Dublin 1


On Dublin Street (On Dublin Street #1) – Samantha Young


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.


I enjoyed this book.  It is a little slow and anti-climactic but the story is good.  It kind of reminded me of Fifty Shades only insofar as one main character has intimacy/trust issues and the other tries to help, age difference, there’s an “agreement” to how the relationship will work and he’s rich and powerful.  There are several parallels to Fifty Shades.

Both characters are very relate-able and easy to fall for, especially “Braden”.  He is a very sexy character (to me anyway).

The writing kind of felt like I was reading a diary.  The tenses switched every now and then which made it felt like someone writing in a journal.  I kind of liked it that way.

The only thing I could complain about would be that it took entirely too long for the 2 main characters to come together.

It is a very easy read, I finished it in one day.

I would recommend this for adults who like romance.  There is a lot of language and descriptive sex situations.
