The sex was used as a sort of healing for Tate who was suffering some major angst. I found this a little surprising, due to one of the causes of said angst. But what do I know? I'm no psychiatrist. Anyway,I don't want to go into detail of what happened to Tate and spoil the story for you. Clay is a solid character who we get to know through his relationship with Tate. We do find out that he is alpha by nature and very possessive. He also has a special forces background. Unfortunately I found him a bit cliched, and his character undeveloped.I didn't find him a particularly compelling character.
This was quite a dark tale, but there was some light in it. I enjoyed reading about Tate working with the abused children. There was some feeling here, his relationship with one of the boys, Jax, helped both him and Jax. They obviously connected, and it was nice to read about Jax starting to come out of his shell. I'm certain Jax will get his own book later.
So, I must admit, a little bit of a disappointment, however, if you follow this series the book's a must read. The story was, as with all of Susan Mac Nicol's work, very well written and well executed. I just didn't enjoy these two as much as the couples from the previous books. I liked the book, but I didn't love it, as with the other three.
Unlike the many other Susan Mac Nicol books I have read, Feat of Clay didn’t give me ‘those’ feels. I didn’t want to dive inside the story and hug the protagonists. So, is this due to my own state of mind when I read the book?
The more I think about it, the more I blame myself. I have been hectically busy and have reached a temporary point where reading has lost its magic. How can I be so sure? One of the only differences between Tate and Clay and the majority of Susan Mac Nicol’s other partnerships is that this is not a fledgling romance. Tate and Clay have moved from best friends to lovers and Clay was there to support Tate at the lowest point in his life.
Whilst Tate’s PTSD makes him vulnerable, Clay’s sometimes overbearing love for Tate leaves him in a perilous position. Susan Mac Nicol allows these two men to develop and realign their relationship.
Throughout the story I was unconvinced by the couple’s use of sex as a cure-all. With some of Tate’s issues being rooted in the sexual abuse that he suffered, I found it hard to understand his need to comfort himself with Clay in this way. However, I would like to point out that I am no therapist and this is a personal opinion.
Susan Mac Nicol continues to expand her Men of London series and I know that many of her readers will be asking for Jax’s story once they have finished Feat of Clay. He is a young man who deserves love and I know that Susan Mac Nicol will do him justice.
Feat of Clay may not have consumed me in the way that the author’s other books have, but I know that new and old fans will love Tate and Clay.
I received this as a complimentary copy, in exchange for an honest review.
This is book four in this series, you don't need to read the other books, but it helps. It helps to get a feel for Susan's writing and for the other men who feature in the series and in this book. I'd say read the others first, but some might not.
Clay and Tate, best friends since they went to school together. Tate went into the police force, and Clay, the army. Neither man admitted what they felt for each other, until Tate was found, shot, beaten and tortured after an undercover op went terribly wrong. A year later, and Tate is still suffering. Clay doesn't know everything that happened to Tate. Tate has to tell him, but will Clay walk away, now they finally are together??
THIS book, this story and Tate and Clay, is by far my favourite in the series. Its dark, its deadly, its painful, its sexy, hot and emotionally charged! It has beautifully written, from both men's POV and carries quite a weight!
Tate is still suffering from PTSD, and wants things to go back to normal, or as normal as they can be, working for Clay and living with him too. It took a long time for them to admit to each other what they felt, but Clay fears for Tate. His job makes him a target, and if Clay's enemies learn of his relationship with Tate, it might make Tate a target too. And Clay just got Tate, he can't lose him now. And THAT is affecting Tate, without Clay realising it.
While very well written, it is hard work at points, reading what happened to Tate and how both men are dealing with things now. I wanted to gather Tate up, and just hug him, I really did. I cried at a couple of points too. I'll not say when, but you'll know when you read them, you really will.
We meet Jax, at the halfway house for kids that Tate's therapist suggest he goes help. He is 17 here. His story is planned, I know. And I can't wait to read that. I fell in love with him here.
5 full and shiny stars (even if they are a little splattered with spray paint!)
