BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Suit Yourself, (Men Of London #3) Susan Mac Nicol


Scarred both physically and emotionally after a motorcycle accident, twenty-five year old ex fashion model and porn star Oliver Brown is about to be stripped bare by flamboyant twink Leslie Scott—and they’ll rebuild love from the bottom up. 


Twenty-five year old Oliver Brown is addicted. Two years ago, he was at the height of his career as “Nicky Starr,” fashion model, porn actor, partier without peer. Then came the accident. Hiding his scars, both emotional and physical, he’s gone into hiding. But fine clothing is some solace. A new suit by Debussy? Better even than a ride on his motorcycle Hulk or all the things he used to give and take on camera. 

Enter Leslie Scott, the flamboyant, dark-haired, heel-and-tiny-short-wearing twink sent to deliver Oliver’s newest fix. A firecracker, Leslie is dapper, generous, in touch with his feminine side but all man, and as gorgeous as any garment ever made. He makes Oliver dream of ending his reclusion, of recapturing a future forever denied him. But for that to happen, Leslie would have to strip him to the bone. Only then will they rebuild life from the bottom up.

Excerpt 1
Leslie has been sent by his boss to deliver a suit to a very special customer…he’s just arrived at the house.
He tut-tutted as he opened his boot and removed the enclosed grey suit, giving it a loving caress as he folded it gently over his left forearm.
“There we go, sweetie. I’m not sure why someone who lives in an unkempt house like this needs a suit like you. You’re far too lovely for a place like this. I hope he takes care of you.”
He picked up his leather business folder and secured it under his other arm. Taking a deep breath, he adjusted his thong, which had once again ridden up between his cheeks. He strode confidently up to the front door, narrowly avoiding what looked like dog crap on a paving stone covered with dead grass as he did. He stopped and frowned down at the offending item.
“You dare get one bit of your smelly self on my Armani loafers and you are toast,” he hissed at what he now saw was simply a clump of dried mud. Delicately avoiding all other ground-strewn landmines, he managed to get to the front door. He shook his head at seeing there was only a broken bell with wires hanging out looking sorry for itself, and he raised a hand—neither of which was truly free—to try and knock on the door as hard as he could. 
He waited. 
The inside of the house was silent. There was no scuffling down what he imagined were worn stairs, no clatter of shoes across laminated floors and no welcoming opening of the door to greet him. He frowned and knocked again, louder this time. His folder slipped from where it was secured under his arm and he quickly tightened his arm to hold it in place.
“Hello? Mr. Brown, are you home? My name is Leslie Scott and I’m here with your new suit,” he announced grandly. 
He wriggled his backside uncomfortably—that damn thong, what the hell was wrong with it—and scowled as he raised a hand to knock again. As he did so, the door opened. A man’s face peered out of him, half hidden. It was dark inside but what Leslie could see of the face looked rather tasty. That was the first surprise of this visit. 
A shock of shaggy, honey-blond hair hung over Mr. Brown’s forehead, and his tanned skin, neat beard and stubble and one wide amber eye all mingled together to make Leslie feel much better about his customer delivery. Mr. Brown also looked a little familiar.
Leslie gave the man what he knew was a dazzling smile, as he’d been praised for it more than once, and indicated the suit hanging across his right arm.

“Mr. Brown? I’m from Debussy Fashion. I’m here to deliver the suit you ordered.”

Independent Reviewer fro Arcaheolibrarian I Dig Good Books, I received this book direct from the author in exchange for my review.

Leslie was Eddie and Taylor's house mate. Buyer for a major fashion house, Leslie is sent to deliver a suit to one Mr Oliver Brown. Leslie knows he has seen him before, but its not until he gets a glimpse of the man's tramp stamp that recognition dawns. Oliver Brown, AKA Nikki Starr, porn star, is in hiding after a horrific accident broke him, inside and out. Leslie is a breathe of much needed fresh air, a star shining so bright that Oliver can't help but fall under his glow. But when a vicious ex undermines Oliver's new found confidence, Oliver retreats and pushes Leslie away.

Leslie just wants someone like Eddie and Taylor have, he is tired of being the fifth wheel. While to intial attraction Leslie has to Oliver is instant, (the man was star in many of Leslie's fantasies, for God's sake!) once they get to know each other and be friends first, its whats on the insdie that Leslie loves. And when Leslie loves, he loves hard and fast. And I loved falling with him. Oliver is damaged, both physically and emotionally and the ex's parting words linger in his brain 2 full years after they were uttered- he is a monster and no one will ever love him. And that is true, but only for as long as Oliver won't let anyone in, won't let anyone love him. Leslie shines his way in, and Oliver is caught, hook line and sinker.

