On Dublin Street by Samantha Young
Fangalert: Highly addictive. Don't read this book if you don't have time to do it in one sitting - you may not get anything done until it ends.
Jocelyn Butler is half american. She has lost all her family when she was a kid and her best friend. This has marked her for life. She doesn't let anyone in and since a bad experience a few years back she has decided to stay clear of men.
She has moved to Scotland trying to erase the memories of her earlier past. Once she finishes college, her roommate moves away and she moves to Dublin Street. The first time she meets Braden Carmichael, highly successful business man, they share a taxi. She soon discovers he is her new roommate's brother and owner of her new home. They have an electrifying attraction and chemistry. He wants everything from Joss and wants her to realize she can do a relationship taking baby steps.
Love that Braden was not 100% Alpha, he was vulnerable too. Usually this doesn't work for me in books, but in this book it couldn't be any other way.
Very happily surprised about this book. This has been one of the best recommendations of the year. Thanks Janet!!
Now, I just need the movie. A Scottish actor, hmmmmm.....
