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?
London and Arlo have an interesting, whirlwind relationship in Catching London. The two spark from the first time they meet. They have great banter and each hold their own well.
I really enjoyed London, she was forced to reinvent herself through tragedy and handled it with grace. She knows her worth and refuses to settle for less. I loved watching her open up to Arlo, and I loved her friends. After a while though, she felt a bit like a martyr. She fought her attraction to Arlo at every turn, for as long as possible. She was closed off, then would let Arlo in, then would shove him back out. He was really trying hard, especially because he had no idea what he was doing. He was determined to be single. It was easy to fall in love with him.
Overall I really enjoyed Catching London. The plot was fun and developed, the characters were interesting and I have my fingers crossed to see London’s friends get their own books!
I wanted to read this story because the blurb reminded me of Kylie Scott Stage Dive series and maybe that was my problem with it. I mean I liked it but didn’t love it and why I’m giving it only 3.5* and here’s why:
1. London was confusing girl to get to know. I understood her pain with what happened in her past, but I was annoyed a few times because she played hot and cold too many times to count.
2. Arlo being the big rock star doesn’t have to try very much to get what he wants. I really like how he was kinda and caring when there weren’t paparazzi around or his fans. I think the biggest issue I have with him is the whole sex with his friends with benefits while claimed he wanted London since the first time he laid his eyes on her. But they weren’t together then, so I guess it was OK?!Hmmm….
Overall it was an OK read. I do hope some of the side characters get their own books. I would really like to read what the deal between Marco and Jordan is.
