He knows she has issues and is willing to work with her and gain her trust. I thought Cole was fabulous in the other books Total package here. When he said this- I melted. There were a few moments that she irked me, but I could completely see where she was coming from and why she was the way she was. On Dublin Street is a favorite of mine.
That book is incredible. Most of the others in this series have been fantastic as well. They all have one thing in common. The men in these stories are incredible.
They are all so romantic, alpha, charismatic, cocky, sexy and loyal. Samantha Young hands down writes the best heroes. I just love all these men. Braden, Nate and Cole especially. My eyes instantly collided with those of a boy. He stood on the stoop of the house next door, a few steps farther up than me, and he was regarding me with something akin to shock.
As I took him in, I felt my heart rate start to pick up.
His strawberry blond hair was slightly too long and disheveled, but he worked it because. I sucked in a breath, suddenly feeling a flutter of nerves in my stomach. The boy was utterly gorgeous.
As he stepped slowly down the stoop, the startlingly light green color of his eyes became clearer. When our eye contact finally broke, it was only because he was distracted by my hair. Cole meets Shannon when they are fifteen years old and there is an immediate connection. Unfortunately, she has a boyfriend and doesn't even live in the same town. Fast forward nine years and Shannon moves to Edinburgh and gets a job as a receptionist at a tattoo parlor. You'll never guess who her boss is.
I feel like I've been waiting for Cole's book forever , so I was thrilled that it was finally out. I was a bit disappointed that the story wasn't from his POV and we didn't even get a chapter.. I was a bit disappointed that the story wasn't from his POV and we didn't even get a chapter But Cole is a-mazing, everything you could want from a guy and more.
That doesn't mean he is perfect but more on that later. I did like Shannon, "the wee fairy", even though she's been screwed over. Not only by past boyfriends but by her family as well. She has some lessons to learn and they are doozies. Things get really steamy with these two but maybe it's me?
I still really enjoyed it. There's some fun characters working at the tattoo shop. I really enjoyed Rae, who becomes Shannon's roommate. I loved how she would just say what's on her mind and how Shannon didn't back down. Simon and his boyfriend, Tony, were really sweet. And Stu was quite the character.
But mostly, I loved reconnecting with all the family we've met in the prior books. I love how supportive they are no matter what. And it was great reading about what's going on in their lives.
Of course, there's lots of emotional drama. I felt both Cole and Shannon were a bit over the top with the first situation. And with the second, I was surprised at how it seemed that Cole jumped the gun but it made for some good drama. I loved how things worked out. Shannon really surprised me with her "go big" but I loved what Cole did even more.
The epilogue sets things up for the next book which is about Shannon's brother, Logan. I'm predicting it's going to be a good one! You have magical fucking hair!

Apr 20, Ramona rated it it was amazing Shelves: Let me tell you a story about a boy.. Samantha Young does it again in an impressive way. Echoes of Scotland Street is my favorite book from the series, in which you can read the story of Cole and Shannon. Cole is Jo's brother from the second book, all grown up and ready to steal out hearts permanently.
Shannon is newly introduced, but as soon as you'll meet her you will realize how good she is for Cole. First thing to keep Let me tell you a story about a boy..
First thing to keep in mind while reading this book: When you see a hot guy with tattoos, rocking a wonderful smile and looking at you with piercing eyes, you think he is a player!! Cole is everything of those above minus the player part. Having had a though childhood, abused my his mother and raised practically by his big sister, he is now a grown up who is trying to figure things out. Discovering his passion for tattoos thanks to Cam book 2 , he takes on a hob at a tattoo parlor and there he meets Shannon.
Well, they already know each other but I will let you explore that on your own. As in all the books when you have a gorgeous guy and a beautiful girl, sparks fly, but Shannon is not letting her attraction to Cole get ahead of her. She is hurt by the bad choices made in relationships in the past and won't allow anybody to physically or emotional hurt her anymore. From this point on, a truly powerful struggle begins, where Cole has to prove Shannon that love is worth the risk although life wasn't always gentle with you.
