It's the last week of my exchange in London, and my flight leaves on Saturday.

I’ve adjusted. I’ve taken someplace unfamiliar and made it into a home. And I think that’s special. It’s really special.

I am so obsessed with Jillian Dodd’s ‘London Prep’ series! These are books you won’t be able to put down- and the third one is the best one yet!

Mallory has been in London only a few short weeks but she’s made memories and friends to last a lifetime. It’s hard to believe her time is coming to an end, and to be honest, she wishes it wasn’t. She needs m

So I went into this thinking it was the last story in this series, spoiler alert it isn’t!

Okay, so it’s Mallory’s last week in London. Her feelings for Harry are growing each day and the tension between her and Noah is growing at the same rate.

Harry is going through all sorts of things with his family and his moody moments are upsetting for Mallory, she wishes he would open up to her more and stop making her feel like she isn’t important to him. Having said that, they do have some really sweet

There's a scene that I love in this book where Helen (Noah's mom) and Mallory (main character) are talking. Helen says: "You’ve cracked into the hearts of my boys." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And I hope that Harry and Noah and Mohammad have cracked into your hearts too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I absolutely love these British boys and writing their very distinct personalities. I hope that you fall in love with them, with Mallory, and OF COURSE with London too!

“Romance is …romance. It’s different for everyone...But romance also means support. It means helping someone when they struggle. It can be anything from doing the dishes to a slow, unexpected kiss.”

Here we are on week 3 of Mallory being an exchange student in London and I'm still a little speechless over that JAW DROPPING ending. But this book was absolutely amazing. It was SO ANGST-filled I thought my Kindle would explode. 

I can also say without a doubt I am 100% Tea

I genuinely do not know how to move on with my life at this point. The ending has be an emotional wreck, I don’t want to read and anything else, and I would likely trade a vital organ to read book 4 right now.

“You can’t contain a storm. You just have to let it run its course. If it consumes you in the process, well, it will be a beautiful ending.”

OH. MY. WOW!!! Jillian Dodd is a queen of YA romance, a strong leader in this genre. The masterful writer, Dodd, continues to wow me with her magical words. Breathtakingly beautiful, angst-bleeding, and passionately told, the third installment of the London Prep series is PURE HEART-POUNDING PERFECTION! Young adult romance at its best!!! This tale turned me

I could NOT put this one down! My emotions have emotions. I don’t know how she does it but Jillian knows how to make a girl swoon. And THAT ENDING! Cliffhanger I was not expecting but loved every minute of it.

If you've read book two, then you KNOW how it ends. Book three picks up with the last line! 👏🏼THE. 👏🏼LAST. 👏🏼LINE! 😱

It is the final week of Miss America's exchange in London. CRYING! 😭 Harry Brooks is still smitten and Noah is fond of Mallory too. Harry wants their relationship to progress; however, is he truly ready? He's got a first class ticket on the hot mess express 🚂 regarding his f

Ohhhhhhhhhh MY GAWWWWD.
How can it end like that??!?!?!?!?!?!?
Loving this story so much and I adore these characters. I don't want Mallory to go home.
I want her to stay in London so we can see more adventures with all of these kids.
This installment of the story really allows you see more of the depth of what the family life is like for all the boys. It was nice to see Mallory spend more time with Mohammed and she really just says yes to any new experience. I'm tired thinking about all that she'

I cried multiple times during Mallory’s last week in London. I didn’t even expect to be so emotionally caught up in her angst-filled drama between Harry and Noah. I really loved all of the tender moments between the guys and Miss America. Especially with Mohammad and his sisters. The Williams family is so grounded and Helen is really one of my favorite mothers ever. I don’t want to say much more because I want the reader to really immerse themselves in this last week.

Maybe I’ll write a review once I pick up the broken pieces of my heart that got torn out and stomped on. Till then I’ll be in my room crying because I don’t know how to live after that ending.

