From the New York Times bestselling author of On Dublin Street and Down London Road comes a new novella about finding love in familiar places…
Ellie has been in love with Adam Sutherland for as long as she can remember. What started as a childhood crush on her older brother’s best friend soon bloomed into full-blown infatuation. Unfortunately, it also meant full-blown heartache, as Adam refused to fall for Braden’s little sister.
But it took a crisis to make Adam realize he’s wasted too much time denying his feelings for her. Unwilling to waste a second more, he decided to make Ellie his, no matter the consequences. Now happily settled with the woman he’s pined after for years, he’s about to find out what their ten year courtship was like for her, through the journals she kept during their ups and many downs. And though Adam may have Ellie now, he has no idea how close he came to losing her…
Includes a preview of Down London Road!
Cute! Like Els.
This book was very cute but I still loved the first one the most. But definitely a good read.
Great to read Adam and Ellie’s story!
Review originally posted on Reading Books Like a Boss
Adam and Ellie's love story was one of the secondary storylines in On Dublin Street and when I saw that Samantha Young was writing a short novella to give us all the dirty details, I was so freaking excited. Ellie Carmichael is one of the most endearing book characters. She's so incredibly sweet and easy to love. I can see how hard it must have been for Joss to try to push her away.
Ellie has been in love with Adam for years. As one of her big brother's best friends, Adam kept his distance from Ellie until life made it to where he couldn't stay away from her. It's just an unspoken rule that you don't go for your best friend's little sister. This rule frustrated Ellie to no end for years as she waited on the sidelines for Adam to make his feelings known.
The history of their love story is told in a series of diary entires that Ellie had kept from her teen years through the events in On Dublin Street, which I enjoyed reading. One of my favorite moments of the book was seeing the night Ellie went to Adam's apartment and was sent home unsatisfied and angry. Ellie spoke about it in On Dublin Street but I had always wanted to see that scene through Ellie's eyes.
This book was a lot of fun to read, even though it was just them reminiscing. I'm glad Young didn't make their story a completely novel, the novella was the perfect length to share their story with the reader.
I want my money back!
I bought this thinking it was about Ellie and Adam after the events of "On Dublin Street". This is about two hundred pages of flash backs from Ellie's point of view. I feel cheated. What a waste!