Cole in my opinion is the best male character from all the books. You can clearly see him evolve from the shy boy presented in the second book to the man he is today. Jo is the main reason he managed to get away from the darkness in which he could have ended because of his mother. He grown up so well, focusing on his talent, having an objective in life that guided him.
His love life wasn't so lucky, but everything settles down when he sees Shannon. Despite the player look, he believes in true love, in loyalty and in treating women well. Cam and Jo where the perfect example for him in terms of relationships and family, giving him a goal to achieve. Shannon on the other side doesn't believe in love any more because of the abused she suffered in past relationships. I understand her reluctance in approaching someone, and nevertheless a person that reminds you of a certain type of guy.
I love the way Cole managed to break her barriers and show her what true love can reached once you let it in. I liked that Samantha introduces a certain theme in the book- physical abuse. A women should never go through what Shannon went through. This is a lesson to learn for all girls and women out there who tolerate violence.
Everybody deserves tenderness and love no matter the mistakes they make and second chances have to be taken in order to live a happy life. Echoes of Scotland Street present us our favorite characters from the past books, we get to see them all-together in the wonderful unity they created.
Their bond is even stronger than before and I liked the way they embraced Shannon as their own, without judging or asking questions.
Everything is so natural with them that you kind of wish you have such friends in real life to stand by you and accepting your true colors. One of my favorite parts was the ending because I have never read one such as that before. It was unique and exciting. I love the book and recommend all the series with an open heart!
For more reviews please check https: Oct 08, Rachel Reads Ravenously rated it it was amazing Shelves: Cole Walker. Samantha Young is the one author where I don't care about the nitty gritty details, I love everything this woman writes and will most likely always give her books 5 stars.
Echoes of Scotland Street is about Shannon, a girl who has been dating all of the wrong men and is tired of choosing the bad boys. After an extremely bad breakup that led to even more horrible things, Shannon finds herself moving from Glasgow to Edinbur 5 stars!
After an extremely bad breakup that led to even more horrible things, Shannon finds herself moving from Glasgow to Edinburgh where she lands a job as a receptionist at INKarnate, the most regarded tattoo shop in Scotland. There she meets her new manager Cole Walker, a man she met briefly before when they were teenagers.
Cole freaking Walker. All grown-up. And he was my new manager. I was so screwed. It isn't until later that she realizes that Cole Walker is the furthest thing from a bad boy. I really loved this addition to the On Dublin Street series. Hannah and Marco had a great story but I felt there was so much unnecessary drama in that one, that I was worried it would be in this one.
Yes there is drama, but I felt it fit the story well based on the lives of the characters Young wrote. I loved her journey to find herself again, and Cole was the perfect man to help her. Shannon had lost so much of herself, that every time Cole broke down a wall it was beautiful to watch. Beautifully written and well done hide spoiler ] Cole. Mhmmm Cole. Can we get more American men like him? I'm beginning to think that I need to move to Scotland to find a man like that well twist my arm on that.
When Cole finally learns about all of the shit that her previous boyfriends put her through, he's understanding and kind. One being near the end I felt Cole could have been a bit more understanding about the pickle Shannon was in. The second thing: The covers on these books were fine until book 4 and now they're just getting worse!
We all judge books by their covers, it's a given, so can we please change this one to a better cover so people will be more willing to read it? View all 51 comments. Jul 14, Beverly rated it it was amazing.
Despite both of them being able to feel this connection, neither one of them knows what to do about it. So they both go on with their lives. Shannon gets in the car with her boyfriend, Cole leaves his friends house, and as far as they are both concerned they will never see each other again.
Fast forward nine years and fate has other plans for them. Shannon is running…again. Simply put 4. Simply put Shannon is constantly running from one bad relationship to the next. So when she sees an ad for a receptionist at a tattoo parlor she applies for the job.
A tattoo parlor is a Mecca for bad guys, this is like where they come to hangout, pay their respect, look for their next victim. Shannon knows this goes against her plan , but so does being homeless, so when she is offered the job she accepts it. Regardless she knows what her problem is and she will no longer be falling victim to her greatest weakness: That is until she sees the boy, now a man, she met years ago.
