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.



Welcome to the wonderful world of ovaries, where every couple of months or so every girl who isn’t into reading romance novels will feel compelled into picking up these said romance novels and revel in their magnificence. Ok, they’re not really magnificent, but some are pretty good. Like this one, for instance.

I was in that time of the month (no, I’m not talking about my period) when I needed mush. And not any kind of mush, I needed the perfect mush. Now, I need to mention that I’m not into reading romances. I’ve tried reading some several times before, and I find it difficult to enjoy them. I need the characters to be original, and their relationships believable.

On Dublin Street offered me exactly what I wanted. It’s not the perfect romance novel, mind you, but Samantha Young managed to create a super-cute couple that managed to entertain me. A lot. And that’s saying something.

I am a bit biased in my score because I really like Sam Young’s work, so you can consider my rating more of a 3-star one. I would have given it the big 5 if Joss wasn’t such a dick at times.

  1. I have heard some really good things about this novel but I'm also super critical of romance novels and have a hard time getting in to them. I think I will give this one a try though just because of that gif!

    1. I guess it was a mood thing so there is a chance it might not work as well with you as it did with me. The gif indeed is compelling,isn't it?
