As they fight their growing attraction, Aimee’s money-making plans soon force Simon into one compromising position after another.

Ultimately, they realize they belong together. But will Simon be willing to risk his career and the family business for her? And if he does, will Aimee finally be ready to open her heart to love?

Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review - Monica Burns
"I've read some good books in the last twelve months, but my favorite has to be Emma Carr's London Falling. When I can still visualize scenes from a book months after reading it, that's illustrates how much I loved a book. Carr created loveable, sassy characters with her crisp writing, and if you love contemporaries I think you'll enjoy London Falling as much as I did. It's my favorite read this year.”

    Couldn't Put It Down...

    I want to begin this review by saying I'm NOT a reader of romances. My genre preferences are something completely different. However, I was scouring BN, looking for NookBooks, when I noticed a book come across the selections list with cupcakes on the cover, and the word 'London' in the title. There were two reasons this book caught my eye: 1.)Cupcakes (which I shall now call Fairy Cakes) are my WEAKNESS. I love them. I even drink a flavored hot tea called "Cupcake Luv". 2.)It has always been a goal of mine to visit London. (In fact, I was searching for books about Tudor London when I found this story).

    I didn't even take time to read the summary. It was completely an impulse buy, and the price was BRILLIANT.

    Well, I was hooked from the first page! The tension between the two characters is well written. I made fun of myself for actually bawling when the characters would come close to letting their feelings be known and then end up backing away from each other.

    The ending was nicely tied up...and I suggest a sequel. A sequel wherein they return to London, she goes to work for the Royals and eventually they start a family. Or maybe that's just me wishing the story would never have ended.

    Take it from someone who doesn't like reading romances, but was drawn to purchase by the cupcakes on the cover: You will not regret purchasing this book.

    Great story and romance that kept me hooked all night!

    I happened upon this book and gave it a try, and I couldn't stop clicking through the pages to see what happened next. The author manages to plausibly get the two main characters connected in a really inventive way, and both the romantic tension and some unintentional comedy keep them together throughout the entire book. I am not a fan of romance novels that defy all logic; of course there needs to be the romance and fantasy--having the Royal Family in the story is neat--but you end up rooting for Aimee and Simon to get together because by the end you have so much invested in their respective characters. Great first novel and hope there's more to come!

    Glad I ventured from my norm!

    I'll admit that my love of Scotties is what first drew me to this book, but it was much more than that, that kept me reading. I fell in love with Aimee and Simom, and had to know what happened with them. This is not my usual genre, but I enjoyed this book so much! I would love to read more from Emma Carr!!

    Such a cute story!

    This story was so cute. You can't help but fall in love with Aimee and Simon. Even Cupcake, the Scottie dog steals your heart. I would recommend this story to anyone who enjoys feel good romances.

    If you have a hard time with illogical details, skip this one.

    I admit it. I have a problem. I find it hard to enjoy a book when it has illogical details. In London Falling, our heroine HAS to get home before she misses two class meetings of the final class she needs for her degree.

    While I am more than willing to admit that there are college professors who would have such a rule and that they would not accept her excuses, it seems that Aimee has a college schedule like no other. Her new class is beginning any day now and the date by which she MUST get home is fast approaching. Sounds logical until you match it up with the dates given. She's stuck in London over Christmas. The friend who might be able to help her is out of reach until New Year's.

    Between myself and my siblings, we've attended and worked for a few dozen colleges and universities in the US. I have yet to find one that starts a new semester or quarter before Christmas. Even more rare would be a school that starts a new quarter before Christmas and has two class meetings before New Year's. Its a stupid detail. I get that, but it is a stupid little detail that bugged me even more as the heroine seemed desperate to do enough illogical things to take my mind off of the illogical premise.

    Epic Fail.

    Fun and surprisingly addictive!

    I don't actually remember buying this book - must've done it late one night after reading the sample. Anyway, I was in the middle of another rather heavy tome that I am compelled to finish because it is the final in a series - but I needed a break from it. Well, what a surprise. London Falling is a delightful book. There is a part of me that wants to see it fleshed out, and a part of me that is giving it the 'first novel' critique, but I am loving it, so perhaps all my imagined improvements would steal some of the fun from it. Great job, Emma. I really hope you continue - and please keep it in an English setting. There's a wee bit of Jilly Cooper in this read - and she is the funniest romance author of all time.

    Don't bother with this one

    What a silly plot. There are so many things in this book that are just plain dumb and illogical. Don't waste your time.

    I love Emma Carr!

    Once I started reading I could not put it down. The description of London makes you feel like you are there with Aimee. The different predicaments she gets herself into are hysterical and it made me laugh out loud. The chemistry between Aimee and Simon is wonderful and you truly hope that they get together. This is one book I will read over and over again. I can't wait for Emma's next book. It's sure to be just as good as London Falling!

    So illogical!

    So many plot points in this book were just way to far fetched for me. I love romance novels and can usually overlook the inconsistencies and the stretching of plots that come with a fun romance novel. But this book just bugged me. I didnt even bother finishing it. The further I read, the worse it got. I wouldnt recommend.

    Amazing first novel

    Amazing especially if (as another reviewer said) you like books either set or about england. Prince William even makes an appearance! Wonderful book about first love with very strong and likable characters

    I loved this book. It was so funny. I couldn't put the book down

    I loved this book. It was so funny. I couldn't put the book down and then I got my mom to read it as well. Then she couldn't put the book down. I would love it if Emma Carr came out with a sequel or just another book. She is now on my top author list. I was drawn to the cover of the book because of the scottie and thought why not. I have told a lot of my friends to read this book and they all loved it. So buy the book you will love it.
