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 br

“Crushed with love?”
“Crushed with love.”
“Sounds badass,” I smirk and he chuckles, pulling me into him for a kiss.
“Sounds perfect.”

She did it again. Amy Daws and her London Lovers are fastly becoming some of my favourite reads. Emotion, humour, beautiful love stories and London. What's not to like?

London Bound is the third book in the London Lovers series and tells the story of Leslie and Theo. It can be read as a standalone, but to really appreciate all the character

“Leslie, don’t you know anything, I’ll never run from you. I’ll fight for you….forever.”

This was our first book by Amy Daws and after being swathed in the humour, warmth and fun of her characters, ‘tits’ fair to say, we’ll be checking out more from this witty, talented author!

London Bound was a mixture of humour, painful pasts and beneath the romance, at the heart of the story was a wonderfully threaded theme of true friendships that stand the test of time.

My favorite things about this book:

1. The heroine, Leslie. She is absolutely hilarious. She's snarky and witty but she is also sweet and kind.

2. Frank - Leslie's friend. I really hope he gets his own story because I loved him. Every girl should have a friend like Frank.

3. Theo. Wow. What a wonderful hero. He loves so completely and has such a good heart. I adored him. I love a hero who is willing to work for what he wants, who will really fight to get the woman he loves and Theo is all of that

I want this beautiful house in London to be real. I want to open that purple door and I want to live there with Frank, Leslie, Finley, Julie, Mitch, and Brody. I want this world I created to actually exist so I can visit and make fun of the ridiculous outfits Frank wears! I have completely fallen in love with my London Lovers and am so proud of sharing Leslie and Theo's story in London Bound. It may just be a series stealer. :)

Review by Allison East

London Bound is my third Amy Daws book and I really enjoyed it. This was a story about friendships that last a life time. And I love that!! It can definitely be read as a standalone but I feel like reading the first two books can be helpful in understanding all the characters.

This is the story of Theo and Leslie. Of course all characters in books can be a bit frustrating- but Leslie kept rejecting Theo and that hurt him, and me! I was really rooting for Theo, and he kept at

Yay! New narrator! I am usually not so in your face about a narrator but I started on book 4 and 5 and the narrators blew me away they were sooo great. I loved this narrator.

Also loved this book, not once did I roll my eyes. Even when Leslie was talking with Fin. I just can’t connect with Fin, it’s just me I have come to terms Fin and I can no longer be friend’s lmao. It’s ok she has Leslie so don’t feel bad for Finny.

London Bound was incredible! And can I just add that everyone needs a friend like Frank! <3 His quirky and feisty personality makes this book hilarious! Leslie and Theo were completely amazing! They are both hiding from their pasts but Theo is relentless in his advances towards Leslie. She learns he is not going away and is forced to face her true feelings for him. Finn and Brody are such great understanding friends and Leslie is lucky to have them by her side while she decides if it's time t ...more

******************** Reviewed for Our Kindle Konfessions ************************

This book had everything I needed, wanted, and craved, a 5 star read. It's has a sexy alpha male who says it as it is, who made my lady parts tingle. A heroine unlike no other I'd ever read before - Lesley is unique, loyal, funny and completely cray cray. Frank, the gay best friend and self confess pervert whose antics had me snorting in laughter. It has a story that took me from laughing out loud, to jaw dropping

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.*

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the London Lovers series by Amy Daws and Leslie is one of my favorite characters. I am really glad that she got a book to tell her story. She is a spitfire of a gal that speaks her mind, which is probably why she has a little bit of trouble in the boyfriend department. Despite her seemingly outgoing personality, she is a little jaded and closed when it comes to relationships. She's got a rocky past and she's n

“He says my name like he’s testing it out to see how it feels on his lips. His voice is smooth but deep. A timbre that reaches me everywhere it shouldn’t.”

This book is by far my favorite in the series. Just when I thought it couldn't get hotter than walks sexy alpha in some sexy glasses Theo! I felt the chemistry between Leslie & Theo instantly. Leslie isn't your typical book heroine all posh and perfect. She's real, boisterous, has a foul mouth, snorts when she laughs. I kind of love her! My biggest wish was that she didn't fight Theo so damn much at he beginning. Uh hello girl...he's hot snatch that sh** up! :) the suspense in thi ...more

That amazing house with Frank, Leslie, Finley, Julie, Mitch, and Brody... can I just say that I want to move in!! Can it be real please!!??

Two people caught in the darkness and held hostage by their secrets. Leslie and Theo are both damaged by their past and they're desperately trying to survive when they meet by chance. Amy Daws skillfully leads her reader through the maze towards the light of love.

