Publisher's Summary

In the sordid streets of Victorian London, unwanted desire flares between two bitter enemies brought together by a deadly secret.

Crusading journalist Nathaniel Roy is determined to expose spiritualists who exploit the grief of bereaved and vulnerable people. First on his list is the so-called Seer of London, Justin Lazarus. Nathaniel expects him to be a cheap, heartless fraud. He doesn't expect to meet a man with a sinful smile and the eyes of a fallen angel - or that a shameless swindler will spark his desires for the first time in years.

Justin feels no remorse for the lies he spins during his séances. His gullible clients simply bore him. Hostile, disbelieving, utterly irresistible Nathaniel is a fascinating challenge. And as their battle of wills and wits heats up, Justin finds he can't stop thinking about the man who's determined to ruin him.

But Justin and Nathaniel are linked by more than their fast-growing obsession with one another. They are both caught up in an aristocratic family's secrets, and Justin holds information that could be lethal. As killers, fanatics, and fog close in, Nathaniel is the only man Justin can trust - and, perhaps, the only man he could love.

    "Fantastic!"

    I’m loving this series! I’m sure why it took me so long to pick up the first book, since I had it on my Kindle app since it came out. Well, the lovely first book led me to immediately pick up this second novel in the series.

    This second one had a very different feel than the first. Whereas An Unseen Attraction felt purposefully slow and measured like a slow drive through a lovely country lane, this one felt more like crossing an intersection at rush hour.

    Nathaniel, the journalist who we briefly met in the previous book, is on a story seeking to defraud spiritualists and mediums. At his first seance he meets Lazarus, the Seer of London. Antagonistic does not even describe Nathaniel’s feelings towards Lazarus. But as much as he hates him, he’s the first man he’s felt attracted to since the death of his partner six years prior. Nathaniel is a good man; Lazarus is a liar.

    Both however, get entangled in the tangled case of the missing earl discovered in the first book. Together, they escape attempts on their lives. No spoilers, the earl is found, but don’t expect him to be happy about it.

    What I liked about this book was how the MCs antagonistic relationship served them in the bedroom. It made for a couple of very hot scenes. Lazarus had a huge arc in this book, and it didn’t feel trite, or misbegotten...how can you give a man a conscience in a matter of weeks when he’s never employed it? KJ Charles did a great job in opening him up.

    And lastly, I love how the thick and greasy London fog is a character in this book. It’s almost tangible and affects the characters’ decisions and actions as much as another person would. Although the thought that fog could coat you in foul grease is beyond disturbing!

    Great narration, although sometimes I had difficulty in distinguishing who was speaking.

    I’m looking forward to the next book and hoping the murders is found at last. I have NO clue who it could be.

    "Great Read."

    Loved this book. It was a very sweet love story wrapped in a violent mystery. This story is well written and the narrator does a fantastic job.

    "I Need Book 3 Now!"

    Audio book review. Narrator: Matthew Lloyd Davies

    I am loving this series very much. I like how the second book is new and refreshing, yet ties into the first book with having some of the same characters.

    The two main characters come together in a believable way, too - none of that 'falling in love at first sight' nonsense that so many m/m romance books use.

    Can't wait for book 3 to be available as an audio book!

    "Really fantastic mystery and Victorian M/M romance"

    I was blown away by this captivating, exciting audiobook with expert narration. This is the second audiobook in the "Sins of the Cities" series, and it is best if you listen to them in order. There is an over-arching mystery and conspiracy that spans all three novels. Each book features a different pair of men who start a relationship and fall in love amidst lots of danger, including multiple murder attempts and sinister figures in the acrid London fog. It is a Victorian historical male/male romantic suspense.

    KJ Charles is such a talented author! This audiobook more than lived up to my expectations from Book 1. The richly detailed mystery story arc started in Book 1 picked up more speed and remained totally absorbing to me. We get the story in third person past perspective from a new pair of men, Nathaniel Roy and Justin Lazarus. (We met Nathaniel briefly in Book 1 as the friend of Clem.) The new pair of men had a very different relationship dynamic than the pair in the previous book. Nathaniel and Justin start out as enemies who are unwillingly attracted to each other. In the midst of their fiery attraction and working together to stay alive, they discover deep feelings for each other. I wasn't too keen on either one of these characters at first because Justin is a fraud and Nathaniel is overly judgemental, but I quickly grew to like them as I read this nuanced book.

    FYI, the sex scenes in this book are more explicit and steamy than in Books 1 and 3 in this trilogy, which were rather vanilla, sweet, and sensual. The sex scenes in this Book 2 might be too extreme for someone new to M/M romance, but these readers could still buy it and skip some pages because this is a fantastic series. I recommend this series to any fan of Victorian romance who is open to reading an M/M romance or to any fan of romantic suspense or to any fan of M/M romance.

    Matthew Lloyd Davies did so awesomely on this series so far that he has become my second favorite male narrator, following only Robert Petkoff on my list. Mr. Davies is such an expert on all of the different British accents in this book. He is great at male and female voices, pacing, action scenes, love scenes, and every aspect of the narration! I love this narrator, and I will search for more of his work.

    "K. J. Charles does it again"

    K.J. Charles is an auto buy for me ever since the Magpie series. That remains the favorite, but I definitely enjoyed the second installment of the Sins of the Cities series. While the first book in the series had a gentleness between the two main characters, in this book there is friction and sparks. Following an enemies to lovers storyline, the cynical psychic Justin rubs the crusading journalist Nathaniel the wrong way. But that doesn't stop them from wanting to rub each in other ways (sorry, easy joke). The initial attraction grows to something more when danger follows them in the fog polluted streets of Victorian London. One of my favorite things about K. J. Charles is that her characters are not without flaws and issues. Justin is, to me, the more interesting as someone who will do whatever he can to keep his precarious social position as his protection from poverty and the streets. Nathaniel struggles to put aside his self righteousness but does so once he sees Justin's reality is less privileged than his own. The sex scenes work well as does the eventual solid partnership they form together. The narrator does his usual great job of giving unique voices to each character. In a nutshell, a fun listen that is well worth a credit. The biggest problem I have is the wait until the final book coming out in October.
