BECKONED, Part 3: From Los Angeles with Love by Aviva Vaughn – Review by Jessica Leombruno

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beckoned Part 3: From Los Angeles with Love by Aviva Vaughn was a little more drama-filled than the last two books; I liked it. After an unresolved goodbye in London, Angela and Soren are trying to make their long-distance relationship work. They have a few bumps along the way, but the biggest challenge is in the form of a Hot Motorcycle riding Bookstore Owner, or as Angela calls him Mr. TDD (Tall Dark and Dangerous). What will Soren do when he finds out who Angela is spending most of her time with? We already know about Soren’s jealous side.

Soren and Angela know how to heat up the pages with their phone calls and form smoke on my kindle when they are in each other’s arms. Angela and Soren have the chemistry but have different takes on life, while Angela and Kieran share something just not sure if it’s more than friendship. Looking forward to the next book to see how this drama will play out.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

BECKONED, Part 3: From Los Angeles with Love by Aviva Vaughn continues where the other two left off. ​There are a lot of ups and downs, conflict and love in this story as our main characters Angela and Soren try to keep their long distance romance alive. There seem to be so many obstacles in their relationship. Angela is a free spirit who loves people, new experiences and trying to find her way into writing books. Soren is possessive and jealous and can’t understand some of Angela’s ways. These two do my head in at times and I think they both need to grow up. Angela has some issues to work through but will she be able to and keep what she wants? Will distance be the only thing keeping these two apart or will others try to manipulate their way into destroying what they have? The only way to find out is to read the books. Now onto the next installment to see where these two end up.

BECKONED, Part 2: From Bath with Love by Aviva Vaughn – Review by Jenni Bishop

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beckoned: From Bath With Love is the second book in the series which continues with  our main character Angela travelling to London to be with Thomas. But what she finds  out changes everything. Angelas time in London is nothing like she expected and is  even better than she could imagine but when her time is up all the angst she never  expected to feel leave her reeling.     Once again Aviva’s vivid descriptions allow you to imagine the things and places she  writes about and you can almost taste the food. I was a little disappointed with Soren  and his perspective on some events and really just wanted to sit him down and tell him  to wake up. He almost seemed child like with his actions. The fact that Angela kept  apologising because of his feelings got my goat up to. Even though I didn’t like it, it  worked for the story.    There is a lot of passion between our main characters which make for an interesting  read. I am wondering where that leaves our characters for the future and am waiting to  read the next book to see.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beckoned: From London is the first book in the series which is also the debut for Aviva Vaughn. Our characters all travel to attend a school that offers the best in their chosen fields. It is a story where students become friends and hearts are hurt. Aviva’s vivid descriptions allow you to imagine the things and places she writes about. The characters in this story are enjoyable and connectable and and make you relive some of your youth. Will love be found or will missed chances mean lost love? This is a good story from start to finish and there is a lot of passion between our main characters.

BECKONED, Part 2: From Bath With Love (Beckoned Series Book #2) by Aviva Vaughn – Review by Angela Hayes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Beckoned: From Bath with Love is the second part of the “Beckoned” series by Aviva Vaughn. The story picks up right where book one finished, so I really recommend that you read the first book before beginning this one to get the best reading experience.
This is a slow-burn, contemporary women’s fiction- that is jam packed full of vibrant and vivid descriptions of travel, adventure, food, longing, second chances, and romance. The book is a very quick and easy read, but the content certainly isn’t lacking. The author packed a lot into this book and it felt like a much longer novel, in a good way. I am really enjoying this series, following Angela and Soren on their journey. This book delves into their emotional mind sets, and we got to see a little more of their characters. There was insecurity, jealousy, push-pull, drama, and some complexity to their situation, that I thought made this story stand out a little more from the first.
As with the first book, I loved Ms. Vaughn’s attention to detail, and the way she used her words to bring Bath/London to life. I felt like I was right there with them.
The book has a fast pace and a smooth flow. And as with the first story, it still retains the ‘classic’ feel, much like a Jane Austin novel.
The writers style is smooth, inviting and very easy to read. She made me want to find out what would happen next, I really want to know where the story will lead, so I have already dived into the next book, that review will follow very soon!

Thank you, Ms. Vaughn!

“If I know what love is, it’s because of you.”

 

Beckoned: From Los Angeles With Love is the Third part of the “Beckoned” series by Aviva Vaughn. This instalment of the series is where it really gets interesting! The whole story/series has been fascinating and captivating- but this book takes it to a whole new level. Ms. Vaughn has upped the ante, so to speak, and produced a story that I devoured in matter of hours. I couldn’t put it down and HAD to find out what was happening. The books just seem to get better and better…. And the love triangle of sorts/the ‘threat,’ and the emotional roller coaster that this story took me on had me sooooo conflicted. I love the characters and thought I knew how their story would play out. But Ms. Vaughn brought in a bit of a twist, a surprising element, that really drew me in and held me captive the entire way!
I read this book about a week ago and have been mulling over how to do it the justice that it deserves. The whole series has been a surprising find, I never expected to love it as much as I have/do. Ms. Vaughn had my emotions and allegiances all tied up in knots, And I loved every minute.
A lot has happened since the first book and Barcelona. Angela and Soren have had an interesting journey. Now, their relationship will be tested like never before. Will it survive? I really don’t want to give away too much because this story is brilliant, and you really should read it and discover all the juicy details for yourself. I highly suggest reading the first two books in the series, before beginning this one- as the story is a continuation from book one and will give you a better understanding of characters, motivations, backstory, and overall storyline.
This book gives a new meaning to the word sizzling! There are some no-holds-barred romps that singed my eyebrows and melted the screen on my kindle!
This is definitely the best of the books, so far. It had everything you could want in a great read- it was captivating, sentimental, emotional, romantic, seductive, sexy, realistic and entirely believable. I am now really anxious about the next book, and to find out how the story will end.
Another fantastic read from a great author!

Thank you, Ms. Vaughn!
