On Dublin Street by Samantha Young

On Dublin Street is the first adult contemporary novel by Samantha Young. This is a big change from her usual YA books, because it is a very ADULT read....wink, wink. This is my first read by her and I can't wait to check out everything else she has written. I love the way she writes and how easy it is to fall in love with her characters.

Four years ago, Jocelyn Butler (Joss) 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.

I absolutely love this story and the way it is written. Joss is very witty and sarcastic, even though she uses it as a shield most of the time to keep people away, she is funny and smart and doesn't take any crap. Braden has his own sorted past and demons to overcome, but he knows what he wants and will do anything to get it. For some reason I went into this book thinking it was going to be sort of Fifty Shades, but it is nothing like that. Yes, it has some HOT and STEAMY parts, but the story will break you heart and make you laugh til cry.
