THE MEN OF LONDON From Charing Cross to Waterloo, there’s no escaping love.
28-year-old Draven Samuels has a tragic past, but as an investigator with a high-profile London company he now gets what he wants. Tough, sarcastic, and sceptical, he has no patience for lies and even less for people who waste his time. Even if they’re as beautiful as the wild and dark-haired Taylor Abelard. Especially when they’re talking over the body of a murder victim.
Psychic Taylor Abelard is used to people calling him a freak. He can see past events and feel the ghostly vibrations of people close to him who’ve passed on. It’s why he doesn’t get too close to the living. But this time, against his better judgment, despite Draven’s mocking rejoinders, Taylor will get closer than ever before. The mystery surrounding a dead friend will lead the two men down a dark and seedy trail of blackmail and lies. Add in the heartbreak of a family tragedy, and events lead them straight into each other’s arms. By the end of this night, all their demons will have risen—and been banished with the dawn.

The man Taylor was blowing definitely didn’t know how the hell to keep quiet. Taylor’s lips were wrapped around his dick, while above him a man stood, panting and moaning, turning the air blue with his curses. Taylor stopped what he was doing, causing the blowjob recipient to groan in dismay, and glared at the sweaty face above him.
“For Christ’s sake, Georgie, can you stop it with the fucking porn noises?” He glanced around him nervously. “This is where I work, damn it, and if anyone hears you they’ll come outside to see what all the fuss is about.”
Georgie’s wide eyes cast a quick glance around the deserted alleyway behind ‘Music Mayhem’ where Taylor was employed, then looked down at Taylor kneeling between his legs.
“Sorry, mate, it’s just that you’re so damn good at this and it’s been a while.”
I read book one in the Men Of London series ‘Love You Senseless’ and loved it, so when the chance to read the sequel came up I jumped on it. I really enjoyed getting to know Taylor and Leslie in the first book, so I was excited to get Taylor’s story.
While reading the first book I fell hard for Taylor, actually I fell for all three boys, so I couldn’t wait to see where Taylor’s story would go. I can’t imagine what he goes through when he has his visions. My heart hurt for him and I wanted to take away the pain.
Draven on the other hand, well I kinda hated him a little and wanted to smack him. MANY times. Oh, he was your typical a-hole, love ‘um and leave ‘um playboy. But when you get his back story I can promise you that your heart will break. I was absolutely devastated when I learned all that he has gone through.
Now Draven and Taylor as a couple, well I REALLY enjoyed watching them together. They were like oil and water. Both snarky and hard-headed. It was such a push/pull feeling with them, even when they did finally get together. Draven is your typical commitment-phobic, runs-at-the-thought of any-type-of-relationship guy. And every time he ran, I wanted to scream in frustration. But he has his reasons and while HE thinks they are valid, you might struggle with his choices, yet understand why. Even so, Taylor isn’t the pushover that you might think, just because he’s always forgiving Draven. He proves his strength over and over again.
I really enjoyed this book, especially when we get to revisit Leslie, Eddie & Gideon as well. There is not a huge amount of angst, which I appreciated. The sexy times are hot, also appreciated. I highly recommend this book. It can be read as a standalone, but the first in this series was just as good as this one so I would say read both. I can’t wait for Leslie’s story now.

Susan Mac Nicol is a self confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, self confessed geek and nerd and in love with her Smartphone. This little treasure is called ‘the boyfriend’ by her long suffering husband, who says if it vibrated, there’d be no need for him. Susan hasn’t had the heart to tell him there’s an app for that…
She is never happier than when sitting in the confines of her living room/study/on a cold station platform scribbling down words and making two men fall in love. She is a romantic at heart and believes that everything happens (for the most part) for a reason. She likes to think of herself as a ‘half full’ kinda gal, although sometimes that philosophy is sorely tested.
Lover of walks in the forest, theatre productions, dabbling her toes in the cold North Sea and the vibrant city of London where you can experience all four seasons in a day , she is a hater of pantomime (so please don’t tar and feather her), duplicitous people, bigotry and self righteous idiots.
In an ideal world, Susan Mac Nicol would be Queen of England and banish all the bad people to the Never Never Lands of Wherever -Who Cares. As that’s never going to happen, she contents herself with writing her HEA stories and pretending, that just for a little while, good things happen to good people.
