A stand alone story of Mykles' Heaven Sent series, Revelations is the band's loyal manager, Gretchen's story. As an urban professional who's devoted her life to the band, Gretchen finds herself with time on her hands when her boys take a year off. Determined to have fun, get her household in order and devote more time to herself, she starts with a bang with Archer Thanos. He wants Heaven Sent for a video game. He also wants Gretchen.
They have an affair but into the mix comes Gretchen's sweet, young assistant Owen. He's been in love with her since the minute they met but until Archer comes into their lives, nothing was even close to happening between them. Archer's bisexual bend makes Gretchen and Owen equally attractive to him and Gretchen finds herself in the same boat, Archer and Owen both making her squirm. Owen, happy to explore his sexuality and have Gretchen, is thrilled with the arrangement the three have. Too many secrets between the three make for drama and hurt feelings and in the end, can three in such a complex relationship work anyway?
I was ready not to like the story. The first fifty pages is very chick-lit in tone which is fine, but I was expecting romance. When Owen entered the story, that's when the emotion did and things started to get mighty interesting. With Archer and Gretchen's forceful personalities, the story needed the eager to please, tenderhearted, sweetness he offered and he made the other two characters better. The computer gaming and band story line aren't my usual world of preference but the plot focuses on the characters and their relationship rather than trying to impress with their career prowess which made it readable to someone who doesn't play video games. I give the story 4 smacks because it did start out slow, but it finished extremely well. I'd recommend it to people who enjoy some boy on boy action, as well as ménage-three ways. Heaven Sent 6: Revelations not only offers really great sex scenes, but also the love that makes the reader want it all to work out.
