    Fayth is in the middle of a divorce just after losing her mother and sister in a car accident. Besides, Hollie, her best-friend, Fayth has had the support of Liam York, a Hollywood actor. Their friendship isn’t the easiest one giving the fact that he has fans everywhere and is pretty popular, which makes it difficult to assume any kind of feelings that she might have for him. Even more because she lives in Scotland while he lives in New York. On the other hand, there’s Hollie and Astin who alrea Fayth is in the middle of a divorce just after losing her mother and sister in a car accident. Besides, Hollie, her best-friend, Fayth has had the support of Liam York, a Hollywood actor. Their friendship isn’t the easiest one giving the fact that he has fans everywhere and is pretty popular, which makes it difficult to assume any kind of feelings that she might have for him. Even more because she lives in Scotland while he lives in New York. On the other hand, there’s Hollie and Astin who already assumed their feelings and are finding their way into their relationship. But what looked like a sea of roses turned into a nightmare when Astin had an accident while working, ending up in a wheelchair (even though just temporarily). He won’t give Hollie a chance to help him, even less love him. As you can see, the plot is quite interesting. Each one of them has their own problems but they all find support in each other. But this just didn’t do it for me. The book is too long and its pace just made me lose the intertest in the story. It’s just problems after problems, it honestly gave me a headache while reading this. All the good things happen in the last 100 pages of the book, which I read really fast because they were actually good scenes, well written and perfectly paced. And while those final pages were perfect for me, the rest of the book is almost dispensable in my opinion. The characters are good, even the secondary ones like Wade, Liam’s bodyguard. There is also another relationship going one between Tate and Jack, but this one wasn’t so developed in the book as the other two I mentioned, although it looked interesting. The book ends with Fayth and Liam happy with their lives and their relationship while Hollie and Astin end up mad at each other (which will probably be sorted out in another book).Altogether, I think the good things shouldn’t be all stuffed in the end of the book because it just makes it so boring and so long. I received an ARC via Netgalley from the Publisher.

    What Happens In LondonKristina AdamsAhhh! That ending...smdhI had no idea what I was getting into when I started this book. I had quickly read the blurb and thought this would be something I would enjoy. I had no idea that it was a continuation from What Happens in New York. But the author did an amazing job with her writing and I was able to figure out all the characters and the majority of what happened in book 1 so I wasn't lost while reading. I absolutely fell in love with this story and all What Happens In LondonKristina AdamsAhhh! That ending...smdhI had no idea what I was getting into when I started this book.

But the author did an amazing job with her writing and I was able to figure out all the characters and the majority of what happened in book 1 so I wasn't lost while reading. I absolutely fell in love with this story and all of the characters in it. The ups and downs, friendships, and even the heartbreaks. This is a very real life story with real characters that aren't fake and have perfect lives. They each have gone through their own traumas, loves, and losses. They make you have real feelings about the situations that happen during the story. My favorite character in this story is Hollee. She is a hard worker. Puts everyone before herself. Tries her hardest to make her relationship with Astin work. It gives me great hope that she will have a happy ending in the next book. I hate the character Trinity. She is simply a bitch. She tries to ruin everyone around her mainly because she is miserable. I cannot wait for book 3 to come out and hopefully it will be soon. Cause I have to find out what happens with each of the characters. Thanks NetGalley and Kristina Adams for the arc in exchange for my honest review.

    I did not read the first book in this series. The blurb for What Happens in London caught my attention and I requested to read the book. I was granted my wish via NetGalley.com and the publisher. Going into the story may have given me a different perspective. I started this story after the six characters, Liam, Fayth, Astin, Hollie, Tate and Jack, had meet in New York City in the previous book. There are flashback moments for Fayth and Hollie that brought a piece of history to the table that hel I did not read the first book in this series. The blurb for What Happens in London caught my attention and I requested to read the book. I was granted my wish via NetGalley.com and the publisher. Going into the story may have given me a different perspective. I started this story after the six characters, Liam, Fayth, Astin, Hollie, Tate and Jack, had meet in New York City in the previous book. There are flashback moments for Fayth and Hollie that brought a piece of history to the table that helped me follow the story-line. Fayth has survived a year from hell and meet a great man that she securely set into the friends zone (in book 1). Liam reappears in book two and their relationship morphs and melds. With the accident of Hollie's boyfriend Astin, the selling of Fayth's family pub, the finalization of her divorce and the anniversary of her mother and sisters death, Fayth is stressed, an understatement of the century. Yet thru it all Liam becomes her rock. Liam has is own crazy life that takes a few twists and turns that I never expected. Protecting Fayth from that craziness is a priority but being with her, even in the friends zone, is what he really needs. She brings him an inner peace that he can't get anywhere else. But will the circus of a Hollywood career be too much and bring harm to their relationship or will it bring them closer?Hollie and Astin are finding their way. After Hollie quit her job and Astin pushed her to follow her dream of fashion design, nothing seemed impossible. That was until an unfortunate accident on set that drastically changed Astin's outlook on life. Driven by her love for Astin, Hollie is by his side thru it all. Will their relationship last the ramifications of the accident? Will Astin accept her help? Tate and Jack, wow. That is a whole relationship that needs it own book. I can't wait to explore their relationship. Tate's busy schedule never interfered with her being their for Hollie or Fayth. I really enjoyed seeing this positive side.And Trinity... I was confused on her presence, along with Lawrence. But they did add a twist. I am sure there is more to come with these two.I found this book kept my interest, was paced well, with a story-line that was well written, thought provoking and heart grabbing. I was happy and in love with the characters. Then I was mad as heck at events. And when I reached the last page I screamed "Oh No She Didn't" referring to the author. There are still questions to be answered and I can't wait to see how they play out in the next book. Now, I want to read the first one to see if it gives me a few more answers to my questions.
