BARING THE BEAST
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.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
OMG Susan Mac Nicol another book in the series and another 5 star result!
Leslie story is... well is full of Leslie LOL, is charming, sweet, funny, camp, romantic, sexy, its everything I was expecting it to be and more.
It was a beautiful book, after Sight and Sinners we were all left expectantly waiting to hear Leslie's. We have fallen in love with him since the fist book in the Men Of London Series. We knew that inspire of being such a cute and quirky character he also had a very sensitive side to himself and that whomever fall for him was in for a multicolour ride!.
The story begins when Leslie is asked to deliver a suit to a prominent client from the company he works for, Debussy. What we don't expect is him being greeted by ex-porn star and total sex God Nicky Starr, however he goes by his real name now and is carrying a hell of a lot of bagage. What happens once Leslie sets foot inside Oliver's house sets in motion of a multitude of funny yet heartfelt encounters. You see Nicky (AKA Oliver Brown), has been terribly hurt, in more ways than one, and the psychological and physical scars he is carrying have been a hinder for him to properly form ties with anyone. However he wasn't expecting Leslie Scott to knock at his door, wearing an uncomfortable thong and a killer smile. His life will never be the same. We also are joined by previous characters Eddie, Gideon, Travis and Draven from the last books, well Leslie needed his friends too!!
I totally adored this book. It had so much charm, it had so many LOL moments but also had romance and very very steamy encounters.
Well done Susan Mac Nicol for another enjoyable read.
5 massive CAMP stars.

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.
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 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.
