Flight attendant Maxwell Lewis has spent years cultivating a bon vivant image only to find he finally wants something more—and that something more includes the never-does-repeats game designer Gibson Henry.

ABOVE AND BEYOND

Maxwell Lewis is proud of the life he’s made. Having turned tragedy into triumph, he’s now a beloved member of a Target Airlines cabin crew with more than his fair share of attention both in the air and on the ground. But lately he’s wanted something more than the occasional hook-up or sometime sex buddy—particularly after meeting game designer and passenger Gibson Henry. 

Talented and driven, Gibson has built a company ready to be the next big thing in gaming. Devoted to his work, he takes onetime pleasures where he find them and never does repeats…which is what he tells handsome, sexy Maxwell Lewis after a little mile-high flight attendance. But a chance encounter in a London club is about to change things forever. Two men, one who’s flown solo and another who’s only ever played alone, are about to find that at some point all games come to end, it’s time to bare your heart and try for love.

5.0

Flying Solo by Susan Mac Nicol is the sixth book in her Men of London series. Each book is essentially a stand-alone, however they are all linked by friendship between two or more protagonists. Flying Solo can definitely be read separately, but this series is so beautifully written that I recommend reading them in order. 

Maxwell Lewis is a flight attendant for Target airlines. At 27 he finally has his life together, after a childhood and adolescence that he's worked hard to put behind him. Max is essentially happy with his life and job, but is starting to tire of random hook ups. Finding a man to love and settle down with is becoming more and more important to him. The main problem with this plan is the hours he keeps and the constant travelling required for his job. 

At the relatively young age of 24, Gibson Henry is a gaming wiz kid. With his business partner, Jack, he is finally beginning to achieve his life goals. They already have a financially viable gaming business, but if their next big game can win some major awards, then they will have the resources to take their business to the next level. Gibson is completely absorbed in developing their latest LGBT game, Camp Queen, and winning the British Gaymz Choice award for 'Most Anticipated a Game of 2016'. A relationship is the furthest thing from his mind. Random hook ups yes, but he has neither the time nor the inclination to move beyond that. 

When Gibson meets gorgeous flight attendant, Maxwell, on an overnight trip, joining the mile high club sounds like a fun way to pass some time. Max, however, is completely captivated by the diminutive, gorgeous, blond gamer. After Gibson makes it clear it's a one time thing, Maxwell resigns himself to never seeing Gibson again. He's clearly not interested and there seems to be nothing Max can do to change his mind. Running into each other at a London gay bar, on 'gladiators and glad rags' night, the two scantily dressed men find themselves chatting at the bar. An aggressive 'suit' abusing and slapping Gibson is a step way too far for Max, however, and his highly unusual method of repelling the attacker leads Gibson to reassess his knight (or should I say 'karate kid') in a gladiator toga. 

Watching these two gorgeous young men dance around each other and discover their true feelings over the course of the next few months makes for a riveting read. Max is developing strong feelings for Gibson, but will his past come back to haunt him and ruin everything? Can Gibson lift his head up from his computer long enough to see what's right in front of him? Can Max survive a 'google of nerds'? Will you ever look at a box of wet wipes the same way again? So many questions, and Flying Solo will captivate you until the very last page as you wait to find out. Well perhaps the wet wipes question can only be answered by the reader... 

I absolutely loved this beautiful story. It made me cry, it made me laugh, it kept me riveted, and left me with a huge smile on my face when I'd finished it. I highly recommend this heartwarming book. Five fabulous stars.
