Blog Tour: London Bound by Amy Daws



Amy Daws
London Bound (London Lovers #3)

Release Date: May 14, 2015


Blurb:

***After falling in love with "us" in the first two installments of the London Lovers Series, now...it's Leslie's turn in this spicy series stand alone.***

When Leslie Lincoln, a spunky, red-headed American, suffers an awkward moment with an arousingly-sexy British man—she thinks her life can't get any more pathetic. 

She's done with men. 
She doesn't need them. 
She especially doesn't need their muscular thighs. 
No siree, she's going to forget all about the brooding, complicated, and seductive "Theo" who captivated her on the dance floor of a London nightclub. 

Keep telling yourself that, Lez..... 

Immersing herself into a new type of romantic cleanse, Leslie thinks she'll never lay eyes on Theo again. But somehow, he's managed to bulldoze his way back in—her cheetah-print onesie pajamas be damned. 

He wants more. 
She wants to run. 
But he can’t seem to let her go.

Both of them have a past—and neither want to share. 

How can love possibly survive in darkness?

Excerpt:

You are beautiful, Leslie.” He tucks a stray auburn lock behind my ear tenderly and moves my bangs off to the side, like he always does. “Your light, your smile, your playfulness.” I roll my eyes and look down, feeling horribly uncomfortable with all these compliments. This man is Superman, how does he even see me?
He crooks his finger under my chin forcing me to look him in the eyes. “I mean it. I never stopped chasing you because you are the light to my darkness. The one thing that just shines in my life. You make it all less horrible, Leslie. You…are worth every single millimeter I ran to catch you.” He swallows hard, glancing out the window briefly and then swings his gaze back to me, his expression turns urgent. “I said last night that it was all too much, that I was overwhelmed. I need you to know that I am overwhelmed—but only because I’ve been wanting to tell you something for a while now, but I didn’t want to scare you.” 


My Review:
London Bound is the third book in the London Lovers series and can be read as a stand alone. London Bound is Leslie Lincoln's story. 

Leslie is a spunky, humorous girl with an aversion to panties and a vibrator affectionately referred to as a hot dog. Content to be single, Leslie finds herself missing something in her life as she watches her best friend, Finley, marry. Frank, her gay male BFF, encourages her to try his seven day cleanse which features some pretty crazy things to do. All the while the cleanse keeps Theo, a man she met months prior in a club and had an embarrassing moment with, at the forefront of her mind. 

Theo never thought he could be happy again after the tragedy that rocked his world three years prior. Then he spotted Leslie in a club. Setting his sights on her, Theo was determined to win Leslie's heart. With so many rejections from Leslie, he begins to think he may be better off moving on... Until he hears about her seven day cleanse. Giving it one last try, Theo sets out to win Leslie's heart and heal his own broken one. 

London Bound was the first book that I read in this series and I am hooked. I loved Leslie's spunky personality and her humorous commentary. Leslie never failed to make me laugh. Theo was a nice, likeable character and I couldn't help but feel bad for him with the way Leslie kept pushing him away - or at least trying to. Besides Leslie, my favorite character was Frank. He has this thing about him that captures your attention and he's got quite the personality. I also really liked Hayden's character which may seem strange to some, but I truly felt for him and wished him the best. I would love to read his story some day. His character holds a lot of promise for personal growth. 

Besides the characters, I loved the plot and was surprised by the secrets of the past both Leslie and Theo were keeping. I never saw either of them coming. I also really enjoyed the setting and reading something that wasn't set in the U.S. for once. 

Amy Daws is a promising author and I look forward to reading more from her.

Becoming Us
London Lovers # 1



Blurb:

The dreaded friend-zone... The last place I ever want to be with college basketball God, Jake LaShae. I am losing my mind trying to figure out what this gorgeous and confident man wants from me. I need to break through his walls. What is it about me that makes him not go there? What am I lacking? When a mind-blowing betrayal knocks the wind out of me, and I think I can't feel any lower...Brody stumbles into my path-barefoot no less, and sexy as hell. His direct and mouth-watering swagger is a breath of fresh air. The feelings this man gives me are like nothing I've ever experienced. But Brody has a past. A past that makes it nearly impossible for him to trust me and let us become us in whatever capacity that may be. Just when Brody and I truly connect, just when I think that finding my soul-mate in college isn't a total joke, Jake comes back into my life...and messes things up...possibly for good.

A Broken Us
London Lovers # 2

Blurb:

The moment those words come out of the doctor’s mouth, I feel sick.

So sick.
The life I have dreamed of…obliterated.
And Brody. 
God, Brody.
How will he look at me?
How can he accept me?
He'll know what I hid from him.
He'll know everything.
It’s over. It’s completely over. I can't tell him "I love Us" anymore.
Even though I do.
Even though it will kill me.
I can't tell him anything. Everything is ruined. Pummeled. Broken.
I have to leave him. I have to give up us.
I know he'll come after me.
I just have to do something to make him not want to.

About Author


Amy Daws is a goof of epic proportions. She enjoys making dumb videos and laughing at herself...a lot. It gets awkward. She thinks she should have tried her hand at improv theater but figured she'd learn how life looks behind the lens of a camera first. 

She also thinks talking about herself in the third person isn't awkward at all. 

Amy lives in South Dakota with her husband, Kevin, and their miracle daughter, Lorelei. The long-awaited birth of Lorelei is what inspired Amy’s first book, Chasing Hope, and her passion for writing. 

Amy's contemporary romance books are a part of the The London Lovers Series and currently have two installments out with more to come. Her writing style is emotional and self-deprecating with awkward humor sprinkled in. Basically, if she makes you cry happy and sad tears...she's achieved her goal. Extra points if you have to blow your nose. 

Amy's inspiration for writing is and always will be her six precious angel babies and her daughter, Lorelei. On most nights, you can find Amy and her family dancing to Strawberry Shortcake’s theme song or stuffing themselves inside children’s-sized playhouses because there is nothing they wouldn’t do for their little miracle.
