On Dublin Street is one of my favorite books. I’ve been meaning to re-read it for the longest time, so when a friend told me how incredible the audio version was, I made time to squeeze it in straight away. I’m so glad I did. This is one of those books that was even better the second time around.

Braden Carmichael is one of the very first book boyfriends I ever claimed as my own. In my original short review, I referred to him as my ‘new literary love’. He is just so damn perfect! I could go on and on about how much I love him. He's smooth, sexy, funny, alpha, and sweet.

Joss is a heroine I completely adore. I know a lot of people have issues with her, but not me. She is perfectly imperfect. She is flawed in the best way. Her entire life changed when she was younger and she is the person she is because of those changes. She does the best she can and the growth she has is inspiring. She is also so funny. All through the book, her snarky and fun attitude just makes me smile and laugh. I love seeing her open up to not only Braden, but Elle as well.

Samantha Young is a fantastic storyteller. I find myself getting lost in the world of her characters. This book is wonderful. One of my favorite contemporary romances. Joss’s journey and progression was great to see. And did I mention how steamy it is? Braden and Joss together.. gah! SO hot.

If you haven’t read this book, I have to insist you pick it up right away. And if you like audio books, I can’t recommend this one enough. It was fantastic. Meet Braden Carmichael, fall in love with him, and thank me later ;)

Samantha Young
“I feel like I'm missing something really important when you're gone. So important I don't feel like myself. I've never felt like someone was mine before. But you're mine, Jocelyn. I've known that from the moment we met. And I'm yours. I don't want to be anyone else's, babe.”
Samantha Young, On Dublin Street
