It’s my first week as an official student at Kensington School, and things couldn’t be more chaotic. I’m living in a hotel, trying to recover from the news of my parents’ move to London, and working to make things right with Harry, Noah, and Mohammad.

Mohammad says I’m back in the boys’ club.
Harry tells me that he wants me back in his life.
And Noah, well, he’s always been

Fantastic, fun, and oh so satisfying, The Party really hit the spot. I'm so addicted to these books and intrigued by the characters. Mallory, Noah, Harry, and Mohammed have all stolen my heart.

Mallory has been dealing with a ton of whirlwind changes in her life. From the big move, to gearing up to reunite with her parents, it's been a lot. And now she's dealing with Noah... and Harry. Harry needs her more than ever due to some family issues he has going on. Mallory is the best fr

Mallory is beginning to understand more the ramifications of being Harry’s friend. His need to request things of, not just her but their circle of friends is at times really draining. She loves him but sometimes he asks

So excited for the fifth book in this series! We need more Noah and Mallory.

*We received this book in exchange for an honest review.*

After London Prep 4: The Key ended, we found ourselves impatiently waiting for October so we could get more Noah Williams and Mallory James. When we left Mallory, she was celebrating her 17th birthday and still conflicted over her feelings. In London Prep 5: The Party, Mallory finally gets the clarity she has been craving.

It’s the day of the party at Harry Brooks’s

Wow! What an emotionally charged book The Party was!! I’m still so very amazed by how Jillian Dodd knows how to grab you from the beginning of a book and doesn’t let you come up for air. I consumed this book in one single day. It was that good.

In this 5th book we find Noah unrelenting in his pursuit of a Mallory. And thank goodness for that. Their chemistry is simply unreal and soo very sweet. I really can’t believe we will be getting a Book 6 to be honest. I thought this was a conclusion to th

"There is so much peace when he kisses me. You'd think it would be the opposite."


Where hormones run rampant and feelings are complicated.

This series from book one was one I got quickly addicted to, giving me feelings similar to all those CW shows... you know the ones! Where they all look 25 but are actually 16.

Mal thinks she finally knows what she wants, but how will her and Noah ever work?

Wanting to feel "less 30"?
Then this one is for you.

Still a teen

If you love an angsty, coming of age YA story with fun characters mixed in with some complex issues and young love, this series will grab your attention. Soon you’ll be shouting Team Noah or Team Harry. Mallory is learning to navigate her feelings for two of her friends while not hurting anyone else or herself. Meanwhile Noah has stepped up his game and Harry has a ton going on as well. Thank goodness Mohammed is around to keep everyone grounded with his sound advice. WWMD? This book was enterta ...more

I just want to thank Jillian Dodd for showing us some mercy with this one. My anxiety thanks you.

OKAY!! This is the book I have been waiting for!!! We get all the flirty Noah scenes that makes your heart stutter. If you’re not team Noah after this one then all hope is lost with you.
I love Noah sooo much, always have, always will and this book gave me my Noah full.

Oh my gosh, incredible! At the end I found myself shaking my Kindle for more! I didn’t want the story to end! Jillian Dodd has done it once again! She is an amazing story teller. She takes you on a journey, painting you a picture of the story as you read along. You feel like you are right there in the story with the characters. Going on this exciting journey!

Mallory finds herself permanently staying in London (yay), which made me overjoyed as a huge fan of this series! She is navigating her rel

Ohhhhh, the angst. And the drama!
I love these kids. This story just brings me back to the days when you were experiencing first loves and crushes. I was very firmly #teamharry when this story began. I love how confident he is and take pity on him for his family circumstances that you really get a glimpse of in this part of the story. But, at this point, I think I am switching to #teamnoah. This is why I think this is such a great story. It keeps me on my toes and wanting more. I love all the fri

This series is so addictive. If you like drama and angst in a high school setting - this series is for you. The books must be read in order and it is sooo worth this. The Party was everything my #teamnoah heart could’ve possibly wanted.

