    3 Stars!!Leslie, character we met before in the two previous books in the series, is a proud flamboyant twink that works at a local fashion house providing exclusive man and women’s suits. He loves his job, his loves his life and he loves his friends and he secretly wants what his two best friends have – love. He wants to be in a serious relationship more than anything, to care for someone and someone to care for him. He knows he’s a little high maintenance, but he can only hope. One day when he is sent by his boss to deliver a suit to an important client, he’s more than shocked when he discovers the client is his favorite porn star, Oliver Brown, who retired a few years ago. Leslie doesn’t know many details about Oliver’s retirement, but he’s dying to know what happened with him and what did he dis all these years. Oliver is damaged. Years ago he was involved in a motorcycle accident that scarred him. He has fears and insecurities and he feels staying isolated it’s for the best. He’s a bit of a hermit, having occasional ‘dates’ with discreet escorts from an agency.Leslie is attracted to Oliver, but he can say the other man is not looking for a relationship, so all he wants is for them to become friends. He is insistent and eventually Oliver agrees to go out with him as friends. As the story progresses, Oliver starts to want more and to realize that Leslie really cares for him and he doesn’t see him as a monster. But he’s not completely convinced by this fact, so when someone tries to hurt him emotionally, Oliver feels too insecure to continue his relationship with Leslie. “Suit Yourself” was a pretty light, easy to read novel with two likeable characters, a lovely romance and an enjoyable plot. Leslie was a great character from the beginning. I loved his personality and I have to say he’s my favorite character in the series. He’s a kind man and a great friend, he’s good at his job and he knows what he wants from a relationship. He’s gorgeous and smart, funny and witty, loyal and caring. Oliver was likeable as well and I really sympathize with him. He’s a little damaged, but with Leslie’s help he eventually realizes he deserves to be happy and to have a significant other. I liked the fact there’s no insta-love or insta-lust, even if both men are attracted with each other. I enjoyed how their relationship progressed and also how Leslie tries to be there for Oliver when he needs someone to talk to. There’s a little amount of angst and drama, but nothing too heavy. It was great to meet again the other characters from the previous books in the series and to see them all interact with each other.Overall, a good read!

    *3.5 stars for Leslie, and Leslie alone*Before anything else, I'll just point out that, according to the dedication, the guy on the cover is a friend of the author's who posed just for this book in his own corset and high heels. I think this is super cool!I 've been very excited for this, because Leslie was a very interesting character in the previous books of the series and I wanted him to get his own story. And as far as Leslie is concerned, the author did not disappoint. Witty, smart, gorgeous and funny as hell, he wears his heart on his sleeve and walks in high heels like he was born in them (oh yes, if you don't like crossdressing don't read this). He is a diva and acts like one, but at the same time a sweetheart, a great lover and an amazing friend.Now, Oliver...I did not like him. I never warmed up to him, start to finish, he was not worthy of Leslie and to be honest I would prefer Leslie to end up with Frankie, another character in the book, who wanted him. My biggest problems with Oliver:*He is an ex porn star. Porn stars and gay for pay generally is not my favourite theme but I don't dismiss books because of it often. The problem here is that Oliver was actually nostalgic of his past, he would talk wistfully of his porn days and misses the "career" he left behind. Dude! You were a porn star, not an oscar winning actor! The guy would even jerk off to his own movies!No....just no.*Oliver was living isolated because of an accident ( for which he was 100% to blame) that left him scarred. Bullshit. I think he was just vain. Leslie and other characters from the book admitted that he was exagerating, the scar was not that bad.*He was a complete asshole to Leslie towards the end, using the most common and shittiest excuse out there : "you deserve better".TBH I'm kinda disappointed but there are some pretty interesting secondary characters in the book and if the author decides to give them a story, I would read it.

    4,5 stars.The third and best story of the Men of London series. I liked the previous books and I looooved this one. Flamboyant, heel-and-tiny-short-wearing Lesley is a real firecracker. Loved him to bits. Highly recommended!

