A woman used to taking charge is about to meet a man who'll make her lose control in this novel from the New York Times bestselling author of On Dublin Street.
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.
In some ways it's not quite as good as Dublin Street, maybe mostly because I adore that book beyond most every other book, and because I read that first, however in other ways I may like this book more, maybe because the characters are a little more grounded and earthy or maybe because Cam is a sexy beast!
I was hesitant to read this one because of the character Jo was painted in the first book, but I’m so glad I did. Definitely a favorite read!

Fantastic, a wonderful sequel, satisfying with plenty of follow up with other characters from the first novel interwoven into the storyline.
