On Dublin Street by Samantha Young

Goodreads Description:

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.

Mary's Review:

I need to thank Kathryn Grimes from TSK TSK What To Read  for going on and on about this book.  She has just great book taste (and is a wonderful member of the Wolf Pack) that I knew that she would not steer me wrong on this.  I WAS RIGHT ... THIS BOOK WAS GREAT!!

Best part of book:  Hello, Braden!! Braden Carmichael *swoon*  I was warned by Kathryn that this was her "fictional boyfriend"  and I promised not to go after him.  However, I will lust after him (a lot!).  Jocelyn is a young woman with a very sad past, but moving to Scotland to start anew.  After being there for several years she moved to Dublin Street with her new roommate Ellie.  This is where the FUN begins!!! I love the interactions between Braden and Jocelyn.  I love that Jocelyn is very independent and knows herself, but she has to still deal with her past.  Samantha Young really knows how to tell a story.

Not so great about book: This is simple......IT WASN'T LONG ENOUGH!  I mean, Samantha Young  tells a great story and it is a quick read; however, I still wanted more Braden.  Of course, I am a bit selfish!! (hehe)

I would recommend this book to everyone!
