Logan from Echoes of Scotland Street is back with his own smoldering story, as the New York Times bestselling On Dublin Street series returns…
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…
From the Trade Paperback edition.
Grace isn’t thrilled with her new neighbor. His stream of women are keeping her up at night as Logan’s bedroom wall is right next to Grace’s. They have words on a regular basis but it doesn’t seem to stop the annoying racket from Logan apartment.
Logan spent two years in prison for beating up the man who beat and almost raped his sister. He’s now out and doing well working as a manager in a nightclub. He is having words with Grace about yet another night’s disturbance when he is interrupted by a young girl claiming to be his son. Logan is understandably upset but determined to get to the bottom of the situation. He grabs Grace and they all head off to Glasgow. What they find is a woman that Logan used to date but is now a junkie. Logan ends up taking custody of Maia, who is definitely his daughter, but as Maia is a bit traumatized so she ends up staying with Grace.
With Maia staying with Grace, Logan and Maia become closer and closer with her. They spend a lot of time together and Grace and Logan actually end up becoming friends. Grace starts having deeper feelings for Logan but after a torrid liaison against her kitchen wall, Logan tells Grace that there can be nothing between them.
Grace was hurt and betrayed by her family and has had trust issues for many years. When Logan realizes that he loves Grace and wants nothing more than to be with her she’s not willing to put her out there again only to have it ripped out when Logan changes his mind.
The final book in the On Dublin Street series was a good one. I really loved all of the characters especially Grace and Logan. Maia was an awesome addition as well and rounded out the story really well.
Grace’s childhood had been full of neglect from her father and criticism and betrayal from her mother. The fact that she was so well grounded and…normal, despite the horrible role models she had, was amazing. She was kind and giving, loving and generous with herself and her time. I loved how she was with Maia and how understanding and nonjudgmental she was with Logan. I loved how she was there for Logan when he needed her and vice versa.
Logan was such a good guy and I loved reading about him. He’d been through some horrible stuff himself but had come out on top. His undying love for Grace gave him an A+ in my book.
At the end of the book we got to see a little slice of life from all of the heroines from the entire series and that was pretty cool. Seeing what they were up to and what they planned to be up to was a nice way to tend the book and the series. I will definitely miss On Dublin Street and all of its characters.
If you haven’t read the series then you definitely should. If you have read it then you won’t want to miss this last book.
