Down London Road (On Dublin Street #2) by Samantha Young
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.

I am sure by now you’ve read On Dublin Street. If not, please stop reading and check my review on it!
Do you remember Jo? She was Joss’ bartender colleague on Club 39. We know she is looking for some “sugar daddies”, as Joss kindly jokes, because she must support her family. I remember my sister-in-law asking very seriously if she must read Jo’s story, because she did not like her. Please don’t do that! Not only you absolutely will love her and Cam, but you will also meet Nate and Olivia. They will have their own story in the coming books.
Jo is a remarkable young lady and her life’s journey will make your heart ache. Also, FYI, her baby brother will have his own story when he’s fully grown up! Therefore, you need to read Down London Road in order to fully experiment the series.
We meet Jo dating Malcom for 3 months, a 39-year-old. Her oldest “sugar daddy” as Joss bluntly says. There’s a 15-year gap between them, but Jo genuinely cares for him. After meeting Cam, who also had a girlfriend at that time, they feel a certain connection and want they cannot ignore. Luckily, Cam must in the same building as Jo and invades her life.
Cam’s and Jo’s are so determined to undermine each other, that they are bloody fun to read. They are so good together! On a side note, we also find more about the rest of their family and friends, which is a plus.
As a conclusion, if you plan one reading the whole series, don’t judge Jo. And don’t skip this because you will loose valuable information on future couples. Her life is not easy, especially when you learn her true life family crisis, and also it’s not fun to see her father returning and harming her.