London Prep is my FAVORITE series and I love it even more with each re-read and each new book.

This is a dynamic series so if you haven't met Mal and the boys yet, start with The Exchange. NOTE: This review contains spoilers for other books in the series.


After Mallory realizes that she is staying in London, she has to repair her relationships with each of her three boys.

The Party picks up on the Thursday morning of Mal's fourth week in London (the day after her birthday) and finishes early aft

I love London Prep. I love Mallory & the boys. I love Noah. That being said I felt like book 5 was more of a build up to book 6. You know how in fantasy books the first book usually doesn’t have too much going on but it’s a lot of story & world building, well I felt like book 5 was like that, all leading up to book 6. It wasn’t really drama filled, super romance filled, or had a whole lot going on so I really feel like book 6 is going to blow my mind with all this lead up. I was kinda hoping the ...more

I absolutely adore this series so far, and this book might just be my favourite one yet! The reason being, I love how in this book, things seemed like they were finally starting to fall into place! (At least things seem to be going in the direction I’d like them to go in, but I suppose that’s a personal preference 😉)
Mallory is still a whirlwind of emotions, and it can be almost hard to keep up with all of her thoughts and emotions at times, but the drama was pretty minimal in this book (at least

This was a fun 5th book in the London Prep series! This book answered questions, mended relationships, brought some HEAT, and left the reader excited and anxious for book #6! Halfway through the book, I was still mentally yelling at Mallory to go with her impulses and kiss the boy! I swear, she worries more about everything as a 17 year old than I ever have in my life! Lol. I’m #TeamNoah and overall I was very happy with the direction of this book. I’m a little concerned about Harry and his cont ...more

Y’all, I am just adoring London Prep.

Also #teamnoah

Anyway, this is a fantastic installment. The vibes with our main quartet (Mallory, Noah, Harry, and Mohammad) are immaculate. I just love them. We also get to see more of Mia, Olivia, and Naomi here, which I was here for.

Being in Mallory’s head gives me anxiety sometimes but it’s because she’s like I am and overthinks EVERYTHING. But it also helps you see her character so clearly. Mallory is growing so much.

Finally, this is what I have been waiting for ... Noah and Mallory exploring their feeling and actually expressing them! If you are not team Noah after this book, you need your head checked. This book was amazing and so worth the wait. I couldn't put it down and devoured it. I was so happy and excited for Noah and Mallory. I was swooning over their newest of them.  I feel so bad for Harry but he isn't right for Mallory. But that ending has me so worried about what is n

I don’t know how Jillian does it, but she manages to write this series where at the end of each book you feel satisfied with the ending but also desperately wanting more.

We left off with Mallory’s birthday and her tense conversation with Noah. Now that Mallory is staying in London she has to figure out how to fix all the relationships that were left broken. Lucky for her, her friendship with Mohammed is still strong and he helps her mend all the broken pieces.

In this episode (I say "episode" because reading these books feels like you are sitting down and watching your favorite teenage sitcom), we finally get to see Harry's family dynamic at work. We also get to finally...finally...see an honest, no emotional game playing Noah. I'll be the first to admit, I'm a Team Harry girl (from day one), but I started to see the appeal of Noah in this book. It took 5 books, but I finally see why all those Team Noah lovers swoon when he comes around. While this bo ...more

I’ve FLOWN through every book in this series so far. I honestly couldn’t stop. I found myself fully invested in these characters’ lives which I think speaks for Jillian Dodd’s excellent writing. I am not typically a fan of love triangles, and this book was the first one in which I found myself annoyed with the love triangle. I’m #teamNoah for certain, and the teaser chapter of the next book has me counting down until April!!

This book was full of angst, flirting, romance and drama. Mallory must make a decision on who she wants to explore a relationship with and decide if she is ready for that relationship. This book was amazing and it gave a lot of answers as to what Mallory‘s new life in London might look like. Stay tuned for book six “The Country House”