I'm loving this series, I really am! Eddie, Gideon, Taylor, and Draven all play a part here, and for that I am eternally grateful! I love we get to catch up with them as well as delving into the fashion and porn world.

A few more to come, I have been reliably informed, and I look forward to reading them as they arrive.

I enjoyed this more than Love You Senseless but not as much as Sights and Sinners, so splitting the difference and you get

4.75 stars!

One of London’s up-and-coming chefs, Eddie Tripp has just the right recipe to drive tragedy from the mind of Gideon Kent—and leave him senseless with desire. 

From Soho to Norwich, there’s no escaping love. 

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.

Gideon had it all, then a tragedy left him without his soul, his very reason for living. Eddie works in Gideon's restaurant, and from the very beginning, they had fire. They just needed a spark to set it off!

I read Ms Mac Nicol's Alchemy series, and loved those books. This did not disappoint either!

Gideon is suffering, left damaged by the fire that killed his friend. He just needs to talk to someone, but refuses. Eddie sneaks his way in, into his life, his bed and his heart. And I loved them both! Neither man is perfect, but they are perfect for each other. Hot and steamy in places, deep and emotional in others, it pushes all my buttons. I just wished it was longer. Thats why it gets 4.5 stars and not 5, simply because I'm a greedy so and so and wanted more. More Gideon and Eddie, more Leslie, more Taylor (Eddie's housemates) Just plain MORE!!

I do hope that Eddie and Gideon play a huge part in future books, and they arent cut off. I really do, cos I hate when previous characters in a series are passed over, mentioned briefly or even not at all!

Excellent start to the series, Ms Mac Nicol, excellent start.

4.5 stars

The murder of a shared friend leads a high-profile investigator and a psychic into a mystery involving lies, blackmail, BDSM—and into each other’s arms. 


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 of 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.

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books. I recieved my copy of this book, direct from the author, in exchange for my review.

Draven lost his parents to an accident three years ago, it left his almost 16yr old brother in a coma. He met Taylor before, while working a missing child case. He scorned him, and his ability to "see" to connect with people Taylor has an emotional connection to. Taylor likes to keep away, but Draven has a habit of getting under his skin. When Taylor starts dreaming about needing to let go, he doesn't know who wants to be let go. Draven pushes him away, not once, but twice. But Draven needs Taylor, he will do anything to get him back.

I LOVED THIS ONE!! love, love loved it. Taylor is Eddie's house mate from book one, and Draven an investigator, and they cross paths again when dealing with the death of a mutual friend. The attraction is fairly instant, and powerful, so powerful neither can deny it for long, even if they really don't like each other! Draven did come across as a bit of an arse in the beginning, but after seeing Taylor stuck down with one of his visions, he takes it all back. Taylor can really see.

I loved that Taylor did not really figure out who was trying to get through to him, until they met, and that said someone was able to get through enough to make Taylor understand. It took some time for Draven to fully come to terms with his feeling for Draven, and I liked that!

I LOVED that Eddie, Gideon and Leslie take part, if only to make sure that Draven doesn't hurt Taylor, again. Its Leslie's stroy next, and I have that to read too. Looking forward to catching up with these men soon!

Thank you, Ms Mac Nicol for my copy.

Susan Mac Nicol is a self confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, self confessed geek and nerd and in love with her Smartphone. This little treasure is called ‘the boyfriend’ by her long suffering husband, who says if it vibrated, there’d be no need for him. Susan hasn’t had the heart to tell him there’s an app for that…

She is never happier than when sitting in the confines of her living room/study/on a cold station platform scribbling down words and making two men fall in love. She is a romantic at heart and believes that everything happens (for the most part) for a reason.  She likes to think of herself as a ‘half full’ kinda gal, although sometimes that philosophy is sorely tested.

Lover of walks in the forest, theatre productions, dabbling her toes in the cold North Sea and the vibrant city of London where you can experience all four seasons in a day , she is a hater of pantomime (so please don’t tar and feather her), duplicitous people, bigotry and self righteous idiots. 

In an ideal world, Susan Mac Nicol would be Queen of England and banish all the bad people to the Never Never Lands of Wherever -Who Cares. As that’s never going to happen, she contents herself with writing her HEA stories and pretending, that just for a little while, good things happen to good
