Is this the last book in the series? I'm not sure, but I hope not. -- Bec Wallis * Good Reads * Janeanne says: 'It is always a bittersweet moment when a series comes to an end, but with the Heart Of The City series, Ms Duggan has certainly left the best till last... Ms Duggan drew me into the story through the easy flow of the story and her well paced writing. I am not much of a NA reader (since I am an old fart), however she is one writer that I will always pick up her stories. It has been wonderful to be taken around the world with this series, and I look forward to what Ms Duggan brings us next. -- Janeanne * BJs Book Blog * Overall, this third book in Ms Duggan's Heart of the City series was another delightful read that I could not put down because of the banter between [Kate and Jack] that made for really strong chemistry that just kept building. -- Bec Wallis * Book Magic *
The third standalone novel in CJ Duggan's HEART OF THE CITY series - a very sassy, super sexy New Adult romance from the internationally bestselling author of the SUMMER and PARADISE series.
Like so many of her university friends, Kate Brown is London bound, but unlike her friends - who had the chance to enjoy the beer, sights and attractions of the UK - Kate is instead visiting her grandmother (who may or may not be the devil).
Wanting nothing more than to be a normal, independent twenty-something living it up in ol' London town, Kate finds herself a prisoner in her grandmother's Kensington terrace, daydreaming about the holiday that could have been. But when Kate is almost run over by posh,smirking playboy Jack Baker, it leaves her wondering if being out and about is such a good idea after all, especially when she catches herself laughing at his jokes.
One thing Kate knows for sure is that she has to avoid Jack at all costs. But with her balcony facing his, you can pretty much guarantee Kate's London adventure is going to be anything but boring . . . PRAISE FOR CJ DUGGAN'S PREVIOUS BOOKS:
