I have to say, there is something about Jacyln Quinn's writing, stories and characters that just pull me in completely. I loved Gabe from the first book. His wit and style made me very curious about this man and his "relationship" tactics.
Well, let's just say, he is nothing like he seems. Honest, sweet and such a devoted friend he is indeed. But there was much more to this man than met the eye and I loved him all the more.
Enter Nate. My heavens, this was also a character who is not at all what he seemed in the first book. His pushback and protective nature was wonderfully developed. And his story is one that I honestly did not see coming. But work it did...and it certainly worked on our sweet Gabe.
As with book one, the dialogue for me feels so natural and the situations never feel contrived. Once again I was drawn into this setting, this cast of characters, their friendships and love for another. The friendship that has been formed between Gabe and Jonah is the perfect example. These two are wonderful together.
I eagerly await Jonah's story...he needs him something amazing and the shy ginger may be absolutely perfect. Can't wait!
An ARC was received from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I am still having the lingering after-effects of a book hangover with this book. I loved the hero and heroine, whose romance was filled with witty banter and a reserved but sizzling undertone chemistry that carries throughout the book. Jo Goodman is a fabulous author who has a great grasp and use of dialogue and likeable characters. But I think she threw the ball out of the ballpark with this one.
Although the romance was slow burn, and other than the beginning and ending, which was action packed, I highly enjoyed this book!
I also did a joint review with Lou - here at The Book Pushers.
I haven't read any of Samantha Young's YA fiction so I was a bit hesitant to read this one despite all the great reviews because it's her first one outside the YA genre. I'm so glad I finally gave in!!!
Loved this book!!! On Dublin Street is on my top five list for 2012! The witty banter between not just the hero and heroine but all the secondary characters are top-notch! The characters are likable and convincing while the story is hot, sexy and emotional with serious depth to boot! I could go on and on, so I'll just say READ IT!
