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 impe

This will sound obnoxious as fuck, but w.e. I haz good brainz.

Sometimes I really wish I didn't know anything.

Most of the time I'm grateful, you know, for knowing that

* rock stars detest travel;

* staying in a different hotel every night can be painfully disassociative and psychologically exhausting;

* most rock stars are—for whatever reason—very, very short;

For me, this story just felt unbelievable and not in the 'suspend reality and go with it' sort of way.

Warning for spoilers---

First, I want to say that I think non-com and questionable con can be sexy as hell. But in this book, no one- not the author, or Tyler, no one felt it was bad to act in this way. The way this was handled by the author ended up ruining it for me.

This is the way I see this story: Rockstar forces himself on a straight guy when he learns straight guy may be a bit curious and

Frankly, I'm underwhelmed. Is this what I can expect from the rest of the books by the infamous Jet Mykels?

The story was kind of... bland. Not necessarily a bad read, but an almost generic GFY story filled with stereotypes. The Rockstar, the Responsible Insecure Boy, the Terminally Ill Family Member to increase the drama if needed... And (naturally?) sex being pretty much the answer to everything and it (and video games) being the basis for a solid love relationship.

I didn't like Johnnie for o

This being my first full length m/m romantica I am glad I enjoyed so much. The characters were well defined in thier attraction to each other. The story was well written and paced so that you had time to take a liking to the development.

I learned that even m/m romances can be just as sweet and complex or sizzling as any of the other romantica I have read. I do plan to read more from Jet Mykles. Thanks Heather!

I guess I'm the only one from my flist who hates this story *shrugs*. There is a reason why I'm not really fond of GFY theme, when the story is like this one.

When is "No" means "No" in M/M? If it's a woman and she says "No" and the guy is pushing it, it becomes rape, right? And here in this story, I clearly remember Tyler says "No" over and over again, and the cocky, arrogant, Johnny just pushes it. Doesn't that border of rape? And Luc pushing a sexual advance to make Tyler feels uncom

I opened this one up because I wanted a quick read. (It's not long.) What I didn't expect was a quick pant. LOL. Oh, my!

In Jet Mykles bio it states something about her ability to write sex. Good god! Not that the sex was overly descriptive &/or accurate or whatever to make me think Jet an expert on gay sex, it was the amount of lust she wrote into Johnnie that sucked me in. (Do I bother saying, "no pun intended?") He was written as a walking predator. His goal was to make Tyler beg, and I wa

I read this for the first time in 2010, I was inspired by Lilli to reread and see how I see it now.

I reread the story of Tyler, the hotel manager of the 'Weiss' and Johnnie Heaven, rock star extraordinaire.
I remembered it as a favorite and that I enjoyed it immensely.
Now after rereading it, I'm reminded a bit of the young teen love you think is so wonderful and the best ever and as you get older you see that maybe you are glad it didn't work out after all.
I still enjoyed this story, but Tyler'

I was totally sucked into this series by Jet Mykles. Johnnie and Tyler are likeable and the cast of supporting characters enhance the story rather than detract.

This is one of the few series of books that I have read more than once. I felt like I knew all of these men and their partners by the time I had read them all...and I am looking forward to the next edition, even if it does look like it will be a menage for Gretchen.

I am happy to meet up again with Johnnie, Tyler, Luc, Reese, Brent, Hell

This is yet another fun sexy read by Jet Mykles...

Tyler is a huge fan of the band Heaven Sent. He has been a fan since the beginning... so when they agreed to play at the opening of Tyler's new nightclub, he was thrilled.

The minute Tyler sees the lead singer Johnnie, he is enthralled. There is something about him... but Tyler isnt gay, so he cant figure out whats going on. When Johnnie and Tyler start talking, they find out that they both love video games! Tyler starts going to Johnnies room n

This and book 2 are my favourites of this series. I really loved this one because it was a sexy and sweet intro. I liked the characters and liked the introduction of the other ones who would get their own books. Damn, I should've written a review when I finished reading it, which was a long time ago. I was lazy at writing reviews back then. It doesn't matter anyway, because I gave it five stars so that's enough to tell you it's a good 'un.

I hate that it seems that all I am doing lately is writing a bad review. I guess when you read the quantities I do, you are bound to hit as many bad books as you do good books. That was stale. There was no real story, the characters were just names on a page. Gosh that sounds harsh but for me, it's true. I'm glad I didn't buy the rest n this series. Oh, and I HATE the artwork on the books in this series. Sorry!

I've been putting off reading Jet Mykles for a while. I though it would not live up tp my expectations...but it did I was a great little story. Sexy rock stars, sweet men who don't know they're gay, what's not to love.

Hope the others are as good as this one.

Ok, I don't know how I feel about this book. Tyler Purcell owns a hotel and to save the hotel him and his business partners decide to open a nightclub in the hotel. To help promote the new club, they hire Heaven Sent a popular band that they are fans of. Enter Johnnie Heaven, the lead singer of Heaven Sent. He is sexy and everybody's fantasy. Turns out that Tyler & Johnnie share a love of video games, which is what brings them together and from there it's up to them to figure out how to go f ...more

The book is really enjoyable and I'm looking forward to reading the next one because what's not to like about rockstars? But I don't know if this book leaves me more frustrated or disappointed.

