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.
There were two things I really liked in this book. First, the whole psychic thing. Now, I’m not really into paranormal stuff, and I don’t really care for shifters/werewolves/vampires e.t.c unless it is something recommended from a friend, but this book opened my eyes to one fact: I REALLY LIKE PSYCHICS!I guess this is my kind of paranormal and thank you Susan Mac Nicol for this.
The other thing is Jude’s “story. Jude is Draven’s little brother. He was in the car accident that killed Draven’s parents a few years ago and has been in a coma since. There is no hope for him to wake up but Draven refused to make the decision of switching the machines off.
Sadly, what I didn’t really care about was the romance. It started great, like an enemies-to-lovers story. The lovers part came pretty fast, though, and was a little sudden. The sex scenes, although hot, seemed a bit off probably because, in my opinion, they took place at inappropriate times. For example, Taylor decides he wants to have sex first and wait till the next morning to talk about an important vision he had about a suicide case. There were some misunderstandings, more like hissy fits from both parts that most times were resolve with sex. Also, there is a time gap, from the first time they have sex (not full on) until a few weeks later. This is off page (including their first time together) and I needed this time to feel them forming a bond.
There is also a mystery of shorts, the suicide case mentioned above (with the suicide victim being Draven’s friend and Taylor’s fuck buddy) , but it resolves relatively easily and it is a bit predictable.
Overall it was a nice, easy read. Not really a fan of the romance here but the psycic part and the way miss Mac Nicol described it, saved the day for me.
