Blurb: Can one determined angel smooth the course of true love and help Ricky get his man?
Ricky has been secretly in love with his best friend Jez forever, but he’s never dared confess his feelings because he thinks Jez is too high-class for him. One evening, while sharing a quiet evening with Jez, a mysterious angel, Madred, appears and tries to persuade Ricky to take a chance on love.
Too bad Ricky doesn’t believe in angels. Madred is forced to take desperate measures in an attempt to show the reluctant Ricky the truth. When the angel leaves, can Ricky find the courage to declare himself to Jez, and what will happen to their friendship if he does?
Review: 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 think he is good enough. Madred is Ricky’s fifth guardian angel, yes that’s right fifth, Ricky doesn’t believe in angels so divine intervention is a little tricky. Madred and Ricky go head to head as Madred tries to get Ricky to take a chance at happiness, if only he would put his heart out there to Jez.
Ah, this is such a sweet short about taking chances; Ricky has been gently nudged quite a few times to put his heart out there to Jez. But, he always thinks of something that always holds him back. This time Heaven means business and Madred is given the task of convincing him. Loved it, the storyline was great, but we didn’t get to know the characters, except that Ricky is extremely stubborn, it was a shame but for a short story it was great.
I recommend this to those who love angel intervention, conflicted men, a sweet short story and a happy ending.
