Catching London by MV Ellis
He’s not looking to change his bad boy ways.
Arlo Jones is a badass millionaire rock star with the world at his feet. He lives the “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll” lifestyle to the max, and believes in working hard and playing harder. He’s a man who always gets what he wants, especially when it comes to women. Until he meets London.
She’s a damaged dancer not looking to fall.
All London Llwellyn wants is to rebuild her life following the tragic car accident that robbed her of her fiancé, and ended her career as a professional ballet dancer. She’s working two jobs to scrape together the cash to set up her own studio, and reinvent herself as a photographer. The last thing she wants is to get involved.
Arlo promises to always be there to catch her, but can London trust him enough to let herself fall?
This was my first MV Ellis read and I was really impressed. As most of you know, I am a sucker for rocker romance and this didn’t disappoint. The first paragraph has me sucked in.
Arlo, I loved his cockiness right away as well as his alpha maleness. He is not only a rock god, he is the world’s rock god. The man always gets what he wants, when he wants it. Never in his life did he expect a feisty little house keeper to rock his world. He will do all he can to get her.
London had me laughing from the get go. After a tragic car accident that left her fiancé dead and cut short her promising ballet career, she has been focusing on rebuilding her life. She is working hard to save enough money to open her own photography studio. During the day, she works for her aunt’s cleaning service and in the evenings, she works as a waitress. Little did she know that spider’s would change her life forever.
Arlo offers London and once in a lifetime opportunity. He wants to help her and his intentions are good but remember, he also gets what he wants…
I have to say, London got on my nerves a bit. I felt at times she was really immature and a bit wishy washy. I get she suffered a double tragedy but I felt the way she acted sometimes was more adolescent rather than the fear and hurt of her loss. There were times I wanted to slap her and then times I wanted to hug her. Arlo works hard to bring down the wall surrounding her heart and man, he definitely melted mine.
The supporting characters were fun and I am really hoping for a certain twin to get his story.
For me, this was a sweet, sexy easy to turn the pages and get lost in the story read.
