Not perfect, but certainly worth a read, and I'd give Emma Carr at least another look. Which, for me, is saying something. Which she gives him proper hell for, I am pleased to say, but not before privately thinking to herself how sexy he is when he goes all caveman.
Jun 30, Laurel rated it it was ok. I was looking for a quick read when I picked this up but unfortunately it took me about three weeks to power through it.
Don't get me wrong, I love chick-lit and I realize that the genre as a whole is pretty cheesy and predictable but I think that the humor and those secret realizations that even though you think the main character is a poor lost mess, you still kind of can relate to them really makes up for it.
However, I didn't really find the attempts at humor all that funny and I had a hard I was looking for a quick read when I picked this up but unfortunately it took me about three weeks to power through it.
However, I didn't really find the attempts at humor all that funny and I had a hard time believing Aimee was actually the uber successful student she claimed be with all the dumb, narrow decisions.
I felt like throughout the book she spent her time worrying about not being pretty enough and boasting about how smart and hard working she is.
I think my biggest problem was that Aimee was really portrayed as having no flaws other than a low self-esteem. Everyone around her seemed to agree that she was a in fact, a beautiful super genius who all men find attractive.
Wouldn't that be great to be that person in real life? Yeah, but to read, it's kind of boring. Maybe the fact that it was written in third person and gave insight into the lives of Aimee, Simon AND Simon's Aunt her involvement could have been left out entirely in my opinion made it too predictable because I knew everything that was going on and it was really easy to piece together.
I do appreciate the fact that Emma asked for reviews of the book so that she can improve her writing in the future. Emma, if you're reading this then I hope you keep writing.
You're on the right track, girl! Synopsis: College student, Aimee Kennedy finds herself stranded in London with no money, place to stay or way to get home in time for the spring semester.
Not wanting to spend a freezing cold night on the London streets, Aimee applies to be a housekeeper to Simon Ruleford, a young British man who is currently busy trying to win business from the Royal family.
Refusing to hire Aimee as an illegal worker and risk scandal for both himself and his family, Simon turns Aimee away.
Unbeknownst to Simon Synopsis: College student, Aimee Kennedy finds herself stranded in London with no money, place to stay or way to get home in time for the spring semester.
Unbeknownst to Simon, he inadvertently locks Aimee in his home and what ensues is a wonderfully hilarious game of mutual blackmail between the two as they each try to achieve what they want most while denying their growing attraction to one another.
Thoughts: I don't normally go in for chic-lit reads, but this one found a place in my heart. I was initially drawn to it for both it's cover of a Scottie dog begging for a stack of cupcakes, along with the story description.
Emma Carr's book was a fun and quick little read that I found myself wanting to stay up late reading to see how everything turned out for Aimee, Simon and the Scottie dog Cupcake who helped the two main characters to not only recognize their feelings for one another but who taught them the true of meaning of being able to trust someone enough to love them.
It is my hope that the author writes another and equally funny book soon, as Emma Carr could very easily become one of my new favorite authors.

Throw in one determined American who won't take any handouts or charity, a cute little Scottie puppy, cupcakes galore and you have one interesting story.
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this story. Honestly, I didn't really care for Amiee as a character I've never met anyone so willing to go out of their way to take the help being given to them , but her relationship with Simon really made me warm up to her.
Lots of cute chick-lit moments and a happy ending give it a few stars, but the fact that I couldn't stop thinking about the story itself for a few days after, made me up the rating to five stars.
Great job for the author's first publication. I'm excited to see what else she comes up with. Apr 15, Lindsey Riley rated it it was amazing Shelves: adult , chick-lit , contemporary.

Fate, however, has other plans. Blackmail and a puppy keep the two together, until each faces a tough decision. What will they choose?
Definitely a five out of five stars read! Jan 19, Rachel rated it it was amazing Shelves: romance , chick-lit. I really enjoyed this book.
For a romance book, it is outside the box. The characters are real people! Not someone's idea of the perfect person.
They both have faults and their feelings develop relatively slowly; this isn't a book about love at first site. My favorite part: they bickered and had awkward sex.
I am sick of romances that promote this idea that sex with the right person will be like fireworks every time. It is so unrealistic.
This book did not make that mistake. The book is finished I really enjoyed this book. The book is finished nicely and the female protaganist does not give up her whole livelihood for the male protagonist.
Another plus in my book! All in all, Emma Carr writes a story with strong, real characters, an unpredictable plot, and a great ending.
Oct 01, Lindy Dale rated it liked it. The story had a lot of potential to be really funny and romantic but for me was spoilt in part by the author's attempts to make the leading man, Simon, sound more English than the English.
He used a few to many 'crikey's and also uttered some phrases that sounded more cockney than upper class.
Also, even though Aimee had all her stuff stolen, I found it a little hard to fathom that she would plod around in a pair of pyjamas for days on end.
Still, I read to the end and wanted to find out how Simo The story had a lot of potential to be really funny and romantic but for me was spoilt in part by the author's attempts to make the leading man, Simon, sound more English than the English.
Still, I read to the end and wanted to find out how Simon and Aimee would end up together. I loved the character of Lucy and hated Simon's horrid father.
The aunt was a bit of a laugh too. Jul 21, Tin rated it really liked it Shelves: , ebook. In short, awkward. And yet, sweet.
Most of the recent books i've read have these couples who have awesome sexual chemistry, that their first time together have this almost unbelievable heat and electricity and spark that you start thinking, it's lust, not love, that they feel for each other.
Simon and Aimee have this chemistry that goes beyond their lovemaking. They are compatible in other aspects as well - emotionally, intellectually and characteristically.
Love this about them. Jul 08, Abutterfly rated it liked it. She took me back to London in a wild way.
The main character, Aimee, is amazingly strong and resilient. And her connection with the English gent Simon is one I fell in love with.
I definitely stayed up way pass my bedtime reading this one. Emma Carr created great characters that I enjoyed following.
Good, easy, summer read Be great for a plane ride read to London! This romance was at times laugh-out-loud funny. I thought that the British conversational slang was well done and accurate, and the American heroine's misunderstandings of it led to some of the humor.
I liked the heroine and her determination to get out of her difficulties very much. I was disappointed in the hero's lack of empathy and his casual attitude toward sex "sometimes it's just for fun".
Mar 20, Cathy rated it it was ok Shelves: reviewed , british-chick-lit , contemporary-romance. This book started out with an interesting premise but slowly fizzling out towards the middle.
The h started to come across as a doormat to me, which seemed rather contradictory to her stubborn nature. The conflict felt forced and the issue with the father was just ridiculous.
I gave it 2 stars because I enjoyed the beginning. Oct 15, Helen Dempsey rated it did not like it. So damn boring.. If your expecting romance then you may get a tiny glimpse near the end.
I just dragged and dragged, no real feeling or warmth to the book.. The lead male character would put Scrooge to shame.
You expect it to heat up in the third or fourth chapter but this book just left me cold and hugely disappointed. Nov 23, Lori Susan rated it really liked it.

FIVE THINGS ABOUT LONDON FALLING What a splendid and fun supernatural procedural. I read it in its entirety on a cross-country flight, while a weary mother's dictatorial three-year-old loudly terrorized my entire seating section from the seat beside mine.
Even with a strange child's feet flailing in my lap and a strange child's popcorn arcing over my field of vision and a strange child's crappy diaper removed and instantly refueled inches away from me, this novel held me.
So, without further ado, FIVE THINGS ABOUT LONDON FALLING What a splendid and fun supernatural procedural. So, without further ado, five things about it: 1.
It's the first in a series: the Shadow Police series, book 3 of which came out last year in the UK and is coming here to the U.
I know that I'm a hypocrite to be saying I'm not a fan of series because I don't like waiting for the next book to arrive, but there it is, it's the truth.
London Falling, however, wraps up book one's concern in a satisfying, sprawling climax, and although there is a decidedly open ending, it's better classified as a promise than a cliffhanger.
Cornell has writing chops. I knew before starting London Falling this was his debut novel, but I also knew that he wrote comics and had written a few episodes of Dr.
He brings that sprightly pacing to this novel, juggling four main characters with ease. It's a procedural at heart, so expect efficient, brisk characterization rather than lavished pages of introspection, but the main characters were nonetheless specific and intriguing.
The magic is just wonderful. Sometimes when a book tries to meld grit and magic, one or the other suffers, but London Falling delivered some lovely and toothsome magic that felt essential and old.
The first 50 pages are a slog. I'm saying this because I want you to push past it. There are a lot of characters introduced very quickly and a lot of unfamiliar workplace relationships strung across the page, and for me, at least, it meant that I sometimes had to flip back to earlier pages to see if I was remembering last names correctly.
This may have been due in part to my airplane seatmate's shouting that she wanted her candy NOW, but I suspect not. There is a very, very rewarding plot element three quarters of the way through the novel that I'd love to tell you about — but I won't.
It is the result of a careful building of a plot and character house, and far be it for me to bring it tumbling down before you get a chance to climb the stairs.
Suffice to say that I grinned on the plane when I read it. Well done, Cornell, well done. I'll be checking out Cornell's other work posthaste.