The story is short and in the point of view of Tyler, the young hotel manager. I think the fact that I couldn't see the story through the eyes of Johnnie may be the reason why I couldn't like Johnnie Heaven, the rockstar (I think he's super hot and sexy, but I don't like him). He's so pushy all the time, i

I don't really want to give the wrong impression here because I did enjoy this read. It just had moments of unbelievability or it felt rushed. It also had lovely, sincere scenes that felt genuine. I think I'll continue on with the series because the writing was strong enough to warrant it, and because who doesn't like a sexy gay rocker story?

Tyler jumped. then cursed because he'd jumped. Then cursed because he'd cursed.

Simply put..I loved this book. The rumors of dubcon, the low ratings you might have seen--toss them a side because the story of Johnny (the lead singer for the wildly popular rock band Heaven Sent) and Tyler (owner of the Weiss Hotel) is not only hot and delicious it is also tender and amazingly sweet.

The two men collide and after admitting that both are interested in women, Johnny sets about convincing Tyler to give in to his secreted passion for all things male. The story watches as their feel

Johnnie and Tyler are my second favorite Heaven Sent couple.

My thoughts after rereading Heaven yet again on 7/7/09:
I really love this series. I keep rereading them and I enjoy them just as much, and maybe a little bit more, each time. This story reminds me of the Japanese yaoi manga that were my first introduction to m/m romance. Johnnie meets Tyler and wants him, he goes after him and doesn't take no for an answer, but he's still kind, sweet and considerate while doing so. Tyler is confused, he

I really enjoyed this fast-paced rocker story and could kick myself for allowing the cover to dissuade me from reading it sooner. Not only was it a rocker story, which I love, it had a lot of dialogue, another major plus, and it contained a little dub-con, also an instant hit for me. Plus, the cover actually has a meaning, it makes sense, and is relevant to the storyline. In other words, this is a great story that I allowed my preconceived notions sway me away from; don’t make t

I loved loved loved this! Why was it so good?! I was just looking for a bit of fluff to hold me over till I decided what I really wanted to read. But instead, I ended up wanting this to last forever! I think it deserves more of a 4.5/5.

This was my first 'Gay For You' story, and I think that is really what did it for me. I loved all of Tyler's insecurities, and the fact that he loved Johnnie so much he had to be with him regardless o

I’ve read this book for the DIK Book Reading Challenge and originally posted this review at my blog.

This is the very enjoyable first book in the Heaven Sent series which is about a rock band. In this first installment we meet the lead singer of the group, Johnnie Heaven. He and his group are booked to play at the opening of this new nightclub at the Weiss Strande Hotel. Tyler’s family owns the hotel and he’s running it since his father is sick with cancer. The nightclub is a new venture that sho

This book reminded me a bit of the Gravitation series by Maki Murakami. They both were gay romance related, featured a rock star and a fan of the rock star. It also seemed very anime like with its cover art and some Japanese references within the book.

The book was very well written with the story flowing very smoothly and characters with some depth and realism to them. The two main characters are Johnnie Heaven, the internationally known rock star, and Tyler Purcell, the ower of a five-star hot

Not quite as good as I remember it being from the first time reading, but still a fun read.

Pretty light, no real drama as such, but a good way to pass the time. Mostly sex orientated but with a few laughs and the odd bit of romance in its own way.

This was the first m/m romance i ever read and i was so hooked i now write them. I would give five stars to practically every Jet Mykles book i've read (maybe one or two four stars would creep in). The books are wildly popular and deservedly so. but if by some chance you haven't read Heaven or other JM books, just know she has a very particular aesthetic. She's not writing any semblance of gritty reality. She writes fantasy, even when it's contemporary, as many of her books are. Her heros are wi ...more

4.5 stars - This book was amazing, seriously. The whole series is perhaps one of my favourite in the M/M genre (along with Amy Lane's Promises series) and I absolutely love this first instalment.

Tyler and Johnnie were a wonderful couple. I adored Johnnie and his rock star and 'bad boy' persona, because although he acts cocky and a little too confident at times, he also has a big heart and he genuinely cares for Tyler. It's really lovely. And Tyler? Boy, don't get me started on Tyler! He was grea

I liked the second half of the book better than the first half. The first half just seemed to be Johnnie bullying Tyler into sex. I got tired of the "I'm not gay!" followed by "I'll show you, you are gay!"

Fiction implies unreality, but this story took that concept way beyond acceptable limits. Made no sense at all.

Jet is a writer of sexual fantasy with a firm belief that all men are at least partially gay, that vampires are just people with a liquid diet and shapeshifters live on every block.

“Say you’ll marry me.” Sighing melodramatically, Tyler wound his free arm around Johnnie’s neck. He pulled back enough to look again into Johnnie’s eyes. “Fine. But why do I get the feeling I get to be the bride?” 2 likes
