Cam sighed but gave in. “Fine. You want a cup of tea?”

I nodded and followed him into his kitchen, trying to keep my eyes on anything but his muscled shoulders and tight ass. I didn’t try very hard.

Standing by his kitchen counter, I was lost in thought about the evening ahead of us as Cam made the tea and coffee, when I caught movement out of the corner of my eye. I glanced toward it and nearly had full-on heart failure at the size of the spider clinging to Cam’s kitchen tiles.

“Oh, my God!” I squealed, skittering back away from it, a lump of fear in my throat the size of Canada.

“What—what?” Cam spun around, his eyes wide on me.

I stared round-eyed at the spider. “Get rid of it or I won’t be able to move.” I wasn’t kidding. I was literally frozen with fear. I don’t know where my phobia of spiders originated, but it was bad enough that we had to invest in spider repellents that plugged into the sockets in our flat.

We got the rare few spiders nevertheless and Cole always took care of them.

Cam looked from me to the spider and then back to me again. I could see the beginning of a smile start to curl the corners of his mouth.

“Don’t even think about laughing. It’s not funny.”

His gaze softened as he seemed to finally realize the extent of my fear. “Okay. Stop panicking.

I’ll get rid of it.” He reached into a cupboard and pulled out a pan.

I scowled. “What are you doing? Don’t kill it!”

Cam froze, cocking his head in bemusement as he gazed at me. “Why don’t you want me to kill it? I thought you were frightened of it.”

“I am terrified of it.” I corrected him. “But what does it say about humans as a species if we go around killing things just because we fear them?” Not anything good, that’s what.

Cam’s gorgeous eyes warmed even more and I found myself forgetting the fear and falling into his gaze.

“What?” I whispered, feeling my chest swell at the way he was looking at me. No one had ever looked at me like that before.

He shook his head. “Nothing. You just . . . Nothing.”

“Cam?”

“Mmm-hmm?”

“The spider.”

 

He blinked a little rapidly before pinning the spider with his gaze. “Right.” He lifted the lid of the pan. “I’m not killing it. I just needed something to put it in.”

 

As he rescued the spider from me and me from the spider, I crammed myself into the corner of the kitchen, scared that Cam wouldn’t move quickly enough and the spider would somehow launch itself across the room at me. I had no reason to fear. Cam had the spider in the pan in record time and I watched with growing relief as he took it to the kitchen window and deposited it outside.

“Thank you,” I breathed.

Cam didn’t reply. Instead he shut the window carefully, put the pan by the sink, and turned around to gaze at me.

Suddenly the air felt electric between us, like it always did while we worked side by side at the bar. I’d done my darndest to make sure those moments were confined to the bar, trying to feign ordinary interaction outside in the real world.

Today there would be no feigning.

I held my breath at the intensity in Cam’s eyes as he slowly began to make his way toward me.

When he closed the distance that would be considered socially acceptable between two friends who both had partners, I was just about to question him, stall him, but then my breasts brushed his chest and the words got sucked right back into my mouth along with all the air in the room. I felt his hands in a gentle embrace around my upper arms, his aftershave familiar and intoxicating, and the heat of his body made mine languid. I hadn’t been able to meet his eyes, and so I was looking at his throat when he leaned in and pressed the sweetest kiss to my forehead. A yearning, deep and expanding, burst open in my chest and I melted into him, feeling his lips chase a delicious shiver across my skin. He replaced his mouth with his own forehead. I closed my eyes as he closed his and we rested against one another, breathing each other in. I was filled with such longing, a longing only intensified because I knew it was reciprocated.

“Cam,” I whispered, wanting him to pull away and needing him to never leave.

He groaned and gently slid his forehead down the side of mine, his nose skimming my cheek, following my jaw, and coming to rest in a nuzzle against my throat.

 

I held my breath, waiting.

 

His hot lips touched the skin there. One brush. Two.

