Feat of Clay (Men of London #4) by Susan Mac Nicol

Feat of Clay (Men of London #4)


Imprisoned and tortured, undercover cop Tate Williams will find redemption in the arms of his boyhood friend, now lover, former SAS soldier Clay Mortimer.


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.

My Review

Susan Mac Nicol does not shy away from difficult subjects. In fact, she tackles them head on.
This  book is filled with many tough subjects to include abuse, torture, kidnapping, suicide and more.

Feat of Clay doesn't pull any punches and opens right up with sadness and a holy shit moment!!

There's beauty in a battered soul learning to find their way out of the dark and who better to help you with that than the man you've been in love with since you were both kids.
Clay's unyielding love and protectiveness for Tate is awe inspiring.

Sex as therapy? Hmmm That's what Tate's therapist suggested, but in my opinion there might have been just a tad too much of it.  Oddly enough, this is one of my favorite quotes...

"Let's just go to bed so I can fuck some loving into you."

There was also the usual witty banter which I've come to know and love, but not as predominant as in the others in the series. I did laugh out loud with Clay and the liquorice though!

And finally, I really enjoyed the interaction with the children at the halfway house as well as Jax. 
Is he to be a future mc? I would love it if he was!

For now, I look forward to the next Men of London and Lenny!!!!
