Blog Tour Review and Giveaway: London Falling by Chanel Cleeton

We weren't a relationship, we were a ticking time bomb...

Maggie Carpenter walked away from the hottest encounter of her life when she left the seductive glitz of England for summer break in her South Carolina hometown. Now that she’s returned to the International School in London - and sexy, privileged Samir Khouri is once again close enough to touch - she can’t help but remember the attraction, the drama... the heartbreak.

She can’t help but want him even more.

Samir can’t afford to fall for someone so far removed from his world, not when his time in London is running out. It's his senior year - his last chance at freedom before he returns home to Lebanon. There, he’ll be expected to follow in his father’s footsteps - not follow his heart to Maggie. But when a scorching secret hookup becomes a temptation neither can resist, they’ll both have to fight to survive the consequences... and find a future together.

Don’t miss this explosive sequel to I See London, and the riveting conclusion to Maggie and Samir’s story. This is a New Adult romance recommended for readers 17 and up.

5 Words: Surprising, love, friendship, family, heartbreak.

I have to start by saying that this was amazing. It was a perfect end to the two International School books. In honour of this awesomeness I'm going to try something a little different with my review.

Dear Chanel Cleeton, 
My name is Cora and I loved your first International School book, I See London. It was one of the books that helped to reinstate my faith in the New Adult genre. So when I was picked to take part in the blog tour for the follow up novel, London Falling, I was ecstatic. Thrilled. Excited. And I couldn't wait to get back into that crazy, passionate world where Maggie and Samir danced around their attractions. I was prepared for a bit of whirlwind, a lot of love and a bit of heartbreak. 
But I was absolutely not prepared for the journey that was London Falling. 
Maggie and Samir up the ante in this book. Their passion just EXPLODES from the page. I found myself getting all caught up in it and what was happening. I was giggling and frowning and I wanted to cry and to shout at the two of them. Fleur and Maggie had the best kind of friendship. I love those gals. 
It was surprising and heart breaking and it made me doubt myself. In the first half I wanted one thing, but when it got near the end and it seemed like that was going to happen? Make it stop! Change it! So thank you very much for that ending. I needed that ending. It was the right ending. 
I sat and thought for ages about how I could describe this book once I finished it. And all I could come up with was amazing. Because it was. It left me speechless, my thoughts incoherent. It was, in a word, AMAZING.
Lots of reading love.

PS. I need more about Fleur. I love Fleur. GIVE ME MORE FLEUR! She totally needs her own book. And with that mind-blowing ending I can't even remember what happened regarding the picture and the "send me money or else" and I think I'll have to read. Or you'll have to give Fleur her own book.

GIVEAWAY

  1. I have a love/hate relationship with NA. Up to this date, I don't recall giving more than 2 stars for one in that genre unfortunately. ALTHOUGH, this book looks absolutely loveable. ^^ Also, the cover is so beautiful. *.* Great book tour choice and wonderful post, Cora. :)

    Was saying that I have a love/hate relationship with NA but this one looks nice and loveable so will definitely try it. PLUS, that cover. *.* Or more likely that dress. *.* It sounds fab and I do love your review. I did the same kind for my review of The Hunger Games on Goodreads hahaha. ^^
