From Charing Cross to Waterloo, there’s no escaping love.
I loved Gideon and Eddie’s story, in Book 1 of The Men of London story, so I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into the second book in this series, Sight and Sinners.
This is Taylor and Draven’s story. Taylor is a psychic, specifically one who sees people who have already passed, which leaves him with nightmares, and sometimes in a catatonic state. Meanwhile, Draven is a bit of a man-ho, but very quickly turns his ways, once he meets up with Taylor again. To say their first meeting was inaspicious would be understating it. However, once Draven truly sees the power in Taylor’s gift, he cannot deny it, even finding it frightening in its effects on Taylor.
As these two work together to solve a mystery around a friend’s death, they heat up the bedroom, and begin to fall in love. The challenges ahead for them both brought a bit of an ugly cry, I must say. Taylor having to give devastating news to the man he loves, then finding himself turned away for it, was tough to read. What should have brought them together tore them apart, until Draven realized how wrong he truly was.
The situation they dealt with would be challenging for anyone to deal with, causing many to turn away from their loved ones. With Taylor’s powers added to the mix, it could bring some level of comfort, for sure, but also a lot of anguish. Watching these men walk through these hours together gives you hope that love really can help to heal hurt.
I couldn’t help but cry for about the last 25% of this book (which Ms. Mac Nicol gleefully enjoyed when I told her), but the love was just stunning between these men, and I couldn’t help but be gleeful myself at reading their story. And having some glimpses at Taylor’s best buddies, Eddie and Leslie was great! I am excited to see what kind of man can take on such a beautiful man as Leslie. That will be a lot of fun, for sure!
As always, Susan Mac Nicol reads are amazing, and enjoyable, and I always look forward to reading them again! And one of the things I have enjoyed about this series so far has been that the two stories are vastly different, despite being based around Galileo’s, the restaurant. Very different love stories, for very different men, but in the end love will win! 🙂
Sight and Sinners (Men of London Book 2) gets 4.5 pieces of eye candy, and looking forward to the finish to this trilogy.
THE MEN OF LONDON
From Soho to Norwich, there’s no escaping love.
A TASTE OF FOREVER
An award-winning chef with his own restaurant and an inexhaustible passion, Gideon Kent once had everything. Then came tragedy. It stole more than Gideon’s home. He hasn’t cooked since.
Until Eddie Tripp. Fun-loving and vivacious, the Norfolk redhead’s a real up-and-comer in Gideon’s kitchen—and other places. Slim where Gideon’s broad, easy-going where Gideon is growly, he and Gideon seem polar opposites, and yet Eddie conjures flavors that would tempt anyone with a taste for perfection. The sauce of love is already simmering, and this pair is about to dine on the most delicious dish they’ve ever prepared. Because Eddie’s been Gideon’s missing ingredient all along.
