Review: It was so cool to read about Ellie and Adams story that has only been hinted at in the first book of the on Dublin Street series! Ellie is just the cutest but hearing about her and Adam’s story, even though it was filled with a bit of heartbreak. The best part was just finally knowing about all the things that happened between them over the years that Ellie was in love with Adam.
It was really neat how Samantha Young wrote out this Novella. With Ellie going through her old dairies for Joss and giving Adam different passages to read. Along with Adam talking about the passages from the past and giving his point of view at that those time too.
4 out of 5 stars.
111 pages. E-book. Also can be found in paperback with Before Jamaica Lane.

Summary: Ellie Carmichael had a crush on Adam Sutherland, her brother, Braden’s, best friend, for years, and although Adam treated her with proprietary concern he made it clear he thought of her only as a little sister.
Over the years, as Ellie’s crush develops into love, her romantic idealism makes it difficult for her to move on. To make matters worse, as she’s gotten older, Adam’s attitude has changed toward her. His affection for her is now joined by attraction, but his loyalty to Braden, and his fear of losing the only family he has, stops him from claiming Ellie the way she wishes he would.
But one night his attraction is put to the test, and as much as Adam would like things to remain the same everything changes between them in a simple brush of the lips.
Soon lust, love, jealousy and heartbreak combine to force change upon their relationship… and Adam discovers the hard way that life is too damn short to spend it on regret.
