Damaged Goods (Men of London) by Susan Mac Nicol

Touched by tragedy, love is an elusive dream never to be realised by eighteen-year-old Jax Grady--until he discovers his secret admirer and receives the sweetest gift he could ever desire.


Tragedy and horror shaped Jackson Grady's life, leaving him orphaned and scarred. At eighteen he's ready to claim his future, but who could love his disfigured face and damaged soul? Definitely not a big, burly, beautiful Irish Traveller who is entirely the stuff of dreams. 

Dare Rowan didn't mean to become obsessed with the blue-eyed man he first saw across a field, but that porcelain skin and innocent air demanded another meeting. Jax has the face of a wounded angel, and the rest of the young man is as heart-breakingly perfect. Jax is beautiful in every way and teaching him about love and life will be something Dare will embrace. Like unwrapping and savouring the candy at the shop where he works, Dare will show this young man everything Jax desired but never thought he'd have, and take Jax to new highs while he holds him through the lows. Between them, they’ll find out just how sweet life can be.

We were introduced to Jax and his tragic past in Feat of Clay. I was so intrigued with him and could not wait for him to have his story told!

Jax is a young, sweet, innocent, insecure, damaged teenager. 
Oh and horny! Let's not forget horny!
At the same time, he's one of the bravest and strongest characters I've had the pleasure of reading about!
Because of his past and where he saw his future, he never dreamed of finding love or companionship.

Dare was so adorable! Big, strapping man with tats, working in a candy store. He's kind, gentle and caring. I absolutely adored his family also!
He was patient with Jax, his feelings and needs.

He himself seemed insecure and uncertain at times.

Dare was like Jax's wet dream come to life! He was everything Jax thought he would never have, never get to experience. 
Jax was so feisty and eager to experience, yet the progression of their relationship went at a very steady and slower pace than he would have liked! I think it was perfect.
There were funny moments, oh so sweet and tender ones and certainly a few sniffles!

I LOVED Jax & Dare!!

This was the sweetest story and without a doubt my favorite of the Men of London series!
