LB-Cover Wrap3 (1)When your past and present collide, can love surpass it all?

When Leslie Lincoln, a spunky, red-headed American, suffers an awkward moment with an arousingly-sexy British man—she thinks her life can’t get any more pathetic.

She’s done with men.
She doesn’t need them.
She especially doesn’t need their muscular thighs.
No siree, she’s going to forget all about the brooding, complicated, and seductive “Theo” who captivated her on the dance floor of a London nightclub.

Keep telling yourself that, Lez…..

Immersing herself into a new type of romantic cleanse, Leslie thinks she’ll never lay eyes on Theo again. But somehow, he’s managed to bulldoze his way back in—her cheetah-print onesie pajamas be damned.
He wants more.
She wants to run.
But he can’t seem to let her go.

Both of them have a past—and neither want to share.
How can love possibly survive in darkness?

Interview with the Author of the London Lovers Series

Welcome all. Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing, Amy Daws, author of the London Lovers Series and the upcoming new release, London Bound.

Hi Amy, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Congratulations on the cover reveal!

Thank you! I’m really excited about releasing London Bound. Leslie is a heroine unlike any other I think.

The cover is gorgeous, who are the models?

The girl is from my hometown actually. Just a small town in Iowa. My first two covers featured a girl from my hometown too so I think I’ve started a trend here without even knowing it! That author, Jake Kerouac said the prettiest girls in the world are from Iowa! So I’m just taking a page out of his book!

London Bound is the third book in the London Lovers Series, correct? Do readers have to read the first two?

Definitely not. I wrote them to all be interconnected, but still able to stand on their own. Books one and two are told through my heroine, Finley. Those are nicer to read in order I suppose. But this with London Bound, it’s a different heroine, Leslie. Leslie was Finley’s best friend in books 1 and 2, so you’re getting a completely different story.

What’s Leslie like?

Oh goodness. Leslie is that kooky, crazy, hilarious best friend that everyone wishes they had. She’s a fiery red head with a creative side and a heart of gold for her friends. She’d do anything for her friends and actually does a lot for Finley in books one and two.

How did you decide to give her her own book?

Probably the biggest reoccurring compliment I got in reviews for books one and two was how awesome my secondary characters were! It was crazy! Everybody loved them! I think with a lot of books, secondary characters are almost annoying to readers because all they care about are the leading characters. But somehow, I write great secondaries! So I’m grateful to be able to capitalize on that! It’s fun to see the funny girl get her HEA.

Do did you have any idea Leslie was going to get her own book when you started writing this series?

I did not. I’m a fly by the seat of my pants writer and I didn’t even know I was going to give Leslie a love interest in A Broken Us, but all the sudden, I was writing it. And it was a hilarious first impression! I thought I was done but then, alpha Theo got under my skin. He’s a bruiser of a man who’s very sensitive but in a caveman sort of way. He’s sexy as hell and I wanted to see how Leslie got on with him!

What are you most excited about in London Bound?

The comedy element for sure. Leslie is the funny girl! And her best friend Frank is a fantastical gay man who says the most out-landish things. I’m really pushing the funny factor in this romance as much as possible.

But it’s not going to be a totally light hearted book. There’s a really deep, dark tragedy that I’ve written that will bring a huge juxtaposition to the lightness and silliness of Leslie. I think it’ll be a really interesting contrast for readers.

Will there be more books in this series?

Yes! Liam from A Broken Us was such a sweetie pie! He needs his love story told. I have lots of ideas him.

Any other WIPs we should know about?

My memoir series is still in progress. Chasing Hope released last May and Chasing Peace will hopefully come out before the end of the year.

Thanks for your time today.

Thank you for having me! And sorry about not having a presale link for this new book yet, but that’s why I dropped book one to 99 cents this week, it’s something for readers to feed that #oneclick addition!

Looking forward to it. Thanks again.

Such a sweet and realistic college love story that turns out to be more than a fling. I’m so excited to read A Broken Us (the next book in the series)! There was a little sneak peek at the end of Becoming Us and those first chapters … I NEED MORE! –Laura W rated it 5 of 5 stars

The dreaded friend-zone…

The last place I ever want to be with college basketball God, Jake LaShae.

I am losing my mind trying to figure out what this gorgeous and confident man wants from me. I need to break through his walls.

What is it about me that makes him not go there? What am I lacking?

When a mind-blowing betrayal knocks the wind out of me, and I think I can’t feel any lower…Brody stumbles into my path—barefoot no less, and sexy as hell. His direct and mouth-watering swagger is a breath of fresh air. The feelings this man gives me are like nothing I’ve ever experienced.

But Brody has a past.

A past that makes it nearly impossible for him to trust me and let us become us in whatever capacity that may be.

Just when Brody and I truly connect, just when I think that finding my soul-mate in college isn’t a total joke, Jake comes back into my life…and messes things up…possibly for good.

