The past has a way of shaping your future, and for Eco Warrior Mango Manning, if he can’t shake yesterday’s demons, there’s no hope of a tomorrow with London nightclub owner, Ryan Bishop.
Eco-warrior Mango Manning must shake the demons of his past to win back London nightclub owner Ryan Bishop, who is suddenly facing issues of his own.
WITH BOTH HANDS
Brawny, beautiful, complicated and sexy as hell, eco-warrior Mango Manning is everything performer and London nightclub owner Ryan Bishop wants in a life-partner. But Mango has been loving and leaving Ryan for the past two years, and Ryan’s had enough. That’s why he’s moving on. Ryan’s the monogamous type—which means now he’ll be alone at the worst possible time.
Mango Manning knows he’s screwed up and has commitment issues. That’s why he’s been so on-and-off with Ryan these past two years. He’d thought he found a safe haven, a place to hide from the losses of his past, but there are other demons you just can’t escape. Like Ryan’s health. If Mango is to put things right, he must man up and discover a way back into Club Delish and the heart of its owner. Only then can they look to the future together, come what may. True happiness will slip through their fingers...unless they both grab on and hold tight.

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
Hard Climate is one book you should read. No, not because of the cover which I know you're happily caressing if it's a paperback in your hands or happily gazing at it (if that's all you're doing) if an ebook. Thing is, Mango's happy trail is giving me the shivers and it's all good.
Back to the book...
Mango is one of those guys you want to dislike. He's supposedly not the commitment type and you'd like to hate him for treating Ryan the way he did. On the other hand, you also want not to like Ryan for putting up with a man like Mango. Why should he, you ask?
The answer is simple really: Ryan and Mango, they are meant for each other and even though the road to forever took a long while to go through, at the end of it, they settled and had their forever after taken care of. Happily and with a huge lot of grinning along the way.
The story of Ryan and Mango is a little bit different for a Men of London installment. For one thing, it is the lightest read of the bunch. And another, it is the one where the initial reaction is not to like the men involved. Fortunately, they quickly grow on you and in the end, you want them to get to that HEA fast. The read is light, I say again, but it is not free of perils and woes along the way. How the writer, wrote this was to make the reader crave they get the HEA in the most romantic way.
HC is another wonderful read from author Susan Mac Nicol, and by the end of the read, you are guaranteed to smile and maybe laugh a little bit for the fabulousness that is Ryan.
