If you believe in soulmates this is a good story for you. Iris is evicted from her apartment after three fires related to her cooking. So she ends up renting a room from one of the firefighters, Riley, that had come to put out the fires. They are both in need of something...Iris a place to live until she leaves for her new job and Riley who needs money to remodel his home. There are a pair of angels who is in the relationship department and proceed to see to it that Riley and Iris find their love. The narration was great. Enjoyed listening to her bringing the characters to life.

I requested this book because I was curious about the angelic involvement in the story and how the rule breaking thing would pan out. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't more to that side of the story. It mostly centered around the actual couple and their building relationship. It was light hearted and kind of silly. Not really my cup of tea, but I won't dock my rating because it's not my favorite genre. For what it was, I thought it was well written and narrated. Take that as you will.
This book is really two threads that intersect at various moments. There are two angels in the relationship division of heaven who place a bet that promised to affect their careers for the rest of time. Their pet project, Riley and Iris, two humans who may or may not be soulmates.
It is interesting how the story switches from heaven to earth and back again, several times. The budding romance between fireman Riley and accident prone Iris is sweet and funny. It features a crumbling house, a crooked real estate developer, rambunctious pets and fire. All the while the angels watch, comment and interfere as required.
I enjoy how Jana Richards can make a short audiobook rich with humour, action, emotion and details without making the story overwhelming. Her stories are big on the feel-good factor and don't require a heavy commitment in time. Overall, very enjoyable.