And then I felt the wet, erotic touch of tongue and I shuddered, falling against him. My nipples pebbled against my thin shirt, begging him to go further.

A sharp, piercing ringtone shattered the air between us and I jerked back, coming to my senses.

Cam cursed, his jaw clenched so tight it was close to shattering. He reached for his phone on the counter beside us and then blanched as he read the caller ID. He shot me an unfathomable look.

“Becca,” he stated grimly.

Scotland's answer to E.L. James (Sunday Post)

This extraordinary debut combines a true gift for storytelling with a liberal dose of racy encounters. But what really sets it apart is exquisite characterisation, so vivid that the cast seeps into the reader's psyche (Daily Record)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Une lecture captivante 25 octobre 2013
Par Carla
Format:Format Kindle
Ce livre est le 2ème tome de la série On Dublin Street et je dois dire que je l'ai autant adoré que le 1er (si pas plus). Le lecteur est d'emblée captivé par le passé sombre de la protagoniste Jo et la relation amicale puis amoureuse entre Jo et Cam est parfaitement décrite. Que dire des joutes verbales de Joss rencontrée dans le premier tome. Un roman captivant dont vous ne pourrez pas arrêter la lecture.

Juin et la VF me semblait tellement loin que j'ai craqué avant... et je ne le regrette pas! Ca n'est pas un véritable coup de cœur comme d'autres romans peuvent l'être, mais on se laisse véritablement happer par le style de Samantha Young. A première vue, le résumé peut sembler niais (dixit une de mes copines de lecture pff), mais il y a beaucoup plus dans ces pages. Certes, l'action n'est pas omniprésente, mais les personnages ont une vraie consistance et c'est de là, pour moi, que ce livre tire tout son charme.

Je n'avais pas vraiment accroché avec Jo dans le tome précédent, et là, tout le talent de Samantha Young est de nous la révéler, afin de la voir réellement. La rencontre avec Cam est en ce sens assez similaire avec la perception que j'avais initialement eu de Jo, autrement une bimbo qui se cherche des hommes riches et profite d'eux...
Mais là, on ne peut que changer d'avis. Jo est réellement complexe, à la fois forte et faible. La voir se débattre avec ses sentiments pour Cam, rechercher le meilleur pour son frère, et penser qu'elle ne vaut rien, m'a vraiment touché.
Quant à Cam... Une fois qu'il aura compris son erreur de jugement sur Jo, il va tout faire pour elle, et pour l'aider à se voir telle qu'elle est réellement, et pfff... je suis définitivement accro aux Écossais! Que ce soit en kilt ou non^^

C'est romantique et sexy en diable, et la tension entre Cam et Jo est juste magnifique. Bref, j'ai aimé revoir Joss et Braden, et découvrir Olivia et Nate pour le prochain tome! Et surtout assister à cette magnifique histoire entre Jo et Cam.

Une romance New adult pétillante plein de charme , d'humour et d'addiction. J'ai beaucoup aimé le parcours de ce duo un peu atypique loin des sphères des milliardaires, plus proche de la réalité. Leur histoire est crédible , sincère et on s'y attache avec délice. Une jolie romance qui coule de source . La plume de l'auteure est envoutante et parvient à intégrer le lecteur à son histoire avec véracité et sans fioriture.

Originally posted on Goodreads

My heart is breaking. Why? *sniffle sniffle* Because I love Samantha Young and it makes me so sad that I didn't love this book. Seems I'm in the minority, though, so maybe you shouldn't listen to me. Looks like most people gave this four and five stars. So I should explain why I felt it didn't warrant that kind of rating.

I guess after Braden and Jocelyn (book one) I was expecting fireworks and rainbows. Not to say this book didn't have its moments, it just didn't have the moments I came to expect. Perhaps the bar was set too high with the first book and I went into On Dublin Street with unfair expectations. I suppose that could be the case, it's just that I know Samantha Young has the capacity to create magic, I've seen it, and there was little magic for me in this book.

