    1. We finally get a story about Craig, the sexy bartender that worked at Club 39 with Joss and Jo. I had almost forgotten about him but I'm so glad that S.Y. didn't. One of the reasons is that we get to go back to the beginning when Joss and Braden have just gotten together and even though this isn't their story, I just loved all the little nuances between the two. ~sigh~But Craig is quite yummytely a contender, however, he is pretty set in his manwhorish ways. In walks Rain and he doesn't even kno [...]

    2. 3.5 "Realist&Romantic" Stars!Hey there, guys!! Sorry I have disappeared these last days, it's because I have had a very bad cold and I wasn't feeling too well to check my PC! However, I am good now and (obviously) I started reading again!!I remembered that Samantha Young practically "ended" the Dublin Street series with the last book (which I loved so much) but still there is this new novella, so I went with it! Still not sure if there will be other stuff about this series but because I love [...]

    3. Rain has been frequenting Club 39, hoping to meet up with her sister, Darcy’s ex-boyfriend, and make him pay for the pain he put her through. She plans to seduce and then humiliate him, but Craig, the sexy bartender and his magnetic pull distracts her from her mission. Craig has never had the desire to be in a serious relationship, flirting and hooking up has satisfied his cravings up to this point. That’s until he lays eyes on Rain Alexander. She’s the epitome of a 1940s pinup girl, gorge [...]

    4. ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest reviewOn Dublin Street series has been one of my favorite series ever since Samantha Young introduced us to Joss, Braden, Ellie, Adam and the other cast of characters that makes up this amazing series. And in this recent addition to the series, One King's Way, Ms. Young once again charms her readers with this sweet, beautiful and touching romantic novella. If you are a big fan of the series like myself then you would probably remember the scene [...]

    5. ♥ CRAIG ♥PERFECT last novella from this amazing series.I was a little disappointed with the last 3 books if I remember correctly - but this one was really adorable again!The story takes place during the first 1.5 books in the series - Braden and Joss and Adam & Ellie are together, but not yet married.I love that both Craig and Rain are not related to them all and that it doesn't take place in the now-time - there would've been waaaay too much mention of all the offspring and whatnots ☺ [...]

    6.  Big fan of the Samantha Young's work, so naturally I couldn't wait to pick up One King's Way. Naturally I was nervous, this was a novella, but Young did an amazing job not only the way she used the novella to tell the story, but the length of it was perfect. It went smoothly and wrapped up perfectly without leaving me wanting more. I actually felt, satisfied.The story follows Craig the bartender who sets his sights on the beautiful Rain. Can we just talk about how cool Rain sounds with her 194 [...]

    7. ONE KING’S WAY is one of those instances where you need to know when to stop. After the last book in the series, that was supposed to be the end of the series. However, Samantha Young has released this novella featuring Craig, a character that we’ve been before. If I’m going to be totally honest with you, I didn’t like this novella. At all.Craig is portrayed as the flirt. As a bartender, he gets a lot of attention with the ladies. However, I found that Craig’s attempt at flirting seeme [...]

    8. 3.5 “Oh my holy orgasm” starsThis is a hot and romantic novella that is loosely a part of the On Dublin Street series. It is set between books 1 and 2 and features Craig, a bartender who works at Club 39 with Joss. And yes, Joss, Braden (*SWOON!*), Ellie and Adam all make brief, although very welcome cameos. But this novella can easily be read as a standalone.Craig is an out-and-proud manwhore - he enjoys women, flirts like mad while he’s working, but he never get involved. He’s not an a [...]

    9. One King's Way is a novella (#6.5) in Samantha Young's contemporary romance series titled: On Dublin Street. I didn't know Ms. Young would be adding to this series beyond the sixth and final installment so I was so happy to see this title pop up! One King's Way is Craig's story (remember him? the bartender Joss kissed at the bar way back when she was trying to make Braden jealous?). In this book, Craig is a one-night-stand kind of guy who surprisingly feels an instant connection with the heroine [...]

    10. Thank you to PENGUIN and Netgalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.We were first introduced to Craig in On Dublin Street, and I have to admit, his ‘Do you want to shag me in the men’s toilets?’ line had me falling for him hook, line, and sinker. Craig was such a flirty playboy that I couldn’t wait to see what kind of a woman reeled him in. Aside from On Dublin Street this series has been a miss for me, and I’m sad to say that this book was no exceptio [...]

    11. LOL. DNF. Is this actually real? (view spoiler)[It starts with him waking up in some lassies bed. Then he's at work talking about his coworkers and their friend. (Who are all heroines in the rest of the series.) Ellie is "very pretty and very sweet." Jo is "tall, built like a supermodel, and was probably technically the most beautiful woman he’d ever met, and ever slept with." And then he describes Joss"And Joss . . . Well, Joss was another matter entirely. She was sexy as hell. He didn’t kn [...]

    12. This is a stroll down memory lane as the timeline for this is between Until Fountain Bridge and Down London Road were Braden and Joss are dating and the girls still work at Club 39 with Craig.Rain comes to Club 39 looking for someone and Craig is behind the bar working, Craig sees Rain in the crowd and is instantly intrigued by her. They start talking Craig flirting but Rain does not fall for his charms she wants more than a one night stand with a guy. Can Craig break through her armour? What do [...]

