Blurb: 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.
Review: Draven and Taylor started off on really bad footing, in more ways than one, but once these two got it right, it was magical. Draven is a skeptical and tough as nails investigator…and he has no time for Taylor, a beautiful man who pushes every one of his erotic buttons, but no, Taylor had to be a phony medium who preys on people at their weakest moments and claims to see dead people. Draven couldn’t have been more wrong, and from the beginning dug himself into a huge hole. These two have a long road to travel, with lots of issues affecting them both, and coming from many angles. Not easy, but so worth it.
This story is in-depth and solid. It encompasses a wide range of emotions and takes the reader on a trip inside the lives of these two amazing men, and also the guys from book one, as well. I especially loved Leslie; Eddie and Taylor’s room mate from the first book, and was so hoping that they were each other’s love interest… at first, but I easily fell for Draven and accepted that Leslie and Taylor could only be friends. I still need a Leslie story though…he is simply awesome.
Many will not be happy with Draven, at first, he had to grow on me too, but you have to understand his past and pain before you can move forward and root for him. But, when you do, you fall hard for him, too. It was his side story that made me cry, and I cried so hard at the end…you will know why when you get to that part, trust me. Ripped me to threads…and I knew it was coming, but it didn’t stop me from trailing ugly tears from my puffy eyes and down my reddened cheeks.
So folks, we have another winner from this incredibly talented author, and I eagerly await book three, and hopefully, it will be all Leslie!
