eBook Description: Levi Binder is a Miami bartender who cares about only two things: sex and surfing. Ostracized by his Mormon family for his homosexuality, Levi is determined to live his life his own way, but everything changes when he meets massage therapist Jaime Marshall.
Jaime is used to being alone. Haunted by the horrors of his past, his only friend is his faithful dog, Dolly. He has no idea how to handle somebody as gorgeous and vibrant as Levi.
Complete opposites on the surface, Levi and Jaime both long for something that they can only find together. Through love and the therapeutic power of touch, they'll find a way to heal each other, and they'll learn to live as sinners in a family of saints.

"5 Kisses!...A brilliant and beautiful story of recovery and redemption...Explores the eternal conflict between spiritual beliefs and the temptations and trials of the secular world, without ever crossing the line into sermonizing..."--Lisa, Top 2 Bottom Reviews
"5+ Stars!...Engrossing and incredibly moving!...The plot and characters moved me so much that I couldn't put this novel down, and for me to read a book that's 98K words straight through without switching is huge and a testament to the writing, especially in view of the tough themes. The characters were all fully fleshed out and the family dynamics were complicated as expected, but there was also a lot of love and friendship. I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it."--Wave, Reviews By Jessewave
"Golden Blush Award!...It will hold your attention till the very last page. I would strongly recommend Between Sinners And Saints to any fan of the M/M genre and will be reading this story again in the future."--Critter Nymphs, Literary Nymphs Reviews
"5 Delightful Divas!...A Recommended Read!...Let me start out by mentioning that I have read almost all of Marie Sexton's books and her latest book, Between Sinners And Saints, surpassed my expectations. This book has to be one of the most sweetest love stories I think I have ever read. I fell in love with both Levi and Jaime instantly. Ms. Sexton does such a wonderful job with each character by showing their struggles and how each one has to compromise in order to be truly happy. This was an emotional book about trust, love and true devotion. The love scenes were sweet and sensuous and I couldn't get enough of them. The care and love that Levi showed towards Jaime was truly beautiful. I hope that Ms. Sexton continues their story. I would love to find out what happens next with these two wonderful men! So, if you have never read any of Ms. Sexton's books than you are missing out! This is a book that you will really enjoy and have trouble putting down!"--Kelley, Dark Divas Reviews
His hand slid toward the inside of Levi's thigh, and Levi tensed. "Just relax, Mr. Binder." At least he pronounced it right.
"Please don't call me that."
"You prefer Levi?"
"Okay, Levi. Try to relax."
But Levi was finding it very difficult to relax. Jaime's soft hand was moving slowly up the inside of his thigh, stopping every inch or two to press into the muscle before moving on, and Levi's body was reacting in a way he feared was wholly inappropriate, given the circumstances.
"Relax," Jaime said again.
"I can't!" Levi snapped.
"Don't worry about it," Jaime said. His tone was clinical. Professional. Detached. "It's a common physical reaction. You don't need to be embarrassed."
"Easy for you to say."
"It's a natural response to physical stimulation--"
"No shit!" The stupid thing was, now they were talking about it, it was only getting worse. He was pretty much flying full mast now, and the thin sheet covering him certainly wasn't hiding it. "Are you almost done?"
Suddenly Jaime pushed harder on his tender thigh. It hurt so much Levi almost jumped off the table. "Ow! What the hell? Did you do that on purpose?"
"Took your mind off your other problem, didn't it?" Jaime said, without cracking a smile.
"You're a little bit sadistic, aren't you?"
"You're not the first person to think so."
