I loved this book because for once the h is not starstruck and blindly in love with the H. It was a book about healing, moving on and falling in love. In a lot of romance novels most of the plot is about how hot the h/H are for each other. Although I must admit sometimes the h was a bit stubborn and annoying but the H makes up for it by being so great.

Let me know what you guys think?

Ive been trying to decide if I want to purchase this. Is there alot of sexing in it? Is the guy possessive of the h?

I loved this book! Yes, there's a decent amount of smexing and the H is very possessive of the h, even when she doesn't want that. He's into her from the beginning and she's very wary of starting something.

loved it too and I am difficult to please with the lastest best sellers.

As I've said before, I hope the author has her head down and is busy churning out the next one as we speak :-)
This has been one of my favourites from a new author recently.

If you haven't read Kristen Ashley's books I recommend her. However it feels like most KA addicts discovered this one after KA.

@ kiss04bam

There is sex but it is not overwhelming there is a normal amount it doesn't take away from the story. The guy is very possesive but not in a way that makes you want to slap him.

Spoiler!!
He helps her a lot because she is still broken about her family and best
friend dying. She tries to break up with him several times but he doesn't let
her. She also tries to make the relationship as emotionless as possible but again
he doesn't let her.

Thanks, I will definitely be buying this once Im done with Fifty Shades of Grey.

Posted on Sep 14, 2012, 10:26:20 AM PDT
"On dublin Street" is def good. Its well written, which i can't say for Fifty Shades of grey....Anyway Kristin Ashley's "Law Man" has a similar feel to it.It's def worth looking into.

Savannah can you tell me what you didn't like about how 50 shades was written? I loved the book from beginning to end which is unusual. But I will say that I probably don't know a well written book when I see one. LOL
Thanks
Penny

Im about 90% into On Dublin Street. Overall I like it, but sometimes I just want to shake Jocelyn.

not savannah... but what annoyed me about 50 shades and that is the reason I tought it was not well-written and that hindered my enjoyement of the story ( I tought the idea of the book great, the medium of delivery not so good) is that it was too repetitive. Over and over and over again the same thing said in different ways and sometimes not so different. As a result I got bored and had to skip a lot to get through the story.

Posted on Sep 26, 2012, 7:24:15 AM PDT
there was some over the top or cheesy use of vocabulary too

That repetitiveness is unfortunately the nature of most fanfics I've read. Because they come out almost like serials, there is a lot of repeating and recapping. The really good authors actually go through and edit that stuff before publishing it, others just change out names and locations and sell sell sell.

Posted on Sep 26, 2012, 7:27:21 AM PDT
as a result for me it was neutral 3* books. On dublin street , on the other hand, was well written. It flowed, kept me turning the pages.

Somi, it's against Amazon TOS to self-promote.

In regards to the OP, you should check Chelle Mitchiter's website for Evelyn Vine, Be Mine. Two college age students, Evie is quiet and has a large family that causes issues with her relationship with Grant.
Similar to ODS in that it focuses on building the relationship, while the two have a relationship.

That's the first chapter and the story is available on her website.
http://chellemitchiter.webs.com/
You do need to register and I'd send her a facebook message telling her you've heard about EVBM and are interested in joining the site. She doesn't always check it regularly, so sending her the message will probably speed up your application.
