I had to reread a couple of the scenes from Catching London coz I actually forgot some of it... but all is good in the world to be in Arlo's head.
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
well, in book one it was London's looonng metal monologues that I found off-putting and now its Arlo's....that's just me though, its a niggle that I find irritating, but that others may be indifferent to or even enjoy. I do enjoy a bit of introspection, it lets me feel and understand a characters actions, work out why they do things a certain way. From the outside Arlo could look like a man-whore jerk, but from his thoughts I can see he's more. I loved him in book one, and I'm glad I read that first as he doesn't seem quite a likable here, somehow his actions come across as very selfish here, certainly his past with Marnie, even when Luke warns him he's being a jerk and unfair, whereas I don't remember feeling that way in book one.
This story really just covers the ground of book one, but from Arlo's POV, there's nothing I noticed that was new there, and I think if the two books had been combined into one it would have worked better for me. Maybe one of those alternating POV stories? So that though I'd be reading stuff I knew already it would still be fresh, and I could meld each POV and see the actions from both sides as it happens.
I love the way he realised he was in love with London, though somehow although the period was covering several weeks/months somehow that didn't translate as well as in book one. It felt they went from meeting and the chaos of that to a kiss, then nothing until suddenly its weeks later and he's planning how to continue with her in his life. It feels like there's a gap in the middle were she keeps house but they don't seem to interact much, and then he's In Love.....
Book three should be interesting, hopefully they'll be a bit more action as they're on tour. I hope ;-) I love Tour books, with all the mayhem, bustle, music, traveling, groupies and chaos they bring. It would be good to get to know the other band members too.
Stars: Three and a half, didn't quite like it as much as book one but it is a good read, though quite short. Melded together, so I got both sides at the same time they would have made a perfect five star, single book for me.

The naked woman is London Llewellyn, a ballerina recovering from a serious accident who now works as a part-time housecleaner. She has a past that Arlo doesn’t know about. She also doesn’t know who he is and is not impressed with his behaviour, at least to begin with.
There wasn’t a lot of sizzle to the story, their chemistry was good but not great, and that wasn’t helped by a lot of their interaction and smexy times being glossed over, or just told rather than shown. This was probably covered in book 1, which I haven’t read yet, so I could be correct in assuming that this is basically a rewrite of it but told in single POV from the Arlo’s perspective. He goes from basically being a douche and a manwh*re to all in love. He’ll do anything to win London over.
Will it work?
Well, I don’t know yet, I need to read part three to find out.
Anyway, if you’re thinking of picking up Cold, Hard and Heartless, I think it’s safe to say, best to start with Catching London first, as I am now going to do.
Cold, Hard & Heartless is the story of Arlo and London, from Catching London. But it's told from Arlo's POV.
This is a fast paced read and I really enjoyed it! I love reading books from alternate POV's and I was so glad to see that we get the same story but from a different perspective!
It made the story much richer, to see Arlo's view of how the relationship came to be, what it means to him and how is trying to become a better person, to deserve London.
I highly encourage readers to start with Catching London (you can find it here!) You could read this story as a stand alone, but it wouldn't feel complete without reading both!
I cannot wait to read what's coming up next for Arlo and London! Well done Ms. Ellis!
There were so many emotions to this book. Mostly of annoyance and swooning. There were times I wanted to throw my kindle to the wall. I felt the characters were meant to be together. But at every twist and turn something would go wrong. So many times I would yell at my book. I was a little disappointed by the length of the book. I felt as if there could have been more story told in this book. But all in all a pretty good read. - By Vanessa

The opening chapter of this novella just about broke my heart, Arlo's perspective of his and London's epic first meeting left me gobsmacked, smiling huge and hot under the collar all at the same time and Arlo's problem solving in the final chapters had me rubbing my hands together with glee. Arlo is gorgeous, talented and a little bit cunning. And I am completely in love with him. Sorry London.
I can't end this review without giving a shoutout to Gramps! I love him almost as much as Arlo. It's not hard to see where Arlo gets his charm. I can see myself reading this novella at least a couple more times before 1st September even.
