My Rating: 5/5 Stars
I am so sad that this series has come to an end, but happy that it got the perfect ending that it deserved.
Samantha Young managed to captivate me for years with her books and “Moonlight on Nightingale Way” didn’t disappoint in the least. When I first read about the hero of this story, I was kind of guarded, because I wasn’t familiar with Logan much. I only knew the main idea, that he was Shannon’s brother, the one that ended up in jail after beating the man that hurt and nearly raped her. We could see the strong connection they had, the love they felt for each other and I knew that Logan’s story deserved to be more developed.
Now we got the chance to read about it, and of course, the story was amazing.
Logan is out of jail and tries to re-balance his life, although the memories and hard times spent in prison still hunt him. We see a very fragile and confused hero, trying to get his old life back, but he is kind of choosing the wrong path now, because in this “confusion” , he parties and sleeps with a lot of women just to forget. We all know that this is only a way to keep lying to himself and forgetting everything that happened 2 years ago.
Grace, our lovely heroine, is his next door neighbor and really mad about not getting any sleep because of Logan and his ongoing parties. She is a very up front and determined girl, a tough cookie to crack for our party friend here. They begin a cat and mouse relationship, but you can feel the attraction and the good kind of tension between them.
When something unexpected happens, Logan and Grace are caught together in a strange situation that changes them and brings them closer. Due to this change, Logan becomes more responsible, and I definitely felt in love with him. He showed another side of him, caring, kind and noble. He truly became the person he was 2 years ago, the one that sacrificed his freedom for the safety of his sister. Grace was the perfect balance for him, his perfect match that was right in front of him, but as we are accustomed to, heroes catch up very slowly and kill our nerves and patience in the process.
I enjoyed the originality of the story, the twist element that was introduce in the book and it was very surprising and fun to read. I like second chances books and this one was perfectly created for us to realize that people deserve it, by falling in love again or having a surprising presence in their lives that can guide them to rediscovery and forgiveness.
Logan story was mainly about this, about forgiving himself for what happened, although he was only protecting his sister. In his complicated manner, having Grace by his side showed him that he deserves to be loved again, despite this terrible background.
Of course, Sam’s trademark passionate scenes were there, creating the perfect love story with everything on top: drama, lust, humor and domestic elements that I’ve enjoyed dearly.
A bonus was the epilogue, you will love it and enjoy every page from it.
Love the Dublin Street Series and I am terribly sorry that it ended, but that a way to go it was:)
