Andrew enjoys the company of women, perhaps too much. The council in heaven had enough of his sexual promiscuities and they've sentenced him to return to earth to destroy demons. To make matters more difficult, if he has sex with a woman he has to stay an extra year. Without clothes, money, or food, his task seems impossible.

Emily is in a world of trouble. She leaves her f

First Kill by Mary Abshire a heaven sent five-star read. This is the first book in the heaven-sent series, and it really does kick the series off with a bang. It’s the first Mary Abshire book I have read and I am sure I will be reading lots more by her. Mary writes great characters and really makes you care about them, she writes with care and passion that you don’t see often.

Well! Andrew has been a VERY naughty boy in heaven, but he can't help it, the Ladies love him! (who would guess you could be punished for having too much sex? Go Figure!) So his punishment is to come to earth to kill 6 demons - while he's here he can't have sex with any woman - or it will add another year to his sentence for each woman.

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'

First Kill by Mary Abshire Rated 4 stars

Andrew is an angel who resides in heaven. That's where angels live right? They do as long as they follow protocol. Andrew has a problem. He likes having sex with women... A lot. The problem is he keeps getting into trouble for being too sexually promiscuous. Andrew doesn't really see a problem because all the women come onto him and they seem to want it just as much as he does. The council has already reprimanded him more than a few times. His punishments

Hmm! Interesting start to a series!!

Ok. Quick run thru.

We have 2 main characters-

Emily - who is on the run after ditching her best friends body at the side of the road after she died from an OD after a night out. It was a total panic move but it's a case of -its done now, so gotta live with it.

First Kill is the first book in the Heaven Sent series, by the talented Mary Abshire. It is a wonderful paranormal, action/adventure.
Andrew is a resident of heaven, who has just appeared before the heavenly council, on trial for his blatant promiscuity and flagrant disregard of the rules, as well as ignoring his previous warnings and punishments. This is not the first time his love of women has gotten him into trouble, but this time the outcome was quite different from past hearings. Thi

First Kill by Mary Abshire. I give this book 5/5 stars. The theme of this book is angels, humans, and demons. This is the first book in The Heaven Sent Series.
Emily is running because of the fact that something happened. She finds a guy lying in the middle of the road naked. Her life is different now that she's helping him do things. The first quote I chose for her is when he tells her the truth: “I’ll be honest, everything you’ve told me sounds like a load of poo.” The second quote is her frien

First Kill in the first in what I hope will be a long series. Andrew is an angel who is sent back to Earth as punishment for sleeping with far too many ladies in Heaven. The conditions of the punishment are that he has to kill 6 demons, who are in human bodies, before he can return. Oh and if he sleeps with any women an extra year will be added to his stay.
The demon’s names are provided in the form of a tattoo that appears on Andrew’s forearm.

Kirst Kill by Mary Abshire is the first book in the Heaven Sent series. This was my first book from Mary Abshire and it was beyond amazing!! I was hooked from the beginning. At first it seems like its an everyday person who is meeting with the council, but then you see the word “heaven”. I hadn’t read a book about angels and demons before so this was the first of that type. I really enjoyed it. This book drew me in within the first few pages.

Andrew is an angel. Literally. But apparently he isn’t a good angel. It’s his third time before the counsel for sleeping with too many women. Sure he has had many lovers, but they have always come to him willingly and he gave them just what they wanted. Apparently the council doesn’t agree that this is okay. They sentence him to go back to Earth to kill 6 demons. That he can handle. But there’s a stipulation: for every

I voluntarily agreed to read this book for my honest review and as usual Mary Abshire didn't disappoint. This book was something else entirely. Not what I was expecting, and that is what made me like it even more. Andrew is an angel set back to earth as punishment for his sexual rendezvous with the women. In Hus first night back he comes across Emily or more so she stumbles across him in his birthday suit. Not knowing each other she still agrees to help him with his task.

Andrew is an angel who has to face the council for once again for having sex with women in heaven. The council believes that this is not proper behavior but Andrew thinks that they are old and can’t relate to his 26-year-old self, after all they were all consenting adults. However, no one cares what he thinks and they sentence him to be sent

First Kill by Mary Abshire is the first in the Heaven Sent series and I cannot wait for the next one!

Andrew is a very very promiscuous angel. He has committed sins again and again with zero thought to the consequences bestowed on him by the council of old boring people in heaven. It's not his fault women fling themselves at him for consensual horizontal mambo! If it's consensual then what's the big deal? Well, the big deal is not giving a drat about punishments and consequences and the council h

Andrew is an angel in heaven who has already been punished twice for having sex with way too many women, and is now in front of the council for the third time. You would figure that 5 years as a courier and 20 years as a janitor in a military institution would have made him change his ways but obviously not. So for his third punishment he will be sent to back to earth to kill 6 demons and if he sleeps with a woman another year on earth is tacked onto his sentence. He

Wow! First Kill by Mary Abshire is truly an original and fun story to read. This was such a joy to read and an amazing adventure that I got sucked into. When I read the blurb, I was completely intrigued and when I started reading, I simply couldn’t stop. There is so much more to this than a man on a redemption/ punishment spree. There is a woman hurting and trying to run from her past. There is true heartbreak here and is something to behold.

Once again Mary Abshire as created a fantastic, character driven world. In First Kill, she tackles the concepts of Heaven, Hell and what's in between. Set in a completely modern world, Chicago of all places, First Kill introduces you to Andrew, not Andy, and Emily. Andrew is sent back to kill demons as a punishment for, wait for it, having too much sex in Heaven. Right? I guess that 3rd offense really is the dozy!

First Kill is the first book I have ever read from Mary Abshire and I have to say that I love her writing style. In this book we meet an angel named Andrew who is being punished for misconduct and is sent to Earth to do the councils bidding. During his time on Earth he meets Emily who takes him in and helps him when nobody else will. They become friends even though it seems like Andrew would love to be more than that with her.