    Absolutely Amazing #mustread#oneclick#SuitYourself#MenOfLondon3Suit Yourself is book #3 in the Men Of London Series by Susan Mac Nicol.Everytime I read a book from Susan I say it's my fav and then Boom she hits me with another masterpiece. This is Leslie Scott's story , we are introduced to him in books 1&2, he is such a sparkling, feisty and loyal guy. Leslie works in the fashion industry, which is ideal for him being he loves to dress in high fashion, heels, stockings and just about everything sexy (including corsets and thongs) which ,will have you laughing when you get to that part which plays a major part in the meeting of Oliver Brown aka ex porn star Nicky Starr. Leslie was summoned to deliver a suit to one of his company's best clients who no one has actually met face to face. Well .. Let's say when this meeting takes place Leslie's uncomfortable Thong will have you in stitches. Oliver Brown is a very damaged soul both mentally and physically due to an accident a few years back and abuse from an ex who mentally broke him. He has become a recluse more or less only socializing with a very close few. Leslie and Oliver had such great chemistry from the start but being hurt and hidden Oliver was very reluctant to show any interest. Leslie had no idea who Oliver was but knew that he looked familiar, that is until Leslie spotted the Tramp Stamp Tattoo then all his senses went full force ahead. Oliver (ex porn star Nicky Starr) was Leslie's absolute obsession.Things begin to work out between the two and their relationship is off the charts Hot I fell in love with these too so much I actually felt everything they were going through as if I was there with them. Leslie was breaking down the walls that Oliver had built up until Oliver's ex strikes and has him doubting he is good enough to please Leslie.I won't lie you will shed a few tears but Susan being brilliant as always will not disappoint. In this book we see a side of Leslie that we have not seen previously all he wants is to have what his friends have in their relationships and I fell in love with him so much more in this story.Leslie wears his heart on his sleeve, and when he loves he loves hard, which also means he hurts hard too. With the help and support of his best friends, Eddie and Taylor and their partners who we meet in the first two books Leslie tries to get his life back. Circumstances happen and Oliver knows he has to win back his feisty lover so we get a ton of Hot Steamy sex and let me tell you you will need a cold shower. This Book can be read as a stand alone but I highly recommend reading Love You Senseless #1, and Sight and Sinners #2, so you get a better insight of Leslie and his friends Eddie and Taylor. I can't recommend this book enough if I could, I'd rate it so much higher than 5 stars. Susan you out did yourself once again with this amazing and brilliant story and I'm so looking forward to reading the next books in the series . "This time we are doing this in the bedroom," Leslie muttered as he propelled him toward his room. " I want a soft bed, mood lighting and ambience for this session."Oliver snorted in laughter as Leslie pushed him inside and into the bed. "I'm ok with that. My couch and that damn kitchen counter have never seen so much action."I'm fine,so sorry, my bad. Please don't be too mad with me. I forgot 'cos I was BBDIMBF xoxoxo

    4.5 Leslie really is a firecracker. He’s a fashion marvel, snarky, funny and perfectly manicured, buffed, Jimmy Choo’d and shined. I absolutely adored his character. He’s been done wrong by his cheating ex, Simon, but he doesn’t let that hamper his enjoyment of life. And don’t underestimate him. He’s no “slim twink who can’t say boo to a ghost.” He’s a bit of a snob, too, but that just keeps him from being too perfect.Leslie works at DeBussy’s, a fashion house run by the marvelous Laverne, and he’s all about it. When he is asked to deliver a suit to a client with the “boring” name of Oliver Brown, he’s not really thrilled but since he gets a new spec suit and shoes out of the deal, he’s on it. Mr. Brown, it turns out, is a recluse with a suit addiction. He lives in a beautifully decorated house that he rarely leaves since an accident that scarred his face. The fact that Leslie recognizes him as Nicky Starr, porn star, is unfortunate. Oliver is no longer that person. Leslie, being Leslie, keeps sticking his foot in it, too. “It’s just a bit of a shock. I mean, you were so beautiful…” It goes from bad to worse after that and Oliver is left wondering why he bothered. Honestly, I can’t think of a thing I’d change about Leslie, even with his foot-in-mouth moment. Because he cares about people. He tries to make amends with Oliver and he works the, gasp, fashion show back stage. The whole scene there made me laugh, particularly his reaction to a vagina. I loved the interactions between Oliver and Leslie. Leslie can be sort of over the top and Oliver is more calm. Except when he’s talking about web design and then he turns into an adorable geek. Oliver is so conscious of his facial scar, it’s a bit heart breaking. Leslie convincing him to go to dinner and just have a friend is such a good start. As Oliver shares his story with Leslie, and Leslie starts to fall for Oliver, the connection between the two is wonderful. Leslie is the only man to get Oliver to go out but Oliver is the only man to make Leslie snort. Of course, Oliver’s ex has to make an appearance and throw his brand of cruelty in the mix. My how I hate Gregori. Oliver’s misguided efforts to make things good for Leslie made me want to shake him. But with that little self esteem, I got what he was thinking. There have to be some twists and turns on the road, I suppose, in order to really appreciate what you’ve got. When Leslie decides to take on the idiot making Oliver unhappy, I wanted to clap. Go get him, Leslie. I liked getting to revisit Eddie and Gideon, as well as Taylor and Draven. I absolutely loved the positive sweetness of the ending. Highly recommended!

