(On Dublin Street #6.5)
by Samantha Young
The New York Times bestselling author of On Dublin Street returns to the bar where it all began with Braden and Joss for a white-hot new novella full of passion and drama.
When he’s not working at the club, Craig Lanaghan looks out for his mother and little sisters. So when it comes to women, all he wants is a good time. But once Rain Alexander walks into his life, there’s no denying that this woman could be worth much more than a one-night stand….
Rain’s lifelong regret is having left her sister Darcy alone years ago with a guardian who turned out to be abusive. So when Darcy’s boyfriend publicly humiliates her in a cruel way, Rain’s overprotective instincts kick in and she follows him to Club 39—where she meets a guy who just might be her perfect match.
The chemistry between Rain and Craig is explosive, but Rain is out for revenge, and refuses to be sidetracked by flirtation. As things between them heat up, she’ll have to make a heartbreaking choice between giving in to the man of her dreams or putting her sister’s happiness first….
My Thoughts: What fun to take a trip down memory lane back to where On Dublin Street began. In One King's Way, we find ourselves back in Club 39 where Joss and Braden began their romance, which was also the place Joss tended bar alongside Jo and Craig. One King's Way is Craig and Rain's story. We originally met Craig in On Dublin Street, while Rain is new to the series. Craig is the hot bar tender, who is quite the hottie, but also a bit of a man-whore. There is no shortage of women vying for his attention and he rarely if ever sees them more than once. Rain is a romantic at heart, she's beautiful, and finds herself in Club 39 watching and waiting for her sister's ex, so she can put her plan for revenge for what he did to her sister into action. The chemistry between Craig ad Rain is almost tangible from the get-go, and Craig finds himself wanting this woman in ways he has never wanted or cared for another woman before. Rain finds herself falling hard for Craig as well, but Mr. Playboy has a lot to learn about relationships and changing his flirty ways. Their romance is sweet, sexy, hot, passionate, and despite this being a novella, Samantha Young has packed quite a bit of really good stuff that her readers will definitely enjoy inside these pages. This is a great addition to the On Dublin Street Family and is something that fans of the series will enjoy.
