I have enjoyed it a lot but I find it somehow sexist. Anyway, I recommend it if you want to have a good time.. Some laughs and some sad parts.. Very complete although I would change some of the behaviours.
it was a very sect book with drama and lots of life with a happily ever ending
The writing, the narration... Scotland! This story brings it all together. there were a few moments when I wanted to slap Joss upside the back of the head, but I am thoroughly won over.
I can't even narrow it down... I love the alpha, love the fact that Joss gives as good as she gets, love the backdrop of Scotland. Any time I am done with a book and inspired to look things up on line to see what they are writing about or get more details, I know it was a success.
A Scottish accent. :-) She is a very good narrator and manages to keep the story flowing through different characters, sexes, and accents. It is impressive.
If you get this book you will want to check out the rest of the series!
More then one person doing the voice over...
Maybe... if she was just doing the American accent
This seems to be a popular book and was recommended to me. It's about a self absorbed teenager (she's 20 something) who is very annoying and full of her self and the story is so clichéd.. falling in love with the rich business man etc... It was tedious & totally unsurprising in its outcome.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
yes, all the cursing from the heroine took away from a good listen. I own a lot of bad boy books I purchased, but this author is not for me. I read the top 5 reviews and purchased since I love a good Irish or Scottish story, but I am at ch. 6 and had to stop! Another reviewer, maybe 10 down said if over 30, you may have issues with listening. Yup!
The author may have a good story to tell, but the heroine does nothing but act like a spoiled girl who curses unnecessarily. Good writing can tell a story without this much bad language. I listened to a couple of bad boy biker stories, and yes, every sentence had bad language, but that was expected for the genre.
A good editor would have told ms Young to use either humor or more wit instead of foul language so much. Nothing wrong with cursing if it adds to the picture.
I can not stand this reader female voice. Her male voice is good, which was why I lasted to ch. 6. Her Irish voice is good but, I had to stop as her American voice was such a turn off for me. I have tons of books to be listened to and just did not want to put up with the lead female character or voice.
Just a bit better editing, and more humor and sassy dialogue. This author is on the right track.
One of the best I've listened to so far.
This is my first Paula Costello audio book and I think she's awesome. Her performance was spot on. Her ability to jump between accents - American, Scottish, English - was perfect. I was very impressed and very happy I got to listen to this book.
I loved this whole series. I laughed so hard at the names she would come up with. So far I have listened to it twice already.

Everything. I LOVE the story but Paula does a fabulous job narrating it - possibly one of my top 3 audio books ever. I would listen to Paula read the dictionary if she did it in Braden's voice.
I hate comparing - if you love angsty romances, you will love On Dublin Street.
Everything. But especially Braden's voice/accent. She did a fantastic job.
Yes...I laughed, cried, swooned - it was amazing.
One of my favorite books of all time and all the audio book did was confirm my love!
Goodreads reviewer and blogger... also dentist and wife/mom when I get the time!
Yawn... is nap time over?
This book is wildly, WILDLY popular with my Goodreads friends. More popular than free Ben and Jerry's on a hot summer day. Then why oh why did I feel like this book has a plot that I've seen 100 times before? Maybe I'm just a jaded reader, maybe I can't read M/F contemporary romance anymore, but this book just dragged for me.
Rich, possessive MC? Check!
Broken girl with a tragic past? Check!
Back and forth relationship filled with miscommunications? Check!
Though I'm not going to be singing this book's praises any time soon, I did like quite a few things about this story. I loved the setting (the narrator did Scottish accents to die for- she did a GREAT job). I thought that the writing was competent and I enjoyed the secondary characters more than I expected to.
I think at a different time in my life, maybe two years ago when I started reading romances seriously, I would have really liked this book. Maybe I would have liked this book better in print versus audiobook? Maybe it was my mood, my month, my state of mind... whatever the reason, this book just never clicked for me. However, I'm happy that so many of my friends saw something special in this one.
