Men Of London Series and it's the sexy Maxwell' s story who we met in Suit yourself as Oliver's friend with benefits.
Maxwell Lewis has spent years living a life of occasional hook ups and carte Blanche status in The Mile High Club. Maxwell's life was one of tragedy which he's turned around and has been working as a cabin crewman for Target Airlines. He enjoys traveling the world but as of late he's beginning to realize something is missing, with seeing his friends all happily paired off with lovers Maxwell yearns for that connection and to be able to come home to that someone special instead of his empty flat. While on one of his flights Maxwell spots a geeky beautiful passenger named Gibson Henry and when confronted with each other his world as he's known it takes a sudden turn and I will say this.. watching this unfold had me glued to my seat and falling in love.
Gibson Henry is this geeky talented game developer who with his best friend has started up their own gaming company and he's devoted to making his company number one and finds pleasure in occasional hookups with a "No Repeats" rule so after a brief mile high encounter with the sexy cabin crew member Maxwell things begin to change when a brief encounter at a London club brings these two together and sparks fly and life as these two knew will never be the same.
I absolutely love this whole series it's so hard to pick a favorite character. I have fallen in love with each one for different reasons but I will admit this story touched my heart and I've claimed Maxwell as mine. That's right I'm greedy and will not share him, his character grabbed me by the heart and Susan in true magnificent form has once again written another brilliant masterpiece. This story flowed perfectly, to see how one can overcome tragedy and loss and meet that certain someone that can bring you back and make you feel and fall in love again.
The feelings in this story were so emotional I cried with both Maxwell and Gibson but then I was laughing at the banter between these two especially when we were reading their POV on subjects it was so well done , and let's not forget the steamy sex scenes that had me needing a fan in January to cool off.
I loved the way Susan wrote the timeframe with each chapter, we saw so much happen but never rushed nor did the theme drag I can't express enough how well written this is and the growth and companionship between these two was so endearing it shows us that from heartbreak true love can be found, yes it sometimes takes sadness and pain to get there but the journey is so well worth it.
This book can be read as a standalone but I do recommend reading them in order because you get glimpses of past characters from the other books and it will make more sense as to who is who. So if you haven't read this book yet go "one click" this now you will not be disappointed with yet another gem from this amazing author.
Thank you Susan for yet another beautiful story I am already looking forward for your next story.
Maxwell Lewis, 27, is a flight attendant for a Target airlines. Life hasn't been easy for him but he's finally getting the happiness he deserves in a job he loves. The opportunity for quick, meaningless hookups has been part of his job's appeal, but lately he's been feeling more and more lonely. Finding a meaningful relationship is not easy with the hours he keeps and the manner in which he meets new partners.
At the relatively young age of 24, Gibson Henry is a gaming whiz kid. He has neither the time nor the inclination for anything beyond a one night stand. Perfecting his new LGBT game Camp Queen in time for the British Gaymz Choice Award is all he has time for, and all he thinks about.
When Gibson meets Maxwell it's lust at first sight. The sizzling hot flight attendant is just the person to fulfil his mile high fantasies. Maxwell sees far more in the gorgeous blonde gamer, but it's clear Gibson is not interested in anything more than a one night stand.
Can Max break down the walls Gibson has built to protect himself and fulfill his dreams? Will Gibson even take the time for a second date, let alone a relationship? Max has his work cut out for him with this ambitious, driven young man, but it'll be worth the effort if he can have any chance of a HEA.
I absolutely loved this book. I adored the MC's, and Gibson's straight best friend, Jack, was a delight, adding depth and humour to the journey these two men took. Susan made me cry, laugh and kept me riveted until Flying Solo's highly satisfying conclusion. I highly recommend this heartwarming, beautiful story.
I really didn't like Gibson much for a while. His character did change rather a lot over time. There didn't seem to be any particular reason for him to be so commitment-phobic, so that made it worse, to me. It was also a bit hard to believe he went from acting rather cruel to being so sweet.
Max's character was far more believable. The fact that Susan used the realistic scenario of being homeless early in his life, made it interesting. His breakdown during the story though, didn't really match his character as he'd been written. There were reasons given, but since they were told, rather than shown, it kind of took me out of the story.
I liked the secondary characters. I liked Jack, who took Gibson's trash talk in stride so well. His girlfriend Beth was sweet and supportive of Gibson as well. I'm guessing Gibson's friend Ev (Chewy) will be a future character.
I have to say, too often lately, I see authors making characters either really tall, like 6 foot 5 inches or rather short, like Gibson at 5 foot 4 inches. At least Susan didn't make Max too tall. But can't they just be average more often? Plus short men always make me think of my short brother (Ick!) and Napoleon complex!
