The final quarter of the novel is a jumbled up mess of cheap emotional punches, emotional and illogical flip-flopping, and forced drama, all in the name of dragging the action out a few more pages. Joss renamed Jocelyn by the romantic hero despite her repeated protests — because lack of respect is sexy is the proto-typical messed up perfect girl — beautiful, snarky but only when convenient, with a traumatic past that conveniently keeps the family out of the scene Disappearing Parent Syndrome strikes even in adult romance and absolutely no financial worries.

We frequently hear about her big breasts and panic attacks but that is the extent of her characterisation. These scenes also felt slapdash at best. Joss is also an incredibly judgemental character, particularly in regards to other women. Fortunately for Joss, the author is equally as judgemental towards these women, who are all automatically characterised as gold-digging selfish whores. The class element of this really got to me — Dublin Street is part of a rather wealthy area of Edinburgh, and Joss works in the nearby George Street.

Braden is a nasty piece of work. Braden, of course, has frequent bouts of temper that manifest as violence, and these are far too quickly swept under the carpet for my liking. None of those things are okay. None of them have a place in a trusting relationship. The fact that we continue to normalise such things as romantic terrifies me.

We must take these small pleasures where we can. My thanks to Edelweiss for the ARC. View all 10 comments. Jesus C! You read that correctly. Braden Carmichael had my "knickers" in a twist from the moment his sexy Scottish accent entered my life Jocelyn "Joss" Butler is trying to escape a tragic past. She is private, she doesn't get close to people, she doesn't speak about her family or friends, and is perfectly fine keeping it that way. Joss needs to find a new place and as luck would have it, she answers an ad for a place on Dublin Street which brings her to Ellie.

Ellie is fun, beautiful, kindhearted, eccentric and easy to get along with. I personally fell in love with Ellie upon meeting her. Maybe it's the way she looks or talks that fools people into thinking Ellie's fragile.

I know different. Ellie can take the bad stuff and bounce back better than anyone I know. Of all the dumb luck. You think you run into a hottie and are done with it? Not for good old Joss.

Throughout the book, we are taken back and forth through Joss' inner turmoil of her past and how it has affected her.

On Dublin Street

We also have a very perceptive Braden who seems to be able to read her very well and call her out on her bullshit. It is definitely not what she bargained for I think you've made an art form out of deflection and self-possession. Braden, oh Braden. He can work with that. He is as possessive as he is sexy and it is HOT. He took a seething step toward me. You should be. It wasn't all dirty talk and possessiveness although I would be okay with that too , as with any "relationship" you argue and you banter There were so many highlight worthy moments in this book.

On Dublin Street was a brilliant mix of passion, love, and trust. How does one deal with inner demons? Jocelyn was taken on a personal journey of how to overcome all of her insecurities and doubts with Braden being a big player in helping her do so.

No matter the ups and downs, curve balls will always at some point be thrown your way But life wasn't a Hollywood movie. Shit happened. You fought, you screamed, and somehow you worked like hell to get out the other side still intact. This book would get WAY more than 5 stars if I could, it is easily one of my favorite books!!

In friendship or in love, the two side by side raise hands together to find what one cannot reach alone. A year later, she lost her best friend to a broken rope and a reckless river. She finds herself on Dublin Street, hailing for a cab, on her way to meet a potential room-mate. And once again, her life changes on a dime.

But in a very, very different way. On a rare sunny day in Scotland, on a very crowded Dublin Street… Braden comes face to face with Jocelyn. So he makes an arrangement: Just sex. Whenever we want. No strings attached. Because she knows just too well what happens when you get attached to people. They disappear. His lips skimmed my ear. During the three months, Jocelyn finds herself falling for Braden. It happens without her knowing. It happens during those lightning smiles, between the merciless laughing and teasing, behind the first time he holds her hand.

Jocelyn finds that Braden is taking down all her walls faster than she can rebuild them. And again. Until he wears her down. Until she falls in love with him. Because she will. Aug 31, Aestas Book Blog rated it really liked it.

Almost 4 stars "I know you love me, Jocelyn, because there's no fucking way I can be this much in love with you, and not have you feel the same way. It's not possible. I loved him. He reminded me a lot of Gideon Cross. But that being said, to me, the heroine's actions and denial of their feelings for each other brought the story down for me.

