A great start...
I was already intrigued by the London Lords from other books, but I was in no way prepared for just how awesome they are! Ben and Livy’s story is the perfect intro! The friendship, the romance, the intrigue...I just cannot wait for more!
Good but not my favorite format
A cute start to the story about Ben and Olivia. I’ve always loved Nana’s writing style but these series books with the “to be continued” seem to be a bit drawn out. This is the first time I’ve just felt the story was too slow. I still love the appeal of the stories and the connections to some of our old favorite characters so I will continue to be a fan. Just wishing for a better format in the future.
This story has a bit of everything, suspense, intrigue, secret societies, and of passion. And boy does Ben and Livy bring on the passion. At first they play coy with each other, but when the fire is lit, it explodes, can’t wait to see what happens in book 2 because warning there’s a big OMG
Big Ben and Little Livy
Big Ben and Livy have a unique meeting, which is the beginning of a unique relationship. Ben and his friends are working to take down the person they hold responsible for their friend’s death. Livy, whose dealing with her own grief and relationship issues, stumbles into the middle of the it all. Ben and Livy have great chemistry and their dialogue is always entertaining - I just wish there was more at the beginning of the book. The first half of the book seems to set up the behind the scenes story, but when the two of them are on the page together the story comes to life. I’m sure all the set up will come in handy as we get into the rest of the series. Spoiler alert...I want to know who she sees in the loft!
Perfect Chemistry and Great Beginners!!
I absolutely loved Ben and Livy!! Big Ben is a total 5-star read!! Big Ben is the first book in the See No Evil Trilogy focused on the telling of Ben, one of the London Lords, and the cousin of Roone Ainsley, and Olivia's story. We first met Ben in Royal Tease, and we have been hungering for his story ever since that first meeting and now we have it!! What a story it is!! Ben and Livy's story takes us on a wild roller coaster ride of a journey filled with mystery, intrigue, romance, secret societies, and a whole lot of HOTNESS!!
Big Ben is told in dual POV, and begins with Ben and Livy's accidental meeting in a dark closet at a fancy black-tie event thanks to each of them hiding out to keep from being discovered, and thanks to Ben, but unbeknownst to Olivia, this will begin the first of their many encounters. Ben, who along with a group of his friends, who are known as the London Lords, and who are all a part of a secret society, known as The Elite, are determined to get revenge on that secret society for their loss. And poor unbeknownst to Livy, out of necessity by Ben, she has been drawn into plan. However, Livy has just as much going on in her life as Ben does in his, but for completely different reasons. Yet, Ben and Livy have so much chemistry between the two of them that it jumps off the pages of the book, and you just know from their very first meeting that these two belong together no matter that Ben has the reputation of being a cocky, arrogant ladies' man, and Livy, of being shy, a one man's girl. I absolutely love them together. Livy is smart, beautiful, feisty, and loving. Ben, however, underlying all of his arrogance, and beauty, is a man of many layers, who most of all is a deeply protective alpha male of those he loves.
Big Ben will make you laugh with all of the witty dialogue between the character, esp. Ben and Livy, but you also will want to beat some sense into some folks. So, if you are looking for a great adventure to begin Big Ben is that book for you, but be prepared for that darn cliffhanger of an ending. I need The Benefactor ASAP!!
Loved Ben and Livy
Big Ben is a fun and thrilling story. I loved the suspense and action. I also loved that Livy is not just a damsel in distress. The chemistry between Ben and Livy is wonderful.
Their story hooked me from the beginning and kept me captivated throughout it. I can’t wait to find out what happens next.
Big Ben is a distraction!
A much needed distraction in a time of quarantine and social distancing. This is kinda new territory for me, but I knew my girl Nana would draw me in with her storytelling & she did. I can’t wait to find out what other intriguing situations Ben and Olivia will find themselves in as the trilogy unfolds.
His sins are many
His sins are many: greed, pride, list and wrath.
He’s working on wrath but gets tripped up by lust.
Ben Covington lives in a world of wealth and privilege and secret societies.
Livy is unwittingly mixed up with Ben and a flash drive.
Fast paced, sophisticated and just the start of how these two are tangled up and all the chess pieces are being set up for the rest of the trilogy.
Great new series!
Big Ben is the story of Livy and Ben. First off I could not wait for Ben’s story after meeting him in some of the royal books. His character did not disappoint. The sparks between him and Livy from the very beginning were electric. I didn’t expect the back story that was the driving force behind Ben. I really enjoyed meeting the other London Lords and hope they also get their own books. The build up between Ben and Livy was excellently written and their chemistry is explosive. The cliffhanger has me anxiously waiting for the next book..I think I might know who it is but I have guessed wrong these books before. Another great series by Nana Malone.
A Must Read!!!!!!
Oh my! This is a story full of drama, suspense, mystery, intrigue and some sweet times. It will have you on the edge of your seat pulling you in and keep you in place. It is amazingly written and has a stunning group of characters. Ben and Livy have this out of this world chemistry that is completely felt throughout the story. It is one that does end in a cliffhanger but oh my goodness is it worth it. It is a spectacular piece of work and one that you will not be disappointed in. A must read!!!!!
