Lust and Ice by M.A. Church

Lust and IceLust and Ice by M.A. Church

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I so enjoy it when a book contains a bit of a moral without being preachy and in Lust and Ice, Kain learns the lesson of karma – what goes around comes around. As the blurb says, Kain is a spoiled rich kid; actually all of the members of the Bad Boys Club seem to be. Whether it is due to his obscene wealth and the privileges it affords him or if he was just born that way, Kain seems to be very egocentric and doesn’t care about his sexual partners beyond the night. Granted, by all indications he is not so narcissistic that he leaves them hanging, but his insuring that they get their “O” is more a point of pride for his ability than any concern for their sexual satisfaction.

It is Kain’s cold and calculated way that attracts the attention of Asmodeus, the Prince of Lust and ruler of one of the seven circles of Hell. I found Kain’s sexual encounter with Jim quite amusing. The sex itself was pretty hot, but it was Asmodeus’s presence and commentary that added an unexpected bit of humor to the book. I also liked the inclusion of the gym scene as it gave the reader the perspective of someone outside of Kain’s circle of friends regarding his behavior and cemented the need for Kain to learn his lesson. I suppose it was only appropriate that it be a demon to teach Kain his lesson and as the demon of lust, Asmodeus was superbly capable of hammering home Kain’s comeuppance. While I realize that Lust and Ice is the first book in the series, I suspect that the next book, Into the Darkness, is not a continuation of Kain’s story – but I do so hope that we get a little information on how Kain is faring in his new position.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
