It wasn't exactly like spunky, photography student Abbie Nartey ran away from her life - except, that she left under the cover of darkness and put 3,000 miles between her and her ex-boyfriend's betrayal. She went to London searching for her dream. She never expected to find love, or herself. Heir to his family's tech fortune, sexy Alexi Chase is looking for freedom - from his family and from his past. What he's not looking for is love. With secrets like his, he can't afford to let anyone get too close. But a chance rescue has him wondering if the price of keeping secrets is too high.
Will Alexi risk losing love to keep his past hidden? Will Abbie trust herself enough to love again? Or will their pasts keep them from accepting true love?
Note: This audiobook contains mature themes and is intended for audiences 18 and over.

I loved this story from start to finish. The performance was AWESOME and the story was BRILLIANT! The love story between Abby and Lex was beautiful! I like how the author took her time having them fall in love with each other. I love how she had Lex ask for permission to do things to Abby. Even something as small or as big as a kiss. I will definitely listen to this again and possibly purchase the actual book.
I recommend this audible to those who want to hear about a boy who fell in love with a girl who was unsure that she could trust someone again and that he could ever love someone at all!
Abibliophobia. I suffer from it and I'm sure many others on this site feel the same. I love to read, I love to listen even more.
Interracial Love of course. I also enjoyed the fact that it was in London. It just makes me as a reader hope in love, the places beyond my own vicinity.
When she and him first meets him of course. Oh no, I don't want to spoil anything. Actually I would have to say it's when she's at the party and she happens upon a certain couple. The emotion from both characters each dealing with their past in their own way. That part stuck out to me the most.
I have not listened to their performances, but I will make this note about them; when the woman does Alexi's voice, he seems so much more sensual and tender than when the man reads Alexi. I don't know if it's an accent thing, but I thought it was so much hotter when she read his parts. It's not a bad note, it just really stuck out to me. The other characters come alive when the both of them read. You'll see what I mean if you purchase it.
Good Credit. Can't wait to read about the other brother...
Hi My name is Rae and i love to read and also a very shy person.
IF I COULD SUM IT UP IT WOULD BE AWESOME!
Hearing London Bound book with the audio. I mean i was so surprise to hear a male narrator too. Will that was so amazing and very memorable for me.
No, this is the first i have heard both of them together and it was amazing to hear.
Did not cry , but i did laugh so hard in some parts in the book. In the end of the book i did cry at the very end..
Just take a chance with Nana books you will not be disappointed.
I enjoyed this story of strength love and resiliency of Abbie. This story started with a powerless Abbie and ended with a strong intelligent woman who made her own way in the world. I enjoyed the readers authentic accents and the English slang. It is clear the author has visited this area and not just read about London.
I cannot think of another love story with real transformation. There was not a page in thus book that was wasted the live was real. The hurt was real the growth was real. Unlike most romance novel I have encountered this was sincere and did not involve a rich man whisking her away from her problems instead Abbie grew and conquered them herself! Bravo!
The readers accents are wonderful. It actually reminded me if visiting over seas.
Yes and I hated having to stop.
I am looking forward to the second book and other books from Ms. Malone.
Traveling therapist listening to AUDIBLE books while driving to far areas. Also host/produce radio show on KGLP 91.7 on staying positive!!
Nana Malone has done it again. A bwwm love story set abroad. Sex scenes are lightly steamy NOT X rated. The story is sweet, interesting & action packed.. A wonderful story of two people falling in love that happen to be different skin colors. This story has diversity, funny situations. Bravo Bravo.. Yes this is worth a credit & money.
I rarely ever read contemporary romances, and I honestly don't know why. My go to answer is that they're plain...but if done right they can be the perfect break from all the crazy world building or insane social trappings of a paranormal world. London Bound is one such book.
Abbie, is a young woman now learning to be independent after leaving her abusive ex and following her dreams. Alexi, is a billionaire with a troubled past and a lot of reasons not to become emotional attached to anyone. Both are incredibly skittish when it comes to relationships, and their growing feelings prove slightly problematic. I liked the balance that Abbie and Alexi held, and even though most of their problems stemmed from the lack of communication, given the topics I can totally understand the lack of desire to put all onto the table. They have a undeniable chemistry and the instant attraction is offset by the fact that both need more time to think things out and see where they stand, and I really appreciated that because I was worried it might dip too close to insta-love. I love that it's not just Abbie who is learning to grow and stand for herself, but Alexi as well. She's learning to speak up for herself and take risks, risks that unnerve her, and he's learning to trust and open up about a past he'd sooner forget. While I will admit that portions of this were a bit obvious, even to someone who doesn't delve into pure romance often, it didn't detract from the overall enjoyment factor.
Kitty Bang and Graham Hastead both did an awesome job of the narration, and I really liked the switch in speaker when the point of view switched over. I think I'm definitely going to check out more books read by Kitty, because her range of accents and ability to play on those emotions without the text prompting her to really made this one stand out.
I love a romance that doesn't feel like total fluff and has a lot of ups and downs. I want it to have plenty of moment to tug at my heartstrings and make me laugh, I want heat but I also want depth and true emotion...and London Bound provides all of that! Definitely one to check out if you enjoy New Adult Romance!
The actors have TERRIBLE accents. Considering the story is set in the UK and Audible have a large UK audience it's ridiculous to use actors who can't do the UK voices. I had to return it, which is a shame because Nana writes good stories. The London and New Castle accents were just too distracting. Seriously awful narration.
