usual crowd I’d see at China White were all here trying too hard not to look
desperately bored. Through the crowd, I spotted a flashbulb go off, and I

course, the club had hired photographers for the event. But I eyed the
shutterbug again. Slight build. Dirty blond hair gelled up into spikes. I could
have sworn I’d seen him before. The hairs on the back of my neck stood at
attention, but I couldn’t place the guy. I needed to calm down. The hiring
staff would only hire reputable photographers. They knew that we required the
utmost privacy, and they wouldn’t hire anyone who had ever worked with the
tabloids. But still, I couldn’t shake the feeling I’d seen the guy before.
Maybe he was one of Xander’s students?

friends if I’d been trying.

models. One of the guys put his arm around Abbie, and I had the irrational urge
to plant my fist in his face.

she looked stunning. She’d worn her braids piled on top of her head in some
kind of bun, with long dangling earrings showing off her slender neck.

a room, I see why the urgency.”

as if she felt my eyes on her, she immediately looked up.

yesterday, but any time I spent away from her felt like eons. But it wasn’t
like I could really complain. She’d had work to do for my brother. I tried not
to think about what Xander had said about her. It didn’t matter what Xander thought.
I couldn’t stop seeing her.

reached the landing, she fixed me with a smile. “Fancy meeting you here.” She
looked around surreptitiously. “In a sex club.”

moments, we stood facing each other, neither moving, forcing anyone who wanted
access to the stairs to go around us. Finally, I angled my body a little closer
to her and said, “It’s one of his dad’s clubs. Do you want to go somewhere a
little more private… to talk?”

with her victim for the night, and past the sex viewing rooms. She held on
tight to me as we passed by them.
much as I wanted to be with her, I hated having her here in the midst of all
the kink that was going on. “Maybe we should leave the club?”
okay. We came as a group for Jasper’s gig tonight. Apparently, there’s some big
promoter here. Jasper’s hoping to get some representation tonight. We’re sort
of supporting him. Everyone would notice if I left.”
Jasper might be my friend, but jealousy ate at me. I wanted her there to
support me. Of course, I’d have to tell her something real about myself first.
I found the private rooms, then after looking around to make sure no one paid
us any attention, I dragged her inside. Dim red light illuminated the
comfortable-looking couch and bed. Her eyes widened as she glanced around.
“This is… cozy.”

wanted to be alone with you for two minutes before things get crazy out there
and we don’t have a minute to talk all night.”
fine.” She placed a hand on my chest, and my heart hammered. “I’d rather get a
minute with you, even if it’s in a sex room. I wanted to talk to you about
a lot of time together over the last week, but we hadn’t been alone.
Always out in public. Even the photo lab had been occupied when I’d gone to
help her. The one night we’d made a date for her to go to my place, she’d had
to do some schoolwork for Xander and rescheduled. The prick of guilt stung as I
thought of how badly her last critique had gone.

unique scent, drove me a little crazy and made my head swim.

“I don’t understand.”

Maybe we don’t need to take it quite so slow anymore.”
washed over me like a wave. As did panic. I was totally fucked. I was
completely in love with her. And there were things she still didn’t know about
things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she
borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious
thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.
With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner
Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own
characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime
works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as
sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.
The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle
and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books
list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.
Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working
hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances
for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding
in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and
puppy in sunny San Diego.

London Soul was a great conclusion to Abbie and Alexi story, they have come a long way from trying to see if what they have is real to fighting to be with one another. Both characters are fighting their own demons and they both go on this journey of becoming better people for the sake of their relationships.
London Soul had a little bit of everything we love about Nana’s writing, witty comebacks, extreme sexual tension, crazy plot twist, and thrilling conclusions. I also feel as though there is still more to come, though it was a conclusion on how they met there is still the current issue of them becoming royals and I am hoping that Nana explores this even more in the upcoming books.
What I am liking a lot about these London series is that we go back in time to see how the couples met, we knew from the beginning that they would be together, we just didn’t know the whole story. I am now in complete shock with how Nana ended this story in the epilogue, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Xander. I am also intrigue by him, he was definitely portrayed very mysterious between both books, so I want to know if this Chase brother can bring the same intensity as his younger brother.
