Review: Castle Hill ( On Dublin Street #2.5 ) by

Castle Hill by Samantha Young

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…




It felt so good to be able to catch up with Braden Carmichael. The man who single-handedly made me love On Dublin Street so much. Castle Hill gaves us their extended HEA, the wedding veils, the honeymoon and some angst filled married couple drama and another swoony ending.

Joss had come a long way but she still tends to sabotage her own happiness. Joss acting up was understandable because she is who she is. Once again Joss is afraid of losing everything she hold dear.

What came as a surprise was Braden's reaction this time. It seems like Mr. Perfect finally showed some flaws. I thought it was good, I want to see how he crack. Last time, no matter how Joss pushed him away, he was adamant and persistent and always managed to win her. But now, he finally was pushed over the edge and Joss might just have a hard time bringing her husband around.

Despite the marriage issue and miscommunication, I very much enjoyed this little novella and glad to see how far Joss and Braden had come since they first met in a taxi three years ago.

Life isn’t perfect, we aren’t perfect, but I’m telling you now, Jocelyn, we’re indestructible.

Rating 4/5
