I truly enjoyed this story. What a pleasant surprise I stumbled on. It was a well written piece. You saw the way Joss grew throughout the story. Her struggles, her denials, her love,...all of it was felt in the telling. It wasn't an action packed story, there were no who-done-its...It was a story...a story of a young girl working her way through a tragedy in her life. Braden was delightful, and a hotty. He's just what Joss needed. You felt the chemistry between them. And you know the author did a good job on the alpha, when you want to meet someon just like him and take him home. :) I enjoyed the dialog between them, and the banter at times was just plain funny. The narrator did a nice job with the scottish accents. And the secondary characters were great. All in all, it was worth the credit!!
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Wow... what a great love story. I loved this. I have just become a Samantha Young Fan!!!
I was not expecting this to be as good as this was. Jos has so many issues b/c of her childhood and she moves to Scotland and meets Brendon and his sister and boy do they help her. Well Brendon sure does. The way the story is written you can just listen without stopping. It was an easy listen from beginning to end. I never felt like skipping chapters because the story got boring or started to lack seriousness or intensity. It was great! I loved the bar fight scene with hot smex in the office. AWESOME!!!! Great Job!
A buy or credit. I would buy and save my credit for something else I am not to sure about. This is a sure thing for romantic novel lovers like myself...
Narration was really good. I never listen to Costello before, and she was just wonderful. I loved her Scottish accent. Simply Perfect. One of my fave stories now.
I would definitely recommend this book. It was very well written and narrated. Sometimes it is really irritating when a female narrator speaks for a male character, but this book was done very well and I loved the accents. I listened to it a second time. Will definately look for more from this author.
Braden of course. He was strong and caring but also vulnerable and oh so sexy!
No, but I will look for more from her.
Too many to mention.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
“Dublin Street” is a “can’t put down”, “must listen to again” novel by Samantha Young, and Braden Carmichael is perhaps the best leading man…ever!
This story is rich in emotion with great characters that you will love.
There is a strong sexual content found in these pages, but responsibly written within the context of the storyline.
Mark your calendars for May 7, 2013 when the Second installment of the Dublin series, “Down London Road” will be released on ebooks! I was so impressed with “Dublin Street” that I made a visit to Samantha Young’s website. There, I found out that Publisher’s Weekly announced that Samantha signed a book deal for the third book in the series as well.
I cannot wait…
Credit Worthy??? You’d better believe it!
LOVED this book. Oh Braden, Braden, Braden. I was hooked from beginning to end. There was a good balance of angst, emotions, laughter, love. Good story with a perfect ending and no cliffhangers. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, HOT ACCENT!!!!! WHEW (fanning myself) ;-) the narrator did a good job.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a very good story. It's the first one I've read by this author but I've heard so many good reviews I had to try it. The narrator did a great job with it and did wonderful on the Scottish accents. :D
I liked Joss. She had a rough life and lost her family at a very young age. This caused her to not invest in relationships because of the fear of losing more people she loved. She moves in to a flat on Dublin Street as a flatmate to Braden's sister, Ellie (whom I loved...kinda wish she'd had her own book). When Joss and Braden first meet she tries her best to push him away because the feelings and attraction he stirs in her are frightening to someone who hides from any ties.
Braden is great. I think he did the best he could given the issues Joss had...and considering the fact that she wouldn't share her issues with anyone making them harder to get around. Braden gets Joss to agree to a "friends with benefits" arrangement but then keeps doing things that are more personal that something between just "friends". It's actually pretty cool how he manages to get past her defenses.
I was actually pretty pleased for a good part of the book. For a while Joss was doing real well it working at things with Braden. She realized she needed help with her emotional issues and was seeing a therapist. She stopped griping at Braden for behaving like more than friends and their relationship started progressing. For a while, things were going well for them.
But these books always have to have uncertainty and there's some major drama that freaks Joss out in her forward progress on her emotional issues and it breaks up Braden and Joss. Things aren't helped along by some mis-understandings (and 1 outright lie) and I wasn't sure I was liking the direction the story was heading but in the end I really did like it. The ending was really good and tied things up well leaving me with a happy and satisfied feeling once I was done.
Very good book. I'd recommend it and will probably continue with the next in the series when it comes out. :D
This was a surprisingly good listen. I continued to skip purchasing it because of the synopsis did not grab my attention; saw some reviews on Amazon and Good Reads and decided to give it a try. It was defininitely worth the credit to me.
Yes. In fact the second I was done that was the first think I did on FB. I used my free credit to get this book and don't regret it at all. On Dublin Street was a fantastic listen and Paula was great at the narration.
50 Shades, Reflected in You
I personal thought she did great with the voices and for me it made the book all that much better.
Absolutely fantastic. I haven't been touched by a book like this in a long time. I loved all the characters in the book, Ellie, Adam, and Dr. Pritchard.
Joss aka Jocelyn is brave, wonderful and so real. For someone so young and who had lost so much; she is incredibly self-suffient and independent. That independence keeps her safe; safe from developing close relationships with others in fear that they can lead to further loss. I saw alot of myself in Joss, my younger 22 year old self.
I love the fact the Joss knows she has issues, but that Braden, that special someone, won't let those issues stop him from forcing himself into her life. Braden was the right man, at the right time and strong enough to be with Joss.
This is what Erotic Romance should be; passionate, uplifting, real and hopeful.
I highly recommend this book.
The audiobook narrated by Paula Costello who was fabulous.
This was such a great book! The narrator's voice was a little annoying initially but she did an awesome Irish accent especially for the main male character, whom I wanted to magically appear in real life because he seemed kinda scrumptious ...I'm just saying. Good storyline for the most part, fairly realistic, great sex scenes. I just fell in love with the characters and would love another Dublin st book!
