Title: Before Jamaica Lane
Series: On Dublin Street #3
Author: Samantha Young

Despite her outgoing demeanor, Olivia is painfully insecure around the opposite sex—usually, she can’t get up the nerve to approach guys she’s interested in. But moving to Edinburgh has given her a new start, and, after she develops a crush on a sexy postgrad, she decides it’s time to push past her fears and go after what she wants.

Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but to his close friends, he’s as loyal as they come. So when Olivia turns to him with her relationship woes, he offers to instruct her in the art of flirting and to help her become more sexually confident.

The friendly education in seduction soon grows into an intense and hot romance. But then Nate’s past and commitment issues rear their ugly heads, and Olivia is left brokenhearted. When Nate realizes he’s made the biggest mistake of his life, he will have to work harder than he ever has before to entice his best friend into falling back in love with him—or he may lose her forever….


Before Jamaica Lane begins with Olivia and Nate being very close friends for the past nine months. They seem a little bit odd to the rest of the group because they spend so much time together but they are strictly friends until Liv makes it known how unhappy she really is. She has a whole lot of issues she's never let ANYONE know about before. And when Nate gets the opportunity to help Liv with all of the's issues things start to change for them. They both start to realize how they actually feel about each other. But Nate lost someone he once loved doesn't ever want to do that again. And Liv is living in the land of denial, until it all comes to a head... 

These two have a beautiful romance. I loved this book, it was awesome. Now it would have been a five star but Liv really pissed me off towards the end, and I just hated her for a little while. She eventually got back in my good graces but she just sort of rubbed me the wrong way, and I hated the choices she made. Other than that it was really nice to see the characters from previous books, but there was a slight hitch between Joss and Braden that made me really sad. Nate was an awesome character as well. He had a lot of issues, and was kind of jerk at times, but when he finally got himself in check he was the perfect hero. I really loved him!
I loved the book. This series gets better and better with each book, and now I can not wait for the next one.
