Before her, I was:

A possessive pain in the ass.

Who am I kidding? I still am.

Love wasn’t for me.
I’d come to terms with that a long time ago.

And then I met her. I was this close to freedom. But one look at her and I was caught in a web I could’t escape. One I didn’t want, to escape.

But then someone took her from me. Now they’ll find out just how far I’m

Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KindleFriendsForever

When last we visited Abby and Lex they were so confused about what they were, even I couldn't untangle the mess.

Abby as a character is highly relatable. She has a story you can get behind. You'll cheer with her and cry with her. She's one of those memorable people you can't not remember.

Lex and his brother are complicated. Mere pawns on a chessboard, in a game that started decades before they were even born. So many questions.

London Soul immediately picked up where London Royal left off which I was very happy about. But it also instantly started with the unexpected.

Nana Malone's books definitely know how to keep a reader guessing and ensure that I try never to assume I know what's going on too soon.

Lex is officially going to the top of my list of most intense leading men I've read by this author. But I loved the intensity.

I also loved that once again the final story and whole duet felt fresh and new. I enjoyed

As I read this book, I kept having this weird sense of deja vue. Then I remembered the Chase brothers had books already. London Bound and London Calling.

This book had a little angst, a bit of danger, some mystery, a good amount of suspense, and off the charts sexual tension. I really liked Abbie, Lex, Xander, and their back and forth banter. All of them were so damaged, I was surprised Abbie was the only one with a therapist.

I was also surprised about Easton. I really expected him to make a

The queen of the cliffhanger is back to tie up some well placed loose ends. Abbie and Lex gave emotions quite a beating with their turbulent freefall into love. London Royal was a chaotic start for two battered warriors searching for a place to call home. Full of shocking twists and exciting turns, London Soul continues to build on that heartstopping momentum. Malone keeps minds spinning with a conclusion that as thrilling as any high speed chance and as breathtakingly, haunting as the most ...more

This is book two in Lex and Abbie's story. You need to read book one, London Royal first. These two will really tug at your heartstrings as their story continues. It is so easy to get swept up into the story and become completely invested in this couple. The storyline grabs and holds your attention well with a complex blend of emotions, drama, twist, secrets, romance and steam. You really have to feel for this couple, they have so many obstacles to overcome and trials to survive on the road to a ...more

London Soul was a great conclusion to Abbie and Alexi story, they have come a long way from trying to see if what they have is real to fighting to be with one another. Both characters are fighting their own demons and they both go on this journey of becoming better people for the sake of their relationships.

London Soul had a little bit of everything we love about Nana's writing, witty comebacks, extreme sexual tension, crazy plot twist,

I already read this series when it was London Bound, Nana Malone just updated it to fit in with the Royals and Winston Isles crew. For me London Royal and London Soul was just a reminder of what I already read. The only thing that changed that I noticed was ending, which was exciting. If you have not read London Bound and London Calling then I highly recommend it. Alexi and Xander are a little removed from Winston Isles crew. Nana Malone gives you suspense and drama. I wanted Easton to cause ...more

Secrets, crazy, intrigue, and did I say crazy? London Soul is the conclusion of Abbie and Lex’s story and it is a wild ride! I loved it!
Valeen Robertson (Live Thru Books Blog)

Lex and Abbie go through so much in their conclusion. Secrets are exposed. Action rolls. And these two fall in love harder than ever. But it's not easy or pretty because among those secrets are forces that would do anything to keep Abbie and Lex apart. Will they ever make it through all their obstacles?

Wow, this part was intense! I loved Abbie and Lex together, reading as they fell so deeply in love. This royal world of the author's is not like any other royal saga I've ever read. Each

London Soul by Nana Malone was emotional and inspiring with her trademark sharp writing. The steam and sweetness run parallel with suspense and thrilling twists. Abbie and Lex will make you fall in love madly and instantly.

Royal romance is the trope of Nana Malone. She can write about the opulence and troubles of royal lives so easily and simply that they feel like people we know every day. London Soul proves it once again. Lex may be one of the closely related prince of Nomea but he is like

To be honest, the ending of book one ( London Royal ) had me in such a tizzy that it wasn't until I was...2/3, maybe? of the way through the second book in the duet that I remembered how that book started. Which ties in nicely with the ending of this one...kind of. Until suddenly you're in somebody else's head--not Lex or Abbie's--and then you're looking at a different kind of cliffhanger ending.

Why must you be so cruel, Nana Malone, why?

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

Before her I was rich, entitled, and a possessive pain in the butt. Who am I kidding? I still am. Love wasn't for me. I'd come to terms with that a long time ago. And then I met her. I was this close to freedom. But one look at her and I was caught in a web I couldn't escape. One I didn't want to escape. But then someone took her from em.

London Soul is the conclusion to Abbie & Lex's story, so I'm going to be very clear here, YOU MUST READ London Royal (Book 1) FIRST! The diabolically brilliant Nana Malone left us on quite the cliffy in Book 1, and because of that, I'm going to be cryptic with my review. Since this is the conclusion to Lex & Abbie's story, it felt like everything was bigger, so my emotions took quite the beating, as there was nothing easy about their journey, though when they met, you would think it ...more

Review is also here on 22 Nov:

Main characters: Abena Nartey, upcoming photography student, struggling to get away from her controlling family. Alexi Chase, her smitten paramour, and super rich royal, harbouring deep secrets.

