My Review Of Saving London by Taylor Dawn

I was asked by the author to review the following book. Hope you enjoy the review and you should definitely put this book on your TBR.

The List. That Signified Finality.
The Journey. That Would Span The Globe.
The Sacrifice. That Would Decide The Outcome. 
The Choice. That Could Unleash Evil On Earth. 
The End Is Only The Beginning...

“You have terminal cancer.”

London Patterson, a seemingly healthy young woman, had her entire life ahead of her. That was until four little words brought everything to a screeching halt. As the shock and grief begin to fade, London decides to map out her last year and embark on an epic journey to complete a bucket list. She wants to do the things she’s been afraid to do in her life, step out of her self-contained box, and see the world. What she didn’t expect was for a mysterious stranger named Adam to breeze into her life like a breath of fresh air. 

Adam offers to help London complete her list on one condition…that she sees it through to the end. Agreeing on those terms, the two set out on an adventure of a lifetime. But London soon realizes that Adam isn’t quite…human. Along their journey odd occurrences happen that cause London to question who or what Adam is and why he’s helping her. 

Follow London as she checks off her bucket list in this inspiring new Urban Fantasy novel from Taylor Dawn.

My Review:
4 Stars

First off I want to say that I loved Saving London. I was intrigued by the blurb, but this book delivered so much more than my expectations.

Reading this book definitely makes you want to live your life to the fullest. There were a couple lines in the beginning of the book that really caught my attention. “Up until the dreaded news, I’d thought life was something to take for granted. That I could wake up every day and be guaranteed tomorrow.”  We all know that nothing is a guarantee and that there could be no tomorrow. This passage was a good reminder of that.

Another part of the story that really jumped out was London’s Bucket List. Instead of just putting random things down, this list felt so real. I honestly felt that it could have easily been someone’s real list. The unexpected part to it all was the man who showed up and offered to help with the list.

A man named Adam shows up at London’s house seemingly lost. When she runs into him the next day he offers to help her accomplish her list. Right from the start there is a feeling that Adam isn’t your typical guy. The way he speaks and what he believes in is far from guys London has encountered before.

Adam also made me a little uneasy. He refused to share his last name with London and also has some strange fears. His being so willing to do what it took to complete the list was really suspicious to me as well. Felt like there was more going on and had me wanting to find out what.

“The only time I’ve ever run anywhere was when a Little Debbie truck drove through my neighborhood when I was six.” This line had me busting out laughing. Just the image alone is something that will make you giggle.
Over all I found the book to be fantastic. There are a few grammatical errors throughout, but nothing that hindered the ability to read and understand the story. The development in both the story and the characters was right on, nothing seemed rushed or really lacking in detail.

I would definitely recommend this book to my friends. I think they would love London and Adam’s story as much as I have. I am still a tad bit sad that the book is over. I really loved the characters and how they interacted with each other.
