On Dublin Street (On Dublin Street, #1) by Samantha Young
On Dublin Street by Samantha Young
Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare…
Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well—until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core.
Braden Carmichael is used to getting what he wants, and he’s determined to get Jocelyn into his bed. Knowing how skittish she is about entering a relationship, Braden proposes an arrangement that will satisfy their intense attraction without any strings attached.
But after an intrigued Jocelyn accepts, she realizes that Braden won’t be satisfied with just mind-blowing passion. The stubborn Scotsman is intent on truly knowing her… down to the very soul.
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Holy sexy wow.
The one thing I hated was how some characters kept dropping random stuff immaterial to the romance I mean Ph D this and Ph D that blablabla. And while I did enjoy this, didn’t love it mind you. Because while there were one or two WIN moments, over all this is just your typical romance of woman damaged, dead set on not getting hurt again and a guy equally determined to wear her down.
I enjoyed the two of them together especially her and her no nonsense and not too prissy ways and then him and his being…. hot? (heh.) But see, the girl could be too held back sometimes, and the guy could be too alpha as well… then again, I set on this because I needed some fluff. It has fulfilled that and then some because yes, Holy. Sexy. Wow.