I still did like the story, but her issues and reluctance to commit to the relatio Almost 4 stars "I know you love me, Jocelyn, because there's no fucking way I can be this much in love with you, and not have you feel the same way. I still did like the story, but her issues and reluctance to commit to the relationship just prevented me from connecting more strongly with the story When the ultimate tragedy strikes Joss's family, she needs a fresh start and moves to Scotland.

Right near the beginning of the story, we meet the hero when he and Joss accidentally end up sharing a cab He comes off as a arrogant in a lovable way and unapologetically charming and just totally fuckhot and while Joss is very physically attracted to him, she refuses to allow herself to become emotionally interested in him.

After finding herself a gorgeous new apartment, she find that it comes with an even more gorgeous perk - her flat-mate's swoony brother: At first, there is just a long period of flirty banter but Joss resists quite a lot, until finally they come to a friends-with-benefits arrangement that Braden agrees to, but really is just using it to try and convince her to be in a relationship with him.

His grip on my chin tightened, quieting me.

How could I let this happen? The thing about this story is that on the outside, its kind of flirty and sexy, but you can sense the multiple undercurrents of hurt in everyone's buried back stories. They are all coping with their own personal hell - especially Joss.

Although Joss and Braden meet right at the start of the story, their relationship is very slow building. And because of how strongly she resists him, he has his work cut out to woo her. But he does it quite subtly - as if he senses how something in her past is causing her pain, and knows not to push until she's ready.

Braden was just a totally gorgeous character - both inside and out. He was swoony, protective.. And you gotta love a man who is bossy in the bedroom but also loved to snuggle. In the relationship, he does make mistakes, but he apologizes for them and does his best to keep Joss from spiralling downward into her personal hell. Joss was very independent, very emotionally closed off and so very deeply hurt and affected by the tragedy in her past that her efforts to shielf herself from ever reliving it leads her to many moments of stupidity on her part.

Luckily, for most of those times, Braden is there to call her on it and keep her facing the reality of the increasing intensity of their growing relationship. When she slips, he does his best to bring her back. At first, I very much got a Bared To You feel from this book, but having finished it, I'd say it veers off in quite a different direction. The hotness hit and I was in love with it for a while, but then it took a bit of a downward turn for me again as Joss' insecurities took over her life and caused her to make a bunch of decisions that I really didn't like.

Joss takes a long time to fight her demons and learn to be ok in a relationship. I loved that Braden would push her to the edge of my comfort zone, but never over it. Overall, I adored the "fuckhot Scot" teehee. And at first, I found Joss's "moments of stupid" more forgiveable because at the same time as having her issues, she recognized that she had them and was seeing a therapist to try and work through them.

But eventually, her inability to admit she had feelings for Braden despite her CLEARLY having them brought the story down for me and there wasn't enough time of the book dedicated to her and Braden being in a functional relationship after she finally was through them.

If you are ok with reading through stupidity from the heroine, you'll probably love this book, but I think part of what annoyed me was I went into it expecting them to have fallen into a bit of a functional relationship for at least part of the book. And I kept wait and waiting and waitng. I guess I'd I had expected that from the start, I'd have liked the book more but that just wasn't the kind of book this was.

This being said, I think this is the kind of book that would make a really awesome movie haha and not just cuz I want to hear the Fuckhot Scot's voice ;P Casting for Braden and Joss: View all 31 comments. Full review now posted. Jocelyn "Joss" Butler is an orphan girl who moves in Scotland four years after the terrible accident that took her family away from her. While trying to restart her life, Joss is ignoring her past on purpose and doesn't face her demons, something that makes her struggle in her present life, trying not to get attached to people around her in fear of also losing them.

Her whole world is about to change when she's going to move in her new flat, at Dublin Street. With Ellie, her new roomate and Braden Carmichael, who's pursuing her relentlessly, she will need to face her demons sooner or later if she wants a future with them in her life. She's good at pushing people away, so why is it hard with them? And is she going to succeed in the end or people are going to get hurt?

