When I first picked up Echoes of Scotland Street, I was equal parts anxious, excited and a little nervous to read. Anxious and excited because it’s Coles book and I’ve been dying for more of him... nervous because as much as I loved Hannah in previous books, her book didn’t work for me and I was terrified this would happen again. I can happily say this one worked for me! It was fantastic and Cole Walker exceeded all my expectations.

4 Grown Up Stars!

When she was a teenager, Shannon met a sweet boy that reminded her of a super-hero. It was 5 (amazing) minutes and then life went on and they never saw each other again.
Until 9 years later….


Now, after a bad past and some (very) wrong choices, Shannon is starting again. She is looking for a new life and she swore bad-boys out of her life, because they’ve stumped her enough. What she didn’t expect is to find Cole 9 years later. But now he’s no longer a boy. He is a sexy tatto

Let me tell you a story about a boy.. his name is Cole Walker and soon he is going to become somebody's hero...

Samantha Young does it again in an impressive way. Echoes of Scotland Street is my favorite book from the series, in which you can read the story of Cole and Shannon. Cole is Jo's brother from the second book, all grown up and ready to steal out hearts permanently. Shannon is newly introduced, but as soon as you'll meet her you will realize how good she is for Cole.

Sharon ∞❥ is an emotional book junkie ❥∞
Cole meets Shannon when they are fifteen years old and there is an immediate connection. Unfortunately, she has a boyfriend and doesn't even live in the same town. Fast forward nine years and Shannon moves to Edinburgh and gets a job as a receptionist at a tattoo parlor. You'll never guess who her boss is.

I feel like I've been waiting for Cole's book forever, so I was thrilled that it was finally out. I was a bit disappointed that the story wasn't from his POV and we didn't even get a chapter..
DNF so sad, I'm so disappointed :'(

If this is going to be Cole's book then...

can't wait for the buzzzzzz sound of the tattoo gun from Cole's hand or whatever he's going to use of those hands *ehem cough cough*

I LOVED IT!!!! Samantha Young is the one author where I don't care about the nitty gritty details, I love everything this woman writes and will most likely always give her books 5 stars.

Echoes of Scotland Street is about Shannon, a girl who has been dating all of the wrong men and is tired of choosing the bad boys. After an extremely bad breakup that led to even more horrible things, Shannon finds herself moving from Glasgow to Edin

Cole and Shannon meet at the age of fifteen, and in those few minutes there is an immediate connection.

Despite both of them being able to feel this connection, neither one of them knows what to do about it. So they both go on with their lives. Shannon gets in the car with her boyfriend, Cole leaves his friends house, and as far as they are both concerned they will never see each other again. Fast forward nine years and fate has other plans for them.

There was one thing I liked about this book and that was Cole. He is the only reason I rounded up to three stars. Cole is the perfect combination of sweetheart and alpha caveman. I loved every thing about him. If this book was in his perspective, I might have liked it.

That brings me to what I didn't like. Shannon. UUUgggh. It was like being in the head of an immature, judgmental teenager. I had heard that she could be annoying, so I was prepared for that. What I wasn't prepared for, was h

Welp! This is going to be one of those "I like it but..." reviews I don't enjoy writing. Nevertheless, it must be done.

I liked this book. I really did. I read it straight through. It was short and unputdownable. But... it wasn't as heart-wrenching or as engaging as the previous books in the series. I've read all books in this series except Down London Road, and frankly, I just couldn't connect with this one.

Shannon was a cool character but I couldn't connect with her

This was an adult contemporary romance featuring Cole and Shannon.

I liked Cole and Shannon in this, but I found it a little odd that the book wasn’t from Cole’s point of view as he was the one that we knew.

The storyline in this was about Shannon getting a job at INKarnate and meeting Cole again (they first met when they were 15). Shannon was getting over a bad break-up, and didn’t trust Cole at first, and I got a little annoyed by the way she treated him. This was an okay story, but I didn’t lik

“You’re worth every bad thing that’s ever happened to me, because going through them led me to you.”

It’s rare to find a series that book after book never disappoints, never fails to capture my attention and make me fall head over heels in love with the characters, but On Dublin Street is not only one of these extraordinary instances, it is also a series that never stopped getting better and better.

