Review: Heaven Sent 1: Heaven

Heaven Sent 1: Heaven
by Jet Mykles

The Weiss Strande Hotel is in trouble. Business just isn't what it used to be when Tyler’s father ran the family-owned hotel. On top of business being down, dad's sick with cancer and bills have skyrocketed.

Desperate to save his family interest, Tyler and his best friend sink their hopes and what's left of their money into a new venture: a nightclub at the hotel. It's imperative that the White Room is a success, or else the hotel will go under. Lady Luck seems to be with them, however, because they manage to sign the mega-popular rock group, Heaven Sent, to play the grand opening.

Already a huge fan of the group, Tyler couldn't be more excited to welcome them to his hotel. He's not at all prepared for the bomb of lust that hits him when he's finally face-to-face with the painfully gorgeous lead singer, Johnnie Heaven. No, it couldn't be lust. Yes, Johnnie's probably the most beautiful person he's ever seen, but Tyler is straight. It must be a misguided form of hero worship that he's feeling.

Tyler finds out that he and Johnnie share an obsession: video games. When Johnnie invites Tyler to his room to play, Tyler jumps at the chance. Who wouldn't snap up the opportunity to spend time with their idol? He and Johnnie have a great time with the games, but Tyler soon discovers that Johnnie's got more in mind. The rock star's aims to introduce Tyler to a whole new level of game play.

Heaven is the first in a Yaoi inspired series called Heaven Sent by Jet Mykels. The covers of the series have all been done by PL Nunn and are gorgeous. They were part of the reason I was initially drawn to the books and are some of the first M/M books that I’ve read. An excellent start!!

When Tyler’s family hotel business gets into some financial difficulty he and his friends decide to open a nightclub at the hotel. His father is terribly ill and the pressure is mounting to make the hotel a success. To open the new club Tyler extends an invite the popular band Heaven Sent to play.

Tyler is a huge fan of the band and when he gets over his initial moments of being star struck he strikes up a friendship with Johnnie, the lead singer. They spend time playing video games together in the evenings and Tyler starts to feel more than friendship for the magnetic singer. Having just recently split up from his fiancĂ©, he finds his feelings confusing because he’s is straight… Johnnie is a sexy and intense man and he wants Tyler and lets him know it on no uncertain terms. He is not easily dissuaded by Tyler’s initial nervousness about the situation and he goes after what he wants.

This was one of my first M/M romances and I just loved it. Johnnie is so into the gorgeous Tyler from the start, and I loved the tension of him trying to seduce Tyler with stolen kisses and some hot foreplay. He is a forceful character and very single minded in what he wants. Tyler is softer and just a little bit confused about having feelings for another guy and he worries about how a rock star like Johnnie could really want to spend time with someone like him. He is sweet and a perfect foil for Johnnies magnetic sexuality.

I really enjoyed the romance in this story it was loving, hot and so very satisfying. You’re also introduced to the rest of the band and the glimpses into who they are make you drool just a bit for their story!

A fab read and a total 5 cherries!
