My rating: 4 of 5 stars
London Bound is a delightful, deliriously funny, and sexy novel.
It’s one of those books you will re-read for those funny as hell lines and those extra-spicy scenes.
I loved the fact that the characters had a solid background behind them. That they had depth.
I also enjoyed how different it was. From Theo’s glasses to the ridiculous cleanse. Even their jobs were original. I am a sucker for originality, and this book had it in spades! London Bound has one of the most original and unique stories I’ve ever read, and I loved the book for it!
It’s a great read, but it could be really-really great.
The characters had solid backgrounds and tragic pasts. We delved into serious matters, like grief and abuse, but I felt like we focused more on Theo’s past and we didn’t give the attention Leslie’s past had. She has serious confidence issues due to her family, and it was painfully clear from the beginning and throughout the book. There were few scenes where she crumbled and emotions ran high. But I wanted more. I needed more depth, more attention not only to what happened to her, but also the consequences it had on her. Her confidence issues stem from somewhere, and I felt we just didn’t touch the core of her problems. Serious incidents leave an impact on us, and not just on our behavior toward others. It affects how we see ourselves. We didn’t touch that aspect. The book concentrated more on Theo’s past, and to be honest, it was little more tragic. And I loved how the author approached it. I loved Leslie’s responses. So I expected something similarly great to be applied to Leslie’s situation. And I didn’t see it.
Also, there were parts in the book that could be cut. Parts that didn’t contribute to the depth of the story. In my opinion, always. They were entertaining, but when something significant is missing entertaining parts come second.
However, London Bound is a pure delight. I laughed my ass off. It’s definitely one of the most amusing books I’ve ever read.
I will definitely re-read it. I actually re-read some of the best scenes, right before writing this review. I couldn’t help myself.
It combined seriousness with humor. Love with sexy scenes in a spectacular package.
It’s original. Sexy. Adorable. Funny. A must-read!
I certainly recommend this one!! I can’t wait to read more from this author. I have a good feeling about her!
London Bound receives 4.5 Gorgeous Stars!!!