London Prep
Book 3
By: Jillian Dodd


REVIEW ☆☆☆☆
I'm drawn to the setting of the story. London is a lovely place for a romance. London Prep Book 3 is not the final word it seems. Everything I anticipated was here, teen angst and drama, one girl and too many guys, some humor and sassyness, and there you have it. I was totally entertained and engaged with the characters and their relati

I am still #TeamNoah. There was so much drama in this book. And as always I am holding my breath and waiting on the next book. I can’t wait to find out what happens in the next book. I don’t want this series to end. Love the friendship between Mallory and Mohammad. Now I wish I was a foreign exchange student when I was younger 😢. This series is a must read. I love everything that Jillian Dodd writes.
Nikki Swope, nixreadsromace
3 books into this clever series and I am still very firmly planted on #teamnoah. He is everything a smart teen girl could ever want and need (despite them living in two different countries). I do not understand why Mallory is holding onto Harry. He is an awesome guy but he is NOT ready for a relationship with her and he is, quite frankly a adorable disaster.

I cannot wait to see who she ends up with. This is reminiscent of my teen days watching Passions and wondering who Ethan is going to pick,

Y’all. This series has been my hands down FAVORITE YA books, and this third one did not disappoint!!! It’s not a small book and I read it in 24 hours that’s how much I could not put it down! Jillian did it again with an insanely entertaining, have to see what’s next, dying when it’s over read! I finished this one then immediately asked when book 4 was coming out!

Jillian does an AMAZING job with all of the characters. I can imagine writing a love triangle has to be very difficult making sure eve

I’ve been team Noah since the beginning of the series. While we still don’t know how the series is going to end, this book answers a ton of our questions and more Drama!! If you’ve read the first two you’re going to love this next installment. If you’re new to the series go get book one and get started. You won’t be disappointed.

Wow. I’ve never been so frustrated by a fictional relationship so much in my entire life. I LOVE Noah. I don’t even know how to sum up my feelings because I’m just so Ughhh over that ending!! I need the next book right now because how can it end like that?! I want to cry and laugh at the same time. And let’s talk about Mohammad because he’s seriously just the sweetest best friend. His character adds so much warmth and cuteness to this story.

Drama...drama...drama...Book 3 is FULL if it! Mallory finds herself stuck between a rock and a hard body in this book. She makes her decision on which boy she wants a future with, but then someone decides they want something more...or do they really? This book gives you more of the chemistry that Noah and Mallory can not deny. It also gives you a more serious, and seriously troubled, Harry. What will Mallory do with only one week left in London? This book proves one thing she will do...find dram ...more

From fighting to going to London to Mallory feeling like it was more of a home than New York. I though book two broke me at the end. The last words of book two follow right into book three where you get a full on Mallory melt down.
This is Mallorys last week and her feelings for Noah and Harry become more confusing each day even though BOTH try and push each other away and be friends.
Harry is precious and sweet but he needs to handle everything with his family before bringing a girlfriend and h

Mallory is by far one of my favorite Jillian Dodd characters. She’s fun, relatable, and this book will have you on pins and needles. I mean, going to London? Meeting got boys? Her adventures across the pond are not something to miss!
Kris (frantic4romantic)
Ah! What a way to end that book.

I won’t lie. The back and forth between Noah and Harry was starting to get to me, but here I am again. Eating it all up with a big old spoon.

I love the progression this story has made and already can’t wait until the next book comes out.

Team Noah, forever!

This book is amazing as Mallory’s time in London is coming to a close she has an important decision to make. On the one hand she has Harry Who says and does all the right things but who she feels pushes her away at all the right times. Then there’s Noah with whom she is obviously attracted to but feels that she cannot act on it because of Harry. As the time dwindles down for her departure back home new feelings are brought to the surface, And Mallory makes two decisions that could impact her fut ...more

I received an ARC of this and... I have no words. I need the next book to come out like yesterday.

The Mallory, Noha, Harry love triangle gives me both all of the feels and all of the anxiety. I can't say much because I don't want to give anything away... but WOW. The cliffhanger. The last day. The angst. Just everything. It was so good.

There is also a reference to the Keatyn Chronicles which I was so excited about! (If I am wrong here I'm going to feel silly, but...)

Mallory‘s time in London is coming to an end. It‘s her last week with Harry, Noah and Mohammend. And what a week it is!

Filled with Drama, new friendships and alot of friendship. Mallory struggles with the reality of leaving. Her relationship with Harry is getting very serious and her friendship with Noah finds some bew struggles.

The ending was briliant! So much drama I didn‘t see coming. A great YA story from the first book on until now.
