Audio Review: Down London Road by Samantha Young

Down London Road by Samantha Young

Johanna Walker is used to taking charge. But she’s about to meet someone who will make her lose control....

It has always been up to Johanna to care for her family, particularly her younger brother, Cole. With an absent father and a useless mother, she’s been making decisions based on what’s best for Cole for as long as she can remember. She even determines what men to date by how much they can provide for her brother and her, not on whatever sparks may—or may not—fly.

But with Cameron MacCabe, the attraction is undeniable. The sexy new bartender at work gives her butterflies every time she looks at him. And for once, Jo is tempted to put her needs first. Cam is just as obsessed with getting to know Jo, but her walls are too solid to let him get close enough to even try.

Then Cam moves into the flat below Jo’s, and their blistering connection becomes impossible to ignore. Especially since Cam is determined to uncover all of Jo’s secrets …even if it means taking apart her defenses piece by piece.

My Thoughts:
This one comes after On Dublin Street, which is Joss and Braden's story. I didn't read that one and it wasn't a problem. I had a bit of trouble getting into the story at first. Neither Jo nor Cam is very likeable at the beginning. Jo dates men for their money (so she can support her family) and Cam says some not-so-nice things about her because of that. Both are dating other people for a good portion of the book. They end up working together and living in the same building, so they end up spending a lot of time together and he finds out more of her secrets than she would like. Lots of drama. This is a great book if you're in the mood for dark, steamy, and angsty with a happy ending. And there is more to come in this series. Before Jamaica Lane will be about Nate and Olivia.

The audiobook is amazing. It could have a lot to do with the narrator's Scottish accent. I think I could listen to her read the phone book. She does a great job with the American accents in the book as well. There are distinct voices for all of the characters and just the right amount of drama. The beginning and end of the book have a bit of music to set the mood.

My Rating: ****
Steam Factor: !!!!
*Notes: Strong language.
