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.

    "Loved It"

    I have to say WOW! I found some parallels between Jocelyn and Nicki from the Stark Trilogy. Jocelyn left the US for Scotland to leave her past and her tragedies behind her. She meets her new roomate's brother and the sparks fly. However, Bradon isn't content to let her hide behind her walls. Jocelyn really puts a fight about even getting involved with Bradon, there's plenty of sexual tension and drama. If you liked the Stark Trilogy you will like this book also. The narration was excellent. This book is for adults only. Worth the credit or cash.

    Story
    "Perfect mix of: Character, humor, sex and story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of On Dublin Street to be better than the print version?

    yes, I love Paula Costello, she brought the book to life. Great accent, and perfect read of wit, and sarcasm. Not a dull note.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hard to pick between Joss and Braeden. I loved Joss for her strength, and stubbornness, and her humor, but I loved Braeden, for his sexiness, and his love for Joss


    Which scene was your favorite?

    In the beginning when she walked out of the shower, you knew it was just the end of both of them


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to audiobooks everyday! I love them, and I even listen to them more than once. This book I completed, and had to listen to again right away. I could not get enough of the story, the narration, the accent. It is just a great book. I know the author has other novellas, and stories. I just hope they have another book about Joss & Braedan, and a longer book, not a novella, about Els and Adam.

    Story
    "Sexy & emotional, a perfect mix!"
    What made the experience of listening to On Dublin Street the most enjoyable?

    Paula pulled off the characters accents and personalities perfectly!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jocelyn and Braden, I loved the way they worked together, even when they didn't.


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

    Braden. Paula makes it easy to forget that she's narrating his voice too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It took me a while to get through this but only because this was one of my first audiobooks and I was still getting used to them. I can see myself listening to this in a day of I were to hear it again. Which I plan to.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of those books that I’ve had for freaking ever! I’ve been wanting to read it but it kept getting pushed down my kindle. When Megan told me to try out the audiobook I knew I had to try it because her recommendations haven’t let me down. My last two experiences with audiobooks weren’t that good. (Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince) It ended up taking me almost 3 weeks to get through each one! I was immediately hooked on this story and I finished this one in two days. I’m mentally kicking myself for not reading this one sooner.<br/><br/>After Jocelyn’s parents and sister die in a car crash, Jocelyn grows up in the foster care system. Years later, she ends up in Scotland and is looking for a new roommate. She ends up living with Ellie who so happens to have a super hot older brother, Braden. After several chemistry-heavy encounters, Braden proposes for him and Jocelyn to have a no-strings attached relationship for three months. It takes some convincing, but Jocelyn ends up agreeing, especially since this actually ends up working in her favor seeing as she doesn’t attach herself emotionally to other people.<br/><br/>After their first time getting it on, it’s clear that this no-strings attached deal isn’t going to go as smoothly as they hoped. For one, Jocelyn freaks out when Braden tries to cuddle after sex. The horror! She doesn’t understand why Braden wants to spend the night with her or take her out on a date. I love this about her! I love that it was the guy chasing after the girl. I loved that he had to talk her into things, calm her down and even trick her into taking her to dinner. Just when Jocelyn starts to realize that she has real feelings for Braden, she is reminded of how fast she can lose the people she loves, which causes her to push away not only Braden but Ellie as well. But Braden isn’t giving up on Jocelyn and he isn’t going down without a fight. This made me love him so much and only added to his hotness factor.<br/><br/>I hate to admit that it took me a little while to get used to the accents on the audiobook. I’m one of those weird people that does not like accents and does not find them sexy (except for Ed Westwick). I do think that the narrator did a fantastic job with them but when I first heard her Braden and Ellie voices, I couldn’t help but think of Brave. I’m so glad I finally read this one. It was funny, emotional and so freaking hot! I loved the secondary characters (Ellie and Adam) who ended up stealing more than a few scenes. I definitely plan on continuing with the Dublin series!

    Story
    "Poorly written, tolerable performance"
    What disappointed you about On Dublin Street?

    I bought this book based on the 5 star reviews and high praise. This book was a great disappointment. I stuck it out to see if the story redeemed itself. Nope. <br/>The protagonist spent so much time on inner dialogue and self castigation it was hard to find a plot or story.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't bother.

    Story
    "Could have been better"
    What did you like best about On Dublin Street? What did you like least?

    The narrator showed skill in changing from an Scottish accent to American to English.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most interesting...the struggle the main character had in accepting her family's death.


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

    She did well with the different accents of the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    This could have been a nice love story. The friendships portrayed were very warming, but the crude language between Brayden and Joselyn mostly had me cringing.

    "Wonderful"

    This is a wonderful story Jocelyn with her demon's and many masks who never wants to feel again after her family is killed in a car accident. Then she moves into Dublin St and meets the man who will slowly seep into her soul Braden Carmichael and try as she might fall in love with him and his family. The narration is fantastic by Paula Costello. Wonderful book by Samantha.

    Story
    "Sassy and incredibly sexy"
    Where does On Dublin Street rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks pretty high...by far the best story narrated.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hands down no-nonsense-tell-it-like-it-is Joselyn (Joss) Buttler.


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

    Paula Costello's did an amazing job of capturing all the characters nuances and help me identify with each one.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me cry somewhat..."untrustworthy cold bitch"


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to this book more times that I can count...the sex scenes are hot but the story of these two individuals is heartwarming.

    No, but she is by far the best narrator I've heard so far.
