Book Review: On Dublin Street by Samantha Young


New Adult > Contemporary

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.


…Well hello, Braden Carmichael. 😀

So it was not as good as I thought. But it was not terrible, either. On Dublin Street is sexy yes, but Jocelyn‘s endless chatter on how she cannot move on is just so… ugh. Gimme a break, Jocelyn. Here’s a hot guy throwing himself at you to be your Knight in Shining Armor, and yet… you still suffer. (Such a drama queen, LOL.)

Thank goodness Braden has a little bit of personality; her sister too. Plus it’s really easy to read, I breezed through it. Brandon’s family and the relationships felt so good. And let’s not forget those hot, hot scenes. *fans myself* I liked that they are not too long, or too short – those smokin’ parts. You know? Too long, and it’s all I remember from the book; too short and I’m disappointed that it did not deliver what it advertised. It’s just right, so yeah, this one’s okay.

Other than that, there’s nothing extraordinary about On Dublin Street. It even turned too sappy for me in the end.
