But... what if she never met Braden and Ellie Carmichael on that fateful day when she was only twenty-two years old?

La historia de Joss y Braden me gusto bastante cuando la lei hace algunos años pero no alcanzo la adoracion que sienten muchas personas aqui en Goodreads por ella, quizas por eso me pense mucho si leer esta pequeña novela pero lo cierto es que me sorprendio gratamente lo que encontre entre sus paginas.

Este tipo de historia es una de las que mas disfruto leyendo, pese a no tener demasiadas paginas considero que tiene un desarrollo muy bueno y verosimil, incluso mejor que el de otros libros con el

I love Sam Young and this novella gave me the opportunity to remember Joss and Braden. This alternative version of their love story brought a huge smile upon my face and made me super aware of why they are so amazing together. Even if the circumstances were different, the attraction and chemistry were as intense as we know them. Although short, it was a pleasant read, with a lot of hot scenes that never disappoint.

OMG!!!
Primer libro que leo en mi vida en inglés sin que nadie "me obligue" a hacerlo. Esto si que es efecto #Braden. XD, que este chico me incite a, por fin, leer un libro en inglés y que ésto no haya sido una tortura, se merece premiazo: 4 estrellas!!
Estoy segura que no me he enterado de la mitad. Los sentimientos que siempre me provocan esta pareja, ésta vez han sido menos. Que leer no consiste sólo en entender el significado de las palabras, leer es sumergirte en lo que piensan los personajes

The novella starts off with updating us on things with Joss and Braden and then immediately goes into Joss being asked to write a story with a different outcome on a pivotal event.

Naturally, she decides to write what would happen if her and Braden didn't meet when she was twenty-two and instead met when she was thirty.

And let me just tell you...HOLY COW!! Samantha Young can write sexual tension like nobody's business. I mean I LOVE Braden and Joss and I love just about everything about ho

To be able to read a favorite book for the first time again is something we bookworms wished we all could do. Well, Samantha Young found a way for her readers to do just that.



Stars Over Castle Hill is an alternative reality of Joss and Braden's story. It answered the question of what would have happened if Joss never met Braden and Ellie that fateful day. Don't fret though! Samantha didn't ruin their HEA or anything. In this novella, Joss was asked to write a story about a pivotal event in her

ne zaman okudum bilmiyorum ama okumuşum asdfadf

hatırladığım kadarıyla, 'artık yether' desem de kitap sonunda 'daha fazla braden yaz' dediğim ancak kitabın içindeki kitabın kurgusunu pek sevemediğimi ve oradaki braden'ı bi tık eksik hissettiğimi söyleyebilirim.

I read and loved this last year.

It disappeared from my read shelf along with my origianal review which I had done mostly with gifs :(

I would recommend this to EVERYONE who love Braden and Joss.

Joss’un Braden ve kendisiyle ilgili kurguladığı bir kitabın taslağını okuyoruz. Aslında güzeldi ama Braden Braden değil gibiydi. Çok memnun kaldığımı söyleyemem.

Fuckity shit damn do I love Joss and Braden! I will N-E-V-E-R get enough of them. Never ever. Samantha Young please don't stop sharing them with us. I love watching them grow as themselves and as a couple. SY writes them as if they are your friend and you know them well. I love that they still can banter and be snarky and hot! And this alternate reality was just so clever and awesome!

They are one of my top book couples and this was an awesome treat!

I adore this series and love getting these little novellas. This one takes us back to the beginning with Joss and Braden - the couple that started it all.

This was really cute. We got to see them with their three kids. Joss is still writing and she's been asked to write a novella for an anthology and the story needs to be personal. So she chose to write a what if moment - what if she didn't meet Braden the way it happened in the first story. This novella was pretty much just another way to have

This is a "what if" novella. What if Joss and Braden met eight years later. Life moved on as normal for Ellie and the other characters. Joss even still became a writer. But without Braden in her life she never addressed the loss of her family. And what of Braden? Was he still successful? Was his love life a mess? Other surprises?

I thought this book was a nice, short reread of On Dublin Street with a twist. It brought back memories. I liked it.

Great novella reminding me of the much loved character's from the inital book which expanded into a great Edinburgh based romance series.

If you haven't read this series yet I'd highly recommend. However, as character's overlap in the books I advise reading in order to get the most enjoyment of the series.

This was the last, and best of the On Dublin Street novellas featuring Braden and Joss at different points in their lives. This one was great and highly imaginative, my favourite up to here.

