The Archangel Michael is tired. He fought wars and shoved his brother Lucifer out of heaven all before the Dark Ages rolled around. His role as protector of Israel now encompasses all of humanity, and while he performs his job perfectly, there's little personal joy in it.

Until one night in a bar when he meets Asher.

Michael isn’t sure what it is about the vulnerable, self-

Blasphemy that would leave my grandma open-mouthed and open-eyed in horror and my other grandma saying “Eh?”.



Well, it’s not that extreme, by if you are a little sensitive, this book is not for you.

I have read nothing of Neil Gaiman, so I have no way to compare.

This is the first book I’ve read by Leta Blake. I think her style is solid and the acid sense of humor kept me going until the very end.

But, honestly, there is little to be happy about.

The love story is off-off-off. And I’d like to say the

On the night that 40 year old virgin, Asher Rosenthal decides he's finally going to be intimate with a man, God himself sends Asher a guardian angel, to keep him from making a terrible, potentially dangerous mistake.



And since the Archangel Michael thinks God incapable of making mistakes, the immediate, unmistakable draw that Michael feels for Archer isn't even questioned. It just is.

But when Michael wants to continue his budding romantic relationship with Asher, long after Asher's life has been

I have mixed feelings about Angel Undone. On one hand, I appreciated how different it was. It's not often we have a love story between an Archangel and a human. There were more positives than negatives so let us begin with the positives first:

My highlights:

-Plot. As I mentioned above the plot- it was different and creative. There's no doubt Leta Blake is an excellent writer.
-Humor. There were some hilarious parts courtesy of Lucifer (Archangel Michael's brother).
-The steam. It was sexy and... im

As angels go, the Archangel Michael has some pretty serious cred. He's referred to as a warrior of God who led the angelic army in triumphing over the powers of evil, casting his brother Lucifer out of heaven. He's also known as an advocate and protector of the Jewish people.

So what is this angelic warrior doing in a bar trying to pick up Asher, a 40-yr-old Jewish virgin who lives with his parents? Michael's mission from the Father is to protect and comfort desperate souls, sometimes in a very

This one didn't work for me at all, which makes me all kinds of sad because Leta Blake and dirty angel.

But Michael's not so dirty, just confused. His brother Lucifer runs a surf shop and is portrayed as kind of a good guy, even if he does stir up trouble.

The theology here made not a lick of sense. Asher's Jewish, though, which is cool, cause I'm all about the Jews.

However, the present-tense, third-person POV rarely works for me, and even though I found it bearable here, I never fully connecte

This was a difficult one to rate. I sat here with my thinking cap on for quite a while. Clicking on the stars finally helped me to decide. 4 stars - really liked. 3 stars - liked it. It is definitely somewhere in-between.
I can see why Leta Blake acknowledges Neil Gaiman in her preface for inspiration. I've read 'Good Omens' by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, and the tone of 'Angel Undone' is very similar. There is a lot of sharp sarcasm and humour close to the bone. Add a very naughty

This novella is out of the ordinary in the best way. I found it a refreshing change of pace to read about the Archangel Michael's struggle with his vocation and his urge for love and a simple life with a human, Asher. Their romance is sweet and very sexy. I'm not religious, and I enjoyed the take on God and his motivations. Michael's brother Lucifer is also a standout character who made me laugh out loud several times. I betaed this story and am admittedly bias, but I think this is a terrific re ...more

After the Great Battle, the Archangel Michael is in the business of protection. He is sent by His Father to the souls that need saving emotionally or physically. One such mission brings him to Asher Rosenthal. He is a 40 year old man about to make a mistake that can cost him his life. So Michael swoops in to save Asher. What would have been a routine mission for Michael turns out to be something bigger when he starts developing feelings for Asher. He has not felt such intense attraction or feeli

I just finished this book and I'm sat here typing, deleting and retyping...I really don't know what to say about this book.

Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it, the writing is great as anything written by Leta Blake is.

The archangel Michael falls in love with his 'mark' 40 year old virgin, Asher.
Cue lots of wrath from God, worry from Michael about what will happen if he leaves his father and follows his heart with Asher, along with amusing appearances by Lucifer.
Yes really.

Not my favourite Leta Blake I have to say, although I do appreciate that it was an unusual and well thought out read. I just didn't connect with the MC's I'm afraid, and the present tense used irritated the hell out of me, although it has to be said that I didn't have that problem with the Will & Patrick Wake Up Married series that Leta did, which was exactly the same. I think the truthful answer is I just didn't like Archangel Michael and Asher, I didn't feel the love, whereas I <3 Will

Ack! Leta Blake went and made me swoon over a rebellious angel who isn’t Lucifer! Blasphemy in deed.

