About the Author
Susan Mac Nicol is a self confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, self confessed geek and nerd and in love with her Smartphone. This little treasure is called ‘the boyfriend’ by her long suffering husband, who says if it vibrated, there’d be no need for him. Susan hasn’t had the heart to tell him there’s an app for that… She is never happier than when sitting in the confines of her living room/study/on a cold station platform scribbling down words and making two men fall in love. She is a romantic at heart and believes that everything happens (for the most part) for a reason. She likes to think of herself as a ‘half full’ kinda gal, although sometimes that philosophy is sorely tested. Lover of walks in the forest, theatre productions, dabbling her toes in the cold North Sea and the vibrant city of London where you can experience all four seasons in a day , she is a hater of pantomime (so please don’t tar and feather her), duplicitous people, bigotry and self righteous idiots. In an ideal world, Susan Mac Nicol would be Queen of England and banish all the bad people to the Never Never Lands of Wherever -Who Cares. As that’s never going to happen, she contents herself with writing her HEA stories and pretending, that just for a little while, good things happen to good people.

Dark, but brilliant read.

Alexander Montgomery wrote his books with a specific actor in mind to play the lead character. So it was only a matter of time til he crossed paths with Christopher Sage. The attraction is instant and powerful. But Alex has a dark past, one that impedes the present and his future. Can Sage see beyond the man Alex was, and be the man Alex needs?

This was a holiday read, and hence the review is shorter than usual.

I enjoyed this. We are kept waiting for the true extent of Alex' past to be revealed. We are kept waiting as to who was causing all the trouble, and that was so NOT who I thought it was!

There is a great deal of pain in this book, both emotional and physical. It makes for a difficult read, but an extremely good one. Be mindful of triggers though, I can see that some readers would be affected by the topics in the book : rape, drug abuse, cults, kidnapping. There are some seriously psychotic characters here you gotta watch out for those!

I originally was gonna give this book 4.5 stars, but typing it up, I'm not going to quibble over half a star and am upgrading to the full 5 stars. Sometimes it happens, I stick to my original rating, and sometimes, I can't find a reason to give the lower rate.

so!

5 stars
