Susan Mac Nicol - Love and Punishment 2SM

Love & Punishment


Susan Mac Nicol

On the search for a serial killer, Detective Anthony Parglietto and Flynn Parker learn that every man must make a choice: to kill, to live, to love.


Someone is leaving a trail of bodies throughout London, and Detective Anthony Parglietto is determined to end the violence. Then he’ll return to the man he loves.

Tough, street-savvy, and used to dealing with lowlifes, Flynn Parker is the last person Anthony thinks he has to protect. Then the Bow-Tie Killer strikes close to home and the world turns upside down. Right is wrong, black is white, and a policeman might become a monster. But in the name of love, justice must be served. In the name of love, pain can be endured. In the name of love, a man can taste the very essence that defines him. 


Anthony walked down the hall. He reached the bedroom and gently pushed the door open. He saw Flynn framed in the light of the lamp shining from the lounge. He lay, apparently asleep, on the leather and wood divan Anthony had brought over from Italy. Its dark burgundy colour contrasted with what Flynn wore, which was nothing but a black thong lying stark against his pale skin. The divan was under the window. The bed covers were rumpled, as if Flynn had been sleeping. His robe was draped across the foot of the bed. Anthony moved towards the gleaming body of his supine lover.

Flynn’s face was turned away towards the back of the sofa. His dark hair was tousled and his arms stretched above his head to the right. He wore a blindfold. Anthony felt a stir in his groin seeing those lean, hairy legs stretched out wantonly, inviting him to run his hands up and over his groin. Even appearing asleep, Flynn had the power to excite him, to make Anthony hard and ready. He stepped towards him, watching the rise and fall of Flynn’s chest with their already hardened nubs. Anthony wanted to run his tongue over that chest, with its smattering of fine hair, to take Flynn’s nipples in his mouth and suck them until Flynn groaned in pleasure. As he got closer in the dim light he saw the hands with their bonds of silk. Green bonds lay dark against Flynn’s wrists, fastened to the wooden struts of the upright chair arm. His hands were tight fists. Anthony chuckled softly, a noise that sounded loud in the stillness of the room.

“Been waiting long?’ he whispered as he took off his jacket. ‘I tried to get home as soon as I could.”

Anthony knew the bonds would be loose so Flynn could break free if needed but he also knew he wouldn’t. It was the way the game was played.

She has written nine novels, two novellas and a screenplay since February 2012 and clearly believes in keeping herself busy. She has found herself wanting to stay in the sub-genre that is M/M Romance so more can definitely be expected.

Her plan is to keep writing as long as her muse sits upon her shoulder. Her dream is to make enough money to give up the day job and get that big old house in the English countryside overlooking a river, where she can write all day and continue to indulge her passion for telling stories.

Review: Flynn is a reporter and made a statement to the press telling a serial killer labelled the Bow Tie Killer (BTK) that he wanted to tell his story. He finds himself abducted and terrorized by the killer. Anthony is the detective in charge of the case and Flynn’s lover. After Flynn’s abduction, he is more determined than ever to find this killer. Anthony’s views of justice are not widely received on the force and this causes conflict with his new partner because Anthony feels if the killer isn’t dead he will get out and continue his death tolls.

As you can see there is a lot of suspense going on here. There are other key characters as well, we have Kieren, Flynn’s ex-lover, several people on the force, and there are others as well. Every single character is well written and intriguing.

This is a very powerful, angsty, psychological thriller full of emotion, chilling suspense and really hot sex. I will warn you it’s not for the squeamish, there is violence and rape. Don’t read this right after eating. Also, be sure to set enough time once you start reading you won’t want to put it down. It is a real page-turner.

One thing I really loved was that we actually meet the murder and part of the story is told in his and his current boyfriends view. I found this a very intriguing concept.

The one thing I did’nt like is it felt as if it were from a series or a spin-off as I would have loved to known where and when and how Flynn and Anthony met and got together, more about Flynn and Kieran’s relationship and a few small details that were brought up.  There was enough backstory that it was easy to follow but I just felt like a little bit was missing. If there was a book with these guys in it before I would absolutely love to read it and I would love to see more of these guys!

If you love psychological thrillers, stories set in England (I love the charm of the characters and setting) Police detectives, news reporters, chills and thrills, mystery and suspense and some smokin hot man-sex this is for you.