I love stories about forbidden love and what could be more forbidden than the love between an ethereal creature and a human? Fallen Angels are my jam, I still cannot think of a few stories or even movies I’ve seen with them where I don’t get emotional. I mean, come on. Falling in love and giving all for love is a theme my romantic heart holds dear and giving up everything that comes with being an

Angels fascinate me, and though we don’t know how Heaven works - if it even exists – there is a high number of interpretations of how it might be run. The world and logic that Leta Blake creates in ‘Angel Undone’ has many familiar elements, but the unique combination of characters, their attitudes, and the central conflict Archangel Michael faces were interesting and both entertaining and thought-provoking.

Michael is a conflicted angel. He has done his bit fighting wars and protecting Heaven ag

You know those days when you question your career and wonder if maybe it's time to do something else with your life? Well Michael is there. And that's a kind of a problem when you're "The" Michael (as in the archangel Michael). When Michael is sent on a new mission and he meets Archer he is supposed to offer comfort and help Archer to accept his sexuality. Instead he ends up finding himself attracted to the shy man and subsequently falling for him. Archer is in a place of transition him

To quote the brilliant Oscar Wilde, “The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself, with desire for what its monstrous laws have made monstrous and unlawful." Temptation—it’s been excellent fodder for fiction since the serpent tempted Eve with the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And seriously, what’s more tempting than forbidden love?

This was enjoyable, quick, sexy, with a little angst thrown in.

Michael is an angel, and spends his time on missions from God that help people. On this particular mission, he is sent to help Asher, a 40 year old man finally trying to come to terms with his sexuality (also a Virgin). At first Asher is a very sad depressed and confused man. It doesn't take long for Michael to use whatever heavenly powers he possesses to change that, and what was supposed to be a one night mission turns

I like religious themes in my fiction, whether more serious, skating boundaries, or of a more erotic nature – this definitely ticks the latter two boxes. Michael’s inner questions regarding his relationship with God, his earthly questions of Lucifer, and the romance between himself and Asher all make for entertaining storytelling. If you like some sexy writing with an angel and his love for a mortal then this is flirty and fun… and delightfully irreverent.

In the wrap up, I enjoyed Angel Undone.

Angel Undone is the story of two kind and loving men who find an instant connection, but are separated by this great divide. Michael is supposed to be done with Asher as soon as their night is over, but he can’t make himself leave this man he is so drawn to. At the same time, Michael has to hide just about everything about himself from Asher, which further adds to the conflict. I found these guys sweet together and I wanted to see them happy. I think the ending t

Leave it to Leta Blake to Make Blasphemy Adorable

With a trope like this, I expected either black comedy or kooky, over the top Dogma style humor. But this surprised me- I actually found myself giggling throughout the book. It was really unique. Admittedly, for someone who has such negative feelings toward most all types of religion, I have a weird obsession with the Bible. I thought I'd find this trope annoying, but I loved it.

This is a short, quick read. Though God and Lucifer were important s

I received a copy of Angel Undone by Leta Blake via Indigo Marketing & Design in exchange for an honest review. I wanted to read this book because I enjoyed the Will and Patrick serial so much. I knew it probably would be less humorous and it is, but it is also a delightful story of renewal and grace. The eponymous character Michael is wonderfully human in his questioning, despite his angelic being. When he is supposed to save Asher from a major mistake, Michael winds up falling for him, thu ...more

You know what I think? I think that night you needed me just as much as I needed you.

Archangel Michael believes it is his duty to save Asher, but perhaps it is the Angel that needs saving too? Actually, I can't think of a much more delicious cocktail than 'urban fantasy, wings, angels doing unangelic things, erotic content, and playful blasphemy'.

To be perfectly honest, I snatched up ARC and the opportunity to read this because it’s Leta Blake. Lordy, I do love Leta’s writing.

The premise of Angel Undone was also super interesting but a big step outside my comfort zone. Mainly because I’m pretty sure I’m solidly agnostic and cannot, no matter how hard I’ve tried and no matter how much religion fascinates me, I cannot fi

This was a short read, but very sweet, and that sweetness is something I’m beginning to associate with all of Blake’s work. This technically was a love story, between an angel, Michael, and a human, Asher, but I actually found the relationship between Michael and his brother, Lucifer, to be the most compelling part of the story, which was unexpected and wonderful. I appreciated the religious themes–they weren’t too in-my-face or unbelievable.

For a number of years, angels and their hierarchy have been an interest of mine - the legend and beliefs surrounding each of the messengers of God (especially, Gabriel, Michael, Raphael and Uriel) each *archangel* having their own distinct roles. So, I was excited to read this type of story, angels falling for fragile humans....

So, Michael is God's enforcer, but his mission has now slightly changed since the war that rid Lucifer from Heaven, he protects and comforts hopeless souls and Asher is

Angel Undone by Leta Blake was a funny and steamy treat. I wasn't sure what to expect from the story, but ended up enjoying it quite a bit.

I've always loved the Archangel Michael. Because of that, I know quite a bit about the Christian mythology when it comes to Michael, Lucifer, and the whole gang. I really liked how Ms. Blake not only portrayed Michael's history accurately, but she also was able to mold him into something new and interesting
