Fall from India Place is set about five years later than the last ODS book. I have been waiting for Hannah’s book for a while now. I really liked her in the other ODS books. It was that much more heartbreaking that she was the main reason the story didn’t work for me.

It’s been five years since Hannah Nichols last saw her first love, Marco D’Alessandro. Five long years since her heart was shattered. After years of friendship and one passion filled night, Marco took off. Never t

Samantha Young's books are instant one-clicks for me, and I had such high hopes with this one but sadly it did not meet my expectations. I mean it's On Dublin Street series and it's Samantha Young's writing, it should be great, right? But arghhhhh...

I didn't like this story at all, I didn't like the twists (pretty predictable must say, too much unnecessary drama), I didn't like characters and I didn't believe in their love story. I found nothing romantic here and sex between those two wasn't pan

The timeline for the series has been fast forwarded five years so we could get Hannah's story, Ellie and Braden's little sister. Hannah's moving forward with her life but she hasn't moved on. She hasn't been able to get over her high school crush, Marco. Little does she know, he hasn't gotten over her either.

I thought I would be a bit put off with Hannah's story, still feeling like she was too young but SY was able to let us see how she has grown up and shown her in a more mature light. I reall

After years apart Hannah has reunited with her first love Marco. But with both of them holding back secrets, will they survive a second chance romance?

I didnt like Marco. Hannah was frustrasting, dragging out her secret and then her mixed signals. I wasnt getting their connection. The double twists did not surprise me one bit and I really disliked Marcos twist. I was actually skipping some sex scenes. I could go on with what didnt work but Id rather not.

This was an adult contemporary romance story, featuring Hannah and Marco.

Hannah was an okay character in this, but she kept pushing Marco away and couldn’t seem to forgive him for what he had done. It was nice the way that Marco didn’t give up on her though.

The storyline in this was about Hannah meeting Marco again at a wedding, and finding out that he had been back in Scotland for 4 years without contacting her. Marco wanted to start a new relationship with Hannah, even after everything they ha
“When we were kids, I was in love with you … That never went away, Hannah.” He rested his forehead against mine. “And now that I know you again, I’m even more in love with you.”


I am a mad, mad fan of this series, and with this book set 5 years after the ending of the last one, I feel like this book signifies the changing of the guard – with Joss & Braden, Ellie & Adam, Jo & Cam and Liv & Nate all loved up and happy together (with babies – squee!), it’s now time for the

I was lucky enough to win an paperback ARC for this book that I read it immediately once it arrived in the mail.

In Fall from India Place, we see Hannah all grown up. The last time we saw Hannah from Before Jamaica Lane, she was in a not-altogether healthy relationship with Marco. They played the whole 'I want you but I don't want to want you game' for a long time. Readers know about Hannah's feelings about Marco and we see him push her away time and time again.

Her life is good, but there is someone missing in her life that she loves greatly – Marco, our hero, and the boy she fell head over heels in love with while in high school, but abandoned her when he abruptly leaves her after taking her virginity, leaving her broken hearted.

I expected Hanna's book since On Dublin Street, she was this outspoken, smart and super sarcastic girl, really kind of awesome, but Hanna changed as the years had passed.
The book advances 5 years in the timeline, and we are presented for a 22 year old Hanna, now a school teacher.She still is smart and make the funniest comments, but we can see that something is off with her, and as the book progress we see what happened between

This is the much anticipated story of Hannah and Marco.

Unfortunately for me I think that may have set this up to fail. I have waited forever, read 6 books, to find out what the deal is with Hannah and Marco…only to learn their issues (both) were...

I know when I pick up a Samantha Young romance I’ll be in for an addictive and hot story, but I also know she’s going to tear at my heart with some angst. Fall From India Place was no different, and as usual I loved it!

Hannah the sweet little sister we all grew to love in the previous books is all grown up, at twenty-two but she’s changed. No longer is she open and outgoing, she’s more cautious and guarded. Having Marco, her first love, crush her heart and leave her with no explanation

What a wonderful surprise! I put off continuing this series because the next one was about Hannah and I watched her grow up. She’s become like a wee sister to me. I didn’t think I could stomach reading about her sex life. But Samantha Young did a great job with creating a strong, independent woman.

I struggled through the beginning because of all the flash backs. I was rolling my eyes very hard when each one appeared. Just start the story at the beginning and tell it all the way through

I was really excited when I finally got to read Hannah's story, but now that I'm finished, I can't say I liked it. I am disappointed. This was not the book I'd thought it would be. There were parts when I felt I was gonna like it, but then something happened that made me change my mind.

