Before Jamaica Lane by Samantha Young
  

Lovereading view...

Recently arrived from America Olivia feels inadequate in her knowledge of the opposite sex and approaches a really good friend to teach her how to please a man in bed. Nate’s only true love died and he now flits through girls unable to commit, an ideal teacher. Naturally they fall in love, this is, after all, fiction, but it is the getting there, the hopelessness of their relationship and the well-written sex scenes that make this tale such fun. A really good read, romantic, sexy yet highly astute about relationships.

Synopsis

Before Jamaica Lane by Samantha Young

Before Jamaica Lane is the brilliant romantic follow-up to On Dublin Street and Down London Road from bestselling author Samantha Young. Edinburgh was going to be a fresh start for Olivia Holloway. Crippled by shyness around the opposite sex, Olivia nevertheless meets gorgeous postgraduate Nate Sawyer and decides it is time to push her fears aside. Before long, Olivia and Nate form a close friendship and she finds herself confessing her deepest secrets, and Nate, being her best friend, offers to teach her the art of flirting. As Olivia and Nate's friendship turns intense it soon blossoms into a passionate love affair. For the first time Olivia opens her heart but what she doesn't realise is that Nate has his own fears and just when she finds herself hopelessly falling for him, Nate's past returns to haunt him. Will Nate have the courage to confide in Olivia, or will he cut and run? And can Olivia face up to her own fears and keep him? Before Jamaica Lane charts the love trials of characters introduced in Samantha Young's bestselling prequel, On Dublin Street, and Down London Road.
