What I’m Talking About:
Echoes of Scotland Street begins with a flashback of fifteen-year-old Shannon MacLeod briefly meeting gorgeous boy-next-door Cole Walker, while she’s visiting her grandmother in Edinburg. Their chemistry is tangible from the moment they see each other, however the spell is quickly broken as Shannon has to return to Glasgow.
Fast forward ten years, Shannon is back in Edinburg, and this time she’s there to stay. Back at home, Shannon has left her family and friends, only taking with her a lot of guilt and plenty of insecurities. With just a few belongings and not much more to her name, Shannon is desperate for a job that can help her start over and forget everything she left behind.
Life is all about second chances and as Shannon finds a job and housing arrangements, she is ready to give herself a second chance at being happy—which includes swearing off men for good—that is until she meets (once again) that gorgeous boy from so long ago, Cole Walker.
The moment Cole sees Shannon, he recalls the moment they met. Even though many years have passed, Cole remembers their first encounter like it was just a few days ago. While Cole is ready to pick up where they left off, Shannon reminds herself that she is no longer interested in gorgeous boys, especially the tattooed, dangerous kind.
Shannon and Cole have a few things in common and plenty of chemistry to make up where they may lack, but is that enough for them to take advantage of this second chance, and make it last? …
You’ll definitely will want to find out! Samantha delivers once again a tantalizing story. From the moment I started this book I knew I was in trouble, lucky me, I’d cleared my schedule and I had a whole day to devour this novel. Having read all her previous novels in the On Dublin Street series, I had very high expectations, however this novel not only exceeded said expectations, but I’m convinced that this novel is now one of my favorites, only second to the original On Dublin Street.
Old fans and new fans alike, are in for a treat. If you haven’t read any of the other books in the series, you have nothing to worry about, Echoes of Scotland Street stands on its own from start to finish. This definitely a story that you won’t want to miss!
My Rating: A+ Personal Favorite
About the Book:
Shannon MacLeod has always gone for the wrong type of man. After she drifted from one toxic relationship to the next, her last boyfriend gave her a wakeup call in the worst possible way. With her world shattered, she’s sworn off men—especially those of the bad-boy variety.
Cole Walker is exactly the sort that Shannon wants to avoid—gorgeous, tattooed, charming, and cocky. But his rough exterior hides a good man who’s ready to find “the one.” He’s determined to pull Shannon from her self-imposed solitude and win her heart.
As Shannon opens up in the face of Cole’s steady devotion, the passion between them ignites to blazing levels. But when Shannon’s past comes back to haunt her, her fears may destroy the trust Cole has built between them—and tear them apart for good…
