Logan spent two years paying for the mistakes he made. Now, he’s ready to start over. He has a great apartment, a good job, and plenty of women to distract him from his past. And one woman who is driving him to distraction…
Grace escaped her manipulative family by moving to a new city. Her new life, made to suit her own needs, is almost perfect. All she needs to do is find her Mr. Right—or at least figure out a way to ignore her irresistible yet annoying womanizer of a neighbor.
Grace is determined to have nothing to do with Logan until a life-changing surprise slowly begins turning the wild heartbreaker into exactly the kind of strong, stable man she’s been searching for. Only just when she begins to give into his charms, her own messy past threatens to derail everything they’ve worked to build…
The final On Dublin Street series book brings us Logan, who we first met in Echoes of Scotland Street, as an ex-con who’s trying to put his past behind him and start his life over. His next door neighbor, Grace, isn’t so pleased with his many late night visitors and she’s even more annoyed with the thin walls between their bedrooms. They don’t get off on the best foot but when a teenager comes to Logan claiming that he’s her father, Grace is there to help and finds herself hooked into Logan’s life more than she ever expected or wanted to be.
Grace grew up being verbally abused by her mother and finally cut her entire family out of her life years ago. She’s still “removing the venom” as she describes the flashbacks she’ll have to things her mother used to say to her, so her self-confidence isn’t the best. But she has a tight group of friends, her self-made family and she’s making a good life for herself. Now, she’s pulled into Logan’s life and she finds herself falling hard and fast for her irresistible neighbor who needs her help.
This series has been a little up and down for me, I either loved the books or didn’t care for them so I was pleasantly surprised with how easily I got hooked into Logan and Grace’s story. I was intrigued with Logan when he first came into the series during his sister Shannon’s story and I couldn’t wait to learn more about him. He’s sexy, he’s got that bad guy edge and I loved seeing him get thrown for a loop when his, possible daughter, shows up. It’s a plot line that I love more times than not and it worked for me big time here. I loved the daughter, Maia, I thought she was smart and my heart went out to her and her life prior to trying to find Logan. I really liked Logan and how he tries so hard with Maia and how he lets his guard down with Grace. I was especially drawn to Grace. I found her to so likable, so normal and I liked how she fit into Logan and Maia’s life and how taking a chance on Logan helped her finally get rid of the final demons that had been in her ear about her past for far too long.
Logan and Grace together = SEXY. Logan is a total alpha in the bedroom and Grace loves it. She flat out says if she trusts the man she’s with he can do anything he wants in the bedroom. When Logan hears this – yeah it’s all over at that point! They were sexy in the bedroom (or up against the wall) and they provided emotion strength for each other as they both have some issues from their past and present to get through.
I also appreciated that there was no real unneeded angst. Sure, this couple has some bumps along the way, but never did I think “really?” when it came to how they handle the problems that do come up. We get to see plenty of our old friends come across the page, Shannon gets a lot of page time and I always like learning who has kids now and what each past couple is up to.
This ended up being a book I read in a day and I wasn’t expecting to get drawn into the story as much as I did. Logan and Grace are so dang likeable and I loved seeing their relationship unfold. With this being the last book in the series, I appreciated the final chapter and Samantha Young giving us one final update for each couple. It’s a sweet way to end this series and I’m left looking forward to seeing what Young has in store for us next.
