Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Wonderful book, brought tears to my eyes"

    the narrator did a great job with the narration as well. I can't wait for the next one to come out. I also want to say that the characters in this book are portrayed really well. None of them appear too weak, too strong, or too perfect. The narrator does a good job slipping between American an Scottish accents as well.

    "Review: Down London Road"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, and I already have because it is a good romance book that I believe falls on the list of books you definitely should read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cam was my favorite character. He is such a jerk to begin with but you can tell there is a reason behind it. He's tattoed and hot and we eventually learn he's a huge romantic that refuss to take any of Jo's self-deprecating crap.


    Have you listened to any of Elle Newlands’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not. But I really, really enjoyed her performance and would definitely love to hear her narrating again.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The bathroom scene between Cam and Jo. You could just feel the sexual frustration and longing leaping at you.


    Any additional comments?

    A continuation of the story of the lives of people we met in "On Dublin Street" this book stands omits own feet enough that it's not an absolute necessity to read "On Dublin Street" before this one, but I would still recommend it as that was a great book too.

    "Loved it but it drags a bit"

    Love this work and the "sister" novel, "On Dublin Street." This book takes a bit too long for my tastes to get Jo and Cam together, as well as to get some of the misunderstandings out of the way. *****SPOILER ALERT: If Cam were my man and had done all of the things he did (or didn't do) with his ex in the novel, he'd have been left in the dust. That part kind of irritated me.*****

    The narrator is perfection! I love this series and look forward to the other books in store!

    What did you love best about Down London Road?

    I could definitely relate to Johanna in this novel. Although there were a few far fetched scenes for the most part it was very heartfelt and genuine. The chemistry between Johanna and Cameron is impressive. Samantha Young's sense of humour is right up my alley.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hands down, Johanna. Definitely a honey badger.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Cameron gave Johanna a paint brush.

    "Love...love...loved it!!!"
    Where does Down London Road rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's ranks in my top ten...maybe in my top five!


    What other book might you compare Down London Road to and why?

    It's the second in the series that started with On Dublin Street. It is similar in style and yet very different in content from that book!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was the night she broke up with Malcolm and then went to Cameron's apartment. They were sizzling hot together and I loved it when she said "I broke up with Malcolm" and he said "I know, you wouldn't be here otherwise". I loved the chemistry between these two!!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Jo told the cab driver "my people are on Dublin street". She finally realized that she had friends in her life who loved her and would do anything to help her!


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there are more books in this series. I love the narrator - Elle Newlands - she drew me in and made the characters come alive for me. I have read some reviews where her accent has been dissected and found wanting...I have never been to Scotland and so I don't know what the accent should sound like...but it sure works for me the way she delivers it!!!

    "Great Modern Love Story..."

    This is a continuation of "On Dublin Street" by Samantha Young. This steamy love story takes place between Johanna and Cameron. The odds are against them at first as they come off on the wrong foot by insulting each other because of their assumed bad reputations and personalities. I couldn't wait for the tension to be cut between the 2 and when it finally does, it gets dreamy and steamy. Good love modern love story with tons of drama thrown in. It was not as good as "On Dublin Street" but it was worth the credit.

    "Characters you want to be friends with!"

    I truly loved this book and it's predecessor On Dublin Street which I read instead of listening to. The characters in both books are so real and relatable with insecurities, smart mouths and real life situations. I found myself unable to put down either book until finished and then I wanted more. After reading this book you will feel like a family friend and will wish you were on your way to visit! Of course, the sex is hot but the relationships Samantha writes are event hotter. I can't wait to go back and read/listen to some of her other books outside this catagory. She's added on more fan......
