On Dublin Street is about a women who is living a very lonely life trying to ignore her demons, and not build any attachments with anyone she's around. Until she gets a new "flat" mate, and finds all kinds of things are messing up her plan to continue living her life alone.
I really loved Jocelyn in this book. She is very smart, and has a good head on her shoulders. I love how she knows she has a 'problem' so she actually gets help with it, instead of completely denying that she has a problem at all. However I did get very upset with her on one decision she makes towards the end of the book, I just couldn't believe she was acting that selfish. I mean seriously, she really needed to get her "head out of her butt" and be there for her friends, because they were there for her when she needed them to be, even though she pushed them away. Braden is another character I seriously loved about this book! He was hot, sweet, and he went after exactly what he wanted even though he knew it was going to be difficult. He knew from the very start that Jocelyn was going to be a challenge, but he was looking forward to getting to know everything about her even though it would be hard. He had is own set of trust issues to deal with, but he seems to be better at dealing with that than Jocelyn is at dealing with her problems. Even though both of their problems are on a whole different level, he still had a better handle on it when it came to Jocelyn. You could really tell she was is exception to everything. I love the way this book was written, it was funny, the characters lovable, and a touch of sadness. Now again Jocelyn was the only one that got on my nerves at times, but other than that this was truly a wonderful book! I can not wait to read more from this author. :)
