I've been reading since I was my oldest daughter's age….thanks to R.L. Stine & Christopher Pike…and later on thanks to Anne Rice.  Those 3 authors changed my life and I have been obsessed with reading ever since.

5 full moons - "London Falling" by Chanel Cleeton

London Falling - Chanel Cleeton

Chanel Cleeton did an amazing job on the sequel to I See London.  I thought Chanel put me through the ringer in the first book…oh boy was I wrong.  Don’t get me wrong, I was prepared for Maggie and Samir to have a difficult time because these two came from two different worlds, but Chanel made it more difficult with the details of what Samir and Maggie were going through individually.  I was prepared for the ending to be different, but Chanel gave the perfect ending to such a beautiful couple.

In London Falling, Chanel picks up where I See London left at, and how Maggie is confused with Samir.  He hasn’t contacted her since there moment together at the end of last semester, so she has no idea how he feels about her.  Chanel gives Maggie and Samir such a hard time on making up their minds what they are going to do, but she had their relationship grow through the book.  They were tested constantly and they proved that they were lying to each other about what was going to truly to come.

I love when an author can switch from different points of views and make the reader feel for both characters.  Oh, I how I loved Maggie and Samir from the moment they met in I See London, but in London Falling they are tested completely.  Samir is from a prestigious family in Lebanon that is preparing him to take his father’s legacy.  His family wants him to marry a Lebanese woman and Samir is confused with what he wants.  Maggie is from South Carolina and she’s dealing with her father not being around and her mother leaving her.  She knows she doesn’t belong in Samir’s life, but for the little time she wants to enjoy being with Samir.Gosh darn it…throughout the whole book I was rooting for these two to be together because they belonged together.

I loved every bit of London Falling just as much as I did I See London, and I”m really going to miss Maggie and Samir.  They both have become a favorite couple of mine this year to read.  Chanel did an amazing job on making me fall for such a stubborn, lovable, and steamy couple (together).  I also adored learning more about Fleur in London Falling and hope we get more of her in the future.  She needs her happily ever after too.  The poor girl needs to find the perfect boy just like Maggie did.

If you enjoy New Adult romances that have a couple that involve opposites attracting and includes tension, angst, steamy moments, and heartaches than this is the book for you.  I give this book five full moons and highly recommend it to New Adult readers out there.

I’m so glad I was introduced to Chanel Cleeton’s books from InkSlinger PR because I have found an author I look forward to reading more from in the future.  =)

I received a complimentary copy of the book from Netgalley via the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
