Peek Inside Divinely Ruined

Rebecca jumped at the chance to escape a sucky life 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. 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?

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 can't remember the last time I picked up a book and did not put it back down until I finished it. Thank God it was the weekend. I look forward to the subsequent stories in this series. I will be the first in line to devour Ms. Albert's next Divine Temptations series!
Chanel, a 4.5 star review from Grave Tells
The way in which Diane tells the story engaged me from the start. It totally sucked me in. The story is full of emotion, there's tragedy, and then there's love... I found out today this is part of a trilogy. So now, like only Diane does, she's left me wanting more, and anxious for the next two. Diane, you must type faster. Maybe Sally can help?
Evie, from In Luv With Romance

Diane's writing style is amazing and you just get sucked in from the first page. Both books of hers I have read I have read in one sitting because I literally could not put them down they were so good. Her characters are incredible and you really feel for them and want everything to work out so badly...I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next. I am determined to now backtrack and buy and read all of her books because I just love them. I think they are amazing and I love them so much. If you want an amazing short paranormal romance then this is the book for you. Incredible!

After six months of writing for The Nocturnal Library, the time has come for me to review my first adult paranormal romance. It will probably be the last, too, so enjoy it while it lasts – I certainly did.

3.5 - "Maybe I should prove to you that you're no angel... and neither am I." Stars!

Another great reissue from Entangled. If you are a fan of this author I would recommend that you make sure you read the blurb before one-clicking just to be sure you haven't already read Divinely Ruined as it was ini ...more

Divinely Ruined is a sweet, enjoyable romance with a slight paranormal undertone. I must admit I thought this aspect may play a bigger part than it actually did, but it didn't detract from a story I quickly found myself immersed in.

If you think that this is just another angel story, you are so wrong! Rebecca was not the sort of angels that we would normally think of. She was not very good at being angelic--she's head strong, has a temper and cursed. She was on a mission to save a man's soul and she needed to ace it to gain her ...more

Rebecca Chance was a angel in training.

This is Diane Alberts' best work yet.

I've read most of Diane's books, and I can tell you this one tops them all.

The heroine, Rebecca, has had it tough-- and I mean tough for quite a few years. Non existent family, a shitty job, jerks for boyfriends, and the list goes on. She believes in nothing, h ...more

Rebecca is an angel in training--anxious to earn her wings.

This could have easily been a 5 star, but by the end of it, Rebecca had pissed me off too much.

This was a fast enjoyable read, and the first half was a pretty awesome, then it started going down from there. Rebecca changes a bit too much, I know it was necessary but it's as if she had last her spark ...more

I have to say, this book was much funnier than I had thought it would be. I loved the dynamics of the relationship between Rebecca, the guardian angel, and Tony, the one in need of saving.

This short, sweet romance is an absolute must-read. Rebecca is an angel-in-training and boy does she need lessons! Alberts' prose is sharp and witty, and she draws you in by creating characters that it's easy to sympathise with. She also manages to put in enough twists to avoid this becoming an over ...more