Hannah was really annoying! I didn't like her because fo her insecurities. I get it, Hannah: you felt in love with Marco, but then he broke your heart, so now you feel like you can't have a relationship with a

It's been 5 years since the old Hannah Nichols died. Hannah used to be a happy, sweet, open girl until the night that changed her forever. She is still a nice person but more reserved, more afraid and she doesn't let people get too close. The reason behind her change, Marco D'Alessandro is now back and he wants into her life again. Although she still wants him, he's the only guy she ever wanted, she is afraid to try again with him. What if he hurts her again? Maybe Marco i

Fall From India Place is the fourth book in the On Dublin Street series. Since I have such a bad time reviewing romance books, purely because of the fact I have close to nothing to really say, I'm going to keep this review short and sweet with none of the usual structure I seem to have.

This book tells the story of two characters who were previously featured in the stories. Hannah and Marco. Their story was a sad one and I admittedly found myself crying at one stage. I really enjoyed this story
Hannah was first introduced to us as a teenager who was quirky, smart, funny bookworm with a quietly strong backbone…an inner strength. So I was excited to read about Hannah as a more grown up young woman. We learned about Marco – her crush and how this usually standoffish troubled boy had saved her from bullies and a friendship ensued which of course leads to deeper feelings. But something happens and all we know is he’s gone. That’s really all we get until this book.

When Hannah Nichols last saw Marco D’Alessandro, five long years ago, he broke her heart. The bad boy with a hidden sweet side was the only guy Hannah ever loved—and the only man she’s ever been with. After one intense night of giving into temptation, Marco took off, leaving Scotland and Hannah behind. Shattered by the consequences of their night together, Hannah has never truly moved on.

Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco’s life, something he has deeply regrette

Well that was awesome! Emotional and angsty and messy and all around awesome.

I feel like I have a slightly different take on this book than most people. I like the messy and confusing and the hurting books. The heartbreak, the trust issues, all of that. These characters had so much going on and so many things to work through, I was hooked and loved it.

I can see where some people might have gotten frustrated with Hannah, but I think she might've actually been my favourite heroine of the series.

If you haven't noticed, I am totally bingeing on the On Dublin Street series. Even though this book was my least favorite, I'm still having a lot of fun reading these books. For me, this book suffered from too much back and forth drama (more on that later). Because of that I got reader whiplash and didn't enjoy the story as much as the previous books in the series.

Fall From India Place is set five years into the future. This time it's Hannah Nichols's turn in the spotlight. Over the last few

So....Marco D'Alessandro? *shivers* Even his name sounds sexy. I already know he's going to end up on my list of favourite book boyfriends. It's always the trend with Ms Young's alpha male heroes.

Why the 2-star rating? I didn't like Marco, at all. After reading the scene where he left Hannah, it left a sour taste in my mouth. Because I know it's a HEA I know why they ended up together but I don't think it was fair to Hannah. She deserved so much more and Marco was not it.
It really pissed me off after all the bullshit Marco put Hannah through, he goes and lies about something so important? Uh uh. I didn't care for Marco's twist. It made me like him even less.

Putting aside Hannah, I like everything about this book. The story is very very simple. Marco and Hannah has been friend since high school. They bonded over their loneliness. Their friendship very soon develop into lust. And on 1 magical night, they give in into their lust. Then Marco made a bad decision by leaving Hannah.

5 years on, they were given second chance. In Miss Young hands, the story is turning into a melancholic dramatic story. I do love the push and pull between Marco and Hannah. I

**2.5 Lacklustre Stars**

Ended at 78%! REALLY??!! With 8% wasted at the start by reintroducing all the past characters, that was a read of only 70%. Might I suggest a list of who's who at the start of the next book, without having to eat into the story??? Anyway, this was a disappointing read for me. I gave all the others in this series 5 stars, but this had some things going on with it that I really didn't like.

3.5 There's nobody quite like Braden stars.

This felt a little like it was trying to recapture the magic of Braden and Jose's story but it was missing a certain indefinable something for me and didn't quite hit the spot. Marco was a mysterious, handsome alpha (supposedly) but he just didn't quite come alive and jump from the page for me. (Yeah OK so Braden has never actually come to life and jumped from the page either but I'm all set to catch him if he ever does.)

Oh this book - *bangs head on the table for a few minutes* Okay, I'm ready now.

I've really enjoyed the books in this series and up until this book, I've really liked that this author has stayed with this core group of friends and revisits the other couples in each book so we can continue to get a glimpse at their lives. That being said, I need a family/friend tree moving forward. There are so many couples now with kids running around and some siblings, some are half-siblings, some are just best
