Four years ago, Jocelyn Butler left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Edinburgh. Burying the grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without any real attachments has worked well for her so far but when Joss moves into a fantastic apartment on Dublin Street, her carefully guarded world is shaken to its core by her new roommate's sexy older brother.
Braden Carmichael is a man who always gets what he wants. And what he wants is Jocelyn in his bed. Knowing how skittish Joss is concerning any kind of relationship, Braden proposes a sexual arrangement that should satisfy the intense attraction between them without it developing into anything 'more'. An intrigued Jocelyn agrees, completely unprepared for the Scotsman and his single-minded determination to strip the stubborn young woman bare... to the very soul.
Contains strong adult content. For readers ages 18+
On Dublin Street is her first adult contemporary novel and it did not disappoint. Although, I didn't really think it would to begin with. In fact, it actually turned out to be better than what I expected. And let me tell you, I had high expectations. I just absolutely love the way Samantha Young can tell a story!
When I started reading On Dublin Street I never expected to laugh as hard as I did. Braden and Joss complimented each other in every way. From the very first time they meet, I was rooting for them. You could feel the chemistry between these two with every word. Their relationship felt real.
Joss was a broken character, but not weak one bit. I found her to be too stubborn at times, but it fit the story well. I don't really know what to say about Braden except that I love a man who isn't afraid to take charge and fight for what he wants. He was smart, funny, daring, and hot all in one.
I was happy with the beginning, middle and ending of this book. I have no complaints at all and think that those who love to get lost inside of a good romance novel should definitely pick up On Dublin Street. It will give you butterflies, make you blush, and laugh until you have tears in your eyes. You will find yourself stuck to your reading spot for hours! You will not be able to stop reading it until you are done. Picking up one of Samantha Young's books is like candy. You can't have one piece and stop there. She is a great writer, a great story teller and her stories are always entertaining.
I cannot wait to see what Samantha writes next!
5 out of 5 stars!
