Book Description

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 has 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.

Editorial Reviews


A sassy, steamy and sometimes sweet read that had me racing to the next page to see if Samir would be on it. Mmm, Samir... - New York Times Bestselling author Chelsea M. Cameron

I See London is fun, sexy, and kept me completely absorbed. - Katie McGarry, author of Crash Into You

Lots of drama. Lots of partying. And just a little bit of studying. Guess what? It's New Adult at its finest. - T's Bookish Moments of Escape

Holy smokes, this book was very addicting. I loved everything about this book, from the beautiful cities of London, Paris and Italy that Maggie gets to see, to the swoon worthy guys that have captured her attention, jealousy, secrets, and of course the sizzling romantic chemistry. - Jess Time to Read

I read a lot of books, and I've read a lot of New Adult books that blend together, but weeks after reading it, I can still remember I See London vividly. - Ashley, Book Labyrinth

I was absolutely addicted to these characters, the setting and the intensity of the chemistry between Maggie and Samir. - Kimberly Faye Reads

I absolutely loved this book! It was different enough from others in its genre that it set itself apart from the beginning and it kept getting better as it went along. - Margay Roberge,

What this story does best is the main character, Maggie. She is one of the best written NA characters I've ever read. - Tea Party Princess 

I was in awe, I was hooked, I was mesmerized- I couldn't get Samir out of my mind!!! - Book Freak

I See London is by far my favorite New Adult novel I have read so far. - Lost in Believing

It's a fast, fun read for NA fans featuring an international setting, diverse and interesting characters, and sharp writing. - The Reading Date

4.0 out of 5 stars Great debut novel! February 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Holy smokes, this book was very addicting. I loved everything about this book, from the beautiful cities of London, Paris and Italy that Maggie gets to see, to the swoon worthy guys that have captured her attention, jealousy, secrets, and of course the sizzling romantic chemistry. I found myself even thinking about the novel while I was work, wanting to sneak a few chapters in here and there.

The main character Maggie was very likable. She is down to earth, friendly, outgoing and has a loving relationship with her grandmother. I loved her inner confidence within herself, 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 charismatic, a ladies man, but underneath is understanding and passionate. There were several of these moments..

I am so excited that there is going to be a sequel because the ending left me wanting more. Who does Maggie belong with? You'll have to read to find out.

"We'd held hands enough now throughout the past year that this felt familiar-comfortable, even. And yet exciting at the same time.

I felt alive. And I felt safe." ~ Maggie

5.0 out of 5 stars Great NA read February 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I fell for this book very quickly. I loved the characters, the voice, and the setting. I always enjoy books set in London, and I See London gives readers a great feel for the city, while also showing us little bits of France and Italy.

I found Maggie to be a relatable character. She's studious, and throughout high school she put academics ahead of other things. This means she doesn't have a ton of experience with guys, but with starting college in a new country, she finds herself wanting to make friends and go out. I loved seeing Maggie's eyes opening as she explored London and made friends from all over the world. She really grew as a person as she met all these people who came from such different circumstances than what she's used to.

Maggie's romantic entanglements are a large part of the plot of I See London I definitely preferred one guy over the other, and I'm sure most people would agree with me, but I'll let you guess which guy that is. The chemistry between these two is just completely off the charts. I kept internally screaming at them to get their stuff together, because they make such a lovely pair. There's flirting and romantic tension, but also a completely sweet friendship that you can see should clearly become more.

The book ends not necessarily on a cliffhanger, but it does leave readers up in the air as to how Maggie's love life will end up. The book shows us a great first year of university for Maggie, with her exploring her boundaries in a new place and exploring who she wants to be. We get closure on what (or who) Maggie wants, but it's unclear how it will all work out. Needless to say, I'm incredibly excited for the sequel, London Falling, to release this July.

I promised my kids four years of college at the school of their choice. I put myself through school, which those of you who have done so know is an entirely different situation. I wanted my kids to have that chance to grow and change into the adults they wanted to become. Maggie did not have that. Her father was a fighter pilot and her mother dropped her off at ballet when she was young and never picked her up leaving full custody to a father who did not want it either. She grew up in South Carolina with her father's parents and did not do parties or slacking off because the only way out was through a scholarship. Her dream was to be accepted at Harvard. When that thin envelope came, she had to find another dream fast. She won a scholarship to the International School in London.

The thing about being the scholarship kid in a school of kids from rich families is that blowing off grades for parties is not a risk you can take. Having to borrow dresses that do not fit so you won't stand out and not having anyone to teach you how to put yourself together goes hand in hand with accepting charity from friends to be able to take trips. Maggie is a virgin. It is not a religious thing, it is an I do not want to be working in a clothing store in South Carolina thing. It is also a romantic thing: wanting a real boyfriend who takes you out on dates and is there for you vs. a hookup. Maggie meets two guys who float her boat: One is a bar owner who is older and another goes to school with her, is a cousin to her room mate and goes through women like TP. It is a small school and they keep hitting sparks off each other, but Maggie does not want to be just another one of his hookups. Plus Samar is half French, half Lebanese and destined for an arranged marriage.
