Book 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.

Editorial Reviews


“This is a really sexy book and I loved the heroine’s journey to find herself and grow strong. Highly recommend this one.”—USA Today’s Happily Ever After Blog
“Young’s voice is riveting and once I opened the book, I wanted to hang a 'do not disturb' sign around my neck until I was finished. This book definitely landed on my 2012 top picks!”—Fiction Vixen
“This book had some funny dialogue, some amazingly hot sex scenes, and emotional drama. Did I mention the amazing sex scenes?”—Dear Author
“This book is fun. Sexy. A little dark. While the hero is extremely dominant, he also shows his softer side just when she needs it.”—Smexy Books
“Every page sizzles when these two get together, but this book is so much more than a hot romp. This book has heart – and lots of it…IF you want a book that will lure you in, grab you by the scruff of the neck and never let you go until you finish reading the last page, then On Dublin Street is the book for you.”—
“Brilliantly written with just the right amount of hotness, sexiness and romance and everything else in between.”—

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow September 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read all of Ms. Young's YA books and enjoyed them, so I knew that I would probably enjoy this one too. I didn't realize I would be so blown away by it. It is very much an ADULT book, not for the YA set. Her writing style transitions very well to adult contemporary romance. It was everything the genre should be. Like the previous reviewer, I enjoyed the fact that the female was standoffish and being chased by the male. It was not a light read; It deals with death, loss and some very destructive behavior. The way Ms. Young wove Joss' conversations with her therapist into the story was very effective and a good technique. The relationship between Joss and Braden was perfectly choreographed, though a little focused on sex. I would have liked to see a little more of Braden's emotions. I thought Joss' character, emotions and reactions were well-written and very believable.

3.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to love this book! September 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
However, at the end of the day, I found myself a bit ambivalent about the whole novel at best. It started off well enough but about the half-way point when all Joss and Braden seem to do was have sex while he obviously wanted something more and she tried to act skittish, I found myself becoming bored and uninterested.

If I could sum up this novel best, nothing really happens and maybe that is the biggest issue I had with it. Don't get me wrong, I can understand all the accolades this book is getting and fair play to the author because she has written an amazing love story. I will eventually finish it but I just became a bit put off by the redundancy of it all. This novel could have easily had about a fourth of its content shaved off and been just as good.

Like another reviewer, I couldn't bond with Joss and I didn't really get that much out of Braden either. I don't know if he was supposed to have a bad boy quality because it was all a bit predictable. Multi-millionaire guy who loves to date blondes finds a woman with dirty blonde hair he is so attracted to, he can let go of all the other money grubbers in his life. Well, Joss is independently wealthy (due to an accident that is best found out when one reads the book) and she has the world on her shoulders. She's outwardly cold but extremely vulnerable and THAT is why Braden was attracted to her from the beginning and never let go. There is something about a vulnerable woman that will get a guy every time and her sincerity didn't hurt her either. She was real so I can understand why he would go through all the effort he did to get with her.

This novel's biggest short coming had nothing to do with the book and everything to do with ME.

This book got recommended to me by multiple readers. Along with so many good reviews on Amazon & Goodreads, I just had to give it a chance. Needless to say, my review falls under the unpopular opinion section and here it goes.

I could not resonate with Joss for one second. She was selfish, self-absorbed and kind of boring. Braden is INSTANTLY lusting after her and we are given NO reason to why. She is definitely a Mary Sue with "hot girl" who doesn't think she's hot syndrome, and sooooooo speshul, with troublesome past to justify her current thoughts but the problem arises when her inner thoughts DO NOT match her actions. Conveniently, her life is FILLED with good people, good friends in an environment anyone could dream about, yet does whatever she possibly can to sabotage all of it without any real, legitimate reason.

Braden. Oh boy. Where to start with him? He is the classic alpha male - confident, sexy, bad boy player type who LOVES to control Joss in every way he can. Like I said earlier, her inner thoughts do not match her actions. She thinks he's dangerous and will definitely stay away from him, calling him arrogant and egotistical so many times in the book, yet the first time he wants to have sex with her, she is more than willing. Their "romance" is instant. No build up, no tension, no nothing. The chemistry is there, I agree, but the road to it all fell flat. First two sex scenes were kind of hot and steamy, and then it got so repetitive. Can someone get an adult diaper to this woman? "Drenched panties" was mentioned MORE than once. It was very annoying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot and Compelling Romance September 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Samantha brings on the sexy with her first adult romance! Braden is wealthy, attractive, and has a tendency to be a bit of an overbearing ass. Joss is beautiful, sassy, and completely messed up emotionally. Together they make a couple who isn't just hot, but also interesting. I love the way Samantha slowly reveals the details of their past, building her trust with the reader as Braden and Joss built their trust with each other. And the bedroom scenes... *fans self* Any doubts as to whether a YA writer could make an adult novel steamy enough have certainly been laid to rest!

2.0 out of 5 stars meh October 3, 2012
By Tara
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had high hopes. I couldn't relate to the main character AT ALL. I don't get knowing, talking about it with your therapist, and mulling it over in your head constantly, the fact you are hurting people and doing it anyway? The amount of times Braden called her "babe" was really over the top. They made a joke of couples doing that in the comedy The Office once between two characters. It wasn't laughable in this, just annoying.

I don't mind books with sex but it really wasn't that good and too much of the f word associated with it. Icky crude for two people in love...even if they weren't admitting it at the time.

I also have a hard time with rich people having roommates. That's just me. If you are independently wealthy why on earth would you put an ad out to live with a stranger? I don't know? It's a shame but I just got frustrated too many times to recommend this one.

Lots of grammatical mistakes, too. Though I try to ignore that these days since it seems to be rampant!!

This falls under the just okay category. I found the protagonist, Jocelyn annoying, bratty, and whiny and Braden to be much more endearing.
