Susan Mac Nichols is an auto buy author for me and I love the Men of London series. Thi one has a lot of Ryan and Mango from book 8 plus a few cameos from the other books, but the book stands alone nicely.
Survival Game is Kyle and Eric. Kyle's ex was abusive and left him fearful and broken. he keeps his identity hidden hoping that he won't come after him. he is careful of dating since he doesn't want to get hurt again, both physically and emotionally.
Eric has a secret from his past as well. He lost the love of his life but something about Kyle touches him the more he talks to him and goes out with him, the more he wants to be with him.
I love this series and each book I say I love the main characters more. I have to admit the same here. Both Eric and Kyle touched my heart. I love character driven stories and this one is amazing. Kyle, even though he has issues, is cocky, to the point goes for what he wants.
Eric is a sexy paramedic and more laid back than Kyle so the two fit perfectly. Eric's job adds some action and tension to the story and Kyles card tricks add some fun, His best friend that visits adds a touch of humor and lightness.
If you are looking for a fun, fresh story, like sexy paramedics, hot croupiers, and club managers, drag queens, and some hot man-sex you will love this book
I highly recommend it.
Kyle had it rough, I mean any victim of domestic violence suffers, but I believe men suffer psychologically even more so due to the stigma attached. But seriously, his ex was a real piece of work. And Eric just about broke my heart clean in half. I cannot imagine the horror he went through with the loss of his partner. Truthfully, that was a heart-breaker. Combined, our protagonists are trying to move on and be a real couple. But first they need to get to talking and discussing their pasts. Not easy at all considering their jobs and the fact that they rarely get any face time.
This book has some hard subject matter, but Susan Mac Nicol handled it with compassion and dignity. We all love that elusive love story where everything is perfect and the birds are always singing, but that is not real life. Realism is what I love in my stories, and we get that in spades with the Men of London series. Being American, I used to struggle a bit with British slang, but I am getting better. There is quite a bit in this book, and I remember thinking that Susan let it all out on purpose, that she was not trying to fit a mold but be true to herself. Good for her. And, in a way, our guys did the same thing. They knew they had to be real to move forward and move forward they did, brilliantly. Highly recommended.
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
Book 9 in the series, but they can all be read as stand alones. I've somehow managed to miss reading book 8, Hard Climate. It overlaps a little with this one, so I've had spoilers for that book, but I don't care. I LOVE LOVE this series!
Kyle left Vegas and returned to London after he managed to get away from his nasty piece of work of an ex. He's a little wary now, but paramedic Eric makes him feel himself again. But both Kyle and Eric have skeletons in their closets, and its a matter of whether they can both overcome them.
I loved this one! Well, I loved most of them but the damaged characters Ms Mac Nicol writes about are the ones who get me the most.
Both guys are dealing with PTSD, and they know it. They know at some point they are going to have to open their hearts to someone new, but both are wary of being hurt again. Understandably, when you read WHY each man is so wary. But their feelings creep up on them and I do love it when emotionally damaged characters finally let some one in. Makes me cheer!
Ms Mac Nicol's levels of research never cease to amaze me. Research into Eric's work life. Into Kyle's former job, and what happened to him in Vegas. How Kyle was reacting to Eric now. Such high levels of research do not go unnoticed, and I noticed.
The screens between the guys are hot and steamy, but also sweet at times, to enable Kyle to get used to Eric. You feel for them, you really do, and in a way only Ms Mac Nicol can deliver that feeling.
Certainly sitting way up with Feat of Clay as my stand out favourites of the series.
Thank you, for my copy!

**same worded review will appear elsewhere**
These men have an instant attraction, hitting it off right off the bat. Very flirtatious and sexually-charged air about them.
"Strong on the outside, vulnerable on the inside. Mouthy and too damn sexy for his own good."
Unbeknownst to them, they're the same in several ways.
They equally have hidden demons. Traumatic pasts they fight daily to survive.
Heavy material without being too "heavy," if that makes sense. Tragic and sad, very much so, but, of course, Susan's usual witty and cheeky banter is front and center, helping to ease the heaviness.
I will say, Eric's job is so stressful and sad. I felt for him so much! So much heartache on the daily. It's a wonder he found the time to smile! My heart went out to him.
"We both suffered, just in different way."
This was definitely a quick and pleasant read. I love the inclusion of past characters, which is always nice.
A new character emerges as well...looking forward to hearing more about him!
