Review: On Dublin Street by Samantha Young

October 6, 2012
Title: On Dublin Street
Author: Samantha Young
Published: Self; August, 2012
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Suspense, Adult
Four years ago, Jocelyn Butler left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Edinburgh. Burying the grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without any real attachments has worked well for her so far but when Joss moves into a fantastic apartment on Dublin Street, her carefully guarded world is shaken to its core by her new roommate's sexy older brother.

Braden Carmichael is a man who always gets what he wants. And what he wants is Jocelyn in his bed. Knowing how skittish Joss is concerning any kind of relationship, Braden proposes a sexual arrangement that should satisfy the intense attraction between them without it developing into anything 'more'. An intrigued Jocelyn agrees, completely unprepared for the Scotsman and his single-minded determination to strip the stubborn young woman bare... to the very soul.

Samantha Young. I Love You. Period.
     On Dublin Street is a debut book for the author in the adult genre, and she has hit the mark with this one. I don't know why I haven't read this sooner because it was just Perfect. I had everything a great book should have, and it is going in my unforgettable reads. The story was suspenseful, the pace was brilliant, the writing was absolutely captivating, but the best were the characters. I love love love Braden. I don't think I've read anyone quite like him; he is charming, cocky at times, very very HOT, extremely Alpha, has an accent (*swoon*), and is not a player. He is like the next Ren for me. If you know me, then you know how much I've obsessed over Ren from Nightshade series, and now Braden has took his place. That's how much I loved him.

     Jocelyn moves to Scotland from Virginia after her family dies in a car accident. She has a past which is kept from us throughout the book, and the author provides us with little snippets here, and there. That was the suspense part, and it was done amazingly. I loved how her character transformed from a locked up person to someone who can share her feelings. She was one of those people who are happy on the outside, and don't really talk about the real issues or try to bury it. I can relate to that, and that was one of the reasons I liked her instantly. One of the favorite scene was when she meets Braden in her apartment the first time. Loved that part, well besides all the scorching sex scenes. Holy scaramboly! There were a lot of them, and every single one was HOT. I was literally counting how many places to do it. Braden & Jocelyn were a perfect couple. Their relation was angsty, passionate, spicy yet they both had their emotional moments, and those were the best parts.

     On Dublin Street is by far my favorite romantic suspense this year, and that's saying a lot. I can't even tell you how much I loved it. This is one book I'll be rereading a lot. I wish the author would write more about them, or some other character because I really want to visit them again. On Dublin Street is strongly recommended for someone looking for a swoon-worthy romance with realistic characters.