Theo is a manly man no doubt about that - but it's a nice mix-up to see the leading man be the one to carry his heart on the sleeve and be all about feelings rather than the leading lady. That doesn't make him less brooding, but rather

LONDON BOUND is the third novel in the London Lovers series in which could be read as a standalone novel. In LONDON BOUND, Leslie Lincoln is an oddball red headed American girl who suffered an awkward moment with a hot as hell British man on the dance floor name – Theo.

Although I didn’t run into any instances of uncontrollable laughter or tear shedding, that doesn’t mean this book didn’t have any emotion to it. The presence of Leslie’s friend Frank guarantees numerous chuckles, and the fact that the book is in this series at all means there will be some kind of depressing aspect involved. The sad parts of this novel relate to the somber familial pasts of both Leslie and Theo, which they desperately try to keep secret from one another.

This was my first book by Amy Daws, although this book is part of a series it can be read as a stand alone.


London Bound is a great love story it has its own special blend of boundless love and heartbreaking angst. I was captivated by the intense chemistry between these two characters Leslie and Theo are so passionate it’s difficult to not get hypnotized by such attraction.

***4.5 STARS***

If there is one aspect that I can describe about Amy Daws writing is her ability to create vivid detail. This includes everything from the characters to the setting. Her words are artistic in that you can visualize the scene Amy is creating. It is easy to feel like you are present in her book. Readers can feel the beat of the music, the sway of the dancing, and the smells the every city contains. That is a huge reason why I

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

A must read! Ms. Daws continue to entertain us in this next edition in the London Lovers series! Get to know more about Leslie and Theo's touching read. Don't forget the witty humor between Leslie, Frank, Finley and their roommates that will also have you LOL from time to time in this story. Mostly though it is an emotional read about Leslie and Leo's intense pasts with all its ups and downs and secrets that each are keeping. Their heated love for one another wil

This was my first Amy Daws book, and I can say with absolute certainty, it won't be my last. I've already snagged up the first two books in the series.

First and foremost, I have to say I adored Leslie. She was sassy, and snarky and downright funny. She's loud and proud and she really had a wonderful personality that just made this book. That's not to say Theo was sort of dark and broody at times, but also Prime Hot Alpha material.

The chemistry between Theo and Leslie practically sizzles on the

I am already a firm and fast fan of Ms Daws and her London Lovers series, so you can safely say i had high expectations for this novel...did it live up to utterly SMASHED them! In my opinion, this is by far the best thing that i've ever had the pleasure of reading from Amy.

Leslie's story has everything! Its shockingly sad, deals with some seriously sensual themes, Moments of absolute hilarity (of course! including one particular moment on a particular gentlemans thigh!!!

This fantastically written book has every possible emotion squeezed in there. There is some proper laugh out loud, holding you sides hilarious moments as well as some 'i need a whole box of tissues and a bottle of

I have fallen in love with the characters in the London Lovers series over the past year, so each time a new story comes out, I am excited to read it.

And London Bound was no exception

London Bound starts up right where A Broken Us finished, but you could read it without reading the previous books.

We met Leslie, Finley's best friend in the past books in the series, and now we get her story.

Lez has always been the one in the friendship that was a bit out there, did

I was lucky enough to be part of the beta crew for Daws, for London Bound. I have absolutely loved every book in the London Lovers series. I thought they were all brilliant, but I wasn’t prepared for how perfectly addicting London Bound would be. I am certain it is the best book Daws has written yet.

Lez’s story is not only addicting, it is packed with a brilliant blend of romance, steamy action and tearful moments. I loved reading as she opened up, grew and learned to love again. Daws wrote her

Alright, so where do I start? Okay, I don't know about the rest of you lovely readers, but I absolutely love Leslie. Don't get me wrong, I adore Finley and have a lot in common with her, but Leslie is my spirit animal. And I was so excited when Amy told me she'd be writing Leslie's story.
This book picks up pretty much right where Broken Us left off, but from Leslie's point of view. The first couple chapters jump

Loved the storyline. Two people with haunting pasts, one American, one British. Beautifully written, funny, angsty and emotional. Loved all the characters, especially Leslie and Theo (a true sexy alpha male not afraid to portray his feelings and go for what he wants). Leslie has a troubled past and won't open up to anyone, she has trust issues and is hell bent on putting herself down, not willing to bare her soul. Theo knows that Leslie is the one for him as soon as he lays eyes in her in a Lond ...more

This book has left me with one primary thought! EVERYONE needs a friend like FRANK! He is hilarious, caring and down right necessary!

After getting past the recap of things that happened in the previous book, and how Leslie felt at certain times the real story begins. At this point I felt as though I had been picked up by the scruff of my neck by a sprinter and flew through the book to the finishing line! I ho
