Down London Road by Samantha Young
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Even after noting that some fans of the first book were disappointed in the second book in this series, Down London Road, I was still eagerly anticipating its release.
I am pleased to say that I loved it. It is one of those books that finds me glaring at the clock in the wee hours on the morning wishing time would stand still because I know I need to put my book down and get some sleep...but I just didn't want to stop reading...the story had me so engrossed that I just needed to know it all.
I really liked the characters, surprising myself that I warmed to Cam after he was so harshly judgmental of Jo in the beginning, but warm to him I did and I loved that he was man enough to admit his faults. I could understand why Jo was dating someone like Malcolm, after everything she had been through she was just trying to protect her brother, but also protect herself. I always find it difficult to read romance novels when the characters you know are going to end up with each other, are dating other people. This story just flowed so well for me that it really didn't bother me. In the real world it isn't unheard of that people dating all of a sudden find themselves attracted to someone else. Neither Cam nor Jo had been in their relationship for a long period of time so I found it plausible that they found themselves attracted to each other.
I don't want to give away spoilers, so I'll just say that I think Samantha Young has written a wonderful story and I will eagerly anticipate her next release.