Joss is commissioned to write about an alternative reality in her life, if some random moments in it had not happened. Speculating about the turns on the way, and potential outcomes in life, in a kind of The Road Not Taken (Robert Frost) virtual reality if she had taken different forks on the path. She gets

Braden benim favori karakterlerimden. Hatta şurada bahsetmiştim. Ama ne kadar sevsem de yazarın artık bu karakterlere güle güle demesi gerektiğini hissediyorum. Sürekli bir geri dönüş, kaç novella okudum bu seride bilmiyorum. Bu sefer de Joss, Ellie'nin ev arkadaşı ilanına cevap vermese ne olurdu onu görüyoruz. Kitabın yazarı aslında Joss, ilk okuyan Braden oluyor. Ve kaderin garip cilvesiyle 8 sene geçmiş olsa da yine de birbirlerini bulmayı başarıyorlar. Karakterlere geri dönmek güzel ama benc ...more

Of all the romance novels I have read, and it's a lot, On Dublin Street is one of my all time favorites. I adore the whole series, but ODS in particular holds a special place in my heart. Joss and Braden are my gold standard of what the main characters in a romance should be. She is somewhat tortured over her loss, he is cocky but not arrogant. The depth is amazing with these two. And to behold this new novella dedicated to them....I was giddy. It did not disappoint. I laughed, I cried, I felt t ...more

Es fällt mir echt nicht leicht dieses Buch zu bewerten. Ich liebe Joss und - besonders - Braden und habe Dublin Street schon einige Male gelesen.

Deswegen habe ich mich natürlich sehr über diese Novella gefreut, insbesondere da mir die anderen Novellas der Autorin sehr gut gefallen haben.

Am besten gefallen hat mir wohl das erste und das letzte Kapitel, denn das waren Joss und Braden wie ich sie kenne :)
Die Alternativgeschichte der beiden fand ich hingegen nicht so toll. Klar sie sind

The more I read of Braden and Joss the more I love them. This time their story is told in a WHAT IF but honestly I don’t think I’d prefer this one but how the original is written. I loved the laughs their family and ofc the hot and steamy $$xy scenes but it’s still an enjoyable novella.

Very sweet and heart warming alternate narration of the Dublin Street first book. There's this heroine-as-a-writer device to present the novella as a what-if literary exercise by Jocelyn herself.
Nice excuse to revisit a dear series.

Such a cool way to give us a novella about my favorite couple, but I love their real story much more. The only change I realized is, that in their real story I connected with Braden and here I liked Joss more :)

Normally I really enjoy these little novellas, that complement a story I liked. And I loved the story of Joss and Braden, to this day it is one of my favorites books and I regulary re-read it. The also enjoyed the novella Castle Hill although lots of drama.

This one didn't feel like Joss and Braden for me. And I think this was my biggest problem. The story itself was absolutely decent, if I read it without knowing the characters it would have been a quick nice read.
But I couldn't really connect

My first husband, Braden Carmichael, is still hot after all these years. I love this alternate reality story to Joss x Braden's love story, although like the couple, I still prefer their original love story. Braden having a fit after finishing the story because he reckoned he'd choose Joss first in all the universes is so cute I love him so much-

Since I read 'On Dublin Street' (2013) Braden Carmichael stole my heart. Joss & Braden and the whole gang stayed permanently inside my heart and they don't want to go. I just don't want them to go anyway. *grins*

Unless a story is written about their demise, I could read about Joss, Braden & their lovely children until I take my last breath. After all these years, this couple is still head over heels in love with one another and the smutty sexual banter never fails to make an appearance. Their children mirror their personalities in so many ways which is very entertaining as well as touching. Joss is asked to write a short story about a life changing event and what could have happened if she chose to ...more

This book was such a breath of fresh air. I loved Braden and Joss’s story and was a bit skeptical about this short novella. I wasn’t sure I wanted to read it cause I was afraid it’ll somehow ruin the impression of the original story, but to my surprise it turned out to be a really good story.

I do believe we have some things in life we cannot escape from and that are destined to be, no matter what. So this was the main idea here. What if they never met? Yes, they were b

אחד הספרים הראשונים שקראתי מאז המהפך של הספרות הרומנטית שליוותה אותי בצעירותי לספרות האירוטית של היום היה הספר "אהבה ברחוב דבלין" , זהו גם הספר היחידי בחיים הבוגרים שקראתי פעמיים. בהחלט אחד האהובים עליי.
לספרים האחרים של סמנתה פחות התחברתי, הם מאוד מתפזרים למספר רב של דמויות ותת סיפורים שסוטים מהזוג הראשי.
הספר הזה הוא מעין סגירת מעגל.
אהבתי את הספר הזה מאוד.
שקלתי אם לדרג 4 או 5 כי למרות שאני אוהבת את הזוג ואהבתי את העלילה נהייתי בררנית לאחר ההפסקה הארוכה שלי מהספרים.
