Lovely romance, angels helping bring about a match made in heaven. Ricky and Jez are adorable, Ricky is a knucklehead who gets a mighty shove in the right direction. Tender and lovely story, my kind of pick me up!
Wonderfully uplifting story by Anne Brooke, give this story a try you'll not regret it.

Wonderfully uplifting story about two best mates, who with a little help from a heavenly angel, finally learn that the right guy was right in front of each other the whole time.

A very short, very nice feel-good story about Ricky who's been in love with his best friend Jez for years.

They've never been able to connect, both thinking the other was either not interested or too good for them. I loved reading about "heaven's last-ditch effort" to finally open Ricky's eyes. Very nice!

Maybe about 3.5 but rounding it up as this cute, sweet short pushed my sappy buttons just right tonight. Lovely free read.

A sweet, light hearted story about two friends that finally connect.

A cute short story about divine intervention on a man who has a really thick skull :) Not a whole lot of time to get into the characters, but I rooted for them the same and enjoyed them.

Ricky loves his best friend Jez, but has never had the courage to do anything about it. He thinks he is just an airhead who doesn’t deserve someone like Jez. Luckily, his Guardian Angel Madred thinks differently. But, first Madred has to make Ricky believe in angels, before he can make him believe in himself.

This is a very cute little short that had me giggling. Ricky pines for his friend Jez, but doesn’t thin

Ricky and Jez have been friends for years. Ricky figures Jez is everything he’s not, handsome, good job, nice apartment, savings account so he’s never made a move despite both being gay. They’re hanging out one day when suddenly angel appears. Ricky does NOT believe in angels but the angel is here to help him get his shit together and realize that Jez loves him. The interactions with the angel are quite humorous and after he leaves Ricky has no memory of it but is suddenly compelled to make a mo ...more

Ricky and Jez are best friends who were attracted to each other but didn't know about the other man's feeling. It takes an angel's visit to shake Ricky's stubbornness... except, he didn't believe in angels.

A nice short story. (view spoiler)

Great book!!!!

This was a great book. It was funny and lovely. I'm glad I found this book. I wish it was longer. I like angels and demon books. It's different. Love though is the ultimate ending. Thank you for sharing.

When the Heaven itself lends a "helping hand" to show you the path of your true love, that must means something, huh? *g*. I like this short story -- for 11 pages, it's truly entertaining.

3.5 stars, but I've rounded up to 4 for GoodReads.

Ricky and Jez have been friends for years, and though they’ve seen each other through a variety of relationships, they’ve never hooked up. Ricky has always wanted to, though. He just never believed someone like Jez would ever be interested in a guy like him. During a quiet night in at Jez’s, Ricky gets a surprise visit from a creature that claims to be his guardian angel. He’s there to give Ricky one last chance at the love he wants, but it’s up

This review was originally written for The Romance Reviews and can also be found there.

When angels need to intervene to get two men together, there is no doubt the story will be sweet, adorable and satisfying.

Ricky has had a thing for Jez for a long time, but he never thought he was good enough and it certainly never occurred to him that Jez might feel the same. It takes an angel stopping time and showing him flashes of Jez's thoughts behind some familiar events to kick Ricky in the ass and make

Ricky requires divine intervention to help him see what he want is there in front of him. Ricky is stubborn to the hilt and thinks of himself as unworthy. Determine to succeed where his fellow angels have failed, Madred, goes one step further literally showing Ricky his life with his best friend Jez.

Sometimes we need help with pulling our heads outside of negative thinking. Perhaps, then, our dreams will come true. First, you must believe.

Angels and Airheads is a short, endearing story of faith,

Reviewed by Amber: I can't say that I got what the point of this story was. The angel was supposed to be some sort of divine act of intervention, but I felt the story to support the reasoning for this was sparse and bland. The characters weren't developed enough for me to like them and I blame this on the short length(5K).

There is a short erotic scene tacked on at the end. If you're into angels and quick reads you might enjoy this short story.
