Publisher's Summary

An enemies-to-lovers romance with an unlikely guardian angel....

High school history teacher April Carter never asked to be an angel. When she's murdered, she should go to heaven like a normal person. Instead, she wakes up in the afterlife as an angel-in-training with the insufferable Damian as her mentor. 

She might as well be in hell. 

Damian plans to help April cross over and be done with her. Being assigned as her trainer is the last thing he needs. She's stubborn and strong-willed, and she's ignited a fire in his soul he didn't think could ever burn again. 

If the pair can stop butting heads long enough to keep their charge alive, they might discover a love worth fighting for.

Critic Reviews

"I think this is the very first time I've read a book with angels in it that didn't involve battles with demons. It was actually refreshing to see the conflict arise that had nothing to do with 'evil' as much as the struggles with the basic human condition." (Up 'Til Dawn Book Blog)

SURPRISING AND INTERESTING

Very enjoyable story. l actually listened to it 3 times during two weeks while l was gardening. This is the first time l have listened to this author and am pleasantly surprised with the story subject. No spoilers but l loved the way they decorated and got clothes.

Guardian Angels

April and Damian are great characters and I like the happy ending. The storyline is filled with interesting twists and turns. The narration is well done. Curt Bonnem has a great voice, with a great pace, easy to understand. I enjoyed my listening. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Wonderful story!

April and Damien were both great characters and each had a set of issues. This story had a couple of surprise twist and I was really surprised at how the two danced around each other instead of speaking their minds. April really did seem to grow through the story and it had an HEA. Who knew angels could have so many things going on with them. Loved it!

ROMANTIC, FUNNY, SEXY, GUARDIAN ANGELS

THE REST OF FOREVER is a stand-alone paranormal romance.

I want a guardian angel just like Damian. I mean every bit like him.

I loved that this was a different angel falling in love story. I don’t want to give anything away by saying how it was different.

I loved the intensity. I loved Damian trying to avoid his feelings until avoiding hurt more than accepting. I loved that everything wasn’t too easy, or too hard. I loved that April was a Texas spit-fire. I got the distinct feeling that her motto is “rules are just suggestions.” She certainly makes her own decisions!

Damian and April’s relationship is a slow to build, undeniable, affection that must have been preordained.

THE REST OF FOREVER is sexy, romantic, funny, and thought provoking. I absolutely loved it.

This was my first book from this author and I hope she will include me in future tours and releases!

Narration: Curt Bonnem’s voice reminds me of Rock Engle’s. He has a voice that is a soothing balm after a hectic day at work. Thank you for making my commute so much better this past week.

Note: While I received this book as a gifted audiobook copy, my opinions are my own and are given freely.

Great Forever After

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. This was a very different concept for the Forever After. The author has a great imagination. April's transition and Damien's tutoring makes a great love story. The narrator did an excellent job with the characters and their personalities.

Sweet Guardian Angel Romance


I really enjoyed the premise for The Rest of Forever. I liked Pulkinen's take on the guardian angel angle; it felt unique, and the romance is really sweet. The narrator did a good job with the audio, and I'd recommend listening if you have the chance. It's a male narrator, and he had a nice tone to his voice. I liked the connection between April and Damian, and I enjoyed the little bit of forbidden love aspect to the story. Damian has been April's guardian angel for almost 30 years. He feels deeply for her, but a bad experience from his past is messing with his present and his future. Damian's issues cause some problems for April and Him. He tries to push her away, and it ends up affecting his job of protecting April. April is a teacher, who wants the perfect life, but unfortunately, her current boyfriend leaves a lot to be desired. She's in for a surprise when she learns about her guardian angel, and takes a closer look at her life. I had a hard time liking April. She's so blinded by her idea of the "perfect" life, she misses all the bad in her life. Her boyfriend Jared is horrible, but she's so desperate to not be alone, she doesn't see it clearly. They've only been together for a year, and she knows deep down that something isn't right, but she keeps wallowing about getting married. She talks about Damian being mean to her, but all I read was her being rude to him. Damian pretty much helps her all the time, and she's so blind to all he does for her. She's a brat a lot of the time, and it did become frustrating at times. In the end, she wasn't my favorite, but I liked the rest of the story. I liked the slow burn between April and Damian, and they do have some steamy times. I'd read more by Carrie Pulkinen. Entertaining, fun read!

Great story and narrator

A narrator can make or break a great book and curt bonnem did not disappoint. I listened almost all night long. Yes ,there were times I wanted to throw my kindle across the room when April's boyfriend was involved , but that was the point and it was believable.

A Fascinating Story!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I loved this book, Carrie Pulkinen is a skillful and creative author. She creates an imaginative story that is realistic that draws you in right from the start and holds your interests throughout. Great character development and buildup in the story. The main characters were likable and relatable, April May is sweet with normal everyday insecurities and issues, like her loser boyfriend. Damian, the Angel with an attitude, by the end you can not help but fall in love with him and want an Angel just like him. I loved how this book took a different turn than I was expecting, also loved the descriptive details of the inner workings of the Angels and the heavens above. Thank you Carrie Pulkinen for a wonderful story and great read!


Curt Bonnem does a wonderful job narrating. He performs the voices of all the characters, switches vocals back and forth effortlessly and tells the story in a perfect flow. Thank you for a great listen!

This was my first audiobook by Carrie Pulkinen and although I enjoyed the storyline I didn’t like the narrator. The insecurity and low self esteem of the heroine in the beginning of the story almost overshadowed the moral of the story. Also, the hero’s approach to distancing himself from his charge was kind of immature. However the storyline did improve once their issues were identified. Overall the story promotes forgiveness, love for oneself and others while showing the importance of helping others.
