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.

The story is good. I believe with a different narrator, it would have been much better. I found the narration flat which made me not like the character. A good narrator sells the story. However, this is my opinion. The story was ok. I didn't have much empathy for the main character.
As if there was any doubt I would be adding a new book to my favorites shelf it is truly gone now.... LOVED it!!! Cam and Jo are just awesome ... so sad in places but so sweet and "hello" HOT!!!! We also got to catch up with some of our other Dublin St. friends the amazing Joss, Braden, Ellie and sneak peaks from the rest! Gosh I hope this is a long sweet series... can't wait for book #3!!! My favorite quote from the book I think anyway ... lots of great ones!“You know, the world will always try to make you into who it wants you to be. People, time, events, they’ll all try to carve away at you and make you think you don’t know who you are. But it doesn’t matter who they try to make you, or what name they try to give you. If you stay true, you can chip off all their machinations and you’re still you underneath it all. Be Caledonia..."
The audio performance was great but the accent was a bit thick in places and hard to understand I had to slow the speed down on my kindle so I could hear it correctly. The story is fantastic though!
Yes! The narrator is amazing with accents! She draws you into the story! I listened to the first 8 hours in one evening because I couldn't stop listening!
The story line was deep and really makes you care about the characters. I really like the accents and the love aspect! Just a great listen.
Laugh and cry! The main character is witty which cracks me up, but there are parts of the book that make me cry.
Love it! I rank it right up there with 50 Shades, maybe even better!
I really enjoyed this story. It was well written, and the characters behaved in realistic ways. The narration was awesome as well. It made me laugh and cry.
Say something about yourself!
I don't understand why I didn't like this book. We had an alpha male, a bit flawed, and very rich. We had the female lead being very flawed and opposed to the idea of the alpha male. The chemistry was good, the sex scenes were hot and still I could not really get into this book. I really wanted to, had great expectations to be down loading the next book ASAP but the story just had flaws for me that made it impossible to work.
I think I was into the book until the male and female lead got together. I think it all went down hill from there. It was too easy after that, and it lacked the grrr of the alpha male, he was just a bit too understanding. I would have put this in romance not erotica, and not labeled it as alpha make territory. Overall I wouldn't have purchased it again, and I'm not buying number 2.
I loved that the sex didn't overwhelm the story. It was hot but appropriately fit in the story...the narrator made me feel the story...this is a great love story.
When Braydon made Joss admit how she felt.
When Joss goes to Ellis and tells her she loves her...reminded me of my friends when I was younger.
I fell in love with this book from the first minute of listening. The reader does amazing accents and you can tell whos speaking just by the voice. The book is more angsty than I usually go for but it fit into the story so well.
The more disturbing the storyline, the better!
Couldn't put it down when I read it and was blown away by the audiobook! I listen to it at least once a week. If you are looking for a unique and passionate love story, please choose On Dublin Street. It is AWESOME!!!!!!
Paula Costello did an excellent job at all the voices
I can not pick I fell in love ith all of them
braden she did an awersome job at the accent
the story will pull you in and you will not want to leave.
I cannoit wait for her next one
