Maggie Carpenter is ready for a change— and to leave her ordinary life in South Carolina behind. But when she accepts a scholarship to the International School in London, a university attended by the privileged offspring of diplomats and world leaders, Maggie might get more than she bargained for.
When Maggie meets Hugh, a twentysomething British guy, she finds herself living the life she always wanted. Suddenly she’s riding around the city in a Ferrari, wearing borrowed designer clothes and going to the hottest clubs. The only problem? Another guy, the one she can’t seem to keep her hands off of.
Half French, half Lebanese, and ridiculously wealthy, Samir Khouri has made it clear he doesn’t do relationships. He’s the opposite of everything Maggie thought she wanted…and he’s everything she can’t resist. Torn between her dream guy and the boy haunting her dreams, Maggie has to fight for her own happy ending. In a city like London, you never know where you stand, and everything can change in the blink of an eye.

This is a New Adult romance recommended for readers 17 and up.


Thoughts:
I See London was a very addicting book.  Everything about it was beautiful…to all the cities that Maggie gets to see; London, Paris and Italy. To the swoon worthy guys that have captured her attention, jealousy, secrets and even a sizzling romantic chemistry.  The whole time through this book, I wanted to sneak a peek at the other chapters before I was done just to see what was going to happen next.

The main character of Maggie was very likable. She is down to earth, friendly, outgoing and has a loving relationship with her grandmother. I loved her inner confidence, she may have had moments of insecurities like any other girl, but she knows exactly who she is. Mya, Micheal, and Fleur were great friends for Maggie, though it took me a while to warm up to Fleur because of her bitchiness in the beginning.

Now we have two of Maggie's potential love interests, Hugh and Samir. Let's start with Hugh who is British, in his late 20's, a successful bar owner, charming, and absolutely gorgeous. He is very intrigued with Maggie. Then we have Samir who is the epitome of tall, dark, and handsome. With his French/Lebanese heritage giving him a sexy, exotic look, he is a charismatic ladies man, but underneath it all is understanding and passionate. There were several of these moments.

I am very delighted that there will be a sequel to this book.  I can’t wait to get more of this author!