Jo was okay as a character for the most part. I didn't really connect with her, though, not like I had with Jocelyn. What Joss had that Jo didn't was steadfast determination and inner strength. Whether she was right or wrong, Joss was fixed in her mission. Jo not so much. And I think I grew a little fatigued with the constant second-guessing. I wanted so much not to make comparisons between characters, but with Joss constantly showing up in this novel it was impossible not too. And it's not as if I expected Ms. Young to create a Joss clone, that's not it at all. If I expected that, I would simply go back and reread the first book. No, I didn't expect a new Braden and Jocelyn. What I expected were really well fleshed out characters that I could connect with and that's not what I felt as I read this book. Yes, Jo had her issues, they were big and ever-present, but I never really felt the inner anguish and turmoil. I wanted to, it just never happened for me. Much of Jo's strength came from Cameron, she even admits in the book that without him she would never have been able to embrace her identity, and it made her seem so weak. Her sense of selfworth was so tethered to him I couldn't get on board, and then to constantly have to hear her question his motivations made the entire process of self-discovery a little grating. Cameron kept telling her how brave and strong she was, and I guess in some respects that was true, but it was altogether nullified by her wimpering about how useless she felt and how no man could really love her because she was uneducated and simple.

Cameron was a bit easier to deal with as he was interesting and the banter between him and Jo was, at times, really funny. However, he did a few things I found unforgivable. Braden was at times an jerk, but he was never vicious. Cameron, however, was. He said a few things to Jo that totally shutdown the love for me. Calling her a whore, basically, on more than one occassion was crass and cruel. I understood it at first, as that was his initial perception of her, but once the relationship began, knowing what a trigger it was for her and saying it to injure? Not. Okay. I don't care if he was pissed, some things are not okay. Jo even admits that if he said it, the feelings must linger inside him somewhere. Yes! That's true, Jo. Truer words have never been spoken.

**SPOILERY**
I could have forgiven that had, in the process, Cameron hadn't reconnected with his old flame and acted totally inappropriate. Jo was suspicious, and rightfully so, and Cam's decision-making was absurd. What man doesn't understand that hanging out and texting with his ex is inappropriate while in a new relationship? He acted like a total A-Hole, especially when it became clear Blair wanted more than friendship from the relationship. COULD. NOT. GET. OVER. THIS. Sorry. You may disagree, and that's okay, but I think I have a unique perspective on this as I am best friends with an ex. Here's what I would never do, however: I would not allow my ex over without telling my current boyfriend; I would not allow my ex to be in my house drunk and alone with me; I would never allow my ex to shower and then wear my clothes (okay, yes, I'm a girl and that's all sorts of strange to think, but stay with me here); and I would never allow my ex to spend the night on my sofa. Cameron did all of these things without even thinking there could be a problem or letting Jo know about it. And he lives in the same building as Jo! A-Hole. On what planet is this okay?
**END OF SPOILERY**

Aside from the character flaws, I felt the novel dragged quite a bit. There were scenes I felt could have been truncated or done away with altogether. It felt like there wasn't a clear path of storytelling in Ms. Young's mind when she was putting this together. At times there was way too much going on, at others there simply wasn't enough. It was a bevy of peaks and valleys.

I did like some of the other characters who were introduced. Cole, Jo's younger brother, for one was awesome and I really liked him a lot. Mick and Olivia seemed interesting, though we weren't really offered and opportunity to get to know Olivia all that well. It was also nice to see the return of old characters. Again, Joss and Braden are back. YAY! As were Adam and Ellie, Hannah and the rest of the gang. It was also nice to get a peek at how Joss and Braden's relationship had evolved over the year period between the last book and this one.

