Shannon MacLeod has always gone for the wrong type of man. After she drifted from one toxic relationship to the next, her last boyfriend gave her a wakeup call in the worst possible way. With her world shattered, she’s sworn off men—especially those of the bad-boy variety.

Cole Walker is exactly the sort that Shannon wants to avoid—gorgeous, tattooed, charming, and cocky. But his rough exterior hides a good man who’s ready to find “the one.” He’s determined to pull Shannon from her self-imposed solitude and win her heart.

As Shannon opens up in the face of Cole’s steady devotion, the passion between them ignites to blazing levels. But when Shannon’s past comes back to haunt her, her fears may destroy the trust Cole has built between them—and tear them apart for good…

I enjoyed Cole Walker as well as his co-workers and friends too. Shannon, however, was a harder sell for me. She's different than the other female MCs in this series, and while I understood her reasons for behaving the way she did, I didn't like them. Rae, in all her unapologetic, potty mouthed glory was my favorite character! I laughed out loud on more than one occasion while reading/listening to her parts. Fans of this series will enjoy seeing Cole all grown up and the cameos from previous couples was fun. I also enjoyed how everything came full circle at the end. 

While this can be read as a stand alone, it's probably wise to read the books in order, lest you risk spoiling the other story lines. 

Echoes of Scotland Street makes a great addition to the On Dublin Street Series!

Favorite Quote:
“As the old car took me away from Scotland Street amid his incessant chatter, I felt like fate had just handed me two cups and I’d stupidly drunk from the wrong one.”

Elle Newlands does a fantastic job of bringing these characters and their accents to life!
