‘Feat of Clay’ by Susan Mac Nicol #LGBT #Review Tour #Review

Imprisoned and tortured, undercover cop Tate Williams will find redemption in the arms of his boyhood friend, now lover, former SAS soldier Clay Mortimer. 

Though they went their separate ways, Tate Williams and Clay Mortimer have been crazy about each other since their school days. Clay went into the SAS. Tate became a cop. Neither mentioned their attraction to the other. Both sought out danger. Both found it. 

Imprisoned and shot in an undercover assignment gone wrong, Tate somehow survived…and found his way back into Clay’s arms. His old friend is now the owner of an elite investigation agency and everything any man could want: patient, handsome,
commanding. And Clay knows what it takes to survive. But Tate can’t bring himself to share all his secrets, nightmares that force him to rebel against everything. He finds solace from his past as a graffiti artist, a childhood passion, but his demons drive away all who might care for him. Only when he faces that past—and learns that everyone has tasted despair—can the two men truly be brothers-in-arms…and more.
Feat of Clay Excerpt 2 *NSFW*
He grinned as his pants were unzipped and Tate’s tongue came out to wet his very kissable lips. At that sight, Clay’s cock instantly plumped up. The sly caress of Tate’s thumb across the head of his dick made it even perkier. Clay settled comfortably back against the couch, stretching his arms across the back, hitching a breath as Tate’s mouth swallowed him down. The image of Tate’s mouth on him, dark head bobbing up and down with his little moans of pleasure teasing his cock, never failed to arouse Clay. Tate was exceptionally good at sucking cock and enjoyed it immensely. His hot, wet tongue flicking against Clay’s tip, those long, steady licks against his shaft as Tate glanced up at Clay, holding him mesmerised. The fact this was his Tate was a turn-on itself.
“Your mouth is too good at this,” Clay hissed, eyes closing in bliss as Tate took him deep, throat massaging his sensitive dick. “I know I say that every time.” His voice caught as Tate’s tongue did something to him that sent all the nerve endings in his body aflame. “Christ that felt good. Do it again.”
Tate’s gave a wicked chuckle as his dirty mouth drove Clay crazy. When he pulled off, Clay moaned pitifully.







I have read all three books in the Men of London series so when we had the chance to review for book four will I jumped at the chance.  I absolutely  loved Eddie, Taylor and Leslie’s books and since they were roommates I was not sure who was going to be the focus in this book.  So when I read the blurb I was thrilled to see that we would be getting Clay, Dravens boss who was mentioned in book two.
Now let me start off by saying that this book, while part of a series can be read as a stand alone, just like books 1-3 can be read as stand alone.  BUT I highly recommend reading all of them because they are all wonderful, fun reads.  Also characters from the first 3 books do make appearances in this one.
What I liked about this one that we don’t see in the others is Clay and Tate are already an established couple, so there is no push and pull of getting to know the other person.  Clay and Tate have been friends for many years, and only just recently became a couple.  It took almost loosing Tate for Clay to finally confess how he feels about Tate.
I loved these two together, both very much alpha males, yet when they are together you can see how much they care for one another.  But as sweet and gentle as they can be, when they go all alpha well its best to move the breakables.  HOT.  I also enjoyed how the author brings back the MCs from book 1-3, even if just for a brief time.  Along with past characters we are introduced to a new one that I really hope we will get his story.  The angst in this one is low, I would call it more heartbreaking, but how it all plays out is beautiful.
Ms. Mac Nicol knows how to write a book that draws you in, hold your attention and leaves you wanting more when it is over.  This is a brilliant series, one that I know I will go back and re-read many times.  I highly recommend not just this one but all of them.  Check out my reviews for book 1 & 2 below.


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.
