Her return to London has nothing to do with me and everything to do with retribution.

London Bridge (Speak No Evil Trilogy Book 1) The chemistry between Bridge and Emma has been building for years. Bridge of Love: A Speak No Evil Prequel Novella gives you a hint of that chemistry, but in London bridge it is explosive. “Wanting you was like trying to catch a firefly. Ethereal and impossible to pin down. And every time I thought you were in my grasp,you weren’t. But then I learned that you don’t capture something so beautiful.” Bridge and Emma’s story takes you on a roller coaster ride. It grips you so that you don’t want to stop reading and then it happens.Ms Malone leaves you suspended in the air holding your breath. I am holding my breath for Bridge of Lies March 1.

3.75 stars- LONDON BRIDGE is the first full-length instalment in Nana Malone’s contemporary, adult SPEAK NO EVIL erotic romance series focusing on twenty-six year old crisis manager Emma Varma, and twenty-nine year old, billionaire businessman Bridge Edgerton. SPEAK NO EVIL is a spin off from, and interconnected with the author’s SEE NO EVIL and HEAR NO EVIL trilogies, as well as crossing over with several of the author’s previous series. SOME BACKGROUND: Approximately eleven years earlier, during their initiation into the group known as The Elite, Ben Covington, Easton Hale, and Bridge Edgerton lost their best friend and fellow Elite pledge Tobias ‘Toby’ Varma when things quickly spiralled out of control, and the people in charge refused to intercede. Seeking revenge against the people and families they hold responsible for Toby’s death, Ben, East and Bridge walk a fine line between right and wrong in an effort to take down everyone involved. Told from dual first person perspectives (Bridge and Emma) LONDON BRIDGE follows the building romance and relationship between twenty-six near old crisis manager/fixer Emma Varma, and twenty-nine year old, billionaire businessman Bridge Edgerton. Bridge, along with his best friends and business partners Ben Covington and Easton Hale, are biding their time in an effort to take down the final man/family responsible for the death of their friend Toby Varma but Bridge never expected to be caught in a scandal that threatened an upcoming, lucrative financial deal. In an effort to prove /sway the investor that he is not what the paparazzi see, Bridge claims to be getting married with no solid prospects on the horizon. Meanwhile, Emma Varma is disheartened about the lack of progress on taking down her brother’s killers, and begins an investigation of her own, placing herself in the direct line of fire. Having loved Bridge Edgerton since she was ten years old, Emma reluctantly agrees to play fiancee and wife to our story line hero, a position that is about to place a bigger target on her back than anyone could have every imagined but as Bridge and Emma begin life as a married couple, the ‘team’ discover that Emma has a stalker, and Bridge’s past is about to destroy the heart of the woman with whom he is falling in love. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Bridge and Emma, and the potential fall-out as obsession, betrayal and vengeance take aim at our story line couple. The relationship between Emma and Bridge is a marriage of convenience, a best friend’s little sister relationship that reveals years of unrequited love between our story line couple. Emma has pined after her brother’s best friend for as long as she can remember, having watched from the sidelines as Bridge’s $ex life began to implode. Six weeks earlier, Bridge had sent Emma and her mother to America, to protect our heroine from the fall-out of the ongoing investigation and vengeance into Toby Varma’s death, but with her return to England, Emma is determined to stay involved, even if it means risking her life, and her relationship with the man that she loves. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense. LONDON BRIDGE is a story of obsession, betrayal and vengeance; family, friendships, relationship and love. The premise is dramatic, captivating and intriguing; the romance is spicy and energetic; the characters are colorful, charismatic, and powerful…but…I do have a couple of issues. Emma Varma is a strong willed heroine but her actions prove she is little TSTL (too stupid to live). Warned against getting personally involved with the investigation, Emma has made herself a target Also, the amount of repetition in the text is off the charts including the use of ‘oh my God’ fifty-five (55) times (mostly during the $ex scenes) , and ‘oh God ‘ twenty-four times. LONDON BRIDGE ends cliff hanger

OMG!! I FREAKING LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Wow!! Just Wow!! The wait for Bridge's story was so worth the wait...even though I still have to wait for the complete conclusion to his story, but I will take it, because, boy, oh boy, does his story start off with a big bang!! Now that ending has me hanging by a string waiting for the next book in this series. OMG!! London Bridge is Bridge Edgerton and Emma Varma's story. Emma is the younger sister of Toby, Bridge and the other London Lords' best friend, who mysteriously died during the night of their initiation into The Elite, and for whose death the guys have vowed revenge against The Elite. Despite Bridge and the other guys trying to keep Emma away from the danger of them seeking revenge against The Elite, Emma has had enough of being pushed to the backburner and has decided to take matters into her own hands. While Emma is doing all of this, Bridge has found his newly cemented single life has thrown a wrench into the guys' plan against The Elite, and now he needs to find a fiancée, and quick, to save it all. The only catch is the fiancée needs to be someone who has known him for a long time and only one person fits that bill...Emma!! However, the only problem is that Bridge and Emma have both been hiding their feelings for each other since they were kids, and now they have been thrown into this fake marriage. And let me tell you all this is where the story truly takes off. These two are combustible together! Their sexual chemistry jumps off the pages at you. Simply put, they are perfect for each other, but both are stubborn and have been seriously hurt in the past, so the walls they have build up for protection are extremely high! London Bridge is an absolutely fun, fast paced, intriguing, and exciting read. The banter between Bridge and Emma is some of the best I have read. Will you want to shake each of them at various points? Absolutely, but that just makes London Bridge an even more interesting read, because you will want to find out how these two figure things out. And yes, your favorites from the other books about the London Lords are very present in this book as well. As stated before, I seriously need Bridge of Lies ASAP!!! Bravo, Nana Malone on London Bridge! Bravo!!
