Romance, London, and alcoholic ice cream – what’s not to love?


This collection includes Clare London’s second two charming London-based novellas of the With A Kick series – Pluck and Play, and Double Scoop.

Read the enthusiastic reviews at the individual book pages!

WITH A KICK: A new and enticing ice cream franchise, with a unique blend of full flavour, mischief and romance. Patrick and Lee are struggling to make a success of their alcoholic ice cream shop in the centre of tourist London. At the same time, their business partnership may take a turn towards the personal – if either of them can find the time and nerve to go for it! Meanwhile, they cater to the wild and wonderful range of customers in the area, many of whom have their own romantic agenda. Will ice cream be the final ingredient they’re all looking for?

Each story is a self-contained romance, but will follow the history of the shop throughout.

PLUCK AND PLAY: Curtis is a cheery young entrepreneur, secretly licking his wounds after being beaten up by his ex-lover. Handsome cowboy Riley is stranded in London without money. His consolation is his music, and his fascination is Curtis. Their music brings them together, Riley’s guitar and Curtis’ poetry. But when Curtis is threatened by his ex-lover, Riley intends to be the man to help.

I loved Curtis and Riley!

This was a wonderful story of healing, worth, and love. I really enjoyed the opposites and similarities of these characters, tactlessness (mainly of Curtis), and the heart from each of them and I also wish With a Kick was real! It sounds delicious!! I loved Joel’s rendition of each of these characters and I’m excited about Patrick and Lee’s story as part of this collection! I do wish slimy Nick actually got what was coming to him but loved Curtis’ friends ‘acting’ to scare him. I really need to read/listen to Phiz’s story, he’s hilarious!!

DOUBLE SCOOP: A sudden disaster strikes the novelty ice cream shop, With A Kick, threatening the livelihood of its owner, Patrick, and also his assistant Lee. The last thing in the world Patrick wants is to hurt Lee, but deeply-held insecurities prevent him from confessing his love. And how long will Lee wait to make his own move? Hopefully, the disaster brings a new opportunity for them to make a go of things.

I loved Patrick and Lee!

I was so excited about their story and Clare didn’t disappoint! These two are made for each other and I’m so glad Patrick finally got out of his own way and accepted Lee is an adult and can make his own decisions on who he chooses to love! Their coming together is awesome. I’m so glad they were able to finally get out of each others way!! The concept of WIth a Kick is awesome and I loved that Patrick and Lee got the ending they deserved!!!

Joel is an amazing narrator as always. No complaints, Joel’s awesome!

About the Author

Clare London took her pen name from the city where she lives, loves, and writes. A lone, brave female in a frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home, she juggles her writing with her other day job as an accountant.

She’s written in many genres and across many settings, with award-winning novels and short stories published both online and in print. She says she likes variety in her writing while friends say she’s just fickle, but as long as both theories spawn good fiction, she’s happy. Most of her work features male/male romance and drama with a healthy serving of physical passion, as she enjoys both reading and writing about strong, sympathetic, and sexy characters.

Clare currently has several novels sulking at that tricky chapter-three stage and plenty of other projects in mind… she just has to find out where she left them in that frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home.

Clare loves to hear from readers, and you can contact her on all her social media.
