I loved this book so much and Brendan is a alpha male in all his glory....... He can compete with Gideon Cross and Christian Grey.
This is a story about how a person can learn to only depend on oneself because you're left alone with no one to care for you. When you get used to depending on yourself it's hard to let anyone else in and care for you.
The story is so soul wrenching, it's like someone took a knife to my soul and opened it up. I felt so close to the characters it was almost scary.
All the anxiety and feelings Joss is struggling with comes very close in the way the author describes it, if you never had a anxiety attack before you will be closer to understand how it is by reading this book. Because I know what it's like to have anxiety attacks I feel very connected to the character.
I love the writing style because it's light and fun without messing with the serious issues in the story. I laughed, scowled and cried of this book.
This author is now on my list of favourites. If you haven't read this one I recommend it strongly.
The prologue had me from the get go and from the moment I met, I mean Jocelyn met Braden I was swooning. I was still new to the whole alpha male characters when reading this story and YES Braden Carmichael made me fall in love with that type of character. He was domineering and possessive, but always kind and loving with Jocelyn.
Poor Jocelyn had suffered so much in life, so it was hard for her to let her walls down and get close to someone.
This book had passion, sexiness, love and heartache. I loved every single minute of it!!
The backstory was alright, but Joss' tragic past seemed contrived with its heaping miseries. The psychological premise, that her grief and guilt would lead to fear and withdrawal was a valid one. In this case though, Joss is such a slow learner, even after seeing a therapist.
The friends she's surrounded with are too good to be true, as is her love interest, Braden. They are all a bit cardboard, and the storyline respecting Ellie could be seen coming well beforehand.
The steamy sexy scenes are pretty well done, but my inability to admire or relate to Joss rendered them flat and predictable.
I found I was jumping paragraphs thoughout the book, just to be done with it. This is another case of being taken in by the many 5 star reviews of a self published writer. In the end, I found On Dublin Street unappealing and cannot recommend it.
Boy was I wrong! I love this book so much. I loved the characters! I loved loved loved the writing. I felt like the author wrote for these characters exactly how people actually talked. I laughed many times at the things Joss (main female character who is American)said. Cracked up when she was asking Braden (main male character who is Scottish) what are knickers anyway and he admitted that the word panties is much sexier than knickers. Or when at the family dinner Ellie (Joss' room mate and Braden's sister) called Adam (Ellie's love interest)an arse and Elodie told her not to say arse in front of the children "Would everyone stop saying arse!" and Joss said "I know, It's called an ass people, Ass." lol There was lots of Joss humor which I just loved.
I loved loved Braden. In fact, he actually be my new fav. He was amazing! He was alpha but not psycho alpha or completely damaged alpha...just good alpha. Again I loved the writing for his character as well. I guess I just loved the writing.
I'm not sure there is a con to this book but if I had to find one I would say that it was killing me how much Joss pushed Braden away or how she wouldn't open up to people even her best friends, but I guess a story needs some angst so there was the major angst. Maybe if you were looking for bdsm you might be disappointed as well in this book. There were great sex scenes but definitely tamer than 50 Shades or Bared to You. That being said this book still had a fair amount of hotness to it.
If you have been thinking about reading this book get it now...don't put it off, you'll be glad you did.

This read started slow for me as I really didn't like Braden that much in the beginning (too much ego, too much alpha, and too much of a player, lol) and...Read more
