Oh Heaven's mercy did I love this book! Who knew angels could be so wanton?

Chasan is an angel of air.

Nathaniel is an angel of fire.

They are destined to join souls, but Nathaniel has been avoiding Chasan for a thousand years. He has reasons (albeit selfish ones), which become clear as the story progresses.

In a last-ditch effort to push Chasan and Nathaniel together, Saint Peter sends them to New York city circa 2020 on a mission to save a human child. The angels must pose as husbands, share

Wowthat was stupendous! I was hoping for a fantastic fun read and that is exactly what I got. It was full of high-spirited entertainment with some heavy-hearted moments tucked in. I cant seem to recall many angel-centric stories that Ive read lately and was reminded how much I enjoy a well done paranormal romance tale. Walker takes us to a place where angels live in a world very much like our world with some minor adjustments. Ha! Bringing them to Earth to deal with such adjustments was a riot. ...more
4.5 stars

Dichotomy of Angels is another gem by one of my favorite authors, N. R. Walker.

Chasan is the angel of air. He is sweet, kind and is loved by everyone. On the other hand, Nathaniel is the angel of fire, and he is grumpy and loves to smite (blow things up) and doesnt exactly like people, at all. But Chasan and Nathaniel are fated mates and they are sent to Earth on assignment. While earthbound, they struggle to figure out what to do, should they try to be together or break their bond

Not my favorite by N.R. Walker, mainly because stories with angels are not really my thing. I've read quite a few, but for some reason they never fully grab me.

That being said, I really liked both MCs. Chasan was a sweetheart, and Nathaniel was adorably frustrating. I really enjoyed the first half of the book or so, Nathaniel was so much fun. The rest of the story was a bit predictable and less enjoyable for me, but that's just my personal preference.
*4,5 stars*

I just love a good title. And this one is fab.
As it happens, so is the rest of the book.

The combination of angels and fated mates might seem an interesting choice, but it was fun and worked for me, even though I would have liked some more detailed explanations about the whole thing (Saint Peter was keeping all those secrets quite close to his godly chest!)

Sweet, patient Chasan versus "temperamental, difficult, argumentative and irrational" Nathaniel was a fabulous ball game to watch.

** 4.5 stars **

I enjoyed this PNR romance set in New York City. Told from dual POVs it featured two angels who could be considered absolute opposites at least at first, a mission that was more than it seemed on the surface, love through the ages that survived impossible odds and a whole lot of forgiveness.

I liked Chasan a lot despite his sometimes too gentle nature that allowed Nathaniel to walk all over him, but in their pairing someone had to be compassionate and understanding or it would
This was quite a read, overall.

I know as an atheist myself, I always go into anything with religion in it - whether it be angels or gods or just really religious people - with trepidation. I just never want to be lectured at through the text or have characters who are atheists or not interested in religion all the sudden change their mind and go "ah, this was the way all along!" because nah, I'm not about that. If a character gets there through means that makes sense and through good writing,

Angels. Love them, love them even more when they are falling in love.

I just binge watched Miracle workers which I surprisingly loved so I had no qualms about the humor in the first half of the book. After that it got old and repetitive and I was not a happy camper.

I did like the different departments though in Nathaniel's case I'm sure he would have liked something more for his swearing deficiency.

This book also has a kinky factor since the watchers were watching them on their own heavenly

I truly enjoyed The Dichotomy of Angels and Nathaniel and Chasan were easily became my favorite angels!
A thousand years neglected his fated mate with Chasan, finally St.Peter lost his patience, and put Nathaniel and Chasan on one assignment on earth. To safe a kid.
Assigned as kindergarten teachers, Nathaniel and Chasan started their new adventure together after a thousand years avoiding the assignment together (for Nathaniel at least).
Chasan loved Nathaniel forever, and Nathaniel afraid to admit

What a good holiday story, even if indirectly so. The feeling of it and the message is so proper for the current times.
I really enjoyed the portrayal of all things celestial or divine and I laughed and raged and fell in love along with the characters 💙
Much better than previous Walker books. It wasn't quite so cheesy, and had some great relationship angst.

