If you haven’t read Young’s books yet, you’re missing out on a lot of sexiness and Braden-induced hormones!  ~ Under the Covers

If you love Braden, then there is absolutrly no way that you can miss out on Castle Hill. Samantha Young pens a brilliant continuation of Braden and Joss’s whirlwind romance in this novella. I didn’t think I could love this couple any more than I already had, but this proved me wrong.

10% into this book I thought, wow, this is really good. About about 20% in, I was floored by the writing, the way Young managed to tell a full story even while skipping considerable amount of time in between. The same sexy banter you loved in ODS in present in this book and I actually think Young outdid herself with the sex scenes. They feel organic and true to the characters while also feeling bigger and better than before.

By 50%, I was nearly hyperventilating. There are so many scenes in this book that are worth the reread. Truth be told, I think I may have highlighted and bookmarked the hell out of this story, just so I could go back and re-experience their love and passion once again.

Interestingly enough, as if this book didn’t already seem wonderful already, Young adds a conflict in that really takes this book from good to stellar. Joss’s emotions are all over the place and the miscommunication between her and Braden creates a well between them. It’s really wonderful to read and I thought that Young did a good job of portraying both their uncertainties and worries in a believable manner.

After this, I want to do an immediate reread of On Dublin Street. But I think I will settle with reading Before Jamaica Lane, the next instalment in the series. If you haven’t read Young’s books yet, you’re missing out on a lot of sexiness and Braden-induced hormones! Get to it!

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!
