Ellie Carmichael has been in love with Adam Sutherland for as long as she can remember. What started as a childhood crush on the protective and best friend of her older brother bloomed into a full-blown infatuation over the years. Unfortunately, it also meant full-blown heartache, as Adam refused to fall for his mate's little sister. 

But it takes a crisis for Adam to realise he's wasted too much time denying his feelings for her. Unwilling to waste a second more, he decided to make Ellie his, no matter what the consequences. Now happily settled with the woman he's pined after for years, he's about to find out what their ten year courtship was like for her, through the journals she kept during their ups and many downs. And though Adam may have Ellie now, he has no idea how close he came to losing her...

Until Fountain Bridge is an On Dublin Street novella and tells the story of Ellie and Adam, Braden's little sister and best friends, relationship through a selection of flashbacks from Ellie's diaries. You see, Ellie has been crushing hard on Adam since she was a teenager and it took a catastrophic event in her life to finally get them together. Those of you who have the On Dublin Street will know what that is but for those who don't I won't spoil it. Ellie's entire crush on Adam is detailed in a few of Ellie's entries. Ellie opens them up hoping to give Joss an idea for her next book and with the help of Adam she takes a walk down memory lane.

I absolutely loved reading this novella. Back when I was reading On Dublin Street and Ellie and Adam landed up together I so wanted to know more of their history and this book does just this. You get an insight into how Ellie was feeling about Adam and after they've finished reading each entry how Adam felt.

These two really are great for each other and even though they took a long time to find their way to on another they are there now and, as I've read the other books in the series, I know they're still there going strong surrounding by their ever growing extended family and friends.

It was also interesting getting to see Adam reading these flashbacks. Seeing their life from Ellie's eyes and how close he came to losing her. I think he realised even more how long they had wasted avoiding their feelings for each other and how much they love one another now.
