Heaven and Hell by Kristen Ashley


This was my last Kristen Ashley novel to read before I've hit the end of the KA road (until she publishes more) and as sad as I am about that--Heaven and Hell was the best way to end it. I felt like KA tackled an issue in this novel that I didn't recall coming across quite like this in her other books: domestic abuse.

Kia was so amazingly wonderful--she worked so hard on herself and she did things exactly as I think I'd do it. She did things for herself to make herself happy after the horror that was her marriage (bonus points for going to Italy). I loved her heart and humor and honesty. She had me smiling and cheering her on the entire time.

And Sam...Sam was also wonderful and very much a KA alpha with his lip twitches and terse, yet funny, answers but he was also one of the few of her male characters who felt so much more damaged than I anticipated. He had some serious work to do, especially in the later half, to get Kia (and me) to trust her/us. Kudos to Kia for standing up to him and for herself.

Not only did I love Kia and Sam and their rom-com-ability; I adored the secondary characters. The friends and family of these two added so much to the already great book and I'm so very hopeful that we'll see them again.

Absolutely a fantastic read and now that I'm finished with them all, I feel the urge to start all over again.

After making a bad decision when she was very young, Kia Clementine finds herself in hell. Then, suddenly, within the time it takes for a shotgun to blast, her hell changes. Completely. Then out-of-the-blue she sees Sampson Cooper, her celebrity crush. A man the whole world knows is decent. A man the world knows is loyal. A man the world knows is good. All of these very unlike her now dead husband.

He’s sitting at a table right next to hers. And she catches his eye.

Terrified of the interest Sam shows in her, Kia finds the courage to go out with him. Not long after, she shares her dark secrets and Sam shares that he’ll stop at nothing to gain her trust.

As Sam leads Kia to heaven, Kia realizes that Sam is living his own hell. But although he gives her beauty and she gives him everything, he withholds his trust.

Even with all the beauty Sam shows her, Kia wants it all. But Sam forces Kia to make a heartbreaking decision and only she can decide. It’s all or nothing.