Lastly, and this isn't so major but something that bugged me, there were a lot of grammatical errors in this book. Maybe there were in book one as well and I simply forgave them or hadn't noticed, but in this book I absolutely did. Seems like the publisher should have taken more time to edit and not worried so much about getting this released so quickly. Anyway, that's it. I didn't hate it, there were things in the book I really liked, but I also didn't love it. And that really bums me out.

We met Johanna 'Jo' Walker in On Dublin Street as Joss's co-worker at Club 39. She was out to find a wealthy man, security for her family - at all cost. But you didn't get to know Jo that well until now. She is insecure and has been beaten down her whole life. She pushes all that down with one goal in mind. Put on her mask, find a guy, make him fall in love with you and hopefully it will pay off. But all that is about to change when the hairs on the back of her neck raise, her pulse increases and her eyes met his.

'...my mind and body went to war. My body was panting, "He's hot. Can we have him?" while my mind ws screaming, "Oh, dear God, What the hell are you thinking?"

Cameron 'Cam' MacCabe is not her type. His vintage jeans - worn rock shirts and tattoos are not the signs of a man that can offer her what she needs. But there is a pull and there is a hot angst driven sexual tension. Two encounters and now he is working with her at the club moving into the flat below hers. And one night all of her walls come crashing down when he bares witness to her real life. Suddenly all the misconceptions he had about the girl he saw as a gold-digger are shattered when he realizes that she is doing this for her brother Cole.

"If we're doing this, you're going to be straight with me. In every way - including in bed. I'm not some guy you're trying to hold on to for dear life - accommodating him and forgetting about yourself and what you want. We're in this together and I just took what I wanted. Now you take what you want. So what do you want?"

Now with the air cleared between the two of them and their significant others released they are able to give into their desires. Jo is finally going after something that makes her happy. Something that leaves her with a twinge of feeling selfish for giving up the chance of money for the chance at something worth so much more - love.

Their love was not easy. With all of her self doubt and situations that just did not look great caused some heated moments and some trust issues. Passion and anger do not mix well and there gut-wrenching moments and then when her lows hit there were moments of tears. Emotions were all over the place with this read, but you just felt that they were perfect together. He was going to be the one to get her to be herself without all her armor and without the masks.

"I'm going to #%&$ you so hard, sink so deep inside of you, you'll never work me out from under your skin. Never."

'I wanted to own him in every way that I could.
I wanted him to burn with me.'

Not only do you get to fall in love with Cam and Jo, you get your taste of Braden, Joss, Ellie and Adam too. Joss and Braden are just as stubborn as ever, but you get a little surprise in the mix that will make you swoon! Ellie is just as romantic and Adam knows just how to keep her in line. Although after reading Until Fountain Bridge, I really wanted a bit more of Ellie and Adam. We meet new characters that will unfold in future stories.

I just adored ODS and DLR was no different. Samantha Young does something that few authors can accomplish. I walked away from this book with a deep connection to Jo and actually fell more in love with her than I did Cam. It is hard with these romances to sometimes get past the perfect guys - but Ms. Young does it with ease. Her insecurities were not annoying or weak, they made you want to just squeeze her and punch her worthless parents in their faces.

I'm in shock. I can't believe I'm giving two stars to a book written by the same author who wrote On Dublin Street, which was one of my favorites of 2012. I still can't quite rap my head around it.

This book was nothing like On Dublin Street. I don't mean that I expected for stories to be similar or anything, I expected to be left with the same feelings I had after I read ODS: happiness, good kind of frustration, maybe a little of sadness or heartache. After finishing this one I was left with only irritation, disbelieve and disappointment. And that are not feelings I'm looking for to be left with after reading a book.

So here are the issues that I had:

- Jo. What is she about? I kind of get it what author was trying to create. Big sister trying to look after her brother and her alcoholic mother, who is absolute nightmare to have. She is struggling to provide for them working two jobs, stressing out of her mind. She dates only rich men, as an investment into her families future (?). Her friends describes her as the strongest person they know. With a family situation like that, you have to be though as a nail. I get the idea.

