I'm sorry. I really like Ellie and I also really like Adam but their love story if that is what you want to call it sucks big hairy balls! Just sayin'! So Ellie has been in love with Adam since she was 14. Adam has been in love with her since she turned 18, but he was scared of losing his best friend Braden(Ellie's brother) over starting something with his sister if it went south. So instead for the next few years he sends her mixed signals, pushes her away, hurts her

When I've read On Dublin Street, I did not only fall in love with Joss and Braden but I also swooned over Ellie Carmichael and Adam Sutherland. This couple is so cute! That's why after discovering that these characters have a novella, I meant to read it immediately. Now after finishing this story, I was once again hooked. Samantha Young made me fall in love with her characters and the way she created a brilliant love story.

I can't stop smiling all throughout the book as Ellie and Adam's story

I absolutely adored this book. I had a stupid smile on my face all the time because this was soooo sweet, yet hot, yet adorable... LOVED IT!

If you have read On Dublin Street, you know Ellie is Braden's little sister and Adam is Braden's best friend. Ellie has a crush on Adam since she's 14 years old and she's been writing about this in her diaries. I must say I loved the way the author told us their story.

Samantha Young, starts this novella with a shout out to her readers, a thank you of sorts for our interest in the story of Ellie and Adam, so with that in mind I thought I would follow suit and thank Samantha Young for allowing us a little more story for the couple that played a back ground role in 'on Dublin street' but actually stole our hearts.

I absolutely adored this little slice of heaven!

I loved Adam and Ellie from “On Dublin Street” and I remember when I was reading it, there were times where I was more interested in them than I was in Braden and Joss!

And this is why!

Because their story is so beautiful and subtly intense. I mean, here’s Ellie who has been unabashedly in love Adam since she was ten years old. And then there’s Adam who’s always been in love with her but secretly and very hesitantly.

After finishing On Dublin Street and loving it, I really wanted to know more about Adam and Ellie’s romance. Well, the author satisfied my wishes by telling their touching story in a unique way, and I ABSOLUTELY loved it!

All who read On Dublin Street know a little of Ellie and Adam, Braden’s little sister and his best friend respectively. You knew they had feelings for each other, but something was holding them back for much of the book. I loved when they finally got together, but I longed to k

Until Fountain Bridge tells the story of Ellie and Adam's romance through Ellie's diary entries. At first, I thought it might be a little cheesy but as I continuing reading, I found it quite romantic and endearing.


I guess it helped that Ellie was showing them to Adam to read so they were both reliving their histories. Ellie has loved Adam since she was ten years old and was often made to feel like a kid by him and sent confusing messages as she got older. We get to feel her hurt and it showed A
This is a sweet love story of how Adam and Ellie fell in love...

I was Ellie, Braden’s little sister. To Adam I would always be Braden’s little sister, and that meant I was off limits.

The story began when Ellie was sorting her stuffs in Adam's duplex since she moved there 3 months ago, finding what she was looking for, her diaries, Adam saw her and was eager to know what her feelings for him back then...

This was an adult contemporary romance story, told mainly in flashbacks.

Ellie and Adam were alright characters in this, and they were pretty sweet together. It was also nice to find out more about their history, which stretched back years.

The storyline in this was told in the form of flashbacks based on reading Ellie’s diary, and told the story of Adam and Ellie from when Ellie was 14 years old and onwards. This was mainly about Adam saving her from bullies and treating her like a sister (whic

Adam’s and Ellie’s story brought back memories of how much I enjoyed reading about EVERYONE in On Dublin Street when there was only one book written… Now there are several more books to enjoy.

I’ll be gathering some quotes and posting a rating/review soon!
4.5 Happy Stars!

This is Ellie and Adam's story whom we met and fell hard for in the first installment, On Dublin Street.

This short read showcases the highlights in their road to HEA through the reading of Ellie's journals.

