Blurb: Joss and Braden Carmichael are blissfully married living in their townhouse on Dublin Street with their two beautiful children. It’s a life Joss never expected to have, and one she’s grateful for every day.

But… what if she never met Braden and Ellie Carmichael on that fateful day when she

was only twenty-two years old?

When Joss is asked to write a story about how her life might have turned out if a pivotal moment in it never happened, she thinks of the day she met both Braden and Ellie Carmichael. If she had never met them where might she have ended up? Joss believes no matter where life may have taken her it would have inevitably led her to Braden. But what if she was thirty instead of twenty-two when they met? How would she have felt about risking her heart then?

And even if she was older and wiser and ready to fall madly in love, what if too much had happened to Braden to make him the man that would risk his heart to save hers?

Will time be their enemy… or is it possible that two souls are meant for one another in any reality?

Stars Over Castle Hill is an alternate reality novella of a romance that captured the hearts of readers all over the world. Joss and Braden are back with a story that is just as emotional, passionate and sexy as their first!

Before Jamaica Lane by Samantha Young

BJLBook: Before Jamaica Lane

Author: Samantha Young

Series: On Dublin Street #3

Review by: Onnica

Basic story: Olivia Holloway is settling down to her new life in Edinburgh with her father. She enjoys the sense of family she’s found in her father and friends Nate, Joss, Braden and Jo. Finally, she has a support system, even though the ongoing grief she feels at having lost her mother remains. She has a new job at the University library which keeps her busy. If only she could get over her crippling shyness with the opposite sex, life would be perfect…

Nate Sawyer is Olivia’s best friend. Since her arrival in Scotland, they’ve been inseparable – they just get each other. Nate has a reputation as a ladykiller, loving the ladies and leaving them. He never makes them promises he has no intention keeping. Olivia is drawn to the handsome Nate, but values his friendship above all else. However, he may be the one person who can break down her fears and shyness. When he accepts her proposal to teach her how to flirt and be confident in herself, well, that’s when things get interesting…

Why you should read this: If you (like me) are a huge Samantha Young fan, then reading this book is a no-brainer. Personally, I think this book could be even better than On Dublin Street – and believe me, that takes some doing. In this book, we learn all about Olivia, who was briefly introduced in Down London Road. But then you get all of the ensemble characters too – the ones you’ve grown to love from On Dublin Street and Until Fountain Bridge – so this book feels like meeting up with long-lost friends. I loved the happy banter and friendship between Olivia and Nate. They’re funny and care about each other so much. I believed their characters and I happily cringed along with Olivia’s embarrassing moments. Nate was off-the-charts sexy and yet likeable at the same time. You discover why he is the way he is and it’s very touching.

What you might hate: Nothing to hate on here for me. You may find Olivia a little belligerent towards the end but she’s just trying to safeguard her heart! Beyond that, it was a perfect read for me – I’ve read four Samantha Young books in the past week and they’ve all been exceptional. I think I may also be a wee bit obsessed…

Rating: Easiest decision ever. 5/5 panty-melting stars. (Ok, that was gross – apologies) The chemistry between Liv and Nate is hot, hot, hot and it never lets up. A touching, gritty read, set in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. Next time I head up to Edinburgh, I’ll be waiting for Nate, not Braden!
