Book Review: Until Fountain Bridge (On Dublin Street #1.5) by: Samantha Young

Add To Goodreads

"Ellie Carmichael had a crush on Adam Sutherland, her brother, Braden’s, best friend, for years, and although Adam treated her with proprietary concern he made it clear he thought of her only as a little sister.

Over the years, as Ellie’s crush develops into love, her romantic idealism makes it difficult for her to move on. To make matters worse, as she’s gotten older, Adam’s attitude has changed toward her. His affection for her is now joined by attraction, but his loyalty to Braden, and his fear of losing the only family he has, stops him from claiming Ellie the way she wishes he would.

But one night his attraction is put to the test, and as much as Adam would like things to remain the same everything changes between them in a simple brush of the lips.

Soon lust, love, jealousy and heartbreak combine to force change upon their relationship… and Adam discovers the hard way that life is too damn short to spend it on regret."

My Thoughts:

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of On Dublin Street. That book lives in a land with books I will never ever forget and is a book that has created a standard for other books for me. So when I saw that anyone who pre-ordered Down London Road had exclusive access to this novella, I was ecstatic, because obviously I already had that book pre-ordered. I was so excited to be able to see Adam and Ellie’s story firsthand. 

I adore Ellie. She is such a sweetheart and I fully attribute the beginning of Jocelyn’s transformation to her. It really hurt to see how much pain she dealt with because of Adam and honestly these two had a lot of drama on their own. More drama than I think anyone really realized. Speaking of Adam…. holy shiz! He is schmexy. He may not be Braden, but he is definitely someone I could read about again and again. 

Part of what I loved about this novella was seeing some of the events from On Dublin Street from an outside perspective. Not going to lie, I ate up every little mention of Jocelyn and Braden and it made me all giddy inside knowing how their story was going to end. 

Until Fountain Bridge is a lovely novella and was the perfect distraction while I wait for Down London Road. I really loved getting to see more of Ellie and learning what a romantic Adam really is.
