Synopsis

I believe in love. It just doesn’t believe in me.

I date. I’m all for giving guys a chance. I’ve just never met the one.

Until on a spring morning in the English countryside, a tall, dark stranger emerges from the mist. Logan Steele is all tousled hair, hard chest and lips so perfect I want to reach out and touch them just to check they’re real. I’m sure that’s a thunderclap of chemistry I feel between us.

Did I mention he’s an Earl with a self-made fortune?

A billionaire who works tirelessly for charity?

And he’s so hot, watching him is like staring at the sun.

But like I said, love isn’t rooting for me.

When I find out Logan Steele is out to destroy everything I’ve dedicated my life to protect, the chemistry disappears and the hope that had blossomed my chest turns to rage.

It no longer matters that he quickens my pulse just saying my name, weakens my knees with a single touch and that he might just be the greatest kisser that ever lived.

I might believe in love but Logan Steele is definitely not the one.

A standalone romance.

My review:

The Earl of London is a standalone romance, but somehow part of a “series”, since we’ve known the heroine and her best friend Aurora from Duke of Manhattan and there’s also King of Wall Street, The British Knight and Park Avenue Prince .

The Earl of London is Logan Steele, CEO of Steele Enterprises, self-made billionaire, who happens to buy a beautiful estate in a village near London, his grandmother’s childhood home, and ends up falling in love with his neighbor, Darcy Westbury, who runs the family estate “next door”.

Although he’s a the classic playboy/manwhore/commitment-phobe who only fucks a woman once and isn’t interested in more, he’s drawn to Darcy and doesn’t know what hit him until it’s too late.

Now, here’s why I gave it 4★. First of all, I needed about a quarter of the book to get invested in the story and its characters. It took me a long time to like Darcy and to understand her obsession with the village and preserving things and why she was being so reluctant to change. Also, Logan. This type of hero is impossible to love in the beginning, when he seems shallow and egoistic. But then, things change for the better.

Darcy’s spiky personality, calling Logan on his bullshit and being funny without even trying, made me fall in love with her. Her determination and strong character were things to admire as well. As for Logan, well, I will remember him by being commanding in the bedroom and by patching things up really nicely in the end, after he pulled his head out of his ass, that is. Also, his many character layers are interesting to discover page by page.

I found the story just a tiny bit “cliche-istic”, especially when it came to the way the hero was built and his actions, but i admit it was intriguing and good enough for me not to be able to put it down. I’ve read it in one sitting without getting bored or rolling my eyes.

So, if this is your first Louise Bay book, don’t hesitate to buy it and read it. If you’re familiar with this author’s previous books, then you’ll know what to expect and you won’t be disappointed, so again, go ahead, but the book and read it.

Big thanks to the author for giving me this ARC, in exchange for an honest review. Love you, Louise Bay!
