You Came for Me

About the book: When Ellie Hansen returns to her mission city of London for one last trip before her internship starts, she’s surprised to find the hotel packed with paparazzi and screaming fans hoping to spot trending pop star AJ Robbins, who’s performing in concert nearby. And when Ellie’s and AJ’s paths happen to cross, Ellie is shocked to recognize the hot celebrity as Austin Robbins, her old high school classmate from Idaho who rose to fame in her absence. Happy to reconnect, the two escape the clamoring crowds to explore the city Ellie has grown to love. But just as their feelings begin to heat up, so do the mobs of fans, making Ellie doubt she could handle the pressures of celebrity life. And when the two witness a horrific bombing on the streets of London, Ellie’s camera makes her an unwitting intruder in the eyes of real mobsters who will stop at nothing to cover their backs.

My Review: Ellie is thrilled to be returning to her missionary stomping grounds of London. She's splurged a bit and got a decent hotel. But on the day that she arrives, there are tons of screaming girls at the hotel and she's uncertain of why. She gets on the elevator to head to her room and runs into an old friend, Austin Robbins. What she didn't realize is that he is the wildly popular singer AJ Robbins and he's the reason for all of the screaming fans. Ellie is thrilled to have a friend in Austin to show some of her favorite places in London, but they are soon interrupted by crazy fans that makes Ellie doubt her place in Austin's life. As they are returning from a jaunt to visit one of the older women that Ellie had made friends with, there is a terrible bombing outside of their hotel. Ellie happens to get a photo of a man, one that the police are interested in as a suspect in the bombing. Word gets out of who took the photo and Ellie is quickly made a target to the terrorists who did the bombing. Can Austin and his friends keep her safe? Is Ellie's heart safe from Austin?

This is a really cute book. I enjoyed the feeling of London, it seemed as though I were there, even though I've never been. I loved the characters, Ellie seemed so real and down to earth, even as Austin's celebrity made a circus of her life and their time together. I loved the danger and suspense that they faced in the book. I really liked the ending. This is a fun book, I can't wait to read more of Sian Bessey's books!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
