Book Blurb

When an angel and a demon fall for the same mortal man there is only one solution…share him.

Halloween night at the Inferno club always draws a crowd. When Tristan spots a stunningly gorgeous man dressed as a demon across the dance floor he sets out to draw his attention, little realising he has already gained the notice of another. The demon disappears into the throng of revellers, but with the heavenly handsome Machidiel in his arms, Tristan doesn't mind.

Even though Mac warns him they can never have more than a one-night stand, Tristan longs to see the man who gave him the best sexual experience of his life again.

One year later, Tristan opens his door to find Alastor, the demon from the Inferno, who claims they have a date tonight.

Alastor may be the one man who can make Tristan forget Mac. Little does he realise Mac isn't as far from his reach as he believes. When Mac reappears he has a proposition for Tristan and Alastor, one that means breaking rules and potentially getting him stripped of his wings.

A ménage formed between an angel, a demon, and a human means the sex is hotter than hell itself, but only time will tell if the relationship they have forged together is made in Heaven or Hell.

Book Review

How could I possibly resist a story which nails a few of my triggers? Angels and demons? Check. All male ménage. Double check. The possibility of three gorgeous men, risking it all, for love? Check, check, and check. I'm fairly certain nobody could blame me, though. 'Between Heaven & Hell' is LM Brown's first book in her series, 'Heavenly Sins'. This is a rerelease of the book which was originally with a publisher who shall not be named. However, it's my first opportunity to experience it, so I was looking forward to the read.

Machidiel (Mac) is a gorgeous angel. Alastor is a seriously hot demon. And Tristan is the stunning human who caught both of their eyes. Mac and Alastor finally admit to their attraction for each other, and Mac comes up with a working plan that'll keep them from getting in trouble. For, you see, it's forbidden for angels and demons to have any relationship, but especially a sexual one. The plan? Well, they both want Tristan almost as much as they want each other, and they've never found anyone else like him in centuries of looking. So they decide to share him. Of course, first they've got to drop all of this info on Tristan to see what he thinks.

"Tristan took a breath to steady his nerves. “If relationships are forbidden between angels and demons, where does it leave the three of us?”
“Skating on very thin ice,” Alastor replied with a chuckle."

Their ménage is going very well, until the one friend Tristan has shows his true colors and betrays him. Unfortunately, Tristan remembers none of it, and in an attempt to save Tristan's life, Mac loses something very important to him. Alastor is determined to get to the bottom of this, and must venture into the Underworld to get answers. Oh, none of them like the answers they get. Not. One. Bit. But what's done is done, and the most Mac, Alastor, and Tristan can do now is learn to survive the changes coming at them.

This was a very good book, which I enjoyed. I experienced a number of frustrating moments, which I think came from predictability and repetitiveness. However, I still liked these guys and I'm looking forward to their next book.
