I feel things. Deeply. More so than most people.

Call it an empathic ability, call it whatever you want. It doesn’t change the fact that I am unable to love…at least not again. When you’ve had everything and lost it, there is no do-over. You can’t repair a shattered heart.

Instead of the pursuit of Mr. Right, I’m forever

Overview

I feel things. Deeply. More so than most people.

Call it an empathic ability, call it whatever you want. It doesn’t change the fact that I am unable to love…at least not again. When you’ve had everything and lost it, there is no do-over. You can’t repair a shattered heart.

Instead of the pursuit of Mr. Right, I’m forever enjoying Mr. Right Now. It’s worked for me the last four years and will continue for the rest of my days.

Then I met him. Collier Stone. My sexy Englishman. He is everything I didn’t need, but can’t deny wanting. His body, his sheer essence calls to that deep place inside me.

Doesn’t matter though. Regardless of how delicious his accent or how intense the chemistry that sizzles between the sheets, the simple fact remains. I will never give him, or any man, what they need from me.

My name is London Kelley and I will never fall in love.

I gave her a try based on an ad. I liked this series. I started with Angel falling and read all three books in the series one after the other. It has good character development, good sex scenes and a good plot.

Angst and Steam - hawt! Favorite Quote: “The fires burned scalding hot without hope of ever being extinguished with London.  I craved her body, her taste and her scent almost like I was genetically predisposed to fall for her.” My Review: Another solid performance from Ms. Carlan for the second in her Falling series.  Each book can be read as a stand-alone, and I fully appreciate that.  I find that I do like continuing to read about the lovely characters I grew to adore in the first book, as they interact and add to the story of the second volume.  This one had more drama, conflict, and angst, which is not my favorite thing in the world, although the writing is of good quality and the story is unique and interesting.  And the sensual scenes sizzzzzle – I swear my kindle was smoking.  I am already looking forward to number three.

5.5 amazing stars This book was given to me for my honest review Get your supply of tissues ready for this heart wrenching journey. “Your taste” lick “It’s like mmmm” lick “the most decadent dessert” Collier to London London-(aka Beauty) smart, beautiful, admirable, sassy, confident and scared Collier-handsome, sexy, hot, sex on a stick and lawyer Tripp-best-friend in love with London James-the only man that London ever loved but has died London is a widow that lives life on the edge. She is a home designer by trade and she admits to sleeping with some of her clients the ones that she sees worthy. With a no-strings attached rule, no sleeping in their bed when the deed is done so is she. Life has been cruel and harsh to this sexy vixen. She has gone through some of the worst that life has to offer her. The love of her life was taken from her after an accident. She vowed to him (James) that she would open up her heart again when the right man came along but to no avail no one has captured her heart or her spirit till she shakes the hand of the man that sends sparks to her entire body. (Collier) Collier is the man that has the golden spark. He is definitely sex on a stick. He has been hurt in the past but does not let the past get the best of him. When he shakes the hand of a beauty all he can think about is the sparks that are going through his body. He knows that this beauty feels it too. But, can he get the beauty? Collier and Beauties journey reminds this reviewer of the story book Sleeping Beauty because of the waking of demons the lie within London. They both feel the feelings that have stayed dormant for so long within each other. But can these feelings that are waking up be the best for both of them? Will the feelings come alive and let them live and love again? The author did was amazing job with this second book in the series the first is Angel Falling. The sex is erotic and blazing hot. You will cry and you will laugh. You will be saying “oh no they didn’t” but they did and you will be erupting in laughter and cries. This author leaves you happy and wanting more. This author gives you everything you could possibly want in a romance book and then some. Major grrr at times but well worth the read. A fantastic anytime read. Oh and let’s not forget you get to go to a wedding. But who’s wedding do you get to attend? You have to pick up the book to find out. This reviewer is not gonna tell you so ha ha ha Happy Reading

Blessed or cursed? That is the question. London Kelley is empathic, with the uncanny ability to read the emotions of those around her; so you would imagine that this would be a remarkable and exciting ability to have.  But tragedy fractured this vibrant woman’s soul; young and in love, fate choose to rip eternal happiness from her grasp, leaving behind only shattered remains. So in light of her past, London decided to live a life devoid of commitment, doing everything in her power to deny her growing attachment to a sexy Englishman named Collier Stone. London is not opposed to casual; friends with benefits sex with this HOT as hell Englishman, but surrendering her heart will never be an option, and she has no problem making that abundantly clear. However, fate isn’t finished with this vivacious, beautiful and exceptionally talented young woman, even knowing that further suffering could mean the demise of her fragile heart; and her sexy Englishman is persistent to a fault, especially when he has forever on his mind. The second chapter of Audrey Carlan’s Falling series is even better than the first, and has this reader eagerly waiting for what’s next to come.