I'm already fucking seduced. This sexy, arrogant man who was sex on legs, he was a swoon worthy book boyfriend. If you haven't mete him yet, go ahead. I dare you to meet him and note fall for him. I also liked the heroine. It's certainly not easy if you have to face the life she did. Losing your whole family in one day is simply unthinkable to me and I have no idea how I would go on with my life, that's why I understood where she was coming from and I could excuse her irrational at times behavior.

But I can't deny my heart was bleeding for Braden and Ellie, when she wouldn't let them in. This now belongs officially to my favorite books! I would recommend it to any romance lover. You don't want to miss this, trust me. Thank you, Alice for the recommendation!!

I owe you a good one! View all 67 comments. Sep 02, Tough Critic Book Reviews rated it really liked it. I went into this book with absolutely no expectations, not a single one, I just wanted to read a book, any book. Well knock me flat on my ass because I didn't expect that. I didn't expect awesome on a stick a really hot stick named Braden. Expectations be damned! If we're talking cock full of awesome, then why not 5-stars?

Do I like this book? Where's it going? Is more coming? Is it getting better? What do I think?

List Chapter or Page:

Then all of th I went into this book with absolutely no expectations, not a single one, I just wanted to read a book, any book. Then all of the sudden the gigantic hand of awesome came out of the book, grabbed me, and didn't let go!! Not to mention the hand of awesome knew exactly what it was doing. It was one of those books that just kept getting better and better. It was like a ball gaining speed rolling down a steep hill He was the perfect mix of hard and soft, alpha and prince charming, protector and lover.

This book gave me everything I needed and more. It gave me everything I needed on the desk But it wasn't just about sex!

It had a great story line, awesome characters, and several funny moments. There was a "tickle" scene that caused laughter to shoot from all my orifices! Not to mention I fell in love with Els and Adam. I was almost just as wrapped up in the secondary characters as I was with Joss and Braden.

My only complaint was that everything happened too fast, I wanted more. More time with Braden and Joss View all 21 comments. I was blown away by this story. What started off as just another typical girl-meets-boy type romance story, ended up being so much more. The emotions I went through reading this was a roller-coaster ride. I cried, laughed, screamed, swooned, worried, and even got pissed off.

I wanted to shake Joss at times, and tell her to let go and just trust Braden. But it was her story, and she had a lot to overcome. In the end, 5 big stars! In the end, I was a wreck of emotions. And I absolutely loved it. Joss suffered some great tragedies in her young life, first with the deaths of her family and then later a best friend. Realizing her life was spinning out of control, Joss relocated herself from the United States to Scotland where she completed her college education.

She got her panic attacks under control. Now a graduate, she hopes to become a writer. When circumstances require her to move and find a new roommate, she finds a beautiful place on Dublin Street and a great roommate named Ellie.

Braden and Joss first meet when sharing a taxi cab, and then later she realizes the hot guy is her roommates older brother. The attraction between them sizzles, but he has a girlfriend and Joss is not interested in a relationship. She is just too scarred from some past mistakes of her own, and not ready to get close with a guy.

There is something about Ellie that makes people just like her, and Joss finds herself opening up for the first time in years. Her friendship with Ellie is just one part of this story that I so admired. It was important for Joss to learn to trust and to allow herself to become close to others. Joss has a part-time job bartending at a local pub, which brings in more fun characters.

In time, Joss begins to hang out with the gang when she has time off.

The attraction between Braden and Joss continues to grow, and soon she learns he has broken it off with his girlfriend. He is such a complex person.

We watch him try to understand his own attraction to Joss. He wants her physically with a passion, but he also wants her heart. He wants her trust. He simply just wants her -- completely.

His devotion to her was swoon worthy stuff!! And boy, can the man talk dirty!! I loved these two together. But when things seemed to finally work between them, unexpected news hits that shatters their fragile relationship. It nearly broke my heart! The only bit I can complain about is that Joss did get a bit annoying at times, but it was absolutely understandable considering her past.

She sees a therapist to help with panic attacks, and we learn much about her progress through her sessions. Her recovery is slow but steady, and I enjoyed watching her come to terms with her past so she can embrace her present and future. There was just soooo much to like in this book! It's the kind of story that sticks with you for a long, long time.

