Down London Road (On Dublin Street, #2)

Down London Road (On Dublin Street, #2) - Samantha Young Nose Graze — Young Adult book reviews4.5 StarsDown London Road was sooooo good! It brought back so many great memories from reading On Dublin Street. In fact, I now find myself itching to reread On Dublin Street.Although I do think I liked On Dublin Street a bit more, Down London Road was still a solid book. It was fun, hot, kept me entertained, and I definitely let out a few insane giggles! That's always a good sign!What was great about Down London Road was that it intertwined with On Dublin Street, but it was still a completely different story. Jocelyn and Braden are still in Down London Road and have decent sized roles, so it really felt like the stories connected in a relevant way. But I loved feeling like I was in the same neighborhood and reading about the same characters. I had forgotten how much I missed them!I think Samantha Young played the romance brilliantly. When it first starts out, Johanna is dating a guy named Malcolm... and I kind of liked him. He was sweet and easy going, and I felt bad for him when Johanna started crushing on Cameron. But very slowly, Samantha pulled me away from Malcolm and got me on team Cameron. I'm still not even sure how she did it. It's like she literally broke me down. Usually when this happens with books, I sympathize with the first guy and the author never gets me to fall for the second guy. But that was SO not the case here. Samantha Young had me falling head over heels for Cam. (And thank goodness, because otherwise I think the book would have been ruined for me!)There actually weren't a ton of sexy scenes in Down London Road but the few that were there blew me away. There's this one scene in a dressing room... OH MY GOD O_O That's all I have to say about that. O_OI liked how the conflicts in Down London Road felt very realistic. So many times in romance books the main conflicts are just so... petty. They weren't petty in Down London Road. I could totally relate to them and understand where both characters were coming from.Down London Road really solidified my love for Samantha Young's books. I totally have my eye on her next one in this series, Down Jamaica Lane. I know it's going to ROCK!
