Help A Bitch Out

HaBO-Bration: Douchebag-ish DJ and an Angel

Randall is looking for this book:

I’m having a really hard time finding this book…I know it came out in the
past 5 or 6 years. It is a contemporary novel in which a radio DJ is kind of
Howard Stern-ish. He gets knocked into a coma and meets an angel that tells
him he has to do a good deed in order to live. He’s assigned to a woman who
he falls in love with. Don’t remember much about her. I remember at the end
he’s back on the radio and she’s drawn to his voice and goes to the radio
station. He sees her and tells her not to move, comes running out and
happily ever after (sorry if i spoiled it…it’s what I remember the most!)

I don’t recall too many DJ heroes, so this one might be easy to find – anyone recognize this book?

    I think it’s Freudian Slip by Erica Orloff.

    Could it be “Freudian Slip” by Erica Orloff?

    There have been some fine DJ heroes in the past (notably Charlie in Crusie’s classic Charlie all Night (1996), and Jared in Barbara Delinsky’s Heart of the Night (1989)):  in fact, there was a bit of a vogue for them in the early 90s, as I recall.  But I’m afraid I don’t know this one.  And if I had come across it, the book would have been discarded the moment an angel appeared as a character!

    It is Freudian Slip.  As AgTigress said, this didn’t seem like anything I would like either, but based on the reviews, I decided to give it a try.  I’m so glad I did.  It was absolutely a wonderful book.  It had everything.  Angst, redemption, humor,heartbreak.  Fabulous story that I would recommend to anyone.  Don’t let the premise turn you off.  It’s way more than just your usual ghost/angel story.

    Darn- first HABO I’ve actually known.  Wonderful book.

    Hah, I was trying to remember why the plot sounded soooo familiar… I ordered Freudian Slip last month and haven’t read it yet, but I’ve read the back and the excerpt a bunch of times. So close to actually knowing a HABO! I don’t even mind about having the ending spoiled – I’m too busy being frustrated that I chose another book off my TBR pile yesterday and missed the chance to read this one in time.

    Yes, definitely Freudian Slip!  Loved this book, and would never have predicted when I started it how much I would like it.
