ARC REVIEW: Flying Solo (Men of London #6) by Susan Mac Nicol #MM #LGBT #Romance

Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance, part of the Men of London Series
Release Date: January 28, 2016
Publisher:  Boroughs Publishing Group
Length: 173 pages

Description: 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. 


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 finds 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.

Flying Solo is the tale of two very different men. One, Maxwell, has crawled and scraped himself off the streets, where he did whatever he could to survive, and into a respectable position as part of the cabin crew at Target Airlines. But he's getting tired of the mile-high club and the array of sexual partners at every port. He wants something more. He wants Gibson.

Unfortunately, Gibson wants something less. A man with a relatively uncomplicated past, he's a computer nerd who is determined to make it in the gaming world. He never sleeps with the same man twice because why bother with relationships? He's far too busy getting his new company off the ground. He never even thinks about past sexual partners... But that all changes when he meets Max. 

I loved seeing how the relationship between these two men evolved from one focused on sex only to one where trust and friendship become the main elements. As they share more of themselves, more of their hearts, their bond deepens until neither man can imagine a life without the other. 

Susan did a great job of incorporating humor into her writing with this book. Maxwell is always up for a great one-liner, and while he keeps his most outrageous thoughts to himself, we as the reader are privy to them. These two had me laughing out loud:
When he was released and Gibson stepped back, lips swollen and wet, Maxwell tried to gather his brains back into his head from his crotch so he could form a sentence. He was still trying to when Gibson spoke.
Wall to wall geek. Maxwell wasn't sure what the collective noun was for a bunch of them gathered at a gaming conference, but he thought that perhaps a google of geeks might be a good term. Maybe even a nerd herd.

Flying Solo is some of Susan Mac Nicol's best writing!

OUR RATING: 4.5 stars!
