Nora O’Brien chased a dream from Indiana to Scotland, so sure it was the right thing to do. Three years later she was left in her adopted country with nothing to her name but guilt and regret.

Until Aidan Lennox entered her life.

Older, worldlier, a music producer and composer, the sexy Scot should never have made sense for Nora. But somehow, in each other, they found the li

Nora is 18 when she leaves her little hometown in the United States to come to Scotland with 21 year old Jim.
But what she thought was her first real love, ended up with them being just friends. She just didn't love him the

"At least you're jealous of the living, Nora." He said. "I'm fucking jealous of a dead man."

2017 is the year for Samantha Young! This woman is on fire with the level of books that she has been putting out. She blew me away at her first attempt at YA with The Impossible Vastness of Us, and I'm falling hard for the residents of Hartwell with the Hart's Boardwalk series. It should be no surprise that she stunned me once again with Play On, but I am, because this is not my typical read.

I have read many Samantha Young books over the years. I would consider her one of my favorite authors. I was so excited to hear that we were going to get some more books based in Scotland. I have been lucky and spent a couple weekends in Edinburgh. It was love at first sight. There is just something magical there and I think it translates to books that are set there. I think Play On might be one of Samantha's best books. I got the feeling early on that Play On was going to be a great read.

Have you ever been touched so deeply by a character that their pain is your pain? Their joy is your joy? That you want to reach through the pages of the book and grab them by the shoulders so you can give them a little shake when they're being stupid or a hug when they're sad? If you've never experienced this before, you will when you read Nora O'Brien's story. It will grab a hold of you and not let go-not even for a second.

Nora is an old soul who's trapped. She trapped in a small town, in a dea

Play On is a very touching story of a young girl who falls in love with a man and follows her dream of a better life only to find out that the reality is no better than what she left behind. Nora is 18 when she leaves the USA to be with Jim but after a few years all is not well. She then lives her life full of guilt and remorse because of what she has done and refuses to ever take the chances she has laid out before her that would make all of her dreams come true.
Nora goes through so much emotio

I was provided an ARC for an honest opinion.
This was such an emotional and beautiful story. The main character's journey is an amazing one. It is an awe-inspiring tale. This author has the ability to tell stories in such a way that it sucks you in completely. I have yet to come across a book of hers that I have not loved. I definitely recommend this book and this author.

This book was magnificent. I've always been a huge Samantha Young fan but her recent releases have blown me away, and Play On continued that streak. Play On is complex and brilliant, full of heartache and sweetness.

When I first read the blurb for this book I was so excited. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Let me tell you this book is so good! Samantha Young has easily become one of my go to authors.

Nora lives in Indiana and at age 18 hasn’t really had a chance to experience life as young adult. She is very responsible and helping take care of a family member. She was content with her life and never expected anything different. That all changed the day she met two Scottish men. Jim is a brea

This book made me remember all the reasons why i loved so much "on Dublin Street".
The same components are here. And there's more.
_ a broken but brave girl who wants to live her life and make her dreams come true.
_ a REAL MAN , seriously hot and kind and who knows what he wants.
_ Scotland... I need to visit Scotland !
_ Regrets, fears, guilt, loss, grief... so A LOT OF TEARS !
_ Laughter, passion, love, friendship, generosity, purity... HEARTWARMING AND ADDICTIVE.

PLUS :
_ all the work behind Nora
