Kyle Tripper has led an interesting life. Currently the manager of London's famous Club Delish, he used to be a croupier extraordinaire in Las Vegas. But not everything in that life was so glamorous; his ex was a piece of work. Now gun-shy, Kyle hopes there is someone special out there for him, and secretly wishes it's luscious paramedic, Eric Kirby.
Every day Eric Kirby goes through the motions. Yeah, he saves lives, and, sure, he makes a difference, but he doesn't feel it anymore - not since he lost his one true. But, when he meets wild, flamboyant Kyle Tripper and learns there's a skittish, apprehensive man beneath the bold façade, the best of Eric's protective nature kicks in and opens his heart to a new love.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was gifted my copy of this book, that I write a review was not required. Book 9 in the series, but they can all be read as stand alones. I've somehow managed to miss reading book 8, Hard Climate. It overlaps a little with this one, so I've had spoilers for that book, but I don't care. I LOVE LOVE this series! Kyle left Vegas and returned to London after he managed to get away from his nasty piece of work of an ex. He's a little wary now, but paramedic Eric makes him feel himself again. But both Kyle and Eric have skeletons in their closets, and its a matter of whether they can both overcome them. I loved this one! Well, I loved most of them but the damaged characters Ms Mac Nicol writes about are the ones who get me the most. Both guys are dealing with PTSD, and they know it. They know at some point they are going to have to open their hearts to someone new, but both are wary of being hurt again. Understandably, when you read WHY each man is so wary. But their feelings creep up on them and I do love it when emotionally damaged characters finally let some one in. Makes me cheer! Ms Mac Nicol's levels of research never cease to amaze me. Research into Eric's work life. Into Kyle's former job, and what happened to him in Vegas. How Kyle was reacting to Eric now. Such high levels of research do not go unnoticed, and I noticed. The screens between the guys are hot and steamy, but also sweet at times, to enable Kyle to get used to Eric. You feel for them, you really do, and in a way only Ms Mac Nicol can deliver that feeling. Certainly sitting way up with Feat of Clay as my stand out favourites of the series. Thank you, for my copy! 5 full and shiny stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
