On Dublin Street (On Dublin Street, #1)

On Dublin Street (On Dublin Street, #1) - Samantha Young Okay. Here it goes. On Dublin Street makes me think of Fifty Shades of Grey. There's the woman. The gazillionaire horny businessman. An arrangement. Tragic pasts and demons. The elements of Fifty are present on this novel except the idea of BDSM. Well, I cannot blame readers, myself included to like these type of books. The idea of a perfect man despite his past loving a simple intelligent woman is swoon-worthy. I also like the fact that there is a bit of psychology involved in here which makes the substance of the novel heavier than others. Braden Carmichael is a liakble character, as well as Jocelyn, who prefers to be called "Joss". They are both struggling with their past misfortunes and matures as the story went on. The conversations are witty and funny and easy to read. The steamy scenes are not cringe-worthy as well. Samantha Young did very well on her debut Adult novel. The pace is fair and the ending is good. 4.3 out of 5 stars.
