Blog Tour: M/M ~ Feat of Clay by Susan Mac Nicol ~ (ARC Review, NSFW Excerpt, Teasers + Book Trailer)
Imprisoned and tortured, undercover cop Tate Williams will find redemption in the arms of his boyhood friend, now lover, former SAS soldier Clay Mortimer.
TORN. TORTURED. LOVED.
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.
Feat of Clay Excerpt 2 *NSFW*
He grinned as his pants were unzipped and Tate’s tongue came out to wet his very kissable lips. At that sight, Clay’s cock instantly plumped up. The sly caress of Tate’s thumb across the head of his dick made it even perkier. Clay settled comfortably back against the couch, stretching his arms across the back, hitching a breath as Tate’s mouth swallowed him down. The image of Tate’s mouth on him, dark head bobbing up and down with his little moans of pleasure teasing his cock, never failed to arouse Clay. Tate was exceptionally good at sucking cock and enjoyed it immensely. His hot, wet tongue flicking against Clay’s tip, those long, steady licks against his shaft as Tate glanced up at Clay, holding him mesmerised. The fact this was his Tate was a turn-on itself.
“Your mouth is too good at this,” Clay hissed, eyes closing in bliss as Tate took him deep, throat massaging his sensitive dick. “I know I say that every time.” His voice caught as Tate’s tongue did something to him that sent all the nerve endings in his body aflame. “Christ that felt good. Do it again.”
Tate’s gave a wicked chuckle as his dirty mouth drove Clay crazy. When he pulled off, Clay moaned pitifully.

I loved this story, it was well-written and even when dealing with very intense psychological issues, it was done in an informed, well-researched way.
Tate used to be an undercover policeman, until he was kidnapped and abused by a druglord, now he is trying to deal with the repercussions of those hellish four days and trying to build a life with his long life friend and new lover, Clay. Juggling with PTSD and with his lover coddling him and trying to keep him a secret from others to protect him, is proving to be more than he can bear, though.
Clay is the head of an elite investigation agency and has been in love with Tate for almost as long as they've known each other, but it wasn't until after Tate was left for dead, and miraculously survived, that he decided to step up his game and they got together. He's possessive and is scared that anything will happen to Tate and it will be his fault this time around.
The chemistry between both men was amazing! The love scenes were uber hot, and they were certainly well matched.
I also adored seeing the rest of Clay's friends, from the other Men of London books, and read how well they are all doing with their significant others.
My only complaint is that I would have loved to see how Tate and Clay entered into their relationship, rather than just being told about it, other than that the story was fast-paced and intense and fantastic all around.
