Survival Game by Susan Mac Nicol


Since his true love died, paramedic Eric Kirby has been living a half life, but when he meets purple-haired Kyle Tripper, Eric's heart is jolted into a whole new rhythm.

HANDLE...

Kyle Tripper has led an interesting life. Currently the manager of London's famous Club Delish, he used to be a croupier extraordinaire in Las Vegas. But not everything in that life was so glamorous; his ex was a piece of work. Now gun-shy, Kyle hopes there is someone special out there for him, and secretly wishes it's luscious paramedic, Eric Kirby.

WITH CARE

Every day Eric Kirby goes through the motions. Yeah, he saves lives, and, sure, he makes a difference, but he doesn't feel it anymore - not since he lost his one true. But, when he meets wild, flamboyant Kyle Tripper and learns there's a skittish, apprehensive man beneath the bold façade, the best of Eric's protective nature kicks in and opens his heart to a new love.

Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the ninth book in the series – and it does not waver in its fresh look at life in London for this group of men living to the full. This follows on closely from Hard Climate, so I would at least recommend that you read that one first. The links to the other books are tenuous, but there for the fan to enjoy.

Kyle is a man who has suffered badly at the hands of his previous lover, and we learn very early on that he falls back into the nightmare when pressed. The set-up is very clever, because the rest of the book the reader is waiting for the shoe to drop, just like he is. He is not, however, a coward, and loves his job with Ryan at Club Delish.

Eric had a brief romance with Ryan, but now he goes to Club Delish to see Kyle – and wonder whether it is time to move on from his past. Knowing that he too has a tortured past, gives the reader hope that the chemistry between Eric and Kyle may just give them both the future they deserve.

As always, there is plenty of passion, a large dose of drama, and the opportunity to make a life together – very satisfying read, thank you, Ms. Mac Nicol.


Angie☆☆☆
I am probably going to be in the minority on this book, however, it just didn't work for me. I truly enjoy this series and I will continue to read it, but this one missed the mark for me. I didn't connect with either Kyle or Eric, I wanted to, I tried, it just didn't work. Then Ryan gets sick and we all know him from a previous book and that seemed to be skimmed over – or at least not enough time was spent on it for me. Kyle does have a touchy past and it could be a trigger for some people; and poor Eric, I will say my heart broke for him when I read his first nightmare about Lincoln. Even though I didn't connect with the characters and it didn't hit the mark for me, it was still a good addition to the series.
