Title: Castle Hill: A Joss and Braden Novella (On Dublin Street #2.5)
Author: Samantha Young
Publisher: NAL (Intermix)
Braden Carmichael never imagined he’d fall as hard and as fast as he did for Jocelyn Butler. He also could not have anticipated how difficult it would be to convince her to give in to love. But now that he has her, he’s never letting go. He’s got it all planned—the passionate proposal, the dream wedding, the sexy Hawaiian honeymoon—even the perfect family they’ll start.
After trying to flee from her painful past, Joss is finally allowing herself to embrace the future. But when things start moving faster than she anticipated, she finds herself panicking over something Braden can’t understand. After everything they’ve been through, Joss is sure that their love can survive even her worst fears. But, this time, she may push Braden too far—and risk losing everything all over again…
Have already reading about Joss and Braden in On Dublin Street you get to see the other side of what they are doing in today. These characters are my favorite in Samantha Young's series because you can relate to them and see how much Braden love Joss despite their flaws. From the very beginning of Chapter 1 it did remind me how much I love this couple and book boyfriend. swoon.
After the loss of Joss' family, she is now happier with Braden. It was great to see the very beginning of how he proposed to her as well as she is still affected with loss she fears losing Braden. She learns to face the future head on. Castle Hill novella covers between the epilogue and even after the wedding. I love novellas because you get to see the in between and an update of these characters. They are very much in love and are surrounded by friends and family as they go through this journey together. It was read and not all rainbows since they were facing real issues couples go through. Events did happen to test their relationship as well as strengthen it.
Samantha Young is an author to love because while she does surprise her readers, she did it beautifully. It was like going home back to these characters. I hope this isnt the last of seeing them because with that ending I would love to see more of them. It was also sexy, funny and the chemistry was HOT. I loved it all!! Joss and Braden's romance is hotter and stronger. Overall the writing was addicting and I am looking forward to many more of her books!!
