[Adam and Ellie’s] love story is poignant and romantic and I loved reading every moment of it! ~ Under the Covers

UNTIL FOUNTAIN BRIDGE is a free read from Samantha Young but you have to work for it a little bit. As a promotional campaign for DOWN LONDON ROAD, the sequel to ON DUBLIN STREET, readers who pre-order DOWN LONDON ROAD and send their invoice to Young will receive this free read.

So the question is, is it worth it? YES! I absolutely loved this novella and was very impressed with the way Young tackled Adam and Ellie’s story. Adam and Ellie were characters that intrigued me from the first book in the series. I know I’m not alone since many readers were dying for their book. Though this isn’t a full length novel, Young does a stellar job of depicting the romance between Adam and Ellie within 80 pages. Now that’s quite impressive since Adam and Ellie have a unique past.

Adam is Braden’s best friend and since Ellie is Braden’s little sister, Adam has never made the move on her despite his feelings. Young tells the story of Ellie and Adam through a series of diary entries written from Ellie’s POV throughout the years. We see them together as young as when Ellie was 15 and Adam was 21 and things progress from there.

Readers will get a chance to see how deeply their love runs through some jealously and some angst. Again, for 80 pages, fitting all that from a character’s past is hard but Young manages to do it with ease. Their love story is poignant and romantic and I loved reading every moment of it!

Also? The sex is smoking hot! I think Young really has a knack for writing sensual sex scenes because they are always so well done and filled with emotion.

If you’re a fan of the series, there is no way you can miss this novella. Adam and Ellie are a great couple and could possibly bump Joss and Braden from that coveted top spot!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m a 26 year old obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I’m also a reviewer for FreshFiction.com. Over there, I’m also a columnist. I have a column called Into the Night that discusses the latest and greatest news in the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy genre. I also work as a virtual assistant for authors.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
