Nora is stuck in a small town in the US when she’s swept offer her feet by a sweet-talking Scotsman. He whisks her from her boring life and for awhile she’s happy. But his possessiveness begins to grate on her and just when she decides she can’t be in this marriage anymore, he’s no longer in the story. Now, she’s left feeling hallow and drifting through life. When Aiden comes along it’s only because of a beautiful, sick child name Sylvie. But maybe, just maybe, she’ll find something with Aiden she never expected. Forever.
Some sections are so vague it actually makes several plot points confusing. Who was the guy in the beginning? (Yes, we eventually find out, but starting with that is unclear). Who is ‘gone’ at the end of chapter six? Okay, it’s quickly discovered who and how but the way it’s written is very baffling. The flashbacks also felt very telling rather than being in the story. Despite all that, I kept reading because I fell in love with Nora. Her personality is addicting and feels so real. Then Aidan comes into the story and I am about blow off my feet. I love the way she writes the accents! Love. Love. Love. There’s some unexpected drama in the story between Nora and Aiden that I thought works really well. It really ups the tension and I love how Nora doesn’t immediately take him back. She really shows her backbone and I am proud of her for that. Also really, really hot in the romance department. Samantha Young is a freaking genius writing romance. I know I called her brilliant before but damn it, it’s so freaking true. The ending is so stunningly beautiful.
I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!
We’re back in Samantha Young’s world for Cole’s story! *grabby hands*
Shannon goes for the bad boys and it’s led her down a terrible path. She’s trying to claw her way out from under her mistakes when she gets a much needed job. She loves the tattoo parlor and the people but for one, Cole. He flirts too much and she doesn’t want another bad boy who’s just going to ruin her life. Again. But when she gives in to one kiss it leads to another and another and another…
This is Cole from the previous book, Down London Road, which you have to read because it’s freaking fabulous. Anyway, Cole is all grown up now and damn did he grow up fine. He’s tattooed and muscular and gorgeous. He had a hard time dealing with his feelings for Shannon, especially since they both said some heated words in anger. But Shannon has a past that she has to deal with and she wants Cole to be the one to do that. The problem is that her family stands in the way. Oh my God, did I love this book. Another huge hit by Samantha Young. I love the chemistry between Cole and Shannon. The heat, the anger, the love. I’m totally going all swoony on you. Sorry. This book is just the epitome of romance and I fell head first into it. This is another Samantha Young book that I had a hard time pacing myself with. Once I started reading I didn’t want to stop.
Must. Read. Give yourself a few hours and sink into this world!
This book is IMPOSSIBLE to put down!
Jo has a drunk mother, absent formerly abusive father and her younger brother to deal with. She’s dating rich guys in hopes of landing one to give her brother a better life. But what about herself? When she’s tempted by the new bartender at work all her carefully laid plans go to hell but when her father makes a violent appearance who will she run to?
Oh. My. God. This book. I want to sink into this book and never come up for air. Yeah, that good. Hell, I may read it again and that’s a huge compliment right there. Jo and Cam, the sexy bartender, have smoking hot chemistry. The problem is, Cam is a jerk to her when they first meet. It’s cute how they go from annoyances to tentative friends to I can’t get enough of you. This totallly sold me on anything Samantha Young writes. She’s freaking brilliant! Cole is an adorable addition to the series. He’s trying to be strong for his sister but he’s also dealing with emotions from an alcoholic mother. Then the father comes back and holy crap, I couldn’t stop reading. I literally read this book in one day, into the night and finished in the early morning hours.
Amazing, mind blowing, must read story!
This is my first time reading Samantha Young and honestly, she blew me away. I’ve already ordered the other books in this series. Yeah, On Dublin Street is that good. Plus, I love Scottish accents.
Jocelyn lost her family in an accident and since then has cut herself off emotionally from everyone. When she rents a place on Dublin Street in Scotland her roommate has a handsome brother, Braden, that takes too much interest in her. But once they start a more intense friendship they both realize this is more than just attraction. It may be love...
Gah, I’m getting all super girly on you but this book is freaking adorable. Jocelyn is scared of loving anyone again because of the pain she went through losing her family. She hates the way Braden is pulling her into his life. Her reluctances is totally understandable and the way he pushes her is beautiful. I love, love, love their romance. It’s sweet and heat with a secondary cast of characters that makes you fall in love with this series. And I haven’t even read the second book yet! (But it’s on it’s way) Amazing start to a series and I am so excited to read more.
On Dublin Street has sass, romance and is something you should not pass up!