    13. Creo que es un 2.5 más bueno que malo Me gustó que tuviera (POR FIN) los dos puntos de vista de los protagonistas.Pero la relación fue demasiado rápida y dramática para mi gusto. Entiendo que sea un relato corto pero estuvo solo pasable.Entretenida y sin más aportes. No entiendo porque la autora lo pone en otra línea temporal tampoco pero bueno al fin termine la serie y de lo que estoy segura es que mi favorito es y siempre será Nate ❤

    14. ***TEASER***“I know.” She looked sad. “But I got sick of waiting.”Aha! “Sick of waiting for what? Or who?”Rain’s eyes searched his. “Why are you so keen to know?”“Because I’m intrigued.”“But why?”He laughed. “Why is the sky fucking blue? You intrigue me and that’s all I know.”“There is a scientific reason for the sky being blue. Something about the elastic scattering of sunlight in the atmosphere or something…” she shrugged.Still amused, Craig shook his he [...]

    15. 3.5 Stars!A cute story and a trip down memory lane. This story is about Craig. Craig was the bartender who kissed Joss and made Braden jealous back when Joss and Jo worked as bartenders together. It wasn't a great story for me but it was cute enough and as a fan of this series I'm glad we got a bit more since I thought the series was done.

    16. Al ser un relato corto, la relación de ellos ha sido demasiado rápida, pero ha tenido momentos muy tiernos y esa declaración de amor es de las más bonitas que he leído.Aún así, no ha sido tan inolvidable como otros libros de la serie. Más bien pasable. El final ha sido muy bonito, pero lo que ha habido entre medias lo he visto demasiado dramático. Aunque me ha gustado que explicara por qué luego el personaje de Craig no ha vuelto a salir en los siguientes libros.

    17. so, 2 stars. am i the only one whos not feeling this book??? seriously though, i couldnt seem to connect with Craig and Rain. Their chemistry seems off to me??? idk but this book is a huge disappointment for me :(

    18. One of Young's BEST work to date! Even though this is a novella, it packed one hell of a punch with my emotions! ONE KING'S WAY is a story that will appeal to the hopeless romantic in everyone. It's rare to come across an author who is so consistent in her work. With each new release comes a brand new level of romance. Young's writing soothes the soul and mends the heart. It will break you down and piece you back together. It's heartbreaking and heartwarming. It's passionate with a dash of suspe [...]

    19. I can't believe I didn't like this. Honestly, not my cup of tea. Ms. Young has written much, much better than this.

    21. Unfortunately I didn't love this one as I have previous books in this series.While I couldn't wait to get Craig's story, I didn't love Rain as a character. While I understand that a lot of the issues she had was because of her past, I feel that she should have gone through some type of therapy to overcome these issues rather than just saying "this is who I am, accept me for who I am." Often times, I felt her to be really needy and I didn't agree with her reasonings - it frustrated me quite hones [...]

    22. DNF-I just can't. The heroine is annoying and in my opinion emotionally manipulative. I already went through that with books 4 & 5. Review to come.

    23. Craig Lanaghan is a flirt and a player—two things that come easily to him as a bartender at a local club. He’s also the exact type of guy for whom Rain Alexander has no place in her life. Rain has a pretty solid set of criteria for the man who she’ll take a chance on, and Craig doesn’t tick any of her boxes. When the two meet while she’s on a revenge mission to take down her sister’s sleazy ex-boyfriend, she immediately catches Craig’s interest. Craig has no interest in a lasting a [...]

    24. Review by Natasha GentileWhat can I about the Dublin series? I can say that I love it hard. I can say that these characters will forever be in my heart. This story though touched me deep, even though it’s a novella it was a tough one. Craig Lanaghan bartender extraordinaire, ok extrodainre is pushing it a little. He’s hot, he’s flirty, he’s sassy and he’s single. He doesn’t have time to date, when he isn ‘t at the bar he’s busy looking out for his mother and sisters. That is unti [...]

    25. 3.5 STARS While I definitely enjoyed this quick, steamy novella, and I definitely appreciate anytime one of my favorite authors gives me just a little bit more of a series I absolutely adore, this installment didn't quite measure up to the full length novels that came before it. I really loved Craig, a character who was obviously unappreciated and overlooked up to this point. The sexy noncommittal bartender drew me in right out of the gate. Rain, too, was quite captivating. The eccentric, overly [...]

    26. Supongo que alguien le preguntó a Samantha por el camarero juguetón del primer libro y pensó en escribirle una pequeña historia. No está mal, pero tampoco a la altura del resto.

    27. ADVERTIOS. Tiene insta-love, insta-sex. Trama muy cliché, narración monótona y personajes sosos. No escapa de todo lo anteriormente leído en sagas eróticas: última historia corta que es puro relleno.---------- Para los lectores de One king’s way: ¿Los insultos mentales de Rain a Craig (cuando lo estaba conociendo) no les recordó a Paquita la del barrio? Porque a mí sí. Y nunca he estado de acuerdo con la canción (solo si se va a usar en memes, ahí sí), me parece muy feminazi (con [...]
