London, Can you Wait? by Jacquelyn Middleton

Alex loves Mark. Mark loves Alex. But is love enough?

Since moving to London from the US, twenty-four-year-old Alex Sinclair seems to have it all: a coveted job writing for the theatre, supportive friends, and the man of her dreams—gorgeous Irish actor, Mark Keegan. But in the year since the acclaimed debut of her play, Alex and Mark’s lives have been turned upside down.

Thanks to his role on a smash-hit British TV show, Mark is catapulted to stardom. Alex couldn’t be happier—until her boyfriend’s popularity and insatiable drive to succeed means they’re apart more than they’re together. Forced to share Mark with showbiz heavy-hitters, intrusive press, and unrelenting fangirls, Alex’s hopes for a stable and committed life with him start to fade. Her struggles with panic attacks, career uncertainty, and Mark’s increasingly worrisome behaviour make her wonder: how much more can she bend before she breaks?

My Thoughts 
This is the long awaited sequel to London Belongs to Me.  Alex and Mark make the most adorable couple.  And they are madly in love, what more could they ask for?  Their life should be a fairy tale right?  WRONG!
Mark is an actor and Alex is a playwright.  With Mark's crazy hours and being gone for weeks on end, Alex begins to wonder if this is the relationship she signed on for?  With no talks of marriage, is it really going anywhere?
Personally I think Mark takes Alex always being there for granted.  He needs to put her first at times - take time off, say no every so often, whatever it takes.
She's not one to want to always share Mark with the world and his crazy fans!  And how is this all helping her panic attacks?  Lets just say they are getting worse but she has decided to hide it from Mark and try to cope on her own.
Will their fairy tale survive or will their relationship go down the dumps instead of into history? 


Drink Selection
With it being fall and all, we are going to go with Boozy Apple Cider.  I mean, YUM!

Rating
I loved this sequel just as much as the first, if not more!  5 wine glasses for sure!
