Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare....
Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well - until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core.
Braden Carmichael is used to getting what he wants, and he's determined to get Jocelyn into his bed. Knowing how skittish she is about entering a relationship, Braden proposes an arrangement that will satisfy their intense attraction without any strings attached.
But after an intrigued Jocelyn accepts, she realizes that Braden won't be satisfied with just mind-blowing passion. The stubborn Scotsman is intent on truly knowing her...down to the very soul.

Yes, as a matter of fact someone introduce me to the "Scottish"
Not so longed winded on what's "Joss" problem and you wait until last mintues of chapters to get to the point.
I need to take a trip to Scotland
Uh, yeah how the characters are so real and different, meaning that we all need to communicate better with family, friends and everyone needs love
I'd love this book.
The narration was absolutely impressive!
The most memorable moment was when Joss meets Braiden,
No, but she is by far the best narrator I've heard so far.
Yes I'd recommend this book. Loved the story and the narrator!
She just made the book! Loved her accent!
I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
I loved the change she experienced.
I loved Ellie, the roommate. She was sweet, but tough.
Books books books
Yes because it's super hot
I felt in the beginning she was going to get on my nerves because she kind of sounded like a valley girl BUT! Then she kicked in with the accents and Joss became real,so she did a great job.
This book is super freaking HOTT! Did an all night marathon only slept 3 hrs thank goodness it was a weekend listen. Joss's character will get on your nerves but its worth listening to the whole book loved loved loved it.
Power, passion, commitment
The development of their relationship and commitment.
Almost. It did not suck me in to want to stay up all night, but I enjoyed the story and relationship.
So many books so little time - but Audible gives me the gift of multitasking - I can get those simple tasks done AND be up on great reads.
Some steamy sex.
VERY light compared to 50 Shades.
Scottish Accents! Dang, Braden Carmichael's accent did it for me.
Jocelyn's snarkiness is over the top. If she could have toned it down, this would be a 4 star performance.
If you are looking for a alpha jealous man with an accent & some very good sex scenes, this is a fun book
Wife, mother of 3 and lover all of all books! I've really become interested in the audio books since I have such a long commute. It's a wonderful way to pass the time!
Rarely do I find a book that was so hard to put down that I practically ignore my family! Every morning I got in the car to listen to it I was actually thrilled that I have a long commute. I'd pull up to work and hate to get out and stop the story. I'm not entirely sure why I was SO pulled in; but nonetheless I was. I loved all the characters, every single one of them. I loved the narrator's voice, I loved how she depicted Braden and Jocelyn. I just loved their labored romance and the intensity of their love. I'd probably have to say this is one of THE best audio books I've ever listened to. I'm now desperate to see if Samantha Young has any more books. I'd love to hear their story continued. The emotion in this book was perfect. The descriptions were spot on of how she felt...it was pretty much just INTENSE. That's the best word to describe it. I actually found myself laughing out loud, and even crying...not a great way to walk in to work!
I couldn't recommend this book any higher. If there were 10 stars it would get it. Great book, great narrator and the characters were done impeccably. Both content and delivery.
Loved it and now I'm so sad that it has ended. The good news is, since I've purchased it, I'll have it forever to read over and over!
Yes. Why? Besides the fact that it is a well written contemporary romance, but the narrator was so good that I went looking for other audiobooks that she has done and was surprised to discover that this was her first and only one.
Even though I am not a fan of contemporary romance there was nothing about this audiobook that I did not like.
Ms. Costello did all voices perfectly both male and female and the Scottish accents were great. I was so impressed with her but could not find anything else by her. I m sure that will change. If only Ms. Costello had been the narrator for all the "Fifty Shades of Grey" books so many people would not have been so disappointed in the narration of them me included she would have been perfect.
Before listening to this book have your airline ticket to Edingurgh ready cause you will want to go.
