One thing I like about Susan's books, is that supporting characters that show up are ones from other books in the series, and if you've read earlier novels, it can be like reminiscing with old friends when they do show up. Interestingly enough, Kyle shows up in an earlier novel, but only in a supporting role. Personally, I'm glad Susan finally gave him a storyline. The book is well written, well paced, with just the right amount of spice to make it interesting if not down right erotic. If M/M books are your forte, this book and the entire 'Men of London' series itself is worth a look. I'll have to admit, 'Sight Unseen,' another of Susan's works, which takes place in California, is still my favorite (If you haven't read it, you should), 'Survival Game' ranks high on the list of 'must read' M/M romances.
You get to feel every emotion by each page you turn, and that's exactly what I like about all Susan Mac Nicol's stories!
Eric and Kyle's story captivated me from the start, each having a hard past they still have problems dealing with. When they find one another, they have to figure out how to really get past their past, because their future together looks so right.
Although this book is a part of a series, it stands alone
Well, this is the story of Eric and Kyle, whose romance didn't really start off that well. There was a bit of miscommunication and that sort of thing, but thing is, this is a story that reads so real. There is no flimsy, rose-colored lens type of romance going on. This is not one of those yada yada hohum stories that one can dismiss as an M&B type of thing if you know what I'm talking about. This is a romance that only a Mac Nicol can deliver and she never fails on that point. Once you start reading, that's it, you're lost in the world of Kyle and Eric and the romance they brew.
Now, this is a story that develops, so although it doesn't crawl, one could categorize it as a slow burning process. But fear not! It does not crawl like a bug, think more like an ant that eats its way up your body and before you know it, wow! the history stings for both men, and you cry a little, die a little, and yet, despite the tears, you smile big because, well, they deserve their happiness so much it hurts.
Although a long time coming, this installment to the series is one that was worth the waiting. The other men come back in cameo appearances, and well, you smile if you know them. It's nice seeing the others come back and say their peace about Kyle and Eric's romance. There is also a backend story about Mango and Ryan. For those who follow this series, you'll realize that this and book #8 sort of intersect which makes the waiting even more worthwhile.
Men of London the series is one that I can never hope to escape from. The author keeps saying this is the end, but nope, there are too many men in London whose tale need to be told and Mac Nicol delivers brilliantly each time.
Can't wait for the next one!
