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.
Okay, first... I love book series. I totally adore that as a reader I get to see charries from other books show up, so when I knew this book was in a series, I was like..."YES!" another series for me to follow.
What made me read the story, what kept me reading the story and what made me love this story... had nothing to do with it being in a series. If you were to read this book as a stand alone, it would make it no less wonderful, at least in my own opinion. Now... down to the nitty gritty!
There was a lot to 'Sight and Sinners' that appealed to me. Taylor's abilities, though a blessing and a curse, plays heavily in not only the plot, but some of the emotional play that builds throughout the story. I am not just talking about Draven coming to terms to what his lover is capable of, or that he believes in his ability, but rather what it leads to. (No spoilers, I promise!) Though it is a wonderful moment, it is heart breaking as well and part of the book that will either make you have to put down your e-reader for a moment to absorb it all, or make you just want to keep reading... either way, it is amazing.
The slow build up of trust, friendship and ultimately love is something that kept me reading, but the way that Draven holds back a part of himself... made the story more "real" to me. Getting "involved" in a story is important when I read, and I think Susan Mac Nicol did a wonderful job at pulling me in to her world.
Even if you have not read the rest of "The Men of London" series, I highly suggest that you read this release. You will not be disappointed at all in 'Sight and Sinners' from the first page, to the last.
