On Dublin Street (On Dublin Street, #1) - Samantha Young This was such an intense journey filled with a wide range of emotions, romance, humorous banter, and a lot of sexual tension/chemistry!Braden to Jocelyn: “Gentlemen are gentlemen in bed. They make sure you're having a good time.I'll make sure you're having a good time, and that you're okay with everything. I just won't be well mannered about it.”On Dublin Street is a novel about a woman who tries to get a fresh start at life by moving from the U.S. to Scotland. Four years before the move, a tragedy occurred that changed not only Jocelyn Butler's life but her as a person as well. While looking for a new place to live, Jocelyn meets Braden, a charming, attractive, and flirtatious stranger. There is an instant spark between the two of them. Though their cab ride is relatively short, fate ends up bringing Braden into Jocelyn's life, whether she wants it or not :)I felt like Braden was a very good match for Jocelyn. He pushed her in ways that helped her move past her fears and helped show her that she can depend on others.Braden: “After last night, there’s no denying the promise of what’s between us. I’m not backing off, so rather than coming up with a new defense – which I’m sure I’d find highly entertaining – just give in, babe. You know you’re going to eventually.” Not to mention their sexual banter was hilarious!Jocelyn: “Braden, I don't want anything to happen between us."He raised his eyebrow, clearly unconvinced."Tell that to your damp knickers, babe.”There were a few times that I got a little frustrated with Jocelyn because she would let her fears hinder her from moving forward with her future and damaged her relationships with others. But honestly, if I had to deal with the loss that Jocelyn did, I would probably be the same way. Jocelyn is sweet, smart, sarcastic, and hilarious so I loved her character anyway. And what can I say about Braden... He is HOT, charming, possessive, witty, and just an all around great guy! He is by far, one of my all time favorite book boyfriends! There were several times during this story that my stomach did flip flops because of something Braden did or said. 5 stars for On Dublin Street