Who doesn’t love a British accent, I could set and listen to it all day. I loved this book the author has grown so much in her writing, I find I can believe every word she wrote. It has hot passion, love, starting over, leaving the past behind and growing, learning along with finding what you need to make the best you. I loved the humor and can totally understand the heat of angry, why they did what they did and how they became one. London isn’t looking for Mr. Right she had him for 4 years and he died. She is just living for them moment with one night stands who will never get close to her heart. There is no way she will let anyone get a piece of her heart just to lose him again, plus she feels she could never find a love like the one she lost. Collier is one sexy Brit that is having his share of one nightstand not really looking for anything until he sees London. One look he knows he must have her, one touch and he knows he will never be the same. He has his hands full trying to get her to agree. The author has grown so much in her writing style from the first book. This book has it all humor, heartache, love lost, new love and she even brings back a few characters from the first book with a story that you will totally love. Can two people who have been through so much get over their past, reach out to each other and find new love that will last a lifetime? I am looking forward to reading her next book Justice Falling (Falling, #3) it looks to be even better then the last two.

 In the writing world you can often tell when an author is introducing their first novel. It is also true that you can tell when an author has listened to her readers and delivers with an even more smashing sequel.   Audrey Carlan has wrapped her writing style around my heart and I was highly impressed. I loved the first novel in The Falling Series, Angel Falling but wanted more emotion.   London Falling delivers just that! It is a story about love lost, gained, and needed. London has empathic ablities and can feel when someone is needed but she never takes time for herself. She dedicates her life to her career.    When she meets Collier Stone it flips her world upside down. Her sexy Englishman is determined to help her find healing and love. Even though London and Collier have a push and shove relationship but he is determined to win her over.   Just when I thought London Falling was your average Happily Ever After a huge twist was thrown at me. I will definitely be reading more and hope to see more of Tripp's story in the future.

Hot, hotter, hottest! Get ready for book two in the Falling series, as smokin’ hot or hotter than its predecessor, Angel Falling. London Falling takes the phrases “sexual tension” and sexual compatibility” to entirely new heights. That light-headed feeling you get after each romantic scene could be a lack of oxygen, they are that intense! Just breathe deep and read on! London Kelley has loved and lost and to this day has vowed never to love again, but to seize the moment when “no strings attached” sex is offered. Successful as a designer, her outward façade of a woman who is strong and confident and always in control is all most people see. When a wealthy and handsome Englishman crosses her path, her shields begin to falter as he breaks down her defenses one kiss at a time. Shaken by the realization that she is may be losing her heart to the very sexy Collier Stone, London’s very foundations begin to rock. Can Collier break through her defenses or will London go running off in a cloud of smoke? A truth London cannot deny any longer comes when Collier’s life is in danger and he needs a miracle to survive. Could she be losing another lover to death? Flat out, Audrey Carlan writes like a steam-powered locomotive on a mission to see how much one’s romantic heart can take. Each scene is manicured, tailored and buffed out to a dazzling shine until that keeps the reader hanging on every word. Entertaining, intriguing, well-paced, and just enough conflict to believe in these characters, Audrey Carlan has done a fabulous job with London Falling. I received a copy from Audrey Carlan in exchange for my honest review.

London Kelley isn't your ordinary Interior Designer. She moves in with her clients for a month to get a feel for what they need. A new bed, a new couch, get laid. She does it all! No strings no relationships and only temporary. It wasn't always like this for London. She had her soul mate. Her happy ending, but he was taken from her and she closed off her heart. Then she met Collier Stone. Will she be able to love again? Will she lose him too? This is a beautifully written story. Two people who had been hurt in previous relationships that caused them to close off their hearts to everyone. Together they have a chance to heal each other and find love again. I loved how the author changed the point of view in her writing. When the scene had important decisions made by a character that character told the story. I enjoyed that, because I was able to get a feel for both there internal struggles rather than just one throughout the story. If you like second chance stories this one is for you.

Smart, sensitive, smutty and fun.  Everyone come closer....start reading Audrey Carlan so you can say you read her stuff from the start.  If you miss that stomach pang, holding your breath, romantic ache from the great romance authors and love the eroticism of FSOG, you will LOVE Audrey Carlan.  This is a second in a series and can be read alone (if you must) because the timeline is intertwined.  This book is head and shoulders above her first book...and I loved the first one.  If I had one criticism, it's from my epic novel, nerd side...please think about writing longer books...I read too fast. :)
