Revue de presse

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

This steamy romance is mysterious, all-consuming and pretty damn good (Closer)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Before Jamaica Lane is the brilliant romantic follow-up to On Dublin Street and Down London Road from bestselling author Samantha Young

Edinburgh was going to be a fresh start for Olivia Holloway. Crippled by shyness around the opposite sex, Olivia nevertheless meets gorgeous postgraduate Nate Sawyer and decides it is time to push her fears aside.

Before long, Olivia and Nate form a close friendship and she finds herself confessing her deepest secrets, and Nate, being her best friend, offers to teach her the art of flirting. As Olivia and Nate's friendship turns intense it soon blossoms into a passionate love affair.

For the first time Olivia opens her heart but what she doesn't realise is that Nate has his own fears and just when she finds herself hopelessly falling for him, Nate's past returns to haunt him.

Will Nate have the courage to confide in Olivia, or will he cut and run? And can Olivia face up to her own fears and keep him?

Before Jamaica Lane charts the love trials of characters introduced in Samantha Young's bestselling prequel, On Dublin Street, and Down London Road.

Comment dire ... ce 3ème opus de Samatha Young sur la bande de copains qui s'est formée autour du 1er tome On Dublin Street, est aussi délicieux que les 2 précédents. J'ai dévoré ce livre, j'ai vibré avec les personnages, à l'histoire passionnée et tourmentée , avant qu'ils n'atteignent ce "happily ever after" que l'auteure leur offre systématiquement depuis le début de la saga. Voilà en fait le seul reproche que l'on peut trouver à cette lecture : après m'être régalée de On Dublin Street et Down London Road, on retrouve une symétrie dans chacune de ses intrigues ... Mais c'est tellement bon qu'on en redemande encore !

J'ai tout adoré, spécialement l'héroïne. Et j'ai adoré lorsque le héros essaie de retrouver ses faveurs. Bref, à lire absolument. :)

Il y a de bonnes choses, notamment les scènes de sexe, Samantha Young est vraiment bonne dans cette catégorie, et les personnages sont attachants, là aussi, le livre est réussi et pour ces catégories, il mériterait au moins 4 voir 5 étoiles.
Par contre, j'ai trouvé le premier tiers du roman tellement ennuyeux que j'en ai sauté de grandes parties, on aurait dit qu'elle étalait la confiture et on se demande quand l'histoire va vraiment démarrer.

Autre chose agaçante - ATTENTION SPOILER - Ce que je vais écrire contient des éléments qui révèlent des éléments de la fin du roman et de l'épilogue (non pas que l'intrigue soit digne d'un Dan Brown non plus..).
Deux des personnages féminins tombent enceintes par surprise alors qu'elles sont censées prendre la pilule, et l'annoncent à leur compagnon pour qui c'est la surprise du siècle.
Je m'interroge : comment est-ce possible au 21ème siècle qu'un couple puisse mettre un enfant au monde sans en parler ensemble avant et sans que cela entre dans un projet commun ? Et comment est-ce possible, quand on a 26 ans et qu'on prend la pilule, qu'on puisse découvrir qu'on est enceinte par surprise : oh, mais, ça alors, je me suis levée avec envie de vomir, je me demande bien ce qui m'arrive !!!! Comment ? Docteur, vous voulez dire que quand un homme met sa zigounette dans le ventre d'une femme qui n'est pas sous contraceptif, elle peut tomber enceinte ? Incroyable !
Cela donne au roman un côté "petite maison dans la prairie" qui ne va pas du tout avec les personnages soi-disant modernes et libérés.

Par Danielle - Publié sur Amazon.com

The thing that comes to mind when I think of Before Jamaica Lane is plot. And I mean it had none.

I loved this author's Hero, but it seems each book in the On Dublin Street series is worse than its predecessor.

Before Jamaica Lane relies on its characters and relationships already developed in the stories before. Conversations and interactions that someone might find entertaining if they loved the characters from the earlier books, but I couldn't help being bored out of my ever-loving mind. It's rare when I care enough about a book couple to want to hear about them again, and unfortunately, I cared nothing for Joss' wedding and the rehashing of everyone's damn relationships. I'd be more entertained listening to my grandmother talk for three hours about each detail of her knitting me that Christmas scarf.

And then, let's get to the point of the heroine who had one flaw I can't stand: self-consciousness. She hated her body; called herself fat. Ugh.

To be honest, the factor of their relationship - friends until Olivia asks the hero to help her learn the ropes of talking to men - was sexy and entertaining. But that part was like %15 of the book.

The plot was uncompelling, the conversations were dull, and the characters seemed lifeless. I'm pretty sure I'm majorly in the minority. So if you enjoyed the earlier books in the series and are fine with zero plot then give this one a try.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I didn’t care. It was hard to stay interested so I started skimming at half way. 2 décembre 2015

STORY BRIEF:
Nate and Olivia are good buddies. They play video games and watch movies. She had sex once in high school but never since. She is tongue tied and too shy to talk to guys. She thinks she is unattractive She works in a library and has a crush on Ben who comes there. When drunk one night she tells this to Nate, so he offers to help her. He shows her that her body is desirable. They practice flirting conversation. She asks him to teach her how to kiss. She’s starting to lust for Nate. Then she asks him to have sex with her to teach her. They have sex frequently for several weeks.