* * * WARNING SPOILERS!!! * * *

Here is my problems with her character. Getting herself off while having sex with her boyfriend and thinking about Cam. Not all right! I get it. Author was trying to show her attraction to him. But do you have to push it that far? Not only I didn't find that hot or what ever, I actually thought it was kind of repulsing. Her certain parts were constantly tingling, panties vibrating in excitement (What?). I get it, Jo, you think he's hot, but pull yourself together and calm down will ya?

I didn't get why was she dating rich men. She didn't came across as a gold digger. She never asked for anything from them. Yes, she never said no to their gifts, but never asked for anything either. She never cared about any of them, there was no love. She admitted that she wasn't herself around them and they never knew the real her. Even her friends said that her constantly fake giggling around Malcolm, was most annoying thing ever. So why waist time then?

Then, there was the morning after, after she and he finally got together and did the thingy. She jumps out of bed and says "OMG we have to tell everybody that we are together." Are you freaking kidding me? You've known him for couple of weeks!!!! She knows half of rats a$$ about who he is, she doesn't know if relationship will ever work, but starts stressing out about telling people right away. All other guys, who she was dating for substantial amount of time, never got to see either her brother or her mother. And she was actually planning on marrying them if they would have asked. That just doesn't make any sense.

Then there was a scene where she quit her job and ran home to blame it on Cam, but ended up blaming on PMS. Completely unnecessary drama.

She was jealous of his ex-gilfriend, that he was with TEN YEARS AGO AND WHO SHE NEVER MET, only because he USED to be in love with her, and he haven't said I love you to her, yet! Oh Lord!

- Cam. I kind of liked him at first. His background story was alright. I thought he was being sweet when he offered a key to Cole, and meaning behind his tattoo was interesting. But one character doesn't make a story, plus, later he screwed up big time. Jo was calling him possessive caveman. I have read quite a few books with possessive men, and Cam is not even a little bit it.

- Story line. A complete mess. First half of the book dragged for ever, and after they got together hundred things started happening at once. She stressed so much to meet his parents, but when she finally did, all we got was "It was lovely, nice people, accepted her and Cole, his father loved her." We only got few lines of dialog the day after, something about freaking pancakes.

Then, Cam digs up her long lost uncle and his daughter. Ok, let the drama begin, I thought. No, they met, talked, apologized, met Cole. That reunion didn't feel like big deal at all. It should have. Then uncle Mick went to meet her mother. Again I thought, uh-oh, put your safety helmets on, people. I imagined her crawling out of her room cussing everybody or maybe even throwing things. What do you know, she came out all decent (?) looking, showered, hair blow-dried, exchanged few sentences and went back to her room. I thought maybe that will be a turning point for her. Nope. She went to her old ways, drinking herself into oblivion and being angry, after Mick left. What's the point of all of it then????

Later, after having a little steamy somethin' with Jo in changing room, they bumped into Blair, his ex from ages ago. Of course Jo went blue with jealousy. Cam, the great guy that he is, asks for her phone number so they can catch up sometimes. OMG! Jo had some kind of telepathic conversation with Blair.

"I resent you, she said. I think I hate you, I replied. He was mine first, she answered. He is mine now, I growled."
Seriously??!!

Now Jo is walking around all pissy. She comes to his place to talk about it, but ends up having gazillion orgasms. Ge goes on about that meeting Blair was just what he needed, about having a party next week and inviting Blair to catch up (??????!!!!!!). Afters fog wears off she wants to talk again, she thinks "Tell him! Ask him!". But when Cam asks "You ok?" she says "I'm fine. Just tired.".*GROWL*
But wait, she thinks it's not okay for him to keep in touch with his ex, but it is fine for her to keep texting Malcolm! I mean came on!!!