I sought out London Falling as it was recommended by Ben Aaronovich, who writes my very favorite Peter Grant books.
But this didn't quite work. The coming together of an investigative team? Police procedural? Serial killers? All ingredients that sound appealing.
Cornell has enjoyable writing. Vivid descriptions that make the magical seem plausible, and capture the confusion of people confronting it for the first time: "The stairs, right in front of her, were particularly challenging.
It was as if you could see underneath the stairwell and yet up it at the same time. The up-and-down pattern of the stairs seemed to be overlaid on the surface of your eyes.
But it was still contained within a discrete space. It was like a Picasso painting of a stairway. Characterization of people, however, is a little weak.
The third-person narrative jumps between the perspective of Quill, the Detective Inspector leading a two year-long undercover operation; Costain, the lead undercover officer who might be sampling too much product; Sefton, a junior undercover officer; and Ross, an analyst.
Additional short narratives only serve to further confuse the voice issue. That said, Cornell does a nice job of making the Evil in the book foreboding and horrorific: "She looked at him as if it was astonishing and humiliating to hear her name coming from him.
She laughed, and it was a witches' laugh. Not like witches did in children's television. That was only a distant, safe memory of this.
Her laugh sounded like small bones caught in an old throat. As if she was on the verge of choking, only she wasn't feeling the threat of that--only you were.
The attempt to delineate their knowledge on a normal Operations Board had a nicely realistic touch of taking the unfamiliar and trying to find a pattern.
A side road into how Evil began created some false sympathy in a situation where none was deserved, and confused a modern storyline with historical trivia that broke continuity, as it had little to do with current events.
Plotting was partially redeemed by an unexpected twist that brought the problem home. Come to think of it, I tried Jeaniene Frost because Ilona Andrews periodically squees about her books, and that was a miss as well.
Consider my lesson learned. Whether the authors are friends or blurbing for professional reasons, it's not a reason to read the book.

Suddenly we have characters , we have coherent action, we have thrilling magic and intense horror and plot lurches and a really good driving concept.

Suddenly they can see the true evil haunting London's streets. Armed with police instincts and procedures, the four officers take on the otherworldly creatures secretly prowling London.
Football lore and the tragic history of a Tudor queen become entwined in their pursuit of an age-old witch with a penchant for child sacrifice.
This is a book that is not like any other. He goes above and beyond the call of duty to solve the crime and "nick" the villain at any cost, even if it means losing his life.
Costain: The lead undercover cop above Sefton , with a dirty past and seedy present that he desperately tries to keep hidden, works to make up for the sins of his past and make right what he is doing wrong.
He has a quick temper, but is utterly loyal to the group, even though he loathes Sefton for reasons only known to him. Quill: The Detective in charge of the undercover cops.
He means business and is uncomfortable around things that don't make sense. Quill says to close cases very quickly because he always feels his neck on the line from top brass.
Then he changes. Ross: The enigma. She has the biggest secret among them all. An analyst for the police force, she researches databases and does searches for them looking for suspects and witnesses.
Ross is a computer wiz, not so much a police officer. She gets called into the field when the search for the villain is underway. She proves to be the most active character of them all.
The Witch: A terrible and haunting crone. She has a taste for death and power and sacrifices children in the name of power. The witch has no qualms about hurting others who are in her way.
She wields enormous magical powers which are used against the group time and again. WRITING: The writing was absolutely wonderful.
The tale was strung together with perfect adjectives and words that played together in a way that created visuals that wouldn't leave the mind at rest.
The descriptions are plenty, however not so much that it takes from the actual story itself. The views of London and the characters were full of flavor and color, and terrifying ghostly images when confronted by those who had the ability to see them.
PLOT: The book starts off as a police procedural with undercover cops investigating a crime boss and his soldiers acquiring and distributing drugs and weapons.
The detective, Quill, Is anxious to close the case and makes specific threats to Costain to make sure that he gets the information that will settle the case and render a certain arrest possible.
Events happen, which are strange and frightening also confusing and the plot begins to move into a supernatural way. The investigation into the world of the witch and the power in which she feeds is then started.
They follow many leads, often coming up with nothing. There are red herrings and it becomes evident that this is not going to be a predictable story.
The subplots, particularly, Ross's background, is something of a surprise. This leads to the discovery of what will happen towards the end.
The Plot is thick with suspense and thrilling adventure, Though this story, in particular, is filled with some disturbing scenes, it is a very good story.
There is no predictability factor. WHAT I LIKED: I liked the development of the story and the pace in which it flowed.
There was no hesitation, no stopping, no drypoints. Though there were some points where the dialogue was necessary to describe certain things and propel the storyline in one direction or the other.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: I don't like cliffhangers very much. However, some are necessary as openers for the next book in the series. This one, however, simply dropped the story off a cliff.
It wasn't so much a cliffhanger as much as a cliff drop. I had no idea what was going on. I was a little disappointed. I, of course, borrowed the next book in order to see what would happen next.

