Four years ago, Jocelyn Butler left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Edinburgh. Burying the grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without any real attachments has worked well for her so far but when Joss moves into a fantastic apartment on Dublin Street, her carefully guarded world is shaken to its core by her new roommate’s sexy older brother.

Braden Carmichael is a man who always gets what he wants. And what he wants is Jocelyn in his bed. Knowing how skittish Joss is concerning any kind of relationship, Braden proposes a sexual arrangement that should satisfy the intense attraction between them without it developing into anything ‘more’. An intrigued Jocelyn agrees, completely unprepared for the Scotsman and his single-minded determination to strip the stubborn young woman bare…to the very soul.

My Rating: 

My Thoughts:
THIS WAS AMAZING!! My first time reading a Samantha Young novel and I absolutely loved it! The pace was amazing, the characters were unbelievable awesome and the romance drew me in. I loved everything about this novel.

Jocelyn aka Joss is a woman without a lot of hardship in her life and has learned to close herself off emotionally from others. I hated seeing her so down and quiet around others, but with a past like hers I could understand it. Jocelyn needed to learn to allow herself to love others without feeling like she was bad luck to them. I enjoyed watching her truly grow into herself and learn to let go of and accept her past. Jocelyn is truly a strong woman.

Braden was a man of wonder. I freaking drooled over him. He was very different from most male characters I read about. He was kind, loving, cocky as hell, demanding and what made him different for me was his sense of being a one woman man from the start. I loved how he respected woman and always stayed with only one in terms of sex and love. He never cheated which I truly appreciated about him. Braden had a pure heart and that for a man was perfect.

The romance was unbelievably amazing. I loved the interaction between Braden and Joss from the moment they met catching the cab. I knew things would be intense between them, but they were insane. I loved it! The communication and trust they built, the sex was insane and I loved them both. I totally hated their little "separation" but I loved how cocky Braden was about it. Freaking amazing couple.

I totally enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more in this series to find out about the other characters. I loved everything about this. Definitely an awesome contemporary romance novel.