    Independent Reviewer fro Arcaheolibrarian I Dig Good Books, I received this book direct from the author in exchange for my review.Leslie was Eddie and Taylor's house mate. Buyer for a major fashion house, Leslie is sent to deliver a suit to one Mr Oliver Brown. Leslie knows he has seen him before, but its not until he gets a glimpse of the man's tramp stamp that recognition dawns. Oliver Brown, AKA Nikki Starr, porn star, is in hiding after a horrific accident broke him, inside and out. Leslie is a breathe of much needed fresh air, a star shining so bright that Oliver can't help but fall under his glow. But when a vicious ex undermines Oliver's new found confidence, Oliver retreats and pushes Leslie away.Leslie just wants someone like Eddie and Taylor have, he is tired of being the fifth wheel. While to intial attraction Leslie has to Oliver is instant, (the man was star in many of Leslie's fantasies, for God's sake!) once they get to know each other and be friends first, its whats on the insdie that Leslie loves. And when Leslie loves, he loves hard and fast. And I loved falling with him. Oliver is damaged, both physically and emotionally and the ex's parting words linger in his brain 2 full years after they were uttered- he is a monster and no one will ever love him. And that is true, but only for as long as Oliver won't let anyone in, won't let anyone love him. Leslie shines his way in, and Oliver is caught, hook line and sinker.I'm loving this series, I really am! Eddie, Gideon, Taylor, and Draven all play a part here, and for that I am eternally grateful! I love we get to catch up with them as well as delving into the fashion and porn world.A few more to come, I have been reliably informed, and I look forward to reading them as they arrive.I enjoyed this more than Love You Senseless but not as much as Sights and Sinners, so splitting the difference and you get4.75 stars!**Same worded review appears on Godreads, and**

    OMG Susan Mac Nicol another book in the series and another 5 star result!Leslie story is... well is full of Leslie LOL, is charming, sweet, funny, camp, romantic, sexy, its everything I was expecting it to be and more.It was a beautiful book, after Sight and Sinners we were all left expectantly waiting to hear Leslie's. We have fallen in love with him since the fist book in the Men Of London Series. We knew that inspire of being such a cute and quirky character he also had a very sensitive side to himself and that whomever fall for him was in for a multicolour ride!.The story begins when Leslie is asked to deliver a suit to a prominent client from the company he works for, Debussy. What we don't expect is him being greeted by ex-porn star and total sex God Nicky Starr, however he goes by his real name now and is carrying a hell of a lot of bagage. What happens once Leslie sets foot inside Oliver's house sets in motion of a multitude of funny yet heartfelt encounters. You see Nicky (AKA Oliver Brown), has been terribly hurt, in more ways than one, and the psychological and physical scars he is carrying have been a hinder for him to properly form ties with anyone. However he wasn't expecting Leslie Scott to knock at his door, wearing an uncomfortable thong and a killer smile. His life will never be the same. We also are joined by previous characters Eddie, Gideon, Travis and Draven from the last books, well Leslie needed his friends too!!I totally adored this book. It had so much charm, it had so many LOL moments but also had romance and very very steamy encounters.Well done Susan Mac Nicol for another enjoyable read. 5 massive CAMP stars.

    I have been waiting for Leslie’s story since the first book in this series. I wasn’t disappointed at all. Leslie is sent to deliver a suit to a man that rarely gets out but is one of their biggest clients. He is pleasantly shocked to find this man Oliver Brown is actually his favorite porn star that retired a few years back and seemed to have disappeared after a motorbike accident. Oliver is shocked when Leslie appears with his suit and bursts into his life. When Leslie is so persistent that they try to be friends he finally breaks down and invites him to coffee. But Oliver Is afraid that it will end the same as it always does, either he will be applied by the scars or he will want more than Oliver can give.This story was fun beautiful and sexy as hell. Leslie is a very flamboyant, in your face, different character. Oliver is so laid back and broken. There is the usual angst you get form Susan Mac Nichols, but in this book it isn’t as dark. Leslie helps to keep it more uplifting. There are several twists and turns, a little drama and loads of hot man-sex. There is lots of namedropping of new characters so I am hoping there will be more in this series. If you like a chipper, outgoing man that loves heels and corsets, broken men, a sweet romance, ex porn-stars and hot mansex this is definitely for you….You don’t have to read the other books in this series first, but it would help you know who the other characters are.* I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review through *

    4.5 StarsI absolutely adored this book. In fact this could quite possibly be my favorite book in this series. I didn't really look forward to Leslie's book to be honest. I just thought he was so over the top and dramatic sometimes, but this played out really, really well to me. I really like the way Oliver paired up with him and the couple they made. Leslie while still over the top was toned down by how withdrawn Oliver was and the way they both ended up being exactly what the other one needed totally worked for me. Although I would've liked to see Oliver come out of his shell a bit more, I think the book itself was perfect as it had to be taken in small steps after what he'd been through.... doesn't mean I wouldn't want more from him though. I loved that we got little bits of the men from previous books as well and they came to back Leslie when needed as he was there for both of them. I did find there were quite a few typos, but being that I got an early copy, those very well could be fixed by the time the book is published and I didn't mark down for it. I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.

