Revelations by Bellamy Westbay is an intriguing romance novel with some fantasy, paranormal, and supernatural elements. The story begins with our heroine, Gwen, dreaming that she is on a beach. The only reason she knows it is a dream is because, although the details of the landscape are so vividly real, only four of the five senses are affected. There is no sound. Every single night for the last four years, the same faceless man had come to her here; in her dreams. In reality, Gwen has a constant circle of close friends; spoiled queen bee Hannah, grounded Beverly, and Gwen's male companion, secretive Ky. Gwen's parents are the campaign managers for Hannah's father. Then at a fundraiser/gala the next night, enter Alexander Prescott, son of Prescott Tech's CEO Eli Prescott/ People's "Sexiest Man Alive." Alex has his eyes on Gwen until Hannah comes into view. She is the spitting image of the love of his life. When Hannah starts flirting with Eli, Alex signals his mother to intervene. Then, of course, Hannah's attention turns toward Alex, especially since she saw him dancing with Gwen. Events really begin to heat up when Alex enrolls at the same college, and takes a couple of the same classes as our rivals. When they all audition for a steamy type, 'push it to the limits' play, it doesn't sit well with Hannah when Gwen is cast as Alex's leading lady.
Bellamy Westbay tells this well written story through the eyes of the two main characters of interest, Gwen, and Alex, except for one small chapter, "Unknown," in which a mysterious man knows about Alex's past, which I thought was really clever on the author's part. The author does an outstanding job of describing the emotions and thoughts of the main characters of the story, although they do remind me of another famous love triangle when they returned to Riverdale as adults. Bellamy Westbay is very adept at what literary agents refer to as being able to, "spin some yarn." Book 1 of the Infinity Series, Revelations is a masterfully written story with everything you could ask for in a page turning, romance adventure. I am looking forward to the next installment with bated breath!
