Ärapanijast raadiosaatejuhti Julian Shaw’d armastavad kõik… peale mehe, kes teda tulistas.
Karmikoeline raadioreporter oleks arvanud, et satub surres pimedasse tunnelisse, näeb eredat valgust või kohtub teda pärliväravate ees ootava vanaema hingega… Selle asemel langeb ta hoopis koomasse, saab endale vaimust juhi, kelle nimi on Gus, ning kohtub talle lepingut pakkuva deemon

Loved this book, want to read more of this author's books !!!!
I remember picking this up because it sounded like a cute romance with a storyline that I hadn't quite read before. My kind of book. It had the devil, the DJ, the coma, and the assignment and I thought, how bad could it be? and then I thought, I'm looking to kill some time, might as well sell it to the devil.

I also remember feeling vaguely horrified when the book proper started. My eyes bulged out, I shivered in distaste, my toes curled at the absurdity and I realized with a grim detachment that

I am so glad that I am not the only one who thought Julian Shawn resembled Howard Stern.Even if this is the case I still felt the book was great and sweet.I'm not sure why I liked the book so much but because i'm not religious or really into romance but something about it captured my attention (probably because supernatural aspects) and it was a good read. I loved how Albert Einstein was a supervisor in the "Neither Here Nor There" I think that was brilliant.
A love story with a difference. A romance that eschews the mushy stuff and holds off on the erotic. It’s weird. It’s odd. It’s positively…angelic.

Being an agnostic, the saturation of heavenly and demonic interference in this story should have been off putting for me. But the down-to-earth raunchiness of DJ Julian Shaw and the toe-to-toe antagonism (genteelly cloaked) between agents for either side made this story rather memorable and gripping.

The book raises all sorts of intriguing questions abo

"No Spoilers!

This is an entertaining romp with the "ghost" of Shock-Jock DJ Julian Shaw (think Howard Stern, only cuter) playing guardian angel to a nice girl with a broken heart named Kate Darby. I must correct one thing from the book description: Jules isn't dead, he's in a coma & his spirit is in the Neither Here Nor There while his body fights to survive.

Katie is a likable heroine who is friendly to her neighbors, beloved of her coworkers, and a lover of dogs & her daddy. Jules (befo

Katie Darby's life takes a turn that makes Murphy's Law seem auspicious by comparison. She catches her boyfriend, who happens to be her most important client, in bed with her best friend. At the same time, her home is ransacked and her beloved dog is missing. Higher Powers intervene and assign an angel, radio shock jock Julian Shaw, to help her cope. Julian is not only reluctant in his new role, he's barren of all human compassion and wholly unsuited to Katie's needs. But 24/7 exposure to her li ...more

I remember this book from when it first came out. The blurb did not appeal. But recently I read several glowing reviews and decided to give it a try(thank you library!). And I am so glad I did.
Shock jock DJ Julian Shaw may be handsome, but he is NOT a nice person. So it is no surprise when an irate listener shoots him. Julian is not killed outright, but falls into a coma. While in this coma, he is recruited by this mysterious figure named Gus who informs him that he is in a limbo state(cleverly
This book was so intense, I'm having the hardest time processing it.

The only reason I finished this book was that I'm compelled to finish anything I've started. I can't pick up another book unless I've finished my current one.

I knew from the description that it was light-hearted fluff, but went along because it sounded fun. It wasn't a lot of fun, though, because the author spelled everything out for you. You'd think she'd use the possibilities offered by the presence of angels, demons and other in-betweeners to add some guesswork for the reader, so that you'd b

Wasn't sure about this book at first, but I just went with it and I'm glad that I did. It was a lot of fun and very different. Albert Einstein plays a role as a "Neither Here Not There" Supervisor, ABBA music is used as the perfect cosmic scrambler, and God is a She. This is chock full of lighthearted fun.
The "hero" was my favorite character. Julian is totally bad- but highly amusing and perfect. Come to think of it, I could really use a raunchy, bad-ass, no holds barred evil angel on my side- w

Despite all of the god related stuff and the fact that I really dislike ghost/other side/heaven and hell books I couldn't help liking Freudian Slip. The characters were really fun and the ending was adorable. One problem I had with it was that for the first half of the book I pictured Jules as Howard Stern (because of his description) and Gus as Alan Rickman (a British agent of god reminded me of Metatron).
Originally Read in February 2013. Original rating 3 stars. One of my requirements for a 4 star rating is that I would read it again and likewise for a 3 star, I would not. So since I read it again, 4 stars. It is one of those books that is both irreverent and spiritual, offensive yet still sweet. So to clarify, I really enjoyed the parts involving the main characters directly, and all the other behind the scenes stuff, not so much.

I started reading it because it sounded fun , but it was just ...meh. Kate is too perfect, Julian's metamorphosis happened too fast, too good. And why did he think he could only be with her as a spirit? Why not in real life? I didn't completely get that.
And all that ''spiritual'' nonsense... Nah. God ( portrayed here as a She) is all knowing but yet, Gus and Albert hide things from Her...How does that work? Either She is all knowing or she isn't. Wasn't impressed at all.
This book definitely is not the sort of book I generally like. Yet... I had a hard time putting it down. It was thought-provoking in a few ways. It was very religious, which is usually a big no for me but... Bits and pieces reminded me of Dogma. You know, if the movie were actually a romance novel. I was amazed at the humor the author was able to inject with so many serious subjects.

I heard a lot of good things about this author, so I was a little let down because I was expecting something more out of the writing. The story line was super cute and the characters just flawed enough for me to enjoy, so it was good, I'll read more of Orloff, but so-so.
This book is a theological dream. It's brilliant that way. I recommend it be read by seminary students. Oh, and by shelving it on my "chicklit" and "romance" shelves, I mean: for "intelligent chicks who like sophisticated romance."

This is not the best written book on the planet, but it was a delightfully lovely light piece of reading that ended with a happily ever after. Perfect light reading for an endlessly hot summer day.