Hellbent on not trusting anyone, Shannon decides she can be friends with Cole, but that will be the extent of their relationship. It will take a lot to convince Shannon to go against her better judgement and trust Cole, and even if she can get there will he still be interested?
I loved seeing Cole grown up. He has always been a favorite of mine and I loved the kind of man he grew into - a perfect combination of the Dublin Street men: I loved the dynamic between Shannon and Cole, even when they were fighting it was endearing. I highly recommend this story. View all 32 comments. He is the only reason I rounded up to three stars. Cole is the perfect combination of sweetheart and alpha caveman.
I loved every thing about him. If this book was in his perspective, I might have liked it. That brings me to what I didn't like. It was like being in the head of an immature, judgmental teenager. I had heard that she could be annoying, so I was prepared for that. What I wasn't prepared for, was h 3 stars There was one thing I liked about this book and that was Cole.
What I wasn't prepared for, was her being mean to Cole, and behaving like a complete bitch to him for half of the book. He did nothing , absolutely nothing to her to deserve the way she treated him.
She took one look at him, and decided that because he's good looking and has tattoos, he must be a "bad boy". Uum, What? It made no sense. I know, I know, I was supposed to feel bad for her and understand this behavior stems from her horrible past relationships. Well, it just felt over the top and contrived. Cole had a rough upbringing , but he didn't behave like a whiny bitch!
I also felt like I was constantly being told how to feel about her past or her behavior, instead of it coming across naturally. This is the problem with liking one character so much more than the other one.
I just wasn't convinced that she deserved him. I mean, this is Cole. Readers of this series have loved him since book 2. I actually felt protective of him. Oh, brother. I just really never felt the connection between the couple like I did in previous books.
I skipped book 4 of the series based on reviews, but out of the 4 I've read, this is my least favorite. I did love the Braden appearances, he will always be my number one caveman. Thanks for the br Ami, loved the spoilers: View all 43 comments.
Oct 08, Geri Reads rated it liked it. This is going to be one of those "I like it but Nevertheless, it must be done. I liked this book. I really did. I read it straight through. It was short and unputdownable. I've read all books in this series except Down London Road, and frankly, I just couldn't connect with this one. Shannon was a cool character but I couldn't connect with her 3.
Shannon was a cool character but I couldn't connect with her. That's bad news considering she's the narrator of the story. One of the reason why I just couldn't connect was I don't know her character at all. She was introduced abruptly. We had a glimpse of her in one of the epilogues but that's about it. All of the narrators for this series so far had been introduced to readers prior to their books.
Shannon just came out of the blue really. And her indecisiveness and issues became tedious to read and I just couldn't get myself to care. Cole -- gosh, I have been waiting for his book and was disappointed this wasn't in his POV. He's hot, for sure, but And the chemistry between Cole and Shannon wasn't there either. Still, there are a lot of things to like about this book.
I loved the cameos of previous characters. They're there but they're not as intrusive as compared with Fall From India Place. View all 33 comments.
Jun 02, Natasha is a Book Junkie rated it it was amazing Shelves: Two characters oh-so easy to love, an emotional storyline that kept me glued to my seat for hours on end, literally gasping for the next page—this is a book I adored and could not walk away from even days after I first finished it, needing to re-read parts of it over and over again. I have never not loved a Samantha Young book, but this one just might be my new favourite. Every single relationship that she has been in has left a bad taste in her mouth, her last one leaving her battered both physically as well as emotionally.
Moving to a new town might seem like the only way to escape her painful past, but she soon realises that no matter where she goes, her memories would inevitably follow. And that her own prejudices could cost her the affections of the best person she has ever met.
Having loved someone who constantly belittled her, made her believe she was talentless and stupid, and unworthy of someone like him, has not only damaged her self-esteem and confidence, but it also made her distrustful of her own ability to judge a person correctly and not to make the same mistakes again.
