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.
London Falling is the second book of the International School series. I liked I See London but I LOVED London Falling!!
For me I loved this book more because I made a better connection with the characters. This is because it is written in 2 point of views (POV), Maggie’s and Samir’s. In the first book Samir was the sexy playboy. Now that we read his POV for me he’s sexier and also so romantic! Samir is torn between following his obligations to his family and his need for independence. He is also struggling to follow his heart (which belongs to Maggie). There were so many swoon worthy scenes with Samir that I can’t pick which is my favorite. But the author successfully made my heart beat faster & wish I could have Samir all to myself!
I also liked the scenes with Maggie. Here we learn more about her relationship with her father, which is really heartbreaking! No wonder she is afraid to take a chance on love. If it weren’t for Samir, Maya and Fleur she would be lost and alone. They have become her family. Maggie does have moments of self-pity but it’s understandable and she shrugs it off and moves on. That’s what I love about her. Yes, she has insecurities but it’s not a constant whining! She makes choices that are best for her and for the people she cares about.
I really enjoyed this book. Author Chanel Cleeton created characters I love and a story that kept me wanting more! The series is set in London which adds some fun and excitement to the story. I can’t wait to read more from this author!