Wow, it seemed like this was a longer book than it actually was! 🙄 I thought Nathaniel was never going to get on the same page as Chasan 😩. I was so happy just to finish this exhausting story!
I laughed a lot and I cried at one point, I totally enjoyed reading this unique story. Jill worded it perfectly during our BR, this book is cute but with so much depth!

It would be awesome if I could "summon" more books like this one! ;)

4.5 stars
One of the most original, heartwarming and giggle inducing PNR books I've ever read.

This unique twist on Angel Romance deserves a standing ovation.

4 stars

Im not quite sure what I was expecting from The Dichotomy of Angels, but for some reason, I didnt anticipate the lightness mixed in with the more serious elements. I really enjoyed the humor here and the bits of snark and fun. Some of this comes at Nathaniels expense, as he expresses his frustration at the human world with which he is mostly unfamiliar, as well as his irritation that he lost his ability to smite and to swear when he came to Earth (even worse, the

So very funny!

I loved this aside from the fact that an immortal angel who hadnt been on earth for a milennia had the speech and idiomatic phrases of the modern age.

I both loved and hated this very angel, Nathaniel, for being extremely pigheaded and totally adorable.

Not Walkers best work, but certainly a fun one!

My rec? Its a heavenly delight!

The Dichotomy of Angel's was a different book by N.R Walker. It was something my heart really wanted to read since I hadn't read anything in about 2 weeks (what felt like years).

I loved the 2 main characters and some of the side characters too. The story was so cute and it made me really happy. If you're looking to read a book of 2 angels then definitely give this a try.

4.25 stars. This story had everything I love about NR Walkers books. It was sweet, sexy, and surprisingly funny. It also had more angst than I was expecting. I dont want to give anything away, so I dont want to say much more. I really enjoyed the story.

I received an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I laughed, I cried, I pondered

As an atheist, I approached this book with caution. I neednt have worried. Might some people be offended by it? Quite possibly. Is it worth reading? Absolutely.

Now, I didnt come to that decision easily. As the book progressed, I vacillated back and forth between loving it, feeling annoyed at it, and being confused by it. I think, in the end, the humor helped win me over.

Nathaniel grimaced. I wish I could still swear and smite things. He put his hand to his forehead.

For me this was interesting because I am not a believer in anything paranormal. I don't have any problems with stories about angels as long as they aren't proselytizing. I actually enjoy many of them especially when there's humor involved and there were a bunch of times where I was giggling in this book.

Chasan was everything good, sweet and pure and Nathaniel was a ball of frustration and rage. They are supposed to be intertwined souls but Nathaniel felt his free-will was taken from him.

Wow! I'm so in love with this book! Last read of the year and what an amazing way to end 2019.

Is there a more perfect book for me? N R Walker writes amazing books, and this one is not any different. It made me laugh throughout. Although I'm agnostic, I devoured this book. And I love how creative Nathaniel is with his swearing as he's banned from swearing.

Chasan and Nathaniel are total opposites. Fire and Air. Oh,

As an atheist, i dont usually care for angels and their tropes but this book was lovely. NR Walker- though had a couple of misses with me last year - outdid herself with this one. Dare I say it is as good as Red Dirt? very possibly, Ill let the narration decide when it comes to audio.

I'm finding it hard to describe this book . . . I'm in a bit of a stupor.

I always love NR Walker's guys . . . her angels are no different. I adore the pairing of Chasan and Nathaniel -- they're different, but their differences make them strong together, they just have to get there.

This story was touching, funny, heart-wrenching, challenging, and I couldn't help but gobble it up.

This book was everything I couldve hoped for and more.

Casan and Nathaniel are fates mated which would be wonderful if it wasnt for the fact that Nathaniel has been avoiding Casan for a thousand years and seems to be okay with continuing to do that.

That is until a mission pushes them together and makes them face not only one another but also themselves.

I adored Casan. He was so sweet and for the most part completely patient with Nathaniel. And, he needed A LOT of patience.

Nathaniel was
I'm going to need for this book to be turned into a series, a la Cronin's Key, with Chasan and Nathaniel going off and doing additional assignments, except maybe ones that aren't as stressful and dangerous as the Scooby gang gets into.

Full review to come.
