Review: Saving London by Taylor Dawn

*Saving London Blurb*

“You have terminal cancer.”

London Patterson, a seemingly healthy young woman, had her entire life ahead of her. That was until four little words brought everything to a screeching halt. As the shock and grief begin to fade, London decides to map out her last year and embark on an epic journey to complete a bucket list. She wants to do the things she’s been afraid to do in her life, step out of her self-contained box, and see the world. What she didn’t expect was for a mysterious stranger named Adam to breeze into her life like a breath of fresh air.

Adam offers to help London complete her list on one condition…that she sees it through to the end. Agreeing on those terms, the two set out on an adventure of a lifetime. But London soon realizes that Adam isn’t quite…human. Along their journey odd occurrences happen that cause London to question who or what Adam is and why he’s helping her.

Follow London as she checks off her bucket list in this inspiring new Urban Fantasy novel from Taylor Dawn.

I enjoyed the story to some degree.  Taylor's writing had me laughing at the snarky remarks of London.  However, the book is predictable.  I could predict the story line from a mile away and saw what was coming before the characters did.  I wanted to shake them at times and yell, "WAKE UP!  How can you not figure this out?"  That was a little disappointing for me.

I would like to know what happened to London's friend, Lilly.  London moves in with Lilly after her diagnosis but once she meets Adam, who helps with her bucket list, Lilly is seen maybe once or twice.  If this is London's only family, is Lilly not concerned?  I thought maybe London would take a trip with Adam for a week or two then go back to stay with Lilly, but it turns out, London and Adam are always together.  Or could it just be that Adam was always near even when she was home with Lilly? Just a little confusion but I over looked it. Like I started out, I enjoyed the story.  This was a nice and different little read for me.
