Overview

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.

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.

Ms. Mac Nicols blew my socks off with this book. I didn't think it was possible to make a sort of insta love story work so well... Well, I didn't feel that it was so insta love since they'd been lusting after each other for a bit, but the characters felt that it was moving quickly between them so who am I to argue?  Normally I don't particularly care for secondary characters but the way they were written into the story was excellent because they supported the relationship that was building between the main two characters.  Both men had their own issues to deal with in and outside of the relationship, but they supported and helped each other through them and dealt with them in such a great way it really felt like the characters were real and I cheered for them to not only make it through everything, but come out as the victors (i.e. the loss of senses).  I can't wait to sink my teeth into the next book in this series as I'm sure it will be just as captivating and intriguing as this one was.  I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.

Love You Senseless is the first book in Susan Mac Nicol's Men of London series which explores contemporary gay relationships in the cosmopolitan capital. If Love You Senseless is anything to go by then readers will be treated to a feast of hot passion and raunchy (fictional!) sex! As with any Susan Mac Nicol novel, Love You Senseless is character driven, particularly by the two gorgeous protagonists, Eddie and Gideon. After being involved in a tragic accident, Gideon's psychological response was to shut down his senses of taste and smell. This meant that he had to step down from his position as chef and he now owns a busy fine dining restaurant. Galileo's has become Gideon's main focus, enabling him to block out the nightmares and memories of the fire. Eddie is the sous-chef at Galileo's and as different from Gideon in looks, as well as personality. Eddie's fiery red hair is indicative of both the love he has for cooking and his sexual passion. Despite the fact that they are employer and employee the atmosphere between Eddie and Gideon is electric. Though their relationship is inevitable, each moment they spend together is enough to have the reader panting, regardless of their gender or sexuality! Love You Senseless does not contain as much angst as several of Susan Mac Nicol's previous books, but each character has their own issues to deal with and their responses elicit similar emotions from us. Susan Mac Nicol's secondary characters contribute so much to the story as well. In particular Carmen, whose sassiness I love; Luke, Eddie's cousin, whose own story is heart-breaking; Leslie who is fabulous (DARLING!) and Taylor. I admit that I was initially unconvinced by Taylor's 'gift' but as the plot develops his strangeness becomes charming and without him there would have been more misery. Love You Senseless rocked my world and I definitely cannot wait for more in the Men of London series! If you have been hiding under the bed for years and haven't picked up a book by the very awesome Susan Mac Nicol yet, then now is the time to start! I received this as a complimentary review copy, but this has had no influence on my opinion.

Gideon Kent was an award winning chef until he lost his sense of smell and taste in a tragic accident. It also left him a grouchy, bitter man. Even though he could no longer cook he found some great up and coming talent to run his kitchen and keep his restaurant on the top of the lists. Eddie is the opposite of Gideon. He is charming, and sweet. He loves his job at the restaurant and has a lot of feelings for his boss. Eddie lives with two very eccentric friends, Leslie and Taylor. One of the things I love so much about Susan Mac Nichols stories is her amazing characters and this book is full of them. From the chefs at the restaurant, Gideon’s wait staff and managers, I loved Carmen, to Eddie and I his friends. I couldn’t decide who I loved the most. A little birdie told me I will be seeing more of both Taylor and Leslie and a bit more of Gideon and Eddie in the foreseeable future, so I am a very happy kitty. Another thing I love about Susan’s stories is the angst and tragic past of at least one of the characters. In this one It’s Gideon with a very tragic story. I love how the story evolves and we watch Gideon grow from grumpy and hateful to a pretty likeable guy. There is also lots of suspense, some twists and turns that had me chewing my nails and I couldn’t put this book down once I picked it up. I am so glad that this book is a series and cant wait for book two. If you like interesting characters, sexy chefs, a hint of a supernatural twist, broken men, some angst, nice and hot man-sex and a happy for now ending I highly recommend this book!

I was given this book for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads. Eddie and Gideon are fantastic together! They compliment each other's personality, demeanor and lifestyle. This story has many unique qualities - but I like that the author wrote the two main characters to compliment each other so well. Despite a traumatic event in Gideon's past, he continues on his original path, with a slight detour. When Eddie joins his restaurant family, Gideon finds it difficult to be both infatuated and encouraging his new head chef. Their relationship is slightly volatile to start, but after learning what makes each other tick, each other's habits and gaining each other's trust, their relationship blossoms in to one of mutual admiration and love. Eddie is able to help Gideon with his past trauma as well as his cousin, Luke, with his new change in life. The supporting characters were slightly odd for me. While I really enjoyed Leslie's personality, Taylor was a little bit of a stretch. You never really learned much about Taylor - his gift is really all that is talked about. He seems like an afterthought, and while he does pay a pivotal role in some of the story, I wish that we had learned more about Taylor and heard less about Leslie. The story is sweet and it does make me wonder what is next for the couples within the story. ~AvidReader