    What a terrific sequel.I adore Leslie, I'm so glad he was exactly the same as he was in the preview books, "a big flamboyant diva with a huge heart".If this is the end of the series? because all 3 books were great, if the author decided to write more sequels, I wouldn't mind at all.This is my favorite far

    5 out of 5 starsDescription ~Scarred both physically and emotionally after a motorcycle accident, twenty-five year old ex fashion model and porn star Oliver Brown is about to be stripped bare by flamboyant twink Leslie Scott—and they’ll rebuild love from the bottom up.BARING THE BEASTTwenty-five year old Oliver Brown is addicted. Two years ago, he was at the height of his career as “Nikki Star,” fashion model, porn actor, partier without peer. Then came the accident. Hiding his scars, both emotional and physical, he’s gone into hiding. But fine clothing is some solace. A new suit by Debussy? Better even than a ride on his motorcycle Hulk or all the things he used to give and take on camera.Enter Leslie Scott, the flamboyant, dark-haired, heel-and-tiny-short-wearing twink sent to deliver Oliver’s newest fix. A firecracker, Leslie is dapper, generous, in touch with his feminine side but all man, and as gorgeous as any garment ever made. He makes Oliver dream of ending his reclusion, of recapturing a future forever denied him. But for that to happen, Leslie would have to strip him to the bone. Only then will they rebuild life from the bottom up.My Review ~Since the very first book in this series, I've been waiting for Leslie's story. I mean come on you KNEW he had to have one hell of a story to match that wildly fantastic personality. Suit Yourself definitely did not disappoint in anyway. Leslie was absolutely fabulous in his own book. And Oliver was deliciously sexy even when he didn't think so. Their first meeting was so awkward it was sweet and then Leslie figures out who Oliver is and gets all fanboy-ish. The dynamic between Leslie and Oliver is pretty powerful, and Leslie does his damnedest to prove to Oliver that he's still beautiful. Of course Oliver doesn't necessarily see that, he's so very self conscious thanks to an asshole of an ex who decided he needed to tear Oliver down. Unlike the other two books in the series there isn't a suspense element running through the story. This is all straight relationship between Oliver and Leslie, and also with Leslie and Taylor and Eddie, and also Leslie's boss Laverne. Which overall worked best for Leslie and Oliver's personalities. While their road to a relationship wasn't particularly smooth, it created enough tension to move the story at a steady pace. As I've become very accustomed to from this author, Suit Yourself is well written, with strong, very 'vocal' characters, with a good storyline. I've absolutely loved all of the books in the Men of London series so far, and I can't wait to read more in this world. I'd even love to see a novella revisiting the three roommates and their new partners at some point. I'm not ready to give up Eddie, Taylor, and Leslie, just yet. As this is a series, it's a good idea to read them in order because the books tie into each other. They could be read alone but you'll miss the roommates interacting with each other in the previous books. I can't recommend this series enough and hope you all give it a try!

    LeslieIn the first two books in the series we met this corset and heel wearing beautiful man. He's like a mama bear with his friends, has a huge heart and a kick ass wardrobe!"beauty, grace, and a warm-hearted beautiful soul."He also has a hilarious sense of humor and is a bit of a nervous talker!His antics had me continuously laughing out loud.The only thing irritating him about his outfit was his thong. It just wan't behaving properly, riding up his backside and into his crack. Leslie didn't mind fingers and tongues doing that, but an errant piece of fabric was simply a no-no.It was nice to see Leslie get his happily ever after. After both his best friends and housemates were paired off and out of their shared flat, Leslie was left all alone longing for that special person of his own.OliverOliver has a sad story. He was quite the celebrity in his prime. Popular, unbelievably handsome, a social butterfly and a bit of a suit whore!Unfortunately after some unforeseen events, he's become quite the recluse. Now he's hiding, feeling unworthy and definitely unlovable.Looking for love and that special someone to see the person he is inside is hard when you're trapped behind closed doors.. This was a sweet, funny and at times sad story. Leslie and Oliver shared an instant attraction but I like how they take things easy and form a friendship before jumping off into 'more'. I loved the banter and funny one liners I've come to expect with Susan's books.I really enjoyed Leslie's kinky side. I am an m/m lover, but have to say that I don't usually read about feminine men who wear women's clothing. So leave it to Susan Mac Nicol to change that!I must say... Leslie masturbating in bed wearing nothing but heels was one hell of a turn on, I kid you not!And I also appreciated their struggles with trust and acceptance. Their relationship wasn't all unicorns and rainbows. It was real, with real insecurities and heartache."Well, I'm not everybody. So don't taint me with the brush that other arseholes use."I really enjoyed Leslie and Oliver's story, as well as catching up a bit with the previous couples Gideon/Eddie and Taylor/Draven.Bring on the next Men of London!!! I'm ready!*arc provided by author for an honest reviewRead more at Judy's Confessions

