Braden Carmichael never imagined he’d fall as hard and as fast as he did for Jocelyn Butler. He also could not have anticipated how difficult it would be to convince her to give in to love. But now that he has her, he’s never letting go. He’s got it all planned—the passionate proposal, the dream wedding, the sexy Hawaiian honeymoon—even the perfect family they’ll start.
After trying to flee from her painful past, Joss is finally allowing herself to embrace the future. But when things start moving faster than she anticipated, she finds herself panicking over something Braden can’t understand. After everything they’ve been through, Joss is sure that their love can survive even her worst fears. But, this time, she may push Braden too far—and risk losing everything all over again…
Ah, Braden and Joss, the couple who started my love of On Dublin Street, how I've missed these two! Castle Hill follows their proposal, marriage and honeymoon and their lives being turned upside down by some happy but unexpected news.
As I've reiterated many a time my love for this series and Joss and Braden are my top couple, the one who introduced me to the others and started my love for this series. I remember rooting for them big time in the first ODS book as soon as they were in that taxi together and I loved getting a glimpse into their newlywed lives.
I've actually ready this novella in the wrong place, it's supposed to follow books 3 and 4 in the series but me being me I read it last because I just wasn't ready to say goodbye to them just yet.
This book is short, but that doesn't let done on the amazingness. It's great to see what life throws at these two after marriage and I hated reading Joss feeling so lost and I also wanted to slap Braden silly but they both have their reasons and miscommunication is one of the reasons it all went so wrong. Samantha created an amazing couple when she created these characters and this continues in this book but there are moments I wanted to bash their heads together.
I forgot how much I loved reading these two, they're so much fun and sexy! Samantha has never let us down on the sex scene front, there's one scene in particular in this book that I loved and Joss and Braden are as hot as ever.
I'm glad I left this book as the last I read in the series, it took me back to my favourite couple and where it all began! I can't wait to see what new books Samantha has in store for the future.
