WhatHappensinLondonWhat Happens in London (Adventures Abroad #1)
by Jen McConnel

Sarah landed in London, just hoping to leave her home behind and escape her family. But she didn’t plan on falling headfirst into Carson’s arms.

Get ready for a summer of self-discovery and romance in the first of the New Adult novella series, Adventures Abroad!

Praise for What Happens in London:

“Travel through London with Sarah, you’ll squee, laugh and swoon at her adventures, I know I did!”- Lisa Burstein, author of Sneaking Candy

โ€œI wish Carson could see me,โ€ the words slipped out, but then I flushed.
Joelle cocked an eyebrow. โ€œWhoโ€™s Carson?โ€
I shrugged, my face hot. โ€œJust a guy I met here in London.โ€
I waited for Joelle to tell me I was being stupid, but she just looked thoughtful. โ€œWant him to come with us tonight?โ€
I shook my head hurriedly. โ€œNo, heโ€™s at work.โ€
โ€œHe wonโ€™t work all night, will he?โ€
I hesitated. โ€œTrue. Do you think the other girls would mind?โ€
Joelle grinned. โ€œWe can always ask them.โ€
Before I could stop her, sheโ€™d called out, โ€œLadies, any objections to Sarah bringing a man?โ€
I tried to shush her, but she was laughing. Rachel looked up from curling her eyelashes. โ€œSure,โ€ she said with a smile, โ€œask him if he has any friends!โ€
Oh God, this was getting out of control. โ€œI donโ€™t really knowโ€”โ€
โ€œDo you have his number?โ€
Mutely, I shook my head. Joelle eyed me critically.
โ€œBut you said he has to work. Do you know where he works?โ€
โ€œThe bookstore in Piccadilly Circus,โ€ I answered automatically, and Rachel grinned in triumph.
โ€œOh, ladies,โ€ she said loudly, โ€œwho wants to hit the books before we go out?โ€
I gave up trying to talk them out of it once we were on the Underground, but when we got to Piccadilly Circus, I tried one more time.
โ€œWhat if heโ€™s busy?โ€
Rachel gave me a playful shove. โ€œThe least you can do is ask.โ€
We headed to the bookstore, but when I tried to linger on the sidewalk, Joelle grabbed my arm and led me forward. โ€œDonโ€™t chicken out now!โ€
The girls were giggling as we entered the store, and I realized that the customers were staring at us with interest. Horrified, I suddenly remembered that we were all dressed for the club. No wonder everyone was staring; I didnโ€™t think halter tops and glitter were customary bookstore apparel.
Feeling naked, I crossed my arms as my eyes darted around the cash registers, searching for Carson, just as a familiar voice called my name. I swiveled around to find him standing behind us, carrying a pile of books.
His eyes traveled up and down my body, and I felt my skin heating up. Casually, Carson set his books down on the counter and stepped forward.
โ€œTo what do I owe this pleasure?โ€ His eyes were dancing, and suddenly, I didnโ€™t feel so self-conscious.
โ€œMy friends and I are going out tonight,โ€ I began. I coughed, clearing my throat. โ€œThey wanted me to ask you, um, if you wanted to come along.โ€
โ€œAnd bring your friends!โ€ Rachel added loudly.
Carson glanced at her with a grin and then brought his eyes back to me. โ€œSounds like a good idea.โ€ He took a step closer and whispered in my ear, โ€œIf I werenโ€™t at work right now, I wouldnโ€™t be able to keep my hands off you.โ€
