    "LOVED IT!"

    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.

    "This is an authentic love story."
    What did you love best about London Bound?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of London Bound?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Graham Halstead and Kitty Bang ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Good Credit. Can't wait to read about the other brother...

    Audiobook Addict. It's all about the Listen. Mostly Romance, but I do branch out a bit. Reviews are my honest opinions-popular or not.

    "Oh Yeah! This One is Goooood!"

    Nana Malone never disappoints, and this time, she weaves a lovely tale of how Abby left her abusive dirtbag boyfriend in the states and embarked on a journey to live her dreams on her own terms. Sexy Alexi enters the picture, and while they both try to avoid it, Dangit, they go and fall right in a big puddle of love. Past baggage, family dramas and a deep, dark secret all put a bit of drama into their relationship, but they learn to trust each other and get through to the good stuff. Awesome supporting characters of friends and family and authentic, comical banter make this a fantastic listen. I do hope there is a Chase Brothers 2 getting ready to be released so I can find out how Lexi's manslut brother, the very hot and talented Zander, fares when he inevitably steps in his steaming pile of love.

    The dual narration team of Kitty Bang and Graham Halstead works well, and though both were very good, KB was just SO awesome with both male and female voices that I would have been perfectly happy with her doing both POVs all throughout the book. Loved this. Definitely one to listen to again. Cash-, credit- and Whispersynch-worthy. Get it, and you won't be sorry.

    I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an unbiased review. The number of stars I award in the 5-star rating system is based on where I believe this audiobook rates with other audiobooks of the same type, length and general feel-- not where it rates in comparison to all audiobooks of all time.

    Story
    "XOXO From London"
    What did you love best about London Bound?

    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.


    What other book might you compare London Bound to and why?

    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!


    What does Graham Halstead and Kitty Bang bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The readers accents are wonderful. It actually reminded me if visiting over seas.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and I hated having to stop.


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to the second book and other books from Ms. Malone.

    "Soo Good!"

    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!

    "Twisted Love Story"

    When I first started listening to this book my mind went to “Oh no another one of those.” But after continuing to listen the story took enough twists and turns that it kept me listening. Although I had to stop and come back to it. Therefore it took me three days to actually listen to the whole story. Abbie is in an abusive five year relationship and finally has the courage to get out. She runs not only from the apartment but from the country and lands in the class that she wanted to be in. She is a brilliant photographer and gets to train with one of the best.The first day of class the professor tells them he does not date his students so they will have to earn their degree the correct way. Her life just gets better from there. She almost gets hit by a mini cooper and is saved by none other than her professor’s brother.
    The two brothers clash when they both want Abbie. Yet Abbie is drawn to the one who saved her. The brothers are hiding a secret that could endanger both of them. Yet Alexie will risk it all for Abbie.
    A vindictive, dictatorial father, an abusive ex-boyfriend, a relationship that Alexie is in to protect one of his best friends, too much money, and several outsiders who contribute to the blow up and reconciliation of their relation all combine to create a pretty good story.

    Story
    "There is life after being disowned."
    Would you listen to London Bound again? Why?

    Maybe...Not sure? It was a good story and the narration was excellent.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting aspect was the relationship between Lex and Zander. I really loved how different and similar they were. They had a good relationship deep down even though on the surface it seemed difficult.


    Which character – as performed by Graham Halstead and Kitty Bang – was your favorite?

    Tamsin for sure. The accent was spot on!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Beaten but not down.

    "Terrible narration"

    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.
