Review: On Dublin Street by Samantha Young

Samantha Young has written one of the most emotional, angst-filled, romantic books EVER!! I was hooked from the beginning and couldn’t stop reading! OMG!

Joss is scared of letting people in. She’s scared bad things follow her and will hurt those around her. She’s scared because it will hurt. If not one gets in, then when they get hurt, it won’t hurt her.

Braden is stubborn, sexy as hell and tenacious. He wants Joss from the first moment he meets her and doesn’t give in until he has her.

These two people are beautiful together. Braden is perfect for her. When she runs away from him and others, he chases her down and helps her face her fears. He does it in such a way that she doesn’t even realize he’s doing it. He slowly worms his way under her skin.

Ms. Young did a fantastic job of creating the most amazing characters. They’re flawed, loyal and tenacious. They’re relationships are rocky and imperfect. They fight, they make up, they make mistakes.

One of my favorite things about this book was Joss visiting the therapist. This is one of the few times I’ve read a book where the main character chose to visit a therapist to help her with her issues. I loved the therapist in the book. She was witty and determined to help Joss sort it all out.

Favorite Quote: “Gentlemen are gentlemen in bed. They make sure you’re having a good time.”
“I’ll make sure you’re having a good time, and that you’re okay with everything we’re doing. I just won’t be well-mannered about it.”

Does it get any hotter than that? HELL YEAH!  The heat and electricity between Joss and Braden is tangible. There’s so much sexual tension in the air, you can cut it with a knife. When they do finally get “together” it’s scorching hot! Desk, floor, wall, bed, wherever and whenever they touch it’s explosive!  Mmmmmm……….

Recommendation: Have a box kleenex handy when you read it!
