99 problems, and a book ain't one

Before Jamaica Lane  - Samantha Young



  LOVED this so much. I love the way Samantha Young writes romance. This may even take the cake as my favorite book in this series. A best friend romance done right is absolutely amazing to me, and my friends I don't know that there is any kind of romance that Young doesn't do right.



  Both Nate and Olivia were great. I liked how awkward Olivia was. She was adorably shy, especially with men. Her early interactions with the opposite sex were pretty comical. Olivia was inexperienced and naïve when it came to men, but she was sweet, funny, and a little weird, in the best way possible. Somewhere along the way Olivia lost her muchness, and with the help of her good friend Nate, she was going to get the confidence she had been so desperately lacking. It started out seemingly  innocent enough, but as you can imagine....it got pretty steamy pretty quick. Nate, **Sigh**. He was so great. Nate had his issues, don't get me wrong, but he was a fantastic friend, and he light those pages on fire when he got going. The friendship they had was sweet and beautiful and it only got even more amazing when they took things to the VERY HOT next level.



  I, as always, was glad to see more of the other incredible characters from this series. I seriously can't get enough of them! It's nice to see all of them moving forward in such great ways. I love that even though they may not be the stars of the show as we keep going, they are still there and progressing in each new addition. Samantha Young has made her way into my buy instantly list of authors. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the books of hers that I have read so far. On Dublin Street has been so much fun to read, I can't wait to see what's coming next! If you haven't started it yet, I highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys things that are awesome!
