Publisher's Summary

Keela Daley is the black sheep of her family. She has always come second to her younger cousin Micah. Even in the eyes of her mother, Micah shone bright, and Keela faded to black. Now, in adulthood, Micah is a bride to be, and the spotlight is solely on her. Keela is a low priority...or so she thinks.

Alec Slater is a bachelor, never one to bed the same woman, or man, twice. He is a free agent who does what he pleases and answers to no one - that is until a fiery Irish redhead with a temper to match her hair color knocks him on his arse. Literally.

She hates to admit it, but Keela needs a favor from the cocky Slater brother - a huge favor. She needs him not only to escort her to Micah's wedding but also to pose as her boyfriend. Alec agrees to help Keela but has certain conditions for her to abide by. He wants her body and plans to have it before anyone can say "I do".

What he doesn't plan on is losing his heart as well as the possibility of losing his family when someone from his past threatens his future.

Alec owns Keela, and what Alec owns, Alec keeps.

Narrator’s male voices are nonexistent

The story wasn’t so bad. I like the series ok but the narrator doesn’t even attempt to do a male voice so it feels like all the characters are female. The Irish accent is ok but again no distinction between character voices so at times it’s difficult to tell which character is speaking.

A Very good series

This is a very good series. I am not completed sold on the narrator. I also wish that there was a bit more character variation as well. All of the ladies are written to be very shrewish.

don't waste your time

omg....as much as I like a strong female who can hold her own...Keili is just sooooo negative and so argumentative 99% of this entire book. I couldn't even stand to finish as. The best part of the book was when she was not narrating. She even spoiled the sex sceen which I was looking forward to since Alec was hyped up from the other books about being an escort. Too bad...this book would have been soooo cute if it was for Keili's poor attitude from start to finish!

Pretty good but

I really like the series, but it seems the story struggles between teenage behavior and adult behavior. It has witty humor and great comebacks, the characters are pretty well developed, but again I’m struggling with it, because of the immature behavior versus adult behavior. I know 20 somethings can be somewhat this way, but the characters have all gone through way too much, in my opinion, to act like teenagers so I think they should be playful, but more on the mature side. Just my thoughts. The narrator does an amazing job going back and forth between different accents and acts out the characters really well. It is difficult to distinguish between characters and the male voices should be deeper. The male voices sound female.

Was this book edited?

Could have been a nice book I suppose, but the amount of detail was cumbersome. I don’t need a ten minute description of getting ready to go out... saying: I got dressed and put on makeup is enough. where was the editor??
The characters were decent, slightly annoying. The story line farfetched but not bad, and the book could have been enjoyable if it lost a third of the length.

This crazy family

The narrator does okay... it still bothers me when she’s talking for the male part that it’s not even in a low tone. I just picture this gorgeous hunk of a man and such a feminine voice.

This takes off start from nico and b’s stories. More characters are introduced, some plot thickens, and old characters playing a new refreshing role. I liked this one. Alec is sweet and unique and Keela brings her own flare to the picture.

Same issues as the first book

The same issues seems to be occurring in all of the books. After reading the reviews for Kane and Ryder’s books I’m not the only person that has these concerns. Can one of the heroines actually be normal and not have temper tantrums like a 5 year old??!! You can have a strong female heroine without her being a raging B. Also the narration is annoying as the strong alpha males are given feminine voices. Also I’m not sure if I could have forgiven Alec for what he did. Maybe it’s just me but for her to forgive him that quickly without him doing some major groveling and her solution to keep him away... the whole thing was a little irritating. Because of these issues I’m going to skip the rest of the books and start Dameon’s book only because I’m curious on how he makes up with Lana.

Playboy to Hero

When you meet a sassy lassy from Ireland that knocks you on your ass at every turn. Never in a million years would you believe that your family is in the middle of the underworld but as the saying goes you can't pick your family

Don't do it

I read the book and I have no idea what possessed me to listen to the audio. the main female characters is quite simply rude and unnecessarily aggressive . The kind of rude no person can overlook. If the character was real she would be suitably and understandably friendless let alone anything else.

There is not enough Slater brother interaction to make this worth it. Skip to the next you won't be missing

Just Dreadful!! DO NOT WASTE TIME OR MONEY ON THIS TRULY RIDICULOUS OFFERING!

