Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "HOT HOT HOT"
    If you could sum up On Dublin Street in three words, what would they be?

    One Great Listen!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The emotion Paula put into the entire read of the book.


    Which character – as performed by Paula Costello – was your favorite?

    All of them! My first Listen of Paula and I thought she freaking nailed it. The accent was just spot on and the emphasis she put into each character was just awesome. I will definitely listen to this one a 2nd time. I can't wait to hear her tackle more audio, and hope she does the next book in the series.


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

    The entire book took me through many emotions of someone trying to overcome personal tragedy.

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

    Great naration , wonderful accents!


    Any additional comments?

    It makes you feel! Some of the characters are emmotionaly screwed up, without all the bondaged sex. Loved the scottish accents it adds so much to the life of the story. Great characters. Hope the next one is as close to this great!

    Sure-to the right friend, it is a great story however very graphic sexual scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    I really liked this book, although the 'woe is me' can get tedious the author does a great job keeping the storyline moving. It was fantastic and the narration was superb!

    Story
    "Highland Hottie!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you're a Fifty Shades fan, you'll love this book. Full of erotic sex scenes with a good storyline. In Fifty Shades, the woman character seems submissive and weak. This female character is strong, independent, but slightly flawed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's nice to see the layers of her protective self slowly come apart throughout the story.


    What does Paula Costello bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator of this story pulls off the Scottish accent well and the different tones of her voice gives each individual character. There are funny moments that made me laugh out loud and there are sad moments that almost made me cry. Her great narration of the story brought those emotions out of me.


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

    The ending is moving. I won't spoil the rest, but it's definitely worth the credit.

    This is the first contemporary "romance" I have listened to, so it was an extremely pleasant surprise. Well written and excellent narration - Paula infused sensuality and humor throughout the reading. The relationship/sex scenes were ... well I don't have the words to fully describe my reaction!! Let's just say this is a really good read and well worth the credit. Can't wait for the next book!!

    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this story. The characters are well developed and introduced slowly. I have noticed a theme with this author's book, all of her main characters come from a tragic accident that happens in the teen years. This gets obnoxious while reading, I can only listen to "poor pitiful me" for so long. I am torn on purchasing the next book in the series.
