I seriously love this series!! I’ve been looking forward to Cole’s story since he was first introduced in the series. I was so excited to start Echoes of Scotland Street and it didn’t disappoint. I really enjoyed Cole and Shannon’s story. It wasn’t drama filled and there was no instant love, those are two things that can really bug me in a book. Plus all of the old favorites from the previous books were back, which made me even happier.
The story is told from the point of view of Shannon MacLeod. Shannon has just moved to Edinburgh to get away from her family and a very bad relationship. She might have gotten away from those things, but she still carries the baggage around from them. She starts a new job as a receptionist at INKarnate where she meets the extremely hot and dreamy Cole. She very attracted to him, but knows she needs to stay away. To Shannon he screams bad boy and that is the last kind of guy she needs to be around again. Cole the charmer, instantly starts flirting with her. Shannon does everything she can think of to keep Cole away from her, eventually it works when words are exchanged that cut pretty deep. It takes some convincing by those who know Cole best to get Shannon to open her eyes to the man Cole really is.
Cole and Shannon both have past issues that they bring with them in their relationship, but what I love the most is that they help each other work through those issues. Then there is the chemistry and heat between these two and it was HOT!!! They couldn’t keep their hands off each other.
As I said before the characters from the previous books are back and I was so happy to see what has happened with each couple. To see how each relationship has grown and how their families have too. We are also introduced to a new character, Logan. Logan is Shannon’s older brother and has gone through a lot in his life already. I’m very much looking forward to his story and the continuing story of the group of friends/family from on Dublin Street.
