  • Rachel (BAVR)
    Some spoilers ahead!Oh, good grief. Before I even get started, let's just establish a couple of facts about this review:1) I know my opinion is not the popular one (at the moment).2) I do not feel guilty about Fact #1. 3) Therefore, I am going to be brutally honest. If I could go back in time one week and erase the crazed idea I got to read On Dublin Street, I would. Even though I'm an avid romance reader, I have incredibly shitty luck with conte...

    Gentlemen are gentlemen in bed. They make sure youre having a good time.Ill make sure youre having a good time, and that youre okay with everything were doing. I just wont be well-mannered about it. My brain is in shock by the pure awesomeness of this book and characters. I really wish I knew all the English words for something amazing, I'd put them here, really. It had me hooked from the first page, in love with Braden some 20 pages after that,...

    This book has ruined me for others...I haven't been able to read anything since. Until then...Braden... Well, what can I say that hasn't already been said? There's over 1,500!! reviews for this book, the author has just signed a 7-figure, 2 paperback book deal with a major publisher, sold 150,000 downloads of this self-published book in one month, and I'll bet movie rights might be next. So I doubt my little review will make much difference in it...

    5 stars! On Dublin Street is one of my favorite books. Ive 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. Im 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 lite...

    I have one question .WHY??WHY??WHY??I was so excited to start this book because of all these amazing reviews and its high rating.Unfortunatelly it turned out to be a nightmare for me.The prologue was amazing and quite promising.The fact that she (view spoiler)[lost her family in a car accident (hide spoiler)] added a dramatic tone in the story which I really liked.The first chapter described the first time they met each other.Guess what???Everyth...

    41/2 to 5 stars with a caveatOh my gosh, what an emotional, angsty, and enthralling read! I won't go into plot detail considering many reviews have already done a good job explaining what this book is about, but I will share my overall impressions. On Dublin Street owned me from the first page to the last. It had my emotions all over the placefrom tremendous frustration to pure elation. Most of my jumbled emotions were due to the heroine, Jocelyn...

    My thought process in stages as I was reading this book : Starts out strong...okay, this is interesting...nice, he's pretty smokin' in that alpha male kind of way...hell yeah, this is some hot sex...wow, I like how this story has different layers to it...hold up, he did not just - SIGH...and I think I'm going to start skimming now...okay, the end was sweet.3.5 stars I'm sure people will be surprised that I even went as high as I did because there...

    3 Emotionally Unavailable Stars Lots of Spoilers I was really looking forward to reading On Dublin Street. There were so many amazing reviews on this book. 5 stars here, there, and everywhere. so I just knew I was going to love this book. Then I read it and I wanted to choke the life out of the heroine Joss. Jocelyn Butler aka Joss just about ruined this book for me with her emotional constipation. Don't get me wrong she had a lot of bad things ...
  • Ceilidh
    So this was awful.To say that I didnt like Fifty Shades of Grey is the understatement of the year. It was one of the worst books Ive ever read a sexist, woman shaming badly written fan-fiction that romanticised an abusive jerk, made Twilight look like Dostoyevsky and left us all a little relieved that our own pornographic fan-fiction wasnt so terrible in comparison. For some reason I have yet to figure out, the series has become wildly popular, ...

    I read a lot of contemporary romances, most of them really very good, but every now and then a book comes along that just WOWS you and you know that what youre reading is really very special. This is THAT book. I loved every second, stayed up way too late to finish it and then couldnt sleep because it consumed me with its emotional intensity and I couldnt get it out of my head.Braden is an incredible hero I loved him so much. There are book hero...

    Jesus C!Braden Carmichael has got to be one of the hottest book boys I've read since Kellan Kyle AND Christian Grey. Yes. You read that correctly. Braden Carmichael had my "knickers" in a twist from the moment his sexy Scottish accent entered my life... "Most women would be taking advantage of my imprisonment in the taxi with them-chew my ear off, shove their phone number in my face...as well as other things.""Wow, you really think a lot of yours...

    Seriously: my cheeks hurt from smiling so much!And there are dishes in my kitchen that are about, I kid you not, ten feet high because I just havent been able to get to them in the last day. The same goes for my laundry. And theres a distinct *butt* print in my favorite chair, because that damn thing really is a little too comfy for its own good.And you wanna know what caused this?THIS DAMN BOOK!Thats what.Gah, guys its SO FUGGIN good!!

    Almost 4 stars "I know you love me, Jocelyn, because there's no fucking way I can be this much in love with you, and not have you feel the same way. It's not possible." I feel pretty torn about how to rate this book. The guy was FUCKHOT!! I loved him. He reminded me a lot of Gideon Cross. But that being said, to me, the heroine's actions and denial of their feelings for each other brought the story down for me. I still did like the story, but ...

