Twenty-seven year old Paul Williams is ambitious and talented. He has already achieved financial success by being driven and single-minded, motivated by the fear of failure, propelled by his childhood lack of security and money. But now he’s on the verge of becoming a multimillionaire and fears any committed romance, while hiding behind a macho exterior. He meets Katie Fels, age twenty, who lives nearby in London and is in her first year at university. She is attractive and sexy and plans to become a barrister. As she falls for Paul, she needs to feel important and cherished, as in her previous relationship she’d had an abusive boyfriend. She wants love, not one-night stands, and plans to develop her career before considering marriage and children. Paul has developed his cutting-edge technology so that he can convert any person’s image and their mannerisms into a hologram … to do whatever the viewer wants.

Jun 11, 2015I received this novel in exchange for an honest review. London Red is a new age romance geared towards the twenty-something audiences. Paul seems like the guy any girl would want; rich, handsome, charming. With Paul’s perfection there are a few hidden scratches. Katie is a young woman who is in her schooling for her career in law. She is drawn to Paul right away and from the moment they meet, there is a spark between both parties. London Red is a well written romance drama that kept a good pace right until the end. Towards the conclusion I felt it was a little drawn out but leading up to that, I loved the up and down situations that this couple went through to be together. I recommend this book to any young adult who has been in love, been hearbroken and alone. I think this book has a lot of emotion and I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to read and review this book.
Feb 12, 2015The concept of the book was interesting and new. I was intrigued enough to go on with the rest of the story even if I felt out of touch with it.My point is that the romance between Paul and Katie seemed borderline "instalove" and as an aspiring barrister,surely Katie was very naive in her appearance. But it was a quick and easy read and I would've definitely liked it more if the story was edited better.
Feb 10, 2015A great modern, erotic romance with a casual, flowing style that keeps the pages turning. London Red has strong characters and an authentically voiced female lead. Plenty of erotic scenes are scattered throughout the book, and they’re spot on. I was pleased to see that they were justified too – an extension of the romance between the two main characters, as opposed to other books I’ve read where it feels the sex scenes have been written first and the preceding dialogue made to match. The book is set in London, so has plenty of English Colloquialisms. I thoroughly enjoyed these – Haigh does well to use occasional words that aren’t native to the American tongue within a context that let me understand them. In my own small way, I felt I was exploring just a little bit of merry old England with each page I read. I was also pleasantly surprised to see that the hologram idea, which while not prominent within the storyline (the book revolves more around the characters feelings for each... More > other) isn’t just a one dimensional plot device but is rather something that you can believe would actually exist. A great read, highly recommended.< Less
Feb 5, 2015Storyline: Paul is a very work orientated individual, on his way to achieving many things in the technical world. He doesn't have the time for a romance but meeting Katy allows him to question his beliefs. Katy is still studying at university and has ambitions of achieving her dreams as well. She want's love but still fears settling down young. The two go through many dilemma's while going through the sale of Paul's business plan and also when the past comes disrupting their newly formed relationship. I read so many novels written by American authors or those just set in America that I never read about a place or context that is familiar to me. This was probably the first time where the language and places hit home for me. Hurray for Costa and being British. So any way, I think Chris Haigh is a fabulous author. I think this is his first novel and if it is then I'd say it's such a great attempt. I could see all the hard work in there and he is definitely very promising. He has a great... More > style of writing which kept me intrigued and I have to say this is the first time that I am reading a new adult novel written by a male writer and I must say job very well done! The book was definitely steamy, some amazing scenes although I felt some places lacked a little detail such as Katy and Paul's first time trying something new. And there were instances where a certain event took place but we were told about it fairly quickly. I think as a reader wanting to connect deeper with the characters I would have preferred to know more. Katy did kind of get annoying in places. I felt she rarely took Paul's opinion although they were a couple, and there was a lot of trust lacking from her in their relationship. Paul felt like the only grown up and I believe she was a little too harsh on him. Another thing I disagreed with was the portrayal of a prostitute in a bad light. Katy nor Paul should have found it ok to demean another individual like that just because of the choices she made about making a living. Overall, I enjoyed reading this story, I will be reading more from this author in the future as I think he's done a fabulous job of presenting a story about two regular individuals just struggling with a normal relationship.< Less
Feb 4, 2015I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. I thought that this book was ok. It did not grip me into the storey though. There were some points were I just wanted to skip and other times I was intrigued. I felt like some parts dragged on longer then they should have, also felt like there was too much, some parts that weren't needed. Also, found some parts jumbled mentioned twice within two paragraphs. I did not feel any connection between Katie and Paul. I felt like there relationship was more based on sex then romance and connection. There was no getting to know each other or working things out, just sex. I was not a fan of Katie's character, for someone who wanted to become a Lawyer/Barrister, she was a little immature and made bad decisions, that I don't agree with. Paul's character was good, he is your typical strong dominate male afraid to commit, successful, rich. The storey line was really good I think there are a few things that could be changed to... More > make it a bit better, but overall it was an ok read.< Less
