One of my favorite contemporary series, and again – I was not disappointed.
Shannon MacLeod has always gone for the wrong type of man. After she drifted from one toxic relationship to the next, her last boyfriend gave her a wakeup call in the worst possible way. With her world shattered, she’s sworn off men—especially those of the bad-boy variety.
Cole Walker is exactly the sort that Shannon wants to avoid—gorgeous, tattooed, charming, and cocky. But his rough exterior hides a good man who’s ready to find “the one.” He’s determined to pull Shannon from her self-imposed solitude and win her heart.
As Shannon opens up in the face of Cole’s steady devotion, the passion between them ignites to blazing levels. But when Shannon’s past comes back to haunt her, her fears may destroy the trust Cole has built between them—and tear them apart for good…
Writing this review I had just finished reading this book and I’m absolutely charmed. There wasn’t much that surprised me, and the formula is rather common. However, Samantha Young created with On Dublin Street what many other authors didn’t quite manage to – A family in her pages.
Joss and Braden gathered around them a charming group of individuals and one of them is Cole Walker, brother to Jo (Cam’s wife). We got to know Cole as a teenager, abused and taken care of by his older sister. I was always curious about what his story will be like, if there was going to be a story at all.
Cole has met the love of his life at age 15. And then again 9 years later, when she walked into his work looking to be hired. Shannon, all fiery, gorgeous and petite, has a traumatic and strewn with mistakes past. And she’s not looking for another boyfriend. Cole, however, has a different idea.
Not going into the plot’s details, I found this installment a great page turner in the form of a captivating romance and much emotion. Both Cole and Shannon went through a heartfelt journey with a beautiful result.
I can’t get enough of Samantha Young’s books and am looking forward to her next work.