    Update 8/6/15: Full review now posted. Jocelyn "Joss" Butler is an orphan girl who moves in Scotland four years after the terrible accident that took her family away from her. While trying to restart her life, Joss is ignoring her past on purpose and doesn't face her demons, something that makes her struggle in her present life, trying not to get attached to people around her in fear of also losing them. Her whole world is about to change when sh...
  • chan ☆
    Pros- sex scenes were hot- the setting (Scotland) was pretty unique for a contemporary romance and really worked- fairly accurate depiction of emotional trauma! big pet peeve of my mine is when a book will kill off a main character's family/friends/etc but the main character is totally fine. I like that Joss' problems are talked about AND that she is trying to get help for them... that being said....Cons- Braden was kind of controlling/manipulati...
  • Tough Critic Book Reviews
    I went into this book with absolutely no expectations, not a single one, I just wanted to read a book, any book. Well knock me flat on my ass because I didn't expect that. I didn't expect awesome on a stick (a really hot stick named Braden). Expectations be damned!If we're talking cock full of awesome, then why not 5-stars? Well...the first 30ish percent I just wasn't sure. Do I like this book? Where's it going? Is more coming? Is it getting bett...

    5 big stars! ON DUBLIN STREET is easily one of the best books I read all year!!! I was blown away by this story.What started off as just another typical girl-meets-boy type romance story, ended up being so much more. The emotions I went through reading this was a roller-coaster ride. I cried, laughed, screamed, swooned, worried, and even got pissed off. I wanted to shake Joss at times, and tell her to let go and just trust Braden. But it was her ...

    An American romance in Scotland!My title is a bit of a teaser, it is only the heroine Jocelyn that is American and actually her mother was from Scotland which was why she decided to move there, but I really liked a few scenes in this book hat played up her American heritage because in the romance genre we see a lot of books written by British authors and they have the British words for certain things and I kind of liked it that this heroine calle...

    5 Stars! RAWRRRRRR! I am in LOVE with Braden Carmichael, my bags are packed and I'm moving to Dublin Street!Aside from some repetitiveness with Jocelyn's dialogue, it was almost the perfect book! There was tragedy, drama, lust, passion, love, humor, fun, fantastic dialogue and it was SSSSSSSSSIZZLING!I'm not going to get into the story too much, but this book had two of the best and most realistic scenes I've ever read. One had me laughing so har...

    2.5 STARSThis book made me create new shelves, named 'are you fucking kidding me?' and 'disappointments'.After finishing On Dublin Street, i have to ask you guys a question. What the heck is all the hype about? To all the fans of this book, i'm glad you enjoyed it. Meet Jocelyn... Who is she?A 20 something year old woman who is afraid of people. Of letting them in and getting attached to them. She likes being alone because no one asks her person...

    5 shiny stars!! I finished this book a couple of days ago, and it has been with me in the back of my mind ever since. I wanted to take the time to ponder what this story meant to me, because I gotta tell you...I was on an emotional roller-coaster while reading it! The characters were..well...AMAZING! The author introduces us to Jocelyn at the young age of 14. Everything is 'perfect' in her life. She has loving parents and a beautiful little sist...

    5 DELICIOUS BRADEN STARS "I can't get the thought of you beneath me, and that hair spread out across my pillow while I move inside you, out of my head." Oh. God. "But I think mostly it's your eyes. I want something from them no one else gets from them." "And what's that?" I asked, my voice low, almost hoarse. His words had affected me as deeply as any aphrodisiac."Soft." His own voice had deepened with the highly sexual atmosphere. "Soft the way...

    4.5 'Bloody Hell' Stars Welcome to Dublin Street First things first... I love Brandon. Can I just say he is such a bae. He's such a dirty talker, hot, and sexy,but at the same time he was sweet. He cared. He was there, he wanted to understand Joss or Jocelyn (he prefers it) and he was just too sweet. He got me feeling like this most of the time..I cant get the thought of you beneath me, and that hair spread out across my pillow while I move insi...

    Absolutely, freaking LOVED IT!!!I read this in a day, unable to put it down. And I dont think any review I write can fully represent how much I loved it, but Im giving it a try. There was just so much about this book that I loved its funny, romantic, swoony and sexy, its got drama, and there is a sensational cast of characters. But most of my love can be summed up in two words Braden Carmichael. HOT DAMN!!! The man is perfect, absolutely perfec...

    There are so many things Amazing about this book making it a winner for me. A few of my thoughts... It has a conclusive, happy ending!! Yay!! There are no cliffhangers that left me gasping and somewhat annoyed waiting around to find out more. Im getting somewhat tired of the installment reads and find myself searching for those with closure. It is a beautiful, passionate, emotional and totally sexy Contemporary with the heroine suffering severe t...