    3.5 starsThis was Leslie's story, which I couldn't wait to read! Leslie lived up to his diva status and then some, but he's not annoying in the least. He's the king of ramblings and the queen of stilettos; the result? A character that I adored and who made me smile constantly.There are enough great reviews for this book, but here's my two cents: while the idea was great, it was also very predictable. As soon as Leslie invited Oliver at that fashion show and Oliver decided to go, I knew exactly what was going to happen. I really hoped to be wrong, because once a book becomes predictable, it also becomes boring, and who wants to read a boring book? Unfortunately, I wasn't wrong, and the events that took place after that retched show were predictable as well. I still enjoyed this book a lot, and there lots of hot sex in it; plus the chemistry between Leslie and Oliver is pretty hot as well.**********************************************************************************************************OMG, cover lust!!!! Leslie, that's so Leslie! I'm hyperventilating right now, I need this! ME WANTS IT NOW!!!!!!!

    I loved this book! It's a sexy M/M read about a man who used to be a star until one night and one man changed everything! It changed him physically and emotional to the point of depression! Then he meets a man that changes everything again but he goes through an emotional roller coaster along the way! A great sexy and exciting read!

    Original Blog Post: Blog Tour, eARC Review, Excerpt, Trailer & #Giveaway: Suit Yourself (Men of London #3) by Susan Mac NicolReview by: multitaskingmommaMy Rating: 5 of 5 StarsThe first time I met Leslie, he just stole the show from right under Eddie and Gideon. Don't take me wrong, I love all the Men of London, but there was just something about Leslie's antics, flamboyance, over the top-ness and strength beneath the seemingly fragile persona that caught my attention. When I got to read this in ARC form, I just gobbled him up. Then there is Nicky or erm, sorry, Oliver. Oliver is Nicky Starr (a play on another author's name Nic Starr) who lost his nerve after losing his looks to an accident. Or so he thinks. He was once a popular porn star and had been the subject of every man's (straight and gay) imagination. When he disappeared from the limelight, no one knew why, and one of those wondering was Leslie. When they meet eye to eye with a door between them, Leslie knew he had to reach out. Not as a fan. Not as the one to bring him the suits Laverne made. But as a friend. And those who follow this series know just what kind of friend Leslie is: loyal to the end like a pitbull locked on its prey. How could Oliver resist? I mean, I can't resist Leslie!!! Right? So their friendship flourishes and the romance insidiously inserted itself. Did they resist? Nah, of course not. But they did face some angst which they dealt with the help of some friends and on their own.I must say this is the BEST book of the three in the series so far released. Leslie is adorable! (Note: After reading through the reviews, it seems as though this guy is uber popular. Everybody loves Leslie!) I went through this in a flash and it was very well and lightly written, it actually came up short. Sigh. I just want more of them. Once you read this, you will, too.Who do I want to read about next? Well, I want the story of Laverne. But I have to wait it out for Tate and Clay are the next item and well, we'll just have to wait. I will definitely... and I am well known for my patience. Not!Overall, this is the best in both plot and development as well as writing style. The author's wit and humor shines through in this one and I just giggled all the way. From the moment Leslie cursed on that first page, I was hooked.

    Susan Mac Nicol writes contemporary m/m romances which are touching, sexy and brilliant; Suit Yourself is no exception. As the third instalment in a series and the tenth full-length novel Susan Mac Nicol has written in the genre, one may assume that they would pick up Suit Yourself knowing exactly what to expect, but this is definitely not the case. Yes, it’s true that structurally the story adheres to the formula of its genre; two individuals meet, they fall in love, there is angst but always a happy ending, but as fans of contemporary romances that is what we expect. However, it is Susan Mac Nicol ‘s ingenious characterisation which distinguishes her novels from the majority – and Leslie, in particular, is perhaps one of her most divine creations!In Love You Senseless and Sights and Sinners, we glimpsed Leslie as a loyal friend and vivacious fashionista, with a penchant for wearing high-heels. In Suit Yourself Leslie is at the point of seeing his two best friends paired off and though he is not desperate for a partner, he admits it would be nice. When he is asked to deliver a suit to a special Debussy customer, little does he realise he will be in the presence of a porn legend!Although this relationship between Oliver and Leslie could easily have been insta-love, Susan Mac Nicol allows it to progress organically, though with these two being so sexual, it doesn’t take long!In contrast to Leslie’s charisma and flair, we have Oliver who, despite his obsession with Debussy suits, is still dealing with the abuse he suffered from his ex-boyfriend and the trauma of a motorbike accident. Susan Mac Nicol ensures we follow both men through their highs and lows until we realise the distinct possibility that Leslie may not have his fairytale ending.Suit Yourself finished far too quickly for me and whilst I am intrigued to see who the subject of the next Men in London novel will be – my money is on Frankie or Maxwell – I know I will revisit Leslie’s story again. Suit Yourself is another treasure by Susan Mac Nicol and if you haven’t read any of her books yet, you’re missing out!

