Blog Tour: 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.

Having had the chance to read both I See London and London Falling, I can say that I truly enjoyed London Falling that much more...and I really liked I See London!! Perhaps it was because I really wanted to read more about Samir and Maggie but I felt they were so much more interesting a pair than Hugh and Maggie in the first book. The focus of this book is more on Maggie and Samir's relationship which was nice. The secondary characters, though are key in a few parts of the story, really take a back seat in this book.

Maggie and Samir couldn't be more different from each other which made it that much more interesting to read about them. A lot of the book highlighted the massive difference between the two--everything from their cultural differences to their walks in life. There was a huge emphasis placed on how rich Samir is and how poor Maggie is. Surprisingly, it wasn't ever much of an issue between the two of them. Refreshing since money is usually a big divider when it comes to social circles. Another interesting emphasis was placed on Samir's culture and how different his life is from that of your "average American life". His family legacy and its dependency on him to take over as head of the family and business when he finishes school is something that isn't something easily understood but interesting to learn about. 

The timing of the novel--Maggie's second year back at the International School--works out well for a chance of a continuation. Will the couple continue on to be so insanely in love with each other or will their relationship settle down and fizzle a bit? I'm also interested in seeing if Chanel Cleeton goes on to write more (perhaps a story for Fleur?)!
