Close to 5-stars -- I loved this story. I finished this in a day and am still thinking about Joss and Braedan. ♥ ( )

First off, I have to say this book cracked me open in a way I didn't expect. I did some serious eye rolling after the prologue where her family is killed in a car accident. It was a well written prologue; it's just that I am so tired of dead parents in books. It seems like every character is an orphan these days.

But the panic attacks that plagued her years later over not dealing with their loss definitely rang true to me and triggered something similar in my chest over the loss of one of my best friends years ago. So I spent most of the book reading through a haze of grief and pain, which helped me relate to the main character in a significant way. However, I thought the episode with Dru was unnecessary pain. She already has a dead family, why all that, too?

Young has a couple of writing ticks (i.e. her stomach 'flipped' about a dozen times throughout the course of the book, and her excessive use of the hero's name needed to be pared way down), but the character development was solid. I even laughed out loud a few times.

The sex was hot, too! Braden is a caveman but in the best way. I really liked that he wasn't afraid to say "I love you" or fight for her, rather than just giving up, even though she was doing her best to push him away.

Beautiful book, but now I definitely need to read something made of fluff and cotton candy. *sniff* ( )

Not the kind of book I usually read, but once I started I couldn't put it down. I started it this afternoon and read it straight through with only one brief interruption. I loved the (admittedly simple) progression of the plot and I did find many of the plot 'twists' to be easy to predict. I will definitely find and read Samantha Young's other books. ( )

The grammar made me cry at times(um, proofreading, hello ?), I frankly wanted to put the book down halfway through thanks to Joss's whinyness and Braden went from only character that was making a strong good impression to douche in about sixty seconds. yes, his tenacity in not giving up is admirable and the way he strongarms Joss into facing her issues felt like the right thing at times because she is really a drama queen(YOUR FRIEND IS SICK YET ITS STILL ABOUT YOU) but it doesn't change the fact that he's a douche, so 2 stars ! and that's cos I didn't abandon it.

Hot steamy sex scenes~ nothing raunchy or over detailed.
Rich powerful male however the girl holds her own money wise.
Kinds of reminds me of Bare to you so if you liked that you will like this book. Towards the end of the book I was getting mad because Jocelyn was so damn bullheaded and wouldn't just give into Love even know it was breaking her heart. I had to actually put down the book for a bit as it was just getting to be too much. Jocelyn definitely comes to terms with a lot of demons. Braden does to but he is much quicker at it and doesn't give up so easily. Wonderful ending.................iloveladyporn.com

Book description
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

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.
