Johanna Walker is used to taking charge. But she’s about to meet someone who will make her lose control....
It has always been up to Johanna to care for her family, particularly her younger brother, Cole. With an absent father and a useless mother, she’s been making decisions based on what’s best for Cole for as long as she can remember. She even determines what men to date by how much they can provide for her brother and her, not on whatever sparks may - or may not - fly.
But with Cameron MacCabe, the attraction is undeniable. The sexy new bartender at work gives her butterflies every time she looks at him. And for once, Jo is tempted to put her needs first. Cam is just as obsessed with getting to know Jo, but her walls are too solid to let him get close enough to even try.
Then Cam moves into the flat below Jo’s, and their blistering connection becomes impossible to ignore. Especially since Cam is determined to uncover all of Jo’s secrets...even if it means taking apart her defenses piece by piece.

Give me a Hot Sexy Book, with a good story to listen to, have that "OH MY" sigh, Love most of what I have, but want more. Tell me it ALL!
YES, AND WILL.
Getting to know Jo. From the first book, you really don't know why she does the things she does and to be honest, I judged her wrongly. Goes to show you. That old saying. "Don't judge a book by it's cover" is true. I had no idea what her life was like.. But soon you find out, everything is not as it seems. She is a strong women with one goal. Cole. And she fought to keep him happy. That made this story so good as a mother and a big sister. Her determination made me proud to say that being a women we can do anything we want when we need to. At any cost. And Jo did. I can kick my self for waiting so long to read these. So glad I waited until I had the time to listen the entire day. Wow! great book.
She knows how to put emotions in reading books. This is my first book with her, And she knows when to soften it up and good with the steamy scenes as well..
The length a women will go to protect the ones she loves.
This books is excellent, at first you really need to listen in order to get the history of Jo. On Dublin Road, she is portrayed differently and you want to listen hard as to what her life is like and how she handles day to day life. It's hard for her, Every day is a struggle. . Women today give up. No way some women today would work as hard as she did to make life bearable for her brother. It's worth a credit and even to buy this book is not a waste of good money. I am glad it's in my library and I can go back and listen anytime. And it wouldn't be a bad idea just to put things into perspective from time to time for me.. It does have great sexual encounters, Not as many as ON Dublin Road, but it's a different story as well. And I loved the fact that Author worked all of Dublin Road folks into this as well.. They are family.. Remember that. Don't base this book on being all sex, Oh it's there, and it's HOT but in a context of this story being told. I loved both books. Great book.
I loved the 1st book in this series. The second book puts two characters together that I never would have imagined. And to see the love she had for her brother, to learn what she had gone through and the reasons why she has acted the way she has. And then her friends learning about her pay and her father showing up. Finally she has found someone whom she can love, learn to accept help from her friends, and find a way to forgive her mother after she finds out why she is the way she is. Really enjoyed the narrator. Love the advent. Makes you feel like your in London.
Yes. I actually already went back and listened to the last two hours for a second time. Unlike some romances, this one is something that could and probably does happen. It was nice to read about real people with real struggles working to make this work.
It would be a spoiler, so I don't want to write it; however, it is in the prologue.
I liked Elle's narration so much that I added her other Audible book to my wish list. The book gets good reviews, so it is probably a win-win.
Love in the face of life.
While I enjoyed the first book in this series, I liked this one better. Both are worth the listen, but Jo had far less angst than Joss which was a nice change.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. From the very beginning. Each character was pertinent to the story and very realistic. There were enough surprises and drama that the story wasn't annoying. The narrator did a fantastic job as well. This is one of those story I will read again.
I listened to this book then immediately bought the other two of the series for my kindle. good read
I love this author. This is a great story. I was not originally sold on the choice of character for the next book because I did not really like her in the first book but it was great surprise. I enjoy these stories because she always has a little spin on the usual love story. She has lots of steamy scenes, funny parts and a few sad parts. It just makes for an all around great listen. I could have listened to it all in one sitting but alas my kids wanted to be fed:( Samantha Young is now on my favorite list and I hope to see more from her in the future. It is so worth the credit or the cash for this book.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Down London Road is another “can’t put down”, “must listen to again” novel by Samantha Young! Book 2 in the On Dublin Street series does not disappoint.
Samantha Young is such a talent! This is my second book to read by her, after “On Dublin Street”. She masterfully introduces her characters in a way that the reader feels a relationship with each; developing a vested interest in their future, their friends, their family, their loves, their happiness, their struggles and their triumphs. These amazing characters are once again, brought magically to life by Elle Newland.
As is true in her first novel in the series, there is a strong sexual content that is written within the context of the storyline, for mature audiences.
Johanna Walker is rather briefly introduced in the first novel as somewhat of a “gold-digger” interested in men only for what they could give her. She is featured in the second novel and the reader is reintroduced to her, immediately realizing that she is, indeed, remarkable! I don’t want to give to much away…just know going in that you will just love and care for her; and Cameron MacCabe is just what she needs.
Mark your calendars for June 18th when, “Until Fountain Bridge” (an On Dublin Street novella) is to be released by NAL in ebook in the US. This story follows the romance between Ellie Charmicael and Adam Sutherland.
I cannot wait…
Credit Worthy? You’d better believe it!
I LOVED book 1.... That being said, this one falls a bit flat. The two main characters just seemed a bit shallow.
The narration on this one was a little painful to listen to at first. I gradually got used to it but it still grated on my nerves. Overall it's a good story and decent listen. Not sure if it's worth the price tag tho
Full Time Business Manager and mom to 5 boys and 1 girl, in every spare minute I have I'm reading or listening. I LOVE AUDIBLE
Very good narrator. Story keeps you interested and deals with some tough issues like parental alcoholism and domestic violence. Steamy and romantic story of triumph. Loved it.
