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 aims to introduce Tyler to a whole new level of game play.
Books about rock stars and music bands are hit or miss with me. I’ve read some really good ones and some bad ones. Thankfully Heaven was one of the good ones.
The band featured here is Heaven Sent and the story centers around the lead singer, Johnnie Heaven, and Tyler, the owner of a hotel the band visits. Johnnie is hot and sexy like all rock stars and is instantly smitten with Tyler, despite Tyler being straight. That doesn’t stop Johnnie from pursuing Tyler and it doesn’t take long for Tyler to give in.
Let me tell you there is a lot of sex in the novella and it is all hot. Smoking hot!
Gasping, Tyler dropped his hands and gripped the edges of the cushion, seeking contact with a world that no longer existed outside of that mouth. Johnnie did something that made his throat contract, and Tyler’s hips bucked.
I also loved this scene:
Johnnie picked up Tyler’s leg and encouraged him to turn over. “Trust me.”
Tyler obeyed, although he was at a loss as to why. Perhaps it was the fact that no blood remained in his head, all of it cramming into his cock so that it was hard enough to hammer nails.
This is definitely an erotic romance, emphasis on the erotic. Mykles excels at writing the sex scenes but doesn’t mean the other stuff is neglected, because it isn’t.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
