As a side note
My review of Down London Road is negative. Recently I have been accused of bullying for posting another negative review. Again, reading and reviewing is a very subjective matter. A review reflects my opinion. It reflects my feelings and it will always reflect why I enjoyed a book or why I didn't like it. Besides, I'm living in a democratic country and if I remember correctly then

4.5 Stars!!!!

Okay. On Dublin Street was one of my favorites last year. Braden Carmichael is one of my top book boyfriends... I had really high expectations for this one. It wasn’t quite as good as ODS for me, but I still really enjoyed it!

In ODS we meet Jo. Jo is friends with Joss, they work together at the bar. On the outside, we see a good looking blonde, a gold digger who only dates rich men.

But those that know the real Jo, the person on the inside know that is not the case.

*2.5 Stars*

A largely uneventful read...

To be fair, I'll list some of my pros and cons:

What I liked
-Cole and Hanna were some of the coolest teens ever to grace a story!
-The initial tension build up between Cam and Jo was fun.
-Joss and Braden still being a strong part of story was awesome.
-The strong sense of family and togetherness between friends was heartwarming.

What didn't work for me
-I understood Jo's insecurities, but her self-depreciation was over-the-top and didnt feel natural.

My emotions runeth over with extreme happiness!! This book was so good.. so so so good. I loved it. Ask me if I loved it.. are you asking?? I LOVED THIS FREAKING BOOK. Did it live up to the hype?? Hell YEA! Did I totally love Cam and Jo? Hell Yea! Wow! The only thing I did not like about this book was how fucking long I had to wait for it!!! It seemed like forever and a day between Dublin and London. Why do we have to wait so long for such awesomeness I ask you??

I am very sorry, really really sorry because I wanted to LOVE this book but it didn't happen. I loved Samantha Young when I read On Dublin Street & Until Fountain Bridge. They were WOW, amazing books, re-read worth it so I had expectations for this one... The thing is, in life you better have no expectations at all so you are not disappointed, right?

I must say I love Samantha's writing style and I will read more

We first met Jo briefly "On Dublin Street", what I saw was a gorgeous, confident young woman but a gold digging, money grabber, who worked at Club 39 with Joss, and when she wasn't pulling pints she was basically trying to pull any rich bloke who could kit her out in all the latest fashions.......Well thats what I saw.........

When I first heard that Jo was going to be the heroine of Down Dublin Road I admit to being skeptical..
In On Dublin Street,Jo was known for going after wealthy men, and she was portrayed as a simple gold digger.
In Down Dublin Road, we learn that things aren't always as they seem, and that Jo has hidden depths..

Jo is actually living a very bad life.Her dad was an abusive bastard who went to jail when she was 12, leaving Jo, her alcoholic mother, and her baby brother, Cole. Jo works ve

This series is really close to my heart, and each book has its unique story and characters.
Having suffered and laughed with Joss and Braden, now we do it all again but with Jo and Cam.
We know Jo from the first book, she is Joss's colleague and a good friend. Their relationship will go deeper in this book, and I enjoyed seeing the 2 of them together, so connected to each other and eager to help.

So, you all met Jo. She is smart, beautiful, caring, but with a bad background. She was abandoned by h

This is a damn good book. This story that made me laugh, cry, and smile. I always appreciate a well-developed friends-turn-lovers story. And one of the reasons I loved this book so much is that there was no insta-love crap going on here. Sure, there was an instant spark of attraction the first time Cam and Jo meet, but the romance between Jo and Cam is a slow yet sizzling burn. The sexual tension between these two could melt butter.

I’d never felt so intensely attracted to someone before. Us

Oh my stars!!! Down London Road was sheer perfection!! My heart is soaring after turning the last page!! It had everything I love and want in a romance, and more!!

Ahhemm*clear throat*

So this story is about Joe.

Joe has responsibilities. Big responsibilities. She has to take care of her alcoholic/sick mother and her younger brother Cole. Joe loves Cole. Whatever she does she does it for him. She wants him happy and safe. She wants him not feel what she've felt and what she's going through.

He was my saving grace.

This is how things went for me....

20%--This is kind of slow!

40%--Nothing's happening!

60%--Is anything going to happen? Ever?

75%--Finally...bring on some drama!

And then it just kept coming and coming and coming. And I saw it all coming and coming and coming. It was just too predictable.

So maybe I should not be rating this since i abandoned at 25% but I mean really I had such high hopes and this book sucked. I paid 7.99 for a sucky book. I think Samantha Young is very talented and I absolutely loved On Dublin Street so I'm not sure where this book went wrong. I couldn't connect with the characters and with over 900 books on my TBR list I can't waste my time on something and force myself to finish it just to continue to hate it...

Samantha Young is the real deal...

One of the signs of a good writer (to me) is when you can take a character who I was not that thrilled with in a previous work, and make me fall in love with them in your latest. And that is what Samantha Young has done with the character of Jo Walker. In On Dublin Street I wasn't all that thrilled with her (even though I was sure there had to be a story about why she was such a slut looking for her next Sugar Daddy). I know there were some hints about her past,

Okay, I am going to try and keep this review nice and short because I don't want it to turn into me just ranting about the things I didn't like.

The writing was wonderful, as usual with Samantha Young.

I really liked On Dublin Street, and have enjoyed other books by this author too. So I think I was expecting Down London Road to blow me away, but I was sadly disappointed.

I don't like it when people say they didn't like a book, but then doesn't give any reasons why, it annoys me. So here are my

I actually liked this book a lot. Down London Road was just another proof for me that I will read everything Samantha Young writes. It had almost everything for me. A likable heroine, a hot and sexy hero and a good plot. I enjoyed some parts in this book more then others, but overall, it was a great read!!

But first thing first, our heroine, Johanna Walker.

I'm in shock. I can't believe I'm giving two stars to a book written by the same author who wrote On Dublin Street, which was one of my favorites of 2012. I still can't quite rap my head around it.

This book was nothing like On Dublin Street. I don't mean that I expected for stories to be similar or anything, I expected to be left with the same feelings I had after I read ODS: happiness, good kind of frustration, maybe a little of sadness or heartache. After finishing this one I was left with on

This was an adult contemporary romance story featuring Jo from On Dublin Street.

I liked Jo in this and I felt bad for her at the way she was living her life in fear of her parents. It wasn’t fair the way she had to work 2 jobs and look after her younger brother all the time because of her mother’s alcoholism, but trying to hide what she was living with wasn’t doing her any favours either.

The storyline in this was about Jo meeting Cameron and them both feeling attracted to one another even thoug

This book was so much better than On Dublin Street,i liked that one, but this has a great story! i absolutely loved this. The setting to this series in general was perfect, the characters were great . the story line was amazing, and heartbreaking. The dialogue could have been better but still it was good.

This is the second book in the On Dublin Street series and is about bartender, Johanna (Jo) and graphic designer Cameron (Cam). They meet when Cam is hired at the bar where Jo works and the attraction is instant. There is just one problem.....they are both dating other people. UGH!

WARNING: This review kind of sucks, mainly because I find it difficult to write reviews for romance books but enjoy.

Down London Road was a book I went into expecting not to really like. I hadn't enjoyed On Dublin Street very much, from what I can remember. So, with my low expectations, I found I actually really enjoy Down London Road.

This book is able to be read as a standalone, but, of course, mentions characters from the first book but kind of makes you feel as if you have to read the first

I know my review isn't traditional. But this really distracted me while reading the book: the similar names. I also felt like more of the alphabet should have been used because I had to stop and think about who is who. My mind was constantly trying to keep everyone straight especially when Jo and Joss were together.
