Attack of the Fangirl: Review + Release Day Blitz for LONDON FALLING by Chanel Cleeton

I’ve really slacked when it comes to writing reviews for the books I read. Mostly because my first instinct is to go Level 12 Fangirl and post a gif-laden write up expressing my every emotion. While fun, that’s not exactly professional nor is it constructive.
And yet, that’s exactly what I want to do for LONDON FALLING.
I really enjoyed the chemistry between Maggie and Samir in I SEE LONDON and I rooted for this unlikely couple from the first page. The end was a knife in my gut as well as a breathy sigh because the pain. The angst. The yes. Finally. IT HURTS. IT HURTS SO GOOD.
Getting to come back to the International School in LONDON FALLING, back to Maya and Fleur and Michael and, yes, Samir, was like coming home. Watching Maggie and Samir dance around each other only to come together so spectacularly was the sweetest kind of relief. I cheered. I sighed. I clutched my Kindle to my chest and tried to will the clock to stop for them.
And the end? Blessed assurance, the end was a breathless sigh and a whooping cheer and a rush of hope for this couple who found themselves and each other on foreign soil they’d made their own.
For me, the International School books are New Adult must reads. They perfectly represent the category, in my opinion. They combine all the elements we’re familiar with, where we came from, and where we, authors, readers, and believers, want to see it go. I love Samir and Maggie together. I love the diverse cast of characters. I love the party–er–study abroad experience and Samir. Have I mentioned Samir? Because, really. SAMIR.
To conclude:


Come on. I had to get in one. 

LONDON FALLING by Chanel Cleeton
July 7th, 2014
Harlequin HQN (Digital First)
New Adult Contemporary Romance
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.

Barnes & Noble:
Originally a Florida girl, CHANEL CLEETON moved to London where she received a bachelor’s degree from Richmond, The American International University in London and a master’s degree from the London School of Economics and Political Science. Chanel fell in love with London and planned to stay there forever, until fate intervened on a Caribbean cruise, and an American fighter pilot with smooth dance moves swept her off her feet. Now, a happily ever after later, Chanel is living her next adventure in South Korea.
Law school made Chanel realize she’d rather spend her days writing sexy stories than in a courtroom, and she hasn’t looked back since. An avid reader and hopeless romantic, she’s happiest curled up with a book. She has a weakness for handbags, her three pups, and her fighter pilot husband. Chanel writes New Adult contemporary romances and thrillers.
She is the author of I SEE LONDON and LONDON FALLING, published by Harlequin HQN, and FLIRTING WITH SCANDAL, the first book in a new NA series to be released by Berkley in 2015.
