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.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    Story
    "Some time love found you when you were not looking"
    Would you listen to On Dublin Street again? Why?

    Yes, I enjoyed Paulo Costello reading this book. I love the Scottish accent she did while reading this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love how romantic Braden is. I love how he found for Jocelyn.


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

    I think this is her 1st reading b/c I did not find any other books she had read.


    Any additional comments?

    Wow, I listened to this book. I love the reader voice with the Scottish accent. I read this book through e-book awhile ago and enjoyed it a lot. However while I listened to it, I found that Jocelyn can me such a coward at times and it drove me crazy.

    My favorites quotes: I love Braden.
    He jerked his eyes back to mine. "You look beautiful, Jocelyn." ... "But you need to put your hair up."... "Because," his voice was low, a deep purr he reserved for the bedroom, hence why I felt all the way down into my panties, "I like being the only man who knows how beautiful your hair is. How gorgeous you look with it down.:

    "I spent last night going over and over the last six months in my head and I know that you're lying to my. I know you love me, Jocelyn, because there's no f**king way I can be this much in love with you, and not have you feel the same ways. It's not possible."

    "Hot for a Scot"

    I really enjoyed this one. I'm not a huge fan of Highland Romance novels and was a little nervous about this book being set in Scotland. Thankfully it was nothing like I expected and I now understand the allure of the Scottish hero. I really fell for Braden. This book is definitely smexy! Well worth a credit and then some.

    "A Wonderful Novel for women to enjoy"

    Samantha Young writes great sex scenes and narrator Paula Costello did a very nice job of telling them. The journey of Joss and Brendan from casual relationship to marriage was a "listen twice" type of audiobook for me.

    I enthusiastically urge women who enjoy romantic novels and graphic sex to spend a credit on this delightful story of an American girl in Scotland

    "guess I'm going to be the unfavorable review"

    Disclaimer: I've never been much of a "girly girl," always rolled my eyes at chick flicks and chuckled at the covers of romance novels. But I was curious to try one at some point, and yes my boyfriend broke up me and I was frustrated. So take my review with a grain of salt, but I'm going back to eye-rolling and snickering.

    First, predictable and repetitious. Sure, you know what is going to happen, if you wanted a mystery you would read a mystery. Of course you know that the chick is going to get the hot dude and that there will lots of sex, that's why you're reading this. But come on, how many times do we need to hear the same things happening again? I also thought the book began a bit abruptly--two sentences in and said chick is already in close quarters with said hot dude, who is already eying her thighs.

    Next, the unhealthy nature of the "relationship." I know a lot of folks have enjoyed the "50 Shades" series, but I am personally annoyed and offended by the heroic portrayal of women being taken advantage of. Much of the book I was frustrated Joss' almost-attempts at standing up for herself, thinking "finally, don't take that sh*t, that-a-girl" until she yet again melts before the handsome douchebag. Telling her that she can't wear short dresses out in public because he doesn't want other men to see her taking pride in her body, can't wear her hair down because he doesn't want other men to see how nice it looks.... little red flags anybody?

    Not to mention, Barbie and Ken? Of course the hot dude is going to be mid/late-twenties, handsome, extremely well-muscled, rich, smart, charismatic... of course. But when the author started describing Joss as looking more "plain," enjoying a "casual" appearance I cheered. Why, Joss even calls herself short! She even picked fun at the blonde bimbos. Cool, a "normal" heroine! But apparently looking "plain" means having fantastic hair, great legs, and jugs for boobs. Oh, and 5'6" is "short." [Need I comment that this 5'2" reviewer snorted in disgust at all the times Joss complained about her height?]

    Am I just an insensitive, hard-to-please, fault-finding reader? Maybe. If your personality more closely matches that of the other reviews, hey you might enjoy the book, to each his own. But if you're newer to this genre and saw that this was ranked as a top novel, I would recommend trying to find something else.

    The audiobook's redeeming quality was the accents. I thought the narrator did quite a good job impersonating the accents for the characters, though I am a sucker for Scottish and Irish accents. I almost wished that Joss' character had been Scottish too, so that the whole novel would have been read with such a delightful accent.

    Story
    "Fantastic Surprise"

    This is the first novel that I have read/listened to by this author and I am now a fan. It had humor, romance, sex and an alpha male. The narration was fantastic. I have not listen to many books with characters that have accents. Paula Costello did an amazing job of bring the characters to life. My husband came into the room and wanted to know what I was grinning at. The book had me doing this all the way through. I laughed out loud through many parts. Jocelyn has a weird, neurotic personality but still does not come across as weak and useless. There was some good steamy sex scenes but not overkill. If you like books like Sylvia Day's "Bared To You", then you will like this one. I could have listened to it in one sitting but alas work got in the way. I love books where there is sarcastic dialogue and funny characters. I will definitely check out her next book to see how that one plays out. I will also look up other narrations by Paula.

    "It had all the elements..."

    This is my first book of SYoung. I think I will be listening to her more. This book was interesting, enjoyable and sexy. I really appreciated the manner this writer keeps you in the book because you have to find the answers. Well done. I love everything about this book.
    Narration: I'm giving you a 10 Paula Costello because I normally cannot listen to a Scottish accent without getting a headache. For me you were awesome, all the "voices" were so good you could identify them and they "fit" the character. LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS BOOK!

    Story
    "Left my knickers in a twist!!"

    LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
    It's a romance story that has all the good stuff. Couldn't put it down.

    Aside from it just being a great listen this book is so refreshing in that Joss reflects on her issues realistically and she recognizes why she is the way she is. She evolves throughout the story. (Kind of nice to not hear a character keep reiterating their fears over and over again without a clue.). Also, it was great to hear Braden call Joss on her issues when necessary but still patient. However, there is so much more to the story that you don't feel beat down by "issues".

    As for the narration--INCREDIBLE!!!
    I don't know why it took me so long to download this book. As soon as I finished it I started it all over again. I'm counting down the hours to "Down London Road".
    I hate when I can't put a book down because I'm bummed when its over.

    "Intensely passionate and compeling love story"

    This is not an easy love story. It's at times uncomfortable, thought provoking, and frustrating. I loved the story all the more for those very reasons. There are intensely passionate moments and very sweet "breakthrough" moments.

    The narrator does an excellent performance with the different characters, male and female vocals and Scots accent.

    The dialogue is believable and very humorous at times, at others just heartbreaking. Stay with it to the end. It's a very satisfying listen. Well worth the credit.
