On Dublin Street by Samantha Young

Book summary:

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.

       I always make jokes about my mother and her worshiping of Nora Roberts. All her books seemed so silly and predictable to me. But look at me now, giving five starts to this book, which is predictable and at some parts silly. I can always blame it on bloodline or genetic or something, right?

      You probably aren't used to me reading the adult novels, you expect that from Glass (I blame her, btw *winks* ), but I have my days. This is one of them. First I'll tell you that if you like Easy, Thoughtless, Falling Under, Beautiful Disaster and others then this is the book for you.

       As the title says we're in Dublin this time, Dublin Street to be exact. The story follows Jocely or Joss who moves to Dublin and searching for her apartment she meets one interesting guy in the cab. Trying to forget about him she finds a perfect apartment and a nice and silly roommate. She moves in and few days later in not so comfortable circumstances she meets her roommate's brother who is the cab guy. From that point you could see that somehow they'll end up together. That's the predictable part. Joss likes her relationship with Braden aka the cab guy, cause she doesn't get to attached with anyone. She already lost too much and going through the pain again is not an option. Only problem is when things start to complicate, not only with Braden, but with other people around her. She must break the walls she built years ago but how to find a courage to do so.

        I'm really an easy reader or it's easy to please me. Just give me a book with emotions and interesting story and I'm yours. Samantha gave me that in this book. Now she has a new fan. I hope I'll get a chance to read her other books cause I'm curious.
Until the next time,

  4. I hope you'll both get a chance to read it soon cause it's really good! :)
    Thank you! :)

  5. I sometimes read adult books too. They're actually really good when I do read them. I am the same with my mother and Nora Roberts. She needs to read outside of the box but I've got to say reading one or two of her books wouldn't be too bad.
    Naturally, Charlie looks pretty btw! I would love to read your review when the time comes (:

  6. I've read few Nora's books and honestly after third it gets boring, but my mother has read all translated. She really likes it.
    Oh,. my girl Glass will do that :)

  7. I am super excited to get my hands on this one!! I have seen this EVERYWHERE and heard nothing but great things about it! Plus, I also like cute romance stories with emotions....so I can't wait to see where this one goes! Thanks for the brilliant review Tanja! :)
