What Book's Up, Buttercup?

Down London Road by Samantha Young

on February 10, 2016

While I am reading several other novels, I am also reading one on audio. Right now I am reading Down London Road by Samantha Young. This is the second novel in the On Dublin Street series. On Dublin Street was one of my favorite romance novels that I had read the year it came out, so this had a lot to live up to. This book is not about a rich playboy who is throwing money around. No, this is about real people who have real flaws, real issues, and more realistic love stories. In Down London Road, we meet Jo who is a bartender by night and an administrative assistant several times a week by day. She is dating a rich older man named Malcolm who she cares about, not just for his money. She is far from wealthy, she struggles with money, taking care of her teenage brother and an alcoholic mother. When she meets a man who judges her from the get-go named Cameron, she is torn. She is drawn to him romantically, but she is also angry for the way he acts as if he already knows her. What will happen between Jo and Cam? Will she give into temptation and breakup with Malcolm to be with Cam? Will she ignore her feelings and stay in a relationship that does not have the same passion so she can be financially taken care of?

In this novel we see more of the characters from the first book, and see how their relationships have progressed as well. It was like seeing old friends again. I am loving this read, and cannot wait to see how it ends.
