On Dublin Street (On Dublin Street, #1)

On Dublin Street (On Dublin Street, #1) - Samantha Young I love Samantha Young's books and was excited to hear she was releasing an adult contemporary book. I was even more excited to find out it's set in Edinburgh.I pretty much stayed up all night reading this book and I loved it. It reminded me a wee bit of 50 Shades Of Grey only much, much better and without the repetitive sex and characters that incite rage.Joss is an American living in Edinburgh, she has issues from her past and has successfully avoided dealing with them...until she moves in with Ellie...and meets Ellie's brother, Braden.The main character Joss is exactly what I love in female characters: snarky, strong and ultimately loveable. She has issues, she's effed up but she's awesome. Braden is exactly what I love in male characters: protective, tenacious and moderately adorable. I loved the snarky dialogue, the made up words, the side characters (how cute is Ellie?) and the sub plots, the setting and just everything.Love love love. Such a departure from Samantha's usual writing but equally as enjoyable.
