After the war around 2060 something evil slipped into the devasted earth. This evil used to exist in a parallel dimension, watching and waiting for its chance to slither into our world.
To keep the balance God had no choice but to send his angels in to keep an eye on the devils and demons. About ten years ago God started using Tweeners to help the good side out. A Tweener is non-human, part angel and part devil what makes them a bit unpredictable at times.

Astra. Q Phelps is a Tweener, which means she’s part of the two sides – angel and demon. Her job however means she gets rid of demons on a daily basis. Life is ho-hum, until the day she’s attacked by an entity she’s never encountered before. Next, she’s summoned by a devil prince, who is, pun intended, devilishly gorgeous and sexy. He wants her on the devil’s side when a battle that is brewing will explode. But that’s not the end of it. The Good side, along with the big Him, want Astra to help t ...more

I loved this book! Some of the phrases were funny enough that I burst out laughing, which of course earned me some crazy looks from my family. The characters were well fleshed out, the storyline was great and of course left you wanting more. I am moving onto the second book and can't wait to read it!

Astra is awesome! I love her spunk and attitude, her take no shit attitude. Even when things are looking grim she sucks it up and brings everything she has. Dialle the sexy mysterious devil prince has his sights set on her. Is he friend or foe? Can a devil be a friend to a halfling? Throughout the story Astra is learning about herself and what she is capable of. Who are friends and who are foes. An interesting story line set in the future. The terms used to describe the future are comical and ma ...more

I really enjoyed this book. At times it was hard to keep up with names because they were similar. The book was really original and I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Love the humor in this story

One of the best things about Sam Cheever's writing is her sense of humor. This isn't a genre I usually read, but her excellent writing kept me turning pages, wondering what trouble Astra would get into next. And get into scrape after scrape is exactly what she did. This story was fun to read, and I appreciate the care Ms. Cheever took to make the story appealing to a wide variety of readers. I highly recommend this author and these stories to anyone who enjoys humor,

Genre: Fantasy Romance; My Rating 5 of 5!
I loved this book! This is not your typical story of angel versus devil! Instead it is a very imaginative tale set in the not so distant future of a Tweener, Astra, who is half angel and half devil. She spends her days fighting and vanquishing devils and demons with her interesting friend and partner, Emo, a red devil who is part angel. But things are heating up as Astra is pulled into a battle between the heads of two devil clans as outcast (and really n

What a fun fun read. I enjoyed this book so much. Ms. Cheever has a way of keeping her readers laughing and wanting more. This is a futuristic tale that is funny and sexy with a main character, Astra, who is a little sassy. Astra is what is known as a Halfling. She is half good and half bad. Which often puts her between a rock and a hard place. While Astra is clearly on the side of good, in a world that is on the verge of war, her bad or devilish side often takes over - especially when it comes ...more

This book is set in the future and our heroine is a halfling (part demon and part angel). She fights for the side of good and her partner is a demon. She is asked by the angels to help as there is a demon war brewing. A demon prince can talk to her in her mind and wants her to help him. There are twists and turns and a few suprises along the way. I enjoyed the heroines humor and word choices at times. I look forward to reading the rest in this series.

Hmmmm. Decent book but it left me feeling like I wanted more back story/ history. There was lots and lots of action though. There really wasn't enough substance for me to get connected with most of the characters. Heck I don't know if I really connected with the lead.... There was plenty of wit which was nice, good humor. I gave it one star for humor, one for interesting story idea, one for it being well written even though it's not one of my favorites.

WOW! I really love where this series is going. I've read quite a bit of Sam Cheever books and while this one was gifted in exchange for a honest review I have to say this one very well could be my favorite.

This book is just fantastic all the way around. You have angels, demons, and halflings and even some really nasty gargoyles. Plus who knew fruit cake was created by demons lol. Thank goodness it wasn't popcorn.

Astra is a great leading female character who is a halfing. Turns out she's more tha

Funny, Sarcastic and Fiery

Astra's life is full of action and distractions. She's not quite prepared for the twists and turns coming her way. But, she has the best guardian angel a half could have, right? Secrets, double backs and tertiary are everywhere. Astra beware.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. "To Hades with you fool, for God hath tired of you." This is Astra's favorite diatribe for each devil and demon she vanquishes back to the shadows. Astra is a funny, strong willed halfling of devil and angel. Her job in the future world of 2091 AD is to vanquish naughty misbehaving demons and devils back to the parallel world they emerged from. With the reluctant assistance of her personal angel and her partner in business another ...more

I received a copy of Bedeviled & Beguiled (Bedeviled & Beyond #1) or an honest review.
I found Bedeviled & Beguiled by Sam Cheever to be a cheekily written witty paranormal tale.
Futuristic take on the world as it could be with forces of both good and evil vying for supremacy.
An honest and humorous realist viewpoint in an alternate world.
Awesome characters to enjoy and chortle with.

Shelves: could-not-finish
I couldn't finish this... it was just too weird and out there for me. The writing was mediocre at best and the story line was really hard to follow. I got a little more than half way so I feel like I gave it a good try. Just wasn't for me.

Shelves: 2012, calibre-library
I really liked this book a lot more than I anticipated! I usually don't go for futuristic novels, but this was free, and I was away on vacation, so I loaded this one up on a whim. I almost couldn't put the book down!

Really great read

Loved the story's plot. Can't wait to read the next book. Plenty of action and guessing who is on the side of good.
