The week before Heaven Dent’s New Year’s performance, Brent fractures his hand, which puts him out of commission for the show. Fortunately, it’s not permanent, but it leaves him and Hell dealing with the “what if,” not to mention Brent’s jealousy of the guitarist taking his place. as the band members and their partners struggle to adjust, the stress brings their personal issues to light. Heaven Sent needs more than a miracle to find their happily ever after. It needs...a new beginning.

For years, Gretchen’s main objective has been taking care of the boys of Heaven Sent. When her boys decide to take a hiatus, she decides to do the same. Before she can begin her summer off, Gretchen has one last public commitment. There, she meets tall, mysterious, and wickedly handsome Archer Thanos. Archer’s company has a video game based on Heaven Sent and he’s been trying to get in touch with her to discuss it. Their first meeting quickly turns into a discussion of another a nearly hotel room, sending Gretchen headlong into a whirlwind affair she hadn’t anticipated.

Only, someone isn’t exactly thrilled about Gretchen and Archer’s romance. Gretchen’s adorable new assistant, Owen, has been pining for his boss since he started working for her but he hasn’t had the courage to assert himself and tell her he wants her. As a result, Gretchen is completely blind to his feelings for her. And after meeting Archer, Owen knows he has no chance against the handsome devil. Besides, his own attraction to the older man is instant and overwhelming.

Owen thinks he’s not enough for Gretchen. Gretchen thinks Owen is far too young for her. Archer thinks they’re both ridiculous. He knows the three of them are just right for each other, if they can survive the revelations.

 "Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, male/male sexual practices, mnage (m/m/f with m/m sex/interaction)."

This one was a little weird getting into, each character can have only a paragraph or two and then in moves onto the next. It’s a bit dominating but only for a few pages.
They are written in the same voice of the books before (though it was a giving, though I hoped it would be the other way round, that hope wasn’t high).  
Anyway, it was a nice story, with all they lives running together, though there were some parts that I thought would have worked better if they were bigger, but all in all, the story was nice, sweet and showed us their lives, when something else is happening.

I really liked it, I thought it was great. I thought the whole thing went well together and I really liked the climax at the end, I think it worked well, and made you want just one more glimpse.

Okay, this wasn’t one of the best in the series, but then I’m still stuck in ‘Faith’ so that’s a little unfair, but then, thinking on it, I don’t think this would have lived up to it anyway, and maybe that was unfair to start a book thinking it wasn’t going to be the greatest.

I found, that yeah, it was a threesome, but the two ‘top’ characters where Archer and Gretchen and it seemed that—or maybe more, that I cared more about Owen’s part, he truly is the glue that keeps this relationship together and at the end when they realise this, I totally believe them.
There relationship just wouldn’t work if it weren’t for that ‘kid’.

I really liked that it was written from both Gretchen & Owen’s viewpoints, mostly because when it came to hers we got to go into Heaven Sent, even if it was only a quick, hi, hello,
With Owen it became about the relationship and the fact that he is actually quite young, both falling in love with the other two so deeply and yet he knows it’s never going to stay this way, even though he really wants it to.

It was a nice book, and though it was a little longer than some of them it seemed to fly by. Also, I have this feeling that I should note, it’s not that much about the woman in the sex. Yeah, they have sex with a chick, but a lot of the in detailed sex happens to mentions but seemed to me a little pulled back then anything else.
In sex, it was very much about Owen getting fucked, but both of them.

I’d also like to note, not that it matters, the series rocks, but the this book, and the fact of my writing is the reason that I got into the series, the reason that I found out that it was even sold in Australia. I would have missed such a great series if not for this one little book, and because of that, I love it more than it’s worth.
