The story of Slater brother Alec (Escort for hire, lover not a fighter, 2nd oldest Slater brother) and Keela (BBF to Aideen, a woman scorned). From the onset of meeting each other, Keela hates Alec and Alec enjoys the attention from Keela. Keela must attend her cousin's wedding and she does not want to attend alone. She asks her nemesis, Alec, to escort her and pretend to be her boyfriend for the wedding. The more time they spend together prior to the wedding, they start becoming attracted to each other. Keela denies it, Alec wants her to accept it.
Initially, during the earlier parts of the book, I found the dialogue between Alec and Keela so funny. They would argue over the smallest things. However, after a while, it became very annoying and boring. Keela had a very feisty personality, in fact, she reminded me so much of Bronagh. She yelled, hit, cussed, etc. She was a real hellcat, so to speak. I thought Alec was very sweet and sexy. When Keela and him finally hooked up, it was hot!!! He was the king of the dirty talking..."I'm going to f*uck you like I hate you"...OMG!!! Scorching hot!!
All of the Slater brothers were included in the book, including Bronagh and Branna. There were some other secondary characters from "Dominic", who brought some much needed drama to the wedding and some of Keela's family members. Overall, I'm mixed about this book. I did not hate it and I did not love it. I'm indifferent.
Why Not 5 Stars?
Boring. Alec and Keela hooked up at the 64% mark. Up until then, it was a bunch of yelling, screaming, punching and sarcasm. I enjoyed it at first, but at some point, it became annoying and boring. I wanted something to happen. In fact, I put this book down several times, because the story dragged.
Bronagh, Branna, Keela and Aideen all have the same personality! All four women: screaming, screeching, punching, cursing, being bitchy to everyone...I'm over it! While I really enjoyed Bronagh and Dominic's interaction in book one, "Dominic", I do not want to read the same heroine in each book. Bronagh/Dominic, Branna/Ryder, Keela/Alec, Aideen/Kane. All four of these women are loud, obnoxious and brash. While I'm OK with this type of heroine, they should be different...not Bronagh renamed Keela and Branna and Aideen and Alannah. Boring.
The Wedding - everything that went down was off. 'The thing' that Alec did was uncool and unnecessary. I'm sure this soured a lot of readers on him and this book. And 'the thing', was not hot and sexy either. I love 'the thing' just as much as the next person, but this was just wrong and I felt nothing but disgust and heartache. It just did not fit his personality at all. It was off. After 'the thing', I thought Keela's reaction was off when she was talking to her uncle. The action drama at the end, was off. Showing up to rescue someone with no guns or weapons. Really? All of the jokes and sarcasm during the incident, was off. The scene with getting pulled over by the police, what purpose did that serve? It was off.
Edit, Edit, Edit - While the editing was better than "Bronagh", lots of mistakes still stood out in this book. I noticed sometimes when Alec was speaking, he was using 'me' instead of 'my'. Keela was using 'my' instead of 'me'. It makes it very difficult to read.
Plea: I need some variation in the female main characters. Screeching, screaming, stomping, fighting is cute for an 18 year old, but very ugly and immature as they get older.
When I started skimming in the first 2 chapters I knew it was bad...when it took more than half the book for me to like Keela I knew I was screwed...
I understand being stand offish and closed of because of past issues but keela was down right mean to the point of always being violent. Poor Alec could've claimed abuse with how many times she hit or raised her hand to him.
Sadly, Keela is what killed this book for me.
Once again a Slater brother finds his way to a sarcastic mouthed Irish girl. They try to keep it friendly but their chemistry is off the charts. They argue and fight but deep down they want each other.
Keela doesn't know about her family's business. She also learns about Slaters past. The danger of both is brought to light and she is torn apart. Alec feels he needs to protect his family and the only way was to hurt Keela.
For two people who seem to be open and honest no matter what, I don't like that they immediately lie and hurt each other. The truth comes out in the end as always.
I loved the part when Nico explained the Man bible to Alec. My husband and I laughed so hard.
This series is bringing many smiles to my face.
The relationship didn't seem to connect or become anything other than bickering until almost halfway into the story. Its all laughs until I realized they were really serious. Then the comments just seemed mean and unnecessary. So I had to take of points for hanging on to the fighting longer instead of showing us the real chemistry.
Sorry no, nah, and HELL no. (No Spoilers - so you know what i'm talking about if you read the book). I was all good with him and what he liked up until THAT! It was unforgivable to me and I think just for that I had to take the star.
Still love the family and how they are there for each other. That didn't change! & I also actually liked Keela in the end....I would say the beginning but the bickering kind of became really childish...but any who, I like her in the end and all her "coming to peace moments".
So yes to the "Slater Bro Fan Club from Book 1" I would say give this a read (note: some scenes not for the faint at heart), The brother are still the brothers and I look forward to seeing what's up next in their lives.
Writing style is easy to read, editing okay, formatting in keeping with the series and chapter headings.
I ending up liking Alec's character much more than I thought I would. Still not sold on Casey's female protagonists though.
The most intriguing character of the series is up next, Kane. I'm already worried about if flu like symptoms.
