Love Romantic Erotica with a twist , thrill, suspense and a great story !
Really loved Paula Costello and her narration, she made the book !!!!
I did like the story and the characters but Joss and her iron box is soooo frustrating to me. You really want to slap her and tell her to get over it !!! Loved her strength and her mouthy attitude though, and Bradon ...ahhhh, sooo HOT!!! All in all a good book and good worth the money or credit .
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
It's a romance story that has all the good stuff. Couldn't put it down.
Aside from it just being a great listen this book is so refreshing in that Joss reflects on her issues realistically and she recognizes why she is the way she is. She evolves throughout the story. (Kind of nice to not hear a character keep reiterating their fears over and over again without a clue.). Also, it was great to hear Braden call Joss on her issues when necessary but still patient. However, there is so much more to the story that you don't feel beat down by "issues".
As for the narration--INCREDIBLE!!!
I don't know why it took me so long to download this book. As soon as I finished it I started it all over again. I'm counting down the hours to "Down London Road".
I hate when I can't put a book down because I'm bummed when its over.
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.
Curled up with a good book in my corner of the world on Sweet Grass Farm, it doesn't get any better than that!
This is not an easy love story. It's at times uncomfortable, thought provoking, and frustrating. I loved the story all the more for those very reasons. There are intensely passionate moments and very sweet "breakthrough" moments.
The narrator does an excellent performance with the different characters, male and female vocals and Scots accent.
The dialogue is believable and very humorous at times, at others just heartbreaking. Stay with it to the end. It's a very satisfying listen. Well worth the credit.
Say something about yourself!
I got very absorbed in this book. It was very sexy/hot; the characters were – for the most part – well developed and likeable. The narrator Paula Costello was excellent.
The story is about a young American woman x-pat that lives in Edinboro, Scotland after a tragic adolescence, and the people she meets and engages with. The author does not drag out all of the back stories but rather inserts and weaves them through the main story.
It is worth the credit!! If you like romance, all that means and so much more!
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!
