Blurb: Imprisoned and tortured, undercover cop Tate Williams will find redemption in the arms of his boyhood friend, now lover, former SAS soldier Clay Mortimer.
TORN. TORTURED. LOVED.
Though they went their separate ways, Tate Williams and Clay Mortimer have been crazy about each other since their school days. Clay went into the SAS. Tate became a cop. Neither mentioned their attraction to the other. Both sought out danger. Both found it.
Imprisoned and shot in an undercover assignment gone wrong, Tate somehow survived…and found his way back into Clay’s arms. His old friend is now the owner of an elite investigation agency and everything any man could want: patient, handsome, commanding. And Clay knows what it takes to survive. But Tate can’t bring himself to share all his secrets, nightmares that force him to rebel against everything. He finds solace from his past as a graffiti artist, a childhood passion, but his demons drive away all who might care for him. Only when he faces that past—and learns that everyone has tasted despair—can the two men truly be brothers-in-arms…and more.
Review: Let me start by saying I love Susan Mac Nicol, and I have read and recommended all the books in the Men of London series. These books are so well written, and I didn’t think she could do better than Suit Yourself, book three, but yeah, she proved me wrong and I am so glad she did.
Tate is broken, suffering from severe PTSD from an undercover op gone bad, and because Tate is broken, part of Clay is broken also. How do two alpha males overcome a disease that is all in Tate’s head? Feat of Clay takes you on their rocky journey to their HEA. I couldn’t put this book down because I couldn’t leave Tate there – in that place – trying so hard to be strong for Clay while Clay is trying so hard to be strong for Tate. You will love these men, together as a couple, and individually, as they each fight their demons and come out stronger and more in love than they thought possible.
It is truly a “feat” for Clay to be the man Tate needs and for Tate to trust that love. There are cameos from the other Men of London, and plenty of laughter to balance the scales. We also get to meet some well written, interesting and endearing secondary characters who enhance the storyline. I highly recommend all the Men of London books and Feat of Clay, especially!
