Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare…
Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well—until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core.
Braden Carmichael is used to getting what he wants, and he’s determined to get Jocelyn into his bed. Knowing how skittish she is about entering a relationship, Braden proposes an arrangement that will satisfy their intense attraction without any strings attached.
But after an intrigued Jocelyn accepts, she realizes that Braden won’t be satisfied with just mind-blowing passion. The stubborn Scotsman is intent on truly knowing her… down to the very soul.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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 she's going to move in her new flat, at Dublin Street. With Ellie, her new roomate and Braden Carmichael, who's pursuing her relentlessly, she will need to face her demons sooner or later if she wants a future with them in her life. She's good at pushing people away, so why is it hard with them? And is she going to succeed in the end or people are going to get hurt?
"Babe, nice lingerie is for seducing a man. I'm already fucking seduced."
I'm still in a book hangover after meeting Braden. This sexy, arrogant man who was sex on legs, he was a swoon worthy book boyfriend. If you haven't mete him yet, go ahead. I dare you to meet him and note fall for him. I also liked the heroine. It's certainly not easy if you have to face the life she did. Losing your whole family in one day is simply unthinkable to me and I have no idea how I would go on with my life, that's why I understood where she was coming from and I could excuse her irrational at times behavior. But I can't deny my heart was bleeding for Braden and Ellie, when she wouldn't let them in.
There are so many awesome reviews out there & I'm still at loss for words, even though it's been a week or so since I read this book. It's sexy, witty, funny, emotional & you're going to love the main & the secondary characters. This now belongs officially to my favorite books! I would recommend it to any romance lover. You don't want to miss this, trust me.
PS: Thank you, Alice for the recommendation!! I owe you a good one! :))♥