This is a novella. Short sweet with all of " On Dublin Street" heart warming story. Adam and Ellie were introduced on the " On Dublin Street". If you read it, then you know Ellie has been in love with Adam. While Adam treats her as off limit. I wish that Miss Young can give Ellie and Adam a full story novel instead of novella.

Now the story is told from Ellie POV by reading her diary. Even though Miss Young done a good job making the whole story romantic, I can not help feeling, Ellie is trying
Ellie shares her diaries (and her lifelong obsession) with fiancee Adam.

Loved it. Clever idea and wonderful, emotional writing. The reader is taken on a journey that shows the friendship that started as a crush (by Ellie, at age 14) on her brother's best friend (Adam) and how it developed into a love story filled with highs and lows. Poor Ellie--Adam really put her through the ringer!

This is the story about Elie falling in love with her brother's best friend, Adam, told through her diary entries which she began when she was fourteen years old.

Elie has been in love with Adam for as long as she can remember. He is her strong, confident protector and all others pale in comparison. Convinced he will forever see her as his best friend's "wee sister" she decides it's time to move on... if only he would let her!

I still don't like Ellie all that much. Too naive and romantic for my tastes but she is a strong person and Adam didn't deserve her. I didn't see any kind of connection between them but that's ok, it was just a short story and it was enjoyable enough without being anything remarkable.

It's been years since I read ON DUBLIN STREET by Samantha Young and I had a sudden envy to go back to this series. I don't know why I never kept reading it but I'm pretty sure I've been missing out big time.

Okay, it's safe to say I absolutely loved Adam and Ellie's bumpy road to love and happiness!! I loved how Samantha Young told Ellie's story of falling in love with Adam when she was 14 years old through her diaries and, how Adam eventually and finally admitted his love for her. It's a very sweet and passion filled love story.

This was cute!!!

It was an interesting format in that is goes in goes back and forth between past and present through them reading her diary entries.

I loved Ellie in the first book so I was so excited to read more about her. Whilst I was definitely rooting for them to be together Adam frustrated me way too much with all the mixed signals he would send.

I think Samantha Young has a thing for making lovely wonderful female protagonists and male love interests that simply are not good enough for th

It's a short story of Ellie and Adam. I wasn't that interested but decided to try it anyway.

It was cool to see their friendship and then how they slowly became lovers. Overall, it's good.

From living in Ellie's diaries to sitting next to her and reading them is the journey of Adam's life.

Wow! This little novella is just perfect. It's sweet and sad at the same time. Seriously, I teared up once or twice while reading it. Ellie has been in love with Adam all her life but Adam being older brother Braden's best friend only sees her as Braden's little sister. But not for long.

This novella focuses of Adam and Ellie's story. I loved Ellie in On Dublin Street, and unlike other characters who were wonderful in one book then completely changes when the spotlight is on them, Ellie remained
So I need to start this review by saying that I am a MASSIVE fan of On Dublin Street, so this book was always going to be a winner for me! Particularly because I loved Ellie in that book, and I loved Ellie and Adam together, so I couldn’t wait to get the full story from their perspective. And it was everything I wanted!

Their story is told mainly in flashback. In the present day, Ellie and Adam are together, and looking back at Ellie’s old diaries, so we get the opportunity to see the main turnin
I really loved this novella and the way the story was told!

It's been three months since Ellie and Adam have moved in together and Ellie is looking for her old diaries. She thinks they will be good material for Joss' next romance novel. Adam enters in the room and since he seems interested by her diairies she lets him read them and selects key passages.

Through the diaries we travel back and discover the evolution of Ellie and Adam's story until they finally end up together. Their story really mo

Until Fountain Bridge is a look in to Adam and Ellie's relationship. The story begins where On Dublin Street ended....with Ellie moving in with Adam. She is unpacking journals that she has kept over the years.

She and Adam basically take a trip down memory lane, reading some of the journal entries...giving us a look at when Ellie and Adam fell in love as well as thier POV from a few On Dublin Street scenes.

This was a quick, sweet, moderately steamy read that I think fans of On Dublin Street wil
