An exclusive novella featuring Ellie and Adam, much loved characters from On Dublin Street and Down London Road
Ellie Carmichael has been in love with Adam Sutherland for as long as she can remember. What started as a childhood crush on the protective and best friend of her older brother bloomed into full-blown infatuation over the years. Unfortunately, it also meant full-blown heartache, as Adam refused to fall for his mate's little sister.
But it takes a crisis for Adam to realize he's wasted too much time denying his feelings for her. Unwilling to waste a second more, he decided to make Ellie his, no matter what the consequences. Now happily settled with the woman he's pined after for years, he's about to find out what their ten year courtship was like for her, through the journals she kept during their ups and many downs. And though Adam may have Ellie now, he has no idea how close he came to losing her . . .
Right from the moment I started On Dublin Street I fell in love with Samantha Young's writing and storytelling. One of my favourite characters in On Dublin Street was Ellie and so when I heard Samantha was publishing a short story that would tell Ellie and Adam's story I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.
Ellie has been in love with her brothers best friend for as long as she can remember. She never thought that he could love her back. But now he does. As Ellie and Adam sit down with her many diaries they revisit their past and all the time they could have been together... and how Adam could have lost Ellie forever.
One thing I loved about this novella was the incredibly clever way Samantha wrote this. When I sat down to read it I was prepared to be going back in time before the time that On Dublin Street is set... and we do in a way. I wasn't prepared to be faced with happy Ellie and Adam present day living through their past through Ellie's diaries that she has wrote. I really loved how we got all of these events through Ellie's point of view but at the end of each chapter we got how it also affected Adam. It was so superbly and cleaverly written.
Ellie and Adam's story is so cute and amazing. I am so happy that Samantha wrote this and we got to see their story both pre and post On Dublin Street. Until Fountain Bridge is an amazing installment in the series and is a must read for any fan of Samantha Young.