Decided to listen to The Slater Brothers books in order after listening toDominic first. Am just exhausted by this one😮‍💨 Again, there are too many irrelevant details, why? It’s narrated by a woman but when she does the man, she does sound more feminine, just as another reviewer pointed out. The girl/very antagonistic immature woman, just got more annoying as the very poor story went on. I just became more and more disinterested. I usually listen to audiobooks so I can do other things at the same time, like mucking out my horses etc but I found myself just tuning out as it was just so boring. The sex scenes were ridiculously tedious and a station announcement is more sexy and believable.
The female lead, who I can’t even remember her name now (tuned out) is so confrontational, that I would have punched her and I’m not a violent person. She is just so annoying and threatens violence at every turn when arguing with Alec. She even threatened to ‘cut’ him at one point. She reminds me of foul mouthed Father Jack from Father Ted. Even dropping the C bomb at will. I am actually writing this review whilst listening and having just tuned back in, they are doing a particularly tedious and unrealistic sex scene. Just the pits!!! It’s truly awful and laughably bad 😂
Im up to chapter 28 I think, lost track and losing the will to live about now, hence doing the review as I just can’t finish it. They have zero chemistry. I’ve just remembered at one point, whilst attending a wedding in the Bahamas, they went to the beach. The girl thought she saw a shark fin in the surf mid way through a sexy embrace. Alec dropped her like a hot potato in the water and swam for his life to shore, leaving her behind. Not a real man or even mate if they abandon you. If that had happened to me, the guy would be well and truly dumped. She just was in a bit of a mood with him and then forgot about it. COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS. UNBELIEVABLE AND NOT FUNNY. I CANNOT GO ON READING THIS UTTER DRIVEL. And guess what….there are about 5 brothers and they and the girlfriends and the dog and cat and postman all have there own bloody book. All the same nonsense. 1 and a bit books in this series is enough for me. I tried but had enough😐
if you like annoying, argumentative characters, gratuitous swearing, weak pathetic male leads, appallingly bad sex scenes and a terrible boring story, with far too much irrelevant and pointless details, then this could be the book for you 😉😁 👎 👎👎

Love it

I am continuing to enjoy each book is this series Alec and Keela's story in not finished. I wander what Keela's mother is going to do after that disgusting display of how unfeeling she is. Are their troubles over?

Great Narrator. Awful main character.

I kinda liked the storyline at first, but I just found the main character so annoying. She's supposed to be this kindhearted person who had a tough upbringing, making her insecure.
I get the bad upbringing part, but she just comes off as a very selfish person, who never listens and just expects the worst of everyone else. She gets mad at people for doing things, and then does the same things herself and then doesn't understand why people get mad at her.
I do enjoy the family dynamic of Slater Brothers but Keela is just horrible and through most of the book, I had a hard time believing she was an adult.
I will forever love Storm though!

The 1st book still gets my better rating

There were only 2 ways I could see the author writing this book.
Number one seriously and with some grit or comically.
Ms Casey took the latter. I think she wrote it right as Alec's retired profession was a hard one to tackle.
I had read book 1 awhile ago and was hard pressed to remember the plotline and this author doesn't tend to give you any Back story.
So I was pleased when Alec told Keela his story. it jogged mine.
The beginning of the book was slow going and there was a lot of fiery attitude from the heroine which is much like the other heroine in book one, it was the 2nd half of the book that the suspense kicked in.
And that's where old foes from book one surface.
I absolutely love mias narrating.
The Irish accent is awesome and really brings the women to life.
However her male voices are terrible even the inflection and tone doesn't do any Justice.
I really wish they used a male's voice in the male parts I think this book or series would be a hell of a lot better.
I am used to her now and I really like the story as it is unusual and where this series is going is something that I haven't read before. Don't get me wrong the occupation of the characters has been done before but I, personally haven't read a plot line like this one.
They were Some pretty serious moments That were glossed over a bit and I did cringe a bit as I think Ms Casey could have gone a bit deeper in layers with those scenes.
However apart from that I really do enjoy her writing and how she articulates her Wording.
Kanes part in this book leads us to his story and his is a little different to what I've read yet again. thus approach, I think, Is an interesting idea.
I will be reading the series as I still do enjoy this author i. It's just a little unfortunate that the narrator is solo. As there a definite cringe worthy moments when it comes to her male perspective and voice. (she gets 4 stars for the Irish accent. )
