Blog Tour/Review/Giveaway: London Falling by T.A. Foster

It’s London’s senior year and she only needs one class to graduate. She just didn’t expect her final assignment: fall in love.
Communication 224 has a reputation for giving out the most unique projects of the semester. When London James and Beau Anderson signed up for the class they had no idea they would be paired up together, much less spend an entire semester working on their final grade.
Professor Garcia tasks them to produce a study on the hit reality show, Love Match, a show about strangers falling in love on over the top dates. London and Beau decide to debunk the popular show’s fantasy portrayal of romance. Determined they can date the entire semester and not fall for each other, the classmates share blogs about their dates and start a website where everyone can follow their dating experiment. Resisting their growing attraction for one another is harder than they thought.  
London is in for the toughest class of her college career. The headstrong and success-driven student discovers there might be more important things in life than an A. 


My Review
London Falling is based around a Uni project in communications and social media class.Each person was assigned a partner and each pair would be given a different reality show, the students need to use different communication theories that they had learnt in class and put them into play whilst building up their project. You had to somehow rebuild or create similar situations that are shown in the reality show you have been given and then answer the question..How real are reality shows?

'You can't find love if your heart doesn't want to walk the journey.'

London is dreading this class and the strange projects, this is her last class she needs to complete and get an A on so she can pursue her acting dream.She loves drama, acting is her passion and she is totally at home on stage.It's all she can focus on but things start to change when she starts this project with Beau.

Beau is a fun-loving, make-the-most-of-any-situation kind of guy with a hint of bad boy.He is different, a care-free blogger with a mission to complete his senior "bucket list".His blog posts are read by many students and he is somewhat popular with all his connections and getting people to help him out in situations.

London wants to move away after graduation and Beau has his own path he wants to follow.So what will happen when their project is based around a dating show and they have to go out on dates? Is falling in love so simple or will they just end up broken hearted when it all ends?

Reading the synopsis and seeing the ratings,I thought this would be a great read.I liked how this book was different, it really had potential but I felt like a lot of things were missing.And I didn't feel any sort of connection with the characters.There weren't any big moments, twists or something that grasps the reader.

I hated how London was so focused on her acting career and her future and I just wanted to shake her and tell her to wake up, open your eyes and see what is right in-front of you! I wanted to know more about Beau, more about his background I wish they had connected on a deeper level.This wasn't a brilliant book in my opinion but it was okay and there were parts which I found fun and enjoyable.
