On Dublin Street By Samantha Young

On Dublin Street Review

I have typed a review up twice for this on Goodreads but when i try to post it, it won't let me. 
Anyway, i defiantly wanted to give a review for this book, so i am posting it here. 

After reading 'On Dublin Street' I am emotionally exhausted - but in a good way.

This book made me laugh, cry, shout and at one point, put it down and stomp off in a huff at a certain line from Braden. Which certainly seemed to be the highlight of my mum's day, judging by the length of time she spent laughing at my "toddler tantrum" as she called it. Yet i still crawled back to read more.

But seriously this story was AMAZING! I don't even think that word is good enough to describe just how awesome this book is. 

I have read Samantha Young's books before, and to be honest i always compare them to her 'Tale of Lunamorte' trilogy as i just thought those books were immense. However, 'On Dublin Street' has knocked those off the top of my list. 

The characters were very well written, and Samantha always makes you interested in the supporting characters as well. I was rooting for Ellie and Adam too, and usually the supporting character's just don't interest me as much. At times i just wished someone would grab Joss and shake some sense into her, which Braden did on occasion. :-) Chick deserved it. 

At times i re-read chapters just because of how great they were. This is the first book in a while that i have actually burst out laughing at some of the things the characters come out with. 

But this is a MUST read. LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!!

I wish i could give it more than five stars because i honestly believe it deserves more.

Well done Samantha :-) 


Taking Chances by Loni Flowers

Taking Chances By Loni Flowers Review

Clair is running from her life. Moving from town to town, then one night she is attacked but saved from a handsome stranger Alex. 
Alex wants to help her, but she has been hurt to many times to just so easily trust someone. Can she overcome her issues and start leading her life again?

Where to start with this book?
There are so many things i could say about it, i could sit here and right positive things all night.

One of the things i have to say i loved the most was the fact that both Clair and Alex had pasts, that neither of them really wanted to admit to at first. So they were both broken characters with issues, that ended up being resolved through each other.

You understood Clair's trust issues and why she felt better off on her own. Whereas some other books i have read like this it has been dragged out too long and you just want to scream at them to get a grip. 

The chemistry Alex and Clair was excellently written and even had me blushing on more than one occasion. Any emotions the characters were going through, you were going through also, whether it be laughing, crying,  anger.  

There were really good twists that knocked you on your butt. The supporting characters were very interesting. I literally couldn't put this down until i found out how it ended. 

I would defiantly continue to read this if the story was continued. 


Taking Chances by Molly McAdams Review

Taking Chances by Molly McAdams Review

Chase is your mouth watering, tattooed bad boy. He is dangerously sexy and boy doesn't he know it. Scoring with more than one girl a night, he doesn't have plans to settle down.
Brandon is no good boy though, he is just as bad as Chase with a temper that would make even the bravest run. But he isn't afraid of commitment. 
Harper has lived under her fathers protective control for far too long. Finally leaving the military barracks she has lived all her life in, she sets off to discover who she is and what life is really like.

This is not one your normal 'who will she choose' stories. This is one you will never come across again! Guaranteed. 

I can't say to much about this book without giving away major plot lines of the story, but this book will take you on a roller coaster ride that you never want to come off.
Brandon and Chase are both likable and both HOT! and you find yourself rooting for both of them. Although, i have to admit overall i was team Chase the whole way. What can i say? I dig the tortured soul types. 
Most stories i have read where it is two boys competing for the girl i always tend to be one sided from the beginning and hoping the he will kick the other blokes butt. However, like i said in Taking Chances you find yourself feeling sorry for Chase and hoping he and Harper can get their happily ever after, but then also you care for Brandon, yeah he might have a temper that would send most men running for the hills, but he genuinely cares for Harper and wants the whole package. 

Just as you are starting to love both Brandon and Chase you also learn to hate them at times also. Chase with his womanizing ways and Brandon with his over bearing protectiveness. Sometimes you want Harper to leave them both!

Even at the end i couldn't decide if i was happy how it turned out and who i truly wanted Harper to be with. Even though i loved Chase i didn't know if he was the right guy for the character over Brandon, or if perhaps Brandon was too protective for Harper. 

All i can say is...READ IT!!

Word's can't describe how good this story is.