    *ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest reviewThis is the third book in the Men of London and although each could be read as a standalone I do think it best to read the first two books – Love You Senseless and Sight and Sinners.Leslie is the ex housemate of Eddie and Taylor who are the main characters of the first books. He works at a fashion house and is a lovable cutie who has been hurt too much in the past and is now looking for his one and only. When he is ordered by his boss Laverne, to deliver a suit, he has no idea it would lead him to his future and a hot ex-porn star he used to lust after – Nicky Starr!Oliver is now living a life of a recluse after a serious motorbike accident left him scarred and broken. His past as famous Nicky Starr is all but a distant memory but he still gets recognised but doesn’t want people to see who he is now hence his new life of loneliness in his big house.Gradually Leslie infiltrates himself into Oliver’s life and starts the slow process of bringing him back into the light and also into his bed!This was a slow growing storyline but a pleasant and sweet romance. So if you love your reads to include ex porn stars, men in heels and corsets, then this is one not to miss! 3.5 - 4 stars.

    I've loved Leslie from book 1 and couldn't wait to get his story. And boy did he get his. His awkward rambling when he first met Oliver were both painful and hilarious. Poor thing. Basically a really sweet, hot romance with Oliver being a douche for a section but making up for it...kinda. Loved that Draven & Taylor and Giddeon & Eddie all had a decent amount of page time. Wonder who will be next. Possibly Maxwell? I hope so. Great series.

    5 Sexy StarsSuits are so sexy on a man. Leslie wears them with pride, he knows how to dress. Working in the fashion industry, he always dresses to impress. Leslie is a blast, with such a great personality. I knew from the very first book of Men Of London that I wanted to read Leslie's story and Author Susan Mac Nicol did not disappoint me. Imagine walking along the street and seeing a man wearing a very expensive suit, whilst checking out said man you notice he is wearing heels. WOW!! Now not every man could pull this off with such finesse and sophistication like Leslie, I believe he could wear a black bag and make it look good. He has so much style and walks with confidence. He is my hero and that is really because he never shuts up. Always getting carried away, no real filter from brain to mouth but that's what makes us love him so much. Leslie is now living on his own since his room mates have found their soul mates. He is happy for Eddie and Taylor finding true love but sometimes feels left out. Leslie deserves to be happy like them, they tell him often enough. Leslie longs to be loved and have what his two best friends have, that look in their partners eyes screams out love and admiration.Leslie will have you laughing out loud while reading his story. The man has the funniest way of saying things.While at work Leslie is sent on an errand, he has to deliver a suit to a client named Oliver Brown. He is not looking forward to this little outing, he believes that along with the look of the house and a name like Oliver Brown the man buying the suit has to be old. Classic example of never judge a book by its cover.Once he eventually gets into the client's house to have some paper work signed, he can not believe his eyes and in true Leslie style the mouth opens forgetting where he is. Oliver seems to like the presence of Leslie, but is so guarded, its hard to know what will happen.When Leslie recognises the man named Oliver to be non other than former porn star Nicky Starr he loses it completely as he was his hero.Oliver was indeed a very famous porn star but has hidden himself away from the public eye for many years now. He has no social life to speak of, only one close friend called Katie and an occasional hook with a man named Maxwell. Not really the most exciting life but one that he has chosen for himself. Oliver is mesmerised by Leslie but is scared of what it all means for him. Luckily for him Leslie never gives up on a mission. They become friends, having coffee together and arranging to have dinner.Leslie is on cloud nine and Oliver is sitting right beside him but, isn't there always a but, Oliver lets his past insecurities to creep in and ruin things for himself and Leslie. This story is not only about the famous porn star Nicky Starr, who by the way happens to be mega hot nor by a sexy heel wearing Leslie Scott, its about love. The greatest kind of love, loving you no matter how you look like on the outside, there is still someone out there that will love you for you. Someone that will realise what you have to give. Its always a risk to give your heart to someone but isn't it better to have loved and lost than never love or feel loved. Without love life could be a very lonely existence. Leslie and Oliver were never meant to be on their own. True love will always find a way

