Book Description

Life is rough when you’re gorgeous, rich, talented and so sexy that the media won’t leave you alone.

It’s certainly the truth in Christian Lasher’s case. He returns to the neighborhood of his childhood to escape the spotlight, hungering for a change in his creative endeavors. In the midst of his soul searching he meets Megan and is captured by the tantalizing hint of her hidden fires. Megan knows nothing about his wild, rebellious youth or his career as a rock star—and Christian would prefer to keep it that way.

There was much, much more to her than the role of a fragile victim.

Megan Shreve is a sculptor with creative depths and passions that tragedy had forced into the shadows. When she looks into Christian’s eyes she sees herself for the first time as an exciting, sexy woman. She longs to discover more of herself in Christian’s arms and in his bed.

Two passionate souls destined for one another—unless the stifling roles imposed by tragedy and fame rip them apart.

From the Author

If you enjoyed Gateway to Heaven, be sure to check out my steamy, emotional serial romance, THE AFFAIR, releasing every Tuesday beginning September 16th!
Dear Reader,

I'm happy to be re-releasing Gateway to Heaven, a contemporary romance novel previously published with Whiskey Creek Press. Gateway has long been a favorite story for me, perhaps because the romance between these two unique, talented, yet very different people may seem unlikely at first glance, yet perfect upon reflection.

I hope you enjoy this special love story.

Beth

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking romance January 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read 3 other novels by Beth Kery as well as her novella that was free for Kindle during the holidays and I absolutely love her writing. But Gateway to Heaven took me by surprise because it was such a beautiful touching romance that I can't stop thinking about days later. Yes, many of her other novels are steamy erotic romances but this novel remained sweet and emotional while still keeping the sexual tension alive that made me hate when the book ended. I will definitely be rereading this book and hope romance junkies will also discover this amazing jewel of a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly An Amazing Story January 30, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
Megan Shreve is a sculptor with creative depths and passions that tragedy had forced into the shadows. When she looks into Christian's eyes she sees herself for the first time as an exciting, sexy woman. She longs to discover more of herself in Christian's arms and in his bed.

Two passionate souls destined for one another--unless the stifling roles imposed by tragedy and fame rip them apart.

Having just recently read Beth's steamy novel Subtle Magic, I found Gateway to Heaven to be a very pleasant surprise. Moving from an erotic romance to a sweeter, contemporary wasn't quite what I expected.

And I went in with a chip on my shoulder - contemporary stories of any kind aren't generally my thing. Somebody smack me now for ever ounce doubting.

Beth is an extremely versatile and amazing writer. She has a way of creating tension - both emotional and sexual -that will leave you panting. Especially when it comes between Christian and Megan - they don't even need to get naked to take your breath away! Take a chance and go click on the links above and buy this book! The story, with it's cast of crazy and intense characters, will sweep you off into another world from the first page.

I chose this book because I thought the blurb sounded good and I was not disappointed.

Megan is the full time art teacher at the St. Pat's parish school in her home neighborhood near Chicago. She is a woman who carries on almost a shadow existence due to her past and everyone treats her as fragile and unapproachable to men because of being a childhood rape victim. Christian is one of the St. Pat's kids who grew up and became a famous rockstar. He comes home for the charity block concert every year with his band. This year, Christian has some big decisions to make about his music career so he has also come home to think. Then the day he is visiting Father Gregory on his tour of the school, he sees a beautiful woman with a student. It's the same women that has caught his eye when he met her near his building and in the park where she was playing with her little girl. He felt instant attraction and now he meets her. Megan is equally taken by the tall handsome alumni that Father Gregory is showing around, but then is interrupted in the process of meeting him when her brother in law arrives to drop off her niece. Suddenly, the man stiffens up and behaves funny even though he helps her with her niece and the bag when she walks home. She discovers that he lives in her building. He comes into her apartment and in the process of talking discovers that she is just babysitting. Her niece is taken with Christian and on the spur of the moment he decides to accompany them to American Girl.
From there, their relationship begins to blossom. That is until Megan's sister interferes with snide accusations about Christian and drives a wedge between them. Megan had no idea that Christian is a famous musician/singer and he is terrified to hurt her when he finds out about her past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gateway to Heaven by Beth Kery July 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved the romance mixed with tragedy. Gives one hope. The sexual tension is gratifying. This book also shows that through past happenings a trust in GOD and family gives you strength. There are people in this world who do things to children and when these lowlife people get their just rewards and the ones hurt go on and succeed successfully it makes you know that their is and will always be a higher who looks down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful story October 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book that I read by Beth Kery. It was a free read but a huge diamond amongst many bad freebies. The story was so touching and emotional. The characters, fabulous, with the former bad boy rocker and the naive artist. I read this book in one sitting, staying up late into the night because I just had to read to the end. I held off writing this review for a few days because I just couldn't put into words how much I loved this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different take on Rock Star Romance September 20, 2013
By JJH
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I really like romances based on alpha rock-stars, that fall in love with the quiet girl-next-door. This book had that, but was done in a way that was totally different from other books I have read with this theme. I felt the author dealt with the issue of child abuse well--fortunately, I have not been involved with a situation like this, so I don't know if it is an accurate account of what someone who grows up after dealing with such an ordeals feels, but in my opinion, it was portrayed sensitively. I thought the flow of the story was good. I would recommend and read more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Beautiful! June 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Gateway to Heaven is a moving story that had me feeling so many different emotions that I felt I was right there beside the two lead characters and their families from the start to the very end. Christian Slasher a sexy as sin hard rock star and Megan Shieve a prim and proper teacher/sculptor are instantly drawn to one another and a touching love story begins.

Both with secrets, Megan had a traumatic experience as a toddler so all her family and friends smother her considering her too fragile for a sexual relationship with any man. She is softly spoken and innocent in Christian's (aren't all the sexy lead men called Christian...Nice) eyes. He evades the topics of his past marriage, living arrangements, and career as a singer from her, telling her he is a writer

Their innocent sweet lovemaking gave me goose bumps, with Christian being a sweet sensuous man willing to wait for Megan to be completely comfortable to go further. To the very end he is considerate and understanding, even disgusted in himself when he feels he was not gentle enough with Megan, even if in her eyes it was exactly what she needed

Due to her past trauma Megan's mother and sister are unable to accept her moving on into the "wickedness" that is called a living sexual independent being, they want her secluded even if she is 26. Their guilt at what happened has Hillary (Megan's sister) warn Christian to stay away and even confide to him what is not hers to tell in her angry state to put him off Megan once and for all. Hillary believes that they are too different and he is a promiscuous man only after one thing from her sister.

Trying to prevent anymore possible hurts, including the possibility that their lovemaking will bring back memories long since forgotten Christian tries to stay away.