And I can see some basic similarities. Cornell shows us a I chose this novel to read to fill the Fall into a Good Book square of my Halloween Book Bingo card.
Cornell shows us a much darker, grittier, and more threatening magical system. I also felt like the whole book was set-up, which may pay off in the second book.
Up until that point, I could have walked away without finishing the book and had no regrets. However, those last few pages have convinced me that I need to know where things go from here.
As I approach the end of several other beloved series, I am experiencing anticipatory mourning, so it is good to have another good series queued up and ready to roll.
The Shadow Police will definitely help me with the loss of my favourites. I wasn't sure what to expect going in to this one, you know, because of that whole "not reading descriptions" thing I do.
So the beginning threw me right off and I was confused as all hell for probably the first quarter of the book. But then things started to make more sense, and I found myself quite enjoying this.
I liked the characters - they were all pretty well drawn and realistic, and I felt that I was starting to get a feel of who each one o Well I liked the characters - they were all pretty well drawn and realistic, and I felt that I was starting to get a feel of who each one of them are The story is told in alternating 3rd person limited perspectives from each of the four main characters and occasionally hopping to a side character for a moment or two.
I admit that I found myself wishing that there was just a bit more narrative for each of them to really let me in to their headspace. As it was, I could see the general shape of them, but I still don't quite understand them as much as I'd like to - particularly Costain and Sefton.
These two characters were I don't know. I liked them, yeah, but I never felt like I knew them, or what they were saying to each other. Their subtext was just lost on me.
I think that this is due to the writing style, or maybe it's a cultural thing, or maybe it was just that I didn't really understand them enough, but I just didn't really get their conflicts.
I did really like the way that these characters were just thrown into this situation, and how they were not necessarily innocent or naive in general terms, because they've all seen their share of some shit That's fine, usually That problem-solving process just felt like something was missing.
It's there in broad strokes, and it was enough to get the job done, but I want to follow along and understand WHY such and such action or gesture or whatever works.
I know that THEY don't know, either, but they have a feeling, and I want to feel like I also have that feeling. We're learning together, but I feel like I've missed half the lessons, and am always a step behind.
I think this is also partly why I couldn't really get a handle on Costain and Sefton as well. The writing told me what they were saying, but not enough of why As a plus about the writing style, I liked the way certain facts about the characters were released as just normal, no-biggie things, which became important later and felt like "OH SHIT!
I don't know what it says about me that I read the description of Quill's home life and thought nothing of it, just accepted it as normal, until the significance of what it meant dropped like a rock onto my head.
I mean, I read a lot into the description of Quill and Sarah's home, and felt that I understood the subtext there, so When it became an issue, I was shocked, because it was there, but NOT there, and I felt it like a gut punch right along with Quill.
So there were definitely some aspects of the writing that worked beautifully for me, while other areas fell a bit short, is what I'm saying.
Still, overall, it was a really enjoyable story. Dark and grim, but it did throw me for a loop with the whole soccer aspect. I get the motivation there, but still, at first, I admit that I thought it was rather silly.
I probably will carry on with this series, if only to find out what the main plan is, and why these four were drafted into this project, and just because it's enjoyable and different.
I love how the city itself is described, and how it's such a huge part of the magic and menace. London has such history and weight and it's fascinating to see it play such an important role in this story.
It's not just a setting, it's as alive as any of the characters. I like that. View all 3 comments. Urban Fantasy is one of those murky sub-genres that can mean different things to different people.
