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.

Incredibly passionate and downright romantic, On Dublin Street is a captivating and bittersweet story of the redemptive power of love.

Cover:  A rather sexy cover.  Not my favourite cover, but I do like it.  And I appreciate that it's not a Fifty Shades type cover, i.e. an artsy photo of a piece of jewelry or a shoe or something like that.

I've read a couple of books in this series- but I've read them out of order (bad Erin!).
I liked them, but didn't love them.  But I still enjoyed them enough that I still wanted to go back and read the first books in the series.
And this one- I loved.  This was a great adult contemporary read.
The chemistry between Joss and Braden set my Kindle on fire.
I loved them.  Braden is an unapologetic caveman.  And I can't lie- I love me some possessive heroes.
I really felt for Jocelyn.  She's lost everyone in her life that she's ever loved- so she spends her life pushing people away, making sure nobody gets close.  Reluctant to lose someone again.
If they can't get close, it can't hurt to lose them.
But Braden and his sister Ellie make that difficult.
I loved this one.  Seeing Braden relentlessly pursue Joss.  Breaking down her walls.
If you love adult contemporary reads- with some serious steam, I definitely recommend picking this one up.
4.5/5 stars.

Read from May 31 to June 03, 2015
