Rating: 5 stars out of 5
Heaven Sent gets a hell of new keyboardist with a name to match. Hell Witting is an amazing musician and proves to be the answer to a sound that the band was missing. With lavender hair and big violet eyes, he captivates Brent Rose from the start, and not just with his music.
Brent knows better than to get involved with a member of the band. That just invites trouble and the last thing he wants is trouble for Heaven Sent. So he’ll just keep the attraction to himself. Doesn’t matter anyway. Hell couldn’t possibly want him. After all, Brent’s not gorgeous and flashy like the other members of the band.
When Hell makes his interest in Brent all too obvious, Brent is unprepared and unable to stay away. So, fine, if they just keep it at sex, everything will be all right.
Heaven Sent Series
Brett has always been the most insecure member of the Heaven Sent band. He has no confidence about his looks, although his musical talent was never in doubt. His best friend Luc and he had a strange relationship – friends with benefits – sex whenever either one wanted it but Luc mostly called the shots. Brent knew that Luc was only using him as a substitute for Reese, the man he really loved but had spurned 8 years ago, and the best part for Luc was that Brent looked a lot like Reese. Of course Brent didn’t want to be Reese’s lookalike and his confidence level was always below par since he felt that he would never be first with anyone. In addition, Brent hated the publicity that surrounded the band but knew that this was the price he had to pay to be part of such a high profile rock band; all he ever wanted was to be able to play his music and be left alone.
Then Heaven Sent hired a new keyboard player, German born Heller Witting, who set his sights on Brent the first time they met. Hell was determined to pursue and catch Brent, and while Hell in full chase mode was definitely hard to resist, Hell as a lover was incredible. Brent decided that as long as they could keep their relationship at just sex everything would work out fine, but Hell had other ideas which obviously led to a lot of conflicts.
Hell and Brent have always been my favourite couple in this series. Brent is so vulnerable and to partner him with the diminutive Hell with his violet hair and eyes and great personality and talent I think was a stroke of genius on the part of Jet Mykles. I loved that the guys made fun of each other – I also couldn’t get over Hell’s thongs 🙂 but dont be fooled, because someone less likely to be feminine you would not be able to find. For such a little man Hell’s personality was aggressive, powerful and over the top which was in direct contrast to Brent’s needy and insecure persona. There were so many layers in this book but the best part was the glorious sex when little Hell “topped” Brent and it worked out great for both characters.
Brent was really complex and had a lot of personal issues to resolve, including his sexuality, Hell’s jealousy of Luc, and the fact that he would not take no for an answer in terms of a relationship with Brent, which made the book more than just another contemporary yaoi romance with great looking “boy toys.” These books are not deep studies of the human psyche – they are what they are – fun stories about a hypothetical rock band with gorgeous looking men who have the best hair anywhere. I think Brent’s and Hell’s story added a little depth to the characters and in my humble opinion lifted this book above the others in the series. I loved the fun and games and if you’re a fan of this author you will definitely enjoy this series and especially Heaven Sent 3: Hell. Highly recommended
