5 out of 5 stars
The story First Kill (Heaven Sent Book 1) by Mary Abshire is a suspenseful book with both demons and angels. Andrew has been sentenced to return to Earth to destroy demons because of his sexual promiscuity. Even worse is if he has sex with a woman while on Earth he has to stay an extra year. He has no clothes, money or food. His task seems impossible. Emily has left her family, job and home to start a new life. She is driving down a country road when she finds a naked man lying in the middle of it. He asks for her help, she can’t resist. Over the next few days, Andrew struggles to keep his hands to himself and Emily is determined to find out the truth about Andrew. Once the truth is revealed, will it end any chance that Andrew has with her?
This is an awesome story! I love stories with angels and demons and this one not only has an amazing plot but amazing characters as well. The main plot of the story is of Emily running from her past and Andrew asking for help to kill a demon. The situations that they run into are dangerous and Andrew doesn’t like the fact that Emily is in danger. Emily’s character is strong and independent. She is sometimes reckless in her actions, but she has experience in protecting herself. Andrew is such a charmer. Everything has changed so much since he has come back to Earth and needs to adapt. The story does a good job detailing the background of both Andrew and Emily. This story is suspenseful and thoughtful at the same time.
I highly recommend this book as a wonderful read that will keep your interest from the first chapter to the ending page. I hate when a book I love ends, however since this is book one I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Emily is on the run - taking the backroads to avoid the authorities - when she nearly runs over Andrew, who is the middle of a deserted road and he's naked. What's a girl supposed to do? Help him or leave him there with no other help in sight on this cold night? And what's with the tattoo that suddenly appears on his arm?
Emily is a basically decent person, she's definitely made some wrong choices and the last one is a doozie - dumping her best girlfriend's body (there's a story there but I'll let you discover that) - maybe she IS heading in the wrong direction. I liked Emily she seems to be trying to do the right thing with the cards she's been dealt.
Andrew is fun, I loved all the 80's references. In spite of his attraction to Emily, he really is trying to do things right this time. He enlists Emily's help and they are in for a wild cross-country road trip!
I also found myself LOVING Troy - Emily's Best friend, who may not be all on the up and up but he is loyal to her and will do pretty much anything to keep her safe.
Enjoyed both the action and the attraction tension between the two main characters. The adventure had its share of wrong turns but eventually the road leads to the ending point in this story and it didn't disappoint. I look forward to where the quest takes our unlikely couple in the next book.
I voluntarily and honestly reviewed this Advanced Readers Copy.
First Kill was my first read by Mary Abshire, but I will definitely be reading more!! Told in Dual POV of the two main characters, Andrew and Emily. The story flowed very well and I never felt as though I was missing any pieces of the story as it was all very well written.
First Kill follows Andrew, who is an angel in heaven, who is being punished for having sexual relations with too many women, so as punish!entire he is sent to Earth to kill 6 demons. The catch, he must return naked AMD for every time he has sex another year will be added to his sentence. Can the handsome angel keep it in his pants and also muster up the courage to kill?
Emily is running. Running away from home, her family, work and her best friend Troy. On her way to switch cars, she comes upon a man,Andrew, in the middle of the road and he's naked. Being the kindhearted woman she is, she stops and gives him a ride. Together they are making their way to the mysterious address that magically appears on Andrews arm giving the instructions for the demon he must kill. Emily doesn't believe Andrew but decides to help him so he can prove he's really an angel. Will she be able to stay away from Andrew and his good looks? Will she get her answers?
Andrew is sentenced to earth to kill demons for having to much sex in heaven. He meets Emily and wants to help her but also needs her help getting to his first assignment. As he is trying to figure her out and hear her story, he develops feelings for hear but he isn't allowed to have sex with her unless he wants another year added to his sentence. Will he find the demon and be able to kill it? Will it prove himself to Emily? And will Andrew be able to plead a case for Emily's soul to make it to heaven?
I really enjoyed this book and I hope we get to see more from these characters as I'm curious to see how things play out for them.
