Review: Dominic (Slate Brothers #1)

Dominic (Slater Brothers#1) by L.A. Casey

Publisher: L.A. Casey; 2014
317 pages, paperback
Source: Purchased through Amazon

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
After a car accident killed her parents when she was a child, Bronagh Murphy chose to box herself off from people in an effort to keep herself from future hurt. If she doesn't befriend people, talk to them or acknowledge them in any way they leave her alone just like she wants.

When Dominic enters her life, ignoring him is all she has to do to get his attention. Dominic is used to attention, and when he and his brothers move to Dublin, Ireland for family business, he gets nothing but attention. Attention from everyone except the beautiful brunette with a sharp tongue. 

Dominic wants Bronagh and the only way he can get her, is by dragging her from the boxed off corner she has herself trapped in the only way he knows force. 

Dominic wants her, and what Dominic wants, Dominic gets.

My Review:
This book made me cry, mad and laugh. Even though I thought Dominic was a total prick no pun intended he had a sweet soft side but he was one hell of cocky bastard. Bronagh was a fire cracker she was made for Dominic I reckon.

Anyway I'll try and do this book more justice then above.

Dominic is more than a story about love and loss, but also a story about trust and letting go.

Bronagh lost her parents when she was nine, leaving her sister Branna as her guardian and the only person she loves and trusts. At 18, Bronagh has built a barrier around herself and her heart that no one has been able to break through. At least until Dominic, an American prick, comes into this spunky Isrish lass's life and very literally turns her world on its heels. Under Dominic's attentive eye and constant teasing, Bronagh is no longer invisible to her fellow classmates and even finds herself making friends.

They share a love/hate relationship that left me smiling and laughing like a moron. I can't tell you how many times Dominic got clocked in the head, but I enjoyed every single hit, smack and verbal combat between Bronagh and Dominic. Just when Bronagh readies herself to open her heart to this beautiful but arrogant SOB, life throws yet another curve ball her way. A secret Dominic and the other Slate brothers are hiding that explains what brought them to Ireland in the first place.

My Rating:
