Heaven Sent #1
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.My review guidelines can be found HERE.
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.
- I'm not usually into the illustrated covers...
- But this artist reminds me of Mucha (whom I love) with the heavy outlines and flowing hair
- Cover artist P. L. Nunn lured me in with this illustration and the other main covers in this series are growing on me.
- Kinda like a James Bond movie: "No, no James. No!" Kisses ensue. "No…" More kisses. "Oh…" Kisses and caresses. "Yes, James please!"
- Would have liked to see more interaction with Luc as an emotional rival/instigator.
- Taylor's obliviousness to his own come-hither signals intrigues me 'cause I am totally oblivious in real life.
- The breaks in time were kind of jolting BUT not bad, just different.
- Emotionally this story is a rollercoaster and feels very true to life including confusion and hurt.
- Loving a rockstar isn't easy, especially when coming out of the closet to yourself at the same time!
