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 possible 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 in unprepared and unable to stay away. So, fine, if they just keep it at sex, everything will be all right. won’t it?

Darien’s best friends are the other guys in the rock band Heaven Sent. The three—now four—of them are closer than brothers to him and he’s happy that they’ve all found their life mates. He is. He doesn’t at all mind that each of those like mates are men. He doesn’t.
In fact, that’s just it. Maybe there’s something to this gay stuff. He’s never been particularly interested before, but after a short, failed marriage, he’s willing to open himself up to new possibilities. Especially if one of those possibilities is the gorgeous lawyer who handled his divorce, Christopher Faith.
Trouble is, Chris doesn’t seem to want to believe that Darien’s serious. Well, sure, Darien’s never slept with a guy before, but he’s allowed to change his mind. Isn’t he?

Shit man, I love these books, this series! It’s the fucking bomb. Mykles just has a way of writing something that hits home and stays lodged in your brain till the final moment, right up until the end when you want to flip the thing back to the start and start all over again.
They are just a great fucking series. Read it.

This one is a little different, since both Hell and Faith are pretty much the same story. Yeah, things are real different, mostly because the characters are, but it’s more about the fact that one half wants the relationship and the other is scared shitless of it.  
Yeah, in Hell, it’s Brent that’s the scaredy cat and in Faith, well, Faith is.

It’s really odd; I didn’t think that they could possibly be better than the first two stories of this series. I read some Goodreads reviews which told me that they were going to be, but still....
They were great, better than the first two and yet...not. The first two, I suppose are about strong males going after men that weren’t really all that into them (at face value, they were really into them) these are...well, I’ve said it before.

The story in these ones are very similar, fast and yet there’s a harshness to their softness that has you falling head over heels for all four characters.
They are great.
But I think that I liked these books the most was actually because they were written from the band member’s points of view and so you got to see the band, well, recording, but it’s nice and fun to have all those personalities back and in there ‘natural’ environment, rather than being the people that are on the outskirts coming in.

I will say this, I did like Hell better. I loved Brent as a character; I think it was great to have him going through all his problems and Hell was just....
I don’t know, but I Hell was my favourite out of the two books, though Faith was heartbreaking and made you feel something while reading it, something that I didn’t in the first one.
Really, the ending of Faith is so much more than any of the rest.
I think this is because all three books before this had bad breaks before the reconnection, a way that was very different, or at least maybe, it was more because we got to see what Darien was thinking and planning, where as the was them some ones wanting them back (though not in Brent’s but that was different).