I’ve been a huge fan of Samantha Young’s On Dublin Street series and once again she amazes me with Echoes of Scotland Street, the fifth installment in this series. She captivates with multi-layered characters, sexual tension galore, and a satisfaction guaranteed romance!

Shannon has moved to Edinburgh to get away from a very bad breakup. One of a long list of shady boyfriends, but this last one takes the cake, abusive and then some! This boyfriend not only shatters her self-confidence,

I knew I had to read cutey Cole's book regardless reviews. Whilst it was an improvement from Hannah's book I wasn't blown away. Cole was a sweetheart!! Shannon was harder to like but she wasn't as bad as I thought she'd be.

I love this series! Samantha Young has sucked me in over and over again with her emotion-filled love stories, and her absolutely sensational and swoon-worthy leading men. This woman has written some of my all-time favourite book boyfriends, and she’s done a wonderful job with Cole.

This was a good story. Another win for the Dublin Street series. But is it wrong to say that I wanted more for Cole?

Chan, that’s like saying Shannon isn’t good enough for him. I know, I know, but that’s how I feel. Shannon is great and has a heart-wrenching past. She totally deserves a hero, but can’t it be somebody else? Can’t she have fallen for some other character?

Anyway, I enjoyed the angst. There was also a nice twist on the female and male norms towards the end. Good read.

I like flawed heroines. You will almost never read me calling a heroine whiney, because I like heroines with obsessions. I like when they obsess over the death of a loved one or when they don’t easily fall in to the arms of the hero. That being said, I hated Shannon. Despised her on almost every page of the book and it made the story difficult for me.

Shannon has some traumatic things in her past that does garner sympathy, but it’s not

Well, I guess the best way to describe my thoughts about this book would be with some My Little Pony gifs eh? Pinkie Pie says it all my friends. So this is Cole’s story, Jo’s little bro. Cole runs into Shannon when they were around 15 and sparks fly, the connection is instantly there. Shannon was such a sweet little doe-eyed teenager back then.

Ahh but shiz changes right? After several failed relationships, her last one being quite the doozie, our Shannon has changed

5 stars of course!!

So I finished the final book of The Dublin Series. I don’t know what to feel exactly. I’m happy but at the same time, it feels like this wasn’t enough and I want more.

Cole’s story is definitely a 5 star for me. I already rate it when I met him in Fall From India Place. I’m kinda bias, but I don’t care.

Like always I love all of the characters. It’s the development of the story that I’ve got some issues about. I don’t know , but the constant trust issue between Cole and Shannon

Another wonderful addition that Samantha Young brings to the Dublin Street series. We see so much growth in this group of family and friends that come together during the good and the hard times.

Echoes At Scotland Street is a story that will lift your spirits but also push your emotional limits at times. Our delicious key players for this story are:

Amazing, as usual. Cole Walker, you grew up very nicely, congratulations. Must be all the influence of all the great men and women in your life. Very nice. For some reason I had Rodrigo Calazans in my head as Cole when I read. I had no idea where that came from.

I'm going to avoid writing a full review for this book as well, mainly because I'm lazy. It was fluffy. It was sweet. It was adorable and full of angst. I loved the fact we got to see Cole grown up, he's been one of favourite characters since he was introduced. The book was an easy read with a similar story line to the rest of the books in the series, which ultimately made it enjoyable for me. ...more

I loved Echoes of Scotland Street Cole and Shannon's story, they have their problems to work through before they have their HEA.

Shannon has come to Edinborough for a fresh start escaping her past and all her bad desicions. Shannon has her issues with trusting men especially if they have tattoos and the only place she has an interview is a tattoo studio INKarnate enter Cole and the story begins.

Cole's story!! We had to wait soo long to finally get his book!!

And it was just as perfect as I expected it to be. I'm not a fan of tattoos and I still loved Cole and his story soo much!
It was realllly sexy and cute and moving and sad and Cole is sooo adorable!!! Perfect book - especially after I was a tiny little bit disappointed with Hannah's India Place :/

This is Cole's story and the fifth installment of Samantha Young's On Dublin Street series. I have loved Cole since he was introduced in the second book and I was REALLY looking forward to his story.

But unfortunately, I'm just not connecting with these characters. Cole seems different somehow, too nice maybe? Or maybe a little too desperate for a serious relationship? I get the sense that he would fall just as completely for another woman, if Shannon hadn't come along.
