Logan from Echoes of Scotland Street is back with his own smoldering story, as the New York Times bestselling On Dublin Street series returns…
Logan spent two years paying for the mistakes he made. Now, he’s ready to start over. He has a great apartment, a good job, and plenty of women to distract him from his past. And one woman who is driving him to distraction…
Grace escaped her manipulative family by moving to a new city. Her new life, made to suit her own needs, is almost perfect. All she needs to do is find her Mr. Right—or at least figure out a way to ignore her irresistible yet annoying womanizer of a neighbor.
Grace is determined to have nothing to do with Logan until a life-changing surprise slowly begins turning the wild heartbreaker into exactly the kind of strong, stable man she’s been searching for. Only just when she begins to give into his charms, her own messy past threatens to derail everything they’ve worked to build…
Situations and how they have to stand up to those family members so that their relationship can survive.
This is a great read and keeps you turning pages from beginning to end. I certainly am now keen to read the other On Dublin Street Novels. The characters are interesting and complex and the story line is anything but predictable.
Both Grace and Logan don’t get off to a good start as she confronts him about one of his many “One night stands”. Logan see her as a pompous uptight English woman and she only sees the” Womanizer” in him, however, they are thrown together when his 15 year old daughter (unbeknownst to him) from a previous relationship declares that she wants to live with him.
Grace is drawn into the drama and eventually realizes that Logan is not the man she thought he was. Slowly they build a relationship but Grace has a family problem of her own and when she learns her mother has cancer she has to make decisions that could jeopardize the relationship she has with Logan. Confronting her father Grace makes him realize what her life was like growing up. A prominent figure in society who is worried about family and media image Grace’s father is appalled that all this went on while he was “in house” however feels Grace should “do what is right” for the “family”.
Logan also has a family challenge that could see him back in jail. Will he jeopardize what he has with his daughter and Grace to prove a point?
The chemistry between Logan and Grace is delightful and the reader can easily visualize this large burly Scotsman with a relatively petite well-bred English lady. They definitely prove that opposites attract.
Having read this novel I will definitely seek out the other books in the Dublin Street series.