What started off as a simple story grew into something very deep and complex.

The character development, especially between Braden and Joss, was so well done. And Ellie and the rest of the gang were great fun to read about too. The ending was so pitch perfect and realistic. I seriously recommend this to any romance contemporary fans who like some meaty stories.

This was not a fluffy romance read, not by a mile. View all 30 comments. Oct 03, Karla rated it it was amazing Shelves: Aside from some repetitiveness with Jocelyn's dialogue, it was almost the perfect book! I'm not going to get into the story too much, but this book had two of the best and most realistic scenes I've ever read. One had me laughing so hard, I had tears running down my face. We always fea 5 Stars!

We always fear the embarrassing happening when we get involved in a new relationship I'm chuckling as I'm writing this, no The moment and what occurs afterwards is very funny, or at least it was to me. Then the author brings us right into a heartbreaking moment, one second your laughing, then your heart is pounding What ensues after that with Braden and Jocelyn For a character who initially came off as an egotistical ass, Braden was amazing, caring and loving What I enjoyed about him most was his playful side, he got angry, but he also knew how to get even and push Jocelyn's buttons.

He was just what she needed to push her full circle and deal with her family's death and other tragic moments in her life. Jocelyn was on a path to self-destruction, then built a wall around herself to protect her from bonding and caring about anyone.

Braden didn't just knock that wall down, he annihilated it! There was also a lovely secondary romance with Braden's sister, Ellie, who was also Jocelyn's roommate. I'm hoping the author considers making this a series. There were so many interesting characters that I would love to see featured in a book of their own. Whatever happened to Nicholas? I felt bad for him, even though we barely got to know him. Please Samantha Young, give him somebody to love!

I finished this book a couple of days ago, and it has been with me in the back of my mind ever since. I wanted to take the time to ponder what this story meant to me, because I gotta tell you I was on an emotional roller-coaster while reading it!

The characters were..

1-On Dublin street – Samantha Young

The author introduces us to Jocelyn at the young age of Everything is 'perfect' in her life. She has loving parents and a beautiful little sister whom she adores, then suddenly tragedy strikes, 5 shiny stars!! She has loving parents and a beautiful little sister whom she adores, then suddenly tragedy strikes, and her whole family is killed in a car crash.

Jocelyn is notified at school, where she is in shock, and from that point on she just shuts down in order to survive. She is then placed in foster care where she remains until the age of At 18 she is able to access a trust fund her parents left for her and she leaves the US and travels to Scotland to attend school for a fresh start, and also because she had dual citizenship because her Mom was Scottish.

Jocelyn is still living a very 'safe' life. She has friends, but trusts no one to open up her heart and herself to The apartment is fantastic and Ellie and Jocelyn hit it off. Gradually Ellie starts to weave her way into Jocelyn's heart with kindness, compassion, and non-judgement.

Ellie starts including Jocelyn in family gatherings, and outings with friends. This is how I pictured Braedon Ellie's brother Braedon has been hurt in the past. Women 'stalk' him because of his success and wealth and try to trap him, so Braedon has 'arrangements' with them so that no one gets hurt, and there's no assumptions or relationship.

They both agree to have a 'just sex' relationship with no strings. This seems like the perfect solution for Jocelyn. Gradually the 'just sex' relationship turns into spooning, sleeping all night together, and Jocelyn attending social functions with Braedon.

This is were the story gets intense! Braedon starts to lower his own wall and starts falling for Jocelyn. He knows that Jocelyn has gone through a really tough time, and is so patient with her by making her realize she's safe with him and that he won't judge her. He begins to share and open up to Jocelyn, and Jocelyn soon realizes she wants more in life, and that she needs help dealing with the grief she's buried for far too long.

She starts by seeing a councilor, who suggests she write her family's story. While writing the story Jocelyn experiences anxiety attacks whenever she allows her memories of her family to enter her mind. Their journey is so wonderful to read, and it's such a great story of healing, forgiveness and love. Braedon and Jocelyn are now two of my favorite fictional couples. Their passion was so friggn hot to read, it blew my mind how 'hungry' they were for each other. Amazing writing, story and characters!

