✪ London Bound (Heart Of The City #3) ✪ CJ Duggan ✪


Series: The Heart of the City
Author: C.J. Duggan
Publisher: Hachette
Genre: Contemporary New Adult
Cover Design: Keary Taylor

The third standalone novel in CJ Duggan's HEART OF THE CITY series - a very sassy, super sexy New Adult romance from the internationally bestselling author of the SUMMER and PARADISE series.

Like so many of her university friends, Kate Brown is London bound, but unlike her friends - who had the chance to enjoy the beer, sights and attractions of the UK - Kate is instead visiting her grandmother (who may or may not be the devil).

Wanting nothing more than to be a normal, independent twenty-something living it up in ol' London town, Kate finds herself a prisoner in her grandmother's Kensington terrace, daydreaming about the holiday that could have been. But when Kate is almost run over by posh,smirking playboy Jack Baker, it leaves her wondering if being out and about is such a good idea after all, especially when she catches herself laughing at his jokes.

One thing Kate knows for sure is that she has to avoid Jack at all costs. But with her balcony facing his, you can pretty much guarantee Kate's London adventure is going to be anything but boring . . .


ARC received for an honest review

It is always a bittersweet moment when a series comes to an end, but with the Heart Of The City series, Ms Duggan has certainly left the best till last.

Like the other leading ladies in the series, Kate is an Australian living and working abroad, experiencing life, and having a great old time... except she isn't.

Oh my goodness, I don't know what to think of Kate's nana, she is a bit of an old cow!

 Kate's saving grace is her hot as hades neighbour (who she kind of hates!)  Jack Baker.  He is all kinds of sex in a suit, and he drives her bonkers!

Oh Jack - what is there not to love about Jack? From the cocky grin to the smart ar$se attitude, I couldn't help but succumb to the Jack Baker Effect.

Laughs and tears, and a whole lot of sexual tension, Jack and Kate are just adorable and sweet and sexy ... OK, I admit, I just want to be Kate1

I have never been to London, but through Ms Duggan's words I got a great sense of the vibe of the place.  And have started saving my pennies to get over there and find my own Jack.

Ms Duggan drew me into the story through the easy flow of the story and her well paced writing.  I am not much of a NA reader (since I am an old fart), however she is one writer that I will always pick up her stories.

It has been wonderful to be taken around the world with this series, and I look forward to what Ms Duggan brings us next.
