Summary (cr: goodreads)

Johanna Walker is used to taking charge. But she’s about to meet someone who will make her lose control....

It has always been up to Johanna to care for her family, particularly her younger brother, Cole. With an absent father and a useless mother, she’s been making decisions based on what’s best for Cole for as long as she can remember. She even determines what men to date by how much they can provide for her brother and her, not on whatever sparks may—or may not—fly.

But with Cameron MacCabe, the attraction is undeniable. The sexy new bartender at work gives her butterflies every time she looks at him. And for once, Jo is tempted to put her needs first. Cam is just as obsessed with getting to know Jo, but her walls are too solid to let him get close enough to even try.

Then Cam moves into the flat below Jo’s, and their blistering connection becomes impossible to ignore. Especially since Cam is determined to uncover all of Jo’s secrets …even if it means taking apart her defenses piece by piece.

My Review: (also in goodreads)

This is the second book in Samantha Young's romantic novel universe after On Dublin Street. It focuses on Johanna Walker and Adam MacCabe. A story about believing in oneself and being independent. How to move past the bullies and the dark of the past and hope that there might be a bright future. I was going to give this 3 1/2 stars due to the fact that at first it relied on how strong Braden and Joss' story was for me. It relied on the secondary characters more than what the buildup fr the protagonist would do. But there were a few moments in which I was actually teary-eyed: the dad scene, Uncle Mick scene and the little brother Cole scene that is why it earned 4 stars. All in all, I was appreciated their story as well as the familiar faces

Till the next read...
