London Bound (A Heart of the City romance Book 3) by [Duggan, C.J.]

Genre:  Romance,

I read Paris Lights just before requesting this – it was on KU and I really enjoyed it. This book links slightly with that, we met Kate briefly in book one, and as I haven’t yet read book two there may be more link ups. Each are stand alone books though so no nasty cliff-hangers!!

Kate’s a lovely girl but I kept wanting to say to her “stand up to Nana Joy”. If ever a woman was misnamed that’s her…Still, I guess Kate was afraid of being sent back, not living out her dream. The way she is though she isn’t doing it either…but bullying is pervasive, it has a build up effect so that the person being bullied gets more scared, loses more of their character and becomes intimidated easily. That was clearly happening to Kate.
She gets to go out slowly, little increments of freedon aided by carer Vera, who’s a real gem
.
Jack seems very arrogant when we first meet him, but slowly we meet the real person and when we find out more about him his first reactions were understandable. I really liked him, a true gentleman. They get closer, balcony meetings leading to some steamy encounters and things heat up.
Kate’s discovery about the secret room in Nana Joys house leads to her moving on with her new blog, starting at last some of the things she’d hoped to do when coming to London.
Then the blog picks up, the heat between her and Jack picks up, what she doesn’t realise is that secrets are also picking up and when all is revealed she’s distraught.

I love a bit of drama, and that was perfect for me but…its over far too soon. I need to wallow a bit in heartbreak, and though Kate was gutted she soon got over it. Small crit but the difference between a four and a five for me.
I found the same thing with Paris Lights, a great read but the drama soon over. Others want their stories that way though, its the old horses for courses thing where you simply can’t please everyone one.

Its a fun read, with some great humour tucked in, fabulous clothes, and a snapshot of the London Experience for Kate.

Stars: Four, an enjoyable read, with realistic characters and scenes.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
