While the human Ryan has made an enemy of the greatest Angel in Heaven–Anifiel, the Commander of Heaven’s Army–Ryan has somehow managed to befriend Anifiel’s kind and gentle battle companion, Vithius. Ryan adores the handsome Angel and is all too happy to teach Vithius the ways that humans make love.
But how much knowledge is too much? Is he corrupting Vithius as Anifiel has accused? Meanwhile, Demons are beating at the gates of Heaven with renewed aggression. Vithius believes he knows why the Demons are so determined, but Anifiel and Ryan refuse to listen to his theory, afraid to believe what it signifies about their relationship to each other. Can Vithius bring the three of them together?
Or will the desire that they continue to resist bring down the entirety of Heaven?

Review: Each book in the A:R Heaven collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
I am not usually one to read books by authors that I have not really connected with so Tricia was a surprise to me. She has a way of giving you a unique story that has a great story line and plot. The problem for me was that it seemed very long-winded even though it is not a truly long book. The title was catchy as well as the cover of the book, the series name was a bit dull though.
I had read the first book in this series and was a bit leery of reading the second book. It actually was a little better than the first one. However it is still a bit stiff to me. The characters were fully developed but a bit complicated and confusing.
I also don’t like cheating in a book which for me Anifiel was with Finn. Then there is Ryan who is getting interested in Anifiel, but he is best friends with Finn brought it way down for me.
Ryan and Vithius are moving forward, whereas Ryan and Anifiel are not. Anifiel turns his ass down every time Ryan tries something. The war is not going the way Ryan expects, for every time he fights it doesn’t go the way it should. To me Anifiel is with Finn yet when he opens up it is with Vithius not Ryan. Ryan is not moving forward in heaven like he should and it leaves him feeling hopeless and lost. That is until Anifiel steps up and makes Ryan share his feelings.
The characters were fully developed if not a bit hard to get into. There are a lot of emotions in this book but for me it did the exact opposite of what it should have. It came off too wordy for me to really get into.
I have realized that this is definitely not my kind of story.