I love stories where the guy desires her and wants her. But that is not here. She asks the guy to do things. I want him to want to kiss her, not kiss her because she asked. Subconsciously he’s falling for her but he won’t admit that to himself or to her. So that made it bland for me. I was rooting for Olivia and Ben to get together. Ben liked her. But alas, that doesn’t happen because Olivia wants Nate. She later spends time with Ben but leaves him for Nate.

A few times the author used flashbacks which annoyed me. The story starts with Olivia and Nate with a group of friends. Then Olivia remembers how she met Nate - a flashback. Later she and Nate are walking home after a wedding, then there is a flashback to earlier in the day about how the wedding went. That was jarring and unnecessary - almost as if it was too much trouble to write the story chronologically. A short flashback "tells" what happened instead of "shows."

I don’t like first person books unless the story is really great. This book was first person which made it harder for me to get into.

I enjoyed the first two books in the series more than this (even though they were first person). This is book 3.

DATA:
Narrative mode: 1st person Olivia. Story length: 310 pages. Swearing language: strong including religious swear words but not often used. Sexual language: strong. Number of sex scenes: more than six. Setting: current day Scotland. Copyright: 2014. Genre: contemporary romance.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Slow start...good ending. A little too expensive though 28 février 2016

No cliffhanger
Standalone though part of a larger series
Told from Olivia's POV only
Minor editing errors

I absolutely loved the first book in this series and I had high hopes for this one. It was $7.99 which is way more than I usually spend on books but again, I figured it would be worth it based on the first book in the series. It had a pretty slow start and I started to question my purchase but then it picked up.

Olivia and Nate meet through a mutual friend. The become fast friends and even though Olivia is attracted to Nate she hides it assuming there is no way he could feel the same way.

Due to her lack of confidence she is super shy around men she is attracted to. One night she gets drunk and admits to Nate that she has only ever been with one man and doesn't want to be alone anymore. Nate agrees to "teach" her everything she needs to know to get a man.

Sexy time ensues and true feelings get involved. I don't want to give anything away but Nate's fear of commitment causes him to push Olivia away and break her heart. By the time he realizes he is an idiot it might be too late to save his relationship.

Usually, the best love stories come along slowly- there is build up, friendship, understanding, and desire….all the stuff that relationships actually contain. ‘Before Jamaica Lane’ has all of that and more.

The main characters are friends first and have a flirtatious relationship that takes on a ‘please help me come out of my shell because I am a shy American girl living in a foreign country surrounded by hot men who I want a piece of’ al la Olivia. Well she is not that blunt- but that is the beginning of her lessons with the yummy, self-processed man whore that is Nate. I am not going into their lessons- but they make the grade ;)

While this is a story that I have read before- there is something about the writing of Samantha Young that is great. She keeps the story fresh and fun with great understanding of her characters and it makes sense about their choices- which is becoming less common the more I read. Her characters deal with the complications of love and figuring out who they are while trying to hold onto the one they love. There is a fine line between letting go and holding on to what you thought life is supposed to be and Young does a great job of keeping it real.

I have read one other tale in this series- and the characters keep coming up in each so I may have to break down and buy the other stories.

Some of the back story slowed it down for me-

Overall, it was an interesting, sweet, quick, sexy read that was worth the journey down Jamaica lane.

4.5 stars

This story begins with Olivia trying to find the courage to talk to a guy that has been coming into the library where she works for months. After watching her mother suffer with cancer during her teenage years only to loose her, Olivia feels she is not good enough for any guy and isn't even comfortable enough to flirt. Guys in general fluster her...all guys, except Nate.

Nate and Olivia clicked the moment they met and share common loss from their past. But Nate is a man whore and Olivia knows expecting anything more than friendship from him will only end in heartbreak.

One night after drinking at her friends wedding, Olivia has the brilliant idea that who better than a man whore to teach her how to be comfortable with men. She pitches her idea to Nate and he is instantly game.

In one night, their relationship changes and the more time they spend together, the more the lines blur. When Olivia comes to terms with the fact that her heart in involved will she ever be able to go back to a just friends relationship with Nate?

This is the 3rd book in the "On Dublin Street" series. You can read it as a standalone but the characters from the previous books are featured heavily do it is more enjoyable if you have read their stories and know what came before.

I really liked Olivia and Nate. When we see them at the beginning, their friendship is a fun one...they are just themselves when they are together and completely honest with each other. Once things start to heat up, the honesty only creates more intensity in their relationship.

This story made me laugh out loud at times and brought a tear to my eyes at others. It is the perfect balance of emotions, angst, heat, heartbreak and love.

My thoughts:

POV: Olivia
Quick hook or slow starter? 4.5 (I liked the characters from the start and couldn't wait to see what happened next)
Character development: 4.5
Level of Romance between characters: 4.5
Passion/Heat level: 4.5 (it takes a little time to build up to the heat but once they get going, it is hot!)
Angst/Heartbreak: 4.5 (these two have some serious baggage and are extremely stubborn which leads to some angst you moments)
Cliffhanger?: No, it is all wrapped up with a great epilogue in the end.

Overall, I thought it was a great read and I can't wait to read the next book in this series.
