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.
This was fantastic! Enemies to lovers followed by a very emotional story that shouldn’t be read in public for the sake of your own sanity.
We met Taylor Abelard in book one as one of the three crazy house mates in Eddie’s story. Works hard, plays hard and lives with the curse of his physic abilities that sometimes overload his system and cause him to pass out. He has been having particularly bad visions recently and Leslie, who we will talk about later, has been a huge support. When he reads about the death of one of his ‘fuck buddies’, he attends the funeral and comes face to face with an old adversary who is definitely a non believer in his abilities.
Draven Samuels is an ass. Ignorant and crude he doesn’t care who he upsets or hurts and doesn’t often feel remorse. When he bumps into Taylor at a friend’s funeral he recognises the man from a previous case and has no doubt the man is a fraud. Draven is a character that grows on you as the story commences and you learn about his past but initially he is plain old horrid!
I think even the two men themselves are surprised they can become friends but that’s what happens and it isn’t too long before they end up in bed with each other. Both these men have colourful backgrounds where sex is concerned, as in anyone will do, but when they end up in bed together neither man wants to be anywhere else. This is both comforting and terrifying.
Theirs is not an easy path to love by any means. Draven may have suddenly come to believe in Taylor’s odd abilities but the man is volatile, grumpy and at a point in his life where he has to make some very difficult decisions. He is also secretive and keeping a part of life away from Taylor although that part is trying very hard to reach out to Taylor independently.
This was an emotional read that will see you sobbing big ugly tears towards the end. It was beautifully written and heart breaking to read. Draven and Taylor are certainly my favourite couple of the series so far…..BUT….
Leslie! I cannot wait for Leslie’s book. He is a hoot with his high heels, drama and smurf slippers. God help the man who has to tame him!
