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.

    "Great Listen."

    Down London Road follows behind On Dublin Street. We get to know more about Jo from bar. Jo came across a gold digger in the first book but in her book we find out why she picks the men she does. In come Cole and things change and Jo figures out she may have been looking in all the wrong directions. I like that Jo was really taken in by Jocelyn and her friend from the first book. It is nice to see past characters in a series.

    The narrator is awesome!!! Perfect accent for the characters and the Scottish setting. I would definitely recommend this series. I am hoping she will continue it with some of the new characters that you meet in this book. Start with On Dublin Street it is also a great book and you get to know the cast of characters.

    "Looooved it!"

    I was a little hesitant to get this book because I didn’t really care for Johanna’s character from “On Dublin Street”. I must admit the author did a fantastic job of making her a real and sympathetic character.
    I fell in love with Johanna and really cared about her. Cam’s character bothered me a little though. I thought he was kind of a jerk at times but despite all the drama I enjoyed their romance.
    This is a really good book with great narration. If you enjoyed the first book then you will definitely enjoy this one too!

    Definitely a credit worthy listen!

    4 Stars!

    "Could Not Put it Down...Will Listen to it Again!"

    Down London Road is another “can’t put down”, “must listen to again” novel by Samantha Young! Book 2 in the On Dublin Street series does not disappoint.

    Samantha Young is such a talent! This is my second book to read by her, after “On Dublin Street”. She masterfully introduces her characters in a way that the reader feels a relationship with each; developing a vested interest in their future, their friends, their family, their loves, their happiness, their struggles and their triumphs. These amazing characters are once again, brought magically to life by Elle Newland.

    As is true in her first novel in the series, there is a strong sexual content that is written within the context of the storyline, for mature audiences.

    Johanna Walker is rather briefly introduced in the first novel as somewhat of a “gold-digger” interested in men only for what they could give her. She is featured in the second novel and the reader is reintroduced to her, immediately realizing that she is, indeed, remarkable! I don’t want to give to much away…just know going in that you will just love and care for her; and Cameron MacCabe is just what she needs.

    Mark your calendars for June 18th when, “Until Fountain Bridge” (an On Dublin Street novella) is to be released by NAL in ebook in the US. This story follows the romance between Ellie Charmicael and Adam Sutherland.

    I cannot wait…

    Credit Worthy? You’d better believe it!

    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.

    "Get your ticket to London Road"

    Well I’m pleased to say Samantha Young has done it again! If you liked On Dublin Street then you’re going to love this one too. I was swept away into Johanna’s story and it was so compelling I had to listen to it in one sitting. That’s what I enjoy so much about Ms. Young’s books. The emotion she wraps you into with her writing just sweeps you into another world. The steamy sex scenes aren’t too bad either. So take my advice and use your credit or just purchase this one because it’s just that great!!!

    "It was ok"

    Down London Road by Samantha Young (Audio Edition)
    Narrated by Elle Newlands
    On Dublin Street Series #2

    ♥ ♥ ♥ For me this book didn't have the same pull as the last two. I never really had an interest in Johanna’s story. Her past and current situation made for a story with hard issues to overcome. I wasn’t impressed with the way Cam and Jo met. Cam was a total jerk towards her and later on, he uses something personal just to hurt her, which really bothered me. Both leads in this book seemed very angry and jealous.. Jo was too insecure and Cam a bit too fast to revert back to name calling. There were points for me where I couldn’t understand why Jo couldn’t see she was doing the same things she was accusing Cam of doing. I just wonder if these two keep up this current model.. How long will they actually last?

    That said, we also get to meet Cole, Johanna’s younger brother - I liked him a lot. He and Cam have a great relationship and I saw that he gets a book of his own, which I am totally looking forward to. The writing was good and the narration easy to listen to. Yes, it didn’t draw me in as much as the other books, but there was deeper problems for the leads to deal with (abuse, and alcoholism) and this required more backstory, and explanation, which, I felt was done well. The narrator also made this book an easy listen. She was a little breathy for Cam’s voice but I got used to that. Had I read this and not listened.. It would have taken me longer I think. Worth the read? Yes as you get to see what’s happening with all the other characters and how their stories progress. I am looking forward to the next book.

    "Raw and full of feeling"
    Any additional comments?

    I had read On Dublin Street years ago and this was a series I had always wanted to get back to.  The audiobook was offered at a great price so I had to jump on it.  Elle Newlands is a suburb narrator, I loved the accents!

    This story snuck up on me and I was surprised how much I got into it.  Jo was such a complex character, who was shaped of years of abuse and neglect into a woman with very little self-worth.  She only thought she was good for being a pretty face and a good girlfriend.  And she was resigned to that as long as she was able to care for her brother.   It was heartbreaking, because you knew and felt that she could be so much more if only she believed in herself.  Then comes Cameron.  To be honest I didn’t like him at first, you weren’t meant to, he was horrible to Jo and you honestly want to reach into the book and nut punch him.  Yet their attraction and sexual tension grows and grows.  It was a tangible thing. 

    Jo and Cameron’s story was raw and full of feeling and one that will stick with me for a time.  The one thing that I loved was that Cameron helped Jo discover he self-worth and to realize she is more than just a girlfriend.  That is what a true partner does, the lift you up and make you better.  That is what Cameron did for Jo and it was bloody brilliant.....Sara

    Story
    "Dumb. Trash. Dumb trash."

    I have a requirement for myself-and that is I always finish a book once I've started it-no matter how difficult.
    That being said, Down London Road was excruciating.
    The main character, Jo was pathetic. Ugh!!
    Please, oh please...she was a contradiction with each chapter! It was so frustrating!
    This book made me feel like I ate an awful plate of French fries with chili, cheese and onions- I knew it was going to give me a tummy ache and realized, almost immediately, it wasn't worth the calories or the hours of discomfort.
    .....add the "love scenes"---Blahhhhkkk!
    Oh Jo...you are a Ho....really.
    I did enjoy the narrator. Poor thing...I hope she gets a bonus for trying to polish a pebble❤️

    "Loved it!"

    I loved this second book in the Dublin Street series. I was worried before I started that I wouldn't like Jo's character, as I didn't care for her much in the first book, but I fell in love with her almost immediately. It was a rocky start to the romance between her and Cam...he was certainly a jerk at times...but I thought that made the story more real. Relationship don't always start out perfect, and I grew to love Cam as the story progressed. I think the only thing that could have made the story better is a dual point of view. I would have loved knowing what was going through Cam's head many times. This book had the perfect mix of love, angst, intrigue, and super hot sex! I also enjoyed how the author intertwined characters from the first book, and introduced some new ones (that I can't wait to hear more about). Elle Newlands did a great job with the narration. I only have good things to say about this one. Well done Samantha Young!

    "Great read"

    I wasn't sure at first whether or not I liked Johanna, but as the book went on, I grew to really like the character. She and Cam are a great couple and Elle Newlands does a wonderful Scottish accent.

    "Lovely story"

    I loved the story. The narrator did a great job.

    Story flowed well & is in line with on Dublin Road. Can't wait to start Jamaica Lane!

    I was glad when Jo finally came out of her broken shell & became the woman I knew she was. Cam was HOT & of course had to open his mouth & say some crappy things in the beginning. I think he made up for it in the end for sure.