Look forward to reading more from Ms. Favorite quotes "Do you know what's scarier than taking a risk and losing"? I shook my head. Regret does awful things to a person. I feel like I'm missing something really important when you're gone. So important I don't feel like myself.

I've never felt like someone was mine before. But your mine, Jocelyn. I've known that from the moment we met. And I'm yours. I don't want to be anybody else's, babe. View all 26 comments. May 06, Sandra rated it it was ok Shelves: After finishing On Dublin Street , i have to ask you guys a question.

What the heck is all the hype about? To all the fans of this book, i'm glad you enjoyed it.

Meet Jocelyn Who is she? A 20 something year old woman who is afraid of people. Of letting them in and getting attached to them. She likes being alone because no one asks her personal questions she doesn't want to answer. She doesn 2. She doesn't do relationships, not even one night stands anymore. But when she meets a gorgeous man named Braden, and he proposes an offer of a non emotional sex only relationship, what does she do? Because he's just too sexy to resist.

Meet Branden I'm not talking here about the Braden character from the book. I'm just talking about how hot this guy is. The actual guy from the pic. What can i say? Braden is a rich and successful business man sound familiar? Read that shit about a million times already , and -like he said- even though he has a girlfriend he's not blind and can recognize a sexy and beautiful woman. He meets Jocelyn in a cab and even though she's not his 'type', he still wants her. There's just something different about her.

This book wasn't the worst book ever. It was readable and What i hated the most was Jocelyn. Ahh, i can't love him. I don't want love, i don't deserve it. He can't love me and i can't love him. It's just sex. I'm better alone No one can know the real me I don't want to remember. Little spoilers alert - nothing important!!! I was so damn mortified that i actually hid my face between the book!

My jaw near damn hit the floor. Is the author serious? If that damn therapist cocked her head like a bird one more time, I was going to scream. I'll give Joss credit for being a caustic bitch to Braden a majority of the time, though.


He's a real piece of work. I hate this New Alpha character we've been seeing in books ever since Edward Cullen made stalking "sexy" again in Twilight. Perhaps my fantasies don't line up with popular opinion these days, but I don't find these guys attractive at all. The alpha male used to be confident, and yes, demanding, but he knew where to draw the line.

Now, the alpha male is written as some wangsty, twagicy bitch with more insecurities than a teenager going through puberty and a majority of the characteristics you find in those lists that tell you if your partner might be abusive. I don't find this sexy. At all. I don't give a shit if Longshacks McGiantWang is a tortured soul with a sad past. That doesn't give him an excuse to shuck all personal responsibility and mistreat the people around him. Braden Carmichael: Manipulative A-hole is one of these gems.

From the beginning, he refuses to respect Joss' boundaries. All of their conversations go something like this: Joss: Braden, I need space. I am being entirely up-front with you about this.

Braden: I don't give space to women I want to fuck, Jocelyn. Joss: I can't have sex with you. Braden: I'm going to fuck you so hard you won't be able to stand straight in the morning, Jocelyn. I hate it when people call me Jocelyn. Braden: I'm never going away, Jocelyn.

Joss: You're a dick. Braden: I am Alpha Male. Hear me roar! Braden has a very foul mouth that never gets sexy, and this is coming from a person who uses liberal profanity in her reviews. He actually made me tired of the word "fuck". His list of sins against Joss and women in general is long and well-documented in my reading updates. I'll just tell you the ones that pissed me off the most here: He threatens to beat up just about every guy who flirts with or looks at Joss. He tells her what to do with her hair and how to dress because he doesn't want "other men" knowing how sexy she is.

He goes on and on in these really creepy exchanges about how he'll never "share" her, like she's a pair of his gym shorts or something. He manipulates her BIG TIME near the end of the story, telling her that he slept with another woman just to make her break down emotionally so he could discern if she "loved" him.

Frequently, Braden's body language and behavior are described in a way that suggests he's about to murder Joss. Example 1: "That's it, we're done. This was a complete mistake. Example And then he did his worst. After that second quote, he actually tickles her, which may disturb me even more.

Her new life, made to suit her own needs, is almost perfect. All she needs to do is find her Mr. Right—or at least figure out a way to ignore her irresistible yet annoying womanizer of a neighbor.