I was determend to finish the book, but that last part seriously got on my nerve, I decided to DNF before I gave myself a stroke. 79% was more than enough, returning for refund. I wonder if in those last 21% was an explanation for the book title... I will never know.

I did not like the story, at all. Confusing story line with no structure or clear direction to where story was heading, and all over the place characters.

Down London Road. Samantha Young.

I'd read some of Samantha's Young Adult works and wondered how the transition from that to Contemporary/New Adult romance would work. I bought On Dublin Street and was hooked - who wasn't. I think everyone fell in love with the delicious Braden, and the story Samantha created about him and Joss was just so entrancing that it was one of those can't-put-down novels. The characters were so real I cared about what happened to them, laughed and cried with them and when I saw Samantha was taking Joss work colleague Jo, and writing her story it was a must have.

So - Jo....she seemed quite shallow in the first book but here once we delve into her story we understand what makes her as she seems and that its really all a front for the person she keeps hidden. Once I understood that it made her motives and actions so much clearer. Then there's Cam... what a man, Nothing like Braden and yet - very much like him. He thinks Jo is a user of men, such is the appearance she gives, that she just wants to be a rich man's plaything, and to have someone to pick up the tab for her. Of course she's hiding what really goes on in her life so despite the sizzling sexual attraction between them that neither want to admit, to there are some sharp snarky comments ,and life is quite uncomfortable for Jo at first. Once I got to know Cam I loved him, he was a good man but too ready to jump to judge people at first for me to warm to him. But then I'd done the same thing with Jo in the first book and the appearances of Jo and Malcolm did make it seem that way, and as a friend of Malcolm he was just being protective.

Then the story unfolds in typical Samantha way and we get deeper and deeper into mysteries, more things come out to fit in the tale, and other people that were just names come into the picture and get involved. There are situations where there seems no way out, romance and sizzling smouldering sex scenes - Sam can write those so that the book seems to be melting away with the heat!! Some authors seem to add sex because they think its what readers want, I think Samantha adds it because its what her characters are telling her to do, they call the shots and take control. It all makes for great sensual stories and ones you want to read again and again. The best sex scenes in the world don't work for me unless there's a really good storyline, with lots of romance, love, tears and angst. They were certainly all in this book - poor Jo when she thought things had fallen apart and she'd been betrayed - Tears all round, mine too. Then, as ever, Samantha comes in with the perfect explanation - and I'd been racking my brains for a legitimate excuse over what she saw but hadn't come up with one - then read on and it all made sense...

Great to see more of Ellie's family and the way they take in everyone. Good to catch up with Joss and Braden, and a real treat of a book once again. I hope there's going to be many more :)

Well written and edited, a good length for me at 464 pages - I love long books - and priced at £3.99 its a bargain and will be one for the keepers file that I know will be re read.

Stars: well after all that it could hardly be less than five could it:) a cracker of a read for romance lovers who want people who seem real, with tears and angst, and with plenty of sex and sensuality thrown in.

I am so sorry, but I am not the type of person thatlies just to be liked. I cannot be dishonest to me or to you. I have to be true to my feelings and opinions... so here it goes.

I wanted to like this book. I enjoyed "On Dublin Street" so much my expectations for this book were high. I honestly thought this was going to be as good. Unfortunately, I didn't connect with the characters. I didn't like Johanna, so ambivalent, immature and insecure in many ways. I like strong lead females, she just didn't appeal to me. Cam was just not the type of men I like.

I bought the audio book. The narrator just killed the life out of it. The way she read this book was boring. She was whispering all the time and DID NOT emphasized, or changed the tone or raised her voice on key moments.

Mrs. Young is a good writer, I have read some other books from her. I do like her style and her stories are creative. Sometimes books/stories are good and sometimes they are not. To me, this story failed to deliver the same interest I felt for the first book in the series. I've learned there is going to be another installment about Braden and Jocelyn from "On Dublin Street", I am definitely looking forward to read that one.

My apologies to the writer.
