Alex loves Mark. Mark loves Alex. But is love enough?
Since moving to London from the US, twenty-four-year-old Alex Sinclair seems to have it all: a coveted job writing for the theatre, supportive friends, and the man of her dreams—gorgeous Irish actor, Mark Keegan. But in the year since the acclaimed debut of her play, Alex and Mark’s lives have been turned upside down.
Thanks to his role on a smash-hit British TV show, Mark is catapulted to stardom. Alex couldn’t be happier—until her boyfriend’s popularity and insatiable drive to succeed means they’re apart more than they’re together. Forced to share Mark with showbiz heavy-hitters, intrusive press, and unrelenting fangirls, Alex’s hopes for a stable and committed life with him start to fade. Her struggles with panic attacks, career uncertainty, and Mark’s increasingly worrisome behaviour make her wonder: how much more can she bend before she breaks?
A passionate tale of secrets, loss, and ambition, London, Can You Wait? is the eagerly-awaited sequel to Middleton’s debut novel, London Belongs to Me.
➳A contemporary romance that enhances the knowledge of going out of your comfort zone, and still try to find the balance between what is reality and what you really want…
➳Mark and Alex take a turn of events that at first I thought, “wait a second… should I even try to continue this book?” I DIDN’T WANT TO RUIN THE WONDERFUL ENDING FROM THE PREVIOUS BOOK! However, I kept goin’ and came to a final realization that not every couple out there would be considered THE ideal couple to take an example from. For me, Alex and Mark have marked a place in my heart that brings joy, sadness, contempt, and comfort to the idea of having a partner who understands you through every way.
➳This book has everything that a true person who is looking for in regards to finding the true way to live. Everyone has their own way of living, Alex brings those comforting ideas to a maximum of thrills. To me, she is a character that has individual qualities that not many process, hence why I adore her so much as a strong independent woman that sets the example for many in the literature world, and also in the realistic one.
➳Overall, this was a story filled with passion in regards to finding out what you want to believe, dream of, and strive for it. Jacquelyn Middleton never disappoints and most likely never will in the future to come with her other books.