An epic love story, to say the least. I’m always looking for a good fast read and this book was EXACTLY what I was looking for. From the second I started reading the book, I couldn’t put it down…. I actually found myself thinking about the characters when I wasn’t even reading!!! – Amcaskey rated it 5 of 5 stars

The moment those words come out of the doctor’s mouth, I feel sick. So sick. The life I have dreamed of…obliterated. And Brody. God, Brody. How will he look at me? How can he accept me? He’ll know what I hid from him. He’ll know everything. It’s over. It’s completely over. I can’t tell him “I love Us” anymore. Even though I do. Even though it will kill me. I can’t tell him anything. Everything is ruined. Pummeled. Broken. I have to leave him. I have to give up us. I know he’ll come after me. I just have to do something to make him not want to.

excerpt

Brody pulls me into his room, shuts the door, and presses me up against the back of it. His lips connect with mine and he strokes his thumb tenderly along my jaw. I groan into his mouth at the forceful entry of his tongue. Brody doesn’t kiss like a college boy, he kisses like a man.

“I thought about you all night,” he moans against my lips, and comes back in, pulling my lower lip into his mouth and gently scraping his teeth along it as he releases it.

I instantly pull it into my mouth, sucking off the remnants of the searing kiss he just laid on me. “Damn,” I whisper.

“Damn what?” he whispers back.

“Damn, this is going to be so hard.” I scrape my hands through the sides of his hair and kiss him passionately, taking control and showing him that while I love the power of his kiss—I can match it. He presses his hips against me in response and I let my hands fall down to my sides, feeling at a loss with the epic arousal approaching.

He strokes his hands softly down my arms, then grabs my wrists and pushes them up above my shoulders, pinning them to the door. Holy Jesus, this is too much.

Author Interview
Hi Amy, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself and your background?

I’m currently a TV commercial producer for a local network affiliate station in South Dakota. So I still have a day job…booo! But it’s not so bad. I write, shoot, and edit commercials for a living. So it’s creative and laid back. And really fun. I love it. But writing is definitely a huge passion of mine.

What started your writing?

Well, I went through many years of personal tragedies and sadness. I suffered from multiple miscarriages. In the course of about three years, I lost five babies. It was terrible. But magically, I got my happy ending. My daughter is two and feisty and cool and just badass. I love her like crazy. Anyways, after getting her, I realized how fortunate I was and what an incredible journey I went through. I call it tragically beautiful. I didn’t want to forget that journey and I wanted to be able to tell my daughter about it someday, so birthed my memoir, Chasing Hope.

Is Chasing Hope available for purchase?

Yes it is. I released it in May of 2014. It was my very first book and a huge learning experience for me in the book industry. It’s a true story obviously. It’s emotional and inspirational and will definitely make you go and hug your babies. I wrote it in a way where you read it like a novel, not necessarily a chronological autobiography. So I feel like I did something interesting there. I’m incredibly proud of it. The feedback has been amazing.

How did you branch out into fiction?

I’m a serial contemporary romance reader and really wanted to try my hand at a totally made up story. I wanted more creative freedom. With the memoir, I was limited. So birthed…A Broken Us, an adult contemporary romance. I released it in September of 2014.

What inspired you to write Becoming Us?

Well, Becoming Us, is the prequel to my, A Broken Us. A Broken Us starts off with a breakup…the title sort of gives it away, so I don’t think I’m revealing too much there. Anyways, I decided to write a prequel to that story because I was curious about Brody and Finley’s backstory. I had an idea in my head when I was writing A Broken Us…but I hadn’t totally flushed it out. The more I sat on it, the more curious I became! So…I thought…hey, I’ll write a prequel! If Star Wars can do it, why can’t I? J

What should the reading order be?

You can read Becoming Us and A Broken Us in any order, but I think now that both of the books are out, I’m going to suggest people start with the prequel. It gets you attached to Brody and Finley a bit more and it’ll make A Broken Us all the more powerful when you get to it!

Are these books a part of a series?

Yes! Becoming Us and A Broken Us are the beginnings of my London Lover Series. In both books, I created some amazing secondary characters that are demanding their stories to be finished/told. The secondary characters were easily fan favorites, so I’m excited to see how people respond when I give them full-length novels of their very own!

What’s going to be the third book in the London Lover series?

Leslie! Oh my goodness. Finley’s best friend, Leslie is SO LOUD in my head! She will not stop. I’ve been trying really hard to just focus on marketing Becoming Us and getting that out, but ideas for Leslie’s character keep screaming at me! I’ve had to cut numerous showers short because of Leslie. Don’t ask me why I get ideas in the shower because I have no damn clue! 😛 Leslie’s book is going to be called London Bound and it’s going to be very dramatic and even a little dark, which should be interesting because Leslie is such a silly, funny character. So there’s going to be a big juxtaposition worked in there that should be interesting. And Frank…I have to give Frank his HEA…and since he is Leslie’s gusband…he will definitely get some time to shine in London Bound. I can’t wait to really dive into all of that.