Why you should read it: You may remember that cliffhanger at the end of London Royal? Well, the action picks up right from where book 1 left off. Abbie and Alexi go through the mill in this book – so many obstacles, and

Alexi and Abbi’s part 2

As always for the second book in these duets, they pick up exactly where book one finished, so the story hit the ground running from the cliff-hanger end of London Royal.

Normally my review process includes note taking in order to put my thought processes in place, but Nana Malone had me all kinds of excited because there were so many secrets and undercurrents, toxic relationships and red herrings, and, plenty of sexy romance going on, that I absolutely raced through this

4.5 Stars! This book is the conclusion to London Royal about Alexi, who may become a Prince and his love at first sight, Abbi. There was a lot going on in the first book and in book two there is even more as we get more of the back Alexi and Abbi's back stories. Lex though is still keeping secrets from Abbi that could keep them apart. Abbi has trust issues so when she finds out what Lex is hiding will she walk away? Nana Malone does a good job of dealing with current issues in a way that helps ...more

I received an Advanced Reader Copy from the publisher and am voluntarily reviewing it. If you recall, Part 1 of this series ended with a bang and a cliffhanger. Don’t fret, Abbie has turned into a fierce fighter. She is strong and refuses to let anyone take her down Easton Way again. Alexi has turned into a possessive caveman when it comes to Abbie. Abbie has to figure out the difference in the anger that radiates off of Alexi when he thinks that she is in danger.

This book has a lot going on

London soul is a suspenseful, moving, and sexy conclusion to the London Royal duet. Alexi and Abbie are still struggling with the secrets they hold close. Those secrets bring out those from the shadows who have their own agendas and could hurt them both. As Alexi and Abbie spend more time together, they can no longer deny their growing feelings. But their pasts may destroy them before they can reveal their truths. I loved how strong Abbie was, refusing to be a victim, and determined to make it ...more
***3.5 stars***
London Soul is Book #2 in the London Royal Duet and picks right up where it ended in the jaw-dropping cliffhanger. It is necessary to read Book #1, London Royal first in order to understand this book.

Deceit, secrets, action, royals, family angst, passion, and heartbreak. Nana Malone takes us on a roller coaster ride with Alexi (aka Lexi) and Abena (aka Abbie). Secrets, lies, and both of their pasts threaten their chance at a future together. There is a wonderful cast of characters

Royal Secrets... Royal Soul...

Never a bad ending coming from Nana Malone. While I hate cliffhangers as much as the next person, I can't help but love the build up to the HEA!

Lex & Abbie have to continue to work through the secrets that are affecting their lives and eventually affecting their happiness. They have to work on bringing their true lives/selves to the forefront and figuring out what part of their lives is worth the sacrifice.

This is the second book in the London Royal Duet series and the conclusion of Alexei and Abbie’s story. It is not a standalone. These two have been through so much as their relationship evolved with obstacles at every turn. Abbie is still dealing with her abusive and possessive ex who has remained a threat to her and Alexei is harboring some major secrets from his past. You know what they say about the best intentions…Are the feelings that they have for each other strong enough for them

Abbie shared her past with Lexi, but Lexi hasn’t shared his with her. When his secrets were revealed to the world, Abbie ran away and it took a lot for him to convince her to give him another chance. Will she stay with him when she finds out about his past, or will she run away for good?

London Soul picks up right where London Royal ends. It’s full of unexpected twists, turns and steamy scenes; a satisfying conclusion to Abbie and Lexi’s tale, and an exciting beginning of Imani and Xander’s!

London Soul is the stunning conclusion to Abbie and Alexei’s story! In perfect Nana Malone style there is a perfect amount of danger, intrigue and unexpected surprises that will keep you on the edge of your seat!
Abbie and Alexei have had so many challenges in their growing relationship and obstacles preventing them from reaching their happily ever after. Abbie’s ex was always possessive and remained a threat. Alexei was keeping so many secrets about who he was and his past from her. Even though

London Soul is a great second book to the London Royal Series and for Alexi and Abbie it very much leaves you teetering on the edge of wanting to know will-they-won't-they and you're constantly wanting them to be a couple until something goes dramatically wrong and it's mostly Lex who's keeping secrets that Abbie understandably struggles with and things seem to be unravelling by the day.

I felt like I was torn between Team Abbie or Team Lex it left me completely

London Soul by Nana Malone. This is book 2 of Alexis and Abena's story. Lets just say that this book did not disappoint. It kept me intrigued from beginning to end. I had forgotten how much these two were in love but Nana made sure that you can feel it on every page. I love how Alexi was able to be his self with Abbie. I love how she was able to finally see that he was not her ex and no matter what went down that they could get through it all. These two are one on my favorite couples and when ...more

Nana's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin. It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