    REVIEWED FOR PRISM BOOK ALLIANCE4.5 StarsI have been a huge fan of Leslie throughout this series and was very happy to see him getting his own story.Leslie has been left behind as his two former housemates have found the loves of their lives and moved out and moved on. Leslie craves for the same but is the first to admit that he is high maintenance and most men leave the next morning. He is often outrageous, totally over the top and not prepared to change for anyone. It is going to take a special man to take on Leslie with his quirky character and high heels.Oliver Brown used to be a model and porn star and was adored by his fans but the life he lives now is a million miles away from his party boy persona. “The accident” took everything away from him and although he has moved on and healed a lot of the damage is still very raw. The way he sees himself now is the catalyst for his depression, it’s like a vicious cycle that keeps him hiding. His one pleasure in life is new suits. He used to wear them back in his party days and is a frequent customer of the Debussy clothes line.When Leslie is tasked with delivering Oliver’s latest suit to his home there are shocks all round. Oliver is left almost terrified of this flamboyant man on his doorstep who recognises him from his previous life. Leslie can’t believe the man in front of him has starred in so many of his private fantasies. In usual Leslie style their first meeting is awkward as his mouth filter is non-existent but his straight forward talk and foot in mouth type of conversation maybe just what Oliver needs.It’s quite a sad story as Oliver learns to trust Leslie with his secrets but for each one he spills he seems to become a little stronger and confident, at the same time a ghost reappears from the past and sets his progress back.One thing that isn’t difficult for this pair is the sex – it is off the charts and includes the use of heels and corsets. For all his previous faux pas comments Leslie proves he can be very sensitive when it comes to issues that Oliver has about his body, he was both gentle and loving.Great third book in the series which includes glimpses into the lives of all our favourite characters.

    *** 3,5 beautiful inside-out stars ***This was a nice read. Straightforward and kinda predictable. I've read book 1 through 3 back to back now, and they all follow the same recipe for better and for worse. I liked reading about Leslie getting his HEA, but at the same time his story faced the same issues as Eddie/Gideon in #1 and Taylor/Draven in #2. The characters are different and the setting is different, but they follow the same recipe and go through the same process getting to their HEA, so it was a bit rinse and repeat seeing the series as a whole. That doesn't mean I didn't like the book! Leslie is a flamboyant firecracker with lots of backbone and a mouth that runs away from him sometimes. He meets Oliver, an ex-porn star who ended his career after his motorcycle accident with left him scarred both emotionally and physically. He's been playing hermit these last two years until Leslie barrels into his life bringing lots of color with him. There was the usual 70% angst part, but it turned out all right, didn't it? By the way, I love reading English expressions and sentences. A nice difference from reading American all the time."He's a prick/tosser/twat""arsehole""Bloody noisy gits, the lot of them""Bloody handsy bastard, wasn't he?"-----------------------"You taste sweet. How come?" [as in literally..]Leslie chuckled. "I read this article that says incorporateing fruit into your diet makes a difference. I tried eating pineapple and berries this week. Obviously, it worked." He waggled his eyebrows (...) Maybe we should try different flavours, see it it's true? I could eat curry all week, then seafood and maybe you'll be able to taste the difference."Oliver grimaced. "I'll skip the seafood and curry thanks. I rather like fruity Leslie."Leslie laughed loudly. "Oh, I'm fruity all right. Don't you know that yet?"-----------------------

    Had high hopes for this as I loved Taylor's story so much and was really looking forward to Leslie's - he was such a great character in the other books. Unfortunately this fell flat for me, it all start off well but I felt there needed to be a little more passion between Leslie and Oliver, more dates described rather than just mentioned and more interaction with other characters - Frankie the sweet builder who flirted with Leslie and Laverne who owned the fashion house Leslie worked for. I don't know perhaps I'm being picky but this had so much potential especially with Oliver's porn background and shitty ex boyfriend (was also hoping for more for a fierce confrontation with said ex BF), not to mention how generally fabulous Leslie was!Overall a decent book, just not great :)

    I knew going into Suit Yourself that it was going to push me a little outside my comfort zone; Leslie is essentially the epitome of a drama queen, always over the top and drawing attention with his clothing, words and actions, but let's face it- he loves it and is unapologetic about it. That type of character is not always for me, but I figured sticking with the tried and true can boring so I would go for it. And Ms. Mac Nicol provided a wonderful story in return for taking the leap!Leslie has been watching his friends pairing off and he is feeling decidedly lonely as the fifth wheel in their outings. He desperately wants to find love and a real relationship himself, but he knows that his personality and persona can be a bit too overwhelming for many people, having found himself on the receiving end of harsh statements and treatment for it in the past by former lovers. When his boss commandeers him to make a special delivery on his day off, he has no idea what awaits him in the nondescript home at the end of the pathway when he arrives.Oliver has been hiding out from the world for the past two years after a drug and alcohol fueled decision to get on a motorbike turned his world upside down. Scarred and shunned by those who claimed to care about him, he only leaves the house when absolutely necessary - or when his best friend Katie harangues him into leaving - and always takes great pains to hide his scars. Fashionable new suits are still a weakness he allows himself to indulge, and although he is taken aback by the whirlwind that is Leslie Tiberius Scott when he shows up to deliver the new suit, Oliver finds himself intrigued by another human being for the first time in a long time. He has fallen into a pattern of pushing people away since his accident, operating under the assumption that if he hurts them first, they won't have a chance to hurt him. Leslie is not going to be put off so easily though. His persistence is unparalleled and his tendency to let his mouth run away with itself both astonishes and amuses Oliver.There are plenty of ups and downs as they get to know each other ranging from bumps in the road to big ol' sinkholes in the form of self doubt, self pity and ugly verbal attacks from former acquaintances, but slowly the two men build a relationship. Eddie, Gideon, Taylor and Draven are interwoven throughout the story and act as Leslie's support system along with newer friends in the form of Leslie's boss Laverne, construction worker Frankie and even Oliver's best friend Katie. Seeing Leslie as more than the flamboyant exterior and watching Oliver work through the pain of betrayal and self imposed loneliness to learn to really live again makes Suit Yourself an entertaining, emotional and overall great read that I am glad I took a chance on.

