Tristan Garrett leads a lonely life with only his friend-with-benefits Lawrence to keep him company. That is until Tristan glimpses demon Alastor standing across the room. Hoping to attract Alastor’s attention, Tristan moves to the dance floor but instead of Alastor, Tristan is joined by angel Machidiel. One night in the arms of Mac plus a year later in the arms of Alastor and Tristan is in love with two men each with mutual feelings for Tristan. 

Between Heaven & Hell is the first book in the Heavenly Sins series. My first impression was that this well-written plot is a sexy romantic comedy because of the amusing banner between Alastor and Mac, who are both vying for the attention of Tristan. Alastor is a demon capable of love, making him a rare breed in the underworld. Mac is constantly on a mission to save everyone, especially Alastor. Tristan is a good guy searching for a long term relationship. Secretly Alastor and Mac love each other; though being an angel, Mac is reluctant to break any heavenly rules. The demon and the angel soon discover there is something special about the human Tristan. Not only is Tristan capable of loving two men at the same time, he proves to be Alastor and Mac’s equal as illustrated in the intimacy scenes.  At this point, the comedy becomes a drama. Tristan is ensnared in a dilemma that could turn deadly, leaving Alastor and Mac scrambling to rescue Tristan before souls are lost.

L.M. Brown’s Between Heaven & Hell is primarily a good-humored, enjoyable saga with a heartbreaking resigned-for-now conclusion.
