. Jack has no idea how to cope with his attraction to the man.
Raziel Slade has a secret – he used to be an angel. He fell in love with Jack Hastings and happily became human, but the angels aren’t prepared to let him go and steal him back. All Raz wants to do is return to his lover any way he can.
When a film brings back Jack’s memories, will he feel the same as he did when he finds out what Raz gave up for him? And are the angels finally ready to let Raziel, the Keeper of Secrets, go?
Publisher’s Note: This book is a sequel to Not Every Time.
A bell rings was a good read. I would consider it a short story.
Love is a powerful thing. And love is strong. So strong in fact that even heaven cannot stop the strength behind loving someone.
Raz is an archangel that fell in love with the human that he was sent to watch over. He fell in love so hard with Jack that he saved his life 13 years before this story takes place but there are rules against Angels falling in love with humans. So in order to be able to stay with Jack, Raz has to clip his wings and become human himself, but that does not come without a cost.
I enjoyed that this book revolves more around love then sex. Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy reading books with sex scenes in just as much as the next one but it is nice to be able to read a book that is based on being sweet and full of hope and love. I lived that Raz loved Jack so much he was willing to do whatever he had to in order to stay with him and I love that Jack loved him enough in return to let him go and sacrifice being together in order to save Raz’s life.
If I had anything that I would say that would improve the book on, it would be lengthen when the two angels come to see Raz and Jack and maybe give an epilogue on their life together after the fact, which by the way I am not saying I did not enjoy the read because I did. I would definitely read s follow up book if there was to be one.