    I was looking forward to sitting and reading suit yourself, and I was not disappointed at all. It had me from the first page and kept me there till the end. Oliver and Leslie are such a breath of fresh air. True to life in all its ups and downs.The story is woven around the relationship that builds between two very different men. Leslie is like taking a sip of double shot espresso , he leaves you bouncing and buzzing the minute you step into his life. He is totally adorable . If you like a slightly feminine , ok totally over the top heel wearing wrist slapping twink he is the whole deal. He makes you smile and think that life can actually be that good. Leslie works for a very stylish of course fashion house and it is on one of his deliverys he meets the illusive Oliver Brown. Oliver is the scarred inside and out ex porn star trying to live life in obscurity but craving love and acceptance. he battles demons and comes across brash and sharp. He is definatly tho the sweet treat that is meant to be beside the perky cup of espresso. they make a delicious combination.Leslie and oliver learn about each other slowely but oh so beautifully.we are swept up into their budding relationship and pulled into their emotions . The story is real life, totally believable and will have you smiling .laughing and crying all at once. Susan macnicol has done an amazing job to bring two beautiful men together and weave them into the readers hearts.I would recommend whole heartedly giving suit yourself a go,You wont be disappointed, only disappointment is that it had to end.five stars all the way....

    **I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.**3.5 StarsSuit Yourself revolves around Leslie and his quest for love. When Eddie and Taylor move out leaving him alone, Leslie finds he doesn't like be alone. He agrees to take a suit delivery on short notice. He's never seen the owner of the suit but is pleasantly surprised when he finds out it's a porn star he is quite fond of. Oliver Brown, a.k.a Nicky Starr, was once one of the top booking porn stars in the industry. When one bad decision on one fateful night changes his life forever, he becomes a recluse not leaving the house much except for a few "comfortable" places. When Leslie comes bouncing into his life, Oliver is taken off guard. Oliver has to learn to forget the past and the bad to move on, but can he when he thinks he doesn't deserve happiness? I thoroughly enjoyed this series. I was drawn in and couldn't wait to see if the boys all got their HEA's.

    i have been waiting for leslie's story forever it seems like. i love everything about him! honest, brash, over the top and completely unapologetic for it and that makes him completely loveable in every way. add in the fact that he's completely beautiful physically with his black hair, blue eyes and model attire and he's just perfect. he is a bit insecure because he hasn't found the right man yet and is feeling lonely and vulnerable. he has plenty of attention but wants what his friends have. oliver is a bit of a mess. he has put his entire worth in his appearance and now that he has scars he feels and thinks he's worthless. his ex is a complete sh!t that has reinforced his feeling worthless. he is beautiful inside and out and i love how he is with leslie. he is the perfect mate for him as he doesn't want to change leslie and likes him just the way he is. they are adorable together if they can just figure out how to get it together.i loved seeing the boys from the first 2 books! and it seems we have potential for another story (maybe, please!). this book was everything i expected and i loved it all!

    A Sexy Flamboyant LOL read! This is the third book in the series, but can be read as a standalone, but I feel that the reader will have a more enjoyable experience if the first two books are read first. That being said I loved this story. Leslie and Oliver are just perfect for each other. I just love how Leslie is such a drama queen in every sense of the word. He has such flair, and loves to flaunt it. He is so bubbly and refreshing, and a real sweetheart. He wants to find his one true love. Sexy Oliver is actually an ex-porn star, one who Leslie has been listing after for ever. Then Leslie has to deliver a very expensive suit, to guess who? Unfortunately Oliver has been pretty much a recluse for the past two years after a drug induced and drunken motorcycle accident, and the harsh reality of who were and were not his real friends. Oliver's go to now is to be suspicious of everyone and push people away but Leslie is not so easily deterred and I won't say anymore. I don't want to leave any spoilers but suffice it to say this is a terrific read. Can't wait to read more from this author. I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
