On Dublin Street by Samantha Young was one of those books that has the ability to steal a readers heart from the very first page. Jocelyn had a very troubled past and I had immense passion for her and I couldn’t help but root for her and Braden’s relationship. Haha, to the point where I got a little crazy reading what would happen next.
I’ve always loved books that are set in unique locations and with “On Dublin Street” the reader is transported to Scotland. Jocelyn left the U.S. and ventured to Scotland where she hoped to start fresh and leave her past behind her. This plot point created a good connection for me with Jocelyn. She was a very likable character. Not to mention her and Braden were just cosmically explosive together and I LOVED IT! And the sex, oh the sex! Wow now there’s something sure to get any reader hot and bothered!
If you are a person who likes a story that focuses on new beginnings and new relationships I’d fully recommend this debut book in the “On Dublin Street” series. You will not be disappointed by the characters or the easily readable writing style.
